Occasions Mini Last Day to order!

Time flies when you are having fun!  Say goodbye to these AMAZING accessories and three product ‘suites’ in Stampin’ Up!’s 2012 Occasions Mini Catalog.  The suites feature coordinating papers, sets and accessories:

Be sure to order by today… use the  downloadable PDF or you can view it online in the interactive flash format for a limited time.  Stampin’ Up! hasn’t published the ‘carryover’ accessories and we won’t know what sets will be carried into the new catalog in June.

Have you forgotten already?  Look at some of the fun I’ve had with them:

Remember, my online purchase gift for April & May is 20% of your purchases back in free product in the new catalog–that you will receive… CLICK HERE for more information and to see the current ‘Class to Go’ that you will also receive.

HEADS UP FOR MAY 1ST!  Excellent news!  Starting tomorrow, you can join Stampin’ Up! for only $99 and it is really, completely, totally customizable… no ‘set’ price limits, etc.  That’s right… the Stampin’ Up! starter kit will be $99 and the online sign up process will be simplified.

I will post all about it tomorrow… are you excited?  I am!

Apothecary Art Stamp Set matching card and box

This card box is very simple to make from a regular 8 1/2 x 11 inch piece of cardstock (cut to 8 1/2 x 10 inches).  And as promised in my previous post, I have included the downloadable photo step-by-step PDF and the diagram for cutting and scoring.  It also has the set and accessory list. UPDATED: I realized after posting, that I didn’t specify on the diagram in the PDF where to cut.

The coloring technique was achieved with Watercolor Crayons (Brights #119804) and a blender pen (#102845).  The set is the ‘Bordering On Romance’ stamp set (wood #125480, clear #125482) from Stampin’ Up!’s Occasions Mini Catalog.

Of course I guess that I OVERUSE the Sizzix embossing folder ‘Vintage Wallpaper‘… I just stinkin’ love it!  And I can’t get enough of the Framelits dies ‘Labels Collection’ (#125598).  The colors are all from the ‘brights’ collection Melon Mambo, Old Olive & Pacific Point.

This box is so easy to make… I have a trick for getting the end of it embossed and fitting it through the Big Shot, its in the directions.  So, how’d I do? What will you use the box for?  How about Mother’s Day stationery set for the mom who has everything?
