If you took advantage of the Stampin’ Up! stamp set sale last Monday, you may have a lot of clear-mount sets to ‘assemble’. I love the uniform size and easy storage of clear-mount stamps in their dvd-style cases. Clear-mount stamps offer greater stamping visability without giving up rubber stamp quality! And Stampin’ Up!’s acrylic blocks are wonderful to use. They have ‘handles’ on the sides similar to the wood blocks for comfort stamping. And you can add more than one stamp to a block to customize your stamping as I did on this collage card.
When you recieve the clear-mount stamp sets, you’ll receive a rubber sheet with the precut stamps and an optional label sheet. You can attach the rubber stamps directly to your acrylic block and start stamping. Or you can place the specially-formulated label stickers which allows you to see the image orientation as you stamp.
I love being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator! And here’s another reason why: preorders! The new Paper Trimmer is here and available to SU demonstrators as a preorder. Look for the paper trimmer to be available to all in November. Watch the video below to see all the new great features!
Here’s the announcement and the video:
The time has come! The voyage is complete and the Stampin’ Trimmer is ready to order! We know you’re excited–we are too! From now until October 31, you have the opportunity to get the trimmer during a demonstrator-only preorder… the Stampin’ Trimmer is coming in November.

Yesterday I showed you this birthday card I made with the Embellished Events stamp set. You can see that post here. I love all the color and in the video below I’ll show you how I color the stamp to get this effect. Plus I’ll show you how I use the paper-piercing tool to place the adhesive-backed pearls. Also, I’ll show you how I add glitter to the flames.
You will love the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. It’s easy to apply anywhere and adds great sparkle to any project. As you notice in the video, I like to store the glitter in a old Tupperware container, which makes application even that much easier! Follow me on facebook for more ideas.

Creating is fun AND messy! Admit it! We all make a mess when we get busy with our stamps and paper and ink and glitter, etc. All that stuff everywhere, but it’s manageable if we have a place to put everything away when we’re done.
Recently, while I was stamping with my sister I made a brief video of her craft closet/room. I think you’ll enjoy this short tour and maybe it will give you some ideas on how to store and organize your own craft and stamping supplies and life will be sweet!
The tag was created with the Stampin’ Rewards Mixed Medley Stamp Set. ‘For you’ was stamped in Rich Razzleberry and the spider web stamped in Black StazOn Ink. I punched these out quickly with Circle punches. And the tag were layered on a circle Rich Razzleberry cardstock.
