No Words Can Describe…

No words can describe the kind of excitement that Stampin’ Up! fans get when they see a photo like this. The count-down is on! Only 15 more sleeps till the 2011-2012 Idea Book/Catalog goes LIVE!

It’s like when I was a child. My brother and I would spend hours looking at the Sears Wish Book. We would make many Christmas Lists. Then, we would wait, anxiously, for Santa to come and bring us what we wanted.

OK, maybe it’s not that way for some of you. According to SU policy, I am allowed to start passing out books starting June 20th. That is next Monday. I will plan to be home, for those of you that would like to stop by and get one in your hot little hands. Just let me know you will be stopping by, so I’m decent. LOL!

Sneaky Peeky #1

This card uses a new set from the 2011-2012 Idea Book/ Catalog called “Pennant Parade”. I love it! With pennants and banners being so “hip” right now, SU has really done their homework.


Check back tomorrow for another peek! XO, Mimi

A Little Hint

Well, I didn’t get anything done with my new toys yesterday. My daughter was sick and wanted me to hang out in bed with her. By the time she was feeling better, I got some company. Then, I had to go to softball practice. By the time we got home, I was on babysitting duty for my baby granddaughter. Needless to say, I plan on getting something, anything done today.

Until I get something done, I will give you a hint from the new Idea Book/Catalog. Do you have one of these punches?


Well, if you do and you have been hoping for a stamp set to go with it, your prayers have been answered!

Here is a card a made with one of my favorites from the Occasions Mini Catalog, “Sewing Suite”. It may be in the new Idea Book/Catalog. I’m not tellin’!


Well, till later, XO, Mimi

The Most Wonderful Day of the Year!

Well, at least one of the most wonderful days of the year.

Why? You ask. Well, I have just opened a beautiful brown box from Stampin’ Up! which contains products from and including the new Idea Book/Catalog for 2011-2012.

Sorry, I am forbidden to show you the book or the products until July 1st, but I am allowed to make samples to entice you with. So, if you come to my Masculine Cards Class or if you are at this Saturday’s H2U, get ready for some eye candy from me.

If you would like to order one of the 2011-2012 Idea Book/Catalogs from me, please send me an email to and you will be one of the first to drool over some of the most wonderful stamping, scrapbooking, paper crafting products EVER! The cost of the catalogs is $5.00 for those of you who live locally. If I need to mail it to you, the cost is $8.00 which covers USPS Media Mail.

Keep checking back as I am going to get busy stamping and punching with my new toys, RIGHT NOW!

XO, Mimi

For the Guys in our Life

With Father’s Day coming up on the 19th, I thought it would be a great time to make some Masculine Cards! I need masculine cards now and then and it’s nice to have some stashed away.

When: Tuesday, June 14th at 10:00 AM till 1:00 PM and 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM
(I really don’t think it will take 3 hours but I like to set enough time aside for those who like to take their time or socialize.)

Where: The Paper Rose Studio, 6256 N. Biscayne Dr., North Port, FL

What: Make the 5 masculine cards shown for $15.00. All supplies are included except adhesive. I use Mono Multi glue and have that available for use. If you use a tape runner or other adhesive, please bring it.

R.S.V.P.: Please reserve your spot by NOON Monday, June 13th so I have enough time to cut paper and make kits.
