Stampin' Up!'s Retiring List, My most CASEd card from recent classes and Emma

U
  The Retiring List came out today from Stampin' Up! The List is on my website, under Shop Now stamps sets as well as accessories.   Some of the accessories are while supplies last, so don't delay, order them today.  Use Hostess Code 67RXUS7V.  

  The new catalog is available for demonstrators to see online and those attending ONSTAGE last week received theirs, however I have not checked it out yet....soon.   We will be able to order them soon and I will be passing some out in Maryland and when I return home to Florida.   Want one?  Just contact me for yours.

How many Stamp Sets do I have that are retiring?????  Email, fb or text me with your guess - The sets are all the current stamp sets in the Annual Catalog, Occasions Catalog and also includes Hostess sets in both of these catalogs.   The guess closest to the total without going over - will win a few items from me along with their choice of retiring stamp set that I have that I will not be keeping.  I do keep a few each year and will let the winner know which ones are not up for grabs.  Prizes for 2nd and 3rd place will be awarded too.

While in Maryland, I will be holding a Class -  May 1st, 1pm - Bellisimo's- Klees Mill and Liberty Roads 

   Make 6 cards, 2 of 3 different kinds of Folds cards, with envelopes.  Why 2, one to keep to copy again at a later tiem and one to send to someone now.  You will also Make 1 CUTE Gift item (not candy).  Cost is $18 or free with a $25 order the day of the class.  

   Florida friends, I will be holding the same class later in May.  

Here is my most popular card from my recent classes..it was cased from a card I received from another demonstrator 



It has been recreated you most of my class attendees.  Every couple of days someone tells me they made another one....

Here is Emma, she is 6 months old, I can't believe how fast she is growing and she got her first tooth today.

Stampin' Up! Weekly Deals, RetiringLists and an inspiration

tHe Weekly Deals will end on April 18th, a new program will start up soon after, but until then there are lots of weekly deals

April 18th is the date for the Retiring List to come out.    The In Colors from 2014-2016 will retire....in everything, card stock, ink, ink refills, markers, ribbons, designer series paper, embellishments!   So if your favorite color is Lost Lagoon, like me, I bought my car in that color, you better not wait til April 18Th to order it.   The In Color items are the first to go and they go fast!!!!


How many stamp sets will I have retiring?   Comment below with your guess, I will give the winner their choice from my retiring sets that I m not keeping.   i do keep some stamp sets for a few years, until I need to make room and decide which ones, I really don't use anymore.   I have some that retired 10 years ago, but I still use them.....Do you have some oldies but goodies?  Next week I will share a few photos of some of my favorite retired sets.

I have had 2 classes recently, one in Florida and One in Maryland.   Here are 2 of the cards we did, the first card I copied from another demonstrator who sent me and the 2nd card i copied from a demo's blog, Elaine's Creations 




There are lots of places for inspiration, enjoy and be creative
