Goodbye April!

I cannot believe April is over all ready.  What happened to this month let alone the first third of this year?  The end of April also means the end of the Occasions Mini Catalog.  Today is your last chance to place orders from it.  And since we don't know what is carrying over to the new catalog, if there is something you want, you probably want to get it now.

A big thanks to everyone who participated in the blog hop this weekend.  Weren't the projects fabulous?  Didn't it make you want all those stamp sets?  I promised a closer look at the projects this week so today we are going to look at the first card I shared:

Colors: Peach Parfait(retiring), Pear Pizzazz (retiring), Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.  Stamps: Borderlines (retiring), Sweethearts (retiring), Mixed Bunch, Heard from the Heart(retiring).  Punches: Blossom and 3/4" circle.  Accessories: In Color Glimmer Brads (retiring), Daffodil Delight 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon (retiring).
This is normally not a card I would demonstrate, because it uses so many parts and pieces from several different stamp sets, but we did make it at club last week. I wanted to show how Borderlines coordinates with all the other stamps in our collection and I wanted to get one more use out of these retiring stamps and accessories.

Remember retiring accessories are only available while supplies last and some of them discounted up to 70%.  Retiring stamp sets will be available through May 31.  However, Mixed Bunch and the Blossom Punch are in the Occasions Mini Catalog and as I mentioned before, that catalog ends today.  You can just click that handy "shop now" button and place your order now, before it's too late.

Come back on Wednesday and I'll show you more details on the scrapbook page from the blog hop and announce my first ever Facebook Contest in honor of National Scrapbook Month.

Such a great card! I really love those colors together, especially with the pop of Daffodil Delight!

I will miss "Borderlines" but remain hopeful we will see Mixed Bunch and the punch in our next catalog. There's always hope.... ;)

This is a great stamp set - I hadn't noticed it before the hop really. I guess since I usually focus on the Mini's I'm not well versed in the IBC. Your hop projects are fabulous!

I'll miss the border stamps. They're always a great timesaver for quick backgrounds. Sigh.
