24 Hour Stampin’UP! Sale







Double Fan Fold Card Face Book Video Re-do!!

This is the card we made on Tuesday night at 7:00pm on Face Book Live.  The internet was terrible… really.  So I went in after and made a video on Vimeo which is below.  Also below are the products used and the measurement.  I am sorry it took me an extra day… if you have Apple computer you know why.  For those of you not running Apples – they did an upgrade and all pictures now come up as HEIC not JPEG!!! WHAT!!  Yes, I am sure they told me on page 387 of whatever I said accept to get the upgrade.  Now I have to figure out how to change all my pictures back to JPEG so I can use them.  Okay – enough about computers – we love them.

I first saw a card made like this on a SU wed site for demo’s.  It was done in Brightly Gleaming DSP using Copper Foil.  It was awesome.  Since we had our first snow I of course used snow!

This is the card laid out as flat as I could get it so you can kinda see how the sides work and what I was talking about on the video about keeping the snowflakes matched.  IRL this is very sparkly and the snow flake on the front and the gems  sparkle even more.  You can purchase all the items I used at my online store here.

Here is the card standing up.  Really cool that it does that so nicely.  You can see the bling a bit better on this view.

Here is the video with NO pauses!     Share one you made on here, or let me know how you liked the card.

Set: Merry Moose

Dies:  So Many Snowflakes; Stitched So Sweetly

C/S:  Pacific Point; Snowflake Splendor DSP; Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper

Ink: Pacific Point

Other:  Blue Adhesive Blacked Gems.

Card base (mine is Pacific Point) is 7 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 1 1/4; 2 1/2; 5; 6 1/4  Next diagonally score from top left corner to bottom of 2 1/2 and then score top 2 1/2 score to bottom left corner.  Repeat the diagonally scores on the other end. (the video really helps here!

The foil/glimmer sheets (mine was Balmy Blue) cut 5 1/4 x 2 1/4 (middle piece) also cut 2 pieces at 5 x 2 1/4 (side pieces you will cut up)

DSP (mine was Snowflake Splendor) cut 5 x 2; also cut 2 pieces of 4 3/4 x 2 (side pieces to go on foil/glimmer paper)

I used Green Glue to adhere everything except the saying is up on dimensionals.  Remember with Green Glue a little goes a LONG way and just dot it on the small ends.  You can purchase everything to make this card or one like it with your chose of paper at my online store here.   There is still a sale on DSP!  check it out on my store.  Any questions, call me at 608-576-3198.

NOW go back and watch the video again and the scores, cuts and DSP will make sense.

Join me every Tuesday night at 7:00pm on Face Book live – just look for crazysustampers.


Stampin’UP! is having a 24 Hour sale!

Click here to see the list of stamps from the Annual catalog!  The host code to use is: FZCWFNYC.  Any orders of $100.00 will get a free box!

Boxes!  Boxes!  Boxes!  What are you talking about?!?  Well, as part of downsizing we have been working for a few weeks to put together boxes of retired items for you to buy (or get free with a $100.00 order from my online store HERE).  These boxes are $50.00 plus shipping and they have $150-$200.00 worth of products in them.  There are a few Christmas/Holiday ones, 5 InColor Boxes and the rest are a mix of things, Every box will be different but with similar items to the photos below.  The products are as is.  Some products have never been used and other have been used. 

I tried to match bundles together.  Like if I had a stamp set and die that went together they are in the box together.  I did not always have both.  If I had DSP that match or embellishments they are included in the box… see why it took weeks.  Below are a couple of pictures to show you what is in a box.

This is a Christmas box.  you can see it has stamps, you can’t see the two die under the wreaths, embossing folder that matched and the DSP.

This is a general box.  You can see I had the DSP, ribbon, stamp set and dies all for Animal Outings.  I also had the Little Ladybugs stamp and dies (was going to use them for Bingo…and Covid happened!).  There is an additional Tea set and dies. I think there are two more stamp set as well as various embellishments, embossing folder, and ink pad.

Another General box, with DSP, stamp set, dies, embellishments, ink pads.  The embellishments often have more than what came in the container as I would combine all my like embellishments together.

This a look (with my messy kitchen cropped out) of part of one of the many tables set up to make sure each box was filled to the top!

Check out the 24 Hour sale and order boxes!  These boxes will be great fun to open.  Just email me:  wmc@crazysustampers.com  that you want a box and I will sent you a paypal link.


Leader’s Summit Stampin’UP!

This has been a great but long week end.  I attended a virtual Leader’s Summit.  It was totally amazing! 

It started with getting a box in the mail about two weeks ago – that we were not to share – just open and be sure it was okay. 

Thursday Night the summit started off with a toast – yes, that was what was in the box from Tiffany’s glasses to toast with.  This was how the summit ended as well. 

We had the opportunity to hear leaders in the industry such as Brenda Ster and Lisa Carmen Wang.  There was also many top demonstrator as presenters.  We also got to go into small (6-9 people) breakout session with people  from all over the Globe. 

One night we went virtually to Sara’s house and Sara and Shelli cooked dessert’s for us.  Sara’s was a Texas sheet cake that I love.

It was totally incredible.  Really help me realize what a great company I work with.

Only one not too happy with me being on the computer all week end was Rory!  Yes, he got to go out and to play but not as much as usual.  Guess who thinks he runs the house.  I will share pictures later in the week – He has gotten huge… and is teething… I think I am too old for this.

Thanks for being here!

Cooking at Sara’s – Look at those mixer’s!

Closing toast to us from the Leader’s of Stampin’UP!

IT IS HERE! SU’s New Die Cut/Embossing Machine!

Good Afternoon!  I have tried all morning to get the video on here…. I think the brain cells for doing that have totally disappeared!  I will get someone in next week to help me!  So there is a video on Face Book you can see, but I went back and took just photo shots so you could see how you could see how to get a machine free and some about the machines.This is the new Die Cutting and Embossing Machine!  Totally awesome.  I was not going to get one, but heard good things so I did.  I was surprised it is a heavy as the old one, but much more slick and modern looking!  Strong, did I mention Strong!  Love the handle and all the SU Labels on it.  Very easy to store.

The Machine comes with plates.  THEY ARE NUMBERED!!! Even I can count to 5 – I only need to count to 4 to use them. 

 Two #3 plates which are cutting plates like before.  Hope these won’t bend.  I seem to have lost #2 – but I promise it will be in your box if you win the FREE machine.

Below is the contest – with the Host Code for online ordering (Yup, forgot that last night!)  I will be checking in here and on FB during the week to let you know how it is coming.  I am really excited to get to $1,000.00 in sales so one of you will get a new machine delivered right to your house.

Thank you for staying with me and choosing me to be your demonstrator.  I have found the best people through stamping.  It is like finding your Tribe!  Okay now go find Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas toys to buy!  Have fun.

Tonight at 7:00pm Central time – Face Book Live!

Yes, here is the box – yes, still unopened….. very, very not like me.  I usually tear into Stampin’UP! boxes as soon as they get here!  Come laugh with us on FaceBook Live tonight and see not only the box opening, but how the machine works and how you can get entered to get one FREE!  On FB look for CrazySUStampers. 

If you can’t make it live I will have a video here (fingers crossed) later in the night.

I know that most of you have had the New Christmas Mini Catalog for a month now…Little hard to get into Christmas with it in the 90’s?
From now on Stampin’UP! will be starting the Christmas Catalog in August. No, SU did not provide any snow for August!  The annual catalog will start in May.
I have my new Die/Embossing Machine I am going to open live and show you what it can do. I would have a picture of it here – but it actually is still in the box!  Why? I have to get into the virtual world… I will be providing a lot of laughter with my mistakes! I also thought I would thank you all for helping me stay in business during this “NEW” time. I know this is new and scary for a lot of us.
I will be having a one week contest for a FREE Die/Embossing machine.
Remember in class when you put your card front on the card base upside down or backwards and I would say send it to your upside down and backwards friends? Well you may be seeing me upside down and the words backwards on the FB live! We can laugh together. I have been practicing, we will still be laughing.
I hope you will be able to join me on Tuesday night at 7pm Central time. Check out my blog later that night if you can’t join in person.
If by some chance you did not get your Christmas Catalog let me know and I will be more than happy to get one to you.
Yes, there is a good, very good chance you might see some other new product – I never have been good with secrets!
Thanks for choosing me as your stamping demonstrator!

Checking out my Blog! NEW TOYS!

Yes, I am hoping this works.  I have been trying to learn how to add payments to this… not happening fast!  Also been spending hours learning how to work online… still learning!  What a different world we are living in.

So how are you?  On the front lines – thank you.  Home with kids – good thing they can go outside a bit.  Home alone – send out some cards and see the happiness that flows.

I spent a couple hours in the yard.  The front bushes  got trimmed – okay, no laughing, they will look a little better after a few days!

Did this with A LOT of help from my friend.  Yes, that is a circle garden of flowers in the middle of the lawn, who knows why it is there!

The reward was not only getting the bushes clipped and things racked out but seeing the flowers start to come out!

Share some pictures of what you have been doing!

To Business, Stampin’UP! has a special preview coming out April 1st, yes, tomorrow.  It is a suite called the Ornate Garden Suite.  It has two bundle included in it; Ornate Thanks Bundle and Ornate Style Bundle.  The suite also includes an Embossing Folder Special DSP, Gems and Ribbon.  This is a sneak peak as this bundle will be in the new catalog!  BUT the best thing is…. Stampin’UP! has it in stock, in Utah, in the warehouse – sooooo – NO Back Orders! I would recommand getting it as soon as you can as no matter how many SU has in the warehouse you know we are all just not patient when it comes to new toys!

I am really excited about this kit – there is an additional sneak peek – the DSP has one of the new InColors in it!  I will be making video’s of how to use it, have some online lives during the month to make cards together.  If you buy the entire suite or just the bundles it will be fun to play during this next month of “stay at home”.  You can check out here to order it online from my store.  Sorry, no picture of it, I haven’t figured out how to put stock pictures on here!  I will be sending out free card packets to make to those who order.  If you have questions contact me here or call: 608-576-7103.


The Trees Are Down

Well, actually they have been done for a few weeks now.  One of the top of my Home To Do List was getting the trees cut back and cut down.  I am talking Huge, Huge Oaks cut back so that the branches would not fall on my house or the shed and that the Huge (think 3 time higher than the house) Dead Oak be cut done so it didn’t fall on the neighbors houses.  It was such a relief when they were done.  Oh, and all the relief came pouring back last night when the wind speeds were 35 – 40 miles per hour.  I did not have to worry about the trees!  Here are a couple of picture of them.  I think a good set to scrape book this will be Rooted in Nature – what would you use?

Oak Trees Down

The big tree is from the back, all the other ones were from the front.  I put a shoe there to give you some size.

that is my roof!

Okay this is my house on the right and you can see one of the places that the limbs were cut off so …. no more branches over my house.  The house directly in the middle of the picture is the side of my neighbor’s three story house and the tree in front also got cut. 

Great by product – well probably many, but one is Jesse has wood to chop on when he gets mad, and I have a ton of wood for heating for the next year or two!

Thanks for sharing my world today!


Spring is HERE!

Spring has arrived in Wisconsin.  Weekend had a highs in the 50’s and the snow that fell last night is already gone.

Today was the first day of the new SAB 2nd release.  You will want the DSP.  Check it out HERE.

I thought I would share a Get Well card.  Making cards with the Tulips stamps and Punch is so easy.

Let me know if you and your friends would like a class or a Girls Night Out.  I am having a Bingo Night at the end of the month with great prizes and a huge Black Out for the last game.

Tomorrow and Today!

Tomorrow first!

No photo description available.Stampin’UP! is having a one day flash sale that is Free shipping!  Starts at 12:01 am tonight and goes until 11:50 pm tomorrow!

This is a great time to stock up on items from the clearance rack and card stock!


Ok, Today – We are doing the last room upstairs.  This was David’s room so it has a lot of David and Wendy memories.  We are going to take everything out, move the bed out and then put shelves in and then put boxes back in on shelves for me to go through.  NOT GOING THROUGH ALL THE BOXES TODAY.  I will be going through the boxes as I can process the memories.  My great team is helping – it was really their idea to do it today, tomorrow and Thursday and then have team here for meeting on Friday and can help finish up.  This is the only room in the top of the house that has not been gone through, cleaned, cleared out, sorted, remade into what I wanted, and kept up.  This is also the most emotional charged room since so many good memories are with this room. So I have one picture of the room before.  I will share the after!  Send prayers this way this week!

Happy Stamping!
