… it’s not The Monia. That’s what our grandson told his mother, reporting on my doctor visit early yesterday morning. Not that I was talking directly to him when I was updating Grandpa on the results, of course, but if my head had been clearer I would have noticed the attentive little boy and been prepared to hear my words quoted (sort of) later.
Poor Grandpa. He tried to pick up the slack, but he just doesn’t have the patience for the constant chatter. So it was still my job to field every question and followup, including how wolves and foxes eat deer. This, right before lunch.
Sometimes I could become hysterical at these extended discussions. Without the experience of raising children, I’m always gingerly feeling my way along that thin line between The Whole Truth and Good Enough Truth.
Anyway, it’s not pneumonia, just bronchitis. And that is good news.
Starting tomorrow, for one week — November 23-30 — save up to 50 percent on select products during Stampin’ Up!’s Online Extravaganza!
To make it even better, there will be flash sales that last 24 hours on November 23 and November 30, the first and last days of Online Extravaganza. But remember: Online Extravaganza savings are only available while supplies last, so get them while you can!
I was surprised that the Square Pillow Box Thinlits Die is retiring January 4 and is only available while supplies last. It’s easy to construct, adorable to decorate, and perfect for small gifts or gift cards. It comes with 7 other accessory dies, including ones that can be used as windows in the pillow box.
So this retirement is just one more thing in life I don’t understand (it’s a long list).
Do you have it? If not, you may decide it’s just what you need when you watch this Stampin’ Up! corporate video. (And if you watch until the end, you’ll hear what I think was the catchiest convention song ever!) But don’t forget that these dies, like other accessories on the Holiday Catalog Retiring List, are gone when they’re gone!
Is there any cuter image in the Holiday Catalog than this deer? That is, all the deer in the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper? Stampers at last night’s camp got creative and added tiny Red Glimmer Paper noses to the deer that didn’t have them! I think this is one pack of DSP that may not have any pieces left when it leaves us; I’ve used every piece.
Dove of Peace. What a perfect sentiment for this Christmas.
This is the final card from last month’s Jingle Jump. Like most products I’ve used this fall, this stamp will only be available through December 28. With an image this beautiful, it’s easy to create a stunning card. (Fast, too!) Here, we embossed the image in silver, then colored selected areas with markers
We’re saying goodbye to retiring products from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog; but before we do, here’s an opportunity to order your favorites. Retiring products will only be available until January 4, or while supplies last, so order them before they’re gone!
Note: Due to high demand for retiring stamps, Stampin’ Up! will keep producing retiring stamps until December 28, but not accessories — accessories are only while supplies last.

Welcome to Wonderland! I hope you’ll experience some of the magic that name implies as you hop through this edition of the Stamp Review Crew’s blog hop. If you are arriving from The Stamping Blok, I know you did! (Remember that you can click the banner above to find all the stampers participating today.)
So just how many tree stamps does a person need? At least this one more — that cluster of firs wouldn’t let me go! I’ve used it on a lot of projects (you can search for Wonderland here on my blog to see them), so my challenge was to think outside the box … and I did, with a star and circle! The star outlined with Dazzling Details (Silver Foil) was a given, but I wanted more. So I pierced a size-larger star on the Soft Sky circle, then started assembling.
But the sparkle wasn’t quite enough for me, so I carefully removed the circle from the card front and stitched through the piercing with Silver Metallic Thread. Then I finished the card.
But no, what about that gorgeous Silent Night? Could I add a silver-embossed piece of vellum curved to fit the circle? Sure! Just trace that curve ever so carefully and trim, then use the tiniest dots of Fine-Tip Glue to secure the vellum. Now that’s sparkle and shine — click the picture to enlarge it and you’ll see what I mean!
I’ll post the details later this week, along with some other pictures of this card. But for now, head to see what magic Tanya has for you at Tinkerin in Ink. See ya!
