Just Five More days.....

There's just five more days left of the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog. If there is something you've had your eye on, please be sure to order before Friday!

This card was one of my swaps from Convention last year. I loved the Domestic Goddess Suite of products. Just so fun and retro!

This card used the Domestic Goddess Designer Series Paper, which is actually on sale for just $8.21 per pack. As I write, the Domestic Goddess DSP is still available, but don't delay!

The stamp set on this card is called House & Home and it is really cute. Go check out all the images here. I love the little chair... I'm not sure why!

As sad as I am to see some of these items going, I can't even begin to describe how beautiful the new catalog is. Would you like one? It is my free gift to you, I just ask that you pay the $5 for shipping. Send me an e-mail and I can send you a pay pal invoice for the $5.00 and have it on its way to you on Tuesday. Book a private class with me and the catalog is yours completely free -- I'll pay shipping, too!

I'm off to do some more cleaning... I hope you are enjoying your Memorial Day weekend. Be sure to thank a service man or woman for their dedication to our country and freedom!

Feeling Grungy?

Hi there... I'm back to share another card that features a retiring stamp set. This is a great "boy" card stamp set -- especially those tween years. Here I made the stamp set a bit more "girly" with my color choices, but it really is a great stamp set for a variety of occasions and people.

It goes great with another favorite of mine (that sadly I never even inked up the rubber), Extreme Elements. Both are retiring as of May 31. So get them here ASAP.

You may be able to score this stamp set featured today, called Grunge Rock, at my Buy One Get One event on Saturday, June 2. I have A LOT of retiring products including stamps, paper, ink and embellishments that will be up for grabs. This is going to be a fantastic deal as for every $1 you spend in cash & carry retiring products, you'll get equal dollars to spend in the brand spanking new 2012-2013 Idea Book and Catalog. Score, right? That all happens on Saturday, June 2 at my house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. E-mail me if you want more details or need directions.

In the meantime, here is another card that features "Grunge Rock."

This one was the Christmas Card I made last year for my nephew.... I told you this was a versatile set. It's designed to be a birthday set (well, it has a "Happy Birthday" sentiment included with it), but I think it worked perfectly for a teenager's Christmas card!

Don't let any of your favorite stamp sets disappear before you scoop them up. While I do have a large assortment of stamps ready to find new homes (over 80 of them), I can assure you I only have one of each!

I hope you enjoy a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. See you here on the old blog-o soon....

It's a Flower Fest!

Boy am I glad it is Friday. This week was rough. I'm happy I'll be able to spend some time with my Mom tomorrow and hopefully get caught up on a bunch of things (mostly cleaning) that need to get done at the house, too.

I thought I'd share another card featuring a favorite retiring stamp set of mine. This one is called Flower Fest and I love how it looks like crayons when you stamp it. Click on the photo to see it up close - you'll see what I mean. Go ahead -- I'll wait. ;)

This also features two retiring In Colors - Blushing Bride and Poppy Parade. I really like both of these colors. Oh, actually I just realized there is another retiring color mixed in there -- Pear Pizzazz. That has been one of my absolute favorite greens lately. If you haven't stocked up, run to the online store (or rather click) ASAP as the In Color items tend to sell out quickly. Just two more weeks until we have the new Idea Book and Catalog to play with! I know you're going to love it! Want a copy? E-mail me and I'll set it up to be delivered directly to your door. I just ask that you pay for the $5.00 shipping.

If you're local consider attending my Last Chance/Sneak Peek Event on May 25 and you can pick up your copy for free! Please e-mail me and let me know you'd like to come so I can make sure I have enough catalogs on hand.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Farewell to some favorites....

Good afternoon! Happy Saturday before Mother's Day. My thoughts are definitely with my Mom today. She hasn't been feeling well and has been staying up at Beth Israel trying to find out what is going haywire in her system. I hope the doctors find some answers soon!

In the meantime, I puttering around in my stamp room. Tidying. Cleaning. Browsing. Stamping. A little of everything. Part of that cleaning includes saying goodbye to a few of my favorite stamp sets that are retiring with the close of the 20111-2012 Idea Book and Catalog, which ends on May 31.

One of my favorite stamp sets to see go this year is Winter Post. And while it is not the holiday season right now, it truly is one of the sets that made me release an audible "Oh" when I read that it was going this year. Check out some of the cards I've made with this beauty:

I think this last one was my favorite. The stamp set really didn't look like much in the catalog, but had so much potential! It was a great stamp set for winter themed cards and scrapbook pages, too. I loved the snowflake in that set. It looked beautiful even when it was just stamped solo on an envelope... a great hint to the reciever that something special was inside that envelope! Here is the whole set of stamps in the set (click on the link):  Winter Post Stamp Set - by Stampin' Up!

Want to order it now? Click here. Thanks for stopping by today. I hope to bring you some more posts about some of my favorite stamp sets soon. If we don't chat tomorrow... have a great Mother's Day!
