What I've been up to...


Actually, I'll tell you what I've been doing.....

I have all five cards set for Monday's and Wednesday's class. I'm pretty excited about them because I love the colors of Fall--all from the Earth Element's color family for those who live by the Stampin Up color chart like me.

In fact, here is a little teaser for those who are already signed up for class: you'll have to wait till class time to see the full card.

We'll be using stamp sets that are actually not released for the general population! How exciting is that??

I was so excited to get those boxes from Stampin Up. They arrived on Friday afternoon and contained the Big Shot (Stampin Up's die cutting/embossing machine) and a couple of dies. There were also some stamp sets, Designer Paper and ribbon. But those were incidentals compared to the Big Shot. The first thing I wanted to know is if the Big Shot could run the embossing folders, nestabilities, and the other dies I already had from when I used my Cuttle Bug ( I say that like it was a long time ago that I used to use my CuttleBug but it was only hours..ha ha). And they all run beautifully through the Big Shot. I'll be posting soon with pix for people who might not know what I'm yapping about. In the mean time, check out this if you want to see an image and read some info.
When you receive your Big Shot, the handle is taped on to the underside of the Styrofoam packing material. Don't miss it! It needs to be put on. Here is my handyman, The Accountant (hubby for those new to this site) putting the handle on. It wasn't hard to do except when you are jumping around the kitchen so excited that you can't quite line up the handle with the hole it is supposed to go into. Then, you might need your own handyman.

Where can I get a hunky handyman like that?
