Retired Accessories List

  Retired_List_2012Hi Everyone! Get them before they are gone! The retired accessories and Definitely Decorative (including Décor Elements) lists are now available and won't stay around for long--these items are only available while supplies last!       

When you look at the retired accessories list, you'll note that all of our Stampin' Pads are listed. This is for two reasons: (1) Craft Stampin' Pads will now only be available in black and white; and (2) we are introducing a new Firm Foam pad in our Classic Stampin' Pads with the 2012-2013 annual catalog.

In addition, please note the following about the new catalog:

  • Only select Stampin' Write Markers will be available individually (Stampin' Write Markers in color collections will continue to be offered)
  • 12" x 12" Textured Card Stock will no longer be offered
  • 12" x 12" Smooth Card Stock will only be available in select individual colors and color collections.

Library Class - Make -n-Take a Gift Pack with Your Mother

DSCN1871Hi Everyone! Please join me at Kendallville Public Library's Craft Night with Mother and Child. Click Here to see more information at the Library's Site & to Register. Class fee $10.  This class project will allow mom and child to work on this craft together....just in time for Mother's Day! Child should be old enough to safely work with scissors and paper piercing tool - with help from mom if need be. Of course, one could register for 2 spots and both Mom and Child could take home their own set! I think the 'child' could be of any age! Fun time spent with mom.

The Decorated Composition Pad is from an earlier post and video. We will also be making a cute paper flower in vase! DSCN1874

Card Purse and Summer Smooch Card

DSCN1860Hi Everyone! Geeze I think this is the longest I went without a project post in awhile. Thanks for checking in with me. I will have a video on how to make the purse later today. But in the meanwhile, here's a written share on how to make. It uses the new Summer Smooch Designer Paper 125409 and the card is stamped with the Bright Blossoms (w125495, c 125497). The Summer Smooch paper is die cut with 125598 Labels Framelit Die - the largest die in the set. The Summer Smooches and Bright Blossoms are a sneak peak this month then won't be available again until June.

Hi!

Hi Everyone! Well to say it's been an interesting week is a little of an understatement. LOL We are doing a little work around the house that required the electrician meter to be moved. Yesterday, we had no power as the contractor and power company were of different opinions of how to procede. Generators kept the furnace and refrigerators on. Not anything else, no outlets, etc... (posting this from work!) We'll see what tonight brings...wish me luck! Happy Crafting~Dee

Baby Bottle Shower Invite - using Petite Purse Die

  DSCN1787Hi Everyone! Here's another twist on the Petite Purse Die... a Baby Bottle! Bundles of Joy stamp set has several cute congratulatory sentiments and images perfect for a baby card too!

DSCN1783The die on the left is the Petite Purse Die. I made 2 dies and trimmed off the sides with the exceptions of one to use as a hinge. See the right side bottle. Pink Peridot is used at the bottle top, Certainly Celery trimed and crimped. The bottle is embossed with Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder. This helps take out the automatic fold lines on the purse die.

Happy Crafting!~ Dee

Treasure Chest Truck using the Petite Purse Die - a Summer Smooch!

DSCN1774Hi Everyone! The Petite Purse Die 125606 is one of the Summer Smooch items that can be ordered this month! It will not be available again until June when the new catalog comes out. It states you can make a petite purse in a snap with this die and it's so true! To give you a size scale, it holds 4 Hersey's Nuggets. DSCN1782

Petitie_Purse_Die
I made a video tutorial on a spin of the die and made it a Treasure Chest Truck! So now the die can be used for a boy treat gift too. Also, I love the idea of using the Treasure Chest as a party favor or a prop to start a Scavenger hunt too! Open up the truck to open your map for the first clue :)
