1.   New Arrival: Stampin' Up! Trimmer Rotary Additions & Video

You may have noticed a new product in the 2013/2014 Stampin' Up! Annual CatalogStampin' Trimmer Rotary Additions.  If you read the "fine print", it said it would be available in August.  Well August is here and it's now available – woohoo!!


I have mine on order and I can't wait to get it.  In the meantime, I watched the video below created by Stampin' Up! and now I'm ready to put it into action when it arrives.  I highly recommend watching the tips on how to use the new Rotary Additions, plus a quick review on the Stampin' Trimmer itself (which is now my favorite trimmer of all-time – and I'm not just saying that because I'm a demonstrator…I truly love this product!)

Single Stamps: Assortment 5 — Holiday


Simply Stars is one of my favorite new stamp sets. The new Christmas Star single stamp is quickly climbing the ranks. I’m a fan of big images, and this one is definitely big.

I love stars because they are very versatile. It isn’t an overtly feminine or masculine shape and can be used year-round for all kinds of projects.

This framed décor project is a fun collection of different textures and patterns. Because the star stamp is so large, it easily becomes a popped-up 3D star by scoring and folding. I also used the Chevron Border Punch, the Expressions Thinlits Dies, and a canvas banner piece from the Banner Simply Created Kit in the holiday catalog.

The Mini Muslin Bag project was a lot of fun to do, too. To get a perfectly crisp image, I heat embossed the star with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder onto parchment paper, then ironed it onto the muslin bag. It does take the shine off of the embossing powder, but it guarantees a perfect image and perfect placement every time.

This bag would be a perfect holiday gift. I made a bundle of five note card-sized greeting cards and paired them with the new Crumb Cake Note Card envelopes. These cards are very simple—just the Christmas Star stamped in Sahara Sand ink and the Season’s Greetings sentiment from the Joy to The World Stamp Set embossed in gold. I finished it off with a quick Linen Thread bow.
