Tuesdays Tips on Wednesday - I know I'm off by a day

I am so sorry for being off my schedule this week.  I took a day off work and it threw me for a loop! 

So I have a great tip for you guys today.  Have you ever had a problem with your cardstock cracking when you emboss it?  I have especially the Whisper White with the dynamic embossing folders.  So here's what you can do to make this better.

Use a piece of vellum in your embossing folder!  Make the sandwich - 1. vellum, 2. cardstock,  3. embossing folder and it helps ease the cracking!  Give it a try this week!

Happy Crafting!

Bubble Over Bundle Overview

Say that title 10 times fast wow!  I just got this set yay!  I'm so excited and can't wait to get this set in my hands!!!!  I'm going to make all kinds of cute things with these little bottles!  I promise I will share my projects with you when they are done.  

So lets talk about this Bubble Over Bundle (146082).  This bundle, both stamps and dies, has 17 photopolymer stamps (145868) and 19 dies (145663)!  That's a lot of pieces to work with when you're creating.  Lots of options.  The details are fantastic and the paper that you can get through Sale-A-Bration for FREE is just as adorable as the set itself!  This makes great masculine cards and kids cards and I'm always looking for sets that do double duty.  I believe I'm going to have more fun with this bundle than any other out of the Occassions catalog.  

I love how the new in colors go great with this bundle.  I just ordered the in color markers and will be using them for sure with this set.  

Imagine popping open a crisp cold soda can you hear the sound?  Now think about the bubbles hitting your lips.  Now take that feeling of taking that first gulp and turn it into a card for others to enjoy.  Refreshing, light, happy what great feelings to pass on to someone else!  

I am thrilled to get this set and I hope you order yours today and join me in creating some wonderful projects with the Bubble Over Bundle!  If you need supplies you can go to the Shop Now section of my site on the right hand side of the blog.  There you can order all your Stampin Up products.  Please share pics with me of your wonderful creations, I love to see what you come up with using this set!

This will be our Bundle of the Month and if you order this bundle in the last days of February from me, I will send you 2 complete card kits to make using this bundle as a bonus!  2 adorable projects ready for you to assemble and create with the Bubble Over Bundle! 

Happy Crafting!

Party Pandas Pop Up Box #2 Instructions

Here are the instructions for the Party Pandas Pop Up Box #2 that I posted on my site yesterday.  Some people prefer the written version for instructions so I always try to do a set the day after I post the video.  If you're in need of supplies you can visit the Shop Now section of my website and the Stampin Up catalogs are conveniently on the right hand side of my site for browsing.  Need a demonstrator?  I would be delighted to help and serve as a demonstrator for you!  In the Round Rock area? Please join us for a Stamp Camp hosted in my home once a month.  Not in the Round Rock area, send me a message and I will put together a virtual Facebook class for your enjoyment!  Lots of ways to connect and I'm here to help in any way I can.  Happy Crafting!
