Blog Candy … didn’t happen.  I’m really sorry I posted last week that I was going to post some blog candy on my blog over the weekend and then I didn’t.  I’d like to explain … I had a really good customer remind me that many people were out of town and it wasn’t fair… that I should wait.  So, that’s what I did. I appreciate that she knows me well enough to tell me.

 I still have the basket of goodies and what I’ll do is post it  for next weekend … turns out it will better anyway because I’ll be a total basket case and will need all your lovely comments. 

Brooke is leaving for Paris on Saturday and yes she is very fortunate …what an opportunity!!   We are very proud!  But on the other hand my baby is going somewhere far far away.  Dave reminds me all the time I’m overly dramatic and he’s right …but I am who I am.   

When my assistant came in to work today and I told her about my two hour cry fest last night.  Truth be told I was watching the Bachelorette and when they had Eric on the screen I couldn’t help but cry … and then it made me think of Brooke leaving …. so two hours later I had cried myself to sleep.   (Don’t tell her!)   So, when I was telling Laura I said “I need something to distract me for at least 48 hours” …… and it came to me … I’m going home.  Brooke’s flight leaves at 10:15 for Paris and mines leaves at 10:35 for Tennessee.  Being with my family will be just what I need … zero alone time to think about Brooke not being here.

The next couple days I’lll share some swap cards or some cards sent to me and then next week I’ll be placing my order on June 2nd for new product.  My question is … do you want me to do a Live Stream on June 2nd when the catalog goes live or wait until I get the new product in my hands … or do both?  I could do a live stream on Tuesday (June 3rd) and then another.  Let me know your thoughts.

One more question before I stop … have you subscribed to my Chic n Scratch facebook page?  If not, click here and be sure to click on the Like button so you will continue to see my posts (for example I’m posting a picture later today of my downline kits that are shipping this week).

One more quick note … I’ve had a few ladies ask me why haven’t I been stamping (they ask nicely) … I have been … but it’s been for Stamp Club Online and Chic n Clique.  When I’m off work for a week or two .. it takes me a long time to get caught up. I used to get very stressed about not posting a project every week …. I don’t anymore because the majority of you know that when the new catalog product gets in my hands … it will be game on .. until next spring (I always hit a slump in April & May).

Thanks and have a great day!!!

Hamburger Box

 Stampin’ Up! Hamburger Box

hamburgerboxb

My project today is the brand new Hamburger Box made with the Hamburger Box Die featured in the brand new Stampin’ Up! catalog.  

When I got the new Catalog I was thrilled that we had a couple new boxes in there …. a Hamburger Box and Fry box.

To make this box I used the Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper that is sadly retiring on June 2nd.  I used the Something to Say stamp set and it’s on page 104 of the new catalog and I colored it with  … Coastal Cabana, Tangerine Tango and Soft Suede.

Did you notice the Baked Brown Sugar Thick Bakers Twine

hamburgerboxc

This is the project I was working on last week when the mirror fell off the wall and came crashing down on my computer … I’ll always think about that when I make a hamburger box.

Here’s the video on how to make the Hamburger Box:

Personal  Note

The past couple months have not been easy!  I’m working … but it almost doesn’t seem like it.   Please know that if I don’t post on my blog  … I’m still working …. just on different things.  For example yesterday I cleared out all the retired stamps, cleaned my desk (it had been buried for too long) and shipped catalogs (with the help of Laura).  I picked up my Mac from the Apple store and do you want to hear that my 13 month old printer died and I had to go buy a new one this morning (two trips to Staples)?

So, long story short I’m working but it’s more behind the scenes. 

Last night I was creating projects for this site and Chic n Clique and every single project either included something that was retiring or something that isn’t available until June 2nd.   I’m really looking forward to creating with all new product in June and not having to think about everything (you know what I mean?).

One more quick note and then back to work I go … I’m not sure why but I’m TOTALLY exhausted.  I’m sleeping every night …but I wake up with very little energy.  My doctor wants me to exercise every day for 15 minutes  but my argument is ….. that’s 15 minute of work I could be doing and I don’t have the time right now.  

Have a great day!

Sketched Birthday Card

 sketched-birthdaycardb

The card I’m sharing with you today was given to me at the Stampin’ Up! Catalog Premiere last month.  It’s a 4 x 4 card and one of my favorite sizes.  Thanks Sally … I love it!

The colors are Pink Pirouette and Soft Sky and she embossed the Happy Birthday with white embossing powder.

Sally used the Sketched Birthday Stamp Set with the Designer Series Paper Stacks.  I’m so happy those packs of paper are not on the retired lists.

Speaking of retired lists … we’ve got a few more weeks before these items are gone forever.
