{I’m Stampin’ Up; I Want the World to Know}

24 Feb

 

Got to let it show.  A little Diana Ross, anyone?  Every time I hear this song (albeit with “Comin’ out instead of Stampin’ Up; come on, Diana Ross wasn’t a scrapbooker), I think of that Levi’s commercial with all the singing belly buttons.  Yep, that’s what I think about in my spare time…

But, nope, I’m not coming out…or showing my singing belly button.  I’m enjoying some wonderful new Stampin’ Up products.  I had a Stampin’ Up party this month.  Because I was the hostess (with the mostess), and because of their wonderful Sale-a-bration special, I scored some great FREE products.  Pyramid scheme (ouch, I said it!), or not, I feel that I got a pretty fantastic deal.

For the run-down:

Picture This (free hostess gift)

Good Neighbors (free Sale-a-bration)

Fox and Friends ($14.95)

Stampin’ Spots-Earth Elements (free hostess gift) 

Stampin’ Spots-Soft Subtles ($22.50)

Ink Pad (free hostess gift)

Stampin’ Write Marker ($2.95)

 

Sizzix Die (free hostess gift)

8 1/2” x11” Paper-Soft Subtles ($7.95)

Brads ($2.95)

 

Best of all?  A couple of orders came from people who have never scrapped before!  Yay, for sparking creativity. 

One downside?  Their so called “clear mount stamps.”  Yes, they go on a clear block.  No, they are not clear.  It’s a rubber stamp, with a clear window cling-y type sticker on top, that sticks (somewhat) to a clear mount block.  I was pretty disappointed, until I used it.  Their stamps and ink go on so well, that I didn’t have to worry about uneven coverage on the stamp.  And because they’ve switched over to the stamps coming perforated to punch out, instead of having to cut them out (used to HATE that), the mount on the clear block does allow for accurate placement.  I will buy them again, so I suppose it’s not that bad.

Too bad I’ve already thought of some more things that I want…party in March anyone?!
