JAI#391 Using all 3 and a cool new stamp positioning tool!!!

This week at JAI the challenge is to 

I was lucky enough to be one of the demonstrators selected to be on the development panel for Stampin' Up!'s new Stamp Positioning Tool- the STAMPARUTUS. It was a very long process but I think definitely worth the wait.
But we had to wait until the Onstage Event to see it just like everyone else.

One of the perks of being on that panel was a guaranteed early delivery and mine arrive today- so after a speedy dinner of leftovers I have had a little play and I have to say it's FABULOUS.
Having only seen the videos which SU have put together it was really wonderful to actually get the feel for it and how easy it is to use. It is a beautiful quality product just as you'd expect. It will be a regular product from the middle of 2018 when the new Annual Catalogue is released.

So it was super fast to whip up these 4 (Identical- Yay) cards tonight.
I used all 3 elements - the tree from Sheltering Tree, the tiny tag uses Teeny Tiny Sentiments and a very old but much loved tag punch, ( but you could easily use the word window punch and flag the ends which was what I had originally planned) and I attached the tags in 2 options -2 with regular twine and 2 with plum twine.

It's a shame I have to go to work tomorrow because I'd really like to just sit and play with my new toy!

I hope you have a creative week and remember, 
"don't just post online,
 post something pretty!"

cheers, Liz
