Stampin' Up! Punch Book

This handy business tool is now available for purchase. It includes all of the SU punches.


What will my Punch Book include?
Your punch book will have one punch per page* and will include all of the current Stampin' Up! punches. It will have a front and back cover page ready for you to decorate, and an extra page for you to add the new punch that will be available in the upcoming mini catty. I will not label the punch pages as I have in mine. I will leave that for you to do in your own handwriting. I used the white Signo gel pen available from SU to label mine.

* 1/16" circle, spiral, double rectangle, horizontal slot and slit punches will be grouped together because of their small size.

What can I do with a Punch Book?
This punch book will enable you to easily see which punches will work with different stamps and sentiments throughout the catty. Just hold the punched page over the image in the catty to see if you like the look.

It is a sturdy tool so it will travel nicely with you to all your events and workshops.

This would make an excellent incentive item for current downline members or new recruits.

So how much does it cost?
The punch book is $15 plus $3 shipping.

If you would like one, you may contact me or use the Buy Now button to checkout through Paypal.

Here is a picture of mine all decorated:

I Got Carried Away With Pink & Black

I went off to my craft room this morning to get some work done for my upcoming Technique University. After making this card for the event that uses a Stampin' Around Wheel, I just couldn't stop myself from attempting to create a coordinating hot air balloon. What can I say...I got carried away. lol! Anyway, I hope you will leave a comment and let me know what you think. My DH said the proportions are all wrong and that the balloon needs to be larger. I know.. he is all man. Actually, he is right, but if I blew the balloon up more, it would have been a bit more difficult to photograph. So, if you want to recreate this, just put a little more air in the balloon.

I hope you enjoy it!

Supplies Used:
stamps: Razzle Dazzle, Family Phrases, Always in Bloom (wheel)
Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Whisper White
ink: Basic Black, Black Stazon (on the balloon)
Melon Mambo Polka Dot Ribbon, Dimensionals
tools: Stampin' Around Handle, Scallop Edge Punch, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, Small Oval Punch, Stampin' Around Wheel Guide

New Catty Open House Was A Hit!

Oh my! The open house this weekend was so much fun. We all visited, shopped at the rubber rummage, ate, and of course made some cards. I was having so much fun though, that I forgot to take pictures while everyone was here, but I will share the pictures of the cards we created.

Everyone that purchased the new catty at the event received an awesome sheet of coupons that are good until June 2010. I know you hate that you missed out on that, but go ahead and plan to attend next year so won't miss out again.

A few of the specials are still available to my on line friends. They are the 30/30 promotion and the ribbon share. I will list the details of those in separate posts, so make sure to check them out.

Have a wonderful week.

Happy Stamping!
