This is such a nice video and I have been looking forward to sharing it with you.  It gives you information about the production of Stampin' Up!'s red rubber stamps and focuses on the Sale-A-Bration stamp set, FEELS LIKE HOME, on page 6 in the SAB brochure.  It is always interesting to see 'how' something is produced.  I have been on the production line in Kenab where these stamps are produced several times.  It is always fascinating and I wish every one of you could be there in person.  Let me know what you think about the process. 



Quiet Meadow Bundle

QUIET MEADOW Bundle is on page 110 in Stampin' Up!'s annual catalog.  The stamp set is bundled with a set of six natural looking flower dies, two butterfly dies and two tags. The quiet Stampin' Up! video below will show you two impressive cards made with this bundle. 


And, this is a card I made using this bundle for my BLENDER BRUSH CLASS 102.  I used one of the flower dies to create a mask and used the blender brush to add color around the flower mask.  I adhered the die cut to the card by rolling mini glue dots between my fingers and then added three of them to the back of the mask.  I rolled the dots to make them less sticky so that I could easily remove the die cut once I added the color.  What do you think?


A Little More about HATS OFF!

I hope you enjoyed the Tuesday Project Sheet this week, the video below will show you a little more about the bundle, HATS OFF on page 47 in Stampin' Up!'s annual catalog.  On the same page is a little more information about the Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.  It works with dies up to 3 3/8" wide and is great for creating on the go.  My friend, Janet Hayden, ordered one on Monday using her HOST REWARDS from STAMP CLUB!  She is a stamper and an avid scrapbooker who travels with friends to spend weekends away scrapping ~ so excited for her!  I know she'll love it!
