Birthday Memories Suite

Happy, Happy Birthday to You!

Have you ever fallen in love at first sight?  No, not with a boy, with a Stampin' Up! Suite!  Well, I did with the Birthday Memories Suite in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  Turn to page 68 in your catalog right now...I'll wait.

Ok, now. look at those two pages.  Aren't they lovely?  First off, this suite consists of Designer Series Paper, a Stamp Set, Framelits, Balloon Honeycomb Embellishments, four colors of ribbon, and a cardstock pack.  Wow!
Honeycomb Balloons

Stitched-Edge Ribbon comes in Pacific Point, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, and Rich Razzleberry

Now, turn to page 189 to take a closer look at the DSP.  Check out how many colors are in the DSP...12! yes, 12 colors (plus Whisper White)!  Seriously, this DSP will go with AN*Y*THING!

Now flip back to page 68.  Look at the framelits.  We all know that framelits "frame" stamped images, right?  Making those stamped and colored images easy to cut out...but wait, these framelits are better, do you know why??  They also MATCH THE IMAGES ON THE DSP!  No, really they do!  I know you're going to want to cut out those foxes, girls, cakes, balloons, and poodles, and Stampin' Up! knew you would too so they made it super easy!  They're awesome that way.

Kay, Cindy, Patience, and I had a big ole' BOGO sale on Saturday.  We each picked a suite, stamp set, or theme and made a display showcasing it.  I chose this suite, and might have slightly gone overboard...just a tiny bit.

Because yes, noise makers!

I know you want this Suite, so let me know before the end of June because I'll throw in the Balloon Honeycomb Embellishments when you order the bundle of the stamp set, framelits, and DSP - item number 145294 - Birthday Delivery Bundle - $62.00 (that's a 10% savings).

Joyful Stamping,

I am loving the DSP in the 2017-2018 catalog!  The designs feel fresh and trendy.  One of my favorites is the Pick a Pattern Suite.  The paper is bright, but not overwhelming.  And the patterns on the back are absolutely great!  I think I might like them more than the "pretty" side!

In these two cards I used the two papers that have black graphic patterns on the back.  These are great "not boring" neutrals!  I also used the piece that has Flirty Flamingo flowers on it.

Flirty Flamingo Sweetness

I love this cupcake stamp set so much!  It's triple layer (!!) stamping on both the cupcake liner and the frosting.  Doesn't it look delicious?  I'm sure that Flirty Flamingo frosting is strawberry flavored.  See the black graphic print?  It lets you use Basic Black, but not Boring Black!  I think it makes this sweet cupcake edgier...like Joan Jett's cupcake (I just dated myself, didn't I?)

You're Awesome, Graduate!
I attended two college graduations yesterday (yay, Jen and Tyler!).  I'm still in a graduation card state of mind.  I love how this patterned Basic Black paper goes so well with this '50s style marquee.  This whole card makes me think of drive-in movie theaters and sock hops!

I'm looking forward to showing you all of the new (AMAZING) Designer Series Paper (DSP) that's coming out on June 1!

Joyful Stamping,
