Love Sparkles Scrapbook Layout

I recently took part in an Iron Stamper's Challenge in which each participant was given a Stampin' Up! Simply Scrappin' kit and the task of creating 5 projects with it, including a scrapbook layout, a 5 minute card, a more advanced card, a 3-D item and an altered item. The kit I received was "Love Sparkles"(item 113918), which has a great coordinated selection of designer paper, cardstock and a ton of self-adhesive die cuts. This is the scrapbook layout I came up with; I took these photos of my friend's adorable daughter during spring break when my husband and I visited them in San Diego. She is such an animated little girl, so I thought they would be a fun set of photos to scrap. I added some punch art tulips in the bottom corner of the page to echo the tulips on her dress, and a few butterfly die cuts for interest.

Thanks for stopping by!

Clean & Simple FTL 87

I stamped this a few weeks ago but am only just getting around to sharing it now. Better late than never, right? I really like this sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping; it is simple, yet versatile. I "custom made" some designer paper by stamping the two flowers from Simple Friendship on the Whisper White piece, and sponged the edges of the Crushed Curry butterfly with Bermuda Bay. This colour combo is fresh, fun and so summery!

Avaliability of the Retiring Stampin' Up! Colours

Hi Stampers,

With Stampin' Up!'s recent announcement about the Colour Renovation they expected an increase in orders for the retiring colour products. The response has been amazing! Everyone wants to be sure to stock up on their favorite old colours. As a result of the overwhelming response a few colors have already sold out or been placed on backorder.

In regards to the Reinkers and card stock orders here's what you need to know...

Reinkers will be available through May 31st. Reinkers may be placed and backordered. Backordered reinkers will be shipped when the supply has been replenished. After June 1st, the reinkers will again be available only as supplies last.

The card stock is a much more difficult process to manufacture. There are not sufficient supplies to fill backorders. As a substitute, Stampin' Up! will fill backorders with textured card stock. Effective today, card stock supplies are as supplies last.

If you want to stock up on retiring colour products (reinkers, card stock, ribbon, buttons, and more.), please place your order asap.

You can order online anytime directly from my Stampin' Up! website.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me!

P.S. The Clearance Rack has just been restocked with new items! Lots of Designer Papers and other goodies to be had at awesome savings, while supplies last!

Cupcake Toppers

I made these little lovelies yesterday for a friend's birthday. As cute as they are on their own, I wanted to dress them up a bit, Stampin' Up!-style, so I whipped up some quick toppers/picks using a few stamps and my trusty Scallop Circle punch. Two benefits: instant increase in the cute factor, and the picks help keep the icing fluffy and intact during transportation.

Have a great Sunday and thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: So Many Scallops (retired), Darling Dots (retired)
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
Ink: Cameo Coral, Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red
Accessories: Scallop Circle Punch, 1 1/4'' Circle Punch, toothpicks
