My Top 10 ~ Ways to Cover Stamping Blunders

Everyone makes mistakes when they create and stamping is no different. You might drop an inked stamp in the middle of your nearly completed birthday card. Ackkkk!!! You might drip coffee on a scrapbook page. Whatever!  We have all faced that predicament and I have compiled some of my favorite ways that I have used to cover up some of my "ooops".

1~ a bow
2~ a flower
3~ glitter
4~ a snippet of designer paper
5~ for a typo, just restamp or reprint and stick on with pop-dots, right over the mistake
6~ a button
7~ a heart
8~ a tag
9~ a paper butterfly
10~ a stamped and cutout letter


I like to look at mistakes as "creative opportunities." And you know what...9 times out of 10, when I use one of these tricks, that is the first thing that someone compliments me on!  They always love how I added this or that!!! It really works!

Live your passion everyday!!

My Weekly Top 10..........Things From the Occasions Mini That I Hate to Say Goodbye To

Ach, I can't believe it's almost here, April 30th. That's the day we have to say our final farewells to many of the wonderful items that Stampin' Up! brought to us in the Occassions Mini Catalog. I thought it was one of the best minis in a long time and I found way too many things that I just had to have!!

SU! has posted a list of things that are in this mini that will still be available after Friday and many of them will be included in the new Idea Book and Catalog that will debut in just 2 months, July 1st. I will include that list here later in the week.

Even thought they are saving quite a few items, there are many great products that are going to be retired and I am going to miss them, oh so much!!

Here is the list of my 10 favorite things that I will miss when the Occasions Mini Catalog ends on Friday:

1~ Sweet Pea Stitched Felt accents. 

2~ Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Stack

3~ Well Scripted stamp set

4~ Love Bandit stamp set

5~ Very Vintage jumbo wheel

6~ Fox and Friends stamp set

7~ Little Angel stamp set

8~ Heart, scallop and bird On-Board books

9~ Tote-ally Tess stamp set

10~ Garden from the Heart stamp set

I will be featuring some of these retiring items all this week here on my blog!

If you want to order any of them before they are gone permanently, just click on the Stampin' Up! button and it will take you to my website where you can place your order and have it delivered right to your home!!

* We are having such a dreary, rainy Sunday. At least I don't have to feel guilty for not working outside and staying nice and cozy in my stamp room!

I know the rain will help all the spring flowers and plants and that's a good thing!!

Live with passion!
