Great Times, Great Mail!

This sentiment came via Mr. Brown this afternoon, and it is a perfect statement to express what I experienced yesterday. Last night I had the privilege of introducing 8 people to the art of rubber stamping. By introducing, I mean that they had never stamped before ever. We had a wonderful time getting acquainted, and I was so proud of how they dove in and tried something new. Adults are not good at doing new things, especially creative things. They think they're going to look inept, so they don't try. Not this group! They created some beautiful cards and found out that beauty can be made with paper, ink, and stamps! I look forward to stamping with them again.

So, this is the new rubber that arrived today! SU!'s founder, Shelly Gardner, sent this as my Thanksmas present for being a demonstrator. Is that great, or what! I think it's so kind of them to communicate their appreciation for what we do representing SU! in this way! I'll have to set it aside until the weekend, though, because I have cards to design and paper to cut for tomorrow's Christmas Card Stamp-A-Stack. You'll be the first to see what I come up with, though. I do think you'll be able to get your own set in the new catalog, which will debut Jan. 1, 2008.

One last photo to share and then I have to go. This is what I demonstrated last night at the workshop. Those in attendance were wowed by the way glitter can add shimmer to a project by using everyday, ordinary packing tape! If you want details, leave a comment. There will be lots posted tomorrow, so check back here often.

Sparkle using packing tape? How do you do THAT? Are you able to send me a link to instructions or a tutorial? Thanks :) BTW, that bookmark is BEAUTIFUL!

nicole, I can't reply to you but it's an easy technique. punch holes, back the piece with packing tape with the sticky side up, rub glitter onto the sticky surface of the tape and voila!
