NEW Video for the Varied Vases Bundle!

As I promised on yesterday’s post here, I put together a video for the projects and tips I shared in my Las Vegas presentation for the Varied Vases Photopolymer Stamp Set (2-step double stamp set) and Vases Builder Punch. 

These products and the 10% off bundle (when you by them together) are available June 1 when the 2018 Annual Catalog begins.

Here’s the “magic board” I explained in the video.  It represents additional ways to use the Varied Vases stamp set and Vases Builder Punch.  I have seen so many creative ideas by others using these products from pineapples, to ice cream scoops (upside down tulip), to fish bowl and little fish, to onions and many other fun veggies!  Amazing possibilities.

Stampin’ Up! and I collaborated on the design of the Varied Vases Photopolymer stamp set and coordinating Vases Builder Punch as part of my recognition for reaching $1 million in sales last year.  I love the modern simplicity of the design.  Learn more here.
