What a busy week! I had so much fun yesterday teaching coloring techniques using Stampin' Blends. They are such an easy medium to use. I am so, so glad that Stampin' Up! came out with their own alcohol markers! This means that the Copic classes I took so many years ago are put to good use in my Blends coloring classes.

At the end of last week's final comparison video I promised to use...

It isn't often that I create projects, film a walkthrough and upon final review, decide the cards just aren't where I want them to be. Today's video is exactly that. I have tips on staying organized as well as review the product changes coming on 5/4 with the new annual catalog.

I will also be plotting my pre-go live order so I can start sharing new stuff early in April. And finally, I can begin work on the publich searchable ...

This video walks through the third project showcasing the five retiring in-colors. I stamp the inside and envelope live. Libby donated her three projects! Thank You Libby!

The sheer volume of content that this kit warranted made me break up the video into two parts.

For Part one, I sped up some prep and stamping to keep it under thirty minutes and for part two I just gave up and let it go long.

The tips, tricks and designs make every minute of part two worthwhile.

Here is the link to part one ->...
