Happy Monday,
I just returned from an awesome retreat with Tamra Davis and the Ta Da team.  Tamra went to OnStage and had the new In colors and limited products she was able to preorder.  I am in love with the new in colors! and working on a few items I made at the retreat.  I will be posting them in the next few days so stay tuned.  

It's the time of year when we say goodbye to some old favorites and are excited to see what is new.  I promise you won't be disappointed with the new Annual Catalog, it is one of the best I have seen in years! 

Retiring items will be carried as supplies last ( Stamps will continue to be manufactured until May 22).   Make sure to order your favorites before they are gone. 

have a great day and thanks for visiting.

NC Stampin' Up! Demos April Blog Hop

Welcome to the NC Demos April Blog hop!


I have an awesome card for you today.  This tower card  is cased from Linda Bauwin. It stands but also folds flat for mailing.  I used my favorite paper in the Occasions Catalog, Birthday Bouquet,  which is retiring May 31st.  The items on the retirement list are as supplies last so if you love the retiring In Colors or Designer Series Paper from the current Annual Catalog or the Occasions Catalog consider placing an order to insure you don't miss out.  

Here is what you will need:
Blushing Bride cardstock measuring 5 1/2" x 8 1/2 "scored at 2,4,6,8 on the landscape side.  
4 pieces of Mossy Meadow cardstock measuring 1 3/4 x 5 1/4
3 pieces of Birthday Boutique Paper cut 1 1/2 x 5
1 piece of Whisper White cardstock cut 1 1/2 x 5

  1. Fold and burnish your Blushing Bride cardstock on the score lines and using your choice of adhesive, I like the tear tape for this type of project,  attach the ends together.  
  2. Attach Mossy Meadow panels to all four sides
  3. Adhere the DSP to 3 sides and the  Whisper White cardstock panel to the fourth side.  
  4. I stamped a greeting on the white panel and and on a piece of Whisper White cardstock punched out with the 2" circle punch.  
  5. Punch a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock with your 2 3/8 scallop circle punch and using your adhesive attach the white circle to the scalloped circle. 
  6. Using dimensionals place your circle so that half is hanging over the edge when folded.  
  7. To embellish I punched 5 flowers with the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and placed a small pearl in the center of each flower.  
  8. Attach your flowers with glue dots to the circle and the back.  I used 3 on the circle and 2 on the back panel.

An easy, fun card your Mother will love.  

Spoiler alert:  I used a sentiment from the In the Meadow stamp for part my greeting on the circle however, I used retired Mother's Day greetings as I didn't have a current one small enough.

Paper Pumpkin Dec 2015 One Great Year

Do you need a last minute Christmas present or birthday gift for a crafty friend?  
A great way to start 2016 is with this great My Paper Pumpkin kit!
Everything you need to create these cute calendars is in your little orange box.  How great is that?  Since Stampin' Up! retired the Stampin' Spots I have been able to acquire a set of the ones I use most frequently through MPP kits.  That makes subscribing a double bonus; stamp sets each month and Stampin' Spots in addition to a cool project. Having a busy month, you have the option of skipping as often as you like. Give it a try, I'm sure you will like it.  You can subscribe here .

Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
As always, thank you for your support
