In October 2012, Sandi MacIver and I started a new venture together, Stamping and Blogging. We are both passionate about what we love and wanted to come together to bring you the best of both worlds in one, premiere, international site.
Sandi and I had a goal of where we wanted to be after one year of running Stamping and Blogging, it was 200 videos. Well, we hit that this month!!!
We have both been working really hard to provide top quality video content in our site. Step by step instructions through each project whether it is learning a stamping technique or how to build a blog.
Here are some fun Facts.
Techniques and Classes
We are 100% Stampin UP and we plan to stay that way!
We teach a technique each week. There are 5 samples for this one where we painted an acrylic handle to create some awesome backgrounds for our stamping.
We have 9 full classes in there now, so you can work you way through each project or if you are a demonstrator, you can use the entire thing for a class.
Our Weekly Sketch Challenges are in full swing, they happen on Sundays. We give you the sketch and the basic instructions, I also does a full card and tutorial of my take on the sketch each week.
Our Gallery is filed by stamp set name and we link our videos and tutorials under the photo of each sample so you will have no problem finding them. So just think, all you have to do is sign in, you don't have to save anything in your computer and try and find it later, you don't lose anything if your computer crashes - it's all in one place, and there is new content added each week.

Sidebar Buttons for Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Blogs, and we now have a Chat feature!
On the Blogging side, I set up a whole page on "How to set up a Blog", each category has a title, and as I finish the video lesson, I like to it to it is easy and fast to get to what you need most.
