New! STAMPARATUS! Prepare to be amazed

I am just back from On Stage Live in Salt Lake City, Utah.  I was so lucky to see the new Stamparatus in action.  Can I just tell you?  I was Amazed!

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!

  • 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

I need product details!

Video from NYC by my BFF Kristen Lee

Hey Stampers!  

I have a fun video for you today.   My friend Kris went to NYC for vacation with her family.   She has made a fun video navigating you through the places she went.  

Of course she hit some craft places too.  Oh how I wish I could have been there to to see these craft stores.   I can’t even imagine.  

So grab a cup of coffee or tea and sit back relax and enjoy this video.  Please like and subscribe to her channel.  She has some awesome tutorials.  

Great job Kris! 


Adhering Vellum Flawlessly

Hey Stampers!

Have you ever worked with vellum?  There are some gorgeous projects out there using vellum.  It really gives a card that special something.  Right?  

Well, if you have worked with vellum you know it can be so tricky adhering it to a project.  You have to strategically place snail adhesive here or a glue dot there and pray it doesn’t show through.  It can be so frustrating at times.  You know where I am coming from.

I have a super surprise for you from fellow demonstrator, Connie Stewart .  She has created a super  fun and easy to follow video on how to adhere vellum perfectly.  Check it out below!

Happy Stamping Ya’ll!

Cards We Made In Class! And a FREE Prize!

Hey Stampers!

I wanted to share with you the cards we made in class on Wednesday.

My BFF Kristen Lee shared a video with me from Patty Bennett, a fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I immediately fell in love.

Here is the link to her video  See Video Here.

These cards use the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack , Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes and Crumb Cake Note Cards & Envelopes.

When using Patty’s method you can make 96 cards from one Serene Scenery DSP Paper Stack.  How awesome is that?  And The Note Cards and Envelopes come 20 to the pack and are pre-cut and scored.  This was such a fun and easy class.

I hope you enjoy these.  What is your favorite card?  I would love to hear.

Post a comment below with your favorite card and I will choose a winner to receive their own pre cut kit from my class.  Winner will be chosen randomly and announced on Saturday September 10, 2016.  Send your friends!

Alternative Paper Pumkin Projects

Hi Stampers!

Have you ever received your Paper Pumpkin in the mail and, at first sight,  think I don’t really like it?  I must admit I have been there myself. But, fear not, there is help out there.  Yes, there are so many talented Stampers who are thinking outside that pretty red box.

That is what my post is about today.  We don’t have to follow directions.   We certainly can if we are in love with the project.  But, we can change things up a bit.   Kinda exciting right?  Feeling like a little bit of a rebel?  Lol

I want to share with you two friends who thought outside the Paper Pumpkin box.  These are friends who I really look up to and admire.

First up is my dear friend, Oksana Semenska, from Oksana’s Creative Corner. Oksana has been my friend for many years, and is who brought me into the wonderful world of Stamping.   It took a little coaxing to get me to sign up as a demonstrator and for a while I was a “hobby” demonstrator.  But, once again Oksana encouraged me into doing more.  I don’t think I would ever have started classes or started a blog if she hadn’t gently pushed me and told me I could do it.   I am so thankful she did.

So, here are the projects Oksana came up with, as an alternative, for her January Paper Pumpkin.  I think she did a great job!  Please head over to her blog and check out more projects she has done.  I know you will love them.  Click here for Oksana’s Blog





My next friend is Elizabeth Jean Thatcher from Crafts By Happy Stamper.  I have actually only met Elizabeth in person once.  It was at the Leadership Convention in Orlando.  We actually got to go on stage together for getting a title promotion.  I was so thankful to have someone to go up there with. Lol   Along with Oksana, we are a part of Tami White’s Team Stamp It group and Elizabeth has also helped me with my blog.  I didn’t understand the whole “blog hop permalink thing”.  Elizabeth was kind enough to talk me through it.   I still have my piece of paper I was frantically writing notes on, as she was explaining permalinks to me.  It’s my safety net when doing blog hops. Lol.

Here are the alternative projects Elizabeth has come up with.  She also has a video tutorial showing how to make the absolutely adorable mailbox.  How do you come up with this stuff Elizabeth?  Please head over to her blog, where you can download a free template to make the mailbox and check out more awesome projects and videos.  Subscribe and like her YouTube channel so you won’t miss any videos. Click here for Elizabeth’s Blog
