Loving the Hearts

Two weeks from today (June 1st) the brand new catalog goes live!  I'm so excited for lots of new products.  But "in with the new" means we have to say goodbye to some of our favorite products.  A reminder that the stamp sets on the retiring list are available until the end of the month, and the retiring accessories are available only while supplies last.  And, some of the accessories are  discounted--up to 70% off!  Both lists are LONG this year, so double check that you aren't missing out on something from your wish list.

This card is one that I made with a group of ladies from my church around Valentine's Day.  I think this card could be used for an anniversary or wedding as well.  It also happens to showcase several of the accessories that are being discontinued: the Heart to Heart punch, Chantilly Crochet Trim Ribbon, and the Cutter Kit.  I'm definitely sad that the Cutter Kit is being discontinued as I use it ALL the time. . . good thing I already have two.  :-) 

After we made up the cards, I used leftover pieces to make some tags that I added to cookies to give as teacher gifts for Valentine's Day.  The tag is from the Two Tags Bigz Die.  On all the big hearts (from the Full Heart Punch) I scrunched the paper to give a little more texture.  Also, sponging, distressing, and even a little Color Spritzer tool on the card adds more texture and variety.  I also used Hemp Twine on the tag--another accessory that is retiring that I will really miss!  It also happens to be 50% off--while supplies last!  I've already stocked up.  :-)  

Have a great weekend!
