Product Video: Have you tried our Designer Rosette?

When I first saw a rosette on a card, I thought it was adorable, and I decided I wanted to learn to make them.  Things had been pretty hectic though, and I found myself mentally adding it to that never ending list of someday.. 

Then our Occasions Mini came along and I swear that someone at the Stampin' Up! office is peeking in my windows because along came the Designer Rosette Bigz XL Die - 125594 ($52.95) -  talk about a time saver!!   

This is one of the most recent additions to my craft room, and one that I am sure will be getting a lot of use.  I'm envisioning flowers, and lollipops in bright colors, and I have to admit it's at least a little reminiscent of the days of origami and snow flake cutting.  We were paper crafters even way back then.. 

The rosette is among the items in the soon to be retiring Occasions Mini.  I hope that this will make it into the new catalog, but we're never sure until it's in our hands.  If this is a must have on your list..  don't think about it too long or it may be too late. 

If you would like to add this awesome tool that creates Rosettes up to 10" in diameter to your collection, you can order drectly from my website or contact me and we'll place your order together.  

Hope you enjoyed the video ~ Compliments of the friendly folks at the Stampin' Up! home office.  :) 

Happy ScrapNStampin' !  


So Long SAB ~ and Happy Anniversary to Me...a SALE!

Can you believe that we're already at the end of March?  It was here and gone almost in an instant..  

If you haven't gotten your Sale-a-Bration freebies yet, don't despair, you still have a little bit of time to make that happen -- but don't wait too long!!

Sale-a-Bration comes to an end March 31st and then we'll have to wait until the new catalog release to see which of our favorites made the cut and will join us in the new catalog.  If there's a set that you love,  do you really want to take the chance that it won't make the cut?  Get yours before they're gone!!

Were you reading my Facebook page yesterday?  If you were, then you may have noticed that there's a very special anniversary happening this weekend, tomorrow in fact ~ March 30th is the 2 year anniversary of the date that I re-joined Stampin' Up.  

It actually sounds funny to me to say it's been 2 years like that's a long time,  when really I've been at this hobby for what seems like almost forever..  then again,  I was an active Stamper's Club member for 3 years before I bought my first kit, and at that time I only shared it with a few friends and family members in my Crafting circle. I don't think I even promoted myself as a demonstrator all that much.  

In 2008, I'd found myself in hospital for 11 months straight ~ after complications and a stay in ICU,  I now had nerve damage down my whole left side.  I spent many months completely bed-ridden, and struggled daily because everything I could think of to do required the use of BOTH hands.  

Even once I was finally standing and taking a few steps, it was a long time before I could do stairs, and though I'd put my demo status on hold, it lapsed during my convalescence and to be honest there were bigger things on my plate to be concerned with. 

So anyhow.. fast forward to Sale-a-Bration 2010, and I'm walking, and getting back to living life ~ it was time. My hunny treated me with a brand new "I want it all kit" and with that, I re-joined.  it was also then that I decided to shift from being a hobby demonstrator to hosting workshops and classes. Most of my Crafty Crew lives more than an hour away now, it was time to form a new core group..  and so it began again... 

So..  with that in mind, I hope you'll help me celebrate my 2nd Anniversary of getting back into my life and love of crafting.  Dig out your toys and play :)
