Friends!  There are only two weeks left to order from the current Stampin’ Up! catalog.  I’m happy to say that with the launch of the new catalog on June 1st, changes and announcements are coming soon to Stamping with Charlene! You are going to love three new features that I’ve been busy working on behind-the-scenes. In the meantime, there are a few things I need for you to do so you are ready when the changes and announcements take place.  Here goes: Subscribe to Receive Updates When I Post to This Blog You have a couple of choices.  Pick what works best for you: You can enter your info in the box at the top of my right sidebar and you’ll receive an email notice when I post a new project.

New Clearance Items Added & Party Animal Suite Project

Party Animal Suite One of these days, I’m going to write a blog post about writing blog posts.  If you only knew what it takes.  It’s a full-time job.  And then when you look at your analytics and see that the number of people who actually visit this blog in NO WAY matches the amount of effort you put in, you kind of have a nervous breakdown.  Take my last post, for example.  I had an entire video prepared with a step-by-step tutorial.  However, with all of the editing and time it took, I said, “Forget it! No one is going to look at this anyway!” But now on to the important stuff!  First, be sure to check out the Clearance Rack!  There are several new items, including the Stitched with Cheer Project Kit, which is now only $9.60! (I ordered ten kits!)  In addition to the Clearance Rack, there are several items in the current 2017 Occasions Catalog at lower prices!  Today, I’m featuring items from the Party Animal Suite. You know I’m addicted to the Mini  Treat Bag Thinlits Dies!  I’m so happy this item is NOT retiring! Take a look at the new prices, especially on the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies!   Here is a list of all of the items in the Party Animal Suite.  Ignore the prices that are listed on the slide show, except for the stamp set.  The Balloon Adventures Stamp Set is still full-priced. When you click on the slides and order the items, the correct sale price will be shown in your shopping cart.

Stamp Review Crew: Cool Treats Stamp Set

Stamp Review Crew:  Cool Treats Stamp Set Welcome to this week’s Stamp Review Crew:  Cool Treats Stamp Set.  The Stampin’ Up! Cool Treats Stamp Sets and its coordinating Frozen Treats Framelits Dies are two of my favorites from the 2017 Stampin’ Up Occasions Catalog.  Today, I’ve created two different cards that show the use of all of the products in the entire “Cool Treats Suite.” You can also view another Cool Treats card I created HERE. If you are following along with this week’s Stamp Review Crew, you’ve arrived here from Charlet Mallett’s blog. One of the best parts about the Cool Treats Stamp Set is that there are so many wonderful coordinating products that go along with the stamp set. For the “Happiest Birthday” gate-fold card, I used the Cool Treats Stamp Set, the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper, and the Frozen Treats Framelits Dies.  For the card below, I used ALL of the items in the Cool Treats Suite: Cool Treats Stamp Set Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper Frozen Treats Framelits Dies Tasty Treats Designer Washi Tape Sprinkles Embellishments The Tasty Treats Washi Tape and the Sprinkles Embellishments add so much charm to your cards and projects.  I just want to eat the cards! The ice cream reminds me of my childhood summer days in New Jersey.  We would play in the sprinklers outside all day and then cool ourselves off with popsicles or yummy custard from the custard stand.  I love when art imitates life, don’t you? I’ve created the slide show below to make ordering easier for you.  All of the products I used to create today’s cards are shown below.  Click on a slide to order, but HURRY!  Many of the items are retiring at the end of May, and are offered at reduced prices. Things are selling out quickly!  You don’t want to miss out!
