Watercolor Wonder Crayons are now available!!

Watercolorwonder

Great news! The Watercolor Wonder Crayons are now available for purchase. The Watercolor Wonder Crayons were delayed due to a relocation of the supplier. You can start ordering today!

When you receive your Watercolor Wonder Crayons, you may notice that some of the crayon sleeves feature old artwork on them. This does not affect the quality of the crayons; we simply need to deplete inventory of crayons with the old artwork before we use crayons featuring the new artwork.

Use the following item numbers to purchase your Watercolor Wonder Crayons:

  • 120949 New Color Kit
  • 119802 Subtles
  • 119803 Regals
  • 119804 Brights
  • 119805 Neutrals

Thanks for your patience!

Clear Mount Stamp Case - Notefolio

Foliocandycanechristmasout I just love this greeting from the Tags til Christmas set (W120847 or C121169) and it is so true!!!   I made this Notefolio (made up word?) for a certain someone on my list this year who shall remain nameless.  They are easy to make, inexpensive and will fare well in a purse or tote as the embellishments are all under the plastic cover!!  In the past, I have purchased the metal DVD tins online to make these but the shipping was EXTREMELY high.  I was thrilled to realize that I can make them in our Clear Mount Stamp Cases #119105 and they are only $4.95 for four cases, what a bargain.  You can get them in my Online Store right now.

Foliocandycanechristmasin We will be making another version of this at my annual Holiday Gifts Stamp Camp this Saturday, December 4th in my Stampin' Studio in Sheridan, Wyoming.  You can see the other projects on my Facebook Page, remember to "like" me when you get there!!

If you are in the neighborhood and would like to join us, shoot me an email and let me know that you are coming.  The cost is $25 and I ask that you bring your own SNAIL adhesive.  

1group100 All online orders placed until 11:00pm MST on Tuesday during the Holiday Spectacular sale will be entered in a drawing for a FREE Be A Big Shot At Home Kit.  The November kits went out last week-I have one left and maybe it will be yours!!

Holly & Jolly Rub-Ons card set & the Holiday Spectacular

Jollyholidaycardset I pulled out my Holly & Jolly Rub-ons #119249 and my Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper #117159 to throw this notecard and envelope set together.  Each card is a "front" only and would make the neatest holiday "thank you" cards.  I am really into quick and easy projects these days. :-) 

You get tons of colored Rub-ons in each package.  The colors are Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Very Vanilla.  You can order your set in my Online Store right now!!  Don't forget that there are tons of great things on sale right now during the Holiday Spectacular and if your order is at least $150, you will get FREE shipping on it too!!

The base of the card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and the Very Vanilla layer is 4 x 5 1/4.  The strip of the Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper is 1 x 4, mounted on a 1 1/8 x 4 strip of Cherry Cobbler.  I then added the larger tree rub-ons in the bottom right corner.  Did you notice the tiny trees in the top left corner of the envelopes, too stinkin' cute!!!!

Join in the Cheer with another super quick Christmas Card

Happy Thanksgiving everyone, we will be going to my sister-in-laws house today and I cannot wait!!  It has been a long time. :-)

Here is a quick and easy card that you can make using your Big Shot and the Join in the Cheer Decorative Strip die #113452.  The die is on sale for 30% off through the end of the month during the Holiday Spectacular.  Go shopping in my Online Store and get yours today!  This is one of the projects that my Be a Big Shot At Home Class Members made this month.

1peacecard 
I stamped one of the snowflakes from the Serene Snowflakes set #115438 in Whisper White Craft Ink and allowed it to dry a bit.  I added the strip of Old Olive and then ran a piece of Riding Hood Red through the Big Shot with the Join in the Cheer Decorative Strip die and cut the words apart.  Very simple and you could make a bunch in a very short time.  This is one of the projects that my Be A Big Shot At Home class participants will get to make this month with their kits. :-)

Mdaphoto 

Have you ever purchased something and wondered if it was really worth what you paid for it?

You might be asking yourself something similar about My Digital Studio. Isn’t the $79.95 price tag a little steep? Once you get My Digital Studio in your hands, however, the wondering will be over! You won’t believe the value for the money—and you’ll begin to ask yourself if Stampin’ Up! wasn’t crazy for letting it go at that price!

Our My Digital Studio boxed software includes nearly 2000 unique elements—stamps, embellishments, designer and photo templates, punches, Designer Series Paper, card stock and more. If you were to individually buy all of the products already included with the software, you would spend more than $500! Now, that’s a great value!

November 2010 Control Freaks Blog Tour - Holiday Gifts and Snow Ideas

Freaksmain 

Welcome to the November 2010 Tour de Freaks Blog Hop! We are so excited to have you join us today,  This month we are featuring Holiday Gifts and Snow Ideas made with products from Stampin' Up!.   Our tour is nice and short and features some of your favorite Control Freaks Stampers. You may have just come from my friend Connie Babbert's Blog or you may be one of my followers or you may have just stumbled here…however you got here, you’ll be very glad you did!  Be sure to take the whole tour! - welcome!

I had a ton of fun playing with our snowmen and snowflakes for my projects this month.  I used my favorite snow colors, Whisper White, and Marina Mist on all the projects.  Stampin' Up! has some wonderful stamp sets and Big Shot dies to help you get your creative groove on this Holiday Season!!

Scallop Squares Duo Bigz Die 120903
Crystal Effects 101055
Clear Rhinestone Brads 113144
Dazzling Diamonds Glitter 102023

Did you notice the icicles?  I created them by drawing lines of Crystal Effects on waxed paper and then using the tip of the bottle to drag a bit down from the initial line to create the icicles.  While they are still wet, dump our Dazzling Diamonds Glitter over them and allow them to dry.  When, they are dry, they will easily peel off the waxed paper, add a little of our Multipurpose Liquid Glue and place them on your projects. 

Jollyjinglesgcholder Next up is a Gift Card Holder and we all need at least one of these this season.  There is always someone who is hard to buy for and this is the perfect gift for them. Come back in a few days and I will have a FREE tutorial on making this for you.

Jollybingobitsornamentclosed My last project for you is a Christmas Tree Ornament.  I found these little tins while cleaning and organizing last month and just knew I would make ornaments with them.  I punched a 1 3/4 Circle out of Marina Mist and stamped the snowflakes in the same color.  I then ripped some Whisper White, layered it on the circle to mimic snow, added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the edges and trimmed it to the sameJollybingobitsornamenttop  size.  The little snow people are from the Jolly Bingo Bits set and I hand cut them out and placed them in the "snow" after coloring them with my Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz Stampin' Write Markers.I punched a hole in the top of the tin with my Crop-A-Dile and added the ribbon for a hanger.  To seal the tin, I ran some Sticky Strip around the seam and covered it with some of our Marina Mist Satin Ribbon.  To prevent the "snow" (White Chunky Essentials Glitter) from falling out, I added a snowflake from the Northern Frost Strip Die with Mini Glue Dots to the top. 

That's it for me, I hope you enjoyed this stop of the Control Freaks Tour.  Now it's on to the next stop.  One of my best demo buddies, Dawn Olchefske!!
