Holiday Mini, and MY DIGITAL STUDIO contest from Stampin' Up!!!!

Good morning! Happy September! (Where HAS the year gone?!?) It's that time of year again - yes, that's right, the HOLIDAY MINI is up and open for business!!! May I just say (AGAIN, for those of you who read regularly! :D) that it would be far easier for me to list what I don't want from this Mini, than to list what I do want?!? :D

One of the MAJOR items in this Mini is the new Simply Scored Scoring Tool (featured on pages 6-7 of the Holiday Mini, item #122334, $29.95). It is AWESOME!!! I'm really enjoying using it to create lots of things - including today's sample. :)

Medallions are coming back in a big way, and using the Simply Scored makes it sooooooooo easy! (Also used IN THE GARDEN DSP, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White, Melon Mambo embossing powder, heat tool, embossing buddy, Boho Blossoms punch, the biggest circle punch, Big Shot, Petals-a-plenty Texturz Embossing Folder, modern label punch, Versamark, dimensional, Crop-a-dile, gold glass glitter.) I mean, how easy is this? And only the word stamp was inked at all! :)

Second thing I wanted to tell you about: Stampin' Up! is hosting a MY DIGITAL STUDIO contest! Here are all the details:

My Digital Studio Contest Starts Today!

September 1, 2011

Autumn's in the air, the frost is on the pumpkin, and it's the perfect time to get cozy creating My Digital Studio cards and photobook pages for the My Digital Studio Contest! You and your customers could win $400 in FREE My Digital Studio digital downloads. And there's more! Winners and finalists will also receive a digital pin for their DBWS site, personal blog, or Facebook page.

We're accepting entries today through October 15. The contest is open to all demonstrators and customers who have access to My Digital Studio in the US, Puerto Rico, and Canada (excluding Quebec). Demonstrators and customers will be judged separately; ten finalists--five customers and five demonstrators--will be chosen by Stampin' Up! judges, and the public will determine six winners--three customers and three demonstrators--via online voting.

Find more contest information on

I'm entering! :D I'd LOVE to see what you enter, too!

OK, I'm outta here. We start teaching school tomorrow, have an inservice tonight, and auditions for FATHER OF THE BRIDE this weekend. If you'd like to help with the show, please contact me - and want to audition?!? AWESOME! Contact me for details!!!!

Time to start stamping and designing. Have a wonderful day - and take the time to STAMP something, too!

I hope it's okay to be honest in my comment . . . I was disappointed with the holiday mini. So many of the sets I was interested in had Halloween stamps included, and since I will have nothing to do with that holiday, I'd be throwing away 1 out of 4 stamps or so. Perhaps you can pass my comment on to SU! and they can change that in the future. Love the medallion on your card!

Ginny, it's ALWAYS OK to be honest. :) I'm sorry you were so disappointed - but I will definitely pass that on!! There's something on almost every page that I love, but I don't do Halloween, either. :) Praying for you and Phil - and thank you for almost always leaving me a comment! :)
