Christmas Stamp a Stack Buffet Style

I'm shaking up the remaining Stamp a Stacks because I know that everyone has different tastes and I have way too many ideas :)  This way, you pick the cards that you want to do.  But you need to do that ahead of time so that I can cut everything that you need for your cards.  It's still 12 cards/envelopes for a $50 minimum order or you can pay the set price listed on my website.  You must RSVP ..and be sure to do it right away for all October classes!  Then, let me know the numbers of the cards that you choose and how many of each one that you want. There is a limit of 4 designs you can choose per class.  Space is limited at some locations so it's first come, first served.
Note that 11-14 are an extra $1 per card

Blog Hop, Anything but the Holidays

I''m so excited to be a part of this blog hop and want to share a fun project I came up with from the Holiday set....Carols of Christmas Bundle.
 This card uses both the stamps and the border die from the Carols of Christmas Bundle.  I think it's fun to see how holiday stamps can be so versatile, especially this set with the cute little accents.
To cut just half of the border die, I placed the top clear plate just part way on the can see that it cut just a bit more than I wanted  on the top left, but you'll have to look really close

I hope that you enjoy and that you'll click below to go to the next page

Daisy Tips

I have not had any trouble with my Daisy punch but in case you have trouble getting it stuck, I found this helpful information from another demo, Stephanie Flath plus a few that I've added.
1.) If you plan to STAMP the daisy and then punch, mount your stamp on the block so there are 2 petals aiming straight up and down and stamp it in that position. (No troubles later cuz that’s the way the punch is positioned.)
2.) Do not punch really close to the edge as the edge will bend into the punch and could cause 'stickage'
3.) A 5 ½” x 2 ¾” pc of cs is the perfect size to fit/punch out 2 daisies. You can get 6 from an 8 ½” x 11” pc of cs. Plus starting with a larger pc helps punch more easily.
4.) I always use my punches upside down so I can see what/where I’m punching.
5.) When you punch the daisy, PULL YOUR PUNCH AWAY FROM THE SIDE—rather than from the bottom. I don’t know why, but it doesn’t seem to catch as easily that way!
6.) If you forget step 5 or it still gets stuck, “continue to punch your way out.” 

Happy Daisy Punching!!!

New Catalog Countdown....Day 1 It's here!

I want to show you an adorable video that SU made to show us a few of the cute things that are available.  I hope you'll take a second to watch...really quick.

So, I have one more stamp set to show you before the catalog opens by 12 noon MT today.
 I posted this one yesterday to show you the designer paper used but today, I'd like to focus on the die cuts...Lovely Words.
 This hugs card is my swap for our Joyful Heart Meeting this Saturday...I think I borrowed this idea from my friend Trevis Bossaler!  This uses our new In-Color Stack of Designer paper...several designs in each of the 5 colors.  It's a very pretty stack and because it has more sheets, it's a little easier for us demonstrators to make a project for a class!  But our customers will also love the colors and designs that go with each of our new In colors.
I didn't have a project done with the lovely die (it's in a heart shape but I wanted to show how each of these words can be snipped out of their connecting shape and used alone). So I just adjusted a card that I already had from a meeting..done in the new Powder Pink color (This card also has a paper from the stack I just talked about!).

I wanted to add a black accent but didn't have anything so I took one of our new Clear Faceted Gems and used a sharpie on it!  It worked and still has a shimmer to it! Can you tell I'm excited?  You can see the same gems on the hugs card...uncolored.

Here you can see all 3 thinlets  #143733 
Fresh Florals In Color Stack   #144131  

I hope that you will check out the new catalog HERE

Please let me know if you need a copy....they are FREE to my customers...can be picked up at my home or any of the classes.  I will be happy to send you one for $7.50 and then you will get a coupon for $7.50 off of your next $30 or more order. Contact me now so I can get it to you right away.
And you can shop HERE as soon as the catalog goes 12 noon MT today!

Count Down Day 2--Color Theory

The Color Theory Paper Stack is really different and lots of fun...Let me show you a few ideas:
When you glance through the catalog, the colors and designs in this Stack of Paper really jump out at you
The thin olive strip on the leaf card is from the stack and both pieces on the chair card are from the pack

 the design behind the friend cut out (Lovely Words Thinlets) is another design from the pack and the daisy is cut from the same pattern as the old olive piece on the leaf card.
You will soon be able to get your hands on this too!
