Got storage?

Got storage?

It’s here!  How do you store your “good” markers?  I bet you have some that you don’t let the kids use because they were a little more expensive than crayolas and they are just for you for crafting, right?  Well they can be awkward to store.  I have all the colors of the Stampin Blends and I absolutely LOVE them; sometimes I put them in a pretty jar, sometimes I put them in an empty Paper Pumpkin box, and sometimes they lay loose in a drawer and eventually one (or 5) go missing.  NO MORE!  I’m so excited for our custom storage options, I am going to start with lots of marker trays.  Here’s what we have, and you can order right now!  Everything is interchangeable to make it fit your space.  Got storage?  Yes we do! (you’re welcome)

You’re the cat’s meow!

You’re the cat’s meow!

In March, we had a fun Stamp Camp that featured cats and dogs…we made 5 fun projects and here’s one of them. The cat punch is in the annual catalog and the stamp set is in the occasions catalog.  I sure hope it carries over, I just love our pet sets!

Just look at all the great stamps that are included in the set.  Believe it or not, this set is only $16.  Check out my online store if you want to shop!

I just had a thought…I bet that cute ball of yarn would be great to stamp on tags for knitters or crocheters…handmade with love!

Have a super day!  -Debbi

New storage coming soon!

New storage coming soon!

If you are a crafter, then you probably have a crafting space (even it means dragging everything out to your kitchen table each time you craft)…and we never have enough crafting space, right!?  Well, get ready for Storage by Stampin Up!  Our new customizable storage system is going to be an amazing solution for how to store our great new stamp pads, Stampin Write markers, Stampin Blends markers, ink refills, and even things like spools of ribbon or other miscellaneous items.  I can’t wait to show you more, but here’s a peek just to get you drooling:

Meanwhile, there are only a few more days left to take advantage of the free goodies you get during Sale-A-Bration, what’s left on your wish list??

Windshield wipers!

Windshield wipers!

Sale-a-bration might be my favorite time of year… for every $50 order you get to choose a free item from the SAB flyer. We made this card in class with the So Hoppy Together set from Stampin Up. The playful frogs are great for lots of occasions!

This style card is called a”windshield wiper” card because when you pull on the ends, a little surprise card swishes up. It still folds flat to fit inside of our regular envelopes though, and no extra postage required.

Speaking of windshield wipers, we’ve been using them a lot around here lately. We had mounds of snow, then lots of rain, and now…you guessed it-flooding! I have water coming under the door into my stamping room but that’s not much to complain about compared to our neighbors who can’t even get in or out of their driveway. Hopefully the frost leaves the ground soon and it all soaks away.

Have a great day, spring is right around the corner… can’t wait!

Choosing which products we will use when new catalogs come out is so exciting!  I really had a tough time picking which where my favorites this time, so I bought almost everything!  I’m going to double up stamp sets used in each Stamp Camp for a while because if I don’t, we’ll never get a chance to use them all!  Our first Stamp Camp will be all about Valentines, Weddings and Anniversaries with 2 “love”-ly stamp sets…here’s all the info you need.

“Cool”postage

“Cool”postage

I stopped in at our post office today to get stamps… aren’t these COOL?! And you’ll never believe it – they are scratch and sniff! I can’t wait to send some fun mail using these. If I could make my own scratch and sniff stamps I think I would pick coffee scent. What would you pick?

I can do hard things

I can do hard things

Are you a procrastinator like me? I use the excuse that I’m better under pressure, which sometimes works… but not always. One of the things I’ve put off is – you guessed it… blogging!

I’ve challenged myself to blog more, and here’s my first post in a while. I made this card for a swap and when I do swaps I’m always trying to make sure I have enough of the same paper so they all match. An easy way to make designer series paper stretch is to cut it at 4×4. For this card I sliced 1/4″ off each end then cut at a diagonal through the middle. The thin strip makes it look like there is another layer but it’s just the back side of the floral paper.

I love these pretty colors together, and the greeting on the front serves as a reminder for me to do those hard things I’ve been putting off.

Have a fantastic day!

Debbi
