Swaps to Share!

I’m a lucky stamper to be able to swap 10 cards each month with a group of demonstrators around the states.  I love getting my box each month to see what they created! Here are a few from this month.  (I love them all but have a full day ahead of me and have to limit today!)

Kimberly Allen is a master at the coloring with any medium and now here with the Blendies, just perfect!

See how she used the light gray for shadows around the flowers?  Adds so much.  She used Corner Garden, which looks like nothing when you see it in black and white in the catty :)

I love this bird because it’s so realistic! This one was stamped by Carole Gilmore using the stamp set, An Open Heart:

I tried to use the SU Stencils to create a plaid using this set, but I don’t think it was too successful.

What do you think?

A few new item from SU and the weekly Deals:

you're wonderful pp

Another Photopolymer Set, You’re Wonderful, is just too sweet!   You can print the flyer for true to life size!

18 stamps, 23.95  It looks like the words are curved to fit in the banners.

youre wonderful pp

A new Photopolymer set called 25 Days popped up today!  #135041  $25.95. 

25 days photopolymer

 The description says “Make the holidays count by counting down the days with this creative photopolymer set. Perfect for stamping advent calendars, it’s sure to be a centerpiece of your season. Set quantity: 25.”  We needed a current one for people who want to make advents this year, so this is a nice addition!

The Weekly Deals really have some Deals this week! 

That 2″ punch is new this year and it fits nice and snug into the 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle punch!  So does the 1-3/4 but this is a bit larger and looks nice! And the glitter….we are heading into the holidays so glitter will be upon us soon….literally!

Wondrous Wreath Tips Video

wr 2

The Wondrous Wreath is a new photopolymer stamp set in the Holiday catalog.  I was going to make a quick video to show a few tips but then Stampin’ Up beat me to it!

Here Brandi from the corporate office shows how this set comes with a new alignment tab feature, which really helps us from turning and turning the framelits to cut out our images!

The tabs are a brilliant addition to these stamps!  Really helps to line these up, which only makes our projects look better.

If you planning on a large order or you have some stampin’ buddies to buddy up with on an order,

there is a special stamp set you get free when you have a $300 order.

It’s really a good greetings set so I guess that why they named it

GOOD GREETINGS!

Square Framelits on sale!

Thank you, Stampin’ Up for putting the Square framelits on sale!

Somewhere along the line, I lost ONE of the square framelits in my set.

Probably went into the trash with some scraps of paper and it’s the one I use the most.

I knew I’d have to buy another set and I kept waiting for them to go on sale….

Video: Gift Box Punch Board!

gift box Linda Heller

I have a Holiday Catalog sneak peek for you!

On page 5 of the Stampin’ Up Holiday catalog, there is a new toy called the Gift Box Punch Board. SU partnered again with We R Memory Keepers to bring on another paper crafting must-have to create fun boxes in 15 sizes.  The largest is a 4″ x 4″ x 4″ box made with a 12×12 sheet of card stock. The smallest is 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″ made from a 6×6 piece card stock.  I’m still experimenting with what else it can do!

Those of you that have ordered from me this past year should be getting yours in the mail any day now.  I hear reports that some arrived yesterday! If you are new here and would like one, just email me with your name and address.  (if you are a demonstrator or have a demonstrator already, please ask them for one)

The Holiday Catalog goes LIVE on August 28th!  I can’t post a link here to the online version until the 28th but I know you are going to be delighted with all the new stamps and accessories!  I’ve already spent over my budget for the preorders….

HolidayCatalogTH_0714_NA

I made a video for those who are new to the Gift Box Punch Board:

If you are viewing this from your email, you may need to come to blog HERE to view video!

I know this will be a fun new tool to play with and I hope to find some other fun uses for it, too!

Stampin’ Up said there were new items on the Clearance Rack so I went to see what must-haves were there.

Remember these from last year’s holiday catty?  I LOVE these little Old Olive bows on a clip!
