Haitian Relief UpdateFebruary 5, 2010

When the Haitian Relief promotion came out, I almost didn't post details, because I figured everyone would want to help in their own way, but I decided that if just one person saw my post and chose this stamp set over another one, then someone in need would benefit.
I'm so thrilled that through our love of creativity together around the world this effort has raised a significant amount of money - Thank You to each and every one of you who has supported this effort!

Stampin′ Up! demonstrators are working hard to make a difference in the lives of those who continue to be affected by the January 12 earthquake in Haiti.

In just fifteen days, demonstrators around the world have already sold 7524 of the stamp sets. From each of these sets, Stampin′ Up! will donate $2 to the Red Cross’ Haiti Relief and Development Fund.

This offer lasts until February 28, 2010, so you still have time to lend a helping hand to those who are so much in need. Learn more and make a difference!

Workshop Fun

When my good friend Terri asked me to do a workshop for her, I decided to make a scrapbook page part of my demonstration.

Terri is a huge scrapbooker and it gave me the greatest pleasure to hand this completed page to her (one of the benefits of being a hostess with me).

Of course at a workshop it would be too time consuming for everyone to make scrapbook pages and so we made the coordinating card.

When I designed this page for Terri, I was thinking of her beautiful daughter who was little more than a wonderful toddler when we met and is now blossoming into a beautiful High Schooler. I imagined Terri using black and white pictures to show how her daughter has changed (black and white because she wouldn't have to try and coordinate clothes from times ten years apart) Black and white pictures will really pop with these colors .....

Yikes, I couldn't believe it, last week Terri called me to say that they are moving to the other side of the country, I'm thrilled for their new adventure but so sad that they won't be close by.
I guess the title of this page was just about perfect!

Things that really made this page work well for me were the fact that we now have a butterfly punch, so I didn't need to cut out all the butterflies. I love how the polka dot ribbon mimics the polka dots on the little butterflies. The saying in this stamp set is more poignant than I could have imagined and I love that I could use my Autumn days stamp set on a page that reminds me of Spring.

Important Big Shot Die Information!


At the weekend I was using my Stampin' Up! Beautiful Wings Embolsslits Die and I notice that the hinge was beginning to deteriorate.

Now, anyone who knows me, also knows that I absolutely love this die and I don't know what I'd do without it and so today I called Demonstrator Support and they will be replacing my die. Soooo, here's the important part in all of this......

My die would have been fine if I had only used it differently. Apparently, when you run the die through your big shot hinge first, it puts too much pressure on the hinge and so you need to turn it through ninety degrees so that the hinge is not parallel to the opening you pass the die through and so that the hinge is on the opposite side of the big shot to the Big Shot handle.
