Have you put together a jigsaw puzzle lately? Since we have more “home” time, it’s fun, especially if you make your own!

The Love You To Pieces Stamp Set will be retiring June 2, and is one of the Last-Chance products. Follow the links at the bottom of my post to see the entire list.

I edited the bottom of this post to include exciting May news!


One piece at a time


I began by cutting the puzzle pieces with a Puzzle Pieces Die and three patterns of Ornate Gardens Designer Paper. Then, I layered them for thickness and placed them on Dimensionals.

Next, I stamped three lines from the Swirly Frames Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and adhered this to a Mossy Meadow card base.

TIP: Using the Stamparatus insured my lines would be straight and even.


The sentiment, “one piece at a time” seems apropos during COVID-19; a reminder that we need to take “one day at a time.”

Now for exciting news!

First of all, this month’s Host Code gift is something I know you’ll want in your collection. It’s the new, fabulous, Ornate Floral Embossing Folder! I’ve already used it on a number of my cards, and it adds gorgeous texture. Just add my Host Code (DGMYPXET) in the box provided when you order a minimum of $50.00 in the month of May, and I will send the embossing folder to you in June.


Secondly, I’m having a drawing for two items: the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set AND the Small Bloom Punch. Your name will be entered in the drawing when you place a minimum $100.00 order in May.


This is Stampin’ Up’s list of retiring items, so click here, then click on “Last-Chance Products” in my store. Order those bundles now while you get the 10% savings, and earn the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder from me, plus a chance to win the Small Bloom Punch and Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set.

Note: the last three items in my Product list are “Last-Chance” items.


Last, but not least, if you are a customer of mine, you will be receiving the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog sometime in May, with ordering beginning June 3rd. The catalog happens to have a brand new stamp set (page 48) that coordinates with the Small Bloom Punch!

My birthday is in May, so I’m especially happy to have you celebrating with me!

 May we all remember to “take one piece (day) at a time.”
