Great Deal on the Big Shot

Have you had the Big Shot on your wish list for months...maybe even years now? This awesome machine is so versatile! You wouldn't believe the things it can do. Let me list a few to share...keeping in mind that this isn't all it can do, just some.

1. Produces beautiful die cuts to use in scrapbooking, greeting cards, or in craft projects.
2. Cuts fabric for quilting (believe me, this saves so much time rather than cutting each peice by hand for a quilt).
3. Dry Embosses paper for an elegant look to cards, scrapbooks, invitations, and more.
4. Create your own "paper doll" fridge magnets for your kids.
5. It will cut cardstock, paper, magnet sheets, cork, fabric, denim, leather, aluminum, tin, beeswax, foam, rubber, batting, fleece, vinyl, and the list goes on!

Think of the wonderful things you could do with a big shot and a few dies. Well, here is your chance to get started and get a Big Shot at in an awesome deal!

Order your Big Shot from me between now and August 14th and I will give you a FREE Die or Embossing Folder of your choice up to $21.95. All you have to do is mention this deal when you place your order with me. Call me at 435.752.1799 to place your order, or send me an email at If you have questions or want a tutorial on how the Big Shot works...let me know! That is what I am here for.

Happy Die Cutting!

Make your own paper

Folks...I know the last thing you are looking for is another My Digital Studio post, but really, it does so much! I have a stamp set that has been on my wish list for months now Baroque Motifs #113490 $27.95

I love this set and it is so versatile depending on what colors you stamp it in. I just haven't had the money to purchase it...but...the digital version is FREE with your purchase of MDS! I broke it out this morning thanks to some inspiration from a fellow stamper. I made my own DSP(Designer Series Paper) using MDS and then just printed it out and used snail to put it on the card front. This is what you call a hybrid card, partly made in MDS, and embellished with actual embellishments.

I used: MDS, digital Baroque Motifs stamp set (in Early Expresso, Pear Pizzazz, Baja Breeze, and Riding Hood Red), Occasional Quotes Stamp Set, Early Expresso Ink, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Riding Hood Red Card Stock, Baja Breeze Card Stock, Whisper White Card Stock, Snail, and Dimensionals.

Easy Peasy I tell you! I can show you more if you want. Give me a jingle! Visit my website for more fun things and shop 24/7.

Join the Club?!

Yes, join the club! Have you ever thought about joining a stamp club and then thought...

I don't know how.
I am not creative.
I am not good with my hands.
What is the point?
I don't know anyone else in it.

Have I got answers for you, so listen up!

Here are the top reasons for joining my stamp club (details about the club to read on!)

1. You will make new friends who enjoy the same thing as you.
2. You get 1 night out a kids, husbands, boyfriends, or anything else that ties you down..a cat maybe?
3. You have something to show for taking just an hour or 2 for yourself.
4. You will make something you can give away (or keep if you like) and make a friend or family memeber smile.
5. You will learn to stamp, scrapbook, and make!
6. Free goodies for club memebers (you have to come and see)
7. Free Idea Book and Catalog for each member (this includes current mini catalogs as well)
8. Gives you an excuse to pamper yourself just once a month and not feel guilty.
9. It will give you great ideas so you can recreate what we make without the guess work.
10. Exclusive promotions to those in the club.

See...doesn't that sound awesome!?! Thats because it is! :)

Here is the deal... We get a group of 8 people together who enjoy stamping and papercrafting. All 8 people commit to placing an order for $20(before tax and shipping) each month from any current catalog they choose. You buy whatever you want because that is yours to keep! The club runs for 8 months (notice 8 members) so that each person gets a chance to be the hostess of the month and earn the hostess rewards for their month. As hostess you will recieve a minimum of 1 free stamp set AND $15 in free product of your choice. I will do it at my house (so you don't have to clean), or if you would like to do it at your house we can do that too!

This is too good to pass up! Send me an email, call me, or reply to this post if you are interested and I will give you more info and answer any questions you may have.

Happy crafting and hope to see you in the club!

As promised...

I told you I would post something I made myself in My Digital Studio. Here it is people! I threw this little card together really quick and it is done with things already preloaded into the software. Nothing in this card cost extra!

So I hope you enjoy the card. It really is easy! Let me know if you want to try your own!

Have a good night!


My Digital Studio Color Update

Did you know that you if you have My Digital Studio (MDS) from Stampin' Up!, or if you want MDS, that you can get all the new updated colors for FREE?!?! Thats right folks....FREE! This is over $50 worth of downloads for the new colors at no cost to you. I updated mine and it is amazing.
Check out the online info for My Digital Studio, but I can of course get you more if you want it.

I am really, really loving the MDS software. I had been using a free version of something similar for my digital scrapbooking and it just doesn't compare to this. It is very user friendly and of course has all the exclusive Stampin' Up! colors, papers, and lots of stamps already built in when you buy the software.

You could purchase all those things seperately and use them in a program of your choice, but when spend the money on that when you can buy the software and get it all included for less than what the downloads would cost individually? Think smart people! I finally did. :)

Plus Stampin' Up! posts regular updates, new downloads, and has tons of support for MDS. You really can't go wrong. If you would like to have your own copy, view my copy at my house, or just want more information give me a call.

As always, you can place your order right online at my shop. You will find My Digital Studio under the Digital Crafting section.

Check out the awesome boxes that I made using MDS! I will of course post more projects using this fabulous software later. I am finally doing a scrapbook of our trip to Disney last October!

If you are interested in getting your own copy of MDS, checking out my copy at my house, or just want more info then let me know!

Thanks for visiting. :)


Want something not in the new catalog?

Here is a great little flyer for some things that are available to purchase, but not in the current catalog. I am loving the "For the Bride" set. It makes its appearance in the Spanish version of the new catalog, but it is available in English as well! Woo Hoo!

If you are interested in joining my family...let me know!



Want to Re-Join in the Fun?!

Of course you do! Here is a fantastic opportunity for past demonstrators to re-join Stampin' Up! for just $35. That is unheard of! Give me a call or send me an e-mail for all the details.

Hope you all have a great day!
