Look what I got !!!!

Some of my preorder things came today and I could not wait to rip open that box!  Best thing about being a demo, you get the good stuff before anyone else!  First thing I had to do was play with the new clay and molds.  I can't show the molds to you but I can show you what I made with them.

Couple of tips, they are very light and blow away outside and land face side down in the dirt and if they aren't totally dry they pick up little flecks of your dirty porch on them too.  Tip two, clear your work area so it is free of all dog and cat hair, just sayin'.

And without further ado, lookie!!!!
Buttons and flowers that you make and then you can color anyway you want!   I will be making millions of these, can you imagine what an adorable button bracelet these could make?
Looks cruddy on my computer screen but that cardstock could be a new color ! Crisp Cantaloupe.

Mother's Day. Teacher appreciation. Just because.

Mother's Day. Teacher appreciation. Just because. Say thank you with this no-maintenance bouquet. There's no watering, no weeding-just enjoying. This easy-to-assemble kit comes complete with the petals, stems, and buttons to create the flowers, as well as four different tags to make this the perfect gift for any occasion. All you need is some paper, ribbon or a vase to add the finishing touches to the bouquet.
As if that weren't enough, the kit contains a "baker's dozen"! This means you can create and give (or keep) a dozen flowers, and have a bonus flower left over to pass along to someone new! Give it to someone you wouldn't normally think of: a teller at the bank, a grocery store clerk, or the librarian at your local library. Anyone you encounter on your way that you'd like to give a little "thank you" to-and introduce them to Stampin' Up!

Still Dressed Up

I have been home alone all week without a car and you would think that would allow me to get a thousand and one things accomplished.  Nope, seems if I have too much time on my hands I get nothing accomplished.

Here is a card I made using the Dress Framelits from the Spring Catalog.  It uses the DSP, Tea for Two from the Spring Catalog and will I be sorry to see that DSP go.  Can you figure out how her apron is made?  It is a square piece of Very Vanilla that I put into the Scallop Trim Corner, item # 118870 and then punched a wee bit more along each side with the Scallop Trim Border Punch, item # 118402.  The Scallop Trim Corner is on the retiring list and was available as of this morning so if you want one you had better go order NOW!!!

Check out the entire retiring accessories list which is first come, first served.  The retiring stamp list is good till June 3rd.

Wood Mount Cases Coming May 31st.

I love this time of year, and it seems with the new upcoming catalog we are getting more and more sneak peeks than ever.  Today we find out about this...


Wood Mount Cases

Introducing our new wood-mount stamp set packaging! These new cases are similar to our clear-mount boxes and fit perfectly on the shelf right next to them. They also have the images and stamp set name on the spine to make your search for the right set even easier.
Starting May 31 all wood-mount sets will come in this new packaging. And empty cases will be available with the launch of the new catalog. That means you can transfer all your old sets to these new boxes! There will even be a template for you to create your own label for your old stamp sets (available May 31). A pack of four half-size cases (3-3/4" x 5-1/2") will sell for $4.95 and a pack of four full-size cases (7-1/2" x 5-1/2") will be $6.95.

I wonder if we buy them by the case if we will get a discount?  I could organize the WORLD with these!!!!  Look closely and you may see a few sneak peeks yourself!

All Dressed Up and nowhere to go...

I have had a very productive day playing  working with the All Dressed Up collection in the Spring Catalog.  I am planning a class for April, ( yes I know it is already April ) just a few more details to be ironed out.  We will be making  a sampler of different dresses including a pair of bloomers like we used to wear in gym class.  Anyone else tortured in gym class like that ?  Here is a sneak peek of the sampler and one of the cards we may be making, no promises yet... Some of these creations were inspired by Patty Bennet.

I also got a message from My Paper Pumpkin the Stampin Up! subscription service that sends you a kit every month including everything you need to make the surprise projects except adhesive, reminding me that the time to sign up for this month is coming April 10th.

Playing with retiring colors

I spent part of today playing with some retiring colors and thought I would share them.  Can you spot the colors that are going?  I have heard thru the Stampin' Up! grapevine that some of the discontinued colors of reinkers are selling out fast.  You can place an order now thru Monday night and no matter the size, big or small, you get free shipping

This one uses Regal Rose and the Floral Framelits and Argyle Embossing Folder with Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon.  It is on a River Rock card base.  River Rock is one of the colors I will miss the most, it is like a chameleon, it can work with so many other colors and look great with every one.  

This is a Bashful Blue card base and the boots are embossed twice, once with the clouds in white and once in clear over the whole boot.  So cute in person.

This one uses Riding Hood Red as the card base and Not Quite Navy behind the Bashful Blue center that is embossed with the Cloudy Day folder.  The boots are also embossed twice, the clouds with White and the boots with Clear.
