Something Old & Something New
May 19, 2016
Welcome to the Control Freaks monthly blog tour! If you started at the beginning of the tour, you just visited the very talented, Heidi Baks. She always creates the most amazing cards!
This month has been crazy busy with the end of the school year, recitals, presentations, parties, and preparing for my son to leave for Navy boot camp. We are doing another going away party this weekend and have lots of friends & family coming to say good-bye. I get anxiety just looking at our calendar! If I can make it through the next 2 weeks, it will be good. Our theme for the blog hop this month is something old and something new.....meaning that we are combining retiring products with products that will be available with the new catalog on June 1st. I've had so little stamping time this month, so this was a nice challenge.
I'm really going to miss the It's My Party Designer Series Paper stack. This is one of the brightest, boldest, and largest paper stacks that Stampin' Up! has ever offered. I know that I've sold a bunch of them already and there is no way that anyone has been able to use the entire stack yet. I still have a bunch left myself. So for today's card, I paired the paper with a new stamp set called Confetti Celebration. These work so well together so you'll definitely want to add this stamp set to your wish list.
I also used quite a few new products that are great for making shaker cards. Beginning June 1st, you'll be able to acquire Foam Adhesive Strips (essentially Dimensionals is strip form), Layering Squares Framelits, Thick White Baker's Twine (goes with EVERYTHING), and a fabulous Sprinkles punch (makes confetti--FUN!).
If you haven't purchased the It's My Party Designer Series Paper stack, don't wait any longer. It's only available while supplies last or May 31st, whichever comes first. You will be very sad if you don't get this before it's gone forever. LOL!
Please take a moment and leave a comment for the designers on the blog hop. We love to hear from you!
Thanks so much for stopping by my little corner of the web! Don't forget to visit Wendy Weixler to continue on the blog tour.
