Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted!  Yoikes!!  To my followers, my apologies!  BUT know that I have been busy and have some fun stuff to share!!  Including some works with sneak peek items from the NEW CATALOGUE!!!  youpie!  Yep, just a week away before your eyeballs will be glued open and glazed over looking at new papercraft goodies.

That said, it’s time to say GOOOOOOODBYE to a lot of other items!  As most of you likely already know, the retired list has been up for a little while now and there’s only 1 WEEK LEFT before those products disappear.  This is inclusive of Stampin’ Up!’s colour refresh.  Any of the retiring colours that you once loved or continue to love will be GONE!!  Click on the image below and you’ll be directed to my site to see what’s left.  Get yourself stocked up on refills, etc. while you can.  I also strongly recommend you nab those things you’ve had your hearts set on because again, once these puppies retire, you’ll likely never see them again!!   You have until JUNE 3rd!!!MainAd_RetiredList_DBWS_4.24.13_NA

Okay, now for some projects!  Sooooo, here’s 2 for you tonight….

So it’s been a little while since my last post – but that’s not to say I haven’t been busy!  I have a few things to share with this post so hope you’ll stick around!  With the new Stampin’ Up! catalogue fast approaching, there has already been a refresh in the colour palettes!  You should know that some colours are retiring and older ones are coming back!  Below is the official refresh colour list.  Not only will this apply to inks but it applies to all things “colour” – ie. ribbon, buttons, brads, etc.  If you own any of the retiring colours, and love them, NOW is the time to stock up on any paper, ink refills, ribbon etc that you might need to hold you over!!  Ink refills are already flying out the door so don’t wait!!

Since it’s been a while, I thought I’d post a couple of cards I made for Easter!  So here’s some of what I’ve been up to:


A super simple card and I once again popped my butterfly up as in the previous Easter Card posted on my blog.  Here’s what I used to create this card:

PAPER :  Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, DSP – “Flirtatious”

STAMPS:  Teeny Tiny Wishes, Papillon Potpourri

INK:  Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade

TOOLS:  Big Shot – Chevron Embossing Folder, Elegant Butterfly Punch

ACCESSORIES:  Basic Rhinestones


I made two more cards but kept them the same – switching only the colour themes.


Again, fairly simple.  While not necessary, it’s amazing what a little embossing can do!  Here’s what I used to create these cards:

PAPER :  Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Whisper White

STAMPS:  Teeny Tiny Wishes, Daydream Medallions

INK:  Lucky Limeade, Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo, Calypso Coral, Rich Razzleberry

TOOLS:  Big Shot – Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder, Floral Frames Framelits

ACCESSORIES:  Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals


For the avid crafters, if you’ve been to the Stampin’ Up! site lately, you’ve likely noticed that they had FREE SHIPPING over the weekend.  For those who didn’t hear the news, you still have until 11:59pm tonight!!  If you need to stock up on anything (ie. retiring colour supplies!!!) and want to avoid shipping fees, hop on over to my Online Store before the Free shipping ends!

Phew, I think that’s it for now!  I’ve done a couple of cool little projects that I can’t wait to share but until the “receivers” receive, I won’t be posting those just yet.  But very soon!

Happy Crafting!
