Monthly Picks Hot Buttons

Posted June 7, 2013 By scrappy

I’ve added 3 hot links to my Home page that I will update monthly.  The 3 highlighted SU products are favorites or next on my own shopping list and intended for scrapbookers and/or papercrafters that already have at least the basics in tools and stamps in their own inventory of supplies.  With that in mind – some of the products might require an existing tool – most often the BigShot ;) , in order to be of use.    hmmmm – that gives me a good idea, which I will work on this weekend and get back to yo’all.

how do your stamp pads hold up?

Posted June 7, 2013 By scrappy

Have you ever reached for a stamp pad that you purchased a couple of months ago – only to discover that it was already dried out or very close to it?This wasn’t what I was going to post today, but while I was working on a technique video I took out an old stamp pad from when I attended my first stampin’ up “party”…  then I took all four of them out just to see:

Sure, I’ve had them stored upside down (that’s how you did things back then) – but everyone of them created an image just like they were new out of the box!  How old R they?…  I tracked them to their earliest appearance in my scrapbooking:  Early 2000!  That is over 13 years.   If I’m lying, I’m dying.  impressive  – even to a long time SU fan and demonstrator.

Where to start?!?!

Posted June 2, 2013 By scrappy

Received my new 2013/2104 Stampin UP Catalog yesterday!   I’ve always been curious where everybody else starts – but I make a bee line to the NEW Designer Series Papers.  It’s fun to pick out which ones I THINK are going to be my favorites – sometimes I’m surprised with others that I didn’t think I would use as much but do.  So here is my own prediction for this catalog:

soho subway DSP Afternoon picnic DSP

* Soho Subway DSP 130140 (Left)

* Afternoon Picnic 131390 (Right)

Hope everyone knows that the catalog is available on-line (downloadable in PDF format) so you can begin making your WISH lists. As my upline tagged: Want a little? Place an order… Want a lot?  Host your own party!… Want it ALL? Become a Demonstrator!

Browse through the new catalog from my stampinUP webpage
