Simple Easter Treat Holder

Since Easter is quickly approaching, I want to share a simple Easter Treat Holder that you can make last minute.  This is the final project from this month’s class.  Don’t you think it’s perfect to highlight the bunny’s face on the Hershey’s Easter Candy?  What’s great about the project is you can easily alter it to hold any small, flat candy bar.   

Simple Easy Treat Holder

The treat holders feature the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper.  Use the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack to embellish with flowers.  Below are details on recreating the project.

Project Materials:
  • Granny Apple Green Cardstock: 9-1/2″ x 2″ score at 4-1/2″ & 5″ and one piece 3-1/2″ x 1″ score at 1/4″ on each side then cut in half at 1-3/4″ so you will have 2 pieces 1-3/4″ x 1″ 
  • Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper: 1-7/8″ x 4-3/8″ 
  • Cardstock to match Designer Series Paper: 2″ x 3″ 
  • Scraps of Whisper White for sentiment and desired colors to punch small flower embellishments.  The colors used above are Berry Burst, Blueberry Bushel, Daffodil Delight & Grapefruit Grove.
  • Detailed Trio Punch
  • Best Bunny Photopolymer Stamp Set for Surprise! sentiment
  • Itty Bitty Greetings Clear Mount Stamp Set for Easter Greetings sentiment
  • Layering Ovals Framelits Dies (counting from smallest die to largest the following dies are used: 1, 3, & 4 
  • Classic Label Punch for Easter Greetings Sentiment

Time to Say Good Bye

Stampin’ Up! released the retiring list today and it’s time to say Good Bye to retiring favorites.  To see the list of items, click here.  Be sure to act quickly as items are available while supplies last.  Items such as the retiring In-Colors and ink refills are usually the first items that sell out.  It’s a great time to order retiring embellishments too.  A long time favorite stamp set is also retiring –  Lovely As A Tree.  If you don’t have this classic stamp set, you’ll want to be sure to add it to your collection.  

But as all things come to an end, new will be coming our way on June 4th.  While at conference this weekend, I received the catalog early and WOW – love the new products.  Over the next few weeks, I’ll share some of the products that demonstrators attending were able to order early.  Below is the catalog…notice all the pages that I have flagged?! Told you I love the new products and look forward to the date that I can order more items from the catalog.   

Be sure to follow me on Facebook and watch my Facebook Live this week.  I will be demonstrating a quick and easy Easter Treat project.  

Thanks for stopping by today!

Year-End Savings

If you are like me then you are going to be very excited about the year-end savings.  It’s a time to take advantage of some retiring products and a few select ones from the annual catalog.  You can save on a selection of retiring products and surplus items. They will only be WHILE SUPPLIES LAST so make sure to shop my online store early to ensure you get your favorites.

There is also a flyer (which you can download below) for the year-end savings that you can download and keep handy.  This way you know what is on sale during this event.  But remember, all the products are while supplies last.  I know I always carry around my lists so I’m always prepared when I shop away from home.  You can always check my online store for the most updated information.WIth our bundles, remember they only last during the catalog time and when the products are first introduced. After that catalog’s period of time is over, the products might carry over but the bundle pricing does not. If you have any questions about this special year-end savings, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Retiring Products Are Here

The Retiring Products have been announced.  The Retired List’s for the 2017-2018 annual catalog are now available.  Although I’m sad to see so many great products leave us, the new catalog will be live on June 1st with a bunch of brand new products to add to your collection.  You can view the list below or in my online store and take a look at all that is available.  Make sure to check for all your favorites.  The stamp sets will be available through May 25th, after that they will all be while supplies last. 

The accessories are only while supplies last. Most of the retiring colors will probably go fast.  I suggest getting any refills you would like for your current colors.  Also make sure to check the Clearance Rack and take advantage of those deals as well.  It’s great when you can stock up for less. There are two lists.  One is for the Annual catalog and one is for the Occasions catalog, so check both lists.

You can click the flyers above or visit my online store to see all the retiring products.  Make sure to act fast because products sell out fast and most of them are on a first come first serve basis.  Stampin’ Up! keeps the list updated each day so you always know if the products have sold out.  The end of the month is coming soon and remember, June 1st is the release of the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  The  Stamparatus will be released in the new catalog so if you were not able to get it during the pre order a few months ago, you can get it once the new catalog goes live.  If you have any questions about the Retiring Products or the new catalog release, please don’t hesitate to contact me.  I am happy to answer any questions.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
