Thinlit Tips Video & Samples

I’ve had quite a few of you purchase one or both of these Stampin’ Up flip card Dies so I thought I’m make a tip video for how to add layers as well as extend the card to create a flap and writing area. (I’m not sure who came up with that original idea to add the flap but well done!)

If you are viewing from your email, click HERE to see video on my blog.

I received many great swaps using the new thinlits and as promised in the video, here are a few of my favorites!


This cute little guy was a swap created by Jill Hilliard. The reindeer is from the SU Holiday catalog called Color Me Christmas


This pretty snowflake card was created by April Lopez.  The scallop comes with the circle card thinlits and April used it with SU Silver Foil Sheets.


I wish there was a name written on the back, maybe Iina Lee? I think it had a cello envelope with her label on it, which is long gone!


I love getting a swap every year from Georgia Giguere, who puts her family photo inside! Use the Sizzix Circle framelits and the magnetic platform to make easy circles!


Everyone loves this cute owl punch card by Linda Gutierrez!


Sandy Hancock made this one and I love how she used the SU Stripes embossing folder on one side of the flip card.


Here is the extended version of the flip card I showed in the video. It’s by Sue Kempter-Miller.

If you don’t have the thinlits yet and would like one or both, here are the 2 options available so far:

Circle Card Item #133480 $32.95


Label Card Item # 133479 32.95

If you have been waiting for a sale, this is a good time to give SU a try or come back if you have been a demo before.  See my post HERE  from last week to read more about it.

My New Must Have…Magnetic Platform!

magnetic platform

My favorite ‘MUST HAVE’ from the new Stampin’ Up catalog!  I have tested this thing and it really works!

It’s the newest platform for your Big Shot that is magnetic, so your framelits won’t move or slip around while you are trying to line them up and cut.

This will take the place of your regular platform JUST for the Framelits and Edgelits, not your sizzlets, embosslits or regular dies, which won’t fit through.

(side note:  there is a warning label on the side about not using it if you have a pacemaker)

It’s pricey but totally worth it’s weight in magnets and staying power!   $39.95 Item # 130658  Page 184 of the SU catalog.

I was just about to do a video for you but then SU beat me to it 🙂  Here is Brandi Barnard from the SU home office showing how it works:

Speaking of FRAMELITS….I just bought 2 of the newest sets in the SU catalog, Circles and Squares!

Single Stamps

The 2nd promotion is a TEST PILOT PROGRAM that SU is experimenting with.  They realize that some stampers may want just one stamp out of a stamp set.  Maybe you have a baby shower or someone needs that one stamp only to make a project perfect!

Stampin’ Up is testing the sale of Single Stamps.  They have chosen 3 stamp sets to purchase individual stamps- Word Play, Perfectly Penned, and Seasonal Sayings. The offer will be available now through January 2, 2013.

Here are a few things you need to know before purchasing:

  • These stamps are available on any order type-customer, demonstrator, workshop, or online.
  • You can find the stamp item numbers on the flyers.
  • These single stamps can be ordered in the online store.
  • These won’t be sent to you in our typical cases or packaging; they’ll be packaged in cello bags. If you’d like a case for your stamp, you can buy our Clear-Mount Stamp Cases that come in packs of four (item 119105).
  • This offer is available for clear-mount stamps only.
  • The stamps won’t come with a Clear-Mount Block, and you’ll need to buy a block separately if you don’t already have one. The recommended block sizes can be found on the flyers.
  • There’s no limit on how many pieces you can buy.
  • This offer is not available in Quebec.
  • Remember that this is a pilot program, so take advantage of it while you can!
  • Keep in mind that there is a minimum 6.95 shipping for orders under $69, then it’s only 10%. (that would defeat the $5 stamp lol) If you want a stamp and you see me locally, I can throw it on an order and you can get it from me at the next class to save on shipping.
