I thought that Ann was gone a bit long when she left. Little did I know that when she said to guard the stamps, she really meant to guard the stamps! She was up in Tacoma, Washington for her Class Reunion.  Of course, she can't resist going to any Stampin' Up! events, so she went to the Stampin' Up! Regionals Conference there too.  And while she was there, she ran into her very first hostess!  Heather was her very first hostess over 13 years ago. And NOW she's a demonstrator too! When Stampin' Up! demonstrators get together at these events, they swap...

They Call It Work

Ann brainstormed with her friend Barb when they were in St. George a couple weeks ago.  They CALL it work, but I bet to differ. They SAY that they put their heads together.  Well, I guess you could say that.  What do YOU think? Ann's hooking up with Barb again this weekend.  Maybe it's because Barb's going to be guest speaker for the 24/7 Stamper's webinar in October.  I wonder if they'll put their heads together again. How many times do you think they need to put their heads together?  And will it always involve fun and friendship?...

Early Christmas Cheer

Early Christmas Cheer

Are you ready for a little early Christmas Cheer?  To give you a hint, this is one of the Christmas projects that DIDN'T make the 12 Weeks of Christmas ideas! Why? Well, part of it was that Ann used the 3" Circle Die for the Big Shot for the wreath in the back instead of the Floral Frame Framelets #127012 that match the Daydream Medallions (Wood-#126465 Clear-#126467)  I even laid them out for her! But I do like the Red Glimmer Paper (#121790)!  Just stamp the glass on the back and cut it out!  YIKES!  Get them all here. We've had this Cheery Set on...

I’m All Halloween Googlie Eyes

I’m All Halloween Googlie Eyes

Everyone is just loving the Halloween Tag that I designed for Ann.  She does pretty well under my direction.  One of our You Tube viewers suggested that the tag would be great with the Googlie Eyes and I barked "Why stop there?"  And this is what we came up with! Now she not only has some fancy Googlies, but she's also got some dynamite hair with the Crumb Cake Scallop Tulle Ribbon.  I love it when we work together!  You can see the original tag and video here. Ann has toothpicks in her eyes from getting ready to release the new Master Stampin'...

Halloween Mummy Tag

Halloween is the start of the fun , but really my September 2nd birthday kicks off a season of giving.  It starts with my birthday gifts.  Then it goes into those Halloween treats and tricks.  Then you humans enjoy giving a little more thanks than usual at Thanksgiving.  And to top it off, the big guy in the red suit puts all your giving efforts to shame!  So lets start off the Halloween giving with a Halloween Mummy Tag to go on your little gifties for your friends. I'm almost positive that it would be a most excellent accessory to accentuate a bag of dog...

Presto Change-o

There are certain colors that I have a hard time sharing.  Real Red & Riding Hood Red are two of them.  Yesterday's card was Riding Hood Red, Early Espresso and Baja Breeze and today – it's the same! We found out that our dear buddy Linda's mother had gone to help walk the pets over the Rainbow Bridge.  In person, yesterday's card seemed just the right one – so we changed it to a Sympathy Card with a greeting from the Love & Sympathy stamp set.  Wood-#122795  Clear-#122797 Who knew? That's just another reason why I love...
