This bird is flying away on 5/22..and no more mint





This stamp set, Builder Birdcage by Stampin' Up was on the MUST.HAVE.IT slot on my list when the Occasions catalog cam out. Sadly, after the 22nd of May, it will no longer be guaranteed to be available. The Occasions Catalog is retiring at the end of May, but stamps will only be made until 5/22, then they will be while supplies last.  Then after 5/31, it's gone! 





speaking of retiring.......





Here is a swap from our team gathering, by the talented Pretties team crafter Audra Jones:






I can not believe there is still any Mint Macaron cardstock and ink left, but there is! Snatch it up before it's gone!

Say goodbye to the curvy keepsake! It's truly a keepsake


Each year, Stampin' Up adds gorgeous new products to the catalog for us to purchase and use in our crafting. But, that means, each year, there are some items that have to go. This may be the most loved framelit for the Bigshot we have ever sold. I am in denial that it will be gone, but right now, it is available while supplies last. It's the Curvy Keepsake framelit. If you don't have it, get it or you'll be the dork searching for it for jillions on Ebay! 

I made a gaggle of these for my most recent Saleabration Celebration party for my honored team and customers. It's a total spoil-fest. 


Here's the cutie up close and personal. Do you spy a new stamp? Wood Words (pictured above)
Are you wondering how I made that gingham paper? I got the idea from Erica Cerwin using the Thoughtful Banner stamp set. Click here to see how.

Also, these cute buttons are retiring and are while supplies last!

Llama, Llama, say goodbye-a!


It's the end of the catalog season for our 2016-2017 Stampin' Up Annual Catalog. The catalog ends 5/31, so you know what that means....We have to snatch up the stamp sets that will no longer be with us.  I was so excited to use this Birthday Fiesta stamp set for this cute card. He is the perfect stamp for my On Stage Shreveport swaps. Elizabeth Hart and I bought this set for our birthdays and I asked for my custody share for making swaps :)

This card was inspired by Susan Horr at http://susanstamps.wordpress.com.  I liked the way she used framelits to cut out the crumb cake llama, avoiding watercoloring it!  I was making swaps, and y'all... I can't watercolor a jillion swaps! I also added a cute "blanket" on his back from the Festive Birthday designer series paper. TIP: Stamp just that area-ish from the stamp onto the designer paper, then cut just inside the stamped line and it'lll fit perfectly. 

Make your list now of the stamps that you can't live without and ORDER NOW, so thay you can get all the cute, coordinating products before they sell out!  (Stamp sets will be made if ordered by 5/22), but other items are only while supplies last!

OnStage 2017 Shreveport Recap


I just returned from Shreveport where 18 ladies and I traveled to see the gorgeous new Stampin' Up 2017-2018 Annual Catalog!  So much happens on such a jam packed weekend. Hop on for a wild ride! 

My first official activity was to be pampered and spoiled at Center Stage. This is a special dinner for those at Silver Elite title and up. We were treated like royalty and I was thrilled to sit with my bestie Erica Cerwin and my new friend Tracey Thompson who I met a few months back.


As usual, we had amazing food......but we only snapped a photo of the dessert


And the night was made totally wonderful when we received a new stamp set (Hooray!) and a specially designed Stampin' Up apron! Oh......and a the new 2-17-2018 Annual Catalog. Sorry, strict gag order not to show anything except the cover!


Meanwhile.......back at the hotel, my original downline Elizabeth Mayfield Hart organized a fab shoebox swap for the team entitled "We Are all Wonder Women". I'm not how I deserve this Virgo sister, heart of gold, encouraging gift giver in my life, but I am so glad she is. As one of my team leaders, I asked her to organize this simple shoebox swap. Well, the Pretties don't really do "simple". HA! As usual, she knocked this one out of the ballpark. She organized it and Patience, Virginia provided fab treats and Lazendra fashioned a Wonder Woman logo for the capes!  supplied FAB treats for the event also. She spared no details and we all had a blast!





Door prizes of course!  


more sweets, my favorite :) Thanks Wonder Woman


  Happy Stampers


And of course Elizabeth made us all capes to wear! WOW! 


This was all just a warm up to the big day we had next!  As you can see, it's so much more than ink, stamps and paper.  We made some cute cards too! 
Then we rested up for the marathon 8-5pm stamptastic day of On Stage festivities. 

With my team and friends we totaled 18 fantastic stampers! WOW! How blessed can I be?


I can't show you much yet, but right off the bat there were prize winners!  PRIZE PATROL!!!! I hate that Elizabeth wasn't excited about her prize. 


I could not be more thrilled to spend the weekend with Lana Dunn and my sister. These two are my rock and foundation. Does this girl below look like she has metastatic breast cancer? Nope, but GOD! that she is here with me. Thank you for every minute we spend together! 



After the festivities and a short break, we headed on over to the Stampin' Social hosted by me and my bestie Erica Cerwin. I am so blessed that we are friends, we met through stamping and we bonded at Founder's Circle and we throw some pretty fab events (aside from encouraging each other and texting multiple times per week!)


WE figured folks would be hungry for some sweet treats........



What a fantastic group of ladies we had (with her permission, I horked Erica's picture :)


We even had some VIP's, Shannon West and Darcy from Stampin' Up! WOW! I'm starstruck!


I'm not sure anyone parties like the Pretties! 
We can sleep when we're dead! 

Want to see the new catalog NOW?
Want to be a part of the fun?
