It's here....the SU Retired list....hurry before they are gone!!

Retiring Products


Well, we have been waiting and waiting and just a little after Noon, PDT, the list was posted, on the SU website.

To make it easy, you can click HERE to go to my online store at my website and view the retiring items.  Some items have been discounted from 15% to 50% off.

Here is a copy of the PDF if you would like to print it out.  You can enlarge it to make it bigger and if you check back, from time to time, SU tries to keep it up to date so you will know when something sells out.

If you really want/need something be sure to order soon as items run out FAST...especially the retiring In Color Re-inkers and related products.

Have fun and it isn't long before the new catalog comes out!

Hugs,
Char

Goodbye Weekly Deals

Goodbye Weekly Deals: Stampin Up announced Tuesday morning that they will be phasing out the "Weekly Deals" on April 18. 

From SU:

Weekly Deals began to help reduce overstocked inventory. As we've reduced excess inventory, the variety of products available for Weekly Deals has decreased, making the deals less exciting, so we're replacing Weekly Deals with a less frequent but better promotion called Special Offers. These Special Offers will occur every few months as inventory allows (the goal is still to reduce overstocked inventory) with more products and discount tiers than Weekly Deals

This week, they are having a Mega sale.  Fifteen products on sale.

Next week, April 12th, there will be one more Weekly Deals special and then they will be gone, forever!!

PLUS!!!  They have updated the clearance rack...there are some really good specials on some of the retired holiday items.  The glitter ribbon for one....oh my gosh...it was $10 and now it's $4!!

The retired list will be coming out in the next two weeks.  I am looking forward to the new Annual Catalog....but am always sad to see some of my favorites being retired.  

Then, in May, as a demonstrator, I will get to pre-order select items from the new annual catalog.  EXCITING!!

Have a great day....and hope you find time to Paws N Stamp!!

Hugs,
Char

Spring Card

Ok, it says Happy Easter but I wasn't able to get them out during Easter.  So, I changed the saying to "Sending Springtime Smiles" from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set.

Basically, I used an oval framelit to cut the 'egg' hole and then ran it through the  Big Shot using the Large Polka Dot embossing folder.

On another layer, behind the egg, I used the "swoosh" stamp from the Work of Art stamp set.

Then, added some flowers using the Petite Petals punch and leaves using the branch from the Bird Builder punch.  Added the sentiment and DONE!!  Whoops, forgot the little center....I added the fun "It's my Party Enamel Dots" in the Occassions catalog.

Tomorrow, I'll show you another card using this basic idea!

Here are the supplies I used for this card.

Today is the last day of Sale-A-Bration and card share

Just a reminder

Today is the last day to order during Sale-a-Bration to qualify for Free SAB products. 

It's true, I can hardly believe it, but Sale-a-Bration is almost over. :-(
I hope you were able to get all the free goodies  you wanted.  

But, if not, you still have all day today and you can shop at my online store.

Be sure to check out the Weekly deals and also the Clearance Rack, while you are there.  You never know what you may find there.

 I know I have been MIA for months and only jumping online now and again for updates.

Most of you know that I severely broke my right wrist a week before Christmas and had to have major surgery and a boatload of hardware placed inside my wrist to keep it together.  It's been a long uphill battle to get to where I am today.  But, the good news is they were able to get my wrist to work well enough so that I can type and STAMP....my two favorite things to do.  :-)
My Doctor told me again that it was one of the worst breaks she'd seen.  She looked me square in the eyes and said, "Don't break it again (this was my second time in 15 years) or we won't be able to put Humpty Dumpty back together again.  

Ok, now, I had to chuckle...because this was the second time this week I had been called Humpty Dumpty AND it wasn't like I had nothing better to do that day but throw myself down on a hard sidewalk one week before Christmas......lol

Anyway, I have a LOT of catching up to do.

I wanted to share a very cool card with you that my wonderful friend, Pat, made to show me how she used the SU Balloon Celebration Bundle, from the Occasions catalog on page 12.  I told her I just had to share it on my blog...although I don't have the directions to show you how to make it, myself  :-(





Now, I do know that she used the Action Wobble Springs behind the balloons to give them a 3D look and you can purchase them at Amazon.

The pop out was done with her Cricut.  

Here are some of the items she used.

Back again!! and New Sale A Bration items

Good Morning,

This is my first blog post since breaking my wrist on December 17th and letting everyone know what happened.  Almost 2 months to the day.....but I have therapy tomorrow, so decided I had better get a post out, today.

I want to thank my upline, Jan Farring, for making a few cards and also updating my blog for me, to take it through the past month so that I didn't have that to worry about.  

And, I also want to thank Rita Holmes, my friend and also a SU demonstrator that stepped up and made 8 cards for me so that there would be something on my blog to share.

Now, it's back to me.  I can't say that there will be something here every day but I will try my hardest to keep you up to date and share when I make something.

I have gotten a lot of Get Well cards, and plan to share those, even if they weren't made with SU stamps....as I was so grateful to those that sent cards and helped  me get through the past two months.

I am typing on my keyboard but it's slow going and I make mistakes and don't always catch them, so be patient.  I am just excited that I can now type again even though it's a little stiff feeling.  GOOD THERAPY!!! lol

So, I will start off sharing cards I received from Jan and Rita, first.  I thought it was so cool that they both chose dragonflies even though they don't even know each other :-)

Here is the one sent by Rita:

 And, here is the one sent by Jan.
Thank you both so much for keeping me sane these past couple of months.

And, if you have made it this far, I wanted to let you know that the NEW Sale A Bration items are out.  There were a few items that were only available till Feb. 16th and then new ones were introduced.

Here they are:

SU Sale A Bration 2nd release

Hope that link works.  Can't wait to get my hands on some of that glitter tape.

Have a fantastic day!!

Hugs,
Char
