It's almost time to start ordering out of the new Stampin' Up! catalog and to make room in the Paper Palace for new stuff some of the old stuff has to go.  So on Thurs., May 29th I'll be having my retired sale.  Stamp sets, paper, ink pads, Bigz Dies, embossing folders and more.  Come anytime between 2:00 and 9:00.  
Hope to see you all then and hope I'll sell a lot of this stuff.  So that I can buy new stuff.
And you can buy new stuff on June 2.  I can hardly wait.  If you need a catalog please let me know.  Or better yet come on Thurs and pick one up.

Here's a graduation card that we did at card class last month.  I know, I'm really behind and some might think that it's a little late to be showing graduation cards but I have at least three open house's that aren't until the middle of June.  Of course with the winter that we had a lot of the schools around here aren't getting out until the middle of June. 
But if you want this stamp set you'll have to order it by next Friday because that's when it will retire.  So if you want this one let me know.

What I've been doing.

It seems like forever since I've posted but I have a good reason.  I've been helping Beth with decorations for Ashley Trading Days.  Friday night was the Queens pageant and we did a lot of rosettes for decorations.  Here's a couple of them.  The biggest ones were made of poster board.

The decorations will stay up until after Trading Days so we will get a lot of use out of them.  But that's what I've been doing.  Hopefully now I'll get some stamping done.  I want to do a Project Life workshop and there's the retirement stuff to get ready for a sale. To much work and not enough time.

Here's a blossom stamp out of the new catalog called Blended Bloom.  And I colored it with the Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities pens.  This isn't the best job but I'm getting better and it's so much fun.  I have to admit that this color is the only color of pens that I got but now I can hardly wait to get more colors to play with.  Both the stamp set and the pens are in the new catalog so you'll have to wait until June 1st before you can order them.  And if you need a new catalog just let me know.  I have them already and they're just waiting to go home with you.

Here's another card that we did at the last card class.  It's pretty simple but sometimes that what we want.  Can you tell that the birds are punched out of glitter paper.  I'm so glad that there will be glitter paper in the new catalog.  Speaking of which, I have some of the new catalogs.  If you want one please let me know and I'll see that you get one.  Lots of new stuff in there and some old favorites.  Lovely as a Tree has been in the catalog ever since I started and it's still there. 
Well, I'm exhausted and so I think I'll head to bed.  Beth and I shopped all day and I think I'm getting to old for this.  Or maybe to out of shape.  Something.

Wow, I can't believe it's been over a week since I posted here.  There's just to much going on.  One of the things going on is the new catalog.  Last Monday was the new catalog launch.  It's was a red carpet premier.  We went to Walled Lake to a theater and watched the live launch from Long Beach California.  Then we all got a copy of the new catalog and a free stamp set.  And can you believe it, I haven't even had time to play with the new set.  I did get it mounted and then spent an hour trying to fit it back into the box.  So, a word of advice, if you get a set that fills the box up you might want to take a picture of the blocks before you ever take them out of the box.  Thank goodness someone else did and posted the picture so now I have the stamps back in the box.  With a picture of how they fit.
And since I went clear to Detroit I decided to stay over night and go to Ikea the next day.  Spent less than $100.00 so that was a good day. 
Back to stamping.  Here's another card from last weeks card class.  I love this set because it screams for coloring.  I know that a lot of people don't like to color but I love it and I think it really makes this card.  Alas, this stamp set is out of the Occasions catalog and it won't be carried over to the new catalog.  So if you want it you'd better order it before the end of the month. 
I showed you a Christmas card last Sat. and then how to jazz it up.  The only way I can think of to jazz this card up is maybe using pearls on the ribbon and another layer of glitter paper.  But I really like it just like it is.  Now, back to work.  Lots to do.  Hope to update this blog a little oftener.
