Another Team Swap!

 

Those of you who know Nadine Stolt, KNOW that she loves making 3-D type stuff!

 

 

Well, while the rest of us made a card for our team swap, Nadine made us this:

 

Suitcase Lotion Gift Box, Gotta Have It All (SWYL) bundle, created by Nadine Stolt, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

She had many color choices--all from the Share What You Love DSP.

 

These flower embellishments & the stamped label are from the embellishment kit included in the larger 2 SWYL bundles available right now.

And look inside!!

Stamparatus sample + videos again!

 

YOU CAN ORDER THE STAMPARATUS JUNE 1!! (noon MT)

 

And I know a few people for whom this is at the TOP of their wish list!

 

We made this card at one of my clubs last month.

 

Waterfront, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

We used the Stamparatus for the mountains and trees.

 

 

 

Do you know what the Stamparatus is?

 

It is:

  • a positioning tool for photopolymer and clear mount stamps
  • PERFECT for the OCD/Perfectionist
  • wonderful for the rest of us, too!
  • FAR better--incomparably so--than the Stamp-a-ma-jig
  • the best on the market! (SU! knew what they were doing!)
  • a potential lifesaver
  • FABULOUS!! (just ask Ann....blew her mind!!!)
  • $49

 

It can help you:

  • stamp your image(s) exactly where you want it
  • do that MULTIPLE times (several of the same project)
  • do that easily with 4 different stamps (2 plates, 4 sides = 4 stamps)
  • stamp an image again that you didn't ink up well enough!! (it stamps right back in the same place!!)
  • stamp the same image several times evenly on the same project--stacked in columns:
    • thank you
    • thank you
    • thank you
  • do lots more things, I'm sure !

 

 

 

What should YOU do???

 

TAKE TIME TO WATCH THE VIDEOS!!! PLEASE.

Even if you only have time to watch 1 a day--come back!!

 

It's an amazing tool that you'll love; and it will help you get familiar with it before you buy it/use it.

 

When you do buy it, BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL with the magnets!

They are VERY STRONG and BRITTLE.

 

For whoever asked recently, YES, there are replacements available for $12/set of 2.

 

 

Btw, in the above card, the Soft Sky color and Smoky Slate Gingham Ribbon is retiring.

 

 

Before I give you the videos, don't forget to preorder your Color Coach!

They will be:

  • $8 if you pick it up
  • $13 if I mail it to you
  • FREE if you spend $75 in June with me.

 

PLEASE TAKE THE 5-min SURVEY TO PREORDER YOURS!

CLICK HERE FOR THE SURVEY by May 21!

 

 

 

Enjoy the videos!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Have an amazing rest of your day!!

Mommy & Me for Mother's Day!

 

Happy Monday, people!

 

I had a fun Saturday morning with some cuties!

 

 

Emma & Olivia had been waiting since March, because I had to cancel on them!

 

When we FINALLY met, they chatted non-stop!

SO much to share!! ;)

 

But I forgot to ask them about their recent Disney trip.

Maybe it was for the best...we MAY not have ever gotten started stamping!! ;)

 

We had a great time!

 

 

I couldn't resist making the Mini Milk Cartons with them that I had originally planned.

 

(Grandma) Deb, Emma, & Olivia at Mommy & Me Class, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

Mini Milk Carton, Wood Words, Picture Perfect Birthday DSP, www.dazzledbystamping.com
 

We were also joined by my sister Danielle and nieces Hayden & Morgan!

 

They had fun, too--and enjoyed the younger girls. ;)

 

Morgan, (Mom) Danielle & Hayden at Mommy & Me Class, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

I didn't catch pics of anyone with the card we also made.

 

But I still wanted to share.

This DSP attracted my eye immediately in last year's catalog.

 

And I think this month is the FIRST TIME I used this gorgeous black design!!

(I MUST have used it somewhere before.)

 

Flourishing Phrases (words), Timeless Textures (dots), Whole Lot of Lovely DSP, www.dazzledbystamping.com
 

 

I hope you already got your Whole Lot of Lovely DSP, cuz it's gone!!

 

When Danielle was done stamping, she said, "I would have never thought to put flowers and stripes and dots together!"

 

It made me realize again how AWESOME Stampin' Up! is!!

They do SO MUCH of the thinking FOR ME!

 

Afterall, I just put together 2 DSPs that were already in the same pack!

 

And of course, I added the dots.

 

Flourishing Phrases (words), Timeless Textures (dots), Whole Lot of Lovely DSP, www.dazzledbystamping.com

Btw, THIS is Tangerine Tango.

If you missed it on the list, it's one of the retiring Core SU! colors.

Get it while you can!

 

 

The words stamp set is Flourishing Phrases (NOT retiring).

INSIDE says:  SO HE MADE YOU.

 

 

There's also an 'I love you' stamp in there which Olivia needed to use. ;)

 

 

A little funny: it cracks me up at my Mommy & Me Classes....it seems every time there's SOMEONE who asks, "can I lick it closed now?"

 

(and NO, it's never already written in.)

 

Hee hee!

And it always seems like it's one with a little extra personality! :D

 

 

LOVE these classes!!

 

 

 

 

Before I go, here are a few dates I just put on my calendar:

 

  • NEW CATALOG OPEN HOUSE--pick your day! This is a free event, and an RSVP is not required. But it's helpful! Specials/hostess code will be added to the event later.

Thursday, 6/21, 1:30pm-8:30pm RSVP

Saturday, 6/23, 9:30am-12:30pm RSVP

 

  • CRAFT THE NIGHT AWAY!!--come craft with us! Stamp, scrap, sew...whatever you'd like. It's a perfect night to get a bunch done--in a relaxed, no pressure atmosphere!

Saturday, 7/7, 6pm-midnight RSVP

 

 

I'm not sure how soon I'm adding other classes to my calendar....

 

If I don't already have something scheduled (typically clubs) when Todd's softball schedule comes out, Mondays and Tuesdays are reserved to go cheer! :) Love to watch him play!!

 

And July is VERY FULL with clubs and a CRUISE!!! :D

 

BUT if you have a specific request--and ESPECIALLY if you're interested in a DAY class, let me know!!

 

  • I know of someone interested in a Birthday Stack that could be a day class. Anyone else?
  • Mommy & Me Class?

 

 

 

Ok, that's all for now!

 

Have a wonderful day!!

A little different look

 

Happy Friday people!!

 

Today I have another Share What You Love bundle card.

 

 

I ran one of the pieces of DSP thru the Big Shot with the Lovely Floral embossing folder. 

 

Share What You Love Bundle (Gotta Have It All), www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

THEN I rubbed the embossed area with my black ink.

 

Share What You Love Bundle (Gotta Have It All), www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

 

The card base here is Grapefruit Grove.

And we WILL be making this card at my FREE CLASS at the end of the month! :)

 

 

Funny story:

I made all my samples for my class; then several busy days later, I went back to them to pull all the stuff to re-create them with my Dazzling Demos Team. And I COULD NOT FIND where in the world I had gotten the "JUST FOR YOU" stamp for this card!! I wondered WHY I would use stamps outside of this bundle for this class--especially a retiring item! (All I could think of was Teeny Tiny Wishes.)

THEN I remembered...I cut this photopolymer stamp.

Original: "HANDCRAFTED JUST FOR YOU" :D

Hee hee! Found it!!!

(It's so tiny!)

Praying for those of you who can't be WITH your moms (or kids) for any number of reasons--AND for those of you who WANT children but haven't been blessed with them. ♥

Over the Top Baby Shower

I had the pleasure of attending one of them--put on by my cousin/aunt for their sister-in-law/daughter-in-law.

Discounts on Select Retiring Items

 

Good news!!

Some of the retiring items from both catalogs are discounted up to 50%!

 

I have lists for you below.

 

 

But first--I wanna share a project!

 

I paired the Share What You Love Specialty DSP (from the Gotta Have It All bundle available this month) with the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper available to you June 1.

 

IMG_6043

 

I decided to make the DSP the focal point.

 

I LOVE how each sheet has a side with pearlization on it!

On THIS sheet, EACH of the flowers are pearlized!

 

 

The Laser-Cut DSP is the pretty oval overlay.

 

Share What You Love Bundle (Gotta Have It All), Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut DSP, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

The Laser-Cut comes in 12x12 sheets you cut apart.

  • 4 each of 2 designs
  • 1 design is a full 12x12
  • the other has (6) 3 1/2" x 5" overlays like the one above and a 2" x 12" border and 1 1/2" x 10" border
  • one side is white; the other is vanilla

 

 

This little "love" stamp is CUT from the stamp "love what you do".

YES, photopolymer is so easy to cut if desired!

(And put right back in its place on a block with the rest if you still want the entire sentiment.)

 

 

Here's the link to order the Gotta Have It All bundle:

The bundle is exclusively available NOW and includes freebies!

ANOTHER big event coming up!

 

Happy Monday people!!

 

 

Besides Mom's Day, another biggie this month is graduations!

 

Some years are much more full than others.

 

And when I work on graduation cards, I always try to use what I already have!

 

It's rare for me to buy something specific to graduation.

 

Here's what we did at my Stamp-a-Stack:

 

Picture Perfect Birthday, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

Do you recognize it?

It's the Picture Perfect Birthday Suite!

But how perfect for ANY celebration!

 

 

 

Here's my inside:

Thoughtful Banners, Labeler Alphabet, www.dazzledbystamping.com

We used the Thoughtful Banners (retiring) and the Labeler Alphabet (NOT retiring). 

 

I love sort of repurposing my stuff to make it more versatile.

 

And ever since I got the Picture Perfect DSP, I've been DYING to use that specific Lemon Lime Twist design!!

 

 

 

Oh--before I go, just wanted to remind you that you have through Thursday, 5/10, to signup for Paper Pumpkin and get half off your first 2 months!

 

Copy this code SAVEFIFTY0418 and click here to sign up:

half off 2 months of Paper Pumpkin!

 

Thanks for checkin in!

 

Have an amazing day and week!!
