Welcome, welcome to this fun hop! You will see some fabulous projects today so be sure to make the full circle of those participating.

Our sketch challenge is as you see to the left, lots of open space. I chose to use an embossing folder called Painted Posies 3D embossing Folder to be the center of attention. Behind in is a panel of Crumb Cake card stock and behind that is the Fancy Flora DSP (retiring!).

As you can also see, I’ve tied a ribbon around the embossing folder – and that is the Windowpane Check ribbon (retiring!). Just beneath the ribbon are three Opal Rounds (also retiring!) Do you get what I’m doing? Yep – using retiring product because it needs using and new items are quickly taking over :O)

For the inside of the card, you can actually see the card base… Sahara Sand. I used another panel of the Fancy Flora DSP that really coordinates well with the card base. This is an ‘all occasion’ kind of card, one that can be sent just to connect with another to show you care. Near the bottom I adhered a narrow strip (about 1/4″) that goes the full width of the DSP panel – and really like the look. I like the way it ties everything together.

For the envelope I used another piece of the Fancy Flora DSP to adhere to the flap – and that was it.

With the introduction of the new 2023-2024 Annual Catalog going LIVE May 2, several items are retiring… from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog AND the Jan-April 2023 Mini Catalog. As so many items are being sold out rapidly, best thing to do is visit my ‘shop’ and see what’s still available. If it’s listed, it’s available. If it isn’t listed, it’s sold out – simple as that. The sale goes to May 1, 2023.

And… here’s my HOST CODE CXR49K4W for ordering any products from the retiring lists or any other items… order from me here and be sure to use my HOST CODE CXR49K4W. Be sure my name is listed as your demonstrator at the top of the page!

When you place an order of $50 or more (before shipping & taxes), you receive from me a SU! item valued up to $10 + Star-Studded Rewards. If your order exceeds $150, do not use my HOST CODE as SU! has it’s own rewards from which you may choose. You will still receive that FREE ITEM from me up to $10 + the Star-Studded Rewards.  And if your order is $50 or more I will also send you my monthly class tutorials. BONUS! :O)

So MANY exciting new colors in the 2023-2024 Annual catalog. If you were a customer of mine this past year and placed an order over $50, you should be receiving your catalog – they have been mailed! And having said that, I’m offering a Designer Series Paper share from the Stampin’ Up! 2023-2024 Annual Catalog. Join the fun!!  I’ll place the share order early on May 2 and use the expedited shipping option and should be able to have the shares cut, bundled and back out to you during the week of May 8. You are going to LOVE these new papers…

How my shares work:  I order full packs of all of the Designer Series Papers listed below, I cut them into 6 x 6 pieces (or 6 x 12 for double shares) and you receive one panel of each design from each pack on the list.  I pack up the paper in a cellophane bag and mail it back out to you just as quickly as I can.  Shares give you a working sample of all of the papers so that you can decide which ones to order in full packs! :O)

Below is the list of Designer Series Paper Shares that I am offering from the new Annual Catalog!
