Hi Everyone,

Well it was a very productive day out in the yard. My husband and I managed to finish making 2 more raised beds and cleaning out the other ones to get ready to get some plants in the ground. I also emptied my pots on the deck so I can try some new "grow tubs" that I hope will work better than pots. Check out my boxes all ready to go. Special thanks to my nephew. He came over and helped me weed the 3 beds I already have. My sugar snap peas will be very happy to get planted.



On another note, I can't believe how many sets I have that are being retired by Stampin' UP! Look at all of them. I'm having a "Drown in my own Tears" Stamp-a-Stack on Saturday, May 9th to say goodbye to them all. The projects will all feature things being discontinued. If you'd like to attend, simply RSVP at www.maryblocher.stampinup.net. Can't come because you aren't local? I'm happy to make you a set of 10 cards and mail them to you. Simply contact me a…

Hi Everyone,


Well it's here! The retired list for Stampin' Up! products has been published. You can see it here or go to www.maryblocher.stampinup.net. There are percentage sales on most of the products retiring. They go up to 50% off.


Stampin' Up! just released an update about high demands of things, so don't miss out. Here is the bulletin.


Please Note:

Included in retiring products this year are personalized name stamps. These will not be available to order after June 2.
We experienced a high demand on our 2013-2015 In Colors during Sale-A-Bration and our Free Shipping promotion, which caused items to go on backorder. A shipment will arrive with enough inventory to account for backorders and additional sales for the Retired List. However, these are while supplies last, so once we have sold through additional inventory in these colors, we will shut off the items for ordering. These In Color items include
130136: 2013-2015 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack…

Hi Everyone,

A busy weekend is upon us with Dance Arts Theatre's production of a compilation of short musicals. "Babes in Toyland" is the main show. My daughter, Sam is a fairy, tree, and a rooster. She has been dancing for close to 11 years. The girls have a "Secret Pal" during the spring production. Sam decided to make chipboard clipboards for a couple of the dancers. I wanted to share them with you today.






How great are these. Sam did a fantastic job picking out the designer papers and colors she knew that girls would like. One is based on Night of Navy and the other is Old Olive. Both papers have been retired, but what a great use of them. I also had Sam used Blendability markers to color rhinestones for the Old Olive board. I'm sad that Stampin' Up! can't sell these anymore due to the poor manufacturing, but I'm sure they will return in the future.

Hi Everyone,

It's stamping class day. I have fun projects ready with the Hello You Thinlit Dies. You don't have to buy the bundle, but it is a nice savings that way. I hope you like the projects too.






A Chance for a discount and free Sale-a-Bration Items
There is a wonderful special going on due to problems with shipping of the Butterflies Thinlits. Check this out.

Like you, we sincerely hoped that the Butterflies Thinlits Dies would arrive in time for Sale-A-Bration, and when that didn't happen, again like you, we hoped they would be here in time for our Free Shipping promotion. Unfortunately, that is not going to be the case.
Originally they were scheduled to arrive by April 8; we then received notification from our supplier that although the ship had reached the west coast port, the container containing the Thinlits was still on the ship. We have since received verification from a third party that the vessel is still in the port--and though it docked on Friday, April 3, …

Hi Everyone,

What a blustery, wet, and cold Friday. My daughter and I spent the day crafting. I was prepping for my Tuesday night class, and my daughter, Samantha, was creating a chipboard clipboard. I wanted to share it with you. She did so great.


 Stampin' Up no longer sells the chipboards, but they are easy enough to find at a craft store. This board is roughly 4" X 9" board. Samantha used Patio Party DSP (retired) and Blushing Bride CS. The flower and ballerina are stickers. She also added Rhinestones and a Ultrasmooth White satin ribbon with 3/4" Blushing Bride Cheveron Ribbon. This was so much fun for her to make. Samantha plans on taking it with her to a summer dance lab as a decoration in the dorm room she will stay at. Happy Stampin' Mary Blocher www.maryblocher.stampinup.net

Hi Everyone,

Another fun day on spring break. Doing a bit of cleaning and then playing. I wanted to share a few card ideas with all of you. I did my Easter card using the Happy Easter Bunny. It came out so cute. I used the Calipso Coral Embossing powder and coordinating colors to make it. I am in love with my oval framelits. They make things so easy. Pistachio Pudding cardstock is cut at 4x51/4" and run through the Big Shot using the Spring Flowers embossing folder. Can you notice the  Dazzling Details on the bunny's belly and tail? The Beach House Washi Tape is a perfect accent.


 I have the cutest cards to share with you all. My daughter, Samantha, loves the Minions. She created one a while back and decided to make another one yesterday. She couldn't find the circle punch she needed for the eyes, so she used the heart punch. I snapped a picture because I think they are so cute! I hope you do too. Everything is free handed with exception of the eyes, mouth, and pockets. …
