Unmounting your Stampin Up Wheels Video

I have to admit I really hate the whole wheel idea. Buying cartridges and the wheel roller is such a waste. I rather spend my money on stamps. So had a few wheels laying around, not being used.

Today I decided to unmount and while doing that I made a video on how to do it. In the end of the video you will see how I used my Angel Company acrylic blocks to stamp. I also want to mention that these are easy to store in DVD Cases or in any other stamp storage system you may have. It will save you room and lots of money on cartridges so you can buy more Angel Company stamps! 🙂

The Acrylic Block are available on my website… Click here.

I recommend the 1 1/2 x 8 inch OR the starter kit, i used the biggest one in the starter kit on my video

Those yummy Kai scissors to cut your stamps with are available here – they make a great investment!

You can also purchase the Creative Cling from The Angel Company

I am planning on making more videos real soon now that I figured out Windows Movie Maker.

I will be showing how you can stamp the back of your unmounted stamps soon too. I know alot of people like to see the image before they stamp. Stay Tuned!

The music on my video is by Dr John!

Happy Anniversary to me!!

Today is my 10th year wedding anniversary. My amazing husband bought me a brand new camera!!

Ever hear of a Nikon D40? Neither have I! but OMG this thing is amazing. It is charging right now, but I will take a picture of the card I made for him. I did buy him a gorgeous Kenneth Cole watch, which he loves 🙂

COOL HUH??????????

This is the card I made for him, i used my cricut!! He bought me the cricut for mothers day! What an awesome hubby!

AND this is the watch I bought him! its a kenneth Cole, and it is gorgeous!

Penguins Pop Up Card


I used Perky Penguins here from the angel company, I never made a pop up card before so I thought I would give it a try. I used two layers of cardstock, but next time I will make the pop up part with patterned paper so it wont be so thick.

I love Perky Penguins, arent they cute? I made their hat fluffy with Liquid Applique in white, but it also comes in alot of other great colors from the angel company. I colored them in with Prismas and I was done. The snow flake paper is from my LSS.
