A 50th Anniversary was the perfect excuse to pull out my lovely Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper to make a card. After all, what is the symbol for 50th Anniversary? Gold To personalize my card, I die cut 50 from Gold Foil Sheets using my Playful Alphabet Dies.
Each package of Forever Gold Specialty paper contains 3 sheets of gold card fronts (6 fronts per sheet) and 3 sheets of golden foliage accents. All I can say is GORGEOUS!
Behind the gold is Forever Greenery Designer Paper. Elegant greenery with painted watercolor patterns will give your projects an organic feel. One side of each sheet has large, leafy designs; the other side has painted patterns.

With just a few weeks left until all the 2020 Stampin' Up! Retiring Products are gone, I wanted to revisit the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set. There are just so, so many beautiful sentiment stamps in this stamp set. Today's hand-stamped card is for a friend who just celebrated 20 years of marriage.
Just look at all the occasions covered with these lovely sentiments! Plus, the fonts in the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set are happy and fun.
I arranged the sentiments after stamping and cutting them out using the Stitched Rectangle dies. This die set really is a workhorse in the Craft Room. The Pretty Peacock ink on Purple Posy card stock matches the colors in the Best Dressed Designer Paper (also retiring).
All retiring products are available While Supplies Last or until June 2, 2020. Scoop up your favorites before they are gone.

#1 Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Question Answered
No, you do not have to hold parties, teach classes, start a blog, or "sell" Stampin' Up!. You can simply enjoy the discount and other Stampin' Up! Demonstrator benefits, but....you might want to show off all your new toys with your friends and stamp with them and maybe share some of your lovely catalogs that come free with your kit. Spread the joy!
I was talking to a dear friend the other day about her daughter's upcoming wedding. So naturally, our conversation turned to DIY Wedding Favor Ideas. I suggested that she think about using the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Dies to make her Wedding Favors. The discussion was still on my mind when I created the Meant to Be Wedding Favors for today's blog post.
DIY Wedding Favors Tips
I started by cutting my Mini Curvy Keepsakes Boxes from Golden Honey Designer Paper (Free Sale-a-Bration Gift). See the video at the end of this post to see just how easy these boxes are to make.
Next, I stamped and heat embossing my "Meant to Be" tags using the Meant to Bee stamp set. After heat embossing, I punched my tags using the Label Me Fancy Punch.
To complete my tags, I stamped black and white bees using the Honey Bee Stamp set. After they were stamped, I cut the bees out using my Detailed Bees Dies.
I wasn't quite ready to stop crafting, so using the same supplies I made a matching Anniversary Card. The little flower was super simple to make using the Small Blossom Punch (Free Sale-a-Bration Gift).
Here's a peek at the inside of my Anniversary Card.
The Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies (#150644) were carried over from the 2019 Holiday Catalog because they were so popular. Watch the video above to see just how easy they are to put together. I love that you can get 4 Mini Curvy Keepsake Boxes from a single 12" x 12" sheet of paper!
