Bon Voyage & Hello Stamping Rewards
Hi Everyone,
It is the last couple of weeks to get those must have products from the 2015-2016 annual catalog that are retiring. There are so many wonderful things. One of my favorites I'm showing is the Hamburger Bigz Die. I just love this. It is perfect for so many little gifts. It is such a great feeling to see the excitement on the person's face that receives the gift. Right now, the hamburger die is on sale too!

Along with the retiring products, I too am having my own special. Be sure to check out my "Mix & Match" game where you can earn free gift certificates to spend in the new 2016-2017 Annual catalog.
Talk about double savings. Don't miss out.
Hello Stamping Rewards!

During the month of June, hostesses receive $35.00 in extra hostess benefits with a qualifying party of $350.00. This is fantastic! You, as a hostess, can earn close to $100.00 in hostess dollars. Gather some friends and host a party, have an on-line party, or get all of your new favorites from the new annual catalog. Here is a peek at some new products.
Wait to see what you can do with A Little Foxy!

Baby Bear is too Cute!

Such wonderful new Thinlits!
Swirly Bird Stamp Set

Painter's Pallet
If you don't have a demonstrator and would like a new catalog, don't hesitate to contact me. I'm happy to send one out to you. If you are wanting to earn your extra hostess rewards, I'm happy to help too.
Happy Stampin'

Creative Ways to Display your Cards
Hi Everyone, I recently went to Spokane for an education conference. I was able to catch a few antique and vintage shops. These are two items I bought to display some cards from swaps and other things in my workshop room. I just put them up today. I hope you enjoy and get some ideas on your own creative space.

Ribbon holds up my samples
the bottom has an opening to have cards sitting in.

The frames with chicken wire is getting so popular
I loved the country yellow. I'm using the small
clothes pins to attach my samples.
In Spokane and the surrounding areas, there are tons of shops. I will have to go back when they are open. Most close by 6:00, so when you are at workshops that go until 4:00, it doesn't leave much time. Here are a few of the vendor displays that really got me thinking about my crafting. Enjoy!

I wanted to buy all these frames. For some reason I'm into the trend.

A great idea for along the wall.

I thought this old door was a great way to display things.
I don't have room for anything like this, but how cool!
I hope you enjoyed some of these fun ways to display your beautiful projects. I am having fun adding some vintage things to my craft area. I'll be sure to blog more when I get my other "finds" up.
Happy Stampin',

Blogging Friends Blog Hop
Farewell Amazing Products

 It is so hard to believe that there are so many amazing products that have made the Stampin' Up! retirement list. All the blogging friends wanted to share some wonderful ideas to give their last respects to. There are so many for me to choose from. What's great is that many products are at a discounted price as well. I too have a "Mix & Match" special running through the end of May. You can get more information at my demonstrator website.

Another Thank You stamp set has been one of my favorite sets! The beautiful scripts of the different "Thank You" are great. This card I made used Real Read and Whisper White card stock. The candy dots and Essential Hardware clips are also on the Retiring List. I do know my DSP is not a current one, so no luck ordering that sorry.

Best Thoughts Hostess Set
Tip Top Taupe, Whisper White, Mint Macaron

I embossed in white and added a touch of Watermelon Wonder ink

I can never get enough of the Pearls
Best Thoughts hostess set is such a nice one to have. I have used it so much to send to family and friends back in Michigan. I'm sad to see the lace dotted ribbons go out, but there are many more beautiful ribbons and accessories coming.
