Wow!  I can't believe it's almost July!  July means that summer is in full swing and it also means the debut of the brand new Stampin' Up Idea Book & Catalog.  It contains more than 200 pages of fresh & new ideas for your cards and scrapbooks.  Contact me to find out how you can get the new catalog for FREE!  :)  Today's cards were created with a stamp set from the catalog, Awash with Flowers.  It's a fun set that makes stamping easy because it contains a stamp and an outline for each image.

Memories....

The release of a new catalog is always bittersweet.  While I'm happy to see new stamp sets, new ink colors, and beautiful new paper, I'm sad to see some of my favorites retire.  Today I was looking through my retired stamp sets and pulled out Natural Beauty.  It's extra special to me because it was the very first stamp set I ever owned!  It seems like yesterday I was introduced to Stampin' Up, but in actuality, it was 2004!  This card also features a retired dsp and the soon to be retired, Really Rust cardstock and ink.
