Since we are deep into summer temperatures here in Texas, and since Texas has an abundance of beautiful flowers, our buffet this month will center around Stampin' Ups new Daisy punch and stamp set. You will be making four cards along with a box to store them in until you need them. This is a wonderful chance to increase your card supply or as a gift for someone special. 3 of the 4 cards have been left blank because you will be able to choose the sentiment you want on the card. The thank you card can also be changed to a different sentiment.
Happy Saturday everyone! Are you gearing up for Summer in North Texas? Since I spend so much time indoors to avoid the heat, it's a perfect opportunity to stamp and create. The days and weeks seem to go by so quickly, and here it is time for another card buffet. We are also at the end of another Stampin' Up catalog with the new one due to debut on June 1st. It's always exciting to work with new products and share them with our friends and customers.
Here we are at the end of April and in the middle of the retiring season at Stampin' Up. It's always a sad time along with an exciting time. I never like to see some of my favorite items retire, but look forward to what is new, especially new In Colors. The cards this month feature some retiring products as well as some things that will still be in the new catalog. You have until May 31st to grab retiring products that you can't live without. Some things are already sold out, so if there is anything you might want, please check with me so I can see if the items are still available.
1. Fresh Fruit - I love this set because of all the wonderful
colors and of course the luscious fruit. You can also
change the sentiment to Get Well, Happy Birthday or
even Thinking of You.
2. Sympathy - The paper and ribbon is retiring, but the
stamp set will be in the new catalog. Again you can
change the sentiment to what you might need.
3. Mother's Day - I am really sad to lose the Botanical
Blooms set. But I will keep it and use it for my own
cards. Don't have your Mother anymore? This would
be a great Get Well or Thank You or Birthday card.
It would even work as a sympathy card.
4. Hello Baby - Here is another stamp set with matching
framelits that is retiring. Besides the yellow, I have made
the card in pink, blue and green. The choice is yours.
Happy Spring to everyone! Being a northern girl, temps in the 80's feel more like summer to me, but at least we don't have the snow and ice. That is always something to be thankful for in my book. I love seeing the tree outside my deck budding, and all the flowering trees are looking magnificent. And when Spring arrives, Easter comes to my mind. This month we will be making two Easter cards in preparation to bless someone special in your life for this wonderful holiday.
What a beautiful Saturday here in Fort Worth. It's hard to believe it is still February because it certainly feels like spring or early summer. We are in the middle of Stampin' Up's Sale-A-Bration. With every $50 order, you can choose a FREE item from the special brochure. This month we will be using a few of these products to create some fun cards. I hope you like them and will send them to someone special in your life.
Happy New Year everyone! What a great start to a new year. A new president and administration. A new Occasions catalog along with Sale-A-Bration. And it's a very beautiful day here in Fort Worth - sunny and 64 degrees. That's picnic weather, right? Maybe not, but it sure is beautiful. This is the time of year I break out the Valentine sets to create some cards in plenty of time for Valentine's Day. The new Occasions catalog has a wonderful stamp set along with framelits that I am loving. I think this Occasions catalog is the best one I've seen in a long time. With every $50 you spend from either the Annual or Occasions catalog you can choose a free item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. There is an adorable chicken stamp set which we will be using this month. So I hope to see many of you this month to create some cute cards together.
Happy Valentine's Day - aren't the little envelopes just the cutest!
Valentine #2 - Valentines can be a little "grungy".
Happy Day Chicken - with new Hexagon embossing folder
Happy Fall to everyone! I am thoroughly enjoying the cooler weather that has finally arrived in Texas. Having the windows open and the AC off is a true blessing. Fresh air is wonderful! Buffet this month will include cards to help us prepare for the upcoming holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas. It's never too early to get a jump on card making.
