Magnolia Lane Memories and More Card

Today I’m sharing a 2nd card that we created in my last virtual card class.  This one features the Magnolia Lane Memories and More cards along with the Magnolia Lane DSP, both of which are on the Last Chance Product promotion and only available while supplies last! (NOTE – the regular package of DSP has sold out but you can still purchase the Magnolia Lane Bulk Designer Series Paper which gives you even more amazing papers to work with!)

I just love the different look of the Memories and More card pack, and having the decorated envelope insert really ties it all together.


 

Here’s a close up of the flower, which was so easy to create using the Magnolia Memory dies.

 

And here’s the inside of the card.  I used the Stitched So Sweetly dies, which I absolutely LOVE!

 

Here are the instructions for making this card.  I hope you’ll give it a try!  It’s a very versatile design and you can add any sentiment you wish to the inside 🙂

It’s a Spring Thing!

Welcome to our April NC Demos Blog Hop!  You may have just come here from Tina Lesson’s blog and I know she shared an awesome project.  We have so many talented demonstrators who participate each month, I’m always excited to see what everyone has submitted!

Spring is finally here and even though we are still in the midst of a “stay at home” order in NC, I’m so happy to have some nice weather to enjoy!  My husband and I have already been busy in our gardens, weeding and freshening up as much as we can.  I just love getting out and digging in the dirt, it helps clear my mind and it’s an immediate boost to my mood.  Here’s a few pics of some of our perennials  🙂

 

Our blog topic this month is very appropriately focused on SPRING, anything to do with Spring!  Any of the things that make us think of Spring events, holidays, or just the lovely weather!

My projects this month are flower-themed.  I anxiously wait for our flowers to bloom each year, and they come much earlier here in NC then they did back in the northeast!  And a flower that you definitely see here in the south is the Magnolia.  It’s a magnificent flower and I think it smells heavenly.  So I was immediately drawn to this stamp set, Good Morning Magnolia when it was introduced in the current Annual catalog.  I’ve also used the Magnolia Memory Dies and Magnolia Lane DSP.  I just love the colors used in the DSP, they seem very calming to me, if that makes sense.  And here’s some great news, the stamps and dies will carry over to the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!  But if you just need to have the DSP (and OF COURSE you do, lol!), you’ll want to grab it now before it sells out.  It’s still currently available in the Last-Chance section of my online store, as is the bulk package of the DSP, which is a GREAT value!.

   

My card is actually one that I submitted for a swap when the catalog launched.  I’ve made this same card several times since then, using the exact same materials, and also substituting other stamps and DSP.  It’s such an easy layout to replicate.  The box was inspired by the sample on page 37 of the current Annual catalog, I just changed it up a little.

The sentiments that I used on these projects is from the Petals and Parcels stamp set, another one that is carrying over to the new catalog 🙂   One of the many benefits of being a SU! demonstrator is that we get to see the new catalog early, so I’ve spent the last day combing through it to see what has carried over.  I was actually quite pleased to see how many of my current stamp sets are staying!  But, there are SO many new sets that I’ve already fallen in love with, so I’ll need to make some room for the new additions 🙂  If you’d like a copy of the new catalog, please comment on this blog post BEFORE April 29th, as I will be submitting my order for catalogs on April 30th.

I’d like to share a little tip with you on how I store my dies when they coordinate with a specific stamp set.  I purchase magnetic sheets from Marietta Magnetics.  I’ve ordered magnetic sheets from several other vendors and these are my favorite.  They are a soft, pliable sheet (not heavy at all )and they have an adhesive backing, so they stick right inside my stamp case.  And they are the perfect size, I don’t have to cut them down to fit.  This makes it so easy for me to know that I don’t have to search for matching die sets when I want to create something. Maybe this is something that would be helpful to you as well!

Don’t forget that we have a lot of Last Chance products, available only while supplies last!

Thanks for taking a look at my projects this month.  Please continue on through the rest of the hop,  Sue Stapp is next up and I know you will be wowed!  Just click on the graphic below to keep “hopping”!

Happy Stamping!

Retiring 2018-2020 In Colors!

Believe it or not, we only have a little over 3 months left that we can purchase the bold, bright selections of the 2018-2020 In-Color lineup!  That’s right, these beauties will retire at the end of May.  I wanted to give you an early heads up about this.  Once everyone starts to realize that these colors are going away, they start buying up ink refills, cardstock, and embellishments long before the Annual Catalog retires.   So, now is the time to grab them!
