“Pin-spired” and a Cute New Stamp Set

New Catalog Update! 

I have officially mailed out the NEW 2014-2015 Stampin UP catalogs to all who have requested one here on the blog or otherwise.

  I mailed them all out on Monday, so if you have not received yours by today, please email me!  Over the years I’ve learned about 5% never make it.

Those of you I’m seeing this week, you will get yours in person.

“PIN-spired”

In the wee hours, if I find the Ipad on my nightstand, I might visit Pinterest.  If I’m feeling unorganized, there’s a million ways to solve any problem.  If I’m feeling plump that day,  I may look for healthy recipes.  If I’m feeling lonely, I look at boston terrier puppies….Pinterest is the fix for just about mood 🙂

Sometimes I look through the stamping and papercrafting, save a few for inspiration.

Sadly, this one had no name or watermark on it, as it often happens on Pinterest.   I loved the color combo of Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler and So Saffron.  We don’t have the eyelets or that stamp anymore, but I made my own version of it.

Here’s my “PIN-spired” version:

I used the stamp set in the Occasions catalog called So Very Grateful, which will not be carrying over into the new catty so if you want it, get it before June 1st.

16.95 Clear Mount, # 133053

  Pansy Punch for the flower, Bird Builder punch for the leaves.  We have a super cool new DSP coming out in the new catty called Typeset – thin newsprinty paper that will be SO useful for lots of projects.

Thank you for the inspiration, wherever you are!

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 🙂

Swaps & Inspiration Demo Get Together 2/12

(Note to the Roadies on my Stampin’ Up Team:  I posted a video from Janet’s demo from our get together in case you couldn’t be there. Go to the Roadies page here on the blog and enter the team password.)

Hi All!   Matt and I had a fun road trip to Winchester, VA for our 7th anniversary (see his page on the blog for pics along the way)!  We realized that we don’t go away very often for non-stamping related events.  Usually our big trips are with our stamping friends on the SU incentive trips or conventions so this time was just the two of us! He’s great fun and up for anything so we had some unusual stops along the way!

On the stamping scene, here are some of the swaps and ‘show & share’ samples from our demo get together here in FL at the end of February.
