Greetings!

Merry Christmas! This has been a busy month of making gifts and spending time with friends and family. My gifts are either done or will be IOU's for next year. LOL. If you are still looking for some last minute gifts, I can e-mail you Stampin' Up! gift certificates. Also, check out my mini dry erase board that you can make in less than 15 minutes.

 

The last day to place your order for items in the Holiday mini catalog is January 3rd. The Occasions mini catalog starts on January 4th. It is full of new stamps, paper, embellishments and a lot of new Big Shot items. Check out my sneak peek project using MyDigitalStudio downloads from the Occasions mini catalog.

 

From now through January 5th, Stampin' Up! is having a clearance rack blitz with hundreds of items at prices that are 50 to 80% off. You can see all of the sale items in the clearance rack in my online store.   

 

Creatively yours,

Stampin Tip:  Mini Dry Erase Board
Mini Dry Erase Board

 

While making some dry erase boards using large picture frames, I realized that I could make mini dry erase boards too.  

 

I created a jpg using some of my favorite stamp brush sets. The jpg image fits into a 4 x 6 frame and can be reprinted on your home printer.  

 

While I still like traditional stamping, one advantage of digital designing is being able to resize and combine items in ways that you can't do with the real things. In real life, our antique brads are bigger than the flower button and would never fit into an acrylic frame. And I love being able to resize our Stampin' Up! sentiments to fit different projects.   This image can be used for gifts other than Christmas.

 

If you would like me to send you a downloadable file with the image and instructions, please like my  Facebook Business Page. I'll send you the file through Facebook messages.  It's easier to send that size file through Facebook.

My Digital Studio Card

This digital card was made using the Apothecary Art stamp brush set. It's one of my favorite new sets in the Occasions mini catalog.   

 

I can't wait to use the new Framelits dies and my Big Shot to cut out these images. The dies are made to fit many of our new stamp sets and you can also cut a coordinating mat in the same design! Since this card is a digital design, I had to use a square mat. It was lots of fun coloring in the roses digitally.  If you make a mistake, you just click the undo button!    

 

And while I had taken a class this summer on how to make the digitally pleated ribbon, I couldn't remember the steps. Thanks to Cindy Shuster's video on MyDigitalStudio.net, it was easy peasy.

 

I'm booking workshops for Sale-A-Bration which runs from January 24th through March 31st. During Sale-A-Bration, customers earn free product for every $50 that they order. Hostesses have the opportunity to earn all of the regular benefits and extra Sale-A-Bration ones too!
