A Green Day

No not the band but class cards two weeks ago! These were some quick and fairly easy cards that I made last year in a green stage that I went through.

The colours are Old Olive and Very Vanilla. The stamping was done with Old Olive and Whisper White. The stamp sets were Live Your Dreams, All Scallops and Embrace Life. These sets are all from the Summer Mini which runs out at the end of the month. I also used the Scallop Edge Punch, 1 3/8", 1 1/4" circle punches.

Last Weeks Class Cards

I have been in a bit of a girly mode lately. The cards that we did in class last week were part of this latest craze I am going through.
The colours for each card are Rose Red and Pretty in Pink with a little Whisper White.
The Flower Bud card was stamped with En Francais background stamp. This was also used to stamp directly onto the Whisper White Taffeta ribbon. The petals were firstly crimped to break down the paper and then punched with the Oval punches. The pearl flower centre is from the Pretties Kit and best wishes is from Short & Sweet.

The second card was also stamped with En Francais background stamp. The flowers are from the Embrace Life set in the Summer Mini. I love this set and fingers crossed we will get it in the new catalogue in April. I have used Whisper White grosgrain ribbon and the hat pin and beads are from the Pretties Kit.
These are two of my favourites from my recent classes. I am not normally a pink person but I enjoyed making these.

The Retired List Is Here

The much awaited Retirement List is here and it is a big one!! As much as I am going to miss some of the fabulous stamps and accessories on this list, I can't wait for April 1 to see what new goodies we are going to get.

Some things are going so quickly and I will try to keep you up to date but if there is anything in particular that you have your heart set on all I can say is get in quick and don't be disappointed.

Take a look at the list HERE. There are some great specials within this list. The items marked with one asterisk* are discounted by 25% and those with two asterisk** are discounted by 50%. It is a good idea to print it out and mark off your catalogue.

A bit of a hot tip is that ink pads are going up next year to $11.95 so now is a great time to get your favourite colours at $9.95.
