Video Week: Soft Sayings All Inclusive Card Kit

softsayingsNot only is it still Video Week but it’s also Simple Saturday!  What can be more simple than an all-inclusive kit?!  Yes!  The Soft Sayings Kit is all-inclusive and comes with EVERYTHING (except adhesive) that you will need to make the 20 projects!  Even the clear block for the photopolymer stamps!

I brought this kit with me last month on my trip to the cabin.  No…I didn’t attempt to put it together in the car but I did put it together one afternoon in the cabin.  The directions were clear and easy to follow.  If you look at the picture closely you can see that you get to make three different sizes of cards.

The little stamp set that comes with the kit has some great sentiments that fit perfectly on the different card sizes.  There’s also a couple of leaves and flowers.

One of the great things about this kit is that you can purchase a refill!  The refill comes with everything the kit contains except the stamp set, clear block, ink spot and the box.

Check out the video below and see how easy it is to make these cards!  Oh…did I mention what a great gift this would make?!!  🙂

Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!

Video Week: You Move Me Bundle

you move me bundleYou will definitely have to check out todays video!  The You Move Me Bundle is amazing.  I’ve actually never seen anything like it.  The picture to the left here doesn’t do the bundle justice.  Watch the video!

Why do you need to watch the video?  The butterfly actually will look like it’s fluttering it’s wings if you pull the white card stock with the stamped image up out of the pocket.  This is one of those things you have to see to believe.  Check it out!  These products are pretty fun.

If you like versatility in your projects you’ll get it with this bundle.  There are plenty of other images and framelits besides the ones that show motion.  You can see the stamp set and framelits as well as more details about the bundle in my online store.

Video Week: Love Today Planner Kit

planner2Oh my!  This planner is beautiful!  I put mine together yesterday and can’t wait to begin to use it!

There are pages, stickers, pockets, photo protector pages and sticky notes.  You will be amazed at how fabulous this planner is!

You have to check out the video below because these photos don’t do it justice!

The month pages don’t have dates on them so you can start using the planner whenever you want.  The months have a planner1month-at-a-glance page as well as weekly pages.

Not only will this planner be great for your own use but it will also make a fabulous gift!  I’m actually contemplating giving them to my sisters for their birthday in a few weeks.

I know you’re going to love it.  Don’t take my word for it though.  Watch the video and see just how fabulous this planner is….did I mention one of the best parts?  You can buy a refill for it!  The refill comes with everything you find in the original planner kit except the 3-ring binder cover.  How great is that?!

You can find out more details about the planner and purchase it in my online store.  Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!

Video Week: Embossing Paste

Welcome to the second installment in Video Week.  Today I want to share with you a product that I had never heard of before I saw the new Annual Catalog:  Embossing Paste.  I know, some of you are asking “have you been living under a rock?”.  I guess this isn’t a new craft product but it’s new to me.

Embossing Paste is pretty cool.  I haven’t actually played with it yet but I’m anxious to give it a try.  It looks like so much fun and it really looks easy to use.  Check out the video below and let me know if this is a product that you might like to try.

You can purchase decorative masks to use with the Embossing Paste but I’m also wondering if you could kind of create your own masks with punches and thinlits.  Hmmm….I’m definitely going to give it a try.  I’ll let you know how things turn out.

Another fun thing you can do with Embossing Paste is actually color it with Stampin’ Up! reinkers.  Did you catch that in the video?  Too fun!

I might have to go grab my Embossing Paste and give it a try!  If you want to purchase your own Embossing Paste you can do it right in my online store.

Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!

Video Week: Oh, So Eclectic Bundle

Hello!  I have to admit that I didn’t really get a chance to play with all my new toys yesterday.  I did get them put away but in order to do that there was a lot of cleaning up and organizing to do. Yuck!  I really wanted to play.  It is a good feeling to be organized though.

I’m calling this week Video Week on the blog.  Stampin’ Up! has some great videos out about some of their new products and I want to share them with you.

Oh, So Electic.0517The first video I want to share with you is about the Oh, So Eclectic Bundle.  I used this stamp set on the card I shared a few days ago.  There is so much you can do with this stamp set and COORDINATING framelits.  Here’s a simple card  that I made using just the stamp set and the new Fresh Fig In-Color.

Be sure to check out the samples at the end of the video.  There are some really cute ones that I’m anxious to try.

You can check out more details on this bundle here.  Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!

Watercolor Pencils

There are so many great products in the new Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog that comes out in just a couple of days.  One of the products I was excited to check out were the Watercolor Pencils!  I’m so glad we have a new coloring option.  I really miss the Blendabilities Markers.  I’ve played a little bit with the pencils but I’m by no means an expert.  I need to work with them a little more.

Here’s a great video that gives you a little overview on how to use the pencils.  You’re definitely going to want to put them on your wish list!

Have a great day and Happy Stamping!

Happy New Year!

new-yearHappy New Year!  Happy 2017!  Are you ready for the new year and all it has to offer?  Are you ready to try new things, meet new people and live life to it’s fullest?  That’s all any of us can do.  I hope you’re ready to embrace the new year as I am.

I’m going to work on taking my business to the next level and sharing more crafting ideas with you.  I want to do more business online as well as continue holding classes in my home and holding workshop/classes in your homes.  As with many people this time of year I also want to lose weight and get in shape.  I also want to make sure I appreciate what I have.  So let’s go!  Let’s get ‘er done this year!

One of the things I’m excited about in this new year is Stampin’ Up!’s upcoming (only a few more days!) Occasions Catalog.  There are some fantastic things in it and one of my favorites is the Birthday Bright Project Kit.  It’s the perfect way to get a head start on all of those birthdays you have on your calendar in the next few months.  Check out Stampin’ Up!’s video below.  I know you’re going to fall in love with this kit as much as I have!

Stampin’ Up!’s Magnetic Platform for the Big Shot!

Woo Hoo!  Did you see this fabulous product in the new catalog?  Mine should be here today and I can’t wait to play with it!  It will make die-cutting with Framelits so much easier!  Did I say Woo Hoo?!  Have you ordered yours yet?

It’s Tip (or trick) of the Day Tuesday and I definitely would classify this as a trick when using Framelits.  It should be so much easier to use than sticky-notes.  We’re going to be playing with this new toy at my open house tomorrow.  I’ll let you know what everyone thinks!

Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!

My Favorite Part of Convention 2012!!

This video was my absolute favorite part of convention.  Every year there is a theme song for convention and professionals perform the song during our opening session.  This year when the lights dimmed and the music began we saw this video.  It’s the staff at the home office lip-dubbing the song.  An absolute treat!  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did (and still do!).   😀
