Father's Day cards

Here are the Father's Day cards I made for the men in my family's life.  I used Papertreyink's Pond life and Father Knows Best sets.  Love them both for great masculine cards.  You gotta get these.  I used all Stampin' UP! papers and inks.

Decor Elements: New Stampin' UP! product line

Stampin' UP! announced yesterday to demonstrators a new product line released today. It is called Decor Elements, which are a new line of vinyl wall elements that coordinated with our stamps. These are large wall decorations that will add interest and instant decoration to your walls, picture frames, mirros, glass doors, or pretty much anything you might want to put them on. They will be available for sale to customers on July 1st. They are pretty and I think you will find creative uses for them all over the house. Click on Decor Elements and find the brochure. I think this will be a great product, and I am already thinking about where I might be able to add some of these elements in my new home.

New Stampin' UP! news: 2008-09 In Colors

Here is a tiny sneak peak at the descriptions of the new 2008-09 In Colors: 
Kiwi Kiss- a pretty bright lime green color sure to pair well with lots of other colors.  Strawberry-kiwi color combos anyone?
Tangarine Tango- a fiery, Spanish sunset orange color
Pink Pirouette-soft pretty pastel pink, think pink ballet slippers
Riding Hood Red- a true daring red
Pacific point-a stunning sapphire blue
Baja breeze-- a soothing blue sort of a cross between soft sky and cool caribbean if you will from what I can see.

Just a reminder:  don't forget to stock up on this year's InColors before August 9th.  They will be all gone after that.  Like the gorgeous groovy guave, soft sky, river rock, and purely pomegranite.  If you bought any Designer papers with these colors in them you need to check to make sure you have solid cardstock to go with them for cards or other projects.  Don't forget the coordinating ribbons.  Time is running out.  Plan your next month and a half's purchases to include these items.  

Don't go away, as I will be posting several projects in the next week that I have been working on.  I made some wedding gifts, some cards for friends, and hopefully I 'll get my Father's day cards done.  

Oh, and check out Papertrey's release this month on the 15th.  Some ultra cool things there too.  I love the new boards and beams set, as well as the grid lines set.  And they now have vanilla cardstock which is like SU! only much much thicker.  Very sturdy for card bases and such.

See you soon.
