Another Thank You for My Customers

I'm a little late posting my March 2016 Customer Appreciation Cards (although I did mail them on time)!  As I've mentioned before, my life is a bit crazy right now and will be over the next few months.  I can't believe I will be a first-time Nana in less than 6 weeks!  We've had 2 baby showers for my daughter and the second shower had 40 attendees, so we have baby stuff EVERYWHERE!  We will finally be able to begin converting the guest room to a nursery this weekend as we should have no more guests until after baby arrives. 
 
Today's card is sweet and simple.  I love how easy it was to put together.  You could easily change things up by alternating the patterned circles as well.  The envelope liner was created with the Envelope Liner Framelit, which will be retiring with this catalog and is available while supplies last.  The sentiment was stamped with Another Thank You, which is also on the retirement list.  I used the Watermelon Wonder Designer Series Paper from the 2015-2017 Designer Series Paper Stack, which will be returning in the 2016-2017 Idea Book and Catalog!!  The small heart was punched using the Owl Builder Punch.

It's Retirement Time!

It's that time of year when we must look to the future and say goodbye to some of our favorite Stampin' Up! products.  Don't fret, the new catalog is going to be absolutely AMAZING and there will be TONS of new product for you to drool over!  In the meantime, check out the retirement list and get any of the items you are missing and can't live without (HINT:  In-Color items go extremely fast!).   Click here to view the Retiring List and be sure to visit my store to make your purchases!  You don't want to be that person that is begging and pleading for someone to find you this or that!

Throwback Thursday


Today's card is the second in a series of four baby shower thank you cards my daughter created for her upcoming baby showers.  I helped her with the first one, but she did the rest on her own with very little help from Mom.  I'm really proud of her.  She made a total of 60 cards! 
 
 

Retired product used: 
Pretty in Pink Cardstock (can be replaced with either Pink Pirouette or Blushing Bride)
Subtles and Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack (this was a previous year's design - you can still buy Paper Stacks in all of our color families, the design changes each year)
Not sure which embossing folder this is - possibly Decorative Dots (can be replaced with embossing folder of choice)

Blog Activity Update

As I've mentioned before, my daughter is having her first baby (a little girl) in 8 weeks.  We couldn't be more excited!  She and her fiancĂ© live in my house with her brother and me (her dad does contract work and is away from home a lot) and we have a LOT to do to prepare for Little Girl's arrival.  Unfortunately, a lot of it we can't get accomplished until after her baby shower in a week and a half, such as converting the guest room to a nursery, paint and all, and picking up any items she still needs after her baby showers.  I will still be crafting and posting, but in all probability, I will not have a consistent schedule until at least mid-June to early July.  I hope you all will have patience with me as our family makes the adjustment to having a newborn in the house again! 
 
Take care and Happy Stamping!

Weekly Deals - Big Announcement

 
Weekly Deals began to help reduce overstocked inventory. As we've reduced excess inventory, the variety of products available for Weekly Deals has decreased, making the deals less exciting, so we're replacing Weekly Deals with a less frequent but better promotion called Special Offers. These Special Offers will occur every few months as inventory allows (the goal is still to reduce overstocked inventory) with more products and discount tiers than Weekly Deals (offers may vary per market). The last sets of Weekly Deals will be April 5-18.
 
In the meantime, don't miss out on this week's Weekly Deals!  There is some amazing product on sale this week.
