Save 15% on Butterfly Bundles!


The Butterfly Basics Photopolymer Bundle #138865 is $41.50 (top image). The Butterfly Basics Photopolymer Stamp Set is filled with a mix of organic images, backgrounds, and sentiments. Perfect for anything your creativity can think of. It has 11 photopolymer stamps (I suggest clear blocks (sold separately): a, b, c, d, e, i if you don't already have them). And you get the Butterflies Thinlits Dies so you can cut butterflies in record time with the Big Shot. Thinlits Dies help you create detailed die-cuts with just a few turns of the Big Shot handle. This set includes 3 dies, the largest being 4-3/8" x 3-1/2".

The other butterfly bundle (bottom image) is the Watercolor Wings Photopolymer Bundle #140232 for $36.50. StampinUp! made classic butterflies even better by putting them in a Two-Step Stampin' set. Two-step sets have a base image and overlay images that you can combine over the base image. Use the colors and images you want to create the butterflies you want. This bundle has 15 photopolymer stamps (suggested clear blocks -sold separately- a, d, e, g) and the Bold Butterfly Framelits Dies... the large butterfly has an open design that allows you to place it where you want for precise cutting. The smaller butterfly is delicately detailed and includes ejection holes so you can remove the paper easily. Contains 2 dies: * Large butterfly, 3-1/8" x 2-1/8"; small butterfly, 2" x 1-3/8".

And the best news ever? The 2 sets coordinate with each other!! You can order these right off my online store http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/chaotickristi/ or contact me directly.

never say die....

THIS song has been in my head for last several days... wow...1984? So... off the rest of this week...about freakin' time. Working 9 weekends in a row was getting really old.... today I have gotten glasses fixed, mowed front & back yard, recovered from mild heat stroke, joined a gym, dealt with 401k & stock plans for work... have not gotten around to lunch yet so that is nxt on my list. Had protein shake for breakfast so getting kinda hungry. Tomorrow is appt with Todd from Window King, art tutorial created for Friday's class, making June birthday cards & a father's day card, pen pal letters written, oil change...and on & on. My Friday is filled already, as is Saturday, with FUN non-work related events!

break me down....

Once upon a time I would blog everyday and the title would be the song lyrics that was playing in my head when I awoke. That was back when I worked a desk job and sat at a computer all day long. These days I work in the medical field in a clinic setting and I do not sit, much less at a computer. But I am awake waiting on the coffee to finish brewing and thought I would take a minute to post. The work situation is the same.... still no weekends off in sight...am on my fifth weekend in a row and 2 more to go. I work 4 days next week. And so I woke up with this playing in my head: You can break me down if it takes all your might 'cause I'm so much more than meets the eye. the song is "Breakdown" by Seether.

It's been 18 days since my last post... maybe if I just get up (on the days I DON'T work) and do this I will post a little more often. We'll see. Here is a picture from our Hot Springs trip. Right now, a shower and then choir practice & church....off I go.
