Teresa Collins Stampmaker Training Session

Sunday was a very full day.  I arrived in good time for the training sessions on the Teresa Collins Stampmaker.   If you would like to see a few highlights of the things I learned, I have written a brief summary in my post on the Scrappy-go-Lucky blog HERE.  I'll be finding out and sharing more information about this amazing machine which will definitely change your crafting life!

Show registration was not at all crowded today - that will change tomorrow!  I am always impressed at all of the logistics that go into putting on a show like this.

Despite the heat, I thought it would be nice to walk the short distance to my hotel after being in an interior room all day.  If I had known that the sidewalk was gone and I'd be pulling suitcases through this construction, I'd have given up and taken the shuttle!

My hotel room has the neatest alarm clock - and I have it set to make sure that I don't oversleep and miss my first class tomorrow morning - Tim Holtz will be there!

At the top of this post you can see yet another way to use this machine.  Apparently jewelry making is a fast growing segment of the market for this awesome machine.

Please post any questions you may have about the Stampmaker and I'll do my best to get answers here at CHA.

  1. Can't wait for you to show us what you learn and see. Hope you have fun at CHA. That is a pretty cool alarm clock, too!

  2. I'm really excited about this much to learn!

  3. I've watched how amazing the machine is on Above Rubies Studio. I can hardly wait for you to get it and put your artistic hand to work. No one can come up with projects like you can.

  4. AGH! i missed tim again! :_(
    hope you have a wonderful time, and like last year, hope you'll show us the new toys coming out. wish i'd planned on going. but i 'will' be at the circle meet up in kings island on the 22nd. provocraft will be giving us our first peeks at the new cha items.

  5. LOVE the retro alarm clock. AND it looks like you can set it without haveing to have an engineering degree~ I'm never quite sure that I have the alarm set at most hotels. Enjoy the show and learn lots~

  6. I can hardly wait to see what you'll bring back to share with us!!!

  7. Looks like your having fun - keep the ideas coming!

  8. The clock looks similar to one I have from LL Bean. They come in some fun colors too.

    Have fun!


  9. Hi Diane,
    Need your help w/CDS please. After I open CDS I can't use half of the Shape Properties. I have tried to make the screen smaller but to no avail. Do you have any suggestions?
    Thanks so much,
