From My Heart

Wow, sorry I didn’t get to post yesterday but I spent the day with my daughter touring KSU so she could make a final decision about which college she wants to attend.  The traffic was awful to get there, but the campus seemed lovely. Not sure that this has helped her since now she has to make a decision again. I’m trying real hard to stay neutral as she decides what is best for her future.

So what does this have to do with stamping? Well all of this had made me think of my old friends from school and when I see a tea pot I think of my old high school friend, Margie, and all the good times we had together over tea. So the image in the From My Heart Stamp Set makes me think of my friend and smile.  I love both the images and sayings in this set. How about you? I think they’re all great and work wonderfully with our Framelits.

From My Heart swap

Here is a great card that I received in a swap using the From My Heart set. I really like the way that Susan used the Comfort Café’ Designer Series Paper with this image. And can you see the shimmer around the image? It’s been sponged with our Frost White Shimmer Paint (item 116854) and then again around the edges with Midnight Muse.

Retirement Image-001

Just a reminder that tomorrow is the last day to send in your guess for the retirement top 10 contest. It’s just for fun and there will be a prize for the winner who guesses the most stamp sets correctly!

Want to play?  Here’s how.

  • Look through the 2012-2013 Catalog
  • Make your list of 10 stamp sets you think will retire
  • Add one more stamp set you think will retire in case I need a tie breaker (for a total of 11)
  • Email your list to [email protected] subject line Retirement Party Contest
  • Include your name, address, and phone number (I’ll need these if you’re the winner so I can get your prize to you.)
  • Email me your list by 9 pm on Friday, April 19th

If by off chance the list is leaked early, then the contest is off. Remember, all Hostess sets retire so don’t include them in your list since they won’t count. Everyone is welcome to play; however, fellow Demonstrators won’t be included for the prize.

Want to join in more Retirement Party fun? Watch for more Party information and Giveaways coming your way soon.

This too shall Pass….

Have you been saying this to yourself a lot lately? I know I have, after all I have a teenager daughter, so when I saw the stamp set From My Heart I knew it was one I wanted to put on my shopping list. I just think that the sentiments in the From My Heart stamp set are lovely and I love the images, so I was ticked when my friend Joann gave me this card during a swap last week.

The color combination she used of Summer Starfruit and Gumball green look very striking together, don’t you think?  You’ve got to love the way all of Stampin’ Up! products work together? I know I do – it was one of the things that drew me to Stampin’ Up!

Why not check out the From My Heart stamp set in our 2012-2013 Catalog – I think you’re going to like it as much as I do.
