Aack! I can't believe it's already the end of May. I must have blinked or something, cause last time I checked, it was still April!! I am super excited though. Next week is June which means Stampin' Up!'s new catalog goes live. I got a sneak peek guys, and it's AWESOME!! So many beautiful things in there. I will be working the next couple of days to plan my Open House and some upcoming classes featuring the new goodies. Also planning some tutorial videos for here. I taped several videos, but weren't able to get them uploaded, and now the products I used are retiring. Boo. So, that just means I will re-tape, using new stuff. :o)
Speaking of retiring stuff, you better get them while the gettin's good. Only a couple of days before they are GONE! There's always a couple of retiring sets that I am so sad to see go, but then I know they need to make room for new goodies. One of those sets is the Indescribable Gift set from the Occasions Catalog.
Love this set. The flowers are so pretty. Here I pretty much CASE'd the sample on page 34 of the catalog. Why mess with a good thing, right?
Another set, that I'm really going to miss is Painted Petals. This set is SO versatile! It has quite a few different flowers that can be used in lots of different ways.
Here you can see how I used them to make thank you cards for everyone who placed an order with me a couple of months ago.
And here I just used the sentiments with some pattern paper and punches to make a set of note cards for a fund raiser. Like I said, super versatile set, and I'm very sad to see it going. If you'd like to get your hands on one of these, or any of the other beautiful sets that are retiring, be sure to place your order quick. Also, please use the hostess code above to help support Crafted In His Image, unless your order is over $150--then YOU get the hostess goodies.
So, on another note, how are you doing on our 12 Months of Christmas Challenge? Me, not so good. I've only got 2 months of my cards made, and I still need to better organize the menu section of my notebook. We were pretty busy in March with the kitchen remodel. April and, especially May, were busy with cakes in that newly remodeled kitchen. I guess it's a good thing graduations are over and there's still a few months till Christmas. :o) I will be back later with a little update and challenge for you (and me!).
Till next time...
God's love and blessings!
