New (to me!) Stuff!

I was so excited to get to play with some new Stampin' Up! goodies this morning. I had a Stamp Camp a few weeks ago and accidentally ordered TWO stamp sets in FRENCH instead of English. DUH!  So I had to wait for them to be exchanged. :(  Stampin' Up! has AWESOME customer (and demo) support though, and they don't charge anything to exchange an item and ship it to you.  All I had to pay was shipping to get the incorrect items TO them since it was my fault and not theirs.  If it had been THEIR fault, I wouldn't have even had to pay that!  I think that is AMAZING service.  A lot of places will charge a restocking fee or make you pay to send the corrected item back to you.

The stamp set (well, one of them!) that I had incorrectly ordered is Perfectly Preserved, along with the coordinating Cannery Set Framelits. I wanted to make some "thank you" tags to attach to the workshop orders I am delivering this weekend so I thought I would share them with you!  I was able to use up some tags that I got in an old Stampin' Up! kit but you could easily make something similar with the Two Tags Bigz Die.

I don't know why I didn't get this set earlier!  It is so versatile and really easy to use with the framelits.  If I have time later today I am going to make some up with gingerbread men and candy canes inside for Christmas!  They would make great gift tags too...hmmmm! I think I have a plan for this afternoon. :)  Good thing I am a hunting widow today!  Oh, I almost forgot!  The base cardstock is Chocolate Chip and kind of dark to write on, so in the inside I wrote my thank you note with the Gold Stampin' Dazzle Marker.  It looks really nice and saved me the time of cutting a piece of vanilla cardstock for the inside!

  1. LOVE these. I wasn't sure if I really should get the or not, and now I can see that they are quite versatile. I sure hope they make it into the big catty and not get discontinued. (Cry, cry, sniff, sniff as all the really cool stuff seems to. Anyway, I thought I should let you (my upline) be the first to know I started a new blog for my stamping/crafting stuff - that and I want to play along with your challenges. it is:
