Linda’s Annual Paper Shares


Hi All!  

I’ve had several ask me if I will be offering my annual 6 x 6 paper samplers. 

Yes I will!   I just need to wait a few days to be compliant with policy. 

Per Stampin’ Up, we cannot post those and take payment until 7 days before the new catalog begins on June 2nd.  

Watch for my post on May 26th If you would like to participate. 

I love many of the new papers from the new catalog and I am sure you will too!


More Welcome Home cards….

Thank you for all the nice notes, cards and emails I have received since we moved.  It’s made the transition much easier!  Here are a few more that accumulated in my mailbox while I was in Hawaii:

Cathy and Sue

Look at the cute one below with my house number on it?

And now for a bit of non-stamping related news….

I’ve been experiencing new species of everything here in North Carolina since I moved here a few weeks ago.

This amazing moth was on our garage door for about 24 hours:

It’s called a Luna Moth, and it’s one of the world’s largest moths. This one was almost 4″ across!   Sadly they are only live 3 days to week once they have wings and can reproduce.  Look at the antennae!  The underside body is white and furry (yes, he let me lift up his wing to see:)  I wonder what I’ll get to see today outside. It’s been a fun week of new critters including a salamander and a Carolina wolf spider.

last day hawaii

Mahalo, Hawaii!

As we were waiting for our shuttles to take us to the airport, we had a nice rainbow appear.  The breezes were amazing the entire time we were there.  It was a looooong trip home but it feels good to be back.


Stampin’ Up New Catalogs!

When I arrived, my new Stampin’ Up catalogs were at my door!  Since the time change is 6 hours off, Matt and I were awake at midnight and worked til 5 am to get them all packaged up for the mail today.  If you are expecting one from me and do not receive it by Thursday, let me know.

Good ones this week!

Since there are only a few days left for the Occasions catalog, SU must have extra Birthday Bash paper!

I know you will ask me about the chalkboard paper and ink.  I like the chalkboard paper with white ink but the colors are a little dull for me.  Maybe I need to play with them more.

The stars set is great for the holidays and works with our star framelits.


Remember we only have a few days left for the Retiring Stamps and Accessories!

LH retired List

Stampin’ Up will make more of the retiring stamps until May 26th and accessories are while supplies last.

Shop HERE for those.

That’s all for me today!  Laundry, more unpacking of boxes and then organizing the craft room today in the new house.  Sounds fun, doesn’t it?  All except the laundry…

Stampin’ Up! Hawaii day 4 and 5 

Aloha! Yesterday was a relaxing and non-stamping day.  We went to a state park called Hanauma Bay, which was reported to have excellent snorkeling and sightseeing. It did not disappoint! 

Dawn, Janet and I found a shady spot under a big mangrove tree.  I was totally enamored with the little mongoose running around! Apparently Hawaii brought the man to take care of the rats, which are nocturnal The mongoose are not :-).  I’m happy to hear that Hawaii is snake free and I did not see a single rat however there were so many feral cats around, no wonder the rats are scarce 


After coming back from the beach, Matt took a ukulele lesson:

  He’s a drummer but loves all music!

Spinning the wheel yesterday and the hospitality room and I won these new adhesive backed, metal rimmed pearls! These are going to be one of my favorite new accessories in the new Stampin Up catalog. (the yellow that you see is the paper for the adhesive on the back)


  A great pillow gift to document our Hawaii vacation is a project life stamp set and collection. 

Day 5 

Today was a fun Stamping day for the demonstrators on the trip as we had our share fair.  Stampin Up sent several demonstrators new product in advance to create some fun projects for us. I won’t show all of them as many will use them for class resources but I will show you a few:)

Eldonna Epp is one of my favorites and is so talented! She used our new  Bohemian designer series paper and a sweet match card Post-it note holder for tagging pages in our new catalog



My good friend Georgia Giguere came up with a really cool pop up card using a new stamp set that coordinates with the hand picked framelits 


Michelle Zindorf   Showed a cool shaker box and tag…gorgeous!     

Stampin Up’s own Sarah Douglass showed how to extend the hamburgers box die and made some cute projects with it:    

 Tonight we have our final dinner at the Pearl Harbor USS Missouri.  I believe it’s supposed to be a barbecue of some sort, so I’m feeling hungry already! 
Thanks for tuning in while I’m on vacation. Go stamp something! Linda
