Luck O' The Irish! Dia dhuit! (That is hello in Irish!) Even though I am Swedish and French I like to embrace the Irish holiday. As they say, everyone is Irish for one day in March! Let's cover the latest news first! As you probably know, when we have Sale-A-Bration, there are TWO releases. The second release is available March 3rd! To see the 2nd Release Sale-a-Bration brochure Click Here Both releases are good through March 31st. Purchase $50.00 and you qualify for one of the free items marked with the "Free with $50 purchase" logos. If you purchase $100.00, there is the logo for $100. Purchases can be made from the Annual Catalog and the Mini Occasions Catalog. If you need either of these catalogs and the Sale-A-Bration booklet let me know (note: my order for the 2nd release has not come in yet, so please use the link above). Our February Sunday Craftin' Gals Gathering was so much fun! We did a card camp on a smaller scale. I don't know how people handle the 15 card camps. I can barely make up 5, so that is what I stick to. My team and guests like the smaller version, so that helps ease my mind. Here are the cards I made as the samples. Credits for my CASEing... The Lily Pad was CASE'd from Angie Juda. She did it in the Subtle papers and so I just changed it up using the Lily Pad paper. Thanks Angie! The Iris - thanks to Shannon at shannonkaypaperie.com. I loved this one so much, I had to CASE it completely. Tropical Oasis Die Cut Window - Thank You Wendy Cranford for your super video on how to make this card. The Honey Bee card, I partially cased from my friend Tracie Salo when we did a swap, but I also saw a similar one from Karen Ksenzahovic that was similar. So Thanks to Tracie and Karen for the sweet honey inspiration. The Poppy card was also a CASE from my friend Mary Beth Guzzo in the same swap with Tracie and others. Just used some...
Still staying at home and stamping! Greetings from the Masked Stamper! (Pun intended) A surreal time for sure. I feel like the Masked Singer, except not quite as good of singer as most of them are. We have been watching that show for the first time this season, and find it a nice break from our usual news junkie days. Yes, we are news junkies unfortunately at times, but at least we are informed (or I hope we are). This post is just a reminder that the new Annual Catalog from Stampin' Up! is going live in June! It is filled with new things and old things - not old per say, but you know what I mean...carry overs. I find that nice so I don't feel so bad if I haven't used a stamp set from last years catalog. I still have a chance to consider it "new" and not "retired". Here is a picture of the cover... New In Colors are coming too! Yippee! The inks will be available some time in late June I believe. I will keep you all updated when they are available. The In-Color paper is available and so are the ribbons. Many of us demonstrators took advantage of a pre-order this month, and hopefully we didn't buy out everything in stock. You know us, we get anxious and want to plan for events and give aways, so possibly buy out something very quickly. Our bad... I am featuring a couple cards that I CASE'd using the Ornate Garden Suite. At first, it was a tad lacy and frilly for me, but I found that some have found the right combination to make them classy. I love vintage, flowery looks, but too much pattern and lacy elements not so much. So, I have to be picky about my cards and not get them too jumbly (is that a word? Ha). The first card is CASE'd from Akiko Sudano. The next is CASE'd from Julie Gilson... Both have inspired me to do more with this Suite so Thank You Akiko and Julie. It really is a gorgeous array of stamps, dies,...


I am all about crafting and creating unique projects using stamps, ink, paper and of course embellishments!
