With this being the 1st night that I have my hubby home from tax season….tomorrow is a new day and hopefully we will have insight!



Hello and I hope that you all had a great weekend! I did and I planned to have a fun one for you today as on Saturday I shared with you that I would be back with another another cute Easter project!

Not only is it super easy to make…as it uses the basics but that if you are like me….you will be smiling from (EAR to EAR..ha-ha – no pun intended)

There are some staples (aka classics) in making this SUPER CUTE EASTER GOODIE…but I need to share something that is SUPER important to us crafters….and that is the RETIRED LIST!




It has officially gone up just minutes ago and you know what that means…. –  you better get your catalogs out and take a look….I always highlight mine so I can easily SPOT IT…. and I know that it is A LOT to take in but always remember…we go through this each and every year and in the end...ALL IS GOOD!

I did not attend the OnStage Stampin’ Up! event over the weekend so I am just like YOU.…trying to take it all in so this is what we are going to do….I will share the cute project tomorrow with also some Blog Candy!

POP BACK TOMORROW for the cutest Easter post…and I am giving you HEADS UP.…that it does use (3) main products that are on the retired list….

I think one thing we can all agree on is Stampin’ Up! PUNCHES ARE SIMPLY THE BEST!

I did a super quick scan of the punches and wanted to give you a heads up on these…I know that there are many ways that we can cut out circles but a punch is a “reach and grap…press and go speed tool” – a total time saver and these circle punches are retiring.

There is one more circle punch retiring but I did not use that one in tomorrows post…..I say – CLASSIC and BASIC SHAPES like this are MUST HAVES for what we do!

(click image below for OCCASIONS CATALOG…I would print it off)



I am going to be like you and take it in and then I will also share with you once I mark up my Catalog the items that I truly believe would be a great purchase for your stash.

Trust me, I get it as we all have so much but remember….things go flying off the shelves and all I can say is if there is a certain product that you really have been wanting….I would HOP ON IT

I am always super upfront with things that make me roll in making clean and simple cards/projects…and these that I have highlighted below are definite keepers!


p.s. – It’s VOICE NIGHT and it’s also HAPPY DANCE NIGHT for John as Tax Season will be in the record books!


I know that there are times when you print off the PDF that it is just too darn hard to read the small print…so here are some clickable categories that might help!

Remember, all Bundles will retire at the end cycle of a catalog but that does not necessarily mean that there are retiring from the  next catalog – it is just that they will not be at the bundled price
