Sizzix Big Shot Video

I found this video on you tube, demonstrating the big shot cutting the Bigz dies. Stampin Up has several exclusive dies that you can't find anywhere else. With the new catalog coming out this summer, one can only guess that some of these babies might be retiring. Hurry and order yours now, before they are gone. If you place a $50.00 order between now and the end of May, I will throw in an advanced copy of the new catalog ($10.00 value) To purchase any of these exclusive dies and get a free catalog, click here

A Fun Flower made of scraps

Fellow Blogger Andrea W, created these fabulous flowers using her paper scraps, aren't they great, What a great way to use up all of our SU paper scraps before the new Catty comes out!

Cut nine squares of different sizes.

Spray each with a little water and crinkle up. Allow to dry.

Layers each one on top of one another, making sure to stagger.
Stick a push pin though your button centre and...

tie on button.

More Sneak Peaks!!


The June issue of Creating Keepsakes features a die-cut favor box made with the new Stampin' Up! Fancy Favor Bigz XL die from the upcoming 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalog.

NOTE: This product is not yet available. However, I thought you might enjoy an advance sneak peek. This amazing product along with many more new Stampin' Up! products will be available for purchase on July 1, 2009, when the new Idea Book & Catalog is released.

In Color Rumors: Out of control!!!!

As most of you know, the new Stampin' Up Catalog is due to be released next week (june 1) and we are all chomping at the bit to get our inky fingers on them!

Lots of speculation out there, But some of the rumors I have pieced together for you: see photo to the left for a possible sneak peak at some of the new in colors and Designer series paper. These are the names of some of the fabulous new colors (No guarantee, just what I am hearing on the message boards, these could be DSP or In Colors)

Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango, Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo and Razzleberry Lemonade

With all the buzz and speculation over the new catalog, least we not forget, this means the new "Last Chance" List will be out on the same day, the current In Colors, many of your favorite Designer papers and current stamps will be retiring. Hurry and get the ones you want before they are gone! You can order them now, before they are gone, place a $50.00 order and I will throw in the new catalog for free! Visit my SU website now

Happy Stamping!!
