A slight diversion…

I know this is a scrapbooking and stamping blog but we all love a good laugh, right?! I have “Catalog Living” in my Google Reader and look forward to laughing EVERY day! Check out today’s post and then visit the blog for more hilarity!

Gary, we got the desk and Medieval Torture Chair you wanted, so why do you still insist on reading on the floor?  Now, where’s that beige book I came in here for?

I’m Baaaa..ck!

Ahh… we’re finally back up and running online! 🙂 It was a REALLY long summer, but now we’re a bit settled. Things will be changing around here soon enough, but for now I’m happy to have a few scrapbooking and stamping supplies out of storage and internet access to share them!

I added a bunch of items to the Etsy shoppe tonight, so be sure to check them out! http://www.etsy.com/shop/MamaBearStamps

One of my favorite items are these “Hoot Hoot” owl embellishments! I used the Stampin’ UP! “Fox and Friends” owl and layered the punched image on some glittered black cardstock I picked up a few months ago from somewhere (don’t remember where, LOL!) I added some foam tape to the back and now they’re perfect for Halloween cards and scrapbooking layouts!

I hope you have a fabulous week and keep creating! 🙂

A State of Transition

There’s lots of changes going on these days! Our family is moving from our house to another, so I am busy packing up. Unfortunately that means that samples will be few and far between on the blog until we get settled in (possibly in August). But I haven’t disappeared – I’m just buried in boxes. 🙂

Stampin’ UP! is going through a big transition too! At the end of this month the current catalog will be replaced with our NEW 2010-2011 catalog! That means that many items are LAST CHANCE! Click on the link to your right to visit my website and view the exiting products – many at deep discounts! Now is the perfect time to stock up on your favorite stamps, inks, papers and accessories, as they may not be available after June 30. If you have any questions, or wish to place an order directly through me just let me know!

Have a great Thursday and I’ll see you soon!

Goodbye and HELLO!!

I’m very excited to be sharing Stampin’ UP!’s new Color Renovation with you! As of June 1 we will have even MORE fabulous colors in papers, inks, stamp pads, watercolors and more! Because we’ve added so many fabulous colors (trust me, I have sample sheets from the new In Colors – they’re delicious!) we must make room by retiring some colors.
These embellishments were created with one of my favorite retiring colors, Pixie Pink (ink and cardstock – stamp is an old one I had in my stash).

I have added links on the right of this blog to a list of retiring colors and those sticking around. Our stock of retiring colors is GOING FAST! If you love these colors you need to stock up NOW before they’re all gone! Simply click the link to my online shop to the right.

Have a great week!

Simple Birthday Thanks Versitility

I love stamps (obviously! ;)) but I especially love stamps with versitility. I like to use my purchasing power to really get milage out of my supplies. Take for example the “Simple Birthday Thanks” stamp from Stampin’ UP!

Simple Birthday Thanks Stamp Set - by Stampin' Up!

While I love the simple thank-you note on the inside of the cupcake, did you know you could take that out? Before I mounted this stamp I used an Xacto knife to cut out the wording portion (and the wording on the identification sticker). These I mounted separately so I can use just the cupcake, just the wording, or both.

Here is a paper-pieced version of this cupcake in my Mama Bear Stamps Etsy shop right now (I used scraps for this people – YOU can do this!!)

King Kandy, Candyland Collection Embellishment
And here are some examples of this stamp used with Stampin’ UP! supplies:
Cupcake Card Project by Stampin' Up!
Cupcake Thank-You Card Set Project by Stampin' Up!
Thank-You Cupcake Card Project Sample
All these designs (and so much more) can be created with just this ONE stamp! And for only $17.95 it’s a steal!
If you love this Stampin’ UP! stamp (and all the others!) you can earn it FREE just by inviting your friends over and stamping with me and the gang! Contact me today to set up a workshop in your home or mine and enjoy all the fun, creativity, and FREE products Stampin’ UP! has to offer!
Want even more fun? Visit the “Join My Team” tab at the top of my blog. Demonstrators receive FREE stamps and supplies, free catalogs, everything you need to share the joy of stamping with those you love. Plus, receive extra goodies throughout the year from me and our big SU! team! 🙂
Have a great and creative week everyone!

Quickie

Just a quickie to link to another blog I love! 🙂 Jennifer McGuire has a post on her blog today using all Stampin’ UP! stamps! Who doesn’t love Jennifer?! Her work inspired me to start stamping a few years ago and I haven’t looked back! 🙂

Check out her blog post here and let me know which new product you’re most excited about in the NEW Summer Mini Catalog. There just MIGHT be a bit of blog candy for one random comment… 😉

My new obsession

I love blogs. I mean, I REALLY love blogs. It’s like reading a little non-fiction book right on my screen, any time. I love serious business blogs, financial blogs, cooking blogs (even though I can’t cook!), decorating blogs and of course, crafting blogs. Google Reader is my new obsession! Now I can read all my favorite blogs in one place. I also have Google Alerts set up for some topics and I can read those here too. FAB.U.LOUS!

I wanted to pass along a neat project idea I found today during my blog reading. Hop over there to read the full directions. I hope you have a great day!

Howdy!

I'm Tammy Moore, a scrapbooking fanatic in Austin, TX. Thanks for stopping by my little space on the web. Feel free to contact me any time!

Why “Mama Bear Stamps”?

A few years ago my daughter and husband gave me the nickname "Mama Bear" and I've used it ever since! This year I even conqured my fear of needles and had the Chinese symbols of mother and bear tattooed above my right ankle. When I started this blog, I knew I wanted to go by my nickname: Mama Bear. But you can call me Tammy if you'd like. :)
