Video: Easy Treats, No Tricks

Hi All!

I’m heading out to St. George, Utah for the Stampin’ Up Founder’s Circle achievers trip. I’m excited to see my friends and also see what SU has for their theme this year.  The event staff does amazing things with displays and sweets…I’ll be posting from there in between chocolate, lounging and stamping.  Feel sorry for me?  didn’t think so! I’m a lucky girl. Matt will be handling all calls for Stamping School if you need anything or want to say hello:)

I have 125 swaps to do before our swap on Thursday…wish me luck!  This year’s theme is easy, 2 layer cards.  That’s harder to do than a WOW card!

Ok, 2 more things before I show you the video!

#1.  Don’t forget to check my class schedule for Sept/October events!  I have stamp a stacks, technique classes, and more but you have to go to my calendar HERE.  There will be links to register for the mall and  card buffet class.  Be sure to click to the next month for October.

#2.  Free roll of ribbon with every $40 purchase until end of Sept!  Scroll down to see my post for details.

My video today requires no creativity or talent!  Look on page 27 of the Stampin’ Up Holiday catalog and you will see the Googly Ghouls and designer kit.  If you like giving little Halloween treats to the kids, the neighbors, the coworkers or sending your own little ghouls in to school with treats for the class, this is for YOU!

Watch how fast these go together! (sorry iphone/ipad users -you may not be able to see this one.  I didn’t want to you youtube for this one)

*9/18:  I found out that the clear plastic bags do not come with the glassine bags.  I just got a special treat in mine, I guess!

Video: New Embossing Folders

Hi All!   I LOVE embossing folders and with the new SU catty, we have 5 new designs!  (ok, one has 2 in the package so technically 4, but I’m counting them as 2 designs)  They can be overlooked in the catalog so I’m spotlighting them here as well as a video today.

Delicate Designs Textured Impressions Embossing Folders  #127023  $8.95. 

These are about 2″ tall and are just for edges and borders.

Argyle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #127750  $7.95.  

Perfect for masculine cards, too!

Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder  #127749  $7.95  

Right on trend with fashion!

Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #127751  $7.95

Elegant without being too frilly!

I noticed right away that the new folders are longer than last year’s models.  These are around 6-1/2″ long and won’t fit horizontally in the Big Shot.  I recently found out that it is b/c the UK stampers have longer cards than we do.   I think their standard is 6″ so they are really excited!

With the longer length of folder, we need to adjust and tweak the way it runs through our machines.  Vertical designs are no problem and proceed as usual.  Horizontal card folds will require the adjustment.

7/15/12 Update:  I ended up cutting a 1/4 inch off of my folders so I can use them both directions:) You certainly don’t have to but I like options.

Here is a quick video:

Thanks for tuning in!

Video: My Favorite Things From The New 2012 SU Catalog

Hi All!  I had so much fun opening my first order from the new Stampin’ Up catalog!  I thought I’d share a few things with that I found surprising (in a good way mostly) and highlight a few in video:

New and Improved Ink Pads are Fabulously Juicy and Great Coverage!  Watch SU company video explaining the new pads.  (all the same colors, just new improved pad 🙂
