It's been a while!!!

Well, it's been a while since I last posted something - it was a very busy summer and fall!! I went to San Francisco for a conference with work - it was beautiful! I got a Master Angler for catching a 35.5" long catfish, I got a promotion at work, and I am in my first craft show this Sunday with my friend Joanne, one of my downline!!! So there is and was lots going on, but I will try to be better at posting my cards and craft items - especially the stuff I am selling at the craft fair - I am pretty happy with the items!

This card is one of a few that I made for family members when my great-aunt died of cancer in October. I was very glad that I got to visit her twice the weekend before she passed. She did not suffer, and went quickly and peacefully. RIP Auntie Julie, xoxoxo.

2 Birthdays!

Well, it's been a while since I last posted something to the blog, summer's been keeping me busy! Not a lot of time to stamp, but I get it in there when I can!!

I had to make two birthday cards a couple weeks ago for Phil's sister and neice, shown below.

The card for his sister is the same basic layout as my last post - the masculine dog lover birthday... by just changing the colors and the stamped image, you have a completely different card!

Ink: Basic Grey, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red markers
Stamps: Happy Moments, Priceless,
Punches: Curly Label, Word Window
Other: dimensionals, Wild Wasabi ribbon (R), paper piercing template and mat pack, paper piercing tool


The colors I chose for Phil's niece's card are her favorite colors - turquoise and green! The Green Galore and Apricot Appeal are now retired, so I wanted to use up my stock! I am going to miss Green Galore!


Cardstock: Green Galore (R), Tempting Turquoise, Apricot Appeal (R), Whisper White, Rainbow Sherbet DSP (R)

Birthday card

I usually bring cards I make to work with me and show them to coworkers before giving them away, and one of the women I usually share my cards with asked me to make a card for a dear friend of hers that is celebrating her 65th birthday. She wanted something special, so this is what I came up with. I knew the Elements of Style stamp set (pictured right) would be perfect. 
The card turned out great and my coworker was extremely happy with it! After taking the pictures, I decided to add the hummingbird stamp, so it is not shown in all the images below.

Cardstock: Kiwi Kiss (retired), Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Rose Red
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, Regal Rose, Old Olive (Markers)
Stamps: Elements of Style, All Holidays, En Francais background
Punches: Scallop Trim Border, 1/2" circle, Curly Label Punch

Other: dimensionals, Big Shot, Top Note die, Little Leaves sizzlit die, paper snips, Build-a-Brad in Antique Brass, Chocolate Chip satin ribbon, Vanilla Smooch Spritz

 The pictures above show the difference before and after I added the hummingbird to the bottom left.

Let me know what you think!

There are hundreds of new stamps & accessories coming.... make room!

This past week, Stampin' Up! released THREE lists of products that will retire at the end of this month.  Seeing what is on the list gives an idea of the stylistic change that Stampin' Up is leaving behind and gives me hope for new beautiful & fun images in the new catalogue that comes out July 1st!

As a demonstrator, I got a sneak peek on several stamp sets, punches, Big Shot items and more that will be in the new Catalogue.  There are some great items coming!!!

Below are three documents that you can download and print to see what is retiring from the current catalogue & what is staying. Take a moment, and have fun checking out the LAST CHANCE lists.  The items on this list will permanently retire in 30 days.  If you'd like to grab something before it's gone please order online or contact me and I can order it for you.

Definitely Decorative Retiring list
(Everything on the list is 25% off!)


(Please note many items in the Accessories list have a * beside them indicating that they are being reconfigured with the new core colours so they're not necessarily retiring a whole product, just some colours in that product)

Mother’s Day Gifts Class!

With Mother’s Day coming up on May 9th, you are probably wondering what to get for Mom. Hint: Moms just LOVE gifts that are handmade by you with love. So if you’re looking for something great to make your mom that will let her know how much she is appreciated, come out and join us in a great afternoon where you will make everything you need to make this Mother’s day great for her! 


The cost of the class is $20 and you will leave with a card (with envelope), a shadow box “MOM” frame, a “MOM” post-it-note fridge magnet and a great bookmark – and all will remind her of you – because you made everything yourself!
We will be using all Stampin’ Up! products; the Big Shot and dies, punches, Stampin’ Pastels and Markers, Ribbons and pearls. You will also get to test out the brand new “Smooch Spritz” (coming out in the Summer Mini on May 1st) which adds a pearlized glitter to the projects!



What to bring with you:
  1. Adhesive  - if you have both glue and a 2-sided tape runner, please bring both. Otherwise, bring what you have
  2. Scissors


Everything else will be provided for you including all papers, inks, embellishments, accessories, magnet and frame. All of the papers will be pre-cut for you and all you have to do is stamp, punch, embellish and assemble the layouts. You will also have the opportunity to try out the Big Shot if you have never used it before.

Each layout will have several layers of paper and embellishments.

The class will be held on:  
Friday April 30th at 7:00 pm  *
AND  
Saturday May 1st at 1:00 pm *

The class will be about 3 hours long.

* Both classes will be making the same project – I am offering two days in order to accommodate those who cannot make it to one.

To attend this class you need to register by calling me at 204-294-4892 or by emailing me at ashleysokal@gmail.com by Wednesday April 28th to get directions and to pre-pay for the class. Please advise which date you wish to attend.

**** The fee includes the four projects, a drink and a snack at the event (please advise if you have any allergies). I am estimating that this will take about 3 hours to complete.

**** Please leave the kids at home (nursing babes are welcome).

Thank you for dropping by!
