Sunday Share - more cards at The Wesbrooke

 There have been so many different things going on in the Stampin' Up! world this month that I need to catch you up on my late April visit to The Wesbrooke - I had such a good time (as usual) with the ladies and they do enjoy taking a break from their day to make cards with me . . . .
They were waiting for me to take their picture after the cards were done!
Here's the two cards we made - the one with the flowers was definitely a bit too messy using glue sticks - which is the adhesive of choice at the residence . . .  but we did manage to get everyone's done without too many sticky fingers :-)

Remember to check out all the retiring products against your wish list before they are gone for good - June 3rd is the last day to order from the current catalogue - both the Annual and Occasions Catalogues expire that night! Click here to place your order - look for the "Last Chance Products" and they will arrive at your door a few days later - super easy and quick too!

Here's one of my favourite sets that is retiring June 3rd - I'm so sad to see it go as I haven't made nearly enough cards with the set - you can get the Humming Along set now by clicking here and get the bundle at an amazing price for both the stamp set and coordinating dies . . . and then make these beautiful cards and more at home!

Watch my posts next month for information on my Catalogue Launch events - I will try to have them up on time even though we will be traveling for the first two weeks in June and may not always have internet connections.

Happy stamping!

Sunday Share - Spotlight on Dragonfly Dreams Stamps and Dies before they retire!

Dragonfly Dreams were a favourite for me from their first catalogue appearance - sadly they will be retiring at the end of this catalogue on June 3rd so get yours now before they are gone for good!  Once you have this set and coordinating dies in your craft room you can make some of these stunning card ideas for yourself and much more -
Not only are there coordinating dragonfly dies and stamps, there are also the bumble bees with the matching stamps - making it so easy to create cards and layouts for any event. And did you notice that grouping of dragonflies flying across some of the cards?? Perfect when they are die-cut in foil with a waterclour wash background :-) or in cardstock for a monochrome effect!
And take a look at the sentiments - especially the one that says "Enjoy Your Special Day" - perfect for any occasion including birthdays, grads, retirement . . . . almost any special day for someone you want to recognize!
Want to get your set before they go bye-bye? Then shop here and get both the stamps and dies . . .  here's a quick look at both - so worth it!! I will be placing an order tomorrow afternoon and can add your order - this will be my last order before the catalogue ends and I go on vacation May 30th but you can still shop online anytime and the order will go directly to your home!

The stamps set is #142924 and the dies are #142749
If you have any questions on any of the current catalogue products please let me know! Can't wait to share the new catalogue in June so stay tuned for my Catalogue Launch parties - details will be announced here and on my events calendar once we return from our trip mid-June.

Happy stamping!

Sunday Share - Happy Mother's Day

A quick post to wish all of you a Happy Mother's Day - we are visiting our older son Mike and grandkids this weekend - loving the warm weather in W Kelowna for our camping stay :-)
Enjoyed a couple of fun dinners with all the kids (including a build your own tacos dinner camping style!) and having a quieter day today getting a visit with our oldest granddaughter Hayley

Back to regular posts next week - and if you want to shop because "your family said you should" then here's my link to my store!

Sunday Share - more card ideas for you and retiring products too!

I promised last week I would share some more cards with you and highlight some of my favourites that are retiring the end of this month (well, technically June 3rd but we know most products don't last that long!).

Our Stamp club projects last month featured a gorgeous bundle from the Occasions Catalogue called Beauty Abounds - the sad news is that bundle is retiring at the end of the catalogue but the good news is you will still be able to purchase the stamp set (Beauty Abounds) and the dies (Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies) separately (but no 10% savings). Why not make your budget happy and order while you can save - just click here and start ordering!! We did a #simplestamping card (above) as well as a really pretty one using the dies (below) using all the retiring In Colors on the same card! I got this card idea from a friend who is also a demo named Eva - thanks Eva! The Night of Navy card base and envelope featured above is on p 26 in the Occasions Catalogue and called Happiness Blooms Memories & More Cards/Envelopes - ready to stamp and add your own ideas in two sizes! Click here for more information on this great product!
Our other project used the retiring Amazing Life Stamp Set and the coordinating Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies also from the Occasions Catalogue - and the bundle is still available at the 10% savings and the dies will be carrying over into the next catalogue. I do like those dies and know that you will be seeing lots of cards with them featured as frames or rectangles - love the stitched look! Click here to get yours now so you don't miss out! And pick up some of that Gingham Gala 6" x 6" DSP while you are making up your order - it's perfect for so many card ideas and has 48 sheets so a great buy!
I have a new team member Katy and she shared a cute poster with me that her hubby Alex texted to her - talk about a super supportive hubby - I think he just gave her permission to have "both" hobbies, don't you??
Remember to check your wish list against the retiring items (click here) and order while your choices are still available - I have an order going in May 9th and can add to it if you don't want to order online. Let me know what you want, plus payment information and I'll be happy to put it in for you :-)

If you have placed orders with me in the past year I have a new catalogue ordered for you - those not living locally will get yours in the mail and everyone else watch for my Catalogue Launch events coming at the end of June/early July. More details will follow closer to the time!!
And mark your calendar and RSVP for my next Make it Monday on May 20th (yes I know it's a long weekend but sometimes people are looking for some crafting time too!). RSVP right here! so you don't forget and I know to make up kits for you and anyone you bring! At these events I encourage people to use their existing supplies with their project ideas. Why would I do that, you ask? Well the answer is simple - so then you have room to buy new stuff - LOL!!

Happy stamping!
