Retiring Lists are Here!!!

I can't believe it's this time of year again!  Almost time for a new Stampin' Up! catalog!!!!  You can order from the new catalog starting May 31st.  And you can buy retiring items until June 3rd (or while supplies last for accessories!).  

What are retiring items?!  If you are new to Stampin' Up you may not know that retiring items are the items that will not be available for purchase when the new catalog comes out.  (This year there are a few days of overlap where you can purchase from the new catalog and the retired long as items are still in stock.)  We need to clear room in the catalog to make way for NEW AND FABULOUS items!  

Here is the retiring stamps list...

Here is the retiring accessories list...

***The retiring accessories are only available while supplies last!  And some things will sell out FAST!!  They will update that list daily by 4:00PM MST.***

Order online 24/7:


Email me your order:


Call me with your order: 801-404-1394

Let me know if you have any questions!  If you don't currently have a demonstrator and need a catalog...just let me know and I will make sure you get one!  If you are my current customer:  I will be getting you a catalog automatically.  :)  

More Photopolymer Fun...

In my last post I shared a card I made with the Photopolymer Stamp Set, Designer Type.  That one was a bit more vintage-y. Today I wanted to share a fun and bright birthday card I made with the same set...

Love those pennants!  They are too much fun!  I used the Sunshine and Sprinkles Designer Series Paper.  And the colors are Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Marina Mist, Old Olive, and So Saffron.  Here are some close-up's...

I embossed the stamping using the Black Craft Pad and Clear Embossing Powder.  And LOVE this Scallop Dots ribbon!!!  And that Cloudy Day embossing folder....TOO MUCH FUN!!!

I hope you enjoy this card!  Thanks so much for visiting!!!

Photopolymer Fun!!!

Stampin' Up! has so many fun things going on these days!  Just about a month ago...they came out with their first TOTALLY clear stamp set!  They have waited awhile to start making these clear sets until they found the quality they were looking for.

What  makes them so great?!

  • They're entirely transparent for perfect placement every time!
  • They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last.
  • Can you say sticky? (Don't worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
  • They're age tested. They won't yellow or cloud up over time.
  • I could go on, but why don't you try them for yourself?
They are clearly a great choice.

Here are the two stamp sets they currently offer in this material...

Designer Type Photopolymer Set: ($13.95 Includes 57 pieces. Recommend clear blocks A, B, G, F, and I. Purchase separately.)

Bombs Away Birthday: (Includes 7 pieces. Recommend clear blocks C and H. Purchase separately.)

Order either one of these on my website 24/7:  Or just email me at

Now don't worry!  Of course I have a stamped project to show you using these stamps!  This card uses the Designer Type set...

I just can never get enough of this fab Crumb Cake color!  SO FUN!  Here are some close-up's of the details...

I hope you enjoy!  Thanks so much for visiting!

April Club 3D...

On Friday I shared the card we made at club last week. is the other project we made...

We do a card and a 3D item each month.  I think it is fun to see the different ways to use our amazing Stampin' Up! products!  This month we used the Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit that is in the Mini.  It's an amazing deal and so much fun to use!  You get flower pieces and brads for 9 full flowers.  Plus tags and twine and a stamp!  But it would be SO easy to break up the flowers to make a  lot more than 9!  (The flowers have 10 layers to even divide in half and you will still have a full flower!)  Here are some more close-up photos of the treat that is in the pocket...

See how full that flower is with all those layers?!  We used all 10 layers on this flower.  Then just added some leaves using the Build-A-Blossom punch. 

Here are some pictures of just the pocket that the treat is in...

These FABULOUS tags come with the kit.  And the white flower also comes with the kit...but this is one I divided in half to get more of the flowers out of a kit.  And I still think it looks fantastic!

Hope you enjoy this project!  Thanks for visiting!

April Club Card...

Last night was my monthly club night!  As always...we had a great time!  :)  I want to share the card we made last night...

Can I say that I LOVE the NEW This and That product line.  This Epic Day collection is SO MUCH FUN!  I used the Designer Series Paper and the (A-MA-ZING!!!) Washi tape on this card. 

***Click HERE to see all the products in this amazing bundle that is on sale THIS MONTH ONLY!!!***
Then go to my website: to order!

The Washi tape is really so much fun!  You can easily trim the edges to be a flag/pennant end or whatever you want.  But I loved the ripped end of it.  Too much fun! 

Here are a few more pics of the details...

The sentiment stamp set I used..."Feel Goods" in the Mini and is a MUST!  There are so many fun and unique sentiments in this set!  So I wanted to make it shine and really stand out on this card!  And gotta love that butterfly from the "Papillon Potpourri" stamp set! 

If you have any questions about my club, how it works, how you can join, etc...feel free to let me know!  We would love to have you join...whether you live close or are out of town!  It's a great way to grow your stamping supplies on a budget and get FREE projects EVERY month!!!  Just send me an email at if you want to know more!

Need a Fun Gift?!

I LOVE the Soda Pop Tops in the Mini Catalog!  Sure hope they show up in the new catalog!!!  If you have been looking for ways to use these...or if you are looking for a fun gift for is a Soda Pop Top necklace I made...

I just...
  1. Smashed a Soda Pop Top in the Big Shot (Open both tabs on the Multi-Purpose Platform then layer a Cutting Pad, your Soda Pop Top, another Cutting Pad.  Run through Big Shot and VOILA!)  
  2. Punch hole in Soda Pop Top with 1/16" hole punch and add a jump ring
  3. Stamped images using the Collage Curios stamp set
  4. Punched out with the 1" Circle Punch
  5. Embossed with Clear Embossing Powder
  6. Adhered into the smashed Soda Pop Top
  7. Applied a thick layer of Crystal Effects over the stamped circle
  8. Add a Rhinestone on the butterfly
  9. Let it dry. 
  10. Add a chain or some ribbon (like I used here) for the necklace
 Easy, peasy! 

Then of course you have to wrap it cute!

I just made a fun tag and then tied to the bag with the necklace in it!

Hope you enjoy!  Thanks so much for visiting!

Event Special Touches...

A little while ago, a few demonstrator friends and I got together to put on an event for our local downlines.  (The other demonstrators that signed up under us.)  It was a lot of fun!  I just wanted to show a few of the special touches we added to hopefully convey to them how special they are to us!  I didn't get the best photos...but hopefully you can get the idea of it! 

Here are some pinwheels I made for the candy dishes we had on each of the crafting tables!  Who doesn't need a little sugar when they are stamping?!

These were done with the wonderful Sale-A-Bration paper.  I also used the buttons from the buttons and ribbon pack.  (We held this event while Sale-A-Bration was going it was a fun way to add to our own celebration!  :) )

These are the name tags I made for everyone...

These were fun water bottles we had on our snack table that Kasia (one of the demos I did this event with) created...

These are just a few special touches we added that you could use for any event/party you plan!  Hope you enjoy!  Thanks for visiting!

Pretty In Pink Thank You!

Just a quick post today to share a quick thank you card! I ♡ LOVE ♡ the large "Thanking You" stamp set in the NEW Stampin' Up!...
