Chicks - gifts ~ Weekly Deals ~ New Catalogs

Recently I started volunteering at the Women Refuge Resale Store. (Women's Refuge of Vero Beach)
The Women's Refuge provides a Christ-Centered residential program and community counseling center for people who are serious about getting well.  I felt it was a great cause and wanted to help out.

While there I found these cute hand towels!
When I saw these I knew I had to have them because my sister Carol and Elizabeth my son's girlfriend both raise chickens and I knew they would love these towels.

 I wrapped them in dress patterns!  I love the look.  A friend of mine received a present wrapped in patterned tissue paper and I loved the idea so much I started looking at yard sales for old unused, uncut patterns and this is a flashback of dress styles from ummm I am not sure maybe the 1960's. 

 This is the package when I finished. 

I added this little card, for the chick I punched out from the bird punch and then slipped the punched piece in again and cut the back end of the chick to look more like a chick than a bird.

I hope you liked my fun present as much as Carol & Elizabeth did.

Weekly Deals are here, with lots of favorites.

The new catalog comes out June 2nd and you can order June 5th. I will get a sneak peak this Thursday and I can't wait.  I am in the process of ordering catalogs for the new year, if you ordered $50 or more from me since last June 1, 2014 I will be be purchasing one for you. If you did not and want one let me know by sending me a message and if you are not in my area in the US I will send you a pay pal invoice for 6.00 to cover postage to you or send me a check.  If you live in the Vero Beach area I will have them for you at the end of May.

Thanks for stopping by.

2014-15 Retired List & MDS Retired List

This is an exciting time of the year at Stampin' UP!  We have the 2014-15 retiring list that is good till June 2nd and there are discounts also.  I am sending the pdf so you can open it and I am sending the MDS downloads for those that want to get their favorites before MDS is discontinued.  Let me know if you have any questions.

Hot Diggity Dog -Another Double Slider Card - Update on Butterfly Basic Bundle

 Hot Diggity Dog - I recently bought this cute dog set and today at stamp club we made these slider cards.  I love the name of the card and the images are so cute.   Yes I am on a roll for the slider card technique (thanks Julie Davidson for your video on youtube).  It always gets an ooooh and aaaah when they see it and after they make it and realize how fun it is to make and to give.  My stamp club made this card today and loved it. 

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red
Designer Paper: Stacked wth Love Designer Paper Stack
Accessories: Window Punch, 1-1/4 Circle Punch, Large Oval Punch,  Extra-Large, Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Sticky Strip, Cello Bags, Real Red Cotton Ribbon

UPDATE on Butterfly Basics

Stampin' UP!  hoped that the Butterflies Thinlits Dies would arrive in time for Sale-A-Bration, and when that didn't happen, again like you, we hoped they would be here in time for our Free Shipping promotion. Unfortunately, that is not going to be the case.

Originally they were scheduled to arrive by April 8; we then received notification from our supplier that although the ship had reached the west coast port, the container containing the Thinlits was still on the ship. We have since received verification from a third party that the vessel is still in the port--and though it docked on Friday, April 3, the container with the Thinlits has yet to be pulled.

Because the container has yet to be discharged from the vessel, the soonest the Butterflies Thinlits will arrive in our warehouse is the beginning of the week of April 13; our best estimate for orderability, based on this information, is April 15.

We realize you and your customers may be disappointed you were not able to purchase the Thinlits in time to receive Sale-A-Bration rewards--especially in the discounted bundles. Therefore, from the day Butterflies Thinlits are again available through April 30, we are bringing you two special offers:

Get the Butterflies Thinlits at a 15 percent discount--just $21.20!
Buy any of the Butterflies Thinlits Bundles at the already-discounted price and choose one of three FREE Sale-A-Bration items (only available while supplies last)!
