Hi,
Happy Spring Break, wow that was a busy week off!  Thanks for letting me enjoy it!  Back now with a few updates to share!

WEEKLY DEALS
It's Tuesday so that means NEW Weekly Deals!! Here you go, some adorable embossing folders, I have a hard time making a card without using one!!  Which is your favorite?


Other Announcements were made today with regards to a couple of other products / programs that Stampin' Up! has evaluated and deemed that they are no longer going to offer these after May 31st, 2015.

MY DIGITAL STUDIO:
My Digital Studio software, digital downloads, print products and support.
*If you have purchased the software and any downloads, please ensure that you actually download the items to your computer and do a back up!!
*If you have any projects that you are currently working on with plans to print through the SU print house, please complete those quickly!!
*Digital items will no longer be available through the Stampin' Up! store, so if there is other digital artwork (stamp sets, dsp, kits, embellishment, etc) please make sure to order (& download) these while you can.
*You may continue to use the software and downloads that you have purchased on your own, with e-cutters, etc afterward but going forward there will be no online or software support or training, videos etc.

HISPANIC MARKET:
The Spanish Celebrando Creatividad catalog and offering of translated stamp sets will be available only through the end of May.  There are other changes with this program but they impact the demonstrator side of business.

While today has several announcements please be confident that Stampin' Up! is constantly evaluating the success of its programs and product offerings to ensure that they are always bringing us the best.  Although change is sometimes frustrating and hard, it is also necessary to move forward to see what NEW offerings they can bring us.  Also please note that they do not make these decisions lightly, this is after much consideration and review.

Happy St Patrick's Day today too!!  Go stamp something GREEN!

Spring Fling, Birthday Cake

Happy Friday!!

You did it!!  You made it all week and to the end of the Spring Fling Projects too!  I hope you have enjoyed seeing what we designed and prepared for our guests.  It was a great day, the feedback we have received was all in favor of a nice assortment of projects, good mix of difficulty and what can we say, they LOVE making cards but we love to throw in a few gift packaging ideas too!!

Here ya go!!  This features the Big Day SAB stamp set and the Blendabilities markers, the Artisan kit and the Big Dot TIEF to pump up the background!



There ya have it, all the projects and a recap of everything they made!  I will have to find my pictures of everything they received in their cute Hot Pink AZ INKers goodie bag!  That picture was equally amazing too!  We try to maximize every penny back into the day and into the projects and we hope they feel special and spoiled, our way of THANKING THEM for trusting in us to deliver them an awesome day of stamping!

Have a great weekend!  Hopefully I will be back with more to share!

Spring Fling, You Made my Day!

Hi!
This card is a CASE of an idea I found on Pinterest using the Best Day Ever SAB stamp set doing the Bokeh technique of soft faded dot images floating in the background.  We used the Old Olive and Blackberry Bliss that the guests were using on yesterday's card.  This way we could also tie in the Blackberry Bliss velvet trim ribbon from the Artisan kit and the tag is punched with the NEW Ornate Tag Topper punch too!



Card idea by Sara Rayner, her original found here on Pinterest

Have a great Thursday and see ya tomorrow for the last Spring Fling project!!

Spring Fling, Lotus Blossom

Hello!

I hope you are having a great week!  We are getting ready for Spring Break already, wow, this year is flying by!  Seems like it was just January and I was at Leadership in Orlando and then bam, February and our Spring Fling event, and now shazam it's already March and we're cruising right along!  I must say I hope it slows down a bit as this is Senior Year for my lovely Miss Rachel and I would like to enjoy it a bit!!  But I am sure that's wishful thinking on my part ... dance competitions every month and then it'll be May ... ay-yai-yai!!  Okay I admit, I don't know how to spell that but y'all know what I meant right!

Back to business!  Ha!  Here's a lovely card made featuring the Lotus Blossom SAB stamp set and the Something Borrowed DSP, Sahara Sand Lace ribbon trim with a touch of the Blackberry Bliss velvet ribbon from the Artisan Kit too! Oh and the Tag Greeting is from the You Brighten My Day SAB set and the Note Tag punch which carried forward from the Holiday Mini!


The Lotus Blossom stamp is a 3-step stamp image which layers each image over the other to create the depth of the amazing flower.  Colors are Blackberry Bliss for the darkest detail image, and then it's Rich Razzleberry for the other two layers (one full strenth, and the other image blotted once before stamping) and good ol' Old Olive for the greens!

Have a nice day!

Spring Fling, Artisan Stencil

Hi and welcome back!

I will continue on with some more of the projects that they got to make!  These two cards feature the Stencil from the Artisan Kit embellishment box.  Both have Sahara Sand card bases, with a panel layer of Sahara Sand that has been embossed with the Small Polka Dots embossing folder.  They also each have a few of the soft pink rose trim and about a 1/3 of a doily.  The greeting is from the Lotus Blossom SAB stamp set, one stamped in Black ink and the other card with Sahara Sand ink.

Sponged Rose Chalk ink through the Stencil onto the white cardstock layer
We sponged onto a layer and then trimmed and mounted to a 2nd layer of white as a frame
Several of our guests just stamped on the 'frame' layer and skipped the extra step!

Stencil has the white side (other side is Sahara Sand) facing up,
layered over a piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock
Thanks for stopping in today!  Have a great day!
