New Catalog & a New Sale Start September 1st


Just one more day for the Holiday Catalog to go live and if that isn't exciting enough there is a new sale that starts tomorrow too.


For the next three weeks Stampin' Up! is offering special itmes on sale 25% off. Each week there will be new items on sale. Here is what is on sale this week from Thursday, Sept. 1st through Sept. 7th. Remember, one week only. Love the enamel shapes and especially the metallic enamel shapes. They add so much to your card and go through the mail with no problems. I'm stocking up!

25 off

When Stampin' Up introduced the limited-time Thoughtful Branches Bundle on August 1, they said it would be available through August 31 or while supplies last. Well, happy day—there is still inventory available! They will continue to make the Thoughtful Branches Bundle available while they have supplies. According to them "once our inventory is depleted, this exclusive bundle will no longer be available, nor will it be offered in future publications." I had hoped it would come back in a future catalog but it seems that it will not so if you love it and didn't get it yet there is still time but hurry.  There is no way to know when the supply runs out.  I love this set. It is so versatile. Who would imagine the hydrangea flower as a pumpkin! Check out some of the different ways to use this set on Pinterest. Here are a couple of my projects using this set:

HydrangaI CASED this card from Dawn Olchefski with just a few changes I made. I thought it was so different and clever the way she curved the bottom white piece of card stock. Just use a round plate or bowl to make a template.  Here is the inside:

Now what really pushed me to buy this set was seeing that the hydrangea flower could easily be made into lilacs which are my very favorite flower. It's what I miss the most living in Florida.

Lilac gift bagThis gift bag was such fun to make. Just stamp and cut the hydrangea flower into three pieces and layer to create a lilac. I used the little clothespins to attach the tag and learned a handy tip from my upline and friend Catherine Harwood. Put a glue dot on the inside of the clothespin and attatch the tag. When you remove the clothespin to get into the bag the tag doesn't fall off.

Well, that's a lot of info for one day. If you're in Florida you are probably being hit with a lot of rain. So pull out some stamps and make some cards!

Thanks for stopping by.
