Stampin' Up! Snailed It!

Stamp setWe used this stamp set, SNAILED IT, yesterday in my Valentine Card Class.  You can find it on page 55 in the January ~ June Mini Catalog.

Snail ValentineThis is the card we made  in class.  The cute snail on the front is part of the coordinating designer series paper.  The set is bundled with SNAIL DIES (saving you 10%) & one of the dies cut out the snail on the DSP. The same die cuts out the stamped image so you can have lots of cute snails!

Stampin' Up!'s Multipurpose Liquid Glue ~ a great idea!

IMG_5736When my friend (and fellow demonstrator) Barbara Schweiger came to STAMP CLUB on Wednesday night she also brought a great idea with her.  The picture above shows her idea on how to be sure that the glue in the Multipurpose Liquid Glue bottle is instantly ready to be used ~ no waiting for the glue to run to the opening in the bottle ~ no shaking the bottle while it gets to the right location!!  

You can find this bottle of glue on page 162 in Stampin' Up!'s annual catalog.  It is #3 and is $4.00 per bottle.  I really like it and use it often because it does not dry instantly and allows you to move your cardstock around if you are layering and trying to get those margins just right!  

Barbara bought the little plastic cups (on the right side) at the $ Store.  She used her hot glue gun to add hot glue in the bottom of the cup, added the green cap of the bottle of glue to the hot glue (made sure it was standing correctly) and added additional hot glue around the cap.  The cap holds the Multipurpose Liquid Glue upright insuring the glue is always quickly available when you need it!  Thanks, Barb!!!

Stampin' Up! & Hippo Happiness


And, today, it's this cute hippo from my friend, Barbara Schweiger, who has been in love with FIONA since the day she was born!  

81JFqSYjY5L Last night Barbara came to our regularly scheduled STAMP CLUB and brought a darling little box of 3" x 3" cards that she had made with the stamp set HIPPO HAPPINESS on page 49 in Stampin' Up!'s Annual Catalog.  

IMG_5738This is a BUNDLE so you don't have to worry about fussy cutting all these cute little animals.  Bundles save you 10% right off the top and the cost for the bundle is $48.50 so you just need to add a tiny bit to qualify for a SALE-A-BRATION FREE product!
