Retiring Products Reminder - Current Catalog ends June 2nd - Flashback

The current catalog ends on June 2nd (which mean a new catalog also begins that day:)  It is always sad to see favourite products go or retire.  As I was preparing for my new catalog workshop over the weekend and putting together some door prizes, I couldn't resist using some of my favourites that will be retiring.  Today I thought I'd feature the Flashback designer series paper for you.  I made this cute little treat bag using the treatbag thinlets (not retiring...yeah!) to package one of my doorprizes.  I just love the bold pattern of this paper & especially the colour palette.

If there are any retiring products you want, be sure to place your order online by June 2nd.  See this link for a list of all retiring products and a link to my Stampin Up website where you can place your order:)

The New Annual Catalog is Coming! ...goes live June 2nd!!!

I received my copy of the 2015-16 Annual Catalog which goes live June 2nd this week...and I received the supply of catalogs I've ordered.  I haven't quite delivered to all my club girls yet (given recent events), but this is in process.  If you live in Saskatoon and want a copy of the catalog & have not received one yet, please contact me & we'll arrange for you to get one.

Also, as you can see above, I have added tabs to my copy of the annual catalog.  If you'd like to receive the word document I created to make the tabs, please leave your email address in a comment below or email me and I will be happy to send it to you.  For some reason Blogger will not let me include a link to the document in this post.

The 2015-17 *new* in colours are above.  I made a bookmark featuring each of them and slipped it into the catalogs for each of my club ladies this weekend.  The new in colours are:  watermelon wonder, cucumber crush, delightful Dijon, mint macaroon & tip top taupe...and I already have a favourite!:)

And what, may you ask, is my favourite? ...why it's the very colour of the Laduree tea salon and more in Paris

MINT MACARON!!!  (pronounced:  maca-roon...ask any Frenchman!:)

I've started a board on pinterest for 'mint macaron'...loving all the colour combinations I'm coming up with for it!!

And, speaking of colour combinations, how about this one:  mint macaron, tip-top tauge & watermelon wonder?....
Love, love love, the new lace trim that comes in ALL of the new in colours!

What's your favourite of the new colours?

Explaining a Long Absense..

(The beautiful art above was created by my talented upline, Shawna McKenzie)

Without going into a lot of details, earlier this month my Mom passed away very suddenly.  It has been a difficult time in many ways, but God is always good and we are doing ok.

Today I'm sharing the card my SU upline & friend sent me.  Shawna is an amazing artist & the card is stunningly beautiful!  I love the way she used many elements from the On Film Framelists to the way she coloured the floral image, and especially, the use of the Dictionary background stamp (which is retiring).

A special thank you to all of those blog readers who have sent messages, cards and flowers, and especially to those who have prayed!!
