Retired List and New Sneak Peek

It's that time of year again - out with the old to make way for the new!!  I just got back from Stampin' Up! OnStage in Richmond, VA.  It's a mini convention where we see new products, play with new products, meet new friends and learn new ideas.  It was so much fun!!  The attendees were given the new catalog that starts on June 1 and a few new products to play with before they go live.  Here is a sneak peek of a card we made at the convention:

Isn't he cute!!??!!  He reminds me of the characters from Richard Scarry.  There will be a whole birthday suite of products with him and other cute characters in the new catalog.  Please email me at to reserve your copy.  I am planning an Open House/Catalog Launch in the beginning of June.  Stayed tuned for more details!

To make way for all the new products coming out in June, Stampin' Up! retires some items.  You can access the retiring items online in my store here.  These items are while supplies last so if you see something you like, get it while you can :)

Don't forget to check out Stampin' Up!'s Paper Pumpkin - it's their monthly subscription program where you receive a craft kit in your mailbox each month with everything you need to create a project or cards.  My Paper Pumpkin subscribers are invited to get together with me at the Rockaway Mall Panera Bread on the first Thursday each month and we complete the kit together.  Contact me for more details or sign up here.  You'll receive a kit in May and we'll get together to put it together on June 1st at 5pm.  There are several payment options available, including a prepaid 6 month and prepaid 12 month plan, each which give you a discount on the subscription.  Any questions, please let me know!!  And just a reminder for my current subscribers, we are putting together this month's kit "A Sara Thing" on May 4th at the Rockaway Mall Panera Bread at 5pm.  If you want to see what this program is all about, please feel free to stop by and check out this month's kit with us on 5/4!!

Happy Stamping!!!

Bringing Birthdays Back

I was thinking a lot about birthdays recently.  I make cards, I sell cards, I help others make cards.  Where are all these cards going?  Hopefully not into a drawer someplace, never to be given to someone special.  Do you have cards stashed away but forget to mail them to friends and family?  Do you specifically make (or buy) a card for someone?  Or do you make (or buy) lots of cards to have on hand to send when needed?

Lots of unanswered questions but it leads to a great idea.  It wasn't an original idea of mine - Stampin' Up! has a top demonstrator who started a #imbringingbirthdaysback campaign last year and I like the idea so much I am going to do a small campaign of my own and send handmade birthday cards out this year.  Even though I make cards all year long, I never keep up with birthdays.  I see the post on Facebook in the morning and send a greeting sometimes that way but I would love to be ahead of Facebook.  To mail out cards BEFORE the birthday postings.  So today after work, I came home and started the LIST.  I am a list person anyway but I have to have a list so I have all the info in one place.  Birthday date, name and ADDRESS.  I am finding that the address is the hardest part of this!  I have a very good list going with names & dates and I have a few birthday cards all ready to go but the addresses are a bit more challenging.  With all this technology, I would have thought it would be easier to find addresses than this!!  Oh well, I'm not going to let it stop me.  I am going to start small and send cards to people that I have addresses for and grow from there!

Maybe this will inspire others to join the campaign, too!!!  #imbringingbirthdaysback

Happy stamping!!

Here's a few birthday cards to CASE (copy and share with everyone):
