And the winner is......

Laurie Nasca!  Laurie won $25 worth of free Stampin' Up! product by playing along with the Mystery Hostess game.  Way to go Laurie!  I've placed the order and her fun new toys will be here in about a week.

I tried to do some stampin' yesterday, but the mojo just wasn't working!  I'll try again tomorrow....need to open up the new framelits and matching snowflakes.  Might be time to create an ornament or two.

Make sure you click on the Events tab up above to find out what classes you'd like to sign up for this fall.

I'm also considering holding Technique classes on the fourth Monday of the month from 6:30 pm. to 8:30 pm.  Cost would be $10 or FREE if you placed an order in class.  The first one will be the Dryer Sheet class because Peggy has been begging......I'm thinking September 23rd to start the class - anyone interested?  I'm limited to 8 seats, so you have to pre-register and pre-pay to hold your spot.  Every month I'll let you know what you'll be learning so there isn't any obligation....come if you want to learn that new technique!

More toys...




Here are some gift card holders using the Pop 'n Cuts die.  The woman who designed this die for Stampin' Up!, Karen Burniston, gave a demonstration at Convention.  She suggested using the adhesive shelf liner so you can see if you paper is in the right place on the die.  I figured if it was good enough for her, it was good enough for me!  LOL!  The two pictures above show the die base only, and it makes a cute, easy gift card holder.  Now, scroll down....




These pictures show the fancy gift card holders using the insert, Label Pop 'n Cuts.  I forgot to put the insert in the die base for the picture, but it is magnetic and you can't really screw it up.  This one takes a few more steps, but you have all sorts of options.

These are samples of the gift card holders we'll make in the class.  Go to my blog, www.DownstairsStudio.blogspot.com and click on the tab at the top labeled Events and Classes for the schedule and payment due dates.  Also, don't forget the Hostess Code expires tomorrow night!

Ooohh, new toys!

I finally had some time last weekend to play with some new things.  One of them was the new die from the Holiday Catalog - Gift Bow Bigz L Die (p. 37, $32.95, item #129977).  I'll be using this die in the Tags class and we'll make a bow.  SO EASY!  Oh my word...I'll be making bows for everything!


I put adhesive shelf liner on the die and ran it through the Big Shot, then peeled off the cut pieces.  I did this so I could use scraps of paper but could see if they were large enough to cover the area that needed to be cut.  Works like a charm!  These bows really are very simple - consider purchasing the die to make your holiday wrapping so faster (and cheaper!).  And it will make all your gifts, no matter the season, look so smart!
