The day has finally arrived!  Poppy now has her very own tutorial.  Whew!  I know it's been a long time coming but hopefully it will be worth the wait.

Poppy's Tutorial is FREE with any $20 purchase from my ONLINE STORE .  That's right!  You read that correctly.  You can choose ANY product totaling $20 or more, place your order with just a few clicks and not only will your order be delivered to your doorstep....you'll receive the awesome tutorial for FREE in your inbox too.  How cool is that?

Once you've placed your order, simply email me at shellsuit@verizon.net and let me know the email address where you'd like me to send your FREE tutorial. 

If you decide that you'd rather just purchase the tutorial, you can do that too (although I know that I'd much rather get the FREE stuff).  You can purchase the tutorial separately for $15 via PayPal.  Simply click the link below to do so....

Blue Water Blog Hop

Hello, Friends!

I'm so excited to be a part of a brand new blog hop with some amazing stampers.  It's called the "Blue Water Blog Hop".

This theme for our first hop is "Last Chance".  As you know Stampin' Up recently released this year's retiring list and we wanted to share some of our favorite products that are on that list.  Not only am I sharing multiple "last chance" items...I'm also sharing a "fun fold" card with you too.

Here's a video that includes all of my Last Chance "must haves" and the instructions for the card.


Here's the info for the products I used....




Alrighty....are you ready for the next "Last Chance" stop on our hop?  Carrie Vermazen is your next stop....  Enjoy!

Time to Retire...

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
It's time to say "Goodbye"....
View this email in your browser

It's time to bid farewell to some and say "Hello!" to the new....

As we get ready to welcome the NEW Stampin' Up! catalog, we have to first retire some old "friends" to make room.  The Retired Product list was released and items are selling out quickly.  Check out all of the amazing deals.  There are items reduced up to 50% off. Woot!

Here's my top five "must haves" from the Retired List.....

1.  Owl Builder Punch - #118074
What can I say?  This punch is one of my VERY favorites.  I have used it non-stop since it arrived and I will own it always. <3

2.  Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set - #130514 (w)  #130517 (c)
This stamp set has been well loved for sure.  I LOVE it for backgrounds and collage stamping. *sniffle*

3.  Die Brush  #140603
This is a tool that I used all of the time when die cutting.  I may order a couple of extras to keep on hand. LOL


4.  Tags and Labels Framelits  #138281
These nested framelits are simply the bomb dot com.  They are my "go to" for making tags and labels for all sorts of projects.


5.  Cool Treats Bundle  #145181
I love everything about this stamp set and matching framelits.  I use it in card making and scrapbooking and I can't NOT have it in my studio. <3 *love*


So....what are your top five?  Check out the list and see what your "must haves" are and then make sure to get them before they're gone.  Just CLICK HERE to head over to my Online Store.

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead with a little time to get your fingers inky.

Stamped Blessings,
Michelle
