It's Baby Season!

I realized I have a few friends expecting their first child, so I offered my custom card-making services to them. I told them I'd post a sample of announcements. The stamps I used are retired (I think they're from 1999) but I thought they're too cute. Plus, the Designer Series Paper add a freshness to these old stamps.

Playing with Paper

I have several samples of the Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper from a couple paper shares and thought I should start using them. I wasn't comfortable at first because I didn't want to waste the paper if I made a mistake. I think the Pink Flamingo (first image) is fun and hope to use more of it.

Ready for Easter? Occasions Mini Sneak Peak

The Easter Bunny has come early and has provided you with a sneak peak of the Occasions Mini Catalog. If you're not familiar, Stampin' Up! issues a quarterly mini catalog with seasonal items. The full mini catalog, which will have Springy items (Easter, Mother and Father's Day, general summer) won't be available until April 1, but if you've got that Easter itch, you can check out the Easter stamp sets by going to and click on PROMOTIONS.

Start your Easter season off right and get your Easter sets today!
