The swaps from our meeting were great!!! The theme was embossing and everyone did such a great job. This week has been a little crazy! On Wednesday, out of the blue, I decided to clean, and I mean a huge clean, my stamp room. I cleaned out the closet, rearranged everything and basically spent the day going through tons of stuff. Some stuff that I knew I had, some I had no idea :) Anyway I hope my new layout to my room will help keep me organized and neat :) We'll see. In other news you may have heard about the new color refresh from Stampin' Up!, if not I'll share it with you at the bottom of this post. I'm really trying to be positive about this but I have to be honest, I have very mixed feelings about it. I won't go into the details but I'm hoping that with time and use I'll learn to love the new color families. But onto the swaps!!!!!
This one is Cassie's. Love the butterfly. Butterflies and flowers seemed to dominate the swaps.....spring must be in the air :)
This is Stephanie's. This banner is too cute!
This is Kay's. Isn't this a fun bright card!?!
This elegant card is Karen's. Don't you love it! Do you see that butterflies were popular :)
This is Amber's first swap-she did 3 because she has 2 new recruits! Yay Amber!! I love this card!
This is Amber's second card. I love this card!
This is Amber's final card. It's so pretty!!!!
This is Carmelita's swap. I haven't invested in this set but I sure do love this card!
Finally, Kim's card. I love how she embossed the vintage brad and put in in a bottle cap. Great job to everyone! I love them!!!!
Now onto the color refresh. Here's the new color families, you'll see on the bottom the colors that are leaving us. I'm especially sad to see Pretty in Pink, Baja Breeze and Certainly Celery go! :( But like I said I think with time we'll all love the new colors. You'll see that all but one of the colors are old incolors. I'm excited that we can keep Pool Party :) But if some of your favorite colors are on the going away list make sure you stock up now. That means cardstock, reinkers, markers, pads, ribbon, brads, etc. And do it fast! You don't want them to sell out before you stock up, plus if you do it this weekend SU is giving FREE shipping! You can order anything this weekend and get free shipping on your order!!! Isn't that great!?! The free shipping is only offered through Monday though so act fast! You can email me your order or shop online at my website. Orders over $150 not only get the free shipping but get hostess benefits too!!! It's a win win!!! Have a great weekend!
