Hello stampers, crafters and friends, with Easter on Sunday I am going to share with you the cards and some other projects that I created and some that were in the Occasions catalog as inspiration.  If you don’t use your catalogs as inspiration books you need to.  Stampin’ Up!® puts a lot of thought and planning in the samples in each catalog.  Our catalogs are not just meant to be for you to just buy things out of, but to inspire you to take what you see and recreate or CASE it.  CASE (Copy and Share Everything) or (Copy and Selectively Edit).   Here’s a look at the gallery of projects.

I hope that you all have a wonderful Easter holiday, and that you find some time to sneak away from your family functions and find a little time to create something.

Most of you know that we are in the middle of the retirement.   The Retirement list was shared on Monday and if you have not seen it you can see my post about it here.   Here are the details.   The stamps sets are guaranteed to be available until May 22, after that they will be as supplies last.   All the embellishments, ribbons, inks, bundles, (everything else) are only while supplies last.   You can see the current list of sold out items below.
