It may not look like it here on my blog, but I have been pretty busy creating some new things – I just can’t show you most of them…yet.  I will have some new photos to show you next week though for sure…so don’t go far!!

I do have a fun announcement though…

I have been asked to be a guest designer for another UStamp with Dawn and Friends!!  This time, all the projects created will be made for the Big Shot!!! Yah – we love our Big Shots!!

The dates for this fun session are from May 7th straight through to June 4th.  And this time I will be designing two projects – yep, two!!  I can’t wait for you to see them!

Wouldn’t you love to have a brand new, never before seen, project and tutorial download available to you every morning for a whole month?  That’s a lot of paper crafting!!

    I have participated in a previous UStamp event and LOVED it all. Not sure I can pick ONE favorite thing, but I am amazed at the talent of all the designers. I love getting tutorials for all the projects and the positive atmosphere throughout the program. I look forward to seeing your projects.

  3. I have not participated in UStamp before
    Would love the opportunity to be able to and then share these great projects with friends and customers. I can only imagine how exciting it would be to wake to a new tutorial each day, and the enthusiasm of being able to make it.

  4. Tamara says:

    Yes, I’ve been through a few rounds of UStamp. I loved waking up everyday and being able to check out a new, original projects. My favorites are/were the 3-d items I could make for teacher / hostess gifts.

  5. Melissa Brown says:

    No, I have never enrolled in UStamp. I’m most intrigued by a whole month of new project ideas, complete with tutorials on making them. I absolutely love the Big Shot and would love ideas on how to get more of my customers to want to purchase it as the price factor seems to scare them. Thanks for the chance to win!

  15. Gail White says:

    I have done one of your U Stamps, I liked being able to take my time. You really don’t have to check in every day if you get busy and that helped me be on the days when my schedule was hectic.

  16. Ad K. says:

    I have never done U Stamp but I like the idea of a new project tutorial every day and having the time I need to work on them. Some days are just really crazy and there is no spare time for creating, but knowing the projects will be there for when I have time appeals to me. Thanks for the chance to win a pass.

  18. Corina says:

    I have participated in U-stamp, and I like it, The most part I like is knowing I can save the projects; so, I can make them later. There is so many projects to make, but I would like to see more videos.
