Handmade Cards

Happy Mother’s Day

IMG_8146.jpg

Wishing all mother’s out there a beautiful day! This card was made by my friend (and a mother to a friend) Leigh Amburgey  as a thank you card but when I looked at it today I thought it would have made a nice mother’s day card too. Flowers and a heartfelt sentiment creates the perfect card in my book.

I hope you will forgive me for not posting for a long while, I have been very busy being a mom! First there was the benefit for Sidney’s School, Hershey Montessori, that I co-chaired. The very next day off to the Maple Festival parade where Sidney performed as a part of the Hershey Twirlers. The week after was volunteering at the school for Grandparents day. To cap it all off May 3rd was her big DOUBLE DIGIT birthday. The whole family got together to redecorate her room.

This mother is tired. So today was all about me (as it should be right?) and doing the things that made me happy. I spent the entire day in my craft room, YAY!!! Finally, there were a few moments to unpack from OnStage, serparate the retired items on my shelves, and reorganize for all of the AMAZING items coming in the new catalog. As bonus Sidney and I made the April Paper Pumpkin together… gorgeous, love the look of this kit and really looking forward making some extras. Speaking of looking forward, the May Paper Pumpkin should start mailing today, eeek! We got to preview the kit at OnStage. Oh My do I really love it- there will be refill kits with my name on it.

Just a quick reminder the retired item list has been out for a bit and some items have sold out in minutes (yes you read that right). If there is something you love grab it now.

The Retirement List is available

The 2019 Retiring List has now been posted!  Check out what won’t be carrying on from both the 2019 Occasions catalog (the smaller one with the orangish cover) and the larger 2018/19 Annual Catalog.   You can view or print the PDF files below or you can shop/browse in my Online Store to see pictures instead:

** Please note that some of the stamp sets listed as retiring are just retiring in their current Wood or Clear Mount form; they will be in the new catalogue in the Cling style.

2018/19 Annual Catalogue Retiring List

Shop or Browse in my Online Store

The Online Store option will also automatically update when things sell out. As always, all these items are while supplies last only!

Things I want to just bring to your attention that are going:

Envelope Punch Board

Big Shot – don’t panic too much!  Stampin’ Up! has an improved model coming, but are discontinuing their relationship with Sizzix immediately. There is just a transition period for now, and we will still use our existing Big Shots in class.   Unfortunately, the cutting plates sold out a few weeks ago, but I also know these are fairly widely available from other sources.

Trimmer – Same deal as above. Stampin’ Up! has had some issues with the trimmer and also the manufacturer, so they are coming out with their own model with many improvements.  There is now a transition period. In the meantime, carry on using what you have, of course.  I’d suggest getting the replacement blades now; I expect they will sell out quickly. I do have a few packs on hand for my customers.

Large Letter Dies – Sob!  We do have another font in dies coming, but if you love these, please do get them before they sell out!

The 2017/19 In Colours Cardstock, Inks, Accessories, and Ink Refills – These include Fresh Fig, Berry Burst, Powder Pink, Tranquil Tide, and Lemon Lime Twist. I expect these will sell out with the day or few days; don’t delay in getting these items if you already have the ink pads or if you just love them.
