Hi Stamping Friends,

I spent the week end in Minneapolis for the Midwest local On-Stage event.  The new products are amazing as usual but there are many changes coming in the future.  Stampin’ Up! will no longer be carrying the current trimmer or the Big Shot.  There is a promise of a much better product to replace the trimmer that will not be affected by shipping and tariffs.  It will be awhile before it is released.  Also new dies will be coming designed by Stampin’ Up! and will have less possibility of being back ordered.  These dies will work with any die cutting machine.  You and I will have to be patient through these transitions.  In addition it seems like 90% of the current catalog is being retired.  If there is a stamp set, die or designer series paper that you are longing for now is the time to get that order placed.  I will be happy to help in any way I can.

Speaking of changes, Dave and I are doing some remodeling.  We are in the process of the kitchen right now.  That is one of the worst rooms to renovate.  I know I will love it when it’s done but right now, not so much!  That is the reason I have not been able to post this past week.  My craft studio is next on the list for renovation so everything is moved into our den where our new kitten resides for now. I hope you will be patient with me until I get my life back in order.

I do have a card to share with you today.  I made it for my last surviving aunt.  She has always been my favorite so I try to stay in touch with her especially on special occasions.  I started with Whisper White CS 5 1/2 ” by 8 1/2 ” .  Score at 4 1/4 ” and score 2 1/8 inch from each side.  I used DSP from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  Mountain fold at the 4 1/4 score. I added DSP to all four of the inside panels and the two outside panels.  A belly band holds it together when it closes.  Take a look.  Once again thank you for stopping by and for your patience through the changes.
