 You’ll notice that they are twice the size and thicker 🙂 I listened to all your requests and I hope that you love the new design as much as I do!  I’ve posted a few extra pictures here so you can see the difference.

Matchbox Messages Scallop Box

Scallop Box  Good morning!!

I'm so happy to be back on my regular schedule. The first two weeks of March I was trying to tackle a months worth of work and I hit a few bumps in the road.  If I've forgotten something….please let me know!! 

Today's project is one I made before I left but I thought I should wait until the Occasions Mini Catalog was in your hands to show it…..hopefully you've received it.

My project was made with the Box with Scallops Big Shot Die and I used the Matchbox Messages stamp set for the greeting.  That set is so cute and I couldn't resist getting it because I love everything that goes with our punches!!  It's on page 6 of the Mini Catalog and it will be available starting tomorrow (item number 113800 and it's $25.95).   But…. beware, the online ordering system will be down for a short period while they change over from the Sale-a-bration Mini to the Occasions Mini.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.  

Speaking of Sale-a-bration…..don't forget today is the last day to get a free item with a $50 order.   And it's the last day the Demonstrator Starter Kit is on Sale.  If you're thinking of joining and want to sign up before the sale ends, contact me. My email is [email protected].    I'll be in and out today but I'll check my email often.

Have a great day and see ya tomorrow!

Home at last :)

Bella Blossoms post it


We made it home last night and it was truly a miracle!  But……I won't go into that just yet (Stay tuned this week). 

 Let's talk about this darling project first… was on display during the incentive trip and I was super excited to see a new post it note holder!!

I'm not sure who made it but it's right up my alley and here's a picture of the inside…..cute isn't it? Bella Blossoms post it inside I can't wait to make one myself!!

The image is from the Bella Blossoms stamp set and it's on our Dormant List. (Item number is 111596 and it's 23.95).  If you have the 2008 Fall & Winter Idea Book & Catalog it's on page 102.

Have a good night!

p.s.  Our trip to Hawaii was amazing and there's so much to tell that I'm not sure where to start.  I also took around a thousand photos :)  In the next few days I'll be playing catch up and I'll try to get some photos loaded in the Hawaii album (on the right side). 

p.s.s. A few people have ask about the new products and new colors. I will not be sharing any details.  I'm sorry if you're expecting it, but I really do try to follow the rules & we've been told that it's only fair that Stampin' UP! introduce the new product.  When it's worded like that I totally agree with them and I'm sure you do too. Can you imagine if someone told you about my Chic Stand before I had a chance? It would break my heart!!  Speaking of Chic Stands….they've shipped and should arrive this week.  I'll be posting the details very soon 🙂

Eastern Bloom notepad

Hawaii notepad Hi, I covered this note pad to bring on my trip ….but I accidentally left it on my desk.  I'm just happy all I forgot were my almonds and my notepad!!

I used the Eastern Blooms stamp set and stamped one flower in Kiwi Kiss and the other two in Baja Breeze.  I cut them out and attached them with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

Have a great day!

p.s. Day two of Hawaii has been great!  Started out just like yesterday…watching the whales. Then we drove to Kona and ate lunch at Bubba Gumps.  We did the Forrest Gump trivia and didn't miss a single question 🙂

Big Shot MatchBox

Matchbox Tea Party Hi from Hawaii 🙂 

My project today was made with the brand new die for the Big Shot.  It's the Matchbox die and it's available April 1st & you'll find it in the Occasions Mini Catalog

 The Mini Catalog features some amazing new product and if you're a customer of mine you should be receiving this catalog any day!!  (quick reminder for the girls on my team….if you're a new demonstrator, you can pre-order those items now…email me if you need help.)

I made the Matchbox with the Tea Party Designer Paper and the Quilt Quips stamp set.  The butterfly is layered onto squares and the scallop was punched with the Scallop Square punch. If you're curious about the Matchbox….it works just like the Nugget Box, it's just cuter!! 

Have a great day & thanks for stopping by!

p.s. Day one of Hawaii has been fantastic.  We started out the day on the balcony drinking our morning coffee and watching the whales …it seriously brought tears to my eyes.  Next….Chase & Dave went snorkeling and Chase cut his hand : O  more news soon!

Top Note Quilt

Top Note Quilt Good morning!

Isn't this card amazing?   Melissa gave me this card yesterday & I think I squealed with delight when she handed it to me.   I love it….thanks Melissa!!

I thought you all would like to know how it was made….so I wrote the instructions on a picture :)  Although some of the products are retired…I copied it exactly so you can see how it was made.  But ….can't you see the Tea Party Designer Paper with this? 

She used the Top Note Die & the Stampin' Up! Backgrounds #1 Texturz Plate. Here's the picture…Top Note Quilt instructions (you can click on it to view it larger). 

The stitching was done with a black marker & the edges were sponged.  Wouldn't you love to have a quilt with those colors?

Thanks for all the birthday wishes & goodies…I'll be sharing more pictures this weekend. 

Busy busy day….four more days until we leave for the Stampin' Up! Hawaii trip and I've got to a million things to do! 

See ya tomorrow 🙂

p.s. here's a picture of the bags I buy to make the Top Note bag 🙂  I found them at Michaels.Paper Sacks
