This new Magnetic Platform will help remove the fuss from your projects. 

This new tool promises to be your new BFF!!

New in the CraftRoom This Week - Backyard Basics!

Backyard Basics struck me as a versatile set that embodied much of what spring and summer is all about for many of us.  

From the bugs and butterflies in the garden as we play with our flowers,  to the chubby robins who for several years running have chosen our back deck and patio area to build their nests a few times a year.  It just screamed out "I have to have this!"

Wood Mount (129255) $30.95
Clear Mount ( 129258) $21.95

The best part, is that as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator I earned this bundle for recruiting a new team member during Sale-a-Bration earlier this year. 

Would you like some information on becoming a Stampin' Up! demonstrator?  Just ask!  

This set is also available as a bundle (as you may have guessed)  that includes both the Stamp set and corresponding Backyard Basics Framelits Dies (129380) $30.95.  

If you're planning on buying both of these, considering splurging on the bundle and save 15% on your purchase by picking them up together.  

Available in Wood Mount (132729) $52.50  or Clear Mount ($44.95) this set is one that you're sure to come back to again and again.

New In the CraftRoom Today! Six-Sided Sampler Bundle!

Look what the big brown truck just brought me?  

Do you love Hexagons?  You're going to love this new Six-Sided Sampler!  With eight different hexagonal images and three sentiments, this versatile set is a must-have for your collection! 

When I first saw the stamp set, it put me in mind of one of my Mother-in-law's quilts, as well as a quilted card that I made at a class with a colleague way back when.. So many possibilities..  

It's almost a shame that I'm off to a workshop tonight so playing with these will have to wait until tomorrow..   so many new toys to love and play with.. 

You can purchase the Six-Sided Sampler all by itself in either clear-mount (130956 - $22.95) or wood-mount (130953  $32.95),  or pair it up with the coordinating Hexagon Punch (130919 - $21.95)   and SAVE 15% by buying them both TOGETHER in a BUNDLE. 

Click on the handy links included in this post to go direct to this item on my Demonstrator website or contact me to add your bundle to your club, customer, or party order! 

Would you like to plan a get-together and get some great ideas to use this new pair? Contact me to book your workshop, or to book some time in my craft-room. 

New Wood Mount Cases ~ Aren't they AWESOME?

If you've been around my crafting table lately, you have no doubt heard me talking about the brand new wood-mount stamp cases that will no replace the plastic cases that once housed our stamp sets.  

These new cases look simlar to our clear-mount boxes and will not only fit perfectly on the shelf right next to them, they also have the images and stamp set name right on the spine to make your search for the right set even easier! 

Stampin' Up! has also provided us with a template for each size to make it easier for those of us who would like to convert all of our stamp sets to these new boxes to create a more uniform look in our storage area.  

  • Blank Half-size Insert
  • Blank Full-size Insert

  • Starting May 31st all wood-mount sets will come in this new packaging. - though as demonstrators would have received a sneak peek with our product pre-orders so many of my regulars will have seen them up close and personal already.  

    A pack of 4 half-sized cases (3 3/4 by 5 1/2")  will sell for $5.95 and a pack of 4 full-size cases (7 1/2" x 5 1/2")  will be $8.95.  

    Get ready for all the exciting new products in the catalog -- especially the new wood

    Just a reminder,  translated sets are now only available in clear-mount.

    Announcing Product Shares - Core'dinations!

    Were you one of our many customers that fell in love with the Core'dinations paper when it first came out?  Did you shed a tear when the Early Espresso and Gumball Green papers went into the abyss of retirement?  I know there were more than a few of you in my Crafting circles that were not too happy.. 
    Well there is some fabulous new for you, with the launch of the new catalog we now have the Core'dinations Card stock available in EVERY color we carry. 
    How FABULOUS is that??

    Monday Challenges ~ Double Shot!

    Well you know sometimes it happens..   I was all gung-ho excited about last week's challenge -  it was *so* easy..  no templates to inspire us to recreate, and no preconstructed idea to follow.   Just the simple request to use our new In-colors and CREATE... 

    Easy, right? 

    Yes, and No!  Sadly sometimes life just gets busy and you don't get to play time..   however this is relatively good news for YOU since now you get a double shot of inspiration today!

    Using these 5 Colors,  Create a Card..    If you feel comfortable sharing, we'd love to see it!  Post a link here in comments, or e-mail it to me at iscrapnstamp@gmail.com.  

    Week 4's INKY Challenge: 

    Here is this weeks creative challenge! Use whatever color scheme you want. And whatever DSP you want.

    2nd Week "INKY Team Challenge" - New Challenge Starts Today..

    I was remiss in posting last Monday's challenge card for our INKREDIBLE CANADIAN STAMPERS 'INKY' Group ~ This time it was a little different,  a card to inspire us rather than a sketch.   

    This card was provided by team-mate Crystal who challenged us to be inspired and create using our retired, retiring or soon to be retired items.  

    I just love getting to share our cards and keep that creative spark burning brightly... 

    My take.. 

    I decided that I was going to continue on my own personal stashbuster challenge and chose some retired DSP and a retired card base from my bits n bytes basket.  The stamp set was the soon-to-be-retired Ronald McDonald House fundraiser stamp "Moving Forward" ~  I opted to forego the scallop, and     when I couldn't decide what to put in a circle I left it out.  
    Though it isn't colors I'd have normally put together,  I really like how this card came together.  Sometimes simple is best ~  I find myself really *liking* this card a lot more than I thought I would..  
    I cannot wait to see what this week's challenge looks like! 

    I will try to post the Challenge card later today, and then will post my take on it later in the week..    Feel free to play along  :) 

    To order supplies for this project, or any other project you may have on the go give me a shout!  iscrapnstamp@gmail.com or 613-655-1010
