Woof Me!

July 2009
Pat my head once to return to the main blog

July 19 2009 Oops!  I've been asleep on the porch!  I'm okay.  Thanks for asking!  Yesterday I partied with the Diva Girls of the 24/7 Stampers.  They came, they ate, they chatted... well, you get the picture. 

They distracted me so much that I didn't get to bark out a welcome to our newest 24/7 Stamper:  Sonia Hicks of Spokane Valley, Washington!  Sonia's on the A list because Ann is originally from Washington.

Today's card is made with the Stampin' Up! For All You Do stamp set that is included in the Mini Starter Kit that is available for a limited time.  You can find out more in our Help Wanted section.





Ann & I are saving a place for you on our team of 24/7 Stampers.  Why not contact us today & see how we can help you build your dream!

      Chow, Baby!
July 16 2009 Welcome, welcome, WELCOME!  We've got two new demonstrators on our 24/7 Stampers team!  WOO HOO!  Leslie makes it so that we're now covering 15 states!  Are we in yours?  You could change that!  And Claudia almost lives just around the corner!  We're happy to add these two new demonstrators to our team! 
  • Claudia Sharp, Yuba City, CA
  • Leslie Jones, Opp, Alabama

Ann was on the phone yesterday & swore that I got into something because we both heard a crash (albeit a soft one).  She looked outside, nothing.  She looked for me as I was coming out from my nap.  Nope!  Wasn't me!

The overloaded coat bar in the front closet had decided to quit working for us!  All the coats were down.  Now Ann has to buy a plastic thingy-me-bob to replace the broken one so that the coat bar will get back to the work it's supposed to do!

Today's featured card is one that they're doing at Ann's July Clubs.  It's done with some punches & the new Stampin' Up! Elegant Bouquet Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  It works just like the Manhattan Flower one.  That's Ann's new Once Upon a Time stamp set.  Nice & impressive wedding or shower card.

      Chow, Baby!
July 15 2009 It's getting crazy around here!  They finished my back yard.  Now I just have to tell Ann where to put the furniture.  Doodles was so excited to hear about my improved living conditions that she packed her bag right away!

I'm SURE she's pretty serious about me now that we have matching bags!

Here's the cool card they did last night at Stamp Club. 


Ann showed them a special way to put that box on through the hole with just 5" of ribbon. 

This is made with the new Stampin' Up! IN Colors Bermuda Bay & Soft Suede that you can get in Ann's IN LIVING COLOR Club.  Find out more here.

For me, it's that jumbo grommet that I love.

P.S. to newsletter readers, here is the correct link to the Decor Elements.
July 14 2009 Before I share some reality, I've got to share a card that was sent to me (& Ann) by Jackie Fraser of Florida.  Isn't it PURDY?  When I grow up, I want to stamp like that!  She used the new Stampin' Up! Oval All set with the Big Shot Texturz Folders. 

PSST!  You can still get the custom kit featured in the July 11th post.  Just can't get the Big Shot Doctors Bag at that low price.

We've been busy around here.  My personal crew is improving my back yard.  I need more shade to entertain my stampin' friends.  I'll be posting before, during & after pictures to Facebook so be sure that you've become a fan of mine to see how this year's Rubbah Garage Sale is going to be in a much nicer place.  

I'm turning Ann into my Food Goddess.  She thinks she training me, but it's a subversive plot.  She carries my food in her pocket and every now & then calls me to come or do practice a trick.  I eat all day long & it's hand delivered!  AND I've taught Ann a new trick!

July 10 2009 They're working in my yard today.  Ann says that I've been working very hard these past 3-1/2 years so she's going to make some improvements for me.  I deserve a little pampering & these changes are WAY overdue!

It's not going to be done until next week.  Hope they don't leave any nails in the lawn! 

I hope you enjoy Sandy's Swap Card from the 24/7 Stampers New Catalog Swap.  I think I should get this set & send them to my favorite stampers.  I love how it says "Happy Birthday, Human!"  That's grrrr8!

We've got so much new Stampin' Up! stuff to share with you, you should be sure that you're on Ann's newsletter list!  Free project instructions every month!  Special stuff just for you that doesn't always make it to my blog!

July 9 2009 Did you enjoy your Numbers Day yesterday?  I only told you about two times, but there was one HUGE one right after Noon!  12:34:56 on 07/08/09.  MAN!  I was feeling great about that time!

Kim stopped by to pick up her Big Shot the other day and was amazed at how big the bag was so I figured that I'd model it for you as only your Stamper Dog can.  I'm sitting in this picture.  And here's a side view below.  Just click either picture for a larger view of me OR the bag.  (I'm about 10" at the shoulders)





Do you remember this card?  I sent Ann back to the stamp table to improve it & she did her homework here.  Gotta love those punches & Designer Series Paper!  All she did was stamp the background & it mad all the difference!  Compare with the original card here.

Now that you've had a minute to think about that bag, just know that the mom of my girlfriend Doodles has one & is thinking about ANOTHER one!  Maybe Ann could ship me down to Texas in it so I could surprise her.

It even has the Stampin' Up! name on the side so I don't get lost!

In the meantime, you can get one at a SPECIAL ONLINE PRICE HERE or email Ann & she'll give it to you direct.

July 8 2009 Did you feel it?  The numbers aligned this morning at 4:05am!  At precisely 4:05 & 6 seconds, the time & date aligned to 4:05:06 on 07/08/09!  And tonight they're going to align again at 10:11pm!  On 07/08/09 at precisely 10:11:12pm they'll align again!  I wonder what that means in dog years?

You stampers are just loving these quilt cards so Ann & I have been working on an easier way to do them.  We think that we've figured it out with this one & will go into production soon.

There are only TWO slots left for the Sweet Treat Paper Share shown up top so you can make cool cards like this. 

In case you were wondering, the paper file that you'll receive allows you to make folders out of copy paper like the ones shown on the left - only better because they'll have the coordinating colors printed on it.  Just print, fold & staple & you'll have all your samples organized!

We're cutting & mailing today & tomorrow.  Are you on the list?  You should be!

July 6 2009 YOWZAH!  Stampin' Up! is offering one Barkifully cool special today!  You can get the Sizzix Doctor's Bag for almost 30% off!  How cool is that?  (still available but not at the discounted price)

You don't have to own a Big Shot to use this bag!  It's a great craft bag & possible dog carrier!  I could fit in this thing.  Just don't zip me all the way in so I can breathe!  I could get a good look at the world from this vantage point.

Mix & match it with the great Sweet Treat shares that are at the top of the page.

Here's Karen's swap from the 24/7 Stampers Shoebox Swap.

You can get in on the next one when you join our team

July 3 2009 Intruder alert!  I think I've seen this bird in my back yard!  Then Kristine made this card for it for the 24/7 Stampers swap!  It's using the Stampin' Up! hostess set Wings of Friendship

It's using all those new cool IN colors.  I've advised Ann to start a club so that you can all get them AND hostess shopping rewards too!  How cool is that?  We're calling it the IN LIVING COLOR Club.

Each month you get a pack of cardstock, a marker, a full sized Classic Ink Pad & an ink refill for one of the IN Colors.  The next month you get it for another one of the IN Colors.  By December, you have them all AND $15 in Hostess Benefits AND a FREE Level 1 Stamp set!  All for just $29.95 a month!

Best of all you get to take advantage of the SNAIL refill special that Ann only offers to her Stamp Club members.  Get all the information & decide to sign up here.

July 2 2009 What a day yesterday!  I made a new friend.  I helped Ann pick out new stuff from the new catalog.  Gotta love that!  Here's a cool project that one of the 24/7 Stampers did for their swap!  Lyn did such a good job with the new Stampin' Up! Autumn Days set! 

That bird looks cute enough to kiss!

We'll be taking the retired sets out of the Art Gallery soon.  If there's a special project that you want to print, I'd look now for very soon it may not be there.  You'll notice that the disappearing sets are marked with a lighter color.

Love that Big Shot Scallop Circle on there!  Ann's going to be giving away a free Big Shot soon so stay tuned or sign up for the newsletter to get all the deets even quicker!

Happy Stampin' Up! New Year! 

  We had such a good time yesterday!  I broke in a new door girl to let me in & out while the stampers were stamping.  She was so accommodating! 

We ended the old catalog by giving away a $100 shopping spree!  Always like to do that!  Check out who won!  Is it you?  You get your name on for every $50 you spend.  It's even easier than winning the California Lottery (Ann's way of supporting schools for years).

  Got the Sweet Treats up at the top until I find another home for them.  There's LOTS of new stuff coming up including a special for this week only for the Stampin' Up! Scallop Edge Punch #112091.  It's normally $15.95, but only $10.99 when you order by July 5th.  Gotta have it!
