On Stage Event Preview

We had a great time at the OnStage Event last Saturday!! What is an Onstage Event?

Lots of great business tips, make-n-takes and the best part of all...........we received the new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs!!!! YIPPEE

I think these are two of the best cattys that Stampin'UP has ever put out! I especially LOVE all of the FREE stuff you can get this year in that little Sale-A-Bration catalog! They are FANTASTIC!!!

For those of you who have purchased from me in the last few months, your cattys will automatically be delivered to you in mid December. I will be having an OPEN HOUSE for everyone to come and get their own catalogs on Saturday, January 14th! See HERE for more details.
Here are a few pictures of some of the projects we made on Saturday- Enjoy!

Stitched From The Heart

STARTING TODAY you can purchase the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies ahead of their official release in the 2017-2018 annual catalog.  I love the sweet edging the dies create and classic shapes that coordinate with Stampin’ Up! Layering Squares, Circles and Ovals Dies.

Check out the “stitching” the dies create on the “for you” layer!

HOW DID THEY DO THAT?  I have been asked how Stampin’ Up! created the rectangle from a square “stitched” die in the sample above.  Here’s the 411 as well as photo tips here:

Line up the framelit on your paper so one end of the framelit and the paper are off the platform. You only want to cut three sides of the square. Run it through the Big Shot.

Rotate your paper and carefully line up the framelit with the cuts of the first run.  Make sure that one end of the framelit and paper are off the platform, so it doesn’t cut a line down the middle of your rectangle. Then run it through the Big Shot.

Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies coordinate with the Stampin’ Up! Layering Circles, Squares and Ovals Dies!  Here are the approximate sizes of the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies:

Circles:  1-3/8″, 1-7/8″, 2-3/8″, 2-7/8″

Squares:  1-3/16″, 1-5/8″, 2-1/8″, 2-5/8″

Ovals:  1-3/4″ x 1-3/16″, 2-1/4″ x 1-5/16″, 2-3/4″ x 1-13/16″, 3-1/4″ x 2-5/16″.

AND NOVEMBER GETS EVEN BETTER!  Starting today, Stampin’ Up! is offering 25% off select stamp sets that coordinate beautifully with the dies.

25% Off Select Stamp Sets Nov. 1 – 30 ONLY! Click Here for More Details! :) Linda
