Pumpkins in the Spring?!

Happy Mail Day * April Paper Pumpkin has arrived!  
Wanna know why that makes it such a 'happy mail' day for me?

  • It is all-inclusive!  .... really?
  • exclusive Stampin' Up! stamps
  • Stampin' Up! inks
  • pre-cut card stocks
  • pre-cut papers
  • embellishments 
  • special adhesives if needed (i.e. Dimensionals)
  • envelopes for the card projects
  • perfectly portable in its own box
  • I just add my own regular adhesive and my scissors!
Enjoy watching April's Paper Pumpkin take shape!

Psssst!  It's ready to take along if you hope for a little creative break during travels or weekend away, and it's actually quite kid-friendly as well.  Invite a niece, nephew, Grand, to create with you for a treasured time they will long remember.  Better yet, give a 3-month subscription as a very special recurring birthday gift they'll receive in the mail!

Here's a sneak peek at the May Paper Pumpkin kit! 

At our OnStage event earlier this month, we got to make one of the cards coming up in this kit.  The Many Manly Occasions kit will include 8 laser-cut cards and envelopes ... and it is seriously a terrific kit!  

Tex's Tip:  Refer your friends to subscribe from me by May 10 to get a kit, then come over & create them with me, or if you're not close by, invite your friends over for your own Paper Pumpkin creative evening!  Let me know if 2 or more friends subscribe along with you, via my link, and you'll be receiving a Bev Bonus from me!

Discovering Wings > Flying Away? * Get Well!

Did you notice the Retiring List?  (<< click to view)
In stampy-reality, it signals "time to finish the wish list".  

Did you happen to notice that the Bird Builder Punch is getting ready to discover its wings and 'leave the nest' ...  flying away ... leaving just as Spring is beginning to wake up across the USA?
Bev's confession:  I'm rather bummed about this.   Punch fan here ... and this one is a 'must have', in my opinion (IMO).

So in my quest to use retiring products while they're still available, I've created a CAS card suitable for your stash box ... this one is for those 'get well' needs that pop up out of nowhere.  

Truly an easy to recreate card ... and the majority of 
products used here are retiring!  
Are you a fan of punches?  Create shapes at your stampin' table, in your kitchen, sitting in front of the TV, or while riding in a car.  
Punches are:
  • portable
  • hand-held
  • easily shoved into your crafty tote
  • no machine required!
  • What's not to love?  
I whole-heartedly recommend scooping up the delightful Curvy Corner Trio punch before it disappears, unless you don't mind being stuck with coming over here to use mine every time you wish you had one.  

Remember to use the April Retiring Host Code D3BDK2GT when you order!   My exclusive Bev Bonus for you is a free stamp set for your orders of +$50 before tax + shipping!  Once I receive your qualifying online order I'll arrange that with you via email.  
*Click here to start shopping while retiring items are available.

Meanwhile here in the studio, preparations are in full swing here for a team stamp-together this weekend.  Sharing, stamping, showing, sipping, surprises, learning ... and the best part >>> lots of friends making new friends and team fellowship with fabby crafty-loving peeps!  We always have room for more, whenever you'd like to step inside our delightful group!

Following My Own Advice * Use It!

It's been a beautiful weekend here so far, including a fun + fabby class yesterday and some enjoyable time creating this afternoon.    Since the Retirement List has been published (linked over in the right-side column!), I'm turning some of my focus toward items that are retiring, but not entirely ignoring things that are sticking around.  

Being a card-maker, I naturally send cards after making them!  So this afternoon I concentrated on one clean'n simple (CAS) design while using some of the retiring In Colors.  

Actually ...  I created several, then listened to my own inner voice.  We all like to use what we have, and I'm certainly no different!  
I often advise customers and team members to use what you have when modifying or recreating something later.   So, I browsed through my collection of sequins, buttons'n such and made a fun find!  

The left-over sequins from a previous in-color assortment just happened to work perfectly with the Lost Lagoon and the Tangelo Twist versions of this card.  And the gold sequins in the current Metallic Sequins Assortment provides the perfect flat bling for the Hello Honey version.  
So ... I've named a few retiring items ... and used more than I've named above.  There are 2 more items used that are retiring, so if you'd like to add either the Curvy Corner Trio Punch and/or the One Big Meaning stamp set to your collection, now is the time!  

Special Note!  If your order is $50 or more before tax/shipping, I'll have a little surprise for you too!  When ordering during April, use this Host Code: D3BDK2GT  Once I know you've ordered via this specia host code I will email you to let you choose your bonus!  This exclusive offer applies only during April 2016 when using the Host Code: D3BK2GT .  It's simply an added bonus from me to you!  Click here to get started!
