Hi Stampers, Today we will be making this card . This card is from my friend Peggy Waite who designed this card for her shoe box swap at our last club meeting. I fell in love with it so much so that I decided to make them for my Glitter Queens who reached certain goals for January.

Hi Stampers, Today's video we will be talking about all kinds of Adhesives Stampin'Up! sells . I will show you how they work and how I use them . Plus remember these adhesives are not only limited to using them as adhesives but also you may find them useful for other techniques and other fun ways to use. You may notice I do not talk much about the Crystal Effects which is also considered an adhesive. Don't worry we will be using that product in tomorrow's video . 2 products that are not adhesive are also listed on the Adhesive page in the Annual catalog on page are a must have in my opinion those are the Silicone Craft Mat and Adhesive Remover . Both will be highlighted in today's video as well as the following adhesives . Snail Adhesive #104332 Snail Refill #104331 Fast Fuse Adhesive #129026 Fast Fuse... Continue reading

Hi Stampers, Happy Sunday Friends! This past week I have been under the weather with a head cold or something yucky . I rarely get sick so I am not sure what's going on, I just wish it would go away . I am thankful I got my videos made for this upcoming week .

I love the Going Global stamp set (w)# 140745 (c)#140748 I love how there are different greeting in this set unlike my other favorite masculine sets found on pages 82-84 in the annual catalog . I really love the compass and wanted to make that my focal point on my card. I was also thinking old world map when stamping the Tip Top Taupe card stock #138336 layer ... so I crumbled the card stock and then sponged on the crease lines with Early Espresso classic ink#126974. All layers when sponged with the Early Espresso and a Stamping Sponge # 141337 and I also distressed the edges... Continue reading

Hi Stampers, Happy Monday friends ! Remember the (2) gift tags I shared with you last Monday . The cute tags go with these goodies. Aren't just the cutest ? The goodies inside was just a little something to congratulate a couple of my glitter queens on their resent promotion to Silver and Silver Elite . ( Notice the Silver Glitter inside, as well as the Silver accents on the tag ?) I really hope they had as much fun opening them as I did putting them together . PLUS remember when I mentioned I was cleaning out my Project Life cabinet and I was throwing away the card board boxes the PL cards use to come in, and well the goodies fit inside the boxes perfectly . It's just one of those things that was meant to be I suppose . FYI: I update all my videos links HERE... Continue reading
