There's A Card Thursday - April 30, 2015 - Father's Day Card

OK  I know it is a little early but thought you would like to get started early for Father's Day. This card is a great Father's Day card or you can use it as an any man card just change the sentiment.

I used some of this years Sale-A-Bration paper and it looks like fish scales.

It is a fun card and use the collage technique.

So let's see how to do it.




Product List

So do you like it.  I may make another one later but I like this man card.  I really find it hard to make cards for men and this one makes it easy.

Don't forget.

Grandma's Rocking Chair - April 26, 2015 - Retirement List Suprises

Today's Grandma's Rocking Chair Questions has to do with Stampin' Up!s Retirement Lists - What surprised you for being on the Retirement List.

Well not to much surprised me.  I was expecting a large number of stamp sets and I really am glad that Lovely as A tree has survived again.  Of course we knew the 2013 -2015 In colors were retiring.  I was a little surprised that they retired the 12 x 12 single color Card Stock ( already sold out).  They still have the assortments and we will see if they will put out different single colors but I bet not.

I guess my biggest surprise was the adhesives both the Sticky Strip and the Transfer Adhesive Sheets. Now you all know  I love my glue dots but for 3-D items you can not beat Sticky Strip and if you want something to hold it will hold.  I use it a lot  but for classes it was expensive so used Glue dots mostly.  I did like it and use it a lot.  I hung picture frames with it.  Most of my 3 - D projects were put together with it.  It really was the best adhesive for the long haul. Snail or Fast Fuse just don't hole like it especially in the dry climates.  I hope they come up with something better but I haven't found anything like it yet.

Transfer Adhesive Sheets. Now this really surprised me as this is the first year they carried this.

At first I didn't think I would like them then I realized for die cut letters or intricate designs like the butterfly or doily this was the only thing to use to to get them to stick, without getting everything gunky.  I came to love these.  I know that there are other types of these around and I hope they will offer ones in the new catalog.  Other than that I am stock piling them just in case.

A lot of things have already sold out on the retirement lists Click here to see what is left and to order yours now.
