I know that I have been a bad blogger this year. I am going to "try" to start posting more often. No promises though; life is just so busy the past few months.

Stampin' Up will be releasing their new Summer Mini on May 1st. As a rep, I have had the opportunity to have a sneak peek. I haven't had a chance to play with the sets yet though. "Sweet Scoops" and "Go, Graduate" are my must haves from this catalog.

Here are some pictures, courtesy of SplitCoast Stampers (I quite often check out this site to get inspiration to make cards):
