Happy Halloween

Our improved castle was a hit. It is so much fun to do for the kids (and parents).

This year we repaired it and added ivy and a few other details. Got plans for next years additions.

Stay safe people's!

Yup More single stamps

Yup Stampin' Up! Is smart. They broke up a few of our favorite sets into individual pieces. It's great.

Think about it. If you are stamping wedding invites and want to speed it up, order three of a single stamp. Get done three times as fast. (Example)

Really only like one or two of a set and you are on a budget, buy just those stamps (example).

Order today.

Yup. They Did it. Single Stamps

Stampin' Up! Finally did it. They broke up.

Actually they broke a few if our favorite stamp sets up and they can now be ordered individually. How cool is that.

Which one is at the top of your list?

Tech Tuesday: Bleach 4 card

Here is our sample card we made at our demonstrator only technique Tuesday. This is a monthly meeting where we learn two new techniques and swap cards with previous months techniques.

I store my technique cards and sample swaps in a book, that is why my bow is flattened.

Do I have your interest now? If you would like to learn more about attending this event as a demonstrator, message me today.

Happy crafting, Sandy

Tech Tuesday: Bleach Stamping

Yes you can stamp with bleach! The results will vary depending on the paper used.

To make your stamp pad place layers of a thicker paper towel (I like Bounty) on a plastic, glass or ceramic plate. Pour bleach, the more concentrated bleach works better. Pour enough bleach to soak the towels. Stamp as usual. You will need to replenish bleach if stamping quite a bit. Set aside to dry, no more than 30 minutes. Color will change as it dries. Practice first until you achieve the look you want.

Clean and protect your stamp with Stampin' Mist cleaner from Stampin' Up! (102394). It will moisturize after the harsh bleach.

Thank you for stopping by.

MDS: Favorite Restaurants


This is such a quaint old fashioned and very tasty restaurant. Still smells the same after all these years. This was the first time taking the kids.

Have you scrapped those favorites in your life? I recommend you get out and to it today.  With My Digital Studio it is so easy to create. And now I can print one page for me, and one for my son. Try that with traditional scrapbooking.

So go scrap those faves today. If you send me a .jpeg of it, I will post it on my blog.

Happy scrapping, Sandy

MDS: Love You Mommy

Go, get busy.
