Tips and Tricks For the Precision Base Plate Video

Did you attend my Open House this past weekend?  We had some issues with the Big Shot, and so I went to Stampin' Up! for some direction! They sent several suggestions, all of which we were doing, but they also sent a link to this video, which I found very helpful. 
Take a look and see some ways we can avoid the problems we had this weekend, and then leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks! 

If you have any questions about the video or the Big Shot Precision Base Plate, feel free to contact me. 


Craft Your Christmas Retreat


Third Annual Ruthless Stamping
"Craft Your Christmas" Retreat    

October 7,8,9, 2016
Doubletree by Hilton Hotel
Santa Ana, California 

Welcome to the third annual Ruthless Stamping Retreat! 

I am so excited to present this to you! 

Does the thought of getting away for a weekend with other women while you stamp and craft to get ready for the Christmas holidays sound wonderful to you?

Then come away with Ruthless Stamping on our third annual
"Craft your Christmas" retreat!

You'll be relaxing in a lovely setting while having your meals deliciously prepared and served for you!  You'll make new friends!  And then you'll go home with wonderful completed paper crafting projects that will help you celebrate Christmas while reducing the stress! 

Come and join me at this "Craft Your Christmas" event! There will be great door prizes for all, fun and inspiring WOW demonstrations, and lots of fun surprises!  

You are going to love our venue!  The location is great, because you'll feel like you really got away, and yet you won't spend hours on the freeway on Friday night! You'll be pleased with the meals and their presentation.  You'll be excited about the lovely and clean rooms, the exercise room, the pool, the pond, our meeting room, and the great customer service in the hotel. 



All your projects will be prepared for you, so you can come and learn techniques and assemble your projects without the delay of doing your own measuring and cutting. You'll be pleased with the variety and creativity of all the projects. 
Please note: None of the projects will be repeated in any other Ruthless Stamping event.  These are EXCLUSIVE to this retreat!
