Good morning ladies,
We have a Color Renovation coming. I'm so stinken excited!!! There will only be FIVE new colors (just like the NEW In Colors every year) but they rearranged some colors into different groups and are retiring some of the colors. They've even renamed my favorite color – KRAFT is now called CRUMB CAKE!!!
There is still a Bold Bright Collection, a Neutrals Collection, a Regals Collection and a Subtles Collection. Some of them are just getting rearranged into different collections. I love all of them and the collections make more sense to me. I'm sooooooo stinken excited. I can't wait. As demonstrators we can pre-order them, I just can't wait!!! I wish I had them today. I'm hoping they will show us more on the Cruise!!!! YES THE CRUISE IS COMING UP! Maybe they will be one of our bed gifts! Ewwwwwww I can't wait.
Okay so how does it breakdown? Here it is…
Crumb Cake (I LOVE THAT NAME) aka Kraft

CLEAR MOUNTED STAMPS
So what is your take on our new Clear Mount Stamps? Stampin' Up! has given you a choice. The choice is Wood Mount or Clear Mount. My new favorites are the clear mount. I have a lot of unmounted stamps (I get so many free ones from Stampin' Up!) I don't always have time to mount them which has turned out to be a great thing. I'm going to show you how to take your unmounted WOOD MOUNT stamps and turn them into CLEAR MOUNT stamps. It's so much fun and so fast.
okay so the first thing you want to do is pop out your rubber image and remove the sticker from the sticker sheet.
Next you will put the sticky side up on the sticker and the foam down. Line up the image and lay your stamp on the sticker sheet.
Turn over your piece and trim the clear sticker off. (Trim around it like you used to do when we had to cut stamps out)!
Do this to all your pieces before you go to the next step.
Next you are going to need your Tombow "Green Glue". Optionally you can use a foam brush but don't absolutely need it. See the next picture for details.
Next you are going to spread the glue evenly over the entire stamp. After you've done that for all the pieces, set them aside for at least 24 hours. After that, the glue will be sticky but will not stick permanently! It works perfect….and that's my tip for today!
Now on to more pictures from Stamp Camp
Here's our welcoming committee!!! Hi Sue and Marlene!
Here are two more FREE doorprizes! Aren't they just beautiful!!! What an awesome job the girls did…remember every stamp camp atendee got to take home a doorprize!
And last show and tell for today is this beautiful card made by Pat Dover. She attended one of my classes on flowers and she adapted it to this birthday card for her friend Linda. She used the round punch and STICKY PAGES!!!! It's a cool technique.
Enjoy your day ladies, I'm not sure where you are in the country today but on the 7th of April, 2010, it's going to 80 degrees here in NEW YORK in APRIL! How cool is that (I mean how HOT is that)! Enjoy.
