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 🙂

Sweet Summer Stampin’ Up! Video

Hi stampin’ friends!

Sale-A-Bration time keeps me hopping as a demonstrator (which is WONDERFUL and thank you to my customers and hostesses who have made this a fun season, too!).   Other than videos for Stamping School, I haven’t had time to post more swaps or projects here on the blog so  I’m adding a video by Carrie Cudney from Stampin’ Up!  Carrie is showing how to watercolor one of the free SAB stamp sets called Sweet Summer.  Thanks to SU for sharing what they love, too!
