What a mess.........

I am busy, busy, busy preparing for my CALENDAR CLASSES that begin on Sunday afternoon and, I have created quite a mess.  And, I have only completed January through July ~ I still have a long way to go!!!  I do like what I have created so far which makes me feel good.  I didn't want to 'not post here' but I don't have time to create a meaningful post!  Sorry.  Just wanted you to know what was going on in the Cat/Art Studio on National Cat Day!

Stampin' Seal Advice

This is such a great little video that I had to share it with you ~ great advice from New Zealand.  I have delayed using this new adhesive because I wanted to use my supply of Stampin' Up!'s previous adhesive ~ SNAIL.  You can find the NEW on page 162 in the Annual Catalog.  Stampin' Seal (152813) is $8 and the refill (152814) is $5.50.  Stampin' Seal + (149699) is $12 and the refill (152812) is $8.00.  I have had difficulty using Stampin' Seal but the advice from this lovely Demonstrator has made my life easier.  Stampin' Seal + is wonderful!  


A LITTLE REMINDER ~ Today is the last day to sign up for my NOVEMBER CALENDAR CLASSES ~ Sunday, November 1, Thursday, November 5 or Saturday, November 7.  All classes are at 1 PM.  EMAIL ME NOW to sign up!

In The Pines w Stampin' Up!

10.20_DBWS_THUMBNAIL_MONTHLY_FOCUSYou can find this bundle, IN THE PINES, on page 43 in Stampin' Up!'s Fall Mini Catalog.  The bundle includes a stamp set, In The Pines, and a set of dies, Pine Woods Dies.  I have noticed a number of times in this catalog that it can be very hard to find the information about the bundles.  I can't imagine why Stampin' Up! would want to hide that information ~ after all it saves us 10% right off the top!  Look at the top of page 43 for the bundle information.  Enjoy the quick video below from Stampin' Up!  And, by the way, as far as I know there is no sound.




World Card Making Day
Magic in This Night DSP, page 53, Mini Catalog

This is the card I made on WORLD CARD MAKING DAY, what did you make?  It was the first Saturday of this month ~ a special day to create ~ and the following week was CARD SENDING WEEK.  Stampin' Up! wants to know how many cards we sent and their GOAL IS 60,000 CARDS (worldwide!)!  Let me know by Thursday (that's tomorrow) at 6 PM how many cards you made so I can 'collect' and report for us!!!  Think about the week beginning October 5, add them up and let me know.  I made a dozen of the card above but I have several left...I did send others though, what about YOU?  Let me know..........


World Card Sending Week is over and we want to count how many cards the Stampin’ Up! family sent. Our global goal is 60,000 cards, so we want you to reach out to your family, friends, and customers and find out how many cards they sent during World Card Sending Week. Report the total to us (including your own cards), by 23 October!

Every card counts, so keep adding right up to the last minute (the survey link can be used multiple times). Watch for the rising thermometer recording the totals on Facebook. We’re literally counting on you!

Tuesday Project Sheet ~ freezin.....

My friend, Phyllis, left Norfolk a few years ago to move to Minnesota ~ partly to create a happy home with her husband, Mickey, and partly because she LOVES SNOW!  Yesterday she posted a picture on FB of the first snow ~ her front yard was very snowy, very pretty and, I am sure made Phyllis, very happy!  Phyllis ~ this one's for YOU!


The BUNDLE is FREEZIN' FUN and includes the stamp set of the same name and a set of dies, FREEZIN' FRIENDS DIES which you can find on page 69 in Stampin' Up!'s Fall Mini Catty.  So cute!  This set will be fun way after December and, in Minnesota ~ maybe even into April or May! Download it for some winter fun.....
