Snuggles and Smooches for Him and Her

Sometimes it's hard to get a touchy-feely look for both guys and gals with the same stamp set, without it looking effeminate, but I think Snuggles and Smooches does the trick. All I did was switch out the color palette, and it was a done deal.


And I LOVE how the big heart coordinates with the Sweetheart Punch, and the medium one coordinates with the the heart in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack--brings everything together so fast! Although this set was released just before Valentine's Day, it makes sweet cards for your cutie pies, any time of year! Check out all the images in the set:


The Snuggles and Smooches stamp set is available only in photopolymer (fabulous for easy image layering), so make sure you've got some Clear Blocks to use with it.

Stampin' Supplies: Snuggles and Smooches stamp set, Whisper White card stock, Tempting Turquoise ink pad & card stock, Soft Sky ink pad & card stock, Island Indigo ink pad, Melon Mambo ink pad & card stock, Pink Pirouette ink pad & card stock, Rose Red ink pad, Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Sweetheart Punch, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.

Guy Greetings: Happy Birthday Like a Sir!

When the Guy Greetings stamp set meets the Mustache Die, the monocle comes out...and I imagine if this card could talk, it would also have a stuffy British accent... (Note: the Mustache Die is retiring, and currently 50% OFF, so get yours NOW. If it doesn't come up when you click that link, it could be sold out already, sorry!)


I didn't even know this was a thing, but when I showed my daughter this card, she texted me back and said, "Like a Sir!". I thought she was just being naturally clever, but apparently she'd had a little help from the interwebs. "Like a Sir" comes from a meme I somehow missed, probably because I don't spend my life on tumblr. Hilariously enough, I made this card for my son...who plays Minecraft...and I found THIS "Like a Sir" parody when I was looking up the meme. So, for the inside of this card, I'll now have to write "Celebrate Like a Sir!". Ahhhh, synchronicity.

Stampin' Supplies: Guy Greetings stamp set, Mustache Die, Typeset Designer Series Paper, Vellum Cardstock, Basic Black Cardstock, Very Vanilla Cardstock, Transfer Adhesive Sheets (to attach vellum), Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad (of course, because a sir wears a tuxedo!), Ornate Tag Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch, 1/8" Basic Black Tafetta Ribbon (different from the one shown), 1/8" Gold Ribbon, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals.

By the way, the mustache and monocle design was not my original idea. It was shared by a fellow demonstrator, on a demonstrators-only gallery called Stampin' Connection, which is hosted by Stampin' Up!. Just another of the exclusive perks you can enjoy when you Become a Demonstrator!

Stampin' Up! 2015 Retiring Lists with Discounts up to 50% OFF

UPDATE: ordering demand for these products has caused some slowing on the Stampin' Up! web sites. Please be aware that currently, you may experience a slow shopping process in my Online Store.


TODAY IS THE DAY!!!
Check out the products that are retiring from Stampin' Up! this year:



There are a few things you may not realize at first glance, so let me make note of them for you here:
  • EVERYTHING MY DIGITAL STUDIO IS RETIRING...software, downloads, everything
  • Accessories, Tools, Embellishments, Pre-printed items, and the like, are ONLY available while supplies last (retiring inks, reinkers, and card stock are usually the first to go!)
  • Since Stampin' Up! manufactures their own stamp sets, these will be guaranteed availability through May 26th (new catalog debuts June 2nd)
  • Retiring items marked with ** on the list, denote that only certain parts of the item are retiring. You'll need to check the rest of the list to confirm. (i.e., a Bundle including stamps & dies may be listed as retired, but only the dies are retiring)
  • Please note that Basic Black and Basic Gray inks are listed as retiring, only because they will be returning in the new catalog in improved, archival formulations.

Stampin' Up!'s Butterflies Have Landed with a SPECIAL OFFER!

These pretties went on back order a long time ago, and then all the dock strikes happened, and the item number was pulled and unavailable for ordering. Sad face. Very sad face. But now, THEY'RE BACK!!! Not just coming, but HERE, and available for order!!! To celebrate, Stampin' Up! is offering two very special,
SPECIAL OFFERS, through April 30, 2015:


Order the Butterflies Thinlits Dies (shown above) at 15% OFF!!!


Order any Butterfly Basics Bundle* (already 15% OFF) and choose one
FREE item from the selection below:

Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper (item 138633)
Best Year Ever Accessory Pack (item 138634)
Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper (item 138635)

*The Bundles include the stamp set in your choice of wood-mount, clear-mount, or photopolymer (in English, French, or Spanish), and the coordinating
Butterflies Thinlits Dies.

Just for reference, the two larger dies stand alone, but the smallest butterfly die coordinates with the butterfly image in the stamp set, to make a perfect cut-out. There is also a smaller butterfly in the stamp set that can be punched out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch. The circular date image can be punched out with the 3/4" Circle Punch, and the tiny solid flower image is perfectly framed by the round label in the Little Labels Punch Pack. And on a final note, if you ARE getting the coordinating stamp set, I recommend photopolymer for this one, because it makes layering the images SO much easier!

How to Sale-a-Brate in 10 Days or Less!

Because you have less than 10 days left!!! First, a quick apology...I finally got to feeling better, started catching up and making plans, and then all of a sudden had an awful allergic reaction that pretty much incapacitated me for over a week! I'm not purposefully ignoring you, I promise. I'm still having setbacks, but also bursts of energy, so I thought I'd try to line everything up for you in one final Sale-a-Bration post, so you can cash in before it ends on March 31st!!! To recap, there are THREE ways to Sale-a-Brate: 1) you get to choose one FREE Sale-a-Bration Item for every $50 in merchandise you purchase, 2) you get $25 extra in FREE merchandise of your choice as a Host of a Party with at least $250 in sales, and 3) when you Become a Demonstrator you may either choose (2) FREE Sale-a-Bration Items or choose a FREE Project Kit from a selection.

Before going further, there have been some product changes and updates you should know about. Blendabilities alcohol markers are no longer available to choose as FREE Sale-a-Bration Items, as that product line has been discontinued for now. Stampin' Up! learned of manufacturer's defects which could not be remedied in the foreseeable future. Due to these items no longer being available, an increased demand for the remaining FREE Sale-a-Bration Items has been forecasted. As a result, you will want to take note that FREE Sale-a-Bration Items are now available only while supplies last--with the exception of STAMP SETS! (Stampin' Up! manufactures their own sets, so they will be available on demand.) The following PDF shows the items which are currently available for order as FREE Sale-a-Bration Items:



OHHHH Yeahhhhhh, and before I forget, here is a winner of a choice for something fun, ON SALE FOR $5 OFF...which immediately qualifies you for one FREE Sale-a-Bration Item!!!

Don't Haz a Sad, Get Paper Pumpkin!


Both kitties in the picture above have boxes, but only the kitty on the right has Paper Pumpkin boxes! They are on the table behind her in the upper right. You can see she is dreamily anticipating her creative escape. And as proof that Paper Pumpkin gives you SQUEEE...here is the project that the right kitty made with her kit in February:


There are two ways to get your SQUEEE:
  1. Prepaid Subcription - This one is a fabulous deal, and the 3-Month Prepaid Subscription is on SALE during Sale-a-Bration. You get $5 OFF the regular price, PLUS you get to pick one FREE Sale-a-Bration item with it. I heartily recommend this option. (ps: in case you haven't heard, there are 4 more new items to choose from since March 1st!)
  2. Monthly Subscription - This option allows you to opt to receive one month's Paper Pumpkin kit at a time. It automatically renews each month, but you can Skip or Cancel at anytime.

POTENTIAL SADZ TO AVOID: Don't miss the monthly deadline of the 10th by 11:59pm MT if you want to order that month's kit. To get one month at a time, you'll SIGN UP HERE by the deadline. If you get a Prepaid Subscription, you will get an email with a promo code, and you'll need to ENTER YOUR PROMO CODE HERE by the deadline.

Don't Haz a Sad...Haz a SQUEEE!!! Get Paper Pumpkin!
