Current SAB Updates

I'm ready for the weekend!  Tomorrow we are going to Oshkosh to see Alyssa.  She hasn't been home in several weeks, so we are looking forward to spending some time with her.  We are also going to the EAA's Hops and Props event.  It's actually a beer tasting event that is a huge fundraiser for the EAA.  And, since Alyssa is now of legal age, she wants to come with us.  Her old roommate is also coming.  We figured it would be a better time for her if she had a friend so they could go off on their own.  Regardless, we will have a great time.

The SAB Coordination products have been a huge hit.  I want to list the products that are still orderable.


If you are in love with the cupcake framelits, you might want to order them right away.  The buzz I've been hearing is that they are almost sold out.  So, I wouldn't wait if I were you.  Things have been going very quickly this SAB event.

Now for the most recent sold out news.  The Organdy Ribbon Pack sold out in just over a day.  Wowzers.  I would love to see that ribbon in the Annual Catalog.    Also, the Hop Around Framelits sold out.  They are the framelits for the So Hoppy Stamp set.  The Butterfly Elements and Precious Parcel Card Kit were sold out back in February.  What a sale this has been!

Don't forget about the 3rd Release that has recently been released.  There are some awesome items included.


I know this is a lot of information thrown at you, but if you have any questions, just contact me.  I'm here to help you out.

Until next time...Stampin' Always,

Tasty Thursday - Prosciutto and Pesto Panini

What to have for dinner.  That was a very tough question today.  We couldn't think of anything that sounded good.  I tried to get chicken tenders and potato wedges from the grocery store, but they were actually out of the chicken tenders.  Seriously.  We never plan a diner with these, but the one time when we do...just our luck.  

Onto Plan B.  What to have for dinner.

Surprisingly, I could actually get enough Wi-Fi to access Pinterest.  I've made this panini recipe several times and we all like it.  But with prosciutto, what's not to like.  it's an easy dinner, not a lot of prep needed.  Just what I needed tonight.  Here's the recipe.

Simple Sympathy Card

It's Hump Day!  

It was my day to stay inside all day long.  Yahoo!!  Spent some time in my stamp room getting ready for club next week.  One card done, at least 2 more to go.  I have an idea with the embossing paste, now I just have to get to put my idea on paper.  

One important update...the Organdy Ribbon Combo that I posted yesterday is now again sold out.  Wow.  I didn't think it would be that soon.  No word if we are getting more in so I will keep you posted as I find thing out.

It's never a good time when you need a sympathy card.  Here's a simple sympathy card for you.

The tree is from the Golden Afternoon Stamp Set.  The base is Very Vanilla with Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake.  Super simple color pallette.

I'm sitting here looking at this picture and I always think how it could be changed and made better.  To keep the color pallette even more simple, it would have been fun to stamp and emboss the birds with clear embossing powder.  Hmmm.

So, this is all I have for today.  Sorry, but I haven't been feeling well, and it's been wearing me down.  Time for bed.

You are Amazing

Happy Frigid Monday.  Again.

Seriously, Spring just doesn't want to come this year.  Maybe by June things will warm up a bit.  

First some good news.  The Organdy Ribbon Combo is back in stock!!  It's in the SAB catalog, FREE with a $50 purchase.  It's been super popular so if you are interested, I wouldn't wait too long.  People have been waiting for this to come back.   Just yesterday, I used the last of the Lemon Lime Twist ribbon.  It made me soo sad.  I will miss that one. 

Here is the card I used the last of the ribbon.

I finally used the Lovely Floral Dynamic Embossing Folder.  It's been in my stamp room for several months and I'm just getting around to using it today.  Amazing how that works, right?  Bet you NEVER do that.

Took a different approach today and went mono-chromatic.  Embossed the Lemon Lime Twist with the embossing folder and then just sponged more Lemon Lime Twist over the embossed ridges.  Brought out the details very nicely.  

The card needed a little bit of definition so I added the mat of Whisper White and the Gingham Gala.  I also added Wink of Stella in the large flower petals.  Little shimmer never hurt anyone.

I will miss you Lemon Lime Twist Organdy Ribbon.

Floral Retirement Card

Happy Monday! 

Nothing exciting happened to me today.  Just the  We haven't been real busy lately, so sometimes it hard to come up with ideas of what to do.  You can only do busy work for so long before that gets old.  

Last Thursday, one of my co-workers announces that today is her last day.  She's done.  As in retirement.  Lucky her!  We all knew it was coming, but didn't exactly know when.  She decided that morning.  We weren't able to have a retirement party, but I couldn't resist making a card for every one to sign.  She loves flowers so this is what I came up with.

Unfortunately, the DSP was Birthday Bouquet and is retired.  It was too pretty for me sell it.  The flowers on the DSP and from the Incredible Like You stamp set are very similar.  I was pleased with the way they all looked together.

The ribbon was also retired.  It was from the Sycamore Street pack that had ribbon and buttons.  It was just perfect for this card.  You could easily substitute another ribbon of these colors instead.


After looking through mystash of stamps, I realized not a single stamp said retirement.  Seriously.  How does that happen?  Onto Plan B.  I found a stamp that would work from Thoughtful Banners stamp set.  It fits for her situation, but not ours. 

She will be missed.

Daisy and the Embossing Paste

Is anyone watching the Oscars?  All I'm interested in is the Best Actor/Actress and Film.  I did like the beginning when Queen performed.  In a fluke, I turned it back on just in time to see Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga sing Shallow.  That was terriffic.  The best part is going to watch the score rating of the red carpet dresses. 


I've had this embossing paste for at least 6 months now and have never used it.  For some reason, it seemed intimidating to me.  Crazy right?  Now, I will be the first to say...what was I thinking???  It was really fun and easy to play with. Even addicting.   My club people loved making this card.

The craziest thing I used to make this card was a Stamparatus magnetic sheet and its magnets.  I lined the mask with my Crumb Cake and used the magnets to keep the mask from moving.  If you don't have the Stamparatus, use the Big Shot magnetic platform and magnets.  I liked this because after I added the embossing paste, I could easily life up an edge to see if any part needed to be touched up.  It worked really good.  

I love this brick mask.  But, I can't wait to play with the medallian next.  There are two methods I want to play with.  One is coloring the paste with the re-inkers.  Another is using embossing paste.  Both sound very intriguing and I think the medallian will look super cool using either method.  I'll make sure to share the results.
