Graduation 2018

How the year is flying!!  Prom, Graduations, Weddings, Father’s Day & Babies events are all coming up and cards are all a wonderful part of those traditions. 
My first big events this spring are Graduations.  I have 2 nieces who are graduating from High School this spring and have gotten into the Universities of their choices, as well as many other children of friends who are also graduating.  I am so proud and excited for them. 

 I created this special Graduation card for them using the Amazing Congratulations stamp set.  Those who attended a workshop with me last month will be familiar with it.  I created a pocket on the side for a gift card or check.  My fellow Stampin’ Up demonstrators will forgive me, I used a retired set to create the “mortarboard".  I made the tassel from some silver cord. 


Apologies!  I will be taking another break in May from holding workshops.  I may not be able to get one scheduled in June in time for Father’s Day, but I will try. 

Upcoming Events:  I am proud to say that in June I am will begin a series of workshops aimed at techniques.  Some will be very basic so that crafters that are not familiar with Stamping can learn some simple but exiting techniques.  Details will be posted in an upcoming workshop invitation.  I will be trying to keep my days more consistent.  If they don’t fit into your schedule, call me and we can have our own private session.

Big News!  Our new Annual Catalog and Idea book becomes available to purchase from on June 1st!!!  Each year we retire bunches of old stamps sets and accessories and bring in lots of new ones and ideas to go along.  If you would like a printed copy, just let me know, I will have a stack on hand shortly. 

In the meantime… the retiring products in the the 2017 -2018 Annual Catalog and the Occasions/Spring catalog will not be available after June 1st and remaining supplies are limited the list of retiring products and catalogs.
