Happy 4th Everyone!!!

I was trying to think of the perfect way to reward you taking time away from your friends and family today to visit my blog and so I thought I'd share this fun pop up die made using one of my favorite tools the Big Shot. A few days ago I also posted a mini movie to show you how this fabulous product works.

It's amazing what the Big Shot can do - oops should have made time for a manicure.
People often say "do you have July 4th in England" - I always say "yes - we just don't celebrate it like they do here" - it's fun to see the red faces - LOL. Enjoy a great day!

The Deal of the Week is a brand new concept for Stampin' Up! - The first deal of the week, beginning July 1 at 10:00 AM Mountain time - drum roll, please) ......

Remember - the deal changes each week.

Scallop Edge Punch - Deal Of The Week July 1-5, 2009

By now most of you know how to use the Scallop Edge Punch, but for those of you just discovering it, here is a little sample of how it works.
  • Practice on scrap paper first before you start punching scallop edge.
Step 1

Step 2

  • Center your strip of card on the punch, so that an even amount of card is on both ends and punch the center scallop.
    Step 3

  • Next slide the card along – when the punched scallops come out at the end, line them up with those printed on the top of the bunch base – this will help not to over punch already punched scallops. Repeat at the other end or until desired length scallop is achieved.

Step 4

Step 5

Step 6

Step 7

Step 8

I hope this helps a little. It's not the easiest thing in the world to explain, it's way easier to actually have a go, but hopefully the pictures have helped a little.

Every time my ladies use this punch, it gets a WOW!

Last Chance!!!!!!

Remember TODAY is the last day to go on line to and order any retiring stamp sets and accessories - tomorrow they'll be gone FOREVER!!!!!

Images © 1990-2009 Stampin' Up!
Here are the details of my Ribbon Share.
I won't be able to sell the fabulous new in color ribbon until the 1st week of July, but I can add your name to my waiting list, so please email me at
On June 24th, I will be able to accept your payment by check or cash - please email me if you need to use PayPal.
Fellow Demonstrators - you are welcome to join my ribbon share too!

You will receive 3 yards of all 6 colors for $15 including tax and shipping.

To Pre-order my In Color Polka Dot Ribbon Share please send me an email and let me know how many shares you would like - each 18 yard share contains all six colors.
By the way, did I tell you that there are polka dots on one side only and so it's like getting two ribbons in one?
Remember - Stampin' Up! prohibits me from selling items cash and carry and so each time five shares are complete, I'll place the share order. Your $15.00 payment for one share holds your spot in the share.


Did you know that by removing the outer casing of the rhinestone brads you can create "bling" of your very own? - Add that to some glitter and fabulous satin ribbon and what a "wow".
