Retiring Stamp Sets

The retired list is out! 
It's always sad to see my favourite stamp sets retire, but the excitement of the upcoming new Idea Book & Catalogue makes up for it!  Click here to see the list of retiring stamp sets.  They will only be available until May 31, so order soon before they're gone!

Summer Smooches and Fighting Cancer

I was reminded by one of the ladies in my Scrapbook Club last night that April is the Canadian Cancer Society's Daffodil month.  And since Stampin' Up!'s Summer Smooches promotion features the colour Daffodil Delight, the wheels started turning in my head. 

Like most of you, I have many family members and friends who have fought or are fighting cancer, so this is a cause that is close to my heart.  So for the month of April, I will donate my 20% commission from the sale of all Summer Smooches products AND anything you order in Daffodil Delight (cardstock, ink, ribbon, etc.) to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Here are the details about the Summer Smooches promotion:
Summer Smooches is a product suite that will be featured in our new Idea Book & Catalogue that comes out June 1.  We have the opportunity to purchase these brand new products for the month of April before the catalogue debuts!  The product line features designer series paper, coordinating stamp set (Bright Blossoms), Daffodil Delight seam binding ribbon, decor stencil*, fabric, fabric designer brads*, a digital kit, a purse die for the Big Shot and a digital photobook template.  Check out the flyer to see the products in person. 

*The decor stencil and fabric brads are exclusive to this offer and will not be available after April 30.

My Scrapbook Club made a layout using this product suite, and my Stamp Club ladies will be making the above card with the products as well this month.  The bright colours make me so happy!

I know you'll love this product suite, and when you purchase it, you'll be helping to support a great cause as well.  Contact me to place your order, or you can order online at  In my May newsletter, I'll announce how much will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Blessings to you,

April Stamp Club Projects

Of course, I'll be using the Summer Smooches product suite with my Stamp Clubs as well!  I love all the colours - they make me happy! :)
This card is a modified Joy Fold card using the large scallop circle die with the Big Shot and my Circle Scissors Plus circle cutter.
I've been wanting to use the maze game pieces from the Occasions Mini Catalogue for a long time, and this is my last month to use them!  I started out thinking I would make a kids' card, but then I thought adults would enjoy the maze game too (I know I spent a lot of time playing with it!).  So here is my "adult" maze game card.  I used Twitterpated designer series paper with Riding Hood Red and Basic Black accents.
My evening club will be making this bird house using the Milk Carton die and the Big Shot.
My morning Stamp Club ladies don't like 3-D projects, so they will be making this card using the Labels Framelits dies and the Big Shot.
Thanks for reading!

Blessings to you,

April Scrapbook Club Layout

I can't tell you how excited I am about Stampin' Up!'s Summer Smooches promotion.  For the month of April, we can get a stamp set, designer series paper, fabric buttons, seam binding ribbon, fabric, digital downloads and so much more in the Summer Smooches product suite that will be in the new Idea Book & Catalogue that comes out in June!
Well, of course, I had to make this month's layout using some of those gorgeous products!  I wanted to highlight the designer series paper, so I kept the background Whisper White with some Island Indigo accents.  There is a layer of Daffodil Delight seam binding under the two 12" strips of dsp as well.  The stamped images are from the Bright Blossoms stamp set, stamped in Daffodil Delight and Lucky Limeade.  I made a medallion using the Simply Scored tool with a fabric button in the center as well.
I just love how bright and cheery this product suite is!  Hopefully my scrapbook club ladies will love it too!

Blessings to you,
