Hey you sweet Bellas...I'm back!!

Hello my stampy friends!

I am still alive and well so thanks to all of you who have missed me. WOW it was really overwhelming!! It's kind of hard to update your blog when your laptop-less!! Last weekend I attended Scrapfest at Mall of America for two whole days of fun!! I had a blast with my friends. I certainly needed a little cheer so it was great to get out to the mall as I don't get there enough during the year!! It was my fourth year attending but this year I did not work there so I had plenty of time to check out all the exciting companies and see their new products!! It's always a total mob scene but the eye candy is so worth all the pain of standing in long lines and fighting the massive crowds. Let me tell those of you that do not live in MN this mall is HUGE!! This is the first year I did not shop at Archiver's in the mall and let's just say it was a good thing!! My pocketbook thanks me!! I know its hard to believe but we did manage to do a little shopping twice no less in the Archiver's Hot Spot area. I scooped up some super deals on ribbon and of course more bling for my Halloween cards. Its always fun to chat with people from all over the country while waiting in the long lines for the make and takes. I plan to hopefully write more about my Scrapfest experience just as soon as I have a working computer and more time. A big shout out to Cosmo Cricket and Doodlebug! They totally rocked the house or should I say Scrapfest!!

Here's a Stamping Bella card I recently taught at Smudges in Chanhassen, MN. I had a great turnout so thanks to all the great ladies that came to my Sweet Stuff class. I use to teach lots of stamping classes at Smudges and I'm SO happy to be back teaching at this wonderful store!! A lot of my friends and students live in the area and have been asking me to teach there for a long time. Why the heck did I wait SO long???? I hope you can join me soon. If so, please call the store to sign up for my next class Let's Cuttle-bug on Oct. 1 at Smudges. I will be using an assortment of Cuttlebug embossing folders, stamps from Smudges and other fun embellishments including pretty ribbons and papers.

Next subject. A BIG yes to all of you that have noticed I am no longer a part of the A Muse Instructor program. If you would like to know more about this please email me and I will be happy to answer your questions. Thanks for all your emails and phone calls. Life is full of surprises both pleasant and unpleasant. I believe certain things happen for a reason and are truly a blessing in disguise. I will NOT let anyone or any company take the JOY out of my love for stamping and teaching classes. I look forward to teaching with other *new* stamping lines as there are so many wonderful choices nowadays. It will be so great to give my other stamps some much needed love. I will certainly miss my A Muse friends especially Emily after three years of being a part of the A Muse Instructor program. I still plan to make both Halloween ATCs for those of you who have asked me as well as teach a few A Muse classes so no worries. I am finally happy to get this whole subject off my chest and move on. Change is good and I look forward to teaching some new classes! End of subject. :D

Lastly, my laptop is getting shipped off this coming week for repair just as soon as I receive a box. Like previously stated, I did write this post a while back. It has been edited numerous times due to Blogger problems and the fact that my laptop kept crashing. It was all very frustrating and time consuming. I have to go to the library nowadays to use the Internet but today I'm at Dunn Brothers Coffee finally posting this *bad boy* as I wanted to let people know I'm OK. I was going to delete my blog for personal reasons but I have decided to keep it for the time being. I want to thank all my friends and students for their love, friendship, support, and business. Again, I will still be around teaching some new classes so I hope to see some of you really soon!! Big hugs, Tami : )

Frankie sends his love!

I am so happy I could jump up and down right now. Persistance does pay off! Here's Frankie.

I used 2 kinds of fibers from Michaels, colored staples, Tombow markers, assorted. glitter pens, silver gel pen, my new bling...finally someone has come out with orange bling (thanks Hero Arts) and *dull* black circle gems. I edged the orange Bazzil paper layer with black chalk ink. I used yellow glaze pen on SPOOOOKY! Frankie is available from Inky Antics.

Dear's your answer!!

"Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Mrs. Claus says hello!! Buns up (get it?)": Wasn't this posted on your blog earlier this week before you showed the stamps for sale? Posted by Anonymous to It's All in the Details! at Fri Sep 05, 05:26:00 PM"

Answer for Anonymous:

Hi Anonymous.
Yes, as a matter of fact Mrs. Claus was posted earlier this week. Thanks for reminding me. Do you have a problem with the way I update my blog? If so, maybe you shouldn't visit it. I needed to edit a couple recent posts regarding the fall/Halloween stamps I am selling so I moved Mrs. Claus up. I apologize if that bothered you and you felt it necessary to get your *little dig* in Anonymous. Have a nice weekend. For the record, I frequently have problems uploading files to Blogger so that's why I had to go in and edit the posts so people would know the selling price of my stamps. Tami

Mrs. Claus says hello!! Buns up (get it?)

Hello peeps. I made this card because I wanted to live up to my reputation that it really is All in the Details plus I was feeling a little cocky (I hope that's a word). First of all, Mrs. Claus has bling in her bun's bow and I put on her red stud gem earrings. I think I will keep this card for a very special friend that is far away. Oh, I actually dug out my southwestern corner punch and notched the corners. I did put white stickles in each corner but you can't see it. There are gold highlights all over Mrs. Claus. The sweet image is from a new Missy Ballance Christmas clear set. It is available thru A Muse as well as the sweet holiday sentiment and green paper. I colored with Copics. I think she's adorable and her apron is distressed linen. He he. I will be adding lots of classes starting now Sept. I'm just firming up all the details. I'm so excited to begin my fall journey. I have lots of fun things planned including my annual Halloween party. I hope you had a fun weekend. I sure did!! As always, thanks for stopping by my bloggie. Tami

Happy 16th birthday Gino Bambino!

Its so hard to believe my handsome little nephew turned 16. Gino already has his own car but no license yet thank God as I worry about him. Isn't he a little cutie pie? He has a job at Stop and Shop bagging groceries and is a total skateboarder DUDE! I love him to pieces and miss him dearly. I'm not too happy to hear he's already dating. Gino, its hard to believe I watched you come into this world sixteen years ago. Remember now it was me your Auntie T-T that named you. I hope you had a terrific birthday and that you will study hard in school. Be a good boy....Hugs little one. xoxox
No stamping from Wed. I didn't feel like it. I'm looking forward to going out today and taking care of some business. Actually I feel a little sick right now kind of like I swallowed a boulder. Peace. Tami

Halloween & Fall stamps for sale LOT!!

I am selling all these Fall stamps for only $10 plus shipping. I will throw in some little fall leaves in assorted colors. They add a nice touch on your cards. Email me if you want these treasures! I'm going to give this a try and see how it goes.

Edited: This file will not upload so email me if you'd like to see the stamps and I will send you the file. They are NOT A Muse. The lot includes: Hero Arts, Magenta, Inky Antics, Printworks, and a few other companies. There are a total of 7 stamps plus little leaves and a few yards of ribbon. Such a deal at only $10 plus shipping!!

I have lots of older wood mounted stamps that need a new home. I'm sad to report lots of them have never hit the ink pads. Imagine that???!!! : ] Here's a partial list:

12 Penny Black stamps, 3 Magenta, tons of older DeNami, 3 PSX, Printworks and Annette Allen Watkins, lots of Hero Arts, and a *LOT* of shadow stamps from Hero (special deal for all of them), and Inky Antics (most of them are snowmen). I also have 4 CARD magazine books for sale. Dec. 2006, Jan. thur Mar. 2007. All priced to sell quickly!

This is just a start! It takes so much time to handle the stamps, scan them, price them, etc. All you have to do is contact me and we will go from there. I will send you a picture of them as time permits. I prefer money orders. Here's my first batch. Come on, buyers needed!! I will throw in a few yds. of ribbon. Any takers?? I NEED to move these out of my house and into your hands. Thanks for stopping by and reading this silly post.
