The race is on!

by ktstamps, 1:29 PM
Going back to school is like running a marathon. I get up early 5:15 to work out, be to school by 7:45, teach all day, volleyball practice till 5 PM, come home eat, write practice or get ready for a game, watch one show on TV, and go to bed. OMG! This week has been wonderful, the weather has been warm/hot and I love Seattle in the Fall.

OK, back to Stamping. This week I decided it was time to do a Christmas card. I love this time of the year, leaves falling, Halloween is coming, time to give thanks, and then Christmas which I believe it is all about family. I think I got the idea from Dawn. She is always coming out with great ideas and videos!

Stamp set: Jolliest time of the Year, Wandering Words

Card stock: Whisper white (it is pretty White!) Christmas Cocoa Specialty DSP

Ink: Real Red Craft, Real Red classic, Old Olive, Black Stazon

Accessories: 2 way glue, dazzling diamond glitter, Clear embossing powder, Mistletoe Ribbon Original, Medium Window Sheet

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great Sunday!

The Holiday caddie is here!

by ktstamps, 4:35 PM

This is one of my favorite mini caddies. It is full of ideas and great Holiday stamps! (The designer series paper is AWESOME) I really wanted to buy everything in this caddie! OH MY!

In addition to all the wonderful stamps, SU has joined with Build a Bear. This is a great time to buy the "Big Shot" and create wonderful "paper doll" die cuts. SU even has the Build A Bear Bigz dies for the holidays! Kids will love to dress the bears in different clothing...we as adults will to. (It reminds me of growing up and playing with all my paper dolls! Memories!)

Starting October 1st, My Digital Studio will be available. This is wonderful software to create incredible scrapbooks. If your workshop totals $400.00 or more, you get the $10.00 item from the Holiday Mini AND you can purchase the My Digital Studio for 50% off!!!

BUT, here's a GREAT promotion that started today and runs until the end of November. When you host a workshop and the total of products is over $250, you get to pick one item from the Holiday Mini for $10.00!!! (This does not include the Hostess Sets or My Digital Studio.)

If you haven't had a workshop lately, this caddie is worth it! Please email and say "YES" to host a great holiday workshop!
