Peek-A-Boo Halloween Card

Is it too soon? That’s what Jimmy Kimmel would say.  It’s only August and we’re breaking out the Halloween cards! We’ve just been itching to get out the new stuff from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Happiness Catalog and now we got to! Yesterday, I oversaw (or is that undersaw because I’m so short?) Ann doing two online events so she could share all the new cool stuff from out of the Stampin’ UP! Holiday Catalog.  It was just more fun than a stamper could be allowed to have!  We’re doing it again tomorrow at 10:45a Pawcific Daylight time.  You should...

The Best Thank You Card

The Best Thank You Card

I’ve often barked that the best card is the one your friend or loved one is holding.  Yep!  It’s more important that they GET IT than having it sit on your stamp table waiting to be perfected. Barking that, Ann took the picture of yesterday’s card before she put one last piece on it.   Can you spot it?  You can see it here or keep reading for the deets. It’s just a little slight difference, but we stamped the greeting from the Oh, Lovely stamp set with Jet Black StazOn onto Melon Mambo and then cut it in half.  I prefer it.  Do you? And we’d be stocking up on...

Pink Punch Art Thank You Card

Pink Punch Art Thank You Card

Last week, our neighbor really saved us.  She came over and sent my laptop to Ann.  It surely wasn’t cheap and we really appreciated it.  Our thank you card to her was inspired by a swap that Ann got at convention.  But when you look at the two cards, they don’t really look alike. Go figure. This is the one that we made….just before it was finished.  If we add the one thing to it, I’ll post it this weekend.  Otherwise, this is good.  Well, at least this pup likes it so much that he’s going to pin it on Pinterest.  (Just use the pop up flag at the bottom of this...

Setting a Guinness World Record

Setting a Guinness World Record

Did you know that Ann helped set a World Record?  Yep!  Last week while at the Stampin’ Up! Convention, she helped set a World Record.  Here she is with the guy from the Guinness Book of World Records. They didn’t tell them what the goal was, but they did tell them that they only had three hours.  The line was long and Ann got in when there was only a little over a half hour left.  If you look in the picture, you’ll notice that way in the back, the edge of the computer monitor starts with “2″.  (It’s under the letter “d” on the truck.) They...

Stamper!  We didn’t tell them the Mystery Hostess code is 4EHEXBSX.  Why didn’t you tell me that I left your laptop in the stamp room? I’m doing a test and typing this out with one thumb on my phone. oh what fun! It’s nice that we have such good friends. I’ll write more about it when FedEx brings the laptop.Here’s a nice gift to share from Roz.        ...

What a Difference a Day Makes!

What a Difference a Day Makes!

So here we go!  Ann made the card in this post one way.  Then she swapped out the Daffodil Delight for Pool Party with our Yuba City Stamp Club.  And now that I’ve hidden the Very Vintage Designer Buttons, she added a butterfly instead! So how’s THAT for changing it up?!? I think it will make a great swap card for convention, don’t you? Uh-oh.  She just found the Very Vintage Designer Buttons. Before I finally share with you who won, I want to thank all of you for participating in our survey.  We love that you love us and the site.  Ann picked out the biggest, clearest font...

Six Sided Sampler & Digital Downloads

Don’t know why we haven’t used this much yet.  Could be because we lost our embossing folder.  But we got another one and we didn’t put it on this one either.  WE LOVE THIS BUNDLE!  And you should too!  Especially when we pair it with free Designer Series Paper! And we’ve been dying to use those Very Vintage Designer Buttons! This look is a little grungy.  Does that make it vintage?  It’s so different from the video we’re working on today for the Master Stamper.  That’s a beautiful clean dimensional lattice card with butterflies.  We run the range of...

Butterfly Birthday Card

Butterfly Birthday Card

Today’s butterfly card doesn’t have to be use ONLY as a birthday card.  It’s for any time that you want to grant a wish for your friend or loved one.  You could put a coupon in side for something special you’re going to do or throw in a gift certificate for their favorite store or experience.  (This pup loves a massage.) How appropriate because today’s Ann’s Mom’s birthday.  She’s up in heaven walking my predecessor, Johnny Walker, but we still remember her around here today as we do pretty much every day. I started to have Ann made the card...

Happy First Day of Summer!

Happy First Day of Summer!

It’s the longest day of the year – the first day of Summer and we’re in trouble already!  We started this card, well, I won’t tell you YET where the card started.  You’ll have to wait for the video where it will all be revealed.  But once we got into it, I see we have TWO things!  We started wanting to show you this as Implied Layering.  Thought that was a 50 cent name for it.  Then when we were finishing up, Ann made that paper buckle and now I can’t decide! I just know I like it a lot! We’ll be back soon with a shopping list, video and the whole...

40% Off?  No Way!

While Ann was away, I’m having a great time of personal one on one with my favorite huMAN.  But while Ann’s gone, I just can’t keep some things from my personal stamping buddies.  Ann’s favorite teenager is graduating from high school today so we picked one of our favorite cards to case so she could give it to her. She liked it so much, she found a matching balloon for it! (Psst!  Remember to use the hostess code this week!  We’re approaching $50 in free stuff just in the first day.  Find out more in this post. Because Ann shared these swaps with with the Master...
