Birthday card swap - Masculine ideas

I'm excited to share with you some fantastic cards from my fabulous team members!

This weekend I hosted a Shoebox swap with my team members.  10 participants in all and now I have a great stash of new birthday cards to send!

What is a shoebox swap? It's where each person designs a quick card (10 min max I said) and we prep the supplies for each person to create one of each card. To cut down on the time to make each card I had each demo prep/stamp/die cut and emboss as much as possible.  It was PERFECT!

I knew I wanted to create some "boy" cards so here are a few ideas for you.

April Coffee, Cookies and Cards

Last month's punch art Coffee, Cookies and Cards class was such a hit that I decided to create more punch art cards. This time I used the Tree Builder punch and the Sprinkles of Life stamp set.

A Christmas card you may be thinking? I know crazy but the "tree branch" in the punch makes perfect reindeer antlers.

Join me for a fun morning or evening of card making.

Date - Tues, April 26
Time - 10am or 7pm
Cost - $15 or free with a qualifying purchase.

Here is the recipe for Snickerdoodles I made last month. They were pretty yummy!

What should I make next month? Requests?

Do you love contests? I do!!

Where retired stamps go to chill!

Stampin’ Up! will release its annual list of retiring stamp sets on April 18, 2016.

These are items that will NOT appear in the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue. 

Can you guess what will be on that list?

Here’s how you can Play!

1.  Grab your 2015-2016 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue (or you can view it here).

2.  Write down 10 stamp sets from this catalogue that you think will be on the retiring list.  (Not including the Hostess or Ronald McDonald sets or accessories.)

3.   Email your list to by 9pm on April 17th. No late entries will be accepted.
4    On April 18th, I will send you the Retiring Lists along with the winner.

The winner will be the person with the most correct guesses. In the event of a tie, I will do a draw to determine the winner. The winner will receive a selection of In Colour Accessories from the new Catalogue (when the new catalogue goes live in June). 

All contest entries will receive a one time 20% coupon off any one item in April and May.  Not valid with club or class orders. Not including tax and shipping.

The fine print:

This contest is open to Canadians only.

Demonstrators are not eligible to participate.
Prizes are valid only through me, Kristine Burns.
Contest may close early if details of the retired list are leaked before the 18th.

3) Sponge
4) and Layer multiple dies

I hope you can join me on Wed, April 20th at 10am or 6:30 pm.
