Don’t Miss Out on These Retiring Items!

MainAd_retired2016_OLO_Apr1816_USCAI’m still a little jet lagged from my trip home from Salt Lake City- didn’t crawl into bed until 3 am…. haven’t been up that late in a LONG time!

Stampin’ Up! just released their retirement list for the 2015-16 Annual Catalog and 2016 Occasions Catalog. In addition to a long list of retiring stamp sets, there are also tools, brads, ribbons, buttons, scissors, big shot dies, In-Color 2014-16 products and much more, that are going away forever!

These items are while supplies last, hope you will consider ordering from me, in my online store, just click “Shop Now” button here on my blog, then click the “Shop Now” tab at the top of the page and then click “Retiring Products”  or here is the link: http://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/CategoryPage.aspx?categoryid=100700

 

I’m having some computer problems as I type this… and the Stampin’ Up! website is very bogged down with thousands of demos trying to get on right now. I hope you can open this is the retirement list as a PDF:

Christmas Joy! Creative Inking Blog Hop!

creative hop

Welcome to another month of stamping inspiration from a talented group of ladies! I can’t wait to see what my fellow demonstrators have to offer us this month!  You know I always have a hard time picking just one project to share with you on the hop. So for our “Christmas Joy” theme, I decided to show you what my Make and Take project was for my team retreat this weekend in beautiful Lake Luzerne, NY (the Adirondacks of Upstate New York).

True story- yesterday there was a mini snow squall and we actually had snow on the ground… luckily it melted within an hour! I’m soooo not ready for the real stuff. But hopefully this cute guy will suffice- this would be enough snow for me!

IMG_7427

 

I was inspired by the snowman on the Stampin’ Up! blog last winter, never had a chance to make him! One of my downline requested we learn how to make him, so I figured it out and prepped it for everyone to make on our 4th Lynnzcrafters Team Crafty Girls Get-Away.

Want to know how to make him yourself?

make 8 whisper white circles in the following three sizes: 1 3/4″, 2″, and 2 1/2″. You will trim off the bottom 1/4″ to make them all flat. Score in the middle and fold in half. Then glue backs together (like a honeycomb) and glue to make a completely closed “snowball”. The hat is made with designer series paper: the strip is 1 1/2″ x 5″ and the two circles are 1 1/4″ and 2″.

Although glue dots held him together okay, it wasn’t sturdy enough, so I inserted a barbarque skewer up through all three snowballs and about 3/4″ above the top ball- this is so the top hat can be secured to the top of the snowman.

The then nose and two arms are from the bird builder punch and his eyes are from the owl builder punch. Then just string your greeting from a piece of linen thread and tie onto his arms.

Well, some of my team had some other ideas- look what additions they came up with:

IMG_7639

Do you like the touch of holly and the red bird on his hat? Those are not Stampin’ Up! products, but a cute additional touch- thanks Judy!

IMG_7540

Sorry this one isn’t a good quality photo- but can you see how Tiffany used our red pom-pom trim as his scarf? And she put the word “peace” on instead of “Noel”. Isn’t Frosty just adorable? You can make it too- and what a fun project to do with the kids!

We also worked on some other Christmas projects on our retreat:

IMG_7644

This was Amye’s Make-and-Take for each one of us… isn’t this Clean And Simple technique so sweet?? This designer series paper is amazing! I’m sure it’s going to be a top seller from this Holiday Catalog!

 

IMG_7648

 

Now let’s talk about STAMPS! When I started planning for this blog post I knew that I had my Frosty the Snowman project and was hoping for more fun and inspiring cards and 3D items to show you. Look at this gorgeous card that Laurie prepared for our Make-and-Take! Don’t you just love the pine trees in this new set called Wonderland? We stamped in Smokey Slate, Tip-Top-Taupe and in Craft White, embossed in White and with Dazzling Details (glitter) on the white pines. Love this card so much!

We did so much stamping, crafting and creating all weekend long, it was hard to pack up and come home, our mojo was really flowing! I took pictures of each stamper with all her creations, but I don’t want to spoil any surprises (a lot of gifts were created this weekend). I’ll be sure to post when the coast is clear for sure.

Retiring Past Paper Pumpkin Kits

Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful dads out there. My dad is away this weekend, so we will be celebrating one night this week when he is home from camp. I decided to catch up on some work in the craft room, including blogging and sending some emails. I thought you would be interested to learn that Stampin’ Up! has announced that there will be some of our past kits that will be retiring on June 27th- so if you want them, get them before they’re gone!

 

http://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ItemList.aspx?categoryid=112102

Hurry and order before June 27th, after that they are “retired” and no longer available. As an added incentive, for any online orders between now and June 30th (including these Paper Pumpkin specials, OR anything you just want to order), I have a FREE gift for you- that I will pop in the mail (or local peeps I will give you) as my thanks! I am very close to reaching my sales goal for the month of June, and I need a little help to push me over, (about $500 away from a sweet spot too). So,  I will give you either a clear “D” size paper pumpkin block or one sheet of dimensions with each $25 order from my online store. You must use Hostess Code: XFNCQJF2
Thank you so much for stopping by, have a wonderful afternoon.
