Sorry for Everything

Today’s project features the retiring Sorry for Everything stamp set – a great one for your stash!

The background panel comes from the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper. I stamped “I’m so very” and “for your loss.” in Garden Green onto Mint Macaron and then cut them out with the Stitched Rectangles Dies. To shorten each of the rectangles, I just shifted the die from right to left and ran them through my die cutting machine again. Voila! Custom-size rectangles at your service!

I punched a pair of leaves from the retiring Leaf punch and placed them behind the “Sorry” sentiment, which was cut using my Brother CM350E ScanNCut2 and popped up on dimensionals. A Linen Thread bow finishes off the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful & blessed day!

PROJECT MEASUREMENTS:

  • Old Olive card base – 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored and folded in half at 5-1/2″
  • Garden Green layer – 3-3/4″ x 5″
  • Garden Lane DSP layer – 3-5/8″ x 4-7/8″

Meet the New In Colors!

Today’s post is a quick share of the new 2020-2022 In Colors! Introducing…

Yesterday was a big day for demonstrators! As one of the many perks of being a demonstrator, we were able to pre-order items from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog and the In Color products were the first items I added to my order!

Customers will be able to purchase the New In Color products starting June 3! If you can’t wait until then, you can add pre-order products to a Starter Kit order! How awesome is that?!? Here’s a quick screenshot to show you where you can find the pre-order items on a Starter Kit order:

Aren’t these In Colors beautiful??!? Right now, my favorite is Misty Moonlight, but I know once I have these colors in my hot little hands I might change my mind! Which one is your favorite? Let me know in the comments!

Farewell to Pressed Petals

Today’s project is a quick & easy card featuring products from the retiring Pressed Petals suite!

I needed to create a whole bunch of thank you cards and I love how beautiful the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper is! The added bonus is that it comes with 24 sheets of 12″ x 12″ paper – great for multiples! I had fun mixing and matching the Designer Series Paper with different cardstock base colors.

One of my other favorite things about the Pressed Petals suite is the way these two oval dies layer together! The stitching and flower detail on the Rococo Rose piece is beautiful and since our Ovals punches retired, this oval is one of my go to ovals – a great size for so many sentiments!

QUICK TIP: To adhere the strip of lace, I just added a tiny piece of Tear & Tape that would be hidden behind the sentiment piece. Then I stuck the lace to it before adding the sentiment piece.

I hope you had a great weekend! Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful & blessed day!

PROJECT MEASUREMENTS:

  • Night of Navy card base – 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored and folded in half at 5-1/2″
  • Mossy Meadow layer – 3-3/4″ x 5″

Making a Difference – Product Giveback

Stampin’ Up! is offering a product giveback opportunity to support organizations that are helping COVID-19 frontline responders and communities vulnerable to this pandemic. I am thrilled to share this opportunity with you! We can purchase the Share Sunshine PDF Download for only $12 and Stampin’ Up! will donate 100% of the proceeds to COVID-19 efforts – AMAZING!

The Share Sunshine PDF Download is a digital stamp set that’s packed with both lighthearted and heartfelt sentiments and imagery relevant to the unique COVID-19 and social distancing situation we’re currently experiencing – including many ideas that came from demonstrators and customers! You can use the download in your cardmaking and papercrafting projects. Simply print the imagery on cardstock and cut it out using our Paper Trimmer, punches, or dies. Since we are physically distanced from each other, now is a perfect time to share sunshine with our friends and family by sending cards!

I personally purchased it yesterday and was filled with emotion reading all the sentiments available! There are 15 pages of sentiments and imagery in both color and black & white – many of which will continue to be relevant beyond the global pandemic we’re experiencing. Once you purchase & download the PDF, you can print and use it personally as many times as you would like!

Here are some thoughts to consider:

  • Use the lighthearted and heartfelt sentiments to brighten someone’s day – friends, family, neighbors, and even strangers!
  • You can start crafting with the PDF download right away – with no shipping costs or delays!
  • Share your projects on social media with the hashtag #sharesunshine

Share Sunshine PDF Download

If you’d like to see Sara Douglass, Stampin’ Up!’s CEO, share the PDF, check out her Facebook Live video here. Sara has a goal to raise over $1M – WE CAN DO THIS! Please join me?

Last-Chance Products!

It’s that time of year where we say goodbye to some amazing products to make room for the new! Today’s post will be dedicated to everything you need to know about the Last-Chance Products! I’ve spent some time with the retiring lists and hope to make all the information easier for you to understand!

Important Reminders:

  • All Last-Chance Products are available until June 2 or WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!
  • Retiring stamp sets are guaranteed to be available through May 22, 2020
  • Host sets can only be purchased with Stampin’ Rewards
  • Stampin’ Blends are NOT retiring! They are being reconfigured and will no longer be available as single markers once the new Annual Catalog launches on June 3 (the combo packs will have new item numbers). You will see both the single markers and the combo packs on the Last-Chance list, but rest-assured these aren’t going anywhere – YAY!
  • Items currently bundled where items in bundle are not retiring won’t be available at a 10% discount after June 2 (so get them discounted while you can), with the exception of the following current bundles that WILL carry over with the discounted bundled price:
    • Mountain Air
    • Painted Poppies
    • Peaceful Moments
    • Stitched So Sweetly

Last-Chance Products List:

The following list is my edited version of the last-chance lists provided by Stampin’ Up! I have combined both lists into one and have cleaned up the list to try to reduce confusion. For example, I removed the following from the list:

  • French products
  • Bundles where items in bundle are not retiring
  • Items being reconfigured (ex: Stampin’ Blends)

I hope this helps with your review of the list! It is in both Excel format with column filtering so you can sort/filter any way you like, and PDF format and is formatted to print! Just click the following buttons to download it!
