Quick Post!

Hello Everybody!

First, let me say thank you for all the amazing compliments and comments you left here, Facebook and on the Graphic 45 Blog!  I'm so glad you liked the Ladies Diary Roll Top.  For some of you I think you saw it twice!  Bless you for allowing me to post it again on my new blog!

Wasn't Nicole Eccles Shoe AMAZING on the G45 blog?  Oh my gosh that girl has got an amazing imagination and talent that goes with it!  WOW! WOW!  WOW! 

Ok, I didn't come over to shoot the breeze because I'm late for a very important date...I wanted to share a video I did a few hours ago that answers a couple of questions I had about a piece I used on Carol's Caddy.  Also, the video shows the We R Memory Keepers Lucky 8 Punches in action.  Last, I also shared a new and really cool trimmer I saw at Archiver's tonight.  It's a really cool option to the fairly expensive Rotatrim I use.  And It works!  I tested in on chipboard!  It's the Fiskars Procision Paper Trimmer.  INCREDIBLE!  I believe that's the way they spelled it on the box.  When I google it I don't see it listed.  Once again, they have it at Archiver's.

Here's the video ....



Thanks Again Y'all! Have an AWESOME night!

  3. Hi Jim, You need to start taking better care of yourself. You don't look yourself in your video. Of course this is completely selfish you understand ;-) I'd much rather have less inspirational posts than none. Now schedule some self care time / relaxation time it's important.

    1. Disco,

  4. OK...I has signed up for your blog by email and haven't gotten a single one. Only YouTube videos. They do remind me to come check out your blog. I signed up again so maybe I will get them now.

    I have to say I have 8 of these Lucky 8 punches and expecting 2 more for a total of 10 of them. They have the mini ones too, that punch 6x6 paper. I need those. LOL These big one are huge, so storing them is a problem if you are cramped for space. You did remind me that I need to look them up and make name labels for them.

    I so need to rearrange my craft room. Wish I had the time to unmount my wooden stamps too. They take up so much space, I would gain half a cabinet if I could unmount them. I work at it a few sets at the time.

    Love all your projects. One day I will have the time to get into more detailed projects. School does start next week. I just buy tutorials and wait for the right day to come. Thanks for sharing you talent!!! Love Ya!

  6. YOU went to Archivers last night and did not call me? Shame on you. I think you are avoiding me! But maybe a good thing... you might enable me to spend money that I need to spend on baseboards for the house! Can't wait to see the next big thing!

  9. I was missing you so I took some time for my Jim fix. I will have a lot to go back and see after summer is over. Busy busy busy. Thanks for sharing, so enjoy your "real person" videos! I love these punches, but where does a person store those honkers! Maybe if I get rid of my oldy moldy original little red Sizzix machine I could store 4????? Hmmmm something to ponder while doing deep cleaning for company. Why do we wait for company to do deep cleaning, do they really notice? Just practicing avoidance. :)

    1. Lori,

      I wondered whether you started the, "I Hate Jim Fanclub! I missed ya lamb chop!

      Hope all is well and hope you get your deep cleaning done!

    2. Shame on you for putting "hate" and "Jim" in the same sentence. You are like a little puppy, how could anyone hate you. Did one thing on the deep cleaning list today. 15 more to go and only a week. Hey, I am 50 and I don't have to do anything I don't want to this year! Turning 50 is fun!

    1. Hey Barb!

      Archiver's really didn't have anything left. No, it's not because I cleaned them out. I knew that was going to be the next thing you would say! LOL! They have a couple of green punches in the large. Towards the front. No small ones yet. Obviously I need to watch HSN more. They had them. Man, I've got to find my TV clicker so I can change channels to keep up!

      Hugs my friend!

  15. Hey Jim, I watched the video on YT. But I just had to say hi again! We don't have Archivers here. We've only had Mikes and AC Moore. But we're supposed to open a couple of JoAnns by the end of the year! I'm excited!
    Thanks again for the tutorial. Hugs, Jess

    1. Oh Sherry! You are going to like it! I think it's a winner. It's easy on your hands and cuts with clout!

      Buy it from a place you can take it back just in case it's not a fit for you.

      Thanks Sherry!

  17. Hey Jimbug.....thanks for the info on the Fiskers cutter..can a coupon be used with that???? ...since there is no archivers here in so. cal, I was just wondering...LOL....
    I saw those punches on HSN selling them in grps of three..I didn't buy them b/c like you said they are big and I DON"T scrapbook either....

    1. Card,

      You know, I don't know why you couldn't use a coupon on it. In fact there was an Archiver's 43% off sale coupon on one item through the 12th! I haven't read the fine print though.

  18. Love these punches. They are a little pricey, but since they do several things, it is worth it. I consider my punches, investments since they are tools L will use over and over. I need to get down to the Crafty Scrapper and see what she has. I believe this week most things are on sale at 50% off. Thanks for all you do, Jim!

  19. You need to find your TV clicker? Isn't it in your Carol's Caddy where it should live now?!
    Those punches look interesting - the round one would make lovely doilies for my Wedding afternoon tea! They are huge though and I am struggling to fit anything else into my tiny craftroom (including me now) LOL!
