Creativation! Here’s the Scoop!


All the signs led me last weekend to Creativation — the Craft and Hobby Association’s big show of all that’s crafty.

During the next few weeks I’ll be sharing what I found (in no particular order). There is much to share — including some trends — so let’s get started.

My first happy find is called Animated Clear Stamps from Uchi’s Designs. Yes, you can stamp cards with images that seem to move!


I think you can see in the above the photo how the stamped images seem to move when you pull on the plastic overlay. This is called lenticulated action.

Here’s another one:

Thanks for tuning in!

Terrific Tags!

Oh, how I love making tags! Check out this new set from Stampin’ Up!


The stamp set is called That’s The Tag and the matching dies are called Timeless Tags Thinlets™ (by Sizzix). I highly suggest getting both sets! These tags are addicting … and a great way to use up scraps. Make them for any occasion!

Here are some close-ups:

You can do simple stamping and coloring ….


… easy layering …


… more layering  (there are several word choices)…


… and use up lots of scraps!

Thanks for stopping by.
