Getting closer....

It's nearly that time of year, where the retirement list comes out.  That means the in-colours we've loved the past 2 years are leaving too.  Which one will you miss the most?  I'm torn.  I am drawn to Call Me Clover, but I also love the perfect raspberry Lovely Lipstick (am I the only one who wants a real lipstick that colour?).  Now's the time to make sure that you have all the reinkers, cardstock, etc before they sell out.  While you are looking in my Online store, be sure to check out the Clearance Rack while you are there.

Your chance to order from the New Annual Catalogue right now!

Feeling in a creative slump now that Sale a Bration is over, the news is grim, there is still a chronic shortage of staples at the grocery store, everything is shut and we are all working from home and homeschooling?  Me too.  

But this might help!  The Ornate Garden Suite.  Not a cure for the Covid-19 pandemic but it is a pretty distraction.  I also love getting the chance to purchase products from the new catalogue before it is even released.  Here's what it contains:

See these ornate layers dies?  They work really well with the stitched rectangle dies from the current Annual Catalogue to make seriously gorgeous frames.

These flower images are really fun to colour as well - by coloured pencil, watercoloring, ink and blender pen, markers or the Stampin' Blends.

Here are some beautiful samples made with these products to give you some inspiration:

I can't wait to see what else the new Annual Catalogue holds!  But until then, at lease I can play with these pretties.  :-)

Dark Days Ahead - but it's not all bad news!

Yes, we are facing a few months of limiting social activity, and the possibility of kids being sent home from school, but it's not all doom and gloom.  When you have your Stampin' Up! supplies and a dash of creativity, you can keep the self-isolation blues away.  Maybe even create a few "Get Well Soon" or "Thank You" cards for friends while you are at it?

Sale a Bration finishes at the end of the month, so why not stock up while you still have the chance to earn freebies?

Shop Online without leaving your couch.  I'll try to post some cute inspiration as often as I can.

Happy Stamping!

August already, which means it's practically Christmas.

It feels like the year is just racing along and the next time I blink it will be Christmas!  It just so happens that Stampin' Up! is reading my mind, because I was able to get a peek at the upcoming Occasions Mini which features plenty of Christmas and Halloween products.  I have even placed my preorder so I can start playing with these products too!

You will be able to look at it too when it goes live in September.  Be warned, you'll want everything.  It's hard to keep my order reasonable when the whole catalogue is gorgeous!

But until I have been able to play with the Christmas ideas, I have something I have been working on lately:

These cards are fairly "clean and simple" but I love the clean lines, and bright pop of colour against a plain white background.  They didn't take too long to put together either.  Easy to make a stack of them while binging on Stranger Things!
