How to Use a Stamp-A-MaJig Stamp Positioner Video

I’ve had Ann include instructions on how to use a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig here and there.  We use it all the time – even with clear stamps!  It’s a grrrrreat tool when we absolutely have to get it right.   Those of you reading this in your email should click here to view or click on the title. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCYNUxIV8qw I can’t believe that today is the last day of our special!  Oh, Barkers!  I can’t wait to give away the $100 gift certificate.  And I can’t wait to send out the invitations to those of you who qualify for our Spring Soiree on...

Ending the Year with a BANG!

Ending the Year with a BANG!

Cindy came by here this week.  While she and Ann chatted and admired her great wrapping abilities, I destroyed my new toy.  It was a KONG tire for Power Chewers.  Lucky for me, Pet Smart is giving me a second chance with a larger version made for dogs over twice my size.  Hopefully, I'll be better with this one than the one for little dogs. And here is Cindy's package that Ann and I admired and drooled over.  Didn't she do a nice job?  And the ornament was embossed with glittyer white! This fancy packagaing would be great for a Wedding gift or...

How to Remove Adhesive Video

All stampers have done it!  (Except me, but Ann has!)  You put the adhesive too close to the edge of the card stock and it sticks out.  That means it sticks to the envelope and anything it comes into contact with.  YIKES!  What's a stamper to do!?! Here's a quick video to help you.  You might want to bookmark or PIN this one on Pinterest so that you won't forget these two quick fixes.  (Yeah, we left out putting another layer on.)  If you're reading this in an email reader, click here or the title to bring you back to watch it....

Get Invited to the Party!

Today's a holiday in England.  It's called Boxing Day!  Maybe in Canada and Australia too.  Ann only knows because she used to live there with my predecessor (a Westie named Johnny Walker) and my favorite huMAN. And YOU can get invited to the special Spring Seasonal Catalog Online Release Party on January 3rd by making a $50 purchase by 12/30/12.  Master Stamper members are automatically invited, but you can crash the party by filling your stocking after the fact.  Remember that cool stamps like this Bold Snowflake will be gone on January 2nd, so...

Yesterday's Snowman Candy Holder was done by me.  Leave it to Ann to improve it!  Take 5 minutes to watch this and you'll have these on your Christmas table tomorrow – or maybe just give them as a great little gift to the kiddies.  If you're on an email reader, just click here to view.   If it's too late to enjoy for Christmas, it would make a great Winter Party Favor or a great Valentine Treat.

Kit Kat Snowman

While Ann and my favorite huMAN were at church tonight, I snuck into the stamp room to design something for Ann to mass produce today.  I was very careful not to eat the Kit Kat bar that's hidden on the inside.  Remember!  Chocolate is poisonous to dogs.  They may or may not die from it, but they'll never get rid of it from their bodies so don't let them have ANY! I digress.  This one's made from the Big Shot Two Tags Die and the Modern Label and Curly Label punches.  And I don't know why we didn't use the Stylin' Snowfolk stamp...
