Finally back on the boards again after Winter Storms, Power Outages, Health stuff and a life lived with a cat! More on that later…for now……
To celebrate getting back on the board (courtesy of the very generous Dawn Rapsas), I have 5 free passes to give away to the current USTAMP session – Big Shot Brilliance!! Projects to DIE for!! 2011
If you have a Big Shot or are planning on purchasing one (from me hopefully :D) this session of USTAMP is for you. Some brilliant designers including some whose names you might recognize from the SU world are lining up in the bull-pen to borrow a baseball analogy.

To compete for the 5 free passes Dawn so graciously gifted me with…leave me a comment on this post by 8am (West Coast time – PST) Saturday and tell me what your favorite Big Shot die(s) or accessory item is. I’ll announce the winner on Saturday afternoon and pass the info along to Dawn. Make sure to leave me your email address that you want her to send your linked invite to.
Note: Miss Wicketcat has requested the honor of randomly selecting the names from a bowl so if your winning name appears with a scratch mark or two in a following post you’ll know why! She finds Random.org just a little too sterile and wants in on the blogging gig – personally I think she’s tired of seeing all the older posts with Sandycat’s paw’s all over them – hee,hee – and wants some action of her own.
To start the ball rolling in the favorite die, etc. category here’s mine:
I love them all!! Okay…seriously I do but if I had to choose one category it would be the Textured Impressions Folders and if I could pick only one it would probably be the Finial Press Folder.
I love embossing my 3D Christmas Trees cut from the O Christmas Tree die with Finial Press not to mention the flashing tea light holders I made over the Christmas Holiday. That Christmas Tree die is possibly my favorite die too! I love creating forests of paper trees and gifting them always produces smiles on the face of the recipient. I love Karen Burniston for creating that die if for nothing else (though she writes a hilarious blog too) so you can bet I’m jazzed as all get out that she’s one of the designers for this new USTAMP session!
My other favorite die is unfortunately retired from Stampin Up (though available elsewhere) – the Birds and Branches Decorative Strip Sizzlit gets used quite a lot in my personal designing.
Luckily Stampin’ Up is always adding new dies so I know I’ll be seeing more favorites down the line. Hint: The Summer Mini is just around the corner and has some lovely new Big Shot items!
My thanks once again to Dawn and her generous soul for providing these free passes. Stampin’ Up Demonstrators are the best family a girl could have – trust me on that. Since joining Stampin’ Up I’ve found new sisters and the occasional brother in person, online and around the world. Only one of many great reasons you should consider signing up. To hear the others please contact me by email (click the email badge in the sidebar) or through my on line Demonstrator Business Website (click the link).
Hugs and blessings to you all and looking forward to seeing you and your Big Shot at USTAMP! – Jean
