OK, want to see some past kits.????   Here are cards my friend, Phyllis and I made last week from one of her Paper Pumpkin Kits.    Since she wanted all Thank You cards, and wanted them flat for easy mailing and not a true shaker card....We used the word thinlits dies for all Thank You on the front of the card and we didn't use any of the adhesive for the shaker part (long strips of dimensionals)....and there were words of hello and Happy Birthday that were left over too.   Not to mention the stamps (which I love love love) and the ink spot.   All this for $19.95 !!!

Ok, here's the cards.

OH, and there are envelopes included too.   The shaker sequins do move around, just not as freely as true shaker cards do.

Stampin' with some kits.....

The other day, my friend Phyllis and I did some stampin' with someone her kits she has.....   The first kit we worked on was the  Hooray it's your day kit.   There are 20 cards in the kit, 4 different bases, 5 of each design.   We made 4 of one of the designs and had one card  base left over.   The card base is actually a gift card holder, we made two of those and the other two we cut the front off and put that onto a card stock base.    The base is just like the SAB DSP where you spritz (the kit comes with 2 spritzers) or you can sponge ink on, that is what we did.

Kits are great, they come with everything.   Most kits you need to add your own stamps, some stamps coordinate with a each kit, while others, like Paper Pumpkin, come with stamps and a ink spot".  Kits and Paper pumpkin typically come with. Card bases, sometimes DSP for layering, embellishments, sometimes dimensionally or glue dots and of course if the kit is a card kit, envelopes are included.

What do you think? Like these, well this kit is still available from the Occasions catalog page 16 and there is a coordinating stamp set, Hooray it's your day stamp set, on that page too.   The first person to order the kit from me can get that stamp set for $13 and that includes shipping to you and no tax. Savings of $3.   Must order on or before May 31st.

Tomorrow, I'll share some Paper Pumpkin kits in. The main'

GOIN' GOIN' GONE! a little late.

This post is about all the Retiring stamps and accessories.   I started this post on April 21st and could never get the list to go on here that day or since.  

To see the list your can go to my website. and the up to date list is there with any items marked with an x that are no longer available, as well as the Clearance Rack and the Weekly Deals.   The deals are awesome as well as some discounts on the retiring accessories.   Check them out.

Here are some cards I have been working on lately....not many I admit, too much travelling back and forth to Maryland.  

This first card uses Sheltering Tree - yep carrying this one over to the New Catalog.....This is one of the cards we made at the Autism Fundraiser last month.

 This card (which I can't seem to turn around, even though I took the picture just like all the others!!!!

It is using the sent, Blooming with kindness and it is being retired :{ but I think it is going to stay on my shelves for a little while longer.   I needed to make some cards that were simple stamping, no layers...I saw this somewhere on the internet and copied it.   Then I made a bunch more with lots of colors and greetings.   They all turned out great and so quick.

Stay tuned.........

Stampin' Up! Catalog New catalog coming soon!

It's that I me of year !   The new catalog will be here the end of the month and everyone will be able to order from it on June 1st!!!!

Being a stampin' Up!demo has a bunch of perks and one of them is seeing it first!  Demonstrators around the world were able to view the new catalog online yesterday.   There are so many new things that I can't wait to get and next week I will get a chance to order a few items.    Can I just tell you, I love the new in colors.....OK that's all I ca reveal for now.   Stay tuned.....

Over on my Facebook pages, I'm running a little contest...

Guess how many stamp sets I have that are retiring.   The person who guesses the closest without going over will get to choose a stamp set of their choice from those I am not keeping...and I am not keeping many.....  I might throw in some other retiring items to choose from for the winner.   But the guess is for stamp sets only.
 Place your guess here or on my Facebook page or group,  Stamp with  Stampergirl or Stampin' with Stampergirl .

Here is a little inspiration using the Mother's Day stamp set from the Occasions Catalog..

Don't forget to place your guess for how many stamp sets I have retiring at the end of this post or over on my facebook pages.
