I’ve been trying all week to come up with what we will be making at the Open House. I’ve decided on this one. I’ll have plenty of verses to choose from so you don’t have to make it a Get Well card.

Mojo Monday Submission

I thought I would do a Mojo Monday sketch.  Been trying to use some of the new In Colors. This card is made with Midnight Muse, Rasberry Ripple, Crumb Cake & Very Vanilla. Open Sea is the stamp set.  I used the new banner die  that’s coming out in the new caddy. I made the matted border by just glueing it on to another piece of card stock and cutting around the banner. You kind a need a steady hand for that technique!

RETIRING IN COLORS

Here is a message directly from Stampin’ Up!

RETIRING IN COLORS

May 17, 2012As you know, the 2010-2012 In Colors will retire at the end of the month. It’s hard to believe that it’s already time to say goodbye to Blushing Bride, Concord Crush, Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz, and Poppy Parade!

We announced in 2010 during the last color renovation that we plan to refresh the Stampin’ Up! color collections every three to five years. With that in mind, you may want to hold onto your 2010-2012 In Colors supplies in case we add them to a color collection in the future.

Ok, I’m away on business in NJ (my real job as an accountant, not my fun job as a SU demo), but I took about 80 pictures to work on the nugget cake tutorial that should be ready by the weekend. Here’s the other cake I made that you will see in the tutorial. This one is made with the “Just Add Cake” DSP.  You can still get the DSP until the end of the month. I didn’t put any verses or pictures on scallop pieces. I’m not sure what I was going to use it for so I left it blank.

The detailed tutorial will be available as a PDF download for $2.50. All club members and customers who place an order with me in May & June will get it for free!

Had a workshop last night and one of my customers asked me to figure out how to make those cute nugget birthday cakes she’s been seeing all over blogs and Pinterst. Here’s one she found. So, I’m always up for a challenge!  I spent all day today working on this and it came out awesome. I think it’s one of my best projects in a long time.  What do you thing??

I’m going to make another one tomorrow that’s going to be a teacher as end of the year teacher gifts.  I’m planning on doing a tutorial on it so stay tuned! Remember, all my Club members & customers get my tutorials for free!
