How this special came about … in the years past I’ve offered In-Color Bundles … and as I was doing the math on what I could offer …. it hit me that the simplest thing to do is offer Double Chic Rewards.
If you’ve not kept track of your punches or need help please let me know and I’d be happy to help you.

Many of you ask how my health is and so I thought I would give you an update since I know many of you share Thyroid issues. I had my ultrasound this week and everything looked good.
My thyroid medicine was increased just a tad … and I’m hoping that it will help. I don’t feel bad .. but I’m still a little sluggish (once noon hits I’m tired).
Our little parakeet died yesterday. It was very sad and it broke my heart! Especially since Dave was out of town and I had to bury her. She’s resting beside our beloved Chirpy … (our first parakeet that talked up a storm). We’ve had her about 7 or 8 years and she’s the first pet that I’ve ever had that I couldn’t tame. Her name went from Girly Girl to Devil Bird … I’m not sure why she would never let us hold her (without biting the heck out of us). Dave has accepted we’ll get another bird … Brooke wants to know when …. my answer is we’ll mourn little devil bird for a while and then we’ll adopt a new one (preferably a male that will talk to us).
I have a Gift Bag for you today and I got this idea from our Brand New Stampin’ Up! Catalog that goes live on Friday. Click here to order a Catalog or register for a Free one.
Online ordering will be down from midnight to noon on Friday. If you want to send me your order via email I’d be happy to place it for you when the site is back up.
Now let’s chat about the Gift Bag …
I used the Paper Sacks that you can find at your local Craft Store and they measure 3-1/2 x 2 x 6-3/4.
I folded the top down and added the pennant using Snail Adhesive. Cut two holes for the White Taffeta Ribbon.
The Pennant was made with the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stacks and it measures 1-3/4 x 4. I used the 1-3/8 Square Punch to pennant the end.
Next I cut out a piece of Twitterpated Designers Series paper using the Apothecary Accents Framelits. Punch a hole at the top with the 1-1/6 Circle punch.
I stamped the “For You” from the Layered Labels Stamp set with Baja Breeze ink and cut it out with the Oval Punch.
I added the tag to bag with White Bakers Twine and I put a Stampin Dimensional on the back.

The sign up box for the New Catalog Product Shares is how we’re handling it (verses using emials). Click here if you’d like to purchase a Product Share. My first order will be placed on Friday, May 31st.
My card today is using some new product and I’m counting the days until the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog goes live on May 31st. Mark your calendars .. I’ll be doing a LIVE Stream on Friday (May 31st) to go over the new catalog with you. I’ll announce the time later next week (it will be in the evening).
I used the Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper and it’s just one of the awesome papers that’s included in my Product Shares this year. If you’ve already got your hands on our new Catalog .. you know there are some really cute Designer Series Papers this year!!
The base of my card is Soft Sky and I choose that color just so I could use my new photo prop (bowl).
People always ask me where I get my photo props so I’ll try to include those in the future … this bowl came from the Anthropologie store and it cost $2.50 … I couldn’t snatch it up fast enough!!! I wish I had bought a few more …. so I could eat my fruit from it. If you’ve ever read the book Simple Abundance … you get it. I surround myself with little things that put a smile on my face. For example ….every day I use a real silver spoon to stir my coffee (found them at a antique store for a couple bucks).
Let’s get back to the card … The layer at the bottom is one of the new In-Colors called Baked Brown Sugar and when you purchase the “I want it all Product Shares Bundle” you’ll receive a card stock sampler of all the new In-Colors.

Thanks & have a great day!
