As we gear up for the launch of the new Stampin' Up! 2012-2013 Catalog on June 1, we shouldn't forget that there are some amazing stamps (300+) and accessories retiring. Many accessories are on sale! Get the 411 on Stampin' Up! Stamps (available through 5/31) and Retiring Accessories (available while supplies last) HERE.
Today's project shows off a number of the retiring products, including Full of Life stamp set (images below), one of my "go to" sentiment sets for the last few years. It also shares a simple way to dress up a notecard and envelope. The Stampin' Up! Note Cards & Envelope Set comes with 20 scored 3 1/2" x 5" WhisperWhite cards and coordinating envelopes for $5.95. Such a bargain and always ready to go!
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIP: Stampin' Up! Baker's Twine and Linen Thread go through most button holes pretty easily. Our 1/8" taffeta ribbon will also go through . . . however, I snip one end to a point to thread it easier. Here's a tutorial on this little trick.
IN A HURRY? Try using a Uniball Signo White Gel Pen to fake a stitch!
