Happy Friday!

I'm so happy it's Friday for many reasons today!! First the new catalogue starts today, and I can't wait to place my first order later today! Plus you can still order from the Current catalogue along with the Spring Catalogue till Monday June 3!! How fun is that!!

Just to let you know that you won't be able to place an order online from midnight to noon MDT ( which is about 2pm our time) while Stampin' Up! transition the system to the new 2013-2014 annual catalogue.

A big thank you to all the ladies that came out last night to my Retired Stamp a Stack. We had a great time making 12 cards using a variety of products that will be leaving us on Monday June 3. My card today has a little old and new on it!! This was one of the cards that we made last night.

Paper Pumpkin-May Projects


Each month I look forward to my little Paper Pumpkin kit in the mail. I can't wait to open it to see what fun products are in there. This month was a mini scrapbook album! It's the right size to carry in your purse to show off your family!!

While I was stampin with my friend Mary Beth, we decided to work on our kits together and this is what we came up with for one of the pages. I will fit my pictures to fit in the frames!

By the Tide....


I had so much fun visiting my friend Mary Beth on Saturday. We had fun stamping the afternoon away. The best thing about stampin with friends is that you can share product that you don't have. It's a great way to try out new product to see if you really like it.

One of the sets I was excited to use was the By the Tide stamp set. I have seen many fabulous projects with this set and I couldn't wait to give it a try!! My card today was a total CASE from a card that Mary Beth made!

Happy Monday!!

I hope you have had a great weekend! Ours was a fun one filled with Relay for Life which we are so proud of Emily as she was outside all night on Friday in that FREEZING Cold weather, visiting friends, stamping, and I'm excited to say that the sub floor in the basement is finish! Yeah, we move on to the next phrase of the basement which is finishing the drywall on the walls. We are starting to get closer to the finish project!!

Exciting News....

For the first time this upcoming weekend (May 31 to June 3) you will be able to order from the Current Catalogue (2012), Spring Catalogue, and the New 2013 Catalogue! Stampin' Up! has decided to start the new Catalogue a day early and extend the other two till June 3.

I want to share a few things with you that I noticed that are not carrying over into the new book from the Spring Catalogue.

- Cloudy Day Impression Folder
- Soda Pop Tabs
- Pinwheel Die,
- There are no bundles in the new book, so if you have been looking at Secret Garden, Hearts a Flutter,   All Dressed Up or Oh Hello now is the time to get them!
- OH Whaley Clearlit Die
- Silver Buttons (love these)
- Tea for Two Fabric
- Designer Build a Brads
- The Packs of Coredination Card Stock in Pool Party, Real Red and Primrose Petal

You will have till June 3 to purchase any of these amazing product from the Spring Catalogue, or any products that are retiring from the Current Catalogue!!

I thought it would be fun to share this fun card with you! It uses many products that will be leaving us after June 3 like the Cloudy Day Impression Folder, the Pinwheel Die and Designer Series Paper Packs.
