I have had company and my granddaughter is visiting...fun, fun, fun... but you don't get much blogging done. :-)
Also a very, very good friend of mine and one of my TAC downline....lost her home and everything she owns in a fire. She barely escaped with her life. I am so thankful to God for allowing her cat, Cheba, to save her. Barbie is truly a treasure in my life and there would have been a huge vacant spot left in my heart.

Listen to the 911 call:
I am in the process of organizing stampers to send her stamping items. If you would like to help, please contact me at Pawsnstamp@crestviewcable.com
Also, I am in the middle of preparing for our 4th annual WAG (Western Angel Gathering). It will be a lot of fun!!!! Any Northwest Angels out there.....you still have time to register. Actually, you don't even have to be in the Northwest!!
We had the chance to go to a Draft Horse Show this past weekend. What gorgeous animals!!! Here is just one team that was there.
Well, better get to playing so I have something to share next time.

Both of my granddaughters and my Sister help me with my TAC open house. The girls looked forward to it all week. They helped welcome the guests and hand out little gifts.
These were little holders to keep my business card handy and also a wish list. I left them blank so that each person could color them to their own liking.
This is the inside.

Well, it's finally arrived!!! The new TAC catalog. Oh what fun to get to see the catalog at Seminar and then look at it page by page on the plane trip home. I have to admit, there are a LOT of new stamps that I just have to have and of course ALL the new Soar With It papers.
What I am excited most about is that we now have the cardstock, hardware and ribbon to match our Soar With It designer papers. And, they have listed, for our convenience, the inks that match.
- It is now biannual so it is half the size and not as overwhelming ...
- Over 370 stamp sets with 200 of them under $12!!
- We are now selling the Crop-a-dile for hole punching and attaching eyelets and snaps ... (Makes a great hostess half price item!) :-)
- Memory purse and new organizers to carry to scraps and other events
- New alphabets in all sizes and styles .... some open for paper piecing
- Chipboards books in all different sizes and shapes
New Gift with Purchase stamps (Free with a $30 purchase) and Hostess sets (starting with a $100 FUNshop!) that are all great!!
So how do you get one???
Come to my Open House this Friday-Saturday July 13th-14th (e-mail me for directions), do a fun make n take, check out the swaps I received at Seminar .... spend $30 on stamping supplies from the catalog and get one FREE!!
Or host a FUNshop to get one FREE!!
Or purchase one for $4.95 and just add shipping.
Another new addition to the catalog is that the compatible acrylic mounts are listed with each stamp set. No more guessing which ones you need.
The catalog is smaller, 128 pages....but the price is also less, too. Now, you get a catalog cram packed with ideas for just $4.95. Please e-mail me, if you are interested so that I can get one out to you. I am mailing them priority for $4.60. The Post Office is being sort of grumbly about mailing them media mail as they are 'advertisement'. But...I'll see what I can do. My e-mail is Tacstamper109@yahoo.com
As a demonstrator, I love this new catalog, not only for all the wonderful ideas, the simplicity (not so overwhelming for a new stamper) but also carrying 10-20 catalogs to FUNshops won't break my back!!! WHOOOHOOOO!
Another cool thing is that there will be a brand new catalog in 6 mo. AND, with it, new GWP's and Hostess sets!! So, now you will have even more to choose from.
In the next days, weeks and months, I am going to share different items from the catalog with you and ways to use them. So check back often!!
Have a FantasTACal day!!!

Then I did this trading card using the Flourishes set on page 21 for the background. I stamped it in Versas Mark and then embossed it using our Transendence embossing powder. I made sheets of background paper using Palette reinkers and alcohol on glossy cardstock and then cut out the hearts!
There are just a lot of fun ideas using coasters. I plan on doing more things at Stamp Camps using them.
Finally, I made a few Special Trades for my roomies and Team Members. These are little acrylic photo frames that you can get at Wal Mart. I just stamped....yep....the Ooopsie Daisy set, layered it onto cardstock and then onto Yellow MM cardstock and slid it inside...and attached the calendar to the front of the frame.
