Santa's Sleigh dies

Hi Everyone! Well the Online Extravaganza is in full swing and I thought I would share a few of my favorites that are on sale.  First up are the many many dies that are on sale!  I love this Santa's sleigh die set and you don't even need to have the coordinating stamp set to love them (but they are cute too!).  On this card I just used the dies and a Christmas sentiment from another set, since discontinued but you can use other stamps you may have. You could even substitute the gold ribbon that is on sale right now for an even better deal. 
Here is a link to this older video.
Also on sale are thees awesome paper punches.  I love punches so anytime there is one on sale I am happy.   The holly punch is a great accent for cards or tags or scrapbooks, so worth having around.
And this cookie cutter! Love it! 
Also on sale are the dragonfly dies and I just really like dragonflies.  So pretty and they eat mosquitoes so what's not to love?
The coffee dies are on sale and I just love these but on this one you should really grab the Merry Cafe set as well, so much fun and you probably know someone who needs a Starbucks gift card for Christmas right?
So check out all that is on sale by clicking here and really take a good look at the dies!
Online Extravaganza here!!

Hi Everyone!  Today I would like to share a fun little treat that you can make for a co-worker or friend, Teacher or to use at table favors this Thanksgiving.  It is called Blessing Mix. 

There is a little 'recipe' card on the back that talks about the meaning behind the mix. I have a document here if you would like to print it out.!AnY3MAyuZrDFygfMFfbCI-_vGodS
And here is a quick video explaining how to put it all together and what's inside.  I hope you like it!

Today's the day! Stamparatus Day!

Today's the day. You can start reserving your Stamparatus at 2PM Mountain Time. Start by creating an account, if you don't already have one, by clicking here...…/default.aspx&dbwsdemoid=0095176
You can create a code before 2:00PM (MT) so you are all ready if you want. The reserve page isn't even showing up just yet, and wont until 2:00 (MT) but by having an account at the store you'll be all set. If you've shopped online with me before, you probably already have an account. This is the first time Stampin' Up! has had a product release with a 'Reserve' offering, so I am not sure exactly how it will all go, but I kinda think these will sell out fast.

You wont be charged until it actually ships around February 1st, so I';m not sure I will even get a notification that you've reserved one, so if you do. let me know, here or Facebook or email.  I don't really 'need' to know, I'm just curious to see how this all goes.  I know I will be at the SU site at 2:00, well 3:00 my time as I am in the Central Time Zone, which is exactly when I am supposed to be picking my kids up from school, so I guess I won't actually be there until 3:15! I hope they don't sell out of the first wave by then!!

Hi everyone!  I am just back from Salt Lake City and the Stampin' Up! OnStage event where I saw a ton of new things coming out way! This is always such a fun event and I loved every minute of it.
One of the new products coming our way is the Stamparatus! I just love the name, a combination of Stamp and Apparatus. This stamp positioning tool is really fun and easy to use and will be in the next Annual Catalog that comes out in June.  However, Stampin' Up! knows that you want it now and so they are doing a reserve release in just a couple days.  They are concerned about back orders with the excitement around this new tool, and so they are trying this new way to place an order. It will work with limited time to make your reservation, sort of like standing in line for concert tickets.  Make your reservation now, and it will get shipped as soon as it arrives in the warehouse. Your credit card will not be charged until it ships. 

It’s big news when something breaks the mold and changes everything. The Stamparatus will change the way you stamp, and before long, you’ll wonder how you crafted without it!
Why do YOU need one? You’ll fall in love with stamping all over again when you learn everything you can do with it!
  • Make multiples with ease
  • Consistently stamp crisp, clean images
  • If you want a darker impression, apply more ink and restamp—no need to start over
  • Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money
  • Easily create 2-step, 3-step, and 4-step stamped images using reversible plates
  • Develop new and specialized stamping techniques with adjustable stamping plates and precision placement

  • Foam mat to use with photopolymer stamps
  • Rulers and gridlines for quick measuring

  • 2 reversible plates: a total of 4 surfaces to work with
  • 2 magnets to hold the paper in place
  • Magnet storage areas
  • Retail Price–$49.00 USD/$65.00 CAD
On November 16th you will be able to make your reservation.  You will need to create or use your customer account and enter credit card information, but you will NOT be charged until it ships.

Your going to love this new tool   So get in line to purchase! You'll be creating in the new year before you know it! 
While you are waiting, check out this fun new video from Stampin' Up! that shares some tips and trick and lets  you know why this stamp positioner is the best on the market.

Contact me with any questions! I'll provide a link to the reservation on November 16th.  I anticipate that the reserve on the November 16th will be met within a few days, so even though it says that the reserve window is open until the 30th, I think you should act ASAP on the 16th.

 This card features a fun see though window, perfect to show the front and back of that cute little deer.

I made a video to show you how to make this card step by step...

Here are a few other versions of this card.
