I think my current favorite product is Stampin’ Up!’s Adhesive Remover – it saved my Color Coach. I am not the neatest person, especially when I craft, and sometimes I leave things on my desk that I shouldn’t. Like a sheet of Stampin’ Dimensionals that have lost their protective paper coating, so the adhesive on top is exposed. And then I may accidentally set down my Color Coach on top of the Dimensionals and then not notice for, say, a week or two.
When I did finally realize what I’d done, this is what I discovered:
I was able to pull the foam off the Color Coach card, but an icky trail of adhesive goo was left. Yuck!
I remembered my Adhesive Remover and pulled it out to see if I’d be able to remove at least a portion of the goo. In less than a minute, I was able to remove ALL traces of the Stampin’ Dimensionals from my Color Coach card. Hooray! Now the only evidence of my mistake are the pictures in this blog post and me confessing to it!
I’m so glad I had the adhesive remover in my stamping arsenal. Want one of your own? I’ll send a brand new Adhesive Remover to the first three people who place an order from my online store between now and the end of the month! (note: orders consisting only of free MDS downloads are not eligible for this offer)
I store all my 8.5 x 11 paper in a file cabinet. I love the ease of being able to toss scraps and full sheets together into one labeled file folder – it keeps everything in one place and makes it much easier for me to find what I’m looking for.
A few years ago I made folder labels for my files and I finally found that original document tonight so I updated it with the current color families and both sets of In-Colors. I’ve saved the file as a PDF, so feel free to print it out yourself. These labels are sized to print onto adhesive address labels that measure 1 x 2-5/8″ and come 30 to a sheet (Avery 5160/8160 or other similar styles). Print them off, pop them onto file folders, and you are on your way to organized bliss.
The magnetic Big Shot platform is the very first thing that I ordered from the new catalog yesterday and I can’t wait for it to get here! I love the framelits, but sometimes it is so difficult to get them arranged correctly and I was going through packs of post-it notes trying to keep my stamped images and framelits aligned. The magnetic platform is going to make my life so much easier!
Check out this video from Stampin’ Up! to see the platform in action.
Don’t forget, I’m offering FREE goodies for orders placed with me over the weekend. Check out this post for details!
Today’s an exciting day – the launch of the new 2013-2014 Stampin’ Up! catalog. I can’t wait to get my hands on the new magnetic Big Shot platform and a bunch of the stamp sets with coordinating framelits! I am so excited about the new storage boxes for the wood block stamp sets – I may even start going back to wood block stamping again!
Through the weekend, you can order from any of the 2012-2013 or 2013-2014 annual catalogs (see all five of them in the sidebar to the left <---------- ) [Note: Spring Catalog merchandise is only available through May 31] Stock up on the retiring products you have to have plus get all your new favorites. Might I suggest some of the delicious 2013-2015 In Colors? They remind me of ice cream – Yum!

Here’s a selection of some of my favorite projects from this year. You can click each image to view it in a larger size. You can also click on the titles of each item to visit the original blog post and learn more about how it was made.
My son is obsessed with the Angry Bird game, so, of course, we had to have an Angry Bird themed party this year. I made punch art invitations for the front of the invitation, but used My Digital Studio to create the inside with all the information. This worked out to my advantage because my son woke up sick on the day of his party and we had to postpone it. Since I’d used MDS to create the page with all the party details on it, I was able to just fire up my computer, add the word “rescheduled”, changed the date and time, and print out another round of invites in a matter of minutes.
Stampin’ Up!’s biggest sale of the year, Sale-a-Bration is ending this week. I decided today that there was just enough time this week to squeeze in one last hurrah, so I’m having a “goodbye Sale-A-Bration” open house on Friday night from 6-9PM. If you live in the Austin area, I hope you’ll stop by to make a few FREE projects and enjoy some Pinterest-inspired goodies. I’ll have all my cards, gifts and scrapbook items from the past few months out for display so be sure to bring your cameras!
I’ll have prizes for people who have never come to one of my stamping events, who bring a friend, and I’ll even have hostess-benefits drawings for those who choose to place an order this week. If you want to order online and have the items shipped directly to you, you can use hostess code ZW4S94RN during the online checkout process to be entered into the drawings.
Hope to see you on Friday!
