Love when UPS delivers!!! All for me ;)

Have you ever my Demonstrator Jen DiMarco really as addicted to Stampin' Up! as she says she is even 6 years later?

What does the pic above tell you? Yes, yes and yes!!  So glad I took a pic of my goodies before I cracked them open for use!  The top right are my new Decor Elements! Can't wait to put them up! Look here....

Here is my current Stampin' Up! Clear Mount Stamp Set collection. Notice they are stored in DVD cases and the images of the stamps are on the side!! *BRILLANT*

Here is a pic of how the Love Bots kits arrive. Yes, I did also buy the personalized name stamps for my kiddos...super cute!  You get 30 of the boxes for just $13.25  . Can't wait to see the kiddos work on them!  If you haven't see the love bots in the Occasions Mini's a pics of some of them and the description...

Love Bots are just the thing for Valentine’s Day—sign the outside, fill with conversation hearts or other tasty treats, and deliver. To make it even quicker, use the Love Bots personalized name stamp to sign them! Your child can use the stamp later to stamp their personal belongings. But you don’t need to limit them to valentines—they’re equally good for party favors and thank-you gifts. Available in BOY or GIRL designs.

■ Folded box: 3" x 3" x 5/8"
■ 30 boxes per kit: 15 sheets per kit, 5 each of 3 designs
■ 1 sheet per kit of clear stickers (for sealing boxes)
■ Coordinates with Love Bots personalized name stamp

Pocket Silhouettes Card


This weekend I headed to downtown Montreal, QC with some of my bffs for a Saturday stamping fest!  Its fun to stamp in your own home, in your own city... but if you can take your goodies on the road and make a girls weekend in "the big city" just 2 hours away- why not!?  We stayed at the Delta Hotel Downtown Montreal...I'd love the share the cards with you - but they are top secret (the theme was Valentine's day and I don't want to spoil the cards for their hubbies!).

So instead...above you'll see one of the other cards we made using the Stampin' Up! Pocket Silhouettes Stamp set.  Still love this stamp set soo much!  We did add glitter, but it didn't come out in the pic too much..

And here is a pic of me being silly in the elevator as we were heading back home...

Next month I'm heading with my Stampin' Up! sisters to Syracuse, New York for the Stampin' Up! Regional Seminar!!! It like a mini convention...and I can't wait!  Over the years I have been to one in Halifax, Nova Scotia, one in Montreal, QC, one in Quebec City, QC...but this time I'm driving down to the US to Syracuse!!  I am super excited! Its just after my birthday we're going to make a full weekend out of it!

Don't forget....for those of you in the Ottawa area...if you haven't already registered for my classes and open stamps next weekend - there are only a couple of seats still available!  You are not considered registered until payment is received in full and I have emailed you your confirmation number. You can pay via paypal or EMT.  We will be using some of the new Clear Mount Stamps and Heart Sweet Treat Centers!

Would you like to schedule your own class or workshop to earn FREE Sale-a-bration products? Just ask!

Happy Stamping,

New Punch Design coming with Sale-a-bration 2010 and Occasions Mini 2010 !!

Starting with the new 2010 Occasions Mini Catalog and continuing with all new punch designs going forward, Stampin' Up! has adopted a new body style for our punches!

A few features of the new punch style:
  • Low-profile, rectangular punch body allows for easier stacking and storing
  • Punches lock shut for easier storage and transport
  • Dual labels on top and end allow for easy identification and selection when stored
  • Available in three sizes: small, medium, and extra-large
  • New punches allow for larger punched images and more intricate designs while providing greater ease of use.
    • Extra -large punch images also allow for two-step designs like the Two-Step Bird punch in the Occasions Mini Catalog

Part of Stampin' Up!'s commitment to providing YOU with the very best crafting tools includes the belief in what we call continuous improvement. Essentially what this means is that even if something works very well, but they see a chance to improve it, they will work to make it even better. While new punch designs will be in the new body style, existing designs will remain in the existing body style for now. Available January 5, 2010!
