Tomorrow is a BIG day!!

A big Stampin' up day tomorrow!!  Tomorrow is when the retiring list is posted.  I am going to be away on a work trip but promise to get it up here as quick as I can.  If any of your favourites are on there, get them as quickly as you can!!  They go quick and once they are gone, they are gone.

Also, for demonstrators, we get our first sneak peek at some new products from the new 2010-2011 catalog!!  I can't share those but only a month until I can!  I promise to share my creations with my preorder goodies once I can.

New Stamp Review

So I haven't been on my blog much at all for a couple months and really have no excuse other than... I've just been busy living life!!  But I want to get back on here inspring you and showing you what inspires me.  Today, I wanted to highlight a stamp set I just received yesterday in an order. I usually look around on the internet for ideas when I order stamp sets and these super talents ladies just took my breath away.  (I have included the link to both of their sites for you - all credit to them, I didn't make either of these cards!!)

The set I chose was the Bouquet Bunch that is in the new Summer Mini catalog (link on side to pdf of catalog).  I think this is a super cute multi-purpose set that you could just use for ever!!  You can colour, ink, pastel, emboss, etc, etc, etc...  I love nice simple sets that have so many possibilities.
This card is one from Lori Hunter - that I think is totally fabulous.  It is one of the cutest cards I've seen in a while.  I especially love how she did the awning. 

This next one is from Amy O'Neill.  I couldn't find a blog for her but will keep looking and add the link if I find it.  I love the colours she uses.  So fresh and bright!  It also features the new Lattice Impressions Folder which I think is wonderful.  I am finding good excuses to use it and I love how she used it as an accent in the red.  It just pops the flowers!

Hope you like this set as much as I do.  I hope to post the cards from my May card group soon.

Take some time to do something scrappy today!

Color Renovation

Stampin' Up is doing renovations!!  It is out with old, and sometimes tired colours and in with a few new and a few favourite returning In-colours.  I for one am very excited with the change.  They have kept a few similar names for these colour collections, but mixed the colours up in really eye-pleasing and inspiring ways.

Any colours you don't see in the new colour collections are retiring.  Stock up on any favourites while you still can!!  They are only around while supplies last or June 30th... whichever comes first.
