Grandma's Rocking Chair - July 31, 2016 - No Contact and Rewards

Well today is the last few hours of the great Bonus Days from Stampin' Up!

Bonus Days! For every $50 you spend* between July 7 and July 31, you’ll get a $5 Bonus Days coupon that you can use between August 2–31, 2016. This is a great opportunity for you to get items from your wish list, whether you buy them now or with your coupons in August, so spread the word. This is the first time we have offered this type of promotion, and it’s a deal everyone will want in on!

NOTE: Bonus Days coupon codes will be delivered via email, so an email address is required to participate in this promotion. We cannot resend emails with coupon codes, so make sure you save the email and write down the codes in a safe place so you don't miss out on the coupons you earn.


*Participants will receive a Bonus Days coupon code via email for every $50 they spend in a single order (catalog price before shipping and tax).  Click Here to get yours.

Well during bonus days, I did get a few on-line orders.  Those orders were great and some were over $30 and even $50.  $30 receives one of my Reward Circles and a $50 along with Bonus Day Coupon would receive this months Monthly Project Instructions.  For July that is instructions for a Shadow Box Card.
 I send these instructions and the reward Circle information with a free handmade Thank You card when you order.  Well for one person I can not send their rewards, as they said NO CONTACT when they put their order in.  Well I can't send them a card or know they qualified for reward circles or even get the instructions for this month.  You know what else I can not send them a free catalog, either Annual, Holiday or Occasion Catalog.  The Stampin' Up! on-line ordering automatically selects NO- CONTACT and you do have to say that you want contact to have it so if you mistakenly have set it to NO CONTACT then you can only go in and change it.  If you would like to get the free catalogs and all the free rewards  but would not like to get my newsletter or updates just tell me and I will take you off my mailing list and still give you all your rewards.  I surely don't want you to miss out on everything.

Grandma's Rocking Chair - July 25, 2016 - Warped Big Shot Cutting Plates

Does your Big Shot Cutting Plates Warp?  Mine does.


This is my plate from using the precision plate. Does your look like this?

Well this week I found 2 videos to help prevent this.  Even though my other cutting plates don't look this bad they still warp.  I keep at least 3 sets of plates - one for the cutting surface of my dies, one set for the top of the sandwich that does not touch the cutting edge and one set just for embossing folders.  I also have 2 cracked plates.  They cracked after 8 years of use and I now keep them handy to use with the precision plate, because I hated mine warping.
  So I found a video that Sizzix made on how to use the plates so they don't warp.
This is

Extend The Life of Your Sizzix Cutting Pads With These 3 Tips




Even though I turn mine a lot I seem to always cut in the same place since a lot of mine you really can't place different places because of their size.

Now here is one with just the Precision Base Plate.


I hope this helps you I am going to try this to see if it helps.



Do you know that the Holiday Catalog will be out soon?  Would you like a copy of one.  Just e-mail me your mailing address and e-mail and I will send you one.  I must receive it by July 28th to get it in for the mailing.  Click here to mail me your information.

Grandma's Rocking Chair - July 17, 2016 - Vacation and projects

Been on Vacation and really had a good time.  We were gone for over 3 weeks. Started out camping but towards the end the trailer broke so then we had to cut the vacation short and hotel it for awhile.
We started out visiting Colleges for our youngest daughter we hit, University of Nebraska, University of Iowa, University of Wisconsin - Madison, Northwestern, Milwaukee School of Engineering and Michigan Tech.  Then we visited my brother for a few days in Cadillac.  We then dropped our youngest off at Michigan State Where she had a Engineering Camp and Don and I went touring Western Michigan.  Camped at Grand Haven and visited the area around there.  Then we were heading to our last campground to see our oldest daughter and the trailer would not pop up.  It was just before the weekend and we had to go get our youngest daughter and could not find anyone to fix it. So dropped it off at my cousins and made hotel reservations.  We were expecting five days of having fun and playing games and hikes and swimming and spending nights around the fire.  Just not the same in a hotel.  We did get to see the Detroit Institute of Art, which was very nice.  We went to a movie in the best movie theater I have ever been in, the Emagine, it had lounge chairs to sit in you didn't have someone directly in front of you and you could put your feet up and head back and almost fall asleep, and I had a Margarita and Don had beer and popcorn.  We did enjoy the movie also Fining Dory and it was cheaper than our movie theaters here.  I would always go to a movie if i could go that way.

We left earlier since we couldn't take the fair across Lake Michigan, Visit with our daughter was nice but not what I expected or hoped for, would have loved the 5 days camping. Oh well.  I got back and had some new toys to play with.  I just want to show you some of the things I hav ebeen making.





I am working on some more things I hope to have done tomorrow.  Don't forget the Bonus Days.


Hurry! We only have a few weeks of Bonus Days! Stampin’ Up! has never done anything like this before: You’ll get a $5 coupon (via email) by spending $50 in July.
