Old Layout New Stamp Set

I actually made this card from a layout that I found in last years catalog and I really liked it. I love to use the catalogs for ideas. I did update the card and use the ribbon punch from the new catalog.

See, I am slacking again. I have all these great projects to share and I keep forgetting to upload them. I needed some manly cards so what is better than the motorcycle from the Summer Mini?

More Butterfly Prints

Isn't this cute? I made it from some scrap chipboard that I had. I covered the chipboard with Designer Series Paper and then I actually pulled some scratch paper off of a 4x6 scratch pad and stamped the butterfly in the corner of each page. I covered the binder clip with the reverse side of the Designer Series Paper. This would make a cute teacher gift.

In with the NEW!

This chart shows the new color family structure. It doesn't show the new "in colors" that will be in the next catalog, you won't see those for a while. But this is what the main color families will look like for the next several years.

Out with the Old!

Stampin' Up! announced today that a large list of colors in our current catalog will be retiring at the end of June! They will also be bringing back some of our old favorite "in colors" and adding some new "in colors" that will stick around for two years instead of one. I am super excited about this change because I am loving the new colors, the colors coming back, and space that will be freed up to add more embellishments and ribbons in the future!

Here's the list of retiring colors:

This means that after June 30, 2010 these colors will no longer be available so if there is any of these that you must have you need to start ordering now.

Flower Pin

I can't sew but look what I made. I used the flower fold Bigz XL die and cut out the flowers from a flat quarter of material. Shelly showed these Flower Brooches at Convention last year and I finally had the chance to make one. If you are looking for instructions, Shelli has them on her blog here:
Just click on the link for complete directions.
I will tell you though that I don't sew so, I used just a little hot glue to assemble mine.
