Another SURE THING...

 

I have a few things for you today...

 

#1  Last night I realized another SURE THING that's gonna retire:

 

ALL DESIGNER SERIES PAPER (DSP).

 

The only possible exception is the Fresh Florals DSP Stack (big pad of all the 2017-2019 In Colors.)

 

 

Stampin' Up! does it every year.

They want our catalogs fresh.

 

 

So keep that in mind if you have some favorites--full catalog or Occasions.

 

They won't come back.

 

The rest of the Retired List will be posted after 1pm (MT).

 

 

 

 

#2  We're still close to SAB and I never shared this cutie:

 

Party Pandas (SAB), www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

 

 

 

#3  I have an important Stamparatus Tips Video for you.

 

Many of you have the Stamparatus in your hands; many more of you will be using one at my clubs/classes.

 

It comes with VERY STRONG magnets, which are also VERY BRITTLE.

 

Please WATCH THIS VIDEO for tips on how to take care of them--and also to see what can happen if you don't:

 

 

 

 

Have a spectacular day!!

Stamparatus Technique Videos!

 

I think many of you got in on the #2 reservation window for the Stamparatus.

 

 

And as you know, they will be available to ship soon!!

Watch for your email saying its waiting for you to finalize your order!

 

If you do that during SAB, you also can add another item to your order to earn a SAB item.

 

 

I've received my Stamparatus, but haven't played yet.

I DEFINITELY will be using it this Saturday when I CRAFT THE NIGHT AWAY--stamping all my OnStage swaps!!

There's still room for you to join us! RSVP HERE.

 

 

Stampin' Up! released a series of technique videos that will be so helpful!

I especially appreciate #4.

I WILL be using those tips Saturday!

 

 

Remember--although each trainer says to "order your Stamparatus from your demonstrator", UNLESS you reserved one during one of the windows, it will NOT be available to order until the new catalog goes live (June 1?)

 

Enjoy these helps!

 

 

 







 

 

Have a great day! And week!

Back in Plaid is BACK!! (tomorrow)

 

...plus MORE Paper Pumpkin announcements below:

 

HEADS UP for anyone who fell in love with the Back in Plaid Paper Pumpkin Kit....

Back in Plaid pic, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

This full kit will be available to order (only to Paper Pumpkin subscribers)--while supplies last--starting tomorrow, 2/28.

 

As long as you're a subscriber, you'll be able to add that kit to any order.

No refill kits are available.

 

Here's the Back in Plaid video:

 

 

Here are a few more announcements regarding Paper Pumpkin...

 

1) I found out when I went looking for a simple pic of the Back in Plaid kit that you can go to the Paper Pumpkin website and print a [dvd] stamp case insert for the sets!! If you've seen kit contents, you know the sets are all photopolymer and simply come on the cello sheets--not in cases.

 

 

click to subscribe to Paper Pumpkin!

2) March 2018 is the 5 year anniversary of Paper Pumpkin! Subscribe by March 10 to receive the anniversary kit with specially designed box and free gift inside! The free gift:

  • complements the kit, but is not required to complete the kit
  • is exclusive to the March Paper Pumpkin kit and cannot be found anywhere else
  • is a crafting product with a wide range of use that can be used on a variety of papercrafting projects
  • holds an approximate retail value of $6-$8 compared to similar SU! products

SUBSCRIBE HERE!!

 

 

3) NOW is the perfect time to try out Paper Pumpkin!! One of your options is a prepaid subscription. If you order at least a 3-month subscription during Sale-a-Bration, this qualifies you for a FREE SAB item! [s/h is paid on the free item(s) unless it's being added to an order that already has shipping included]

 

 

 

While I'm sharing all things Paper Pumpkin, I'll also share the kit I just received last week.

I still need to put it together, but it's kind of adorable. :)

 

 

 

I'll be back tomorrow with projects I've been sharing this month at my events.

 

 

Have an amazing rest of your day!!

5 months!!!

 

As you know my Alaskan Cruise (incentive trip earned from Stampin' Up!) is no longer a secret to Todd.

 

 

AND today is 5 months away from our adventure!

 

Here's a little snippet of a video Stampin' Up! made for us to get us excited. I edited it to start at the part probably from the Royal Caribbean website, cuz the rest was really cheesy. 



 

 

And while I'm here, I thought I'd share the trip I'm working towards right now--July 2019! Same editing features apply. ;) Todd's kind of excited about this possibility, too! But says he doesn't wanna pressure me. ;)

 


 

Thank you to all of you who support me and stamp with me!

 

If you have an interest in making this a business for yourself--and working toward the incentive trip--contact me! The trip is available to EVERY Demonstrator!

 

If you simply would like a great deal on "The Ultimate Bundle" (free shipping and $99 for up to $227 worth of product during SAB) or want the demonstrator discount on your purchases, that's great, too!

 

What questions do you have? Give me a call or send me a text/email!

 

 

Have an amazing day!

Beautiful Brusho!

 

Brusho Crystal Color is a new product we have available in the Occasions Catalog.

 

The end results are amazing and always different--and I wanted everyone to be able to play with it at my HAP!

 

 

Here are samples of our projects.

The colors Stampin' Up! has packaged together are Brilliant Red, Gamboge (orange), Moss Green, Prussian Blue, and [not pictured] yellow:

 

Brusho Crystal Color, Beautiful Day, Vertical Greetings, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

Brusho is a VERY FINE POWDER of color; you add water to spread on your project.

 

Stampin' Up! suggests NOT opening the lid--but rather poking holes in it with a Paper Piercing Tool or push pin and using like a salt shaker.

 

Other items you'll need:

  • Watercolor Paper
  • Aqua Painters/water (or watercolor paintbrush)
  • TIME (I prefer to let air dry rather than using a heating tool)
  • Tear & Tape--helps Watercolor Paper to stay flat
  • (to get this particular look, I stamped the butterfly in VersaMark and embossed with Clear EP before we added the Brusho)

 

 

This one's my favorite:

Brusho Crystal Color, Beautiful Day, Vertical Greetings, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

We used a single color of Brusho on each of these projects, but each color has a variation of color within the container to provide an authentic watercolor look.

 

 

Here's the Stampin' Up! video on Brusho:

 

 

 

 

 

Here's what we used:

Heat Tool
$30.00

 

 

Thanks for stopping by today!

Have an amazing day!!

My 16th Annual Hostess Appreciation Party is done.

Hopefully all my hostesses felt spoiled!

 

 

We had a fun day eating, stamping and overall-celebrating!

 

I appreciate my hostesses SO MUCH!!!

And I'm really excited about the number of participants in the Card Contest again this year!

Voters had 18 cards to choose from. :D

 

Everyone did a FABULOUS job!!

 

Here's our beautiful Card Contest winner--from Marlene VanderZouwen:

 

2018 HAP Card Contest, created by Marlene VanderZouwen, www.dazzledbystamping.com

Congratulations Marlene!

 

She received an EXTRA door prize and got to pic hers before anyone else (besides my Hostess with the Mostest.)

 

 

I have lots more Card Contest entries and projects of mine to share, too.

Oh--and food recipes. :)

 

 

But for now, I'm gonna leave you with a video SU! recently posted from our Sure Do Love You Bundle.

 

You still have time to order it and make your Valentine's Day treats! :)

IT'S SO CUTE!!!

 

 

 

Don't forget to add a FREE SAB item for every $50 you spend!

 

 

Have an amazing day!!

Perennial Birthday Kit Class & more

 

I'm so excited by the gorgeous Perennial Birthday Project Kit!

 

Perennial Birthday Kit, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

 

I'm planning a class for Tuesday, February 20. RSVP HERE

 

  • Cost of the class: the cost of the kit [$27 + shipping & tax.]
  • You can either order using my hostess code XDQC2GA9 OR I can order it for you if I have your credit card on file.
  • If you've already ordered the kit previously but would like to come to the class, you may place an additional equivalent order with the hostess code.
  • I'll provide the extra supplies needed to complete the kit. HOWEVER, I LOVE the big Happy Birthday stamp that's part of the coordinating Perennial Birthday set. You also may want to order the set to have in the future--or to make your stamping easier that night.

 

  • Remember if you place a $50 order instead, you'll also get to choose a FREE SAB item!
  • Please RSVP by Thursday, February 8--including placing your order for the kit (or having me do it.)
