Oh I am excited!

They have arrived!

I had to modify the foam to accommodate my scissors. And two of the daubers had to leave the case because they don't fit into the handle of my scissors like hers.

... and she engraves them!!!

The pick your tool insert comes in an acetate card holder box but I put it into a stamp case so that it matched everything else on my shelves.

I watched Barrys video on Mitosu Crafts ... Had to CASE it

Barrys Video

I do not have the die he used for the vase though, so I have to figure out something else.
It sits nice on top of a soda bottle. 😄

Daisy Delight stamped with Highland Heather, Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight.
1/2" circle punch for the centers. Of course the Daisy Punch.
Butterfly Beauty Dies with Black, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze Cardstock and the bones are Garden Green.
I had to modify the top butterfly and give it legs.

My orchid

J from Beaver Meadows greenhouse gave me a leaf from one of their huge plants. Someone had knocked it.

It took a couple of years before it looked ok.

Then another year for it to bloom for the first time.

5 years later I got 2 blooms.

April 3rd.

April 14th I was so excited

April 23rd WOW So pretty!

Beginner, Casual and Avid

The first card is super simple no layers. It's made on whisper white thick cardstock the image is stamped in Memento ink and colored with watercolor pencils.
The second card is stamped and colored the same. It has a crumb cake base and Old Olive mat. The Third also stamped and colored the same but has a crumb cake and Old Olive matte on a thick whisper white base. It also has linen thread tied on it. Stitched rectangle dies cut the three layers.

Thanks for looking

Get over the crying...

Ha ha I went over the retiring list.... so sad! I can not believe Lovely As A Tree is retiring!

The BIG SHOT is not going be to ofered by Stampin' Up! They will still offer Dies and Emboosing Folder, a new Machine will be announced later.

The Paper Trimmer is also being discontinued too. That makes me very sad!

I moved my stamps down from the CURRENT shelf to either the RETIRED, BUT IT STAYS HERE shelf or into the GONNA SELL IT box. LOL

I went from having 52 current stamp sets (and no more room at that shelf for more) to 14 remaining. Tissue box is all empty now, so on to happier thinking. Well, not so happy for the wallet! haha

I wrote down what I have left and  made up a plan of how I will use them for workshops, before I buy new sets formt eh next catalog. My Resolution you might say.

I will need a few embellishments and ribbons fromt eh new catty, but no new stamps.... not yet!

I will be searching SCS Galleries and Pinterest for ideas using these reamining 14 sets.

Beautiful Promanade and Beautiful Layers Dies (I will miss the DSP)
Best Catch and Catch of the Day Dies
Daisy Delight and Punch (but I really want the new one that cordinates too)
Gallery Grunge, so happy this stayed, it can be used as backgrounds for almost all of what I have left.
Geared Up Garage and Garage Gears Dies (OMG and the embellishmenst will be in the catty again!)
Let It Ride
Painted Harvest (so happy)
Peaceful Place
Rooted In Nature and Natures Roots Dies
Tea Togeter and Tea Time Dies
Winter Woods and In The Woods Dies

Usually I do my workshops using 3 sets, three different cards and rarely do I use more than one set on a project. This year I wanna use Gallery Grunge more, and I was thinking about PRODUCT based workshops. Using only one set on 3 different projects.

Or workshops using the SIMPLE, STEPPED UP and ADVANCED idea.

oh the descions ....
