Technique Tuesday

Posted on June 19, 2019

Technique Tuesday Hello everyone, here are the instructions for the June 18th Technique Tuesday cards.  I hope you enjoyed the Live cast (sorry about the audio).  If you didn’t see it LIVE, it is on replay on my business page and YouTube.  You can make this a regular sized card with a few adjustments to the cuts.  This card is 5 ½”x5 ½” so it will require extra postage since it can’t go through the mailing machines. This is aRead More

It takes a year!

Posted on June 10, 2019

Why is all your own home projects take so long? It takes a year! Really it does. I have been working on a remodel of one of our bathrooms. Thank goodness we have 3! We started June of 2018, took a road trip after the demo, and I can’t remember anything else after that. Seriously, I can’t. Here we are June 2019 and the project is almost complete. Almost! My hubby and I both do the demo, he does allRead More

Any Die Cutting & Embossing Machine

Posted on May 16, 2019

You can use Any Die Cutting & Embossing Machine you want!  That’s right use a Big Shot, Cuttle Bug, Gemini, Spellbinder, or Vagabond to name a few.  Stampin’ Up! will no longer be carrying the Big Shot in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, and yes, it is sad.  But it opens a whole new world for us demonstrators.  Think about your clients that are fighting arthritis, carpel tunnel, or tendonitis, etc.  You can recommend an electric machine like the Vagabond orRead More

Posted on May 14, 2019

I was checking out some info on my support Facebook page the other day and came across an interesting LIVE video. These lovely European demonstrators were doing a live video in three languages! English, French & German. I watched and learned a new technique! Always Learning Always Growing…that is a great motto. So here’s what I learned. To give your images some depth, use your stampin’ write markers or daubers. I took their information and passed it along in myRead More

Where have I been

Posted on March 25, 2019

It seems that the harder I try the further behind I get!   Where have I been?   It’s not that hard to write a note, show a picture of what I’ve been up to, and include the ingredients to the projects. So, here goes…I have been going crazy trying to accomplish too much in too short a time and not getting anything finished.  That’s where I’ve been.   I gutted my spare bathroom last June, it is still unfinished!  I have theRead More

Perennial Birthday

Posted on November 25, 2018

Perennial Birthday stamp set is so awesome!  I am trying to focus on the beginner & casual stamper right now and this set is perfect for that.  Check out this birthday card.  I CASE’d (Copy and Share with Everyone) this from Pinterest and bumped it for the casual stamper as well.   I used Thick Whisper White card stock as my card base (8 1/2″x5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″) and my stampin’ write 2018-20 In-color markers to color theRead More
