Bold Blossoms RETIRED

A client asked me to do some thank you cards for her and this is one of them.  I try to use new products when I can but I also think it is important to use what products I have even if they are have been retired by Stampin' UP.  Here I used all retired items except for the actual Thank You which is from the new Itty Bitty Banners.

Happy Birthday "My Mike" - Picture Frame

We received pictures (texted mostly) of all the grandchildren on July 4th this year.  It's unusual to get them all pictured around the same time so I decided to make a Frame for my husband, Mike's birthday today.  It says Granddaddy, Grandpa, My Mike....whatever they call you, you are loved. 
I really like that our paper crafts allow us to make a variety of personal gifts for those we love.  Hope you like it too.

Thank You Papillon Potpourri

Wanted to share my June Card Club sample.  I cased this card and turned it into a Thank You card.  I used the new Large Scallop Edgelit and the retired punch.  Added a few rhinestones and loved the way this card turned out.  I added dimension to the butterfly with an embossing folder.

New and Retired Come Together

Maybe some of you remember the DSP called Ice Cream Palor.  I loved this bright paper and continue to use it.  Here I have combined it with the new Four Seasons Hostess Stamp Set.  I used Melon Mambo ribbon retired as well.

Birthday Pages

I consider these Scrap Book pages ready for Birthday Party pictures, however they can be used for a variety of events.  I leave titles off so the gals can add their own personal titles.

Today I'm sharing a couple pages I cased for my Scrap Book Club.  Hope you like them.

Apotecary Art Birthday Cards

This lovely pastel Birthday card was made by Patty Holscher from Springfield, VA.  Patty is a member of my Hostess Club. 

This Birthday card was made by Cindy Powell another one of my Hostess Club members who lives in Bedford Pa.  Isn't it amazing that these two ladies used the same Stamp Set and Framelits when making my birthday cards and yet they are so very different.  I wanted to show these lovely cards to make the point that even though you use a stamp set once there are so many looks that can be made.

Betsy's Blossoms

I think is card is full of summer!!  The stamp set is Betsy's Blossoms found in our new catalog.  I used the new cardstock Gumball Green, and while the name is not my favorite, I love the color.  Also used is Melon Mambo, and Daffodil Delight.  While the bird is hand cut out the blossom is punched using the scallop circle punch and another circle punch for the center.  Binding is Daffodil Delight.  Two pearls set the card off.

GREAT Niece Stella's 4th Birthday

I have a Great Niece, Stella, whom I love dearly.  Everyone knows she is a little monkey.  When I walk in the door she runs and grabs me around the waist or below if she can't reach that high.  LOL
Her 4th birthday is today.  I choose pink for little Stella.  The monkey is from a retired set called Fox and Friends and the tree is from Thoughts and Prayers.  Hope she likes the card.

My Great Niece Stella

My sister's daughter, Mandie has two girls and this little monkey is Stella.  Today is her birthday.
Happy Birthday Stella.
