Colors, Colors, Colors – All the Details Because It’s Almost Time!!

What’ a color revamp? Well, it’s a complete “revamp” of Stampin’ Up! colors to freshen them up and add new gorgeous-ness! All of this takes place on June 1st. That’s only a week away! It also means that some colors are going away, and won’t be available after May 31st. I want to be sure you know what’s happening so that you can get some of the retiring colors before they’re gone, so here’s the scoop:

If you love some of the retiring colors like I do, you’ll want to stock up while you can! I love the retiring Sweet Sugarplum and got a package of it to have on hand 🙂 


And here are the BEE-YOU-TI-FUL new colors! We have 5 new In Colors, 10 new Core Colors (this means they will be found within our 4 Color Collections), and 6 returning colors-these are favorite In Colors from prior years that are now being added to our Color Collections.

Of course I have a few favorite new colors already! As a demonstrator I’ve had early access to these new colors and have been trying out some of them 🙂 My new favorite In Color for 2018-2020 is Pineapple Punch (love, love!). So far my favorite new Core Color is Gorgeous Grape. Now, you realize that these are subject to change. As I start to really use them I’ve been known to fall in love with a new color almost daily!! And, my absolute favorite Returning Color is Mint Macaron. This was an In Color a few years ago and I was so sad when it retired. I couldn’t be more excited that it’s back!

Do you need a new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog? My current customers each get a new catalog and a handmade card. If you’d like one, simply place an order of any size through my ONLINE STORE HERE and I’ll get a catalog out to you right away 🙂 I would love to be your demonstrator!



Pretty Spring Gift Bag!

Stampin' Up! Share What You Love Bag - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup
Sometimes I just want to create something different! The Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is SO totally gorgeous that it has to be used as much as possible. Today I decided to make a sweet gift bag using an entire 12″ x 12″ sheet of this pretty paper and my trust Envelope Punch Board!

The pattern for the bag is from Sam Donald (Pootles) and can be found here. Her tutorial is so good there is no need for me to reinvent it 🙂 It’s a darling fold-over bag and looks so fabulous made in this designer paper.

To decorate the front of the bag I created a daisy using the Daisy Punch and the backside of the designer paper. Each side of this paper is a gorgeous hand-drawn design and one side has a pearlescent finish. The daisy is placed on a pearlized doily and I’ve added some leaves punched using Lemon Lime Twist card stock. It’s truly easy to create with these coordinated products!

Sneak Peek: Abstract Impressions!

Stampin' Up! Springtime Impressions Dies - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup

Today I have a fun sneak peek for you! This is a fabulous new bundle called Abstract Impressions. The stamp set has abstract floral images and sentiments, which I always look for in a stamp set. It’s good to have both – the stamp set is much more versatile that way.

Gorgeous Grape is the darker purple and Highland Heather is the lighter one. They are striking! Here I’ve also used Lemon Lime Twist as the green accent.

The sneak peek today is a darling new stamp set called Varied Vases. It was created by my upline, Mary Fish, who is a million dollar seller for Stampin’ Up! The set has a coordinating punch that allowed me to punch out the vase, leaves and tulips. Cute, right?
