New Packaging For Dies

The Stampin' Up! Dies have new packaging!


And a new name!


They're still in a plastic envelope, but the inserts are now 5 x 7" or 6 x 6". The envelopes are slightly larger.


They've changed the adhesive that holds the dies to the insert, too! It's not as sticky.

Pictures From My NEW CATALOG Open House

THANK YOU to everyone who braved the thunderstorms Tuesday night and came to my New Catalog Open House! In case you missed it, I took some pictures just before everyone started arriving. Let me know if you need a catalog!


Stamps (almost 100 sets!), punches, tools, inks, embellishments, and some miscellaneous


Designer Series Paper, card stock, Darla's last ink caddy (now sold), catalogs, and cards


View from the other side- 8 very full boxes of cards!


New products- In Colors, Designer Series Paper samplers (everyone loved looking at them!), punches, and a few stamp sets


Display of cards using new products! Some I made, most are swaps


And the hit of the night was my Pink Lemonade Cookies!


Here's the recipe:

1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar, plus additional for rolling
3/4 cup powdered lemonade mix (I used pink lemonade!)
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
1 lemon, juice of (I cheated and used the stuff in the plastic lemon!)
lemon zest (I didn't have any)
2 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 350°. 
Cream butter, sugar, and lemonade mix. 
Add egg, vanilla extract, lemon extract, lemon juice, and lemon zest and mix well.
Add flour and baking soda and mix.
I used a medium cookie scoop- roll dough into balls and roll in sugar, place on cookie sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. I baked mine for 10, until they were just set and golden on the bottom, then left them on the cookie sheets for about 2 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.

Makes 36 cookies.

Recipe from Country Time Lemonade

I bought a big canister of pink lemonade mix for John so he could take some in the truck and mix it whenever he wanted. There was a lot left, so I Googled "lemonade mix recipes" and found this one. They are so soft, mostly sweet but with a little tangy from the lemon flavors. I need buy a lemon and make them again with the juice and zest from it!
