My Online Stamp Class is in full swing!
I would love to have you join me!

WOO HOO--it's May and that means the new catalog is being released.
Get excited for June......that is when the new catalog starts and we will be using a brand new set for our club!!!!  I can't wait! 

Please place your order, on-line at:

You need to enter this code: XDNZJMEB
When ordering, it will ask if you have a "Hostess Code," that is where you enter it. It is on the checkout page on the bottom left hand side of the screen.

Order must be placed by midnight, MAY 10th   

HELLO LOVELY (pg 22 Annual Catalog)
  • (Wood):  130240, $32.95 
  • (Clear):  130243, $24.95  
NOTE:  if you'd rather purchase other products, your subtotal must be at least $24.95 this month.     

This month I have used several punches on the cards.  These are all pretty "standard punches" that I think most of you have.  If you don't, you could actually "cut out" this images with a scissors.  If you don't have the punches, and would like to add them to your order here is a list of all the punches used this month:
  • 1/2 Square
  • Postage Stamp (this one will be pre-punched for you)
  • Decorative Label
  • 1" Circle
  • Extra Large Oval
This month we are also focusing on the 2013-2015 In-Colors.  Again, I know that most of you have these colors already, but if you don't, you have a couple of options.  You could use other colors you have that match/coordinate or, if you like them, this is the month to get them!  If you have not purchased any of these pads yet, and want them, the best deal is the Cardstock & Pad kit that includes the 5 colors and 20 sheets of cardstock for $29.95 (and then a $8.99 rebate)  The colors are:
  • Strawberry Slush
  • Baked Brown Sugar
  • Coastal Cabana
  • Pistachio Pudding
  • Crisp Cantaloupe  
All pre-cut cardstock to make 6 different cards
All Pre-embossed using Stampin' Up! Embossing Folders
A PDF of instructions
A YouTube Video for each card

Envelope liners are not included in the kit, however I wanted to show you how cute it looks!  If you don't have the Envelope Liner Framelits--add to your wish list!  I line every envelope I send out.  I think it truly completes the look! 
Here's the cards for this month:


  You asked for got it.....
As a class member, you can purchase additional kits
for just $10 (not bad for 6 cards & envelopes!)

To Order, you will paypal the $10 to me using

Moving is hard

Have you ever moved?  Long distance?  It's hard!  So many things are different in another state and city than what I am used to!

Things like Internet providers, trash pickup, city utilities, etc.

I felt like I spent a week working on all that!

And this week I have been stamping and planning my projects for April!  And that is something I am comfortable with!

Moving to another state is not something I am comfortable with!  But I have to admit I am excited about my new adventure of my move, I am just ready for it to be behind me!

My husband and I have raised kids for 32 years!  We will have a chance to reconnect and explore new things in Arizona!

I just hate the process and the packing!

Have you seen my stamp studio?!!!!  That is going to be the bulk of what gets moved!  LOL!  This is what it looks like after I have been being Creative!

I have searched on Pinterest for tips on moving and the best one I found is to use Colored Duct Tape on the boxes for each room!  I LOVE THAT!!!  So I bought some pretty ones! 

I think the one for my Stamp Studio will be the one with the paint splatters!
Purple for the kitchen
Pink for my bathroom
Turquoise for ????
Checkerboard for the garage!

I have also been spending time with my grandkids and kids.  Stealing precious time now before I move away from them.

Wish me luck as I go thru the next month!
