Quilt Square

Hi everyone,
I am so excited because I finished my first quilt sqaure (hot pad) and I think it turned out fabulous! I used the five point star die in my Big Shot to cut out the fabric petals for the flower and the Circle Scallop #2 die to cut the leaf and center of the flower. It was so easy to make. I would love to plan a class so that you could make this same adorable hot pad! Shoot me an email if you are interested in learning!

I'm very excited to announce that color renovation is coming to Stampin' Up! To stay up-to-date with the trends in color, we have come out with a refreshing, updated color palette! All of our standard color families are changing--30 current colors will be retired in June, some of the current In Colors will become permanent colors, some old favorite In Colors are coming back and some new, permanent, colors are being introduced starting in July! (See next page) There will also be new In Colors (as usual) that will be available for two years instead of only one!

Here are the colors that will only be available through the end of June. Now is a great time to stock up on card stock, ink refills, markers, etc before they are gone-- Be sure to click on the picture to see the complete list.
