Today I thought that I would show you some comparisons in the NEW Stampin' Up! products vs. the old.
You may have noticed that the Basic Pearls and Basic Rhinestones were on the retiring list.  Never fear - all they did was restructure them.
They eliminated the itty bitty size pearls (top left of the old style)
The NEW restructured ones are on the left.  You can see the difference that they eliminated the ones that are connected. There are also less of the largest size. Price is still the same at $5.00.
Here is another comparison...
We have a NEW size of Stampin' Dimensionals!! WOOT WOOT!!  The standard size is on the right and the new additional size are MINI Stampin' Dimensionals.
Here is a closer look; I love having the choice of 2 sizes. How many times do you have a small area that only needs a small dimensional and you have to cut your standard Dimensional?  We have had this mini size Stampin' Dimensional in our Paper Pumpkin Kits and loved them so much that they decided to add them to the catalog!!
Check out this new stamp set: COFFEE CAFE`!  This fun set comes alone or as a BUNDLE in which you save 10% off the price.  
Didn't we used to have a coffee take out cup before?  Sure did! It was called Perfect Blend.  You can see the difference in the sizes of the cups below
The new size is on the left.  I made it super simple with the products I had up stairs, but I can't wait to get going on some fun card ideas using this set. Surgery recovery has sure set me back in my Stamping.
Notice all the cool Framelits with the new set.  Amazing, right?! It even has a dome shape for your whip cream (and so much more), oh, yeah, and a whip cream stamp AND Framelit!!  Watch out!! more great ideas will be on the way.
I know the image is a bit fuzzy so go ahead and click HERE to see it in my on line store.  You will also see the amazing coordinating Designer Paper, and here are some fun products made by Stampin' Up! using the entire coffee suite.

Sentimental Sunday

Sunday, June 25, 2017
For my Sentimental Sunday post for today I wanted to brag a bit on our grand daughter, Gracie.
Gracie had her dance recital last week Saturday and she sure did an amazing job
The first dance of the recital was Gracie's duet with her teacher.  They danced to the song SKYSCRAPER by Demi Lovato. 
The second song she danced was called 
 The last number she was in was her Jazz routine.  This was Gracie's first year to take Jazz.
She went through 3 costume changes and 3 hairstyles
At the very end they brought out all of the ages and levels and they got to "dance around." Gracie was just waiting for the end of the song so she could strike this pose...what a ham!!

Cards from Friends

Saturday, June 24, 2017
This past week I received not one, but 2 thoughtful cards from my PenPal Becky

Becky used the BEAUTIFUL YOU stamp set.  I cannot wait until I can be standing free like that!! Only 12 more days until I can start adding weight and then gradually work on walking without help of the crutches.  As much as I hate my bulky tennis shoes, I really cannot wait to take short walks AND getting back downstairs to my craft room.
The Lord is with you! What a great reminder and comfort!
Thank you my dear friend!

Waite Violin Studio

Thursday, June 22, 2017
Our Daughter In Law, Jessica, is very musical and has held violin lessons for many years.  How great it is when I get to watch the kids during one of her lessons each week.  We get to hear the violins playing through the vents and each time the kids turn to the music and smile.
Two weeks ago was her end of year recital for her students.  I was really wishing that I would be able to attend, but because of the team meeting I had to skip it.  Next best thing, I made some violin themed cards and a scrapbook page for her.
Thanks to my friend who has a Cricut machine and the violin cartridge that I could cut some out in a variety of sizes for these projects.
Jess just loves music related cards and it made me very happy to make these for her.

I forgot to take photos before giving them to her so she was kind enough to send these to me!
Here is a photo of Jessica and her students
About 3 times a year I hold a scrapbooking day.  I have a nice large crafting room and we would love to have you join us.  The cost is FREE and we just all bring some food to share throughout the day. Generally the hours for this class is 9:00 am until 6:00 pm. If you cannot stay that long, no problem! The next scrapbooking day will be held Saturday, August 19th.  Please RSVP by contacting me HERE .
Have you checked out the NEW scrapbooking supplies from Stampin' UP!? Stampin' Up! is partnering with Memories and More.  There are Albums, Photo Pocket Pages, and More.  You can check it all out by clicking HERE and place your order on line.

Guest Demonstrator

Tuesday, June 20, 2017
Dawn T was our Guest Demonstrator at our Team Meeting.
The technique that she used, she called Reverse Masking.
I love the outcome of the cards we all made
She brought up my Dragonfly Dies as well as my Butterfly Dies and we call could choose what we wanted on out card.
Before we attached the Copper Foil to our Island Indigo card base we cut our dragonfly or butterfly from the center of it.  This was you are saving on your product that will not be seen. Especially the foil papers because those are more expensive.

I love them all! Which one is your favorite?
The ink colors she used are Soft Sky, Marina Mist and Island Indigo.
The circle measures 2 3/4".
