As this Occasions mini comes to an end I have a few sets I just did not get to use as much as I wanted.  Its Mouthwatering, You send me Soaring and Bordering on Romance.  I am hoping 1 makes it to the new catalog!

So here is a sample:

I stamped each watermelon slice in Lucky Limeade and Melon Mambo.  then cut them and adhered them together.  I was not loving the smeary look I was getting when I used my markers.  
Seeds are colored with the Early Espresso marker.  

Stamps: Mouthwatering, Sweet cake
Paper: whisper white, Melon Mambo
Ink: Lucky Limeade, melon Mambo
Accessories: Old Olive 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon

Retiring Definitely Decorative can be seen HERE

NOTE:    Classic Stampin’ Pads are being reconfigured to feature a new, firm foam pad.
This is not a color change. The firm foam pads are a product improvement that will provide better ink coverage for your stamps, and longer life for your ink pads.

Cardstock & Markers:  Some products like 12" x 12" card stock or individual Stampin’ Write Markers will be altered so that not all colors will be offered individually (some will, but not all).  Adjustments will be made to the way in which some lower-selling products are offered.

I found a backpack scrapbook tutorial here.  But it was too small.  So I adjusted the measurements.

inside pages: 4 x 11.  score at 4.5, 5.5 and 6.5, then trim 1/8 of an inch from each end.

Time to say goodbye to some stamps!

Dates: April 15-May 31, 2012 (select items available while supplies last)


Hundreds of stamps and accessories from the 2011-2012 catalogs are retiring, and this is your chance to get them before they're gone. Many products are only available while supplies last, so be sure to get your orders in early!

When you view the retiring stamps list, you may notice it's longer than in years past. During this transition to the new annual catalog, there are a higher number of stamps being refreshed and replaced than usual. While many stamps are going away, most are being replaced so that the breadth of our stamp lines is every bit as broad as ever!

This color combo is one of my daughters FAVORITES! Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight!

Stamps: Bright Blossoms, Delightful Dozen
Paper: Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, whisper white
