The Perfect Gift & a Weekly Deal

The Perfect Gift & a Weekly Deal

Do you know someone who seems to have everything?  Well, of course, they CAN’T HAVE EVERYTHING, but it could sure seem like it when you’re out shopping for them. What to do?  Call the dog!  That’s what you should do!  Because I’ve got the answer! Save yourself time and effort and get them a personalized stamp and a stamp pad!  and maybe some not ecards and envelopes.  It doesn’t have to be their name and address.  If they’re a stamper, perhaps some little witty saying for the back of their cards. Like these two that Ann had made for me.   It would be...

Paper Storage for Scraps

Got a lot of scraps.  Check out this video that all got started when one of my favorite members of our 24/7 Stampers community was reorganizing her card stock and stampin’ supplies.  Since we’re more than a hop, skip and a jump away, here’s the video so everyone can get some ideas on how to store card stock and paper scraps. See it on You Tube here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8iCeUpSlG0 If you want more information about joining our 24/7 Community, find out more here.

It’s National Clean Your Room Day!

It’s National Clean Your Room Day!

Today would be a good day for Ann to clean her stamp room.  Yep.  I’m convinced of it because it’s National Clean Your Room Day today!  And we’re starting by using up some of our retiring ribbon and stamps. And she’d better clean it now because starting Sunday night, I’m closing the blog for a few days so that I can get a whole new look ready for you.  I’ll have something special going out to Ann’s newsletter readers so that they’ve got up to the minute news.  So if you’re not hooked up, get on our mailing list here. Here’s what she...

The Cat’s Out of the Bag!

Those of you late night stampers who follow me on Facebook found out last night.  I just couldn't wait until this morning!  It's such good news.  Ann screamed so loud, I think that she almost woke up my favorite huMAN even with his headphones on! Just watch this little 1 minute quickie and get all the grrrreat news!  (WARNING:  I'm sure they washed the stamp.  At least I hope they did.)   I see an air of frantic organizing in the not too distant future.

How to Prepare & Shop for the Free Shipping Sale

So were planning our strategy for buying the retiring colors and taking advantage of the big Free Shipping Sale that Stampin’ Up! has planned for this weekend.  It starts at midnight tonight (or shortly after) and stops Monday night.  This is NOT a time to procrastinate! Take a moment and watch our 90 second shopping training.  Be sure to watch it until the end so you can see how well I’ve trained Ann.  Share it with your friends by using your favorite button at the bottom of this post.  And don’t miss picking up your Wish List!   ...

Join Today’s Stamp Challenge

Are you home today and wishing you had someone to stamp with?  Well, today’s your lucky day! We’ll be stamping online with Ann at 10:45am Pacific Time (1:45pm Eastern Time) at the Master Stamper. Each month there are videos with written instructions for projects like the ones on the left.  The videos are more in depth than the quickie ones I direct for Ann for this site so you can rewind and play the parts you want to see more than once. And you know how it is!  You never know WHAT Ann will say next! Everyone loves the videos, but most members say that they love the live monthly...

Get Organized!

Get Organized!

It seems like many of our stampin' friends have things going on right now.  And one of those things is cold and flu!  So now that we got the free button and ribbon bundle with my Sale-A-Bration order to Ann, it's time to take out the Button Buddies stamp set that we haven't used in a while.  We can find the buttons, but where is the ribbon?  Our ribbon drawer is organized, but we don't keep short term ribbon there.  NOW what to do? (This is an oild picture with now retired ribbon.) Did you know that our live webinar about organization was one of...

Hooray for Friends!

Hooray for Friends!

Last year Stampin' Up! had a contest for people to send in a video of their stamp room.  We didn't do it because we'd just finished putting in our last 2 IKEA tables, but we're glad that our friend Tamzin did!  Ann met Tamzin at convention a few years back over lunch.  We are so glad this happened to our friend from Texas!   You've just got to love what Stampin' Up! does for their demonstrators!  Ann said that even the employees ask about me when she sees them. If you're not loving the way it is at YOUR job, maybe it's time to...

She’s Back with a Sneak Peek!

Ann returned last night.  It was quite exciting for me as I have found her lost post.  I'll post that tomorrow.  You know, I didn't give her the doggy kisses that she thought she'd get as soon as she walked in the door.  First, she had to show me what she brought me home!  And here it is! I quickly shared it with my Facebook Fans last night, but here's an in depth look (just click on pictures for a closer sniff.) Left to right Those are the new IN COLOR Markers.  Could they be yours? The personalized trophy was from their 9 holes of golf...

Uh Oh!

I hate to leave anyone out & somehow this one did!  The Simple Birthday Thanks stamp got left off the Last Chance List  It's a great one to have whether you have kids or not. The Happy Birthday greeting from the Curly Cute stamp set was stamped on a piece that we ran through the Perfect Setting Big Shot Die.  We're saying Goodbye to that too!  You can get it for 40% off until June 30th!  GRAB IT!  The curvy piece makes great cupcake holders! Don't you just love those Basic Rhinestones that I had Ann color with our Sharpie markers? ...
