Hit me with the BIG SHOT!

Congratulations to Amy Jasper, Desirée Spenst, Tamara Casorso, Jill Buehler, and Amanda Turner of Kelowna, BC for winning first place in the Stampin' Up! new ad campaign for this awesome short video paying tribute to the Stampin' Up! Big Shot.  Canadian demonstrators rock!
I have to share that I just LOVE my Big Shot die cutter, item 113439 found on Page 184 of the current catty, it is by far the best die cutting system I have ever owned.

The Big Shot is capable of cutting all kinds of paper, fabric, felt, foam, roofing tin and so much more as well as embossing wonderful patterns into paper, foam, tin, etc.  It is the most versatile piece of creative art equipment I have and I use it in many aspects of my life from creating learning materials for my daycare crew to wonderful works of art as part of my paper crafting explorations.

If you are unfamiliar to the Big Shot a quick Google search of "Big Shot projects" will show you a vast array of options you can create with this product from gorgeous quilts to breath taking scrapbook layouts~  it is a must have for every creative soul, school teacher and designer!

For the month of August in honor of my birthday month and my love for the Big Shot I am offering a FREE Stampin' Up! embossing folder valued up to $10.95 to every customer who purchases the Big Shot Die Cutting machine through me!

Happy Stampin'

Sneak Peek ~ new Stampin' Up! products

How exciting is this, fresh from Stampin' Up! Convention, we will soon be able to quickly and easily make our own coordinating envelopes for our cards using a Stampin' Up! punch board .... as someone who just cries a bit inside at the site of a 'naked envelope' I just LOVE the idea of making matching envelopes so I am so excited about the amount of time this new product is going to save me!

I am loving the new line of DIES from Stampin' Up! each new release just makes my creative juices flow with all the wonderful ways they can be used to make my paper crafting easier yet more stunning! Just look at the THINLITS card dies and imagine the possibilities ... these are new and available NOW and just look at the cool options that can be made with them ... what great new way to quickly create fancy folds and hinged cards we love without all the measuring and well if you are like me 'folding wrong' and getting a backward hinge!

If you are not too overwhelmed with the new products well you better sit down for this one ... watch the Undefind video below for this has got to be one of the COOLEST new products they have announced so far .... create your OWN custom rubber stamps with the Undefined kit and the ideas that are following through my head already with the possibilities of this are just well blowing my mind!

With all these new products coming out now is the perfect time to be booking a Stampin' Up! workshop with me and earn some of your wishlist for free ... and if that is not incentive enough for an added bonus, as part of my Run for the Cure fundraising, all workshops booked between now and October the hostess gets an additional 'hostess' gift from me PLUS you and your friends will be shopping for a great cause while stocking up on your creative supplies because 10% off all my sales between now and October's run will be going toward my fundraising for the Run for the Cure!
