Preface by Jim. Pat and I are very frustrated that there have been times when you could not load her website/blog over the past week. The problem does not involve the migration over to HostGator (not going well). GoDaddy’s legacy servers were hit with a major hacking attack and they put the servers into what is called a mitigation status and that shut us down for quite a while. The mitigation process also affected several of our website/blog settings and that further disrupted our service. I think we are back to normal now.
Now to Pat’s latest blog post:
Stampin’ Up! has done it again. They’ve given us the most amazing stamp set & die bundle. I’ve updated my Love of Leaves post as I want to once again tell you that you really do need to own it.
We’ve just now posted a picture of the catalog page, which shows the leaf stamps and their coordinating dies. You really can’t tell from these pictures how beautiful the stitching makes the leaves. But, there are several cards that have been posted here in the past couple of weeks. Please take a close look at the leaves themselves.
If you look closely at the pictures which were posted earlier, you’ll see that the leaves have stitching on them. Each leaf has two dies; one die cuts out the outside of the leaf and the other one fits inside and creates the stitching. You can send them both through your die cutting machine at the same time.
You can either stamp the leaves or cut them out of colored card stock as some of the samples show below show. There’s also a large die that kind of looks like a city skyline that puts stitching on the outside of your card. It is very unique and adds so much. (The second card in the most recent post shows how the skyline-looking die looks on the side of a card. I’ve seen cars, which have that die used on both sides of the card.)
I also want to tell you about the sentiments. They’re such useful ones. Here they are:
I’m so glad you’re in my life
I thought of you today
Your friendship is something I know I can count on
Hope changes everything
You’ll notice in the samples below that we’ve used the Plaid Tidings designer series paper on a lot of the Love of Leaves cards—it’s a really good fit and it’s on sale for the month of October, along with many other designer series paper packs. Most of them have a regular price of $11.50 but with the 15% discount, they’re just $9.78.
If you want to purchase this bundle or anything else during October, please use host code: P7PB9XGR, unless you’re placing a club order or your order is over $150. If it is over $150 and not a club order, please claim the host benefits for yourself.
As always, you can reach me by text or call at 303-888-1862 or call at 303-674-6435.
Thank you so much. I appreciate you every day.
