Did you know? I didn't.

I can't believe that I just figured this out ~ or, rather, read about it on SUDSOL.  It is a website that I have belonged to forever ~ at least since I signed up to be a demonstrator all those years ago.  SUDSOL stands for Simply Unique Demonstrators Sharing Online.  It is a wonderful resource for sharing ideas, tips, experience and creativity.  Today a member mentioned that she used the old MAGNETIC PLATE (the one we used with the BIG SHOT) with the new embossing machine.  Duh!  Why didn't I think of that!!!  So, sorting through the old to find my ancient magnetic  plate, I tried it and it worked!!!  I am so happy and wanted to share in case you have an old one too!!

New DSP......

Coming to your mailbox SOON ~ the January to April Mini Catalog and NEW DSP!  Shannon reviews the DSP that's coming our way ~ or, did your catty already arrive???  I am still waiting!



Seaside Bay.....

FB_IMG_1668270994063 (2)I posted a picture of 'my' stamp set on the 12th ~ SEASIDE BAY.  It is included in the next mini catalog (coming to you in December) and available to order in January.  And, it is part of a collection of products (thank you Stampin' Up!).  I have the stamp set but none of the other products and can't order until December 1 (top of my list for sure).  This picture was taken by my team member, Kathy Winter, who attended OnStage in Pennsylvania and shows the dies, ribbon and a little of the DSP in the collection.  I have found several other pictures online and will share with you soon.  In the meantime, my apologies for no recent posts ~ two events coincided ~ the arrival of my sister, Sarah, recovering from knee replacement surgery on Wednesday last week and a holiday event to raise money for CHKD on Sunday.  The third event will be Thanksgiving and all my family will be arriving soon.  I have a feeling that I will post again on Friday this week.  So, have a wonderful Thanksgiving ~ relax and make a Gratitude List ~ it's a blessing.  Hugs.

I hope you are...........


The HAPPY FOREST FRIENDS collection is on pages 46 and 47 in the annual catalog and is the beginning of the 'kids section' of stamp sets.  I love this bundle and wanted you to see several different ways to use it.  What other possibility do you see?

Love this one that I found online.

Tool Kit

There is a TOOL KIT in the mini catalog that you should order if you don't already have it in your craft room.  Believe me it will save you a lot to trouble (as in mess) when you are embossing.  Katy (pictured) and I were talking about it in my Christmas Card class on Monday afternoon.  I wanted to make sure to reinforce how practical this tool is.

The EMBOSSING ADDITIONS TOOL KIT is on page 49 in the mini catalog and includes the embossing buddy, crafting tweezers, crafting brush and the tray.  You can see the tray above ~ mine is old and well used because whenever I am embossing I use it ~ often.  The Kit (#159971) is $27 and well worth it as it lasts forever and keeps your craft space much more tidy!!!
