Time to Retire

 Stampin' Up has posted the items that will be retiring from the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog.  All retiring Stamp Sets will be available through May 31st.  The retiring accessories and Decor Elements are available "while supplies last" through May 31.

When you look at the retired accessories list, you will notice that all of our Stampin' Pads are listed.  This is because we are introducing a new Firm Foam Pad in our Classic Stampin' Pads beginning with the 2012-2013 annual catalog.  The Firm Foam pads offer better ink coverage and, in turn, better stamped images.

In addition, please note the following about the new catalog:

Only select Stampin' Write Markers will be available individually.  (The markers will continue to be offered in color collections.)

12x12 Textured Card Stock will no longer be  offered.

12x12 Smooth Card Stock will only be available in select individual colors, and in color collections.

Tea Time

This is one of the 100+ place cards I made for the adults who attended today's Girl Scout tea and fashion show.  It is just a 3x5 piece of Designer Series Paper folded in half, with coordinating card stock trim and handles.

This is one of the 100+ place cards I made for the girls at today's tea.  They are actually little purses that open up.  They are made using a 6x6 piece of DSP and coordinating card stock.  They are really easy to make and I think they turned out cute.

This photo shows the inside of the purse, which was filled with coupons and a patch for each of the Girls Scouts in attendance.

My club members made these purses at this month's club meetings.  A gift card fits inside perfectly!  If you would like to learn how to make these and other fun projects, contact me now at
