Happy Wednesday my friends!  Today I have a wonderful suite of products to showcase – the Wood Textures Suite.  You can see all the beautiful products in this suite on page 158-159 of the new catalog.

I know you guys struggle with masculine stamping like me.  This suite is awesome because it fits the guys to a “T”.

I think the first thing that grabbed my attention about this suite was the Designer Series Paper Stack.

I absolutely LOVE this paper and the realistic look it has.  You can use the full sheet, you can use little bits, you can die cut pieces from it.

I also love how the Wood Crate Framelits are used with this Designer Paper for a true “wood crate” appearance.

The additional dies that come with the Wood Crate Framelits coordinate with the stamp set.  See?

The little label framelit works perfectly for all (4) of the decorative sentiments.  Love how this all coordinates!

Stampin’ Up has a great video on how this suite works together.  Let me share that with you…

 

I personally purchased the Wood Crate Framelits and the paper so I just need to add that sweet stamp set to my next order.  Had I been smart, I would have ordered the bundle.  I thought I didn’t need the stamp set.  Darn it.  Should have known that I would fall in love with it and I could have saved 10%.  Live and learn, right?

Nostalgia alert!  Does this look familiar to anyone?  Growing up, we had a Hi-Fi Stereo in our living room that was very similar to this one.  I remember listening to “Honey Bun” from “South Pacific” on that stereo.  I had no idea what the show was about but I loved that song.

Ginny had been saying for a while she wanted a record player for her birthday.  I thought she was joking but turns out, she really truly wanted one.  Amazon to the rescue!  Wait, let me rephrase that.  Amazon to the rescue IF Mom remembers to actually hit the “Submit’ button.  Ugh.  I was wondering why I hadn’t gotten a shipment notification yet.  Yesterday the record player came and she was one happy girl.  

The reason for me sharing this story was that Christina knew where all my old records were stored – in the garage.  What was I thinking?  I thought for sure they would all be warped but they were packed in the box really tight and were in great shape.  I had more fun going through those old records!!!  The one I was most excited about was “The Sound of Music” – my parent’s record that ended up in my collection, along with their “South Pacific” record too.  As you know, we love Broadway musicals and I totally forgot all the records I had.  A Chorus Line, Fiddler on the Roof, Bye Bye Birdie and Little Shop of Horrors. My favorites were the Beach Boys Endless Summer and American Graffiti.  I wore those records out when I was a teenager.

Isn’t it funny how what is old is new again?  The scratchy sound from those old records isn’t something you want…. but now a days, you do.  You can imagine how happy Ginny was with her birthday present… even if it was late. 

I hope that you all enjoyed this peek into the Wood Textured Suite!  I am feeling the need to go create a crate now!

Hope that you guys have a fabulous Wednesday and I will see you tomorrow for a new TEACH ME THAT tutorial featuring the Emboss Resist technique!  See ya then!

YAY!  It happened!  Ginny got her driver’s license with only 2 deductions, both on parallel parking.  Can you blame her?  Who doesn’t struggle with parallel parking?  I am so excited to say that “Mom Taxi” is no longer in business.  Ginny is a really good driver and a very defensive driver.  My Dad taught me defensive driving and I am so glad he did.  He taught me to always be watching what the other drivers are doing and to be prepared on how to handle it.  His advice has served me well and now I am passing that onto my kids.  Both Christina and Ginny and big advocates of NOT being on your phone while driving (this mom LOVES this).

To celebrate her birthday, Christina treated her to a ComiCon (comic convention).  Here they are dressed in costume (because that is the best part of ComiCon).  

Christina is Kimmy Schmidt from “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” (a hilarious show on Netflix).  Ginny is decked out as a modern-day Merida from “Brave“.  Are they adorable or what?  Love it!  My whole family then went out to dinner at our favorite restaurant.  Gotta love family time!!!  Funny story….. someone called the cops on us.  No, I’m not joking!  There is a bingo hall right next to the restaurant and after dinner we were letting the kids run off some energy and we chatted some more.  Someone inside didn’t like that we were loitering outside and a police officer showed up.  He was super nice and thought the phone call was ridiculous as we were not doing anything wrong. He said he gets calls from them all the time.  Bingo must be pretty serious and having any movement outside the windows is a distraction.  Well, we weren’t arrested so that was good.  lol  Just still find it funny that someone would actually call and bother the police with something like that.

Ginny’s birthday weekend was completed with yet another trip to Tulsa (we have seen more of Tulsa in the past month than we ever saw in 17 years of living here).  We had tickets to see “Matilda: The Musical” and WOW was it amazing!  

No words can describe this show!  Written by Roald Dahl (Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory) and if you know his writing, his stories are very dark.  The music was incredible and this show had about 9 amazingly talented kids.  I don’t think any adult could sing and do such physical choreography but these kids had some power.  The performance we saw was the final performance of the national tour.  How sad those kids must be to have this show come to an end.

Busy busy busy weekend but tons of fun!  Weekends like this make me happy to see Monday though.  I need this week to be a little calmer…. and no police.

Thanks for joining me for MAKE IT MONDAY!  I love sharing tutorials with you and whether you have the stamp set or not, I hope you will play with this Ombre technique.  It’s a lot of fun to create.  See you tomorrow for another 2-Minute Tuesday Tip video.  I’ll give you a hint…. it’s another tip on bow making.  I know you will want to see it.  Until then my stampin’ peeps!

Today is a VERY special day in our house.  Today is Ginny’s 16th birthday!  You guys already know how proud I am of this girl.  I could gush for hours on her, I really could.  She is one amazing kid!  This morning, we are headed to…. you guessed it, the DMV to have her take her driver’s test.  She is feeling really confident in all areas of driving except one.  Anyone want to take a guess?  It’s the one thing we all struggle with when it comes to being behind the wheel – the dreaded parallel parking.  Ugh.  I am 50 years old and I STILL have a hard time parallel parking!  I typically just keep driving around until I find a different parking spot.

She has been taking driving lessons from a local company (our schools no longer offer Driver’s Ed) and she gets amazing scores on her driving but today is the BIG DAY.  I know she will do well but I know she has got to be so nervous.

I will give you the update on Monday but for now, I need to go because she has to be there early.  Say a little prayer for her!

I have a special Ombre MAKE IT MONDAY for you Monday and I know you won’t want to miss it.  If you’re not already a subscriber, be sure to click on the SUBSCRIBE link at the top of my blog!  This will get you daily emails (Monday through Friday) from Simply Simple Stamping.  No more remembering to come back each day.

I hope that everyone has a relaxing and enjoyable weekend!  See ya Monday my sweet stampin’ peeps!

I don’t know about you, but when I see the new Stampin’ Up catalog, I immediately look for the new bundles.  I LOVE my framelits and matching stamp sets….and I love saving money when I buy the bundles.  I get so excited about the new stamping toys that I can play with.  Stamping is my therapy and NEW ways to stamp just makes me happy.

Today I want to share a video from Stampin’ Up on the new HOME LIFE bundle.

Can I be honest with you for a minute?  When I saw it, I said to myself, “Meh”.  It just didn’t excite me UNTIL I watched this little video and now I GET IT!  When I saw the stamp set, I just didn’t understand what it was all about.

I love the sample card.  Can you see the flowers and how they are ‘popped’ off the card?  The die that comes with this card cuts ALL the flower with one swipe through your Big Shot.  Not having to lay out every flower die is awesome.  If that doesn’t excite you, I don’t know what will.

Let me share today’s WHAT’S NEW WEDNESDAY video with you!

I know this bundle is moving to the top of my wish list now.  How about you?  Just click a pic to order yours!

I could use some advice.  Anyone out there live full-time in an RV?  Let me explain why I ask.  Christina will be graduating college in a year and a half.  She is going to be a teacher and here in Oklahoma, teacher salary is dead LAST in the nation (you can imagine how proud we are of THAT but that is another soapbox).  She is concerned about the cost of living,  knowing her salary will be so low, especially as a first-year teacher.

We have talked to her about the possibility of living in the RV rather than an apartment.  With the tiny house craze being the” IN” thing to do, an RV makes a lot of sense.

Pros:

  • It’s fully furnished so no furniture to buy
  • RV campground are about half the cost of an apartment (and utilities are paid)
  • She won’t have to get a roommate (if you’ve ever had a horrible roommate, you understand why this is HUGE)
  • As she is paying for the RV, she is investing in something, not just throwing money at rent
  • If she changes jobs, she can hook it up and move
  • She can paint and decorate any way she pleases
  • When she decides to move into a house, she either has a great RV for weekend camping OR she can sell it

Cons:

  • This will only work if she is in a state that has mild winter temperatures
  • If she has to move, she will have to rent a truck to do that
  • Will she feel safe in it?  The locks on RVs aren’t the best
  • Repairs – no landlord to come and fix things
  • It’s a smaller space than an apartment
  • If she decides it’s not for her, she has to store and sell the RV

Can you see why this is a tough decision?  We came up with the idea to have to spend 2 weeks in the RV this summer (she is living there now) and then another couple of weeks in December so that she can experience the two extremes.

So, now you see why I ask for advice from anyone who has done full-time RV living.  If you have suggestions, drop me an email at connie.stewart@cox.net.  I sure would appreciate any advice you have!

I am now just busting at the seams over this bundle.  What a great card with lots of possibilities!  I hope you enjoyed it too.

Be sure to come back tomorrow for TEACH ME THAT – my series teaching you new techniques or reminding you of some techniques from the past.  I will be working on tomorrow’s TEACH ME THAT this afternoon!

What a fun and crazy week it’s been.  Last night the kids sang the National Anthem at a Drillers baseball game. They sounded amazing!  The video is on Facebook and I am not sure how to post it here (CLICK HERE to go to the Broadway Bootcamp page).

Yesterday they treated the choir and drama teachers of the students to a luncheon. Ginny’s choir teacher drove to Tulsa for that and I’m so glad she did. They really spoiled the teachers and being one of the worst states in the nation for teacher’s salaries, it was nice to honor them and thank them for staying in Oklahoma to teach.

Tonight is the Showcase the kids have been working on at Bootcamp and to say I am excited is an understatement!  Ginny has shared so many amazing stories over this past week and tonight we get to see them strut their stuff!

I will share what I can about the performance on Monday. 

It’s been fun camping but this girl is ready to head home. We will pack it up all Sunday morning and it’s back home.  Yay!

Hope you all have an amazing weekend!  Have some fun, okay?  I will be back on Monday to share another Make It Monday!

TEACH ME THAT – Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders

TEACH Me That! Learn how to create with Dynamic Textured Embossing Folders at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - look for the June 15, 2017 blog post

TEACH me That! A new series by the Technique Design Team. Learn a new technique every Thursday at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com.

Today in Teach Me That, I will be showing you, step-by-step, how to use the Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.  Hmmmm that’s a lot to type so how about I call it DTIEF.   Everyone good with that?  Cool.

These folders are similar to our Textured Impressions Embossing Folders but there are some differences.

The DTIEF are designed to:

  • Leave a deeper impression
  • Give more detail
  • No bottom cutting plate required
  • Spritz with water or emboss dry
  • Be easier to sponge ink on final impression

Are you ready to learn how to use them?  Here we go!

  • Begin with you Big Shot Platform.  If you are using the platform with the hinges, you will want all the tabs ‘out’.

TEACH Me That! Learn how to create with Dynamic Textured Embossing Folders at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - look for the June 15, 2017 blog post

  • Lay the DTIEF directly on the Big Shot platform (no bottom cutting plate).TEACH Me That! Learn how to create with Dynamic Textured Embossing Folders at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - look for the June 15, 2017 blog post
  • Place your cardstock inside the DTIEF.  
  • Some die cutting machines can ‘cut’ through the paper.  It’s best to test on a scrap piece of cardstock first.  If your DTIEF is cutting into the paper, you should spritz with water first.  The Stampin’ Spritzer is perfect because it’s leaves a fine mist on your cardstock.TEACH Me That! Learn how to create with Dynamic Textured Embossing Folders at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - look for the June 15, 2017 blog post
  • Place a cutting plate on top of the DTIEF.  Run through your Big Shot machine.

  • Just look at the super deep impression!
  • You can leave it ‘as is’ or you can gently sponge ink to make the impressions pop even more.

Now you’re ready to create a card using the technique?  Here’s what I did with my dry embossed cardstock.

Day 3 of Broadway Bootcamp was unbelievable!!!  So much happened but the big thing was that Ginny landed a BIG solo for Friday night’s performance. The song is “Seasons of Love” (Rent) and at the end of the song there is a VERY high note that is always a show stopper. I will be sure to record it and share next week.

All the kids were treated to professional headshots and the make-up girl said to Ginny, “How many times a day do you get told you look like Taylor Swift?”  It’s true, she does.

Ginny also had her session with Faith Prince on her audition song and she taught her SO much.

Last night was the Broadway Dance Party. All the kids dressed as their favorite Broadway character. Ginny went as Maria from “Sound of Music”.

Here she is with Kristin Chenoweth and Faith Prince.

She had an amazing night! Today is a full day. She goes until 7:30pm and then off to a Drillers baseball game to sing the National Anthem. She won’t be back until about 10pm so yep…long day for sure. Does she mind?!? Heck no! She’s having the time of her life!!!

I just fell in love with the Pinewood Planks Hearts Card so I decided to make a video on it.  And guess what?  It is a MAKE IT IN MINUTES video too.  Be sure to tune in tomorrow for that!
