Do you know Stampin’ Up! sells magic? It’s true! Every time I show heat embossing it’s like I’ve performed a magic trick for an audience. I get oohs and ahhs every time..even when I’m alone! When the plain and gritty embossing powder turns shiny and elegant, it is always a magic moment. People are amazed that they can create such an elegant and professional looking result. It’s as easy as 1-2-3!

1. Stamp your image with Craft ink or VersaMark ink.

2. Cover generously with the Stampin’ Emboss powder of your choice and tap off excess.

3. Heat with Stampin’ Up!’s high-quality Heat Tool until melted and experience the magic!

Simply Scored Scoring Tool (#122334)

I love using paper to make 3-D projects! Now, you might be thinking that is a little over the top, that 3-D projects take too much time. Well, I’ve got the solution for you! The Simply Scored Scoring Tool makes creating 3-D projects faster and easier than ever! It fits 12” x 12” paper, has full rulers across the top and down the left side that are marked at every 1/8”. Plus there is a centering ruler along the top edge. The unique design includes holes for place markers at every 1/8” interval. The markers are great for saving time when scoring multiple projects and for making 3-D projects, like boxes. Storage compartments and a place for the included ergonomically designed stylus are great bonus features. The stylus has two tip sizes so you can choose which you prefer. The refined steel tip gets even smoother with use instead of wearing out like plastic tools do. With its sturdy yet lightweight design it doesn’t bow or slip around when you are scoring. You need to get your hands on this amazing tool so you can see for yourself how fun creating 3-D projects can be!

Tip: Sticky Strip is a must since you’ll make more boxes and 3-D projects now that scoring is so simple!

fresh brewed coffee!

As a child I can remember the local A&P store grinding the 8 o'clock coffee and the smells that could be enjoyed as we drove through town and by the store was fantastic! Today I discovered a local coffee roasting company who brings in green beans and roasts them to order . Here is a picture of a 5 lb bag of coffee that was roasted only 24 hours ago. I am so excited about my cup of coffee in the morning!!!

I am looking for some people who are interested in splitting the roasted coffee. We have to order 25 lbs or more at a time and would like to share with whomever is interested. Want to do some research about the roasting company go to Sandra Grimes, Creative Consultant Stamping' Up! independent Demonstrator

The beauty of a Sunflower

When I came to work this morning I was greeted by a beautiful sunflower. A bird dropped the seed back several weeks ago and I have been amazed that even through the coldest January weather, this sunflower has survived.. Even though it's leaves were burnt by the cold, the plant was determined to survive. Now I get to enjoy it's beauty.

Spring! Can't Wait!!

Here in Florida the weather has been in the 70's and the outside has been calling me. Isn't it funny how your body and mind crave spring. Spring is like a new beginning. I wanted to share my excitement and show you that I have gotten started on my spring garden. I will give you an undate in 10 days after my seeds have emerged.
