Itty Bitty Tutti-Frutti Sweet Nugget Box!

Project 42 (1)

Hi Stampin’ Peeps!

Isn’t this SWEET box so cute?!! Guess what? It’s really easy, too! Another plus? Even though there are only three nuggets in the pic, this box actually holds four! It makes a great gift for all of your SWEET friends! πŸ˜‰

There are lots of retiring products used in this project, but so far, everything is still available! The Stamp Set is called COOL TREATS, the DSP is called TUTTI-FRUTTI and the fruit punches are part of theΒ ITTY BITTY FRUIT PUNCH PACK!

Remember: Retiring stamp sets are guaranteed through May 25, but everything else is WHILE SUPPLIES LAST, so if there’s retiring product that you want…don’t wait to shop!

Here’s an up-close pic of the boxes:

Project 42 (2)

I started out with a piece of DSP that measured 5.25in x 4.75in, and scored as follows:

With the 5.25 measurement across the top of your Trimmer or Simply Scored tool:
Score at: 5/8 and 4 5/8

With the 4.75 measurement across the top:
Score at: 1/2, 1 1/8, 2 5/8, and 3 1/4

After that, your box should be easy to assemble!

PS: Gently fold on the score lines, but don’t use your bone folder! πŸ™‚

Happy Stampin’! πŸ™‚

Cool Coffee Cafe Tutti-Frutti Card!

Card 104

Hi Stampers!!

I know it’s supposed to be spring, but the crazy weather we’re having doesn’t feel like spring…this card, however, reminds me of summer! It’s not my favorite season, but how can you not love the citrus background, and the COOL TREATS Stamp Set?!!

By the way…the DSP (Designer Series Paper) and the Stamp Set for this card are both on the retiring list, so if you want these products, you need to get them as soon as you can! Stamp Sets are guaranteed until May 25, but the DSP is WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

*If you don’t have them already, get the retiring lists for both the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog, and the 2018 Occasions Catalog,Β here!

Also, here’s the video I made to show you how to make this card:

OnStage Highlights & More!


Hi Stampers!!

OMG!! With so much going on this week, I FINALLY have time to share some pics with you from my first OnStage!! For those who don’t know, OnStage is a demonstrator only “conference-like” event held by Stampin’ Up! They happen in April and in November, and can be 1-3 days long! This year, all of the April events were one day long! It was awesome to know stampers from around the world were all meeting to stamp on the same day–although in reality, because of time changes, we actually stamped on two different days, but still…VERY awesome!! πŸ˜‰

Here’s a pic of me on the second floor of the convention center, on the way up to our event room on the third floor, along with some pics of our lovely table:


Once at the event, I met up with Team Stamp It, and I finally got to meet Tami White (our Team Leader) in person! (I actually met her on Friday night with some other teammates, but I didn’t get a pic until Saturday!)

OnStage 5
You guys…she’s just as amazing in person as she is online, and I’m super excited I got to be there to help celebrate her $2M in sales achievement!! She’s the first demo in Stampin’ Up! history to reach this milestone!!

OnStage 6
I also got to meet several other members of the team! I took tons of pics, and still somehow missed so many amazing peeps!! Here are few I did get pics with though:


There were about 20 of us from Team Stamp It in Hartford, but I definitely had the best tablemates EVER!!

OnStage 11

Here’s a close-up of the cards we made:

OnStage 12
Now, we didn’t only stamp! There’s also a business side, and that’s were we learned about the New Catalog–what it looks like, and what’s inside–the retiring lists, the Color Revamp, and so much more!!

One Big Meaning Lovely Thank You Cards (Part 4)!

Card 103

Hi Stampers!!

Thank you for stopping by to see the fourth, and final post in this series!! (To start from the beginning, or to find out what the heck this is all about, click here!)

Today’s card is an easier version of Monday’s card (Part 3), and except for the Pear Pizzazz Cardstock, it uses the same list of supplies!!

The main difference is there is no mat on this card, so the DSP measures 5.25 in x 4in, and I did a little something different with the ribbon! This card is a lot closer to something I would make with a full sheet of DSP, but it’s also great for when you have big scraps!!

Stampin’ Up! 2018-2019 Color Revamp!

Color Revamp (1)

Hi Stampin’ Peeps!!

YES! You read that right…the new Annual Catalog will bring with it a Color Revamp!! A Revamp is BIG news, but don’t worry–you’re gonna love it!!

So, what’s the difference between a REVAMP and a REFRESH? Well, a Revamp is a significant change to the color lines, whereas a Refresh is just a few new colors!! The new catalog is definitely going through a REVAMP–we are retiring 13 colors, but gaining 16 new ones!!

WHOOP!! Honestly, it’s time!! If we kept the same colors all the time, you guys would get bored, and so would your demos! We need fresh color to keep up with trend, and to keep things beautiful and exciting!!

Along with the REVAMP there is more exciting news!! We are also updating our ink pads!! The new style is amazing!! It’s easier to open, more compact, and they are STACKABLE!! The stackable feature does it for me–they look so clean and beautiful when stacked!! We also added a defoaming agent to the ink, so you’ll have less bubbles when using polymer stamps!! YAY!!

Note: Yesterday I shared the retiring lists with you, and you can find those here! On those lists, it looks like EVERY color is retiring, but that is not what’s happening. What’s happening is some colors are retiring, but the current colors are getting new cases, so what’s actually being “retired” is the ink in the OLD case! (*Ink that is being retired for just the case will have a special symbol next to it! Read the legend/key on the list for more info!)

Now, the moment you’ve been waiting for!!

What’s actually retiring??? These colors are going away:

Color Revamp (2) Going Away

And what is new?? These colors are new:

Color Revamp (3) New Colors

NOTE: Flirty Flamingo is retiring as an In Color, but it is returning as a member of our Brights Collection!!

Here is the full 2018-2019 color line:

Color Revamp (4) All 2018-2019 Colors

I can’t tell you how happy I am about Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather!! ❀

FYI: Notice how we took Whisper White, Very Vanilla and Basic Black out of the Neutrals collection and moved them to Basics? That move is what allowed us to retire 13 colors, but to bring back 16!!!

Doesn’t everything look so fresh, and bright, and AWESOME??

I’m in love with this new Color Collection, and I hope you are, too!! This new change is just one of the amazing things the new catalog has to offer, and I can’t wait to share it all with you!!

Happy Stampin’! πŸ™‚

New Catalog Cover & Retiring Lists!!

Annual Catalog 2018-2019

Isn’t it beautiful??!!!!

Hi Stampin’ Peeps!!

Finally, the time has come!! I get to show you the cover (the cover ONLY!) of the new Annual Catalog, but I also get to share with you the Retiring Lists for the current catalogs!!

Soooooo…don’t you just LOVE that cover? It’s awesome, but guess what?? The inside is even better!! That I can’t share with you until the middle of May, but trust me…It’s totally worth the wait!!

Now for the retiring lists!! With a new catty, there’s always a ton of stuff that’s going! Keep in mind, if a Bundle is listed as retiring, but the stamp set/dies/punch aren’t listed, then that means it will be in the next catalog, but not as a bundle!

Also, Stamp Sets are only guaranteed through May 25, but EVERYTHING ELSE is WHILE SUPPLIES LAST–INCLUDING BUNDLES!!! That means if there is something you want, then you should order as soon as possible!!

Monthly Specials:

*Use the HOSTESS CODE:Β 6WDUXHN3Β on all orders under $0-149.99 and earn FREE Stuff from me!! If your order is $150+, don’t use the HOSTESS CODE!! You’ll still get FREE stuff from me, but you’ll also get Stampin’ Rewards!!
