Why not treat yourself to a little gift and swing by my online store? Check out the Weekly Deals and of course the Clearance Rack which is always being updated.

I was up to the wee hours last night working on a project for a presentation I’m doing a Stampin’ Up! South Pacific Convention… It’s now next week!!!  eeeeekkk! I got a great idea yesterday- at least I thought it was a great idea but then while I was working on it, like most of my ideas it turned into something completely different from what it started as. Am I going to show you???? Nope. Sorry I’m bound to secrecy until after Convention on the 20th to the 24th of May. But if you see me between now and then, I’ll be the one with the bags under my eyes burning the midnight oil.

Here is a little something I can show you. A card I made using my LOVE the Stampin’ Up! Gold Sequin Trim. Who doesn’t love bling right? I’ve teamed it up for a modern feel using the watercolour stamp from the Happy Watercolor stamp set in the Occasions mini. I know, I know, I’m totally wearing that set out!!! Here I’ve used my all time favourite Crumbcake card stock – oh Crumbcake how much do I love The? Let me count the ways.

Photopolymer Stamps (completely clear stamps) now available

demoheader_photopolymer_demo_5-1-2014_sp8ff411583795661a8962ff0000f7f0e6

 

Stampin’ Up! searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping. They’ve found it! I’m excited to announce that with the release of the upcoming 2014-2015 Annual Catalogue, will have wood-mount, clear-mount AND photopolymer stamps. Our top-quality photopolymer stamps stick extremely well on our acrylic blocks, are durable, and the transparent nature of these sets makes it easier to line up your images without the need of a guide. This is a feature that is particularly helpful with alphabets, borders, and backgrounds! Photopolymer is clearly a great choice.

Will you want to wait until the catalogue comes out to try this great new product? Of course not! So, beginning 1 May, Stampin’ Up! are introducing two exclusive photopolymer stamp sets: Show & Tell 1, and Show & Tell 2.

These great new photopolymer sets are designed to be used together. Even better, you can order both sets in a bundle that comes with an amazing online class-featuring tons of great project ideas using Show & Tell 1 and 2.

‘Pants’ Bow Maker Video Tutorial – how to tie a perfect bow every time

 

 

‘Pants’ Bow Maker Video Tutorial – how to tie a perfect bow every time

Image

 

I’ve been making this Bow Maker Template and showing my stamping friends how to use it for a number of years now… and over that time the template has moved from a plain white template into a ‘Pants’ Bow Maker.

Now along with the new name and cute little pockets and the like,  the way I explain how to tie the bows has changed too. How often have my stamping friends been in stitches of laughter trying to feed the ribbon through the pants crotch (teehee), round his knees and up to his pocket!!! LOL. It’s a great way of remembering a really easy method in which to make perfect bows every time.

Enjoy – and tell me what you think in the comments. 🙂 I LOVE comments – they make my heart sing.
