Talk about dazzling! Did anyone else start singing that 80's classic, The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades when they saw this? Maybe there should be a warning on the envelope: Contents BRIGHT! Open at your own risk!
I'm still patiently - or maybe impatiently - waiting for my new products to arrive. I really thought they'd be here yesterday. But in the meantime, the extra time waiting for UPS means I'm rediscovering stamp sets that I haven't used in a while, like Pocketful of Sunshine. I don't think I've used this since last May!
The Pocketful of Sunshine is just one of this spring's retiring bundles that are carrying over separately. What does that mean? Right now, bundles save you 10% off the catalog price. But starting in June, the following bundles will be split apart, with no additional savings.
Here's the list of the current bundles which will be split apart in June. Order now to save 10%. Remember to use April's Host Code V6CH6PKM. All orders of $50 or more will receive 1 FREE Sale-a-Bration item of their choice from my collection.

It was spring cleaning weekend in the studio and boy did it need it! It really was a disaster zone; I couldn't stand to be in it. Unfortunately, I was so exhausted after retreat that I didn't put things away properly when I got home. The Montessori teacher in me should know better! Then...I had a club to prep, swaps for OnStage, and a class and team meeting to attend to. This was the first weekend in a long time that I didn't have anything scheduled or planned. So, my studio got the full attention it deserved. It feels so much better; I actually made 3 cards last night rather quickly because it was clean and everything was exactly where it needed to be.
In addition to cleaning, I also pulled ALL retiring product off my shelves. That was a BIG chore, too. And while I'm sad to see most of it go, I am excited for what's coming next! My UPS man should be bringing me my box of pre-order goodies today or tomorrow. I can't wait to show you what's inside!
The worst part of clearing all the retiring products of my shelves is the paper. Oh, how I love pretty paper. I just had to give this Delightful Daisy pattern one last go. It is almost ALL GONE! Better get some before it's too late.

Today, I grabbed the pack of Petal Passion Memories and More cards that I've been 'saving' for that just right occasion. It's been on the top of my crafting 'to do list' for months and I suddenly realized...it's RETIRING!!! OH NO!!! Time to use it up before it's too late.

I can't believe it did it! I actually cut up that big, gorgeous full panel sheet from the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper pack. I'm pretty sure my neighbors heard me gasp out loud as the paper trimmer sliced right through it. I would have closed my eyes, too, if I wasn't afraid of slicing off a finger! But then...look how it turned out! Pretty darn amazing if you ask me. and you know what? Cutting that paper didn't hurt! I survived...and it made a very fast, Sweet & Simple card. Just a few layers and one stamp and Voila! instant birthday card.

Dapper Denim. Island Indigo. Soft Sky. What do they all have in common? Other than being 3 of my favorite blues? They're all retiring! Sad, but true. So, I thought it was only fitting to do a Sweet & Simple card featuring all three together.
