SNOWFLAKES ARE THE BEST!

Big felt flurries

I love snowflakes in any form because their designs are divine!  To say that I love the new Felt Flurries in the Holiday Mini is an understatement.  They come in the three colors shown in this picture. 

On Thursday, October 30th we are going to use these great embellishments on every card!  They compliment the Ski Slope designer paper and the Old Saint Nick Rub-Ons perfectly.  We will be using these three products in the class, and cost includes the Ski Slope designer Paper and the Old Saint Nick Rub-Ons.

THE BIG SHOT CLUB

BIG SHOT MACHINE

Last Friday I hosted the very first event for the first session of the BIG CLUB where the "Big Shots" got to make some great projects just using the die cutting capabilities of the Big Shot.  We made a number of projects and then participants got to die cut whatever they wanted for the final 30 minutes of the club.

This Friday the BIG SHOT CLUB will be learning how to emboss with this fantastic machine.  Remember the days of huddling over the light table and drawing line after line with the stylus.  Those days are gone forever!  The BIG SHOT can emboss your brass stencils, your Cuttlebug embossing folders and the Sizzix Double Sided Texture plates!  I'm lovin' this can you tell???  Join us and I'll teach you how.

STAMPING WITH MADISON!

Let me introduce you to Madison Grace my beautiful grand-daughter.  At the tender age of 17 months her stamping career has begun!  Like her "gamma", she was thoroughly amused by it all, so of course I had to take some pictures.  Won't the scrapbook pages be great?  Be sure to keep watch for them!

Let's Begin the Stack-a-Stamp class!

  Let's begin our Stack-a-Stamp Class.

First Pick Your Stamps 

First,choose the stamp....

I'll demonstrate the hold... 

Pay attention please!  This is the proper way to grip the stamp!

These 2 are perfect! 

These two are perfect for this technique....

Simply follow my technique. 

I love butterflies don't you?

OOPS! 

OOPS!  Mistakes happen...

2 fisted stamping is faster you know!

I find two-fisted stamping goes much faster...

Time to clean the stamps! 

Alright ladies, it's time to clean the stamp and then....

Dry them on your shirt... 

simply dry them on your shirt!

The More stamps you have.... 

The more stamps you have, the better it is.

It's all good! 

Do you like my butterflies?

Now is the time to Stamp!

IT'S ALL GOOD!!!

EAT, DRINK & BE SCARY

EAT DRINK & BE SCARY

The expression,Eat, Drink & Be Scary, is too cute, for the name of this stamp set and the fun greeting it contains.  The stamp set works with many of our punches, including the: Small Tag Punch, Tag Punch, Key Tag Punch, and the Curly Label Punch.  This card was created using Ghostly Greetings Designer Paper. and the cute little ghost die cut on the Big Shot.  This is a 5-minute card and easy enough for a child to master.

CHRISTMAS TREE CHALLENGE

SCANDINAVIAN SEASON -2

One of the things that keeps me hooked on stamping is all the varied possibilites you can create with just one stamp set.  So today I wanted to show you two differnt looks with just one stamp.  The stamp I have chosen is Scandinavian Season.  I love the elegant swirls and flowers in this set and the choices of images.

Although the layouts are similar the variety of colors gives two completely differnt looks.  The Ski Slope designer paper is from the Holiday Mini and the embellishments are from the Fall/Winter 2008 Idea Book.

So here's the challenge!  Create a card using any Christmas Tree stamp and email it to me.  I will post it in a Photo Album called the CHRISTMAS TREE CHALLENGE.  You can also send it to me Snail Mail; just email to request the address.  Deadline to complete will be October 31-08.  Once all the samples are received I'll organize a vote.  The winner will receive the Scandinavian Season stamp set for free.  For everyone that submits a card I will email back the instructions for these cards.

HAPPY STAMPING EVERYONE!

SCANDINAVIAN SEASON -1
