Tips & Techniques Tuesday - April 25, 2016 - April Paper Pumpkin

So Let's Look at April's Paper Pumpkin this one had the free Stamp Set and now I don't think I have to buy stamp sets as I have so many Paper Pumpkin Sets.  Of course I will as I love the new Stampin' Up! catalog.

Here is what we will be making.

I just love it it is about 6 inches and so cute.

So let's See how to do this.

Wasn't that fun.  I really loved this month and can't wait until next month.


How many of you love getting a real card on your birthday,  not an electronic card, or the Face Book Wishes even though I love them also, but a real love to go to the mail box, open an envelope and wonder what great thing is inside?  I love getting birthday cards,  this year I only got 2 (I am sad).  Then I realized that I don't send out as many cards I have done in the past and I make them for a living. 

What can I do about this, I am joining a movement started by Stampin' Up!s own Shannon West #imbringingbirthdays back. You can join also.  Just send your friends birthday cards, really to goodness birthday cards.

To make this even better e-mail me your birth date and address to send a card and I will send you a card for your birthday.  I can't guarantee it will arrive exactly on your birthday but I will mail it the month your birthday is.  Click here to e-mail me your information.

I can’t wait to get started.

Happy Birthday to you all.

Don’t forget to e-mail me your information

Happy Stamping

Grandma's Rocking Chair - April 24, 2016 - More On-Stage

Last week I showed you the swaps I got from On-Stage now that all the Demos have access to the new catalog I can show you some of the thing I got at On-Stage and what I have done with them.

Here are some of the new pages from the new Specialty Designer Series Paper called Affectionately Yours

 Yes this is a copper in lay.

This will be my new favorite stamp set call baby Bear.  It is a Photo Realistic Stamp set.  These are my attempts at first playing with it.

WE are getting Layering Framelits this is the square set it has 19 framelits and  some are straight edge some are scallop.

Another Favorite of mine it is called Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack.

 Here are the 3 sets that I got.

16 - 17 Annual Catalog

The New Annual Catalog is Coming.  I can start ordering it to be shipped to my customers on April 1 and they will ship starting on May 9th.  Would you like a catalog of your own delivered to your door? All you have to do is have ordered at least $50 from me in the past year.  If you haven't yet now is the time and get a free Sale-A-Bration item when you do it..  One Catch - I do have folks who order and check no contact if you do that I can not get you a catalog as I do not have your contact information and I can not ship it or even know if it was you ordering. When I order I will send you an e-mail saying that one has been ordered for you.  I will finalize the order on April 28th so get your orders in before then. Click here to order now.

Tips & Techniques Tuesday - April 19th, 2016 - Cutting Pads

If you have the Big Shot you know all about Cutting Pads, or so you think.  Lately I have had some questions on the cutting pads.  I have had my Big Shot since 2008 and my pads that came with it have just started to break.  Being a Demo I use it a lot and I mean a lot.  In fact I have 2 Big Shots and at least 3 different sets of cutting pads.  One set is just for cutting and I tell you it took them a long time to get where I liked them.  I have a set I just use for embossing and a set I use that are not near a cutting surface- these are the ones I break in for my cutting.

So let me show you what I mean about my cutting pads.

Price: $11.00
Replace bent or scratched cutting pads. You can flip these over for twice the wear. Essential for cutting with the Big Shot.

* 1 pair
* 8-7/8" x 6-1/8"

* Standard size for use with most dies

Winner is
