Positive Thoughts ~ Retirement Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Retirement is a wonderful milestone to reach – the end of one part of our lives and the brand new beginning of the next part so, to a cardcrafter,  the sending of a card in recognition of this momentous event is a must.

The Positive Thoughts Stamp set is turning out to be one of my favorites as you will see over the coming weeks as I share cards made with it. During Sale-a-bration there was a die-set available which I used on my card, I am kinda hoping it might just appear in the new Annual Catalog later this spring……  watch this space!

Never Ending Card ~ Dandelion Wishes Version

Stampin’ UP! also introduced a new stamp set called Itty Bitty Greetings – which is also small and dainty, so naturally would work with the lovely lacy specialty paper – but I didn’t have a punch that complimented the greeting I chose to use (and I have them all!!) so I needed to get a little inventive.

Gift Wrapped Stickynote Page Flags ~ Video

I bet the title of this post threw you  a little, but it was hard to find something that was descriptive!  At the beginning of June I held my launch party for the 2018 – 2019 annual catalog.  I have new product for my dear customers to ooo and aahh over as well as some make and takes but I also like to make a little gift for each as a thank you for coming as well as shopping with me over the year!

This year I found some packets of sticky-note page flags which seemed to me to be absolutely perfect for marking up their new catalog with the goodies that caught their eye!
