Queen Elsa's Been Kidnapped!!!


So....last night I spent the evening fine tuning the tutorial for Queen Elsa's Punch Art Dress.  I saved all the changes and went to bed....thinking I was ready for it to go "LIVE" this morning.....


I can no longer OPEN the files on my computer!!!!  I have tried everything I can think of.
My personal "Geek Squad" husband, Mike is on travel and is supposed to come home sometime this evening.  I'm PRAYING he can make some magic happen and retrieve the files.  If not.....You will hear me crying from wherever in the world you may be.

I'm so sorry for the delay....

Sometimes technology stinks.

Princess Punch Art Announcement

Happy Tuesday Peeps!

Thanks for stopping by today.  I know my posts have been a bit sporadic and I do apologize.  I have some of the BEST NEWS EVER and it has been keeping me incredibly busy.  If you've followed me for a bit, you know of my love affair with punches and paper and ALL things punch art.  I just LOVE it.  I love taking tools that were creating for one thing and finding a ton of other possibilities for them.  Punches to me are like a "staple" in your wardrobe....sort of a "little black dress".  You invest in that dress and you can take it and wear it a million different ways.  That's how I think of punches.  A circle is NOT just a circle.  An oval is NOT just an oval.  I feel the same about Stampin' Up's Framelits too.  The sky's the limit!

Well....I have dreamed for many years of being able to share my love of punch art and paper with LOTS of people.  I mean A LOT of people.  A couple of weeks ago my dream came true!!  I had a phone call from Stampin' Up! asking me to be a Main Stage Presenter at this year's "Inspire~Create~Share" Convention 2014 in Salt Lake City this July!!!!!  God is SO good!  I'm excited...giddy...weepy...nervous....and just plain bowled over!  Needless to say, I've been glued to my studio ever since.  I have SO many ideas!!  My brain is racing most of the time.  I just can't WAIT to share what I truly LOVE to do with demonstrators from all over the country and Canada.

So....I'm still here.  I promise.  

For those of you who have been asking about the newest Princess Punch Art Tutorial for "Queen Elsa" from Disney's "Frozen"....This is the week you've been waiting for!

"Queen Elsa's" Punch Art Tutorial 
will debut this Friday, June 13th!! 

I will post it here on my blog with all of the other princesses.  To see all of them, just go to the top of this page and click on the "Tutorials For Sale" tab.  I'm sincerely sorry for the delay with the tutorial.  I can't wait to share it with you and I know you'll have tons of fun making dresses of your very own.

Here are the dresses that have tutorials just waiting for you.

"Princess Anna"

"Snow White"

Okie doke....I'm off to the studio!  Wish me luck!  If you're a SU! Demo and will be at Convention, PLEASE come by and say "Hi!".  I'd love to meet you. 

Wishing you a magical day!

Meet "Trixie"! - New Suitably Punched Critter

Happy Friday!!

I spent some time in the studio this morning and I had a blast.  I created a brand new Suitably Punched Critter and I'd like to introduce you to her.....

Please say, "Hello" to "Trixie"!

Trixie is a big fan of the '80's.  LOL  She just makes me smile....How about you?  I've been working on some new Suitably Punched Critters that will be making their debut at this year's Stampin' Up! "Inspire~Create~Share" Convention in Salt Lake City in July.  I was absolutely THRILLED when Stampin' Up! called and asked me to be a Main Stage Presenter this year and share my LOVE of paper and punch art.  I'm not gonna lie....I'm shaking in my boots a bit but I'm SO focused on being able to have a chance to inspire others to give punch art a try that I'm hoping the nerves will subside.  It's honestly a dream come true.

Alright....I've got to close up shop a little early today.  Tonight I'm taking Brittany and my mom to Wolf Trap for the opening night of Disney's Beauty and the Beast. (a Broadway Production).  We gave the tickets to Brittany for her birthday this week and it's going to be a fantastic "girls' night out" for sure.

Wishing you a wonderfully relaxing weekend,

Work of Art

Happy Wednesday, Peeps!

I have definitely decided that I need to invest in a pair of roller blades.  It has been SO busy this week.  Whew!  Roller blades might make things a little easier.  LOL

Tonight was one of my favorite classes of the Inkerbelles were in the house.  Woot!  I love my team of stampin' ladies.  They are just SO much fun and I love that we have our love of stamping (among many other things) in common.  We had a great time chatting about the new catalog and sharing our wish lists and favorites.  We all agree that it's the BEST catalog EVER.  Do you have your copy yet?  If not, I can send you one for FREE.  Just let me know.

Every month at our Inkerbelles Team Gathering I have special projects for the girls to create and take home with them.  The projects vary from cards to 3D items and more.  Tonight they each made a set of five cards using the new In Colors and then a fun tote that would be a great gift for lots of different people....a teacher, bus driver, office mate etc.  Let me show you...

This little cutie is highlighting some fun, new products from the new catalog.  The box is made from the new "Hello Honey" cardstock (Item #133678) and the band around the box is from one of my favorite new packs of DSP (Designer Series Paper)  "Sweet Taffy" (Item #133693)

Isn't it yummy??  I love it!

The sentiment, "You are a Fabulous Work of Art" is from the new "Work of Art" Stamp Set (Wood Mount #134111/Clear Mount #134114)

...and one of my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE new embellishments...
"In Color Clothes Pins" (Item #133630)

 Don't you LOVE them????  I have a feeling I'll have those on every order!  LOL
I'm telling you....Every time I look at the new catalog I find more projects and things that I fall in love with.  Honestly!
