Denise, thanks for the RAK

Hi everyone,

Denise (aka Tinkercrafts) came in on Friday to the store, but I missed her as I sent to my daughter's soccer game at Mililani HS.  I was so bummed to have missed Denise and she left me the most gorgeous RAK ever.  This is my absolute first RAK received and it sure is beautiful.  THANK YOU Denise to much.  Your talent is super.  Enjoy the pics friends.

Make n Take 12-19-09/Hero Arts Party

Hi all,

The Hero Arts Party didn't really happen since I did not get the make n take stuff in time, but we had fun anyway.  This is the Make n take that we did today.  It was a lot of fun, easy to do, and we had fun using the distress pads from Ranger and using Hero Arts stamps to decorate it.  Here are the measurements.

Outside DP (designer paper) is 3-3/4 x 11-5/8.  Score using Scor-Pal (get it at the store, it is a must have tool) at the following:  1", 6 and a dot, scooch that score line to 7 and a triangle and score at 7-1/2.  Hope this makes sense. 

CS (cardstock) measurement on outside mat is 3-1/4 x 4-1/8.  Top mat is 3 x 3-7/8.
CS (cardstock) on inside is 3-1/2 x 5-1/4.

Staple bottom of matchbook flap using Tim Holtz's tiny stapler.

Enjoy, and here are some pictures.

Design Team Last Call

Hi everyone.  This is last call for my design team.  I have changed the requirements a little as it seems like some of the gals do not want to demo.  I would love to have card samples made for the store and I could compensate the DT for that.  Please mail in your samples to the store at the address above.  I will make my final decision by 1/15/10.  I am leaving this open until the end of the year.  The DT will get compensated by getting a discount at the store, up to a certain amount per month.

Thanks and I can't wait to see your wonderful creations.

This Wednesday

I will not be at the store, but my DS Eric will be there holding down the fort.  I need to do some Christmas shopping of my own and will be busy shopping.  I should be back in the late afternoon. 

Tilda Card my DD made

Lauren made this card for her Secret Santa swap for her varsity soccer team.  I hope the recipient likes it.  I really like the colors she used.  I also like that she used ribbon for Tilda's pigtails.

Hope you like it.  Cyn

Die-cut favors

I made these boxes and stamped a cute little duckie (Greeting Farm) for a friend of mine who needed it for a baby shower.  She knew it was going to be a boy so it was easy to decorate.  Die-cutting services are free if paper is purchased at the store.  These came out so cute.

Thanks for looking and see you soon.

More new stuff

Ribbons in dots, gingham, double loops, and more have just come in.

New name, new look

Hi everyone,

Had the hardest time with my name.  Someone told me that I couldn't have the word "Stampin" in my store name as a big stamp conglomerate owns that word so I changed my store name back to my old name MunchKins.  Since I did that I had to change my blog name and when I did that I lost everything and long story short, this is my new blog.  I also have a website and it is www.  In the future that website and my blog will be linked so you can see both.  Until then, please enjoy my blog and hope to see you soon.

All images copyrighted by Cyn at MunchKins.

12/20, Sunday, 2 to 4 pm, Easel Card.  Make the card and after you give it away to your BFF or someone else special, it will stand up by itself.  Cost is $15 + tax.  Same as above.  Sample is finised and at the store.

Blog Makeover

Hi all,

My blog can't make up it's mind about how it should look. It has changed it's look at least a dozen times in the past few days. I hope you like what it is at the moment. At least I figured out how to make my own banner, now if I could make my own page, that would make me real happy. My next project.

I'm Back

This is not stamp related, but I have just come back from my daughter's soccer team trip. They won the State Cup for their age group (U15) and we are so proud of them. They did well at Regionals, which was held at Lancaster, CA. Boy, I am tired, we were there from 6/14 to 6/23.

Anyhow, just a short post totally not related to stamping. I sure do miss stamping. I have another soccer related trip from 6/28 to 7/4...
