One of my firsts....

 

I've been doing some cleaning in my stamp area and desk.

 

Oh!! It's needed it SO MUCH for SO LONG!!!

 

 

I came across an envelope sent to us by the couple Todd & I went to for pre-marital counseling.

 

She was cleaning out her house and probably downsizing and she sent us back lots of pics and cards and letters I wrote them over the years.

 

 

This was included:

One of my first

 

It was our baby announcement for Liz--and probably one of the first ever cards I made.

 

I STARTED stamping with my sister Teresa.

And we--with my other 2 sisters--worked on big projects like this together. :)

 

Oh--here's Liz's newborn pic, too. 

Liz newborn, 1 day old

 

 

While I'm at it, I'll show you Tyler's; his cracks me up.

(But I wasn't stamping yet for his announcement.)

 

Tyler newborn, 1 day old

 

 

Just thought you'd enjoy seeing one of my first works. ;)

And my babies.

 

 

Have an awesome day!

NON-Orderable Status

 

Just wanted to give a quick bit of info...

 

There are a few items in NON-orderable status right now and the Timeless Tidings Project Kit is dropping there on Monday.

 

 

Stampin' Up! occasionally has items that are COMPLETELY POPULAR--FAR BEYOND their extensive forecasting!

 

When this happens and the leadtime to get them back in the warehouse is too great, it causes huge back orders that are EXTREMELY costly--and frustrating to all involved.

 

In these situations, SU! makes the hard decision to drop the item to NON-Orderable Status.

 

That means--until that status is lifted--you are UNABLE TO ORDER; the computer won't even take the order for that item.

 

 

THESE items are already NON-Orderable:

 

Santa's Workshop Memories & More Card Pack

estimated availability: Oct 22

147905S

 

 

Santa's Workshop  You Make It Collection

estimated availability: TBD (other items in the collection are back ordered) 

Santa's Workshop.You Can Make It Collection

 

 

Chicken Wire Embellishments

(Yes, Lisa, YOURS came in!)

estimated availability: Oct 1 

147807S

 

 

 

This Kit is dropping there Monday:

 

Timeless Tidings Project Kit

not expected for at least 30 days

148028S

 

This is an all-inclusive kit, and I've heard many demonstrators say this is the BEST KIT SU! has ever offered!

 

 

I have a Class scheduled around this November 27.

If you want to come and are ok with my ordering your kit (on your card) NOW, please RSVP NOW.

 

RSVP, 11/27, morning class

RSVP, 11/27, evening class

 

Then we can get our names on the back order list.

 

If you wanna wait until it comes back up for good, that's fine. 

 

Here's the video for this kit:

 

 

 

 

Have a great day!

The Prettiest Milk Can

 

I never thought of a milk can as pretty!

 

But the set Country Home sure makes some gorgeous cards!

 

Country Home, swap by a fellow demonstrator, www.dazzledbystamping.com

This IS  a milk can, right?

 

I just think it's such a pretty card.

And of course, the Tin Tile embossing folder  makes the card PERFECT!!

 

 

I'll be showing it on my Facebook Live! tomorrow!

(Oh and I just remembered to upload last week's to YouTube.)

 

 

The colors here are Blackberry Bliss and I think Smoky Slate.

BIG Correction!!

 

Morning Sunshine!!

 

I dunno about YOU, but I was LOVIN' the weather around here yesterday!!!

 

 

So I have an announcement for you later in the day--and a reason for you to mark your calendars Saturday.

 

(Check back later!)

 

 

But NOW I have a HUGE correction to make for anyone who has been at my house in the last month looking at my gorgeous swaps!!

 

Still Night, swap by Mary Lang, www.dazzledbystamping,com

This card???

THERE'S NO DESIGNER PAPER WITH THIS OWL ON IT!!!

 

Mary Lang DID color this magnificently!!!!

 

With as perfect as it looks, I just thought there was DSP that coordinated with it like Rooted in Nature or like last year's Birthday Memories!

 

But nope. I found no owls.

Amazing.

 

 

I LOVE being in this swap group!

I just got a new batch this weekend!

 

I have swaps coming out my ears!

And they're GORGEOUS.

 

My blog this week is gonna be mostly swaps.

 

 

Have a fantastic day!!

Here's what you missed!!

 

Happy Friday, people!!!

 

I'm sorry I haven't posted in a couple days!

This came to mind:

 

Ducks in a row

Hahaha!!

Oh my.

How I've been feeling lately.

 

 

 

DID YOU KNOW????

 

Even if you don't have Facebook, you can still go LOOK at what I post there!

www.facebook.com/Dazzledbystamping

 

You just can't comment or share without an account.

 

 

I'm telling you this, because I've been doing a Facebook Live! for the past 3 weeks.

 

It's always 10:30am on Wednesday.

Come check me out!!

 

 

Here's the project I made on my Live! this week:

 

Buffalo Check, Painted Harvest, www.dazzledbystamping.comGray Granite, Merry Merlot, Festive Farmhouse DSP

 

 

And here are some similar designs:

Buffalo Check, Painted Harvest, www.dazzledbystamping.comMint Macaron

Buffalo Check, Painted Harvest, www.dazzledbystamping.comPumpkin Pie

 

 

Here's another Buffalo Check project:

 

Buffalo Check, Lovely As a Tree, www.dazzledbystamping.comPear Pizzazz

 

We made this at my Stamp-a-Stack yesterday!!

 

This is NOT the new Corrugated Dynamic Embossing Folder.

 

I tried that, but it was TOO much texture and made the bottom of the card try to fall apart.

 

It's just the Simple Stripes folder.

 

And the black is Black Foil Sheets.

Impressive in person!

SO shiny!!

 

 

Ok, gotta go!

 

Have an amazing weekend!!
