06.14.19…..Happy Friday, my stampin’ friends! The new 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog has so many wonderful bundles and suites! It makes is super easy to “grab and go” when you need to create a card or project at a moment’s notice. However, the thing I also love about so many of the Stampin’ Up products, is how well they “cross-coordinate” with one another.
That being said, I created this card using the Bloom & Grow Bundle (Bloom & Grow Stamp Set + Budding Blooms Dies). However, I also added in the following products from the Woven Threads Suite…..Woven Threads Designer Series Paper, Woven Threads Trim, and the Woven Threads Sequin Assortment. It’s definitely an unexpected combo!

UPDATE: 06.17.19…..This morning, I was excited to find out that my Bloom & Grow card (that I posted on 06/12/19) was one of the winners for this week’s Global Design Project #193 (#GDPwinner). 😃
06.12.19…..Welcome to Wednesday, everyone! And…welcome to the brand NEW 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog! It seems that each and every Stampin’ Up catalog is full of amazingly wonderful products, and this new catalog certainly doesn’t disappoint!
This week, I’m participating in the latest Global Design Project (#GDP193) Color Challenge, and I thought the NEW Bloom & Grow Bundle would be just perfect for this card. Don’t forget…..you can save 10% by ordering the Bloom & Grow Bundle (Bloom & Grow Stamp Set + Budding Blooms Dies)!

05.31.19…..Welcome to Thursday, stampers! I just love the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper from the new 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog! I also love chocolate (…a lot!!!), so I figured why not combine the Bird Ballad DSP with a sweet chocolate treat. And that my stampin’ friends, is the inspiration for these pretty little candy bar wrappers.
You may begin placing orders from the NEW 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog on June 4, 2019.
If you still have products on your wish list from the 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog, you will need to place your order no later than June 3, 2019.

05.30.19…..Happy Thursday, everyone! I still can’t believe it, but the 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog will be coming to an end in just a few days…on June 3rd! Several of my stamp sets will be retiring, so I decided to make one last card with one of the sweetest little sets in the catalog, “A Good Day“. That being said, the theme for this week’s Global Design Project (#GDP191) is Bees, Birds, & Butterflies, and I thought the little bird from the “A Good Day” stamp set would be perfect for my card.

05.24.19…..Welcome to the weekend, everyone! I have to admit that the title of this post is a bit misleading. O.K…….a lot misleading! This cool, little box was created with some of the amazing new products (including the Petals & Parcels Bundle) from the soon-to-be released 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. And that new catalog, my stampin’ friends, is not “a little something”…..but “a BIG something”!

05.23.19…..Happy Friday, stampers! The 2019 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog and the 2019 Occasions Catalog will both be expiring in less than two weeks…on June 3rd. I know…it’s hard to believe, right? There are so many fun stamps sets and accessories in these catalogs, many of which will be retiring. So…if there are any retiring products that are still on your wishlist, you’ll want to order them as soon as possible!
That being said, I’m so excited that the Piece of Cake stamp set (used to create this card), along with coordinating Cake Builder Punch, will be carried over to the upcoming 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. It just love the versatiliy of this set. Whether it’s a birthday, wedding, anniversary, or other occassion….this set has got you covered! And…with the coodinating Cake Builder Punch, it makes you job even that much easier!

05.06.2019…..Welcome to Monday, everyone! I have to admit that I had a wonderful time creating my Lovely as a Tree frame yesterday. So…..I figured why not create another framed project with the Lovely as a Tree set, but this time in an unexpected color combo. I really wanted to switch things up, so I decided to Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, and Melon Mambo. Hope y’all enjoy it!
If by chance you don’t have the Lovely as a Tree set, your last opportunity to purchase it will be June 3, 2019 (….or until supplies last). Don’t miss out!!!

05.05.2019…..Well, my stampin’ friends, it is defintely the end of an era! Yes, it’s hard to believe…..but the Lovely as a Tree stamp set is retiring at the end of May! Since it’s debut in 2001, it has been a classic Stampin’ Up set that has never gone out of style. If by chance you don’t have this set, your last opportunity to purchase it will be June 3, 2019 (….or until supplies last). Don’t miss out!!!
Because this is such a timeless stamp set, I wanted create something extra special. So…..I decided to create this framed artwork that I could use in my home all year ’round.

05.05.19…..The latest Paper Pumpkin kit (Sentimental Rose), has such a versatile stamp set, as well as beautifully designed cards, elements, and accessories. I’ve really enjoyed making several projects from this “rosy” kit!
I absolutely love the gorgeous “Distinktive” flower stamp that is included in this kit, so I thought I would combine it with some other fun Stampin’ Up products and accessories. While Stampin’ Up has sooooooo many wonderful bundles, suites, paper and accessories that are specially designed to be used together, I also truly enjoy “cross-coordinating” and mixing different styles and themes together with one another. And that, my stamping friends, is the inspiration for this card…..
