Out with the old, in with the new

This weekend, I took the time to gather from my studio all the retiring items  that Stampin up! released in their retired list. I’ve challenged myself to create projects with these items before  you  start ordering from the New Stampin up! catalog at the beginning of June.  If you want me to reserve a copy of the new catalogue, simply send me an email.  It’s very dear to me to have a copy for my customers.   I’ve also already ordered products from the new catalogue and needed to make room for my new goodies.  This is one of the perks from attending on stage and all demonstrators will also be able to order in May.  We are so excited to have this opportunity to make cute projects for you before the official release!

Today, I chose the Help me grow stamp set #140764. This was the one stamp that I was most upset when I saw the list. But on the positive side, I also ordered in my pre order something exciting and similar.  Therefore, sometimes you have to let go of certain things as better things are ahead🙂  The stamp set coordinates with the Rose Garden Thinlits #140619. 

I also used the gold wink of stella glitter brush #141898 for the center of my flowers.  This item is also retiring.  But the clear wink of stella #141897 that I used on my petals is not retiring, thankfully!  It brings a glitter to your project.

The basic pearls will return but in a different format.  Therefore, you will also find these on the retired list #199247.  I added three on my card to balance my project.

My color combo consisted of pool party, very vanilla and crushed curry.  It’s a beautiful combo that you will see in the new catalogue.  By the way, demonstrators get their new catties before customers.  Another perk of being a demonstrator!  I initially joined for the discount 10 + years ago but realized there were so many other perks.  If you’d like more details, please feel free to email me.  If you join in May, you can pick items from the new catalogue for your starter kit.  That’s $165 of product for only $135.  No tax, no shipping:)

here is another of my samples using the help me grow stamp set:) 

 

Don't forget to view all the amazing products from the retiring list.  Order on my online store or email me your order.

I hope you enjoyed my help me grow cards and that you are inspired to use the retired products before they are gone for good! Happy stamping!

If you are a close acquaintance of mine, you know that I am very passionate about paper crafting.  But I am more passionate about scrapbooking.  I love creating projects to preserve my memories:  memories of my children, my stamping world, and memories with my love.   At our recent stamping event, I offered the opportunity for attendees to purchase my urban underground project life album and coordinating pages.  Below you will find sneak peeks of the album.  My full detailed album and instructions is available HERE (for those who have already purchased the class).  If you missed your opportunity at my stamping event and would like to purchase this class, email me.  I would gladly mail the products to you and give you access to my password code for additional instructions and images. I am adding a few bonus pages for you to reproduce.   Extra ideas is always fun!  I couldn’t limit my choices in photos so I kept going and created a full album.

Hey chick would you love this free stamp set

Did you get your Sale-a-bration catalogue with all the free goodies?  I'm loving the Hey,Chick stamp set.  It comes with 7 rubber stamps.  I call it this chick and her girlfriends…. It also comes with 3 greetings that are perfect for your everyday card.  I especially love this chick!  She just puts a smile on my face.   I think I'll call her Betsy.  She's the perfect card to send to a girlfriend…  You can get this stamp set for FREE!   For every $60 CAD you spend (before tax and shipping), you get a FREE Sale-A-Bration product. That means it’s the perfect time to purchase those products you’ve had your eye on while earning more products for free.  The very vanilla, early espresso and pool party was just the perfect color combo. I also added embellishments from the cool treats suite.  The tasty treats specialty designer paper and the sprinkles embellishments were perfect for the look I was going for.  Ironically the cool treats suite has vibrant colors but it also has neutrals, if you select the right combo.

Tip#1:  If you flip the hexagons dynamic textured impressions embossing folder, it creates chicken wire mesh.  I'm all about vintage and this background is the perfect accent to a card.

Tip#2:  I also stained my delicate doilie with the early espresso ink pad.  Just stamp the ink pad directly on the doily and let dry.

Some extra goodies from me:*** When you order in my online store, add hostess code:  ZC7CZ4HE.  This will give you an extra 5 samplers  cards from occasion's catalogue products created by myself, mailed directly to you…  If you join my team and purchase the starter kit:  Receive 2 PDF's from my occasion's event…

Happy New Year!

Wishing you a Happy New Year!  From the bottom of my heart, I would love to wish you health, peace, success, love and lots of stamping…  2016 had it's highs and lows and we are super excited for the new year to come.  I guess I never mentioned on my blog but the best 2016 highlight was when Chris proposed to me… So many emotions, he is such a romantic and traditional guy.  I'm very grateful and blessed for his love.  Therefore, 2017 will bring on a wedding and a name change.  Can't wait to start the prepping and to become Kim McGillis… We are planning a family trip shortly with all our children and then I will start with the wedding planning… I promise to post about it. 

We put all our holiday decorations away today.  We were super productive therefore I only had time to create a 5 min easy card… This card includes products from 3 catalogues, The holiday catalogue that is retiring this week, the new occasion catalogue that starts on January 4th and the Annual catalogue.  I will list all the products below.  The color combo of very vanilla, basic black and gold was perfect for a a New Year's card.

I wanted to highlight the new star blast edgelits dies from the occasion catalogue.  This edgelit also has a coordinating stamp set called Birthday Blast #142866.  If you would like to receive the new Occasion catalogue, please don't hesitate to email me.

The greeting comes from the stamp set It's a Celebration from the holiday catalogue.  I adore the gold sequin trim.  It's 1/4" wide and is perfect to highlight a straight line to my project.  The sequin comes from the annual catalogue and it's available in 4 colors:  bermuda bay, blushing bride, gold, silver.

Tip of the day:  Did you know that stampin up designs most designer series paper double sided and that one side is designed to be used all year long.  For instance, This Christmas Specialty designer series paper is not only used for Christmas, it's opposite side is perfect for all year round stamping projects… I love how the music notes are coordinating with my card today and I can promise that I'll be using this paper for my valentine projects as well.
