Don’t have REGRETS! Take My Advice now…

Posted April 21, 2015 By myblog
 “Hey the retiring list is here. Here it is. You better buy what you want NOW, because it’s going to be GONE.”
PLEASE DON’T BE THAT PERSON!
That Person that ends up not getting what she wanted and feeling frustrated and annoyed because she didn’t order the minute the retiring list came out.
That Person that is left with REGRETS.
 Here it is.
 April 21, 2015

It’s that time of year when we say goodbye to these amazing products from the current (2014-2015) annual catalog,

we’re giving everyone an opportunity to order retiring products

(some at discounts prices up to 50 percent off retail)

before they’re GONE for good.

Retiring products are while supplies last, so be sure to get your orders in early!

 Hint: check the retiring accessories 1st. Start from the bottom of the list & work to the top!

goodbye

 

Every single year it’s the same old story.
 
I get the “Oh- ok.”
 
One week LATER.
 
Ring… ring….
 
Me: “Hello”
Person: “Hey, I wanted to get the retiring in color stamp pads and I can’t put it in on the order online.  It says product is discontinued.”
Me: “Because they are sold out”
​Moving the  phone away from my ear!
Person: “ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? What? It’s only been on the list a week”
Me: “Nope.  I am not kidding you.  THIS IS WHY I TOLD YOU to order the stuff you wanted RIGHT AWAY.  IT sells out”
​Person: “I thought you were just saying that to get me to buy stuff.”
Me: “Nope. I really was looking out for you.”
Person: “**@?$&#**.  Now what?”
Me: “I dunno.  When it’s gone, it’s gone.  I’m sorry.  You can see if you can buy it on eBay for 5 times the price you would’ve paid last week”
Order right away and make sure you get what you want.  

You will regret it later if you don’t.

Swallowtails, Shadow Boxes, and Sharing

Posted March 23, 2015 By myblog

It’s no secret, I luv 2 ‪#‎craft‬.

I’ve been wanting to make a #‎shadow‬ box using the #‎swallowtail‬ stamp for some time now. Having a dear friend who is having surgery tmw & who also admires butterflies, gave me a good reason to go ahead & bring it to fruition.

So, I headed to Pinterest for inspiration & this is what I came up with.

butterfly shadow box

I ended up using some retired product & a stamp from the #February Paper Pumkin along with current product for this project.

I luv the way it turned out!

Here is the current products I used on this project:

Speaking of retiring, I want to give you all a heads up that My Digital Studio is retiring as well.

Another February Paper Pumpkin Share

Posted March 7, 2015 By myblog

 

Did I mentioned that I totally liked the February Paper Pumpkin (PP) kit?!!!

Have you seen it or the video yet?

If you haven’t, what are you waiting for?

These kits are fun & awesome just the like they are!

You can see it HERE!

But, there is always left overs & extras!

I <3 that!

Here is one of the EXTRA projects I made with some left over pieces 🙂

click on card to see a larger image February PP2

Isn’t this a fun, bright & cheerful Card?

And, it is a big Card.

The base is a full sheet of 8 1/2 x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″

Coastal Cabana

Beside the PP kit,

I used a Hostess Stamp Set and, since it is Sale A Bration (SAB), I also used some FREE products that I earned.

The front panel is 8 1/4 x 5 1/4″

Best Year Ever (SAB) Designer Paper.

Go ahead & adhere the front panel to the base with the Fast Fuse.

The Felt THANKS is the negative portion of the Die Cut pieces from the February PP kit.

Feb PP kit1Feb PP kit2

Each Felt panel has 2 THANKS on it.

You will have to cut the 2 in half & trim accordingly.

The piece will be approximately 7 1/8 x 2 3/8″

You will need to cut another piece of the Best Year Ever Designer Paper just a tad smaller.

Then apply Fast Fuse on the back of the Felt THANKS & adhere the Designer Paper to it.

I cut the fringe piece with the Fringe Scissors

Crisp Cantalope

It measures 7 1/8 x 1 1/4″

I cut the SAB Best Year Ever Coastal Cabana Ribbon at 8″

and adhered it on the back side of the fringe piece with a tad of Fast Fuse.

Be sure not to pull it too tight, you don’t want it to buckle the fringe piece.

Now run a strip of Fast Fuse along the back side & bottom of the THANKS piece

and adhere the fringe piece with the ribbon on it.

The Whisper White Panel is 1 3/4 x 3 1/2″

Stamp the image from the Bloom with Hope Hostess Stamp Set with the Staz On ink,

then color it in with the Coastal Cabana ink & Old Olive inks using the Aqua Painter.

You can control the color by adjustig how much ink & water you use.

Don’t get your paper too wet all at once.

Let it dry in between applications of color until you get the desired shading you like.

All that’s left is to stamp the sentiment from the February PP kit in the upper right corner & Fast Fuse all of the other pieces in place.

I used the Multipurpose glue for the Bermuda Bay Sequins.

I also cut a piece of Whisper White CS the same size as the front panel to put inside of the card.

Here is all the supplies I used on this project, except the February PP kit.

Hopefully it will become available next month.

The kit may no longer be available!

That is the risk of not having a subscription.

More details below the supply list!
