We Interrupt This Blog Post for a Special Presentation

Yup- The men have sabotaged Glenda’s blog. While she and every other Stampin’ UP! Demonstrator is in Sunny Florida, we figured now is the time to make our move. Dean and I decided to show you guys some REAL Stampin’ Up! Techniques- something fresh. First of all, it’s always women doing this stuff- let’s just see what the guys have to offer.

Glenda has been focusing in on this Crinkled Chalk Ink Technique all week. We figured we better stay within the boundaries, but with our own ideas. Because we run the camera, we’re privi’ed to all of the details and now we’re going to add our own twist. She didn’t think we were watching, but we were taking our own notes, planning our attack. Ok, I’ll admit, we make a few mistakes, but it’s our first time! Besides, I think we recover from our mistakes pretty well!  Don’t worry, Glenda will be back tomorrow with another video, but let’s just take a bit of a detour today and see what we can do with this stuff.

Dean is our 15 year old son. It was not easy getting him to guest host in this special production. After heavy negotiation with his agents and making special arrangements with the actors guild, we have Dean for one day and one day only. He’s put together a very special presentation for you today featuring a Valentine’s Day card. Don’t tell the demonstrators, let them figure this stuff out for themselves- this is between you and us.

Above all- share this video. I’m sure Glenda doesn’t think we can generate any sales. But, I’m telling her if we get a few bites, we’ll be back- bigger and better! We might even start our own channel! If not, well….we’ll go back to our day jobs. If you would be so kind and just place an order for some tape, glue or paper clips- please use this hostess code:PHRMCXHK
share this video with all of your friends! Like it on Facebook! I want her to be surprised when she logs in later today. We want to get a Bzillion views!!!!! Thank you for your support.

The Boys are Back in Town!

    This was the best video ever!!! I couldn’t sleep so checked my email and got this wonderful treat. Glenda is very lucky to have you guys. If I wasn’t a demonstrator myself, I would definitely order from you guys. Thanks for the smiles. 🙂

    Glenda, watch over your shoulder – you have competition! The guys were awesome to do this video! I couldn’t stop smiling! They were prepared with all of the card stock already cut and gave the measurements of each piece. The hilarity moved in with the Fase Fuse – it was there I stopped smiling and broke into out loud laughter! Reminded me of my first try with Fase Fuse! Guys, it was great! Started my day off with a smile and a great attitude. Thanks!

    I know that was painful for Dean because he had to be “encouraged” to do it, but it was wonderfully entertaining. Thanks for your efforts. Glenda is lucky to have you both! I bet she will be proud you did the video and will get a few laughs as she views it.
