Thinlits Versatility!

 

Before I share my project with you, I have fabulous news!

 

Yesterday I earned enough points for NEXT YEAR'S CRUISE to the Greek Isles!!!

SO EXCITING!!!

 

Thank you so much for YOUR part in helping me earn it!!

 

 

And.......we are 33 days from our Alaskan Cruise!

It seems so unreal!

 

 


 

 

Ok, so back to the real world. ;)

 

I had a fun New Catalog Open House last week!

 

As promised, we used the amazing Broadway Birthday bundle--in colors specific to the suite:

 

Broadway Bound Suite, pg 68, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

 

We used the thinlits a little differently here--simply embossing with it for one piece, in addition to cutting another one out....

 

 

Here's the thinlit we used, along with the outside frame that's cut out.

(We stamped the inside white piece for our card.)

We EMBOSSED the Basic Black cardstock with the new Embossing Mats.

 

So the black frame has embossed circles rather than circles cut out of it (like the white frame).

 

We cut around the outside frame with our Paper Snips.

 

Broadway Bound Suite, pg 68, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

 

 

Here's a video to show you how it's done--with the new Embossing Mats from Stampin' Up!:

(It makes our thinlits so versatile!!)

 

 

 

I have one more quick mention for you.

 

We ALSO used the Stamparatus for this card--the dots on WISH.

It's so great!!

 

But I have to be honest that I really don't think the Stamparatus is needed for it!

 

WISH is so big, and the set is photopolymer, so it's pretty easy to line up!

 

 

Here's my supply list for this card:

Big Shot
$110.00

Have a wonderful day!!

 

 

ps: Does everyone realize the Fourth of July is a week from today????

 

That's just shocking to me!!

Somehow I keep thinking there's another week in there!

 

With that in mind, our next Craft the Night Away is also next week: Saturday, July 7, 6pm-midnight. RSVP HERE

Quite the SPLASH of color!!

 

As I mentioned last week, the bundle that REALLY caught my eye in the catalog this year was part of the Broadway Bound Suite (pg 68-69.)

 

I mean who can resist this page???

I keep thinking that's Melon Mambo; but it's Lovely Lipstick.

Here's what I did with the set and a little of the DSP:

Well, I used it here for my WISH.

Today's the big day!!!!

 

The new Stampin' Up! Catalog goes live today at noon, Mountain Time!!

 

 

Just to whet your appetite a little more, I have a quick cool video Stampin' Up! shared with us about the process of making our AMAZING Designer Series Paper.

 

 

 

Loved seeing behind the scenes!

 

 

Now here's the video that shows all the paper.

 

Make sure you expand the frame and watch it on the biggest screen you've got, so you can get a good look at it!!! :D

 



 

 

I'll be back with more later!

 

Have a fabulous day!!

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!!

My favorite little spot on the beach

 

Oh doesn't the beach sound perfect???

I have been absolutely enjoying our sunshine recently!!

 

It's a bit chilly for the typical sunbathing type beaching, but I'm ok with that.

 

 

This month my clubs and I enjoyed a little beach action! :D

 

Waterfront, Colorful Seasons, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

 

AND we got some practice with my Stamparatus!

 

It won't be available to order (if you didn't reserve one already) until the catalog goes live June 1.

 

BUT--practicing now will get us ready!

 

 

I know some of you haven't watched the technique videos yet, so I'm gonna post them toward the bottom of this post again.

 

They're so helpful!!

 

 

 

I have a quick question for you though.....

Do you remember you can CUT YOUR PHOTOPOLYMER STAMPS?

 

I did that with my "just breathe." cuz I wanted the words above each other.

 

You can do it with your red rubber Clear Mount stamps, too...

BUT photopolymer is so much easier to cut through AND "put back together!"

 

All you have to do is mount the photopolymer stamps back together again right on the same block--just as if they were never cut!

 

It makes them that much more versatile!

 

 

Ok, first the list: 

Big Shot
$110.00

 

 

 And here are the Stamparatus videos:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks for stopping by today!!

 

I'll be back tomorrow with details on the new sneak peek Share What You Love bundles--plus the class I'm having with them!

 

 

Have a fabulous week!!

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!
