2013 Banner

Today as we took down our Christmas decorations, everything became a little bare.  I knew we needed some type of decoration for the new year so I quickly put this banner together.
How do you decorate for New Year's Eve or do you go straight to Valentine's decor?

Tree with some sparkle

This was one of my favorite cards from November's Stamp-a-Stack class!  Be sure to join me in January for our next Stamp-a-Stack.  The tree is stamped with Garden Green ink, I wiped off the bottom of the tree and the ground with a blender pen, and then I colored those parts in with a marker...ta-da...perfectly stamped tree!  The Silver Glimmer paper adds just the right effect to this card!  Order your supplies here.

Two NEW Products Now Available!


I’m so excited to tell you about two new Sizzix products that are now available! 


Stampin’ Up! is offering the Texture Boutique Embossing Machine in our North American markets. We have 4,000 available to be sold only while supplies last. If this product test goes well, we may offer the Texture Boutique again in the future.

The Texture Boutique works with Textured Impressions Embossing Folders to transform ordinary cardstock, paper, metallic foil, or vellum into an embossed, textured masterpiece. This machine embosses only; it does not die cut. Because this is a product test, the Texture Boutique is not branded with the Stampin' Up! logo. We recommend you read the included instructions before using the Texture Boutique.
'Tis the season of giving, and the Texture Boutique makes a wonderful gift for anyone who wants to create their own elegant embossed art. To help you with your gift-giving needs, we're offering a special value bundle that saves you $5.90. If you prefer, you can also purchase the Texture Boutique alone. Looking for stocking stuffers? Pick up some additional embossing folders.  They are $7.95 each.

Texture Boutique Bundle--Item 132700--$39.95 (a $45.85 value)
Includes:  Texture Boutique Embossing Machine, 1 Pair of Standard Embossing Pads, 1 Mylar Shim,  the Flower Garden Textured Impressions Embossing Folder-Stampin' Up! exclusive, Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder-Stampin' Up! exclusive
Texture Boutique Embossing Machine--Item 132657--$29.95
Includes:  Texture Boutique Embossing Machine, 1 pair of Standard Embossing Pads, 1 Mylar Shim
See a fun video here.

Watch for more details soon!!!! J  It’s always a great sale!

AND one more announcement…. it has been hard to keep this a secret-we're so excited about it! We have created a card-making application, and we already have a great name for it: Simply Sent! This iPhone app (iPhone only for now) allows customers to create an e-card-from a template or completely on their own-and send it via e-mail or post it on Facebook. And it's free!

Here's something you should know about this app: it's not My Digital Studio on a mobile device, not even close. This scaled-back version will only give customers a taste of what they can create when they buy MDS. We want to get our name and our art out there so more people than ever before will know about Stampin' Up! We hope you'll get excited about it as well and that you'll do the following:
Download it from iTunes or the App Store, share it with all your friends, and post a review! The more positive reviews it gets, the more prominent place it takes in the iTunes store.

Try it out!

Trimmer is HERE! Get FREE ink!


Happy November!
TODAY you can order the new and improved Stampin' Trimmer! Although paper trimmers are a common crafting tool, this trimmer was designed exclusively by paper crafters for paper crafters -and because it was made by Stampin' Up!, you know it's a cut above the rest!


Features of the All-New Stampin' Trimmer
  • An extra-wide 6-1/4" cutting base and an extended 14-1/2" ruler
    • The extra-wide cutting base provides a large work area and is marked in 1/4"
      (4 mm) increments, allowing for small measurements. 
    • The right-side grid helps you measure and cut very thin strips.
    • The extended cutting arm has a stabilizing leg to provide a sturdy and steady cutting surface for longer cuts. 
    • When fully extended, the extended cutting arm sits flush with the trimmer base, providing more accurate and consistent measurements across the entire surface.
    • The cutting base and track include a full ruler, incorporating measurements down to 1/16" and grid lines that mark each quarter inch. 
    • All rulers and measurements on the base are printed under a plastic cover so your measurements won't wear off.
    • The base has nonskid feet, which keeps the Stampin' Trimmer securely in place on your work area.
  • A full 12" cutting and scoring track
    • The extra-long cutting track has space at the top and bottom so you don't have to take the cutting and scoring blades out when you're not using them. 
    • The track gives you enough space to cut or score a full 12" (30.5 cm) without having to remove or switch out handles. 
    • The cutting track locks in place for secure storage or transport. 
    • The track includes an insertion point for cutting and scoring blade handles so you can easily insert handles into the cutting track.
  • Specially designed handles and cutting track to ensure straight cuts
    • The hook on the scoring and cutting blade handles keeps the handles stable so the cuts are as straight as possible.
    • Handles come in two colors: dark for cutting, light for scoring. 
    • The precision tip on the cutting blade allows you to pinpoint precisely where you're cutting.
    • The point on the side of each handle shows you where the blade will cut, making it easy to see exactly where your cuts and scores will begin.
  • Storage compartment under base
    • The storage compartment holds scoring and cutting tools such as a Bone Folder, Simply Scored Stylus, extra scoring and cutting blades, and even business cards. 
    • Separate compartments within the storage compartment keep your tools organized, and the clear cover makes it easy to see what you've stored.
  • Product details: item 126889; $29.95

Quick Box

I made this quick little box using the Petal Card Punch.  Punch out four petal cards, apply sticky strip, and you have a quick box!
Yes, it's very tiny but oh, so cute!  I added DSP to add some more color!  Can you believe we are less than a week away from Halloween!?!?!?  So crazy!  This year has gone by so quickly!

Frankie Purse

I saw some ideas a few weeks ago of Halloween purses from this fun die.  I couldn't wait to create a few.  Here's the first one I came up with!
Isn't Frankie cute?!?!  So simple to create...just cut out the purse body in Old Olive and the purse flap in Elegant Eggplant.  I couldn't help but add the Googlie Eyes :)  I attached the handle with the silver brads.  Such a fun and easy treat holder!  Order your supplies here.
Cardstock:  Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant
Ink:  Basic Black Marker
Accessories:  Big Shot, Petite Purse Die, Googlie Eyes, Brads, Sticky Strip

Sucker Pumpkin

Today we're off to the Pumpkin Patch so I knew which project I wanted to share today!
Isn't this pumpkin fun?  I just cut a strip of CS about 2" x 8 1/2" and scored it at every 2", punched a hole for the tootsie pop stick to come through, inserted the sucker, and sealed it up with Sticky Strip.  I added a pumpkin on front and on back (3 Extra-Lg. Ovals) and added a face.  Stamped the greeting on Gumball Green CS with the illuminate glimmer stamp pad, punched out with the word window punch, punched out a hole for the tag to fit on the stick, slide it on, and tied it up with ribbon!  Order your supplies here.
Cardstock:  Pumpkin Pie
Ink:  Basic Black Marker, Illuminate Glimmer
Stamps:  Teeny Tiny Wishes
Accessories:  Paper cutter & scoring blade, Ribbon, Word Window & Extra-Lg. Oval Punches


Check out the Clearance Rack today...over 70 items have been added!!!  Envelopes in Naturals White & Naturals Ivory for $2.59 are a STEAL.  You bet I stocked up to mail out Christmas cards!  I also ordered the magnet sheets.  I NEED these to store my Framelits in the Clear-Mount Stamp Cases so the Framelits aren't all over everywhere and getting lost!  They still have a bit of 99 cent fabric as well!  Order now!  Supply is limited and will go QUICKLY at these prices!
