Love Those Handmade Envelopes!

Ann was playing – yes, PLAYING – with the new Envelope Punch Board yesterday.  I couldn’t get her to settle down so I could film her until the wee hours.  Our video is in the can, but needs to be edited, so I’m thinking tomorrow.  You’re going to like it.  I’ll just show you part of the project because the gift card holder is going to be featured in our online classes on the Master Stamper. But we’ll be showing you how we used the new Envelope Punch Board here.  Don’t you worry!  We did the double camera thing again so that we could get you...

Birthday Hangover

Birthday Hangover

I think I have a birthday hangover today.  Ann let me play with her Smart Phone and take pictures of my birthday cards to share with all my 1,200 Facebook Fans.  That’s right!  For my birthday, I went over the 1,200 mark!  I am one blessed pup to have so many human friends! Ann spent the day doing a new welcome video for our new Master Stamper members so that they can get around the Master Stamper site even easier than it already is.  We have tons of videos over there.  Do you know that altogether, we have almost 400 videos?  Most of them are NOT on You Tube.  Some are duplicates, but...

It’s a Butterfly Special!

It’s a Butterfly Special!

If you didn’t get them before, you MUST get them now!  Stampin’ Up! has released an early birthday present for me so I’m doing an early party! Papillon Potpourri and the Bitty Butterfly Punch are selling as a bundle for 15% off!  It’s supposed to be for September, but in honor of my birthday on Monday, Stampin’ Up! is letting the butterflies go on sale early! At least that’s what Ann told me!  We even made a cool banner for the main page of my site to announce it! But in our haste, we forgot to use the Papillon Potpourri stamp set and paired it with the...

Black Halloween Card

Black Halloween Card

Yesterday, Ann made a card and did NOT follow my directions.  Not because she didn’t WANT to, but because her Black Chevron Ribbon was hiding from her.  It had slipped underneath the other ribbons. But now she has saved the card!  She did it to my specifications.  You can look in this post and see the old one.  Just make a comment below and let us know if I was right with the Black Chevron Ribbon or our Pumpkin Pie one yesterday is your favorite. I hope this helps you see how important color and color mix is.  Ann talks about that at the Master Stamper. I know this is our next big...

This Halloween Card Needs More Black!

This Halloween Card Needs More Black!

We’re going to roll it back to Halloween.  We’re talking about Christmas Card Classes and we haven’t even hit Labor Day yet!  You humans are still finding it acceptable to wear white shoes! I told Ann to put a BLACK RIBBON on this card.  The only problem is that she found the Basic Black ribbon in the drawer AFTER we put the card together!  RUFF! Still, this is a grrrreat card made with the hostess set that you can get for free from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Seasonal Catalog. A card with this layout would be grrrreat to send to me for my birthday on September 2nd. ...

Easy Flower Card

You know me.  Quick & easy.  Fast & fabulous.  Yep, that’s this dog. I went through Ann’s Shoebox Swap cards and found one that is just like me – fast & fabulous!  I think it was designed by Mary in Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder and Pear Pizzazz. I hope you like it as much as I do.  I think I’ll get Ann to write herself a note so that she’ll do this for the Mystery Hostess Party we’re having here at the house in September.  But YOU can participate in a Mystery Hostess Party TODAY.  Just shop in our online store and use the code below. ...

Shoebox Swap Getaway

Shoebox Swap Getaway

Gladys stopped by and swooped Ann away for the day yesterday.  They went on a demonstrator only jaunt to Vacaville to meet up with Valory and a dozen other demonstrators from around Northern California.  to stamp each others’ projects, chat & have fun.  (That’s CHAT, NOT CHANT!) Gladys did some presentations and won for the best project.  Ann brought my favorite huMAN a Bacon Cheeseburger and a half a cheesecake from Nation’s.  (a Burger and Pie Joint they haven’t been to in a few years.)  All in all, she was fine without me and I was well rid of her so that my...

Punch Art Sneak Peek!

We did this card last night with or Yuba City Stamp Club.  It was a favorite!  That is, except for my friend Amy who is allergic to Valentine’s Day. Thank you to all of you who joined the Master Stamper yesterday!  Ann was up until the wee hours this morning putting the finishing touches on that Piano Card video. She’ll be posting the written instructions later today. So we’re now doing a sneak peek into a card that we’ll be featuring on the Master Stamper this weekend.  This is the prototype.  We made a few changes to the bow so it looks even better.  Members will...

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...
