SCS get together!

hi everyone!!

we have had an exciting morning around the pezadoodle house.  pezza has been up since 4:30…no that’s not a typo.  she is trying to kill me.  by 7:30 in the morning i had been hung on, yelled at, whined to, berated for junk food and fired – all while trying to get some work done.  good thing she’s cute huh???  apparently when i took her up for her bath she noticed her naked skin matched our carpet color.  i here from my room hey mom wanna see me camouflage myself?  i look out the bath room door and she plants her naked self face down on the carpet and says LOOK! you can’t see me!!!  thank god for preschool is all i have to say after my morning!!!


susana has brought MORE NEW STUFF into the store so i wanted to be sure and tell you about it!  new Kraftin’ Kimmies stamps – terribly sassy!  new Tiffany Collection Petaloos – really pretty!  New Crate and Cosmo Cricket 6×6 paper stacks – i so love the 6×6 size!


i have been INSANELY busy lately.  between my regular work load, 3 issues of the magazine back to back to get the bonus holiday issue out to you and an SCS get tgether i am participating in it has just been crazy!

i can’t wait for the SCS party.  It is being held at Angela’s Happy Stamper in Reston VA.  there are 20 people attending.  we have an ABC swap, snacks to bring, PLUS i am teaching everyone TWO Viva Decor projects – a pin like i did for CHA plus a card technique i am in love with but can’t share on the blog quite yet!

so i have been working on my swap project – a set of 3 tags:

this is part of the process i had going – 60 tags all together YIKES!  thank goodness for my Cricut – LOVE that thing!  and i may have discovered a new fave adhesive – i got a sample at CHA and this is the first time i have used it. 

3M Scotch Scrapbooker's 2-Way Glue, 1.6 Ounce3M scrapbooker’s 2-way glue – i got a sample at CHA and so far i am in love!  it is basically a clear gel in a fat pen.  what’s awesome is that one end is a needle tip and the other side is a sponge applicator.  so that means ONE glue for these tags (or anything else) – small applicator for those teeny cricut cut layers and larger applicatore for the bigger pieces.  (do i TOTALLY sound like a commercial yet???)  my ATG gun has been beyond frustrating lately so i am really liking this stuff.  now i AM concerned about staying power AND whether that sponge applicator will be useable a second time – those things tend to dry out and be useless pretty quickly.  if they would put their quick dry white adhesive in this applicator style i would be even happier!  ok enough about that – here’s the three tags i am swapping to everyone:

cute but pretty simple – which is a necessity when you do 60!

what else have we been up to in the studio – magazine stuff of course:

yep that’s my cricut cake – the snacks i bring in will be appearing in the Holiday Issue so the attendees will get sneak peeks.

pez has been helping too of course!!!

well i have loads to do today so i am outta here!!!

  4. Can’t wait to see what you made with your cake. I still haven’t had time to get mine out. I’ve been doing all the stuff for the J’s Xmas ads & it’s killing me.
