Rocky likes peanut butter too!

video

Sitting here watching the Raven's game. Connor is eating some crackers with the little cups of peanut butter. Our squirrel, Rocky, who always comes up to the back door, must have smelled it and came running up! I gave him what was left and I could have filmed more, but of course Connor had to come out and scare him. I almost have him eating out of my hand!

My First Digital Album

Stampin' Up! will be releasing our new "My Digital Studio" software to customers on October 1st. As a demo, I could pre-order it. I just finished creating my first album. This is an 8x8 book that I created. You can also make a movie like I did here. This was sooo easy to do. I opened premade layout and inserted the pics. Then I added the background papers, some embellishments and stamps here and there. I should have it in 7-10 days to share with you! You can also make cards digitally, calendars and more! Be sure to click on my SU site in October to get your copy!

Well now you can with Stampin' Up! and our Build A Bear line! If you click on the link of the mini catalog in my sidebar you can see the products we have. The die cuts are also a fun way to keep the kids busy with Build A Bear paper dolls! If you'd like more info, I would love to talk to you about it!

Dog Bone Treats......for Humans!

I had some chocolate chip cookie dough in the fridge and want to make some cookies up. Decided to pull out my new Demarle Puppy Lover's Tray and use it! Be sure you don't fill your mold up too much as they will overflow the mold shape won't be as cute! These were just a hit with the "boys"!
Wouldn't these be great for a school with a dog as a mascot! A great sell for the concession stand at football games!
You can get yours too! (and remember these roll up for storage and there is a lifetime warranty!)

Blog Banner

I am playing around with My Digital Studio (a.k.a MDS), and am trying to create a new banner for the blog! The first one was too large, and now this one seems a bit small, but hey I made it from scratch and it was sooo easy to do! Need to add some embellishments, so I am sure it will change again! MDS will be available for customer purchase on October 1st~ So be sure to check out my website then and get your copy! So much fun! Happy Stamping & Knitting!

My Digital Studio!

One of the perks of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is being able to pre-order some of the new things before our customers can. We could pre-order My Digital Studio which can be purchased by customers on October 1st. I am playing around with it (when I should be cleaning my stamp room!) from time to time. I plan on doing hybrid pages so that I can print a smaller 8x8 page and add it to 12x12 cardstock and add other embellishments, journeling, etc. This is one page of many that I will be doing of our family vacation to the Outer Banks! This is so much fun and very user friendly!

Connor & Axel

We have been looking at old videos when Connor was a baby etc. I had to copy part of this one with my Vado to share. (hence the poor quality of a video of a video!) But Axel is now up running around the Rainbow Bridge! Connor would just sit and laugh at him! Happy Stamping & Knitting!
