I love the bugs...

Actually, I'm really not a fan of bugs in general, but I do love the cute little "bugs" in the retiring Stampin' Up level one hostess stamp set called "love bug".
It is a very cute set that I didn't use this set more often... too many stamps, too little time. Lol!
It's not too late to get some of your favorite stamp sets that are on the retiring list.
It's also not too late for you to become a Stampin' Up demonstrator for just $99!

Say it isn't so...

In less than two weeks we'll say goodbye to some of our favorite Stampin' Up stamp sets... including this one called Garden Whimsy.
I know it is inevitable each year that I'll have to say so long to a few of my favorites, but it doesn't make it any easier. So dramatic, huh?
Honestly there are so many great new stamp sets and items in the new catalog that in another couple of weeks I won't even remember the names of the sets we lost. BUT if there is a stamp set or two you just have to have be sure to get it now before time runs out. You can see the list of retiring stamps here.
To see what is left of the retiring accessories shop in my store here. Some of these items including retiring cardstock, ink pads and ink refills are going fast.
In other news, I'm making a new start of my own with a new job that I started yesterday. I'm officially no longer a reporter and instead I am a rental agent. I think I will really like it... although it is Saturday and I will soon have to get ready to go to work -- so that will take an adjustment. However, it is only for the summer... and I must say I do like having a day off during the week -- I feel almost rebellious sometimes when I go grocery shopping or to the beach or something in the middle of a weekday! (I know I'm such a rebel.... lol)
Well that is all for now... I have some other projects to share some come back soon! Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by....

Senak Peek!

So I finally had a minute or two to play with some of my new toys and this is what I made!

It features almost exclusively new product from the colors to the Designer Series Paper to the stamp set. It actually features six new products... can you guess what they are?

I mentioned in my last post that I'm very excited about the new catalog this year. I don't know if I'm just ready for a change or what? Really, I think it is the new color families... the samples in this catalog are gorgeous. I've already marked several that I want to copy!

I also stamped the inside of this card as well. I've been trying to get in the habit of finishing the insides of my cards as I really want to get an online Etsy shop up and running. I had one over the winter, but I really didn't put any time into it and the listings all expired.

Maybe I'll try again later this week... not sure if I will get to it though. I've been in a major photo re-organization project this week. I've sorted through and filed all my photos from the 70s, 80s and 90s... all I have left is the 2000s and I have LOTS of photos from the past 10 years as the year 2000 was actually when I became a scrapbooker and started focusing more on taking photos! Hopefully I can finish up before the end of next week.

Here is the inside of the card (in case you were interested):

Well I'm off to get some more work done today (perhaps tackle a few more photos???). I hope you enjoy your weekend. Thanks for stopping by!

Wow... it's been a long time!

Hi there! Remember me? I apologize for being so out of touch lately. Do you ever find that once you get out of the routine of something it is so hard to get back into it? Well, that is what happened here with the little blog. I kept saying "I'm going to update, I'm going to update," but it just never happened.

So even though I don't have anything really new to share with you today, I decided to post anyway.

This card is actually one I made months ago. Nothing too spectacular, but I think it came out cute. I was playing with the Chic Boutique stamp set -- too cute.

I do have lots of news for you, though. As you know we are now into the six month of the year (crazy, huh?) and that means the Stampin' Up last chance list is out. You can check it out here. You have until June 30 to get any of the stamps sets off this list and then they are gone forever.

There are also last chance lists for the decor elements and for retiring accessories. You can see those here and here. Don't panic with those lists though -- they are both very long, but can be deceiving. The decor elements list is long because it has to list each retiring element in every color and every size, which means there may be as many as 12 entries for just one image.

As for the retiring accessories list... this is also very long, but a lot of this is because of the color renovation. Anything in one of the 31 retiring colors is on that list so that means ink pads, refills, cardstock, brads, ribbon, markers, buttons... etc. etc. Also, all of our punches are on the list, but that is only because most of them are being reconfigured to the new style -- so they'll still be in the new catalog, but they'll just be in a new format.

Also, for those of you who have hosted a workshop with me in the past year (July 2009 - June 2010), watch your mailbox for a special invitation. I hope to have them all out by the end of the week.

Lastly, I got the brand new 2010-2011 catalog and Oh. My. Word. I was squealing on the couch as I looked at it! There's lots of great new stamp sets and the accessories... fabulous! I can't wait to order on July 1.

I did get to pre-order some of the new goodies and I hope to be able to play a bit later this week and give you a few sneak peeks here on the little blog -- so check back soon. (I promise I won't disappear for a month again!)

Thanks for stopping by!
