9 Pet Tips for a Safe & Happy Halloween!

Where did the time go?  I can't believe it!  We're already posting the FIFTH WEEK OF CHRISTMAS IDEAS today!  (Get on the list here if you're not getting them.) Today is the LAST DAY that you can get that special Christmas Bundle that includes the Ornament set, the Ornament Framelits for your Big Shot, the Candlelight DSP and free Piercing Template here. And you can get 3 free Digital Downloads this week only that you can use with My Digital Studio! We've been so busy that Ann only took a picture of me in ONE of my 3 Halloween Costumes!  And you've...

Christmas Mittens Punch

Christmas Mittens Punch

First of all, congratulations to all of you who were able to take advantage of the One Day Spooktacular Stamp Sale!  I was having to fan Ann all day long!  I constantly came in to check to see if she was alright.  I think I saw smoke come off the keyboard!  And a big bark out to our team, the 24/7 Stampers, who took really good care of their clients as well. Stampin' Up! has NEVER done a sale like that.  I hope that they'll do it again, but Ann said that it took them 25 years to do this one, so we'll see. Do you have that cool Mitten Builder Punch...

ONE DAY ONLY!  Save 15% on Stampin’ Up! Stamps!

Today is the day that we warned our newsletter readers and Facebook fans about.  Stampin' Up! is offering 15% off of almost ALL of their stamps and stamp sets!  And we're almost ready to give away $100 gift certificate on the Barking Board too! This may be just the perfect thing to keep your mind off the weather!   But before I go into some strategy for my favorite stampers, here's a card I designed for Ann to make for all of you who are a bit under the weather today.  (Darn that Hurricane Sandy!) REMEMBER that it's only for today!  Print...

Super Simple Sunday

Ann & I did FOUR Digital Training sessions this week!  I appeared in some of them.  One was for our demonstrator group, the 24/7 Stampers.  The other 3 were the Master Classes for Master Stamper members.  It was "You Call the Shots" week.  Everyone told Ann what they wanted to learn.  By request, she showed how to make Ribbon Roses with Tulle Ribbon, how to alter your Holiday Frame Embossing Folder so that it doesn't buckle Whisper White Card Stock, Mastering Masking and different ways how to use Shimmer Paint.  Oh yes – and a...

Getting Your Man Card for Christmas

Getting Your Man Card for Christmas

Many stampers find man cards hard to make.  Really they're not.  There are no rules, although frequently you'll find them made of colors from the Stampin' Up! Regals Collection (get these free from Ann starting 11/1/2012).  And many times they don't have ribbon, but this one does.  And you don't usually find glitter on there either!  But this card has it! Actually, this isn't necessarily a man card, but because my favorite huMAN likes blue, he's got his eyes on this one made with Midnight Muse.  (Although we're still trying...

I’ve Got a 2nd and 3rd Secret

Just after Ann finished her live digital training yesterday, she got on the phone to see how our 24/7 Stamper Marci was doing in Texas.  While they were on the phone, Ann found out that on MONDAY, Stampin' Up! is going to have a one day sale!  15% off ALL STAMPS!  Well, almost all stamps.  (Read on.) It's just one day, so this is the time to think about those stamp sets that have been on your Wish List too long!  And how about a personalized stamp that you've been putting off treating yourself to?  They're not just for addresses!  Ann...

Can You Keep a Secret?

Can You Keep a Secret?

I'm helping Ann on a project.  As you know, I direct her in all her video appearances on my blog.  I think I do really well at staying out of the camera lens.  But when it comes to projects for the Master Stamper members, she only uses me as a muse.  So last night, we filmed some stuff that would curl the hair of the local botanists!  We made Metallic Leaves from paper using the Autumn Accents Bigz Die!  We'll be posting it this weekend for the Master Stampers.  Here's a little peek at the experiment using two different colors of card...
