Cool new Social Media Product!

Hello there stampers… Happy Friday! I wanted to take a quick moment to post this cool new video from Stampin’ Up featuring “Talking Tags.” This is a new product being offered by Stampin’ Up. You get 10 tags per sheet and you can insert them in your cards or other hand crafted items and be able to include a recorded message from you to your recipient! How cool is that? Watch this video to see how these cool new tags work. Then run on over to my website and enter item #129723 into the online store to get your own!

But you need to hurry on this special as it is only while supplies last and there are only 4,000 available in this “test run.” Ok… that’s all for now, but I’ll be back later today with a
