Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop

Welcome to stop 11 of the Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop for November.  If you are hopping in order, you have just come from Kim's Blog.  If this is your first stop on the hop, no worries; all the blogs are looped together so you wont' miss a thing.

The theme for this month is Thanksgiving or Gratitude.  As a Canadian I celebrated Thanksgiving in October so I opted for
a fall themed thank you card.

I used the card sketch from Fab Friday Stampin Challenge as well as from the fall wreath I created.

I saw Jael's photo of this wreath on Stampin' Connection, our Demonstrator only website, and knew I had to make one.  It follows the same premise as the Christmas Ornament I posted on Tuesday but uses the Autumn Accents Die to created all those leaves.

Stamps:  Day of Gratitude, French Foliage and Woodgrain
Inks:  Crumb Cake, Lucky Limeade, Rich Razzleberry,
Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango
Papers:  Crumb Cake, Lucky Limeade, Pumpkin Pie,
Rich Razzleberry, Soft Suede
Accessories:  Big Shot, Autumn Accents Die, Floral
Frames Framelits, Woodgrain Embossing Folder, 2-1/2"
Circle Punch, Word Window Punch, Bird Builder Punch,
Linen Thread, Antique Brads

That's it for me for this round.  I hope you have enjoyed this stop and now it's time to hop on over to Terry's Goin' Over the Edge Blog.

The New Stampin' Trimmer Is Here and It Is AWESOME!!!

The wait is over!  Our new and improved Stampin' Trimmer is here and it is flying off the shelves!  This trimmer was designed exclusively by paper crafters for paper crafters and because it was made by Stampin' Up!, you know it is a cut above the rest!

Watch the video:  Introducing the Stampin' Trimmer  

Features of the All-New Stampin' Trimmer
  • An extra-wide 6-1/4" cutting base and an extended 14-1/2" ruler
    • The extra-wide cutting base provides a large work area and is marked in 1/4" (4 mm) increments, allowing for small measurements. 
    • The right-side grid helps you measure and cut very thin strips.
    • The extended cutting arm has a stabilizing leg to provide a sturdy and steady cutting surface for longer cuts. 
    • When fully extended, the extended cutting arm sits flush with the trimmer base, providing more accurate and consistent measurements across the entire surface.
    • The cutting base and track include a full ruler, incorporating measurements down to 1/16" and grid lines that mark each quarter inch. 
    • All rulers and measurements on the base are printed under a plastic cover so your measurements won't wear off.
    • The base has nonskid feet, which keeps the Stampin' Trimmer securely in place on your work area.
  • A full 12" cutting and scoring track
    • The extra-long cutting track has space at the top and bottom so you don't have to take the cutting and scoring blades out when you're not using them. 
    • The track gives you enough space to cut or score a full 12" (30.5 cm) without having to remove or switch out handles. 
    • The cutting track locks in place for secure storage or transport. 
    • The track includes an insertion point for cutting and scoring blade handles so you can easily insert handles into the cutting track.
  • Specially designed handles and cutting track to ensure straight cuts
    • The hook on the scoring and cutting blade handles keeps the handles stable so the cuts are as straight as possible.
    • Handles come in two colors: dark for cutting, light for scoring. 
    • The precision tip on the cutting blade allows you to pinpoint precisely where you're cutting.
    • The point on the side of each handle shows you where the blade will cut, making it easy to see exactly where your cuts and scores will begin.
  • Storage compartment under base
    • The storage compartment holds scoring and cutting tools such as a Bone Folder, Simply Scored Stylus, extra scoring and cutting blades, and even business cards. 
    • Separate compartments within the storage compartment keep your tools organized, and the clear cover makes it easy to see what you've stored.
Get yours today through my online store or email me today!!!
