New In Colors!

Hello everyone! Today, I want to showcase our upcoming In Colors. These are four of the five and they will be available from June 1 2018 to May 31 2020! And, guess what? I love ALL of them!! I don't say that every year, but this year, I truly LOVE them! 

These cards were made for my downline swap this month. My team does a swap each month and this month's theme was "Spring." Now, I can't claim the apron as my original idea.  Susan Campfield  made these little aprons to match out new logo. I decided to recreate these as cards to showcase the new In Colors. (I excluded Grapefruit Grove because it didn't really go with the others.)

I used the retiring Lovely Friends stamp set to create the aprons and then Apron of Love for the sentiment. 

PS- I was trying new settings my phone to take these pictures and... well, they are less than stellar and I've already given them all away so I can re photograph them!

Anyhow, these colors will be available June 1st. If you are a bight color fan, you will LOVE these!! 
Remember, our 2016-2018 In Colors retire at the end of May! Make sure you've gotten all of those before they are gone!

Facebook Friday: Watercolor WIngs

Hello everybody! It's time for Facebook Friday!
This week I am showcasing one of my all time favorites- Watercolor Wings! It was VERY popular when it first came out. The framelits were actually on of the first things that ever went on significant backorder for Stampin' up. I remember it being such a huge seller!

First up is a card with a very special surprise inside!

Waterfront- Stamp Club To Go Card

Hey everybody! Today is a very quick post! I want to share this month's Stamp Club To Go card! I used the very popular Waterfront set to create a card that could be, well, for anyone! 

The Waterfront stamp set allows you to create different picturesque scenes by layering different stamps together. It's quite addicting actually because the possibilities are endless! It pairs nicely with the Seaside Textures Embossing Folder. 

If you aren't familiar with my Stamp Club To Go, you can find all the details here. Basically, I make three different projects for the members in my clubs in turn for their monthly order. I mail all of them out after I receive their order. In their six month membership, they also receive "Stampin' Rewards" one of th months. (Thats FREE stuff of their choice! The most popular benefit is the high coveted spiral bound catalogs they receive in May. And, my custom coils arrived yesterday!! I'm ready to start binding them once they arrive in early May. If you'd like to join my Stamp Club To Go program, now is a great time! Check out my details page and send me an email. New clubs start in May!

Petal Palette Gift Tags

Hello everyone! I have a quick post today- I want to share some tags I made recently with the Petal Palette Bundle. 
These cuties were the little gift I put in al my Petals Palette Class to Go. I try to always include a little something in my class kits using the stamp set featured in the class. This one was so easy to do! I used a couple of circles and then the stamps from the set. The little flower and label were cut using Framelits from the Petals and More Thinlits which coordinate with the stamp set. 

The cookies are from Pepperidge Farm (found at Target.) I put the tags on them and sent them on their way. This time of the year, I have to find treats that won't melt- and that can be difficult! Bit, hopefully the cookies arrived safe and sound. 

My next class to go will have a treat as well! You can see it below:

Sweet Stampede Blog Hop: Retiring In Colors

Hello everyone and welcome to this month's Sweet Stampede Blog Hop! My wonderful team is once again coming together to provide you with lots of inspiration! This month's theme is the Retiring In Colors: Peekaboo Peach, Dapper Denim, Sweet Sugarplum, Emerald Envy and Flirty Flamingo! You can see all of our In Color products here. Remember, these five colors are on a "while supplies last" basis! 

I chose to focus on Peekaboo Peach because it's my favorite retiring color (Flirty Flamingo is actually coming back as a Core Color, so that doesn't count!) 

Peekaboo Peach is a great orange- it's soft and light and not over powering. I'm not typically an orange person, but this one is so easy to use! I also choose to use the Watercolor Wings stamp set, which sadly, is also retiring! 

If you like Watercolor Wings, make sure to join me for Facebook Friday this week- I've got three more projects planned using this amazing set! 

 You can join my Facebook Group here. 

Ok, it's time to hop along to other wonderful ladies in the hop! Next up is Anne Marie!
