My Blog Picks and Posts from Here and There Around the Web #4

 

 Hi All,

Here’s my latest set of Blog Picks from here and there around the web.  Generally you’ll see all SU here on my blog but here and there I find inspiration that is eminently CASEable with SU Product so will share that as well with suggestions for alternate stamps and paper.  Feel free to copy and paste this list and pass it around to fellow stampers or customers or whoever.   Keep in mind there is a lot of inspiration out there and these are just a few of what I’ve found that struck my fancy (so it’s very subjective).   If you are an SU demo or customer and would like to see a more extensive list I have newsletters for both groups (free for right now) with more details, FYI, video and tutorial links.  Email me if you are interested.   Now with that plug out of the way here’s this weeks list of links.

 

 Video’s

Christmas tip:  Wishing we had the more versions of the word joy?  My favorite word and most of the ones we have are retired!  ARRGGH!  I was surfing and found another stampers solution – Any set that has the word ENJOY also contains the word JOY!  Just ink the last three letters and you have your JOY!  Perfect!
