Cool Quick question for anyone who can help me!!!!!!!

Hello Ladies,

I am so very excited right now because I received my order today. I will be busy these next couple of days cutting and mounting all my sets. I am definitely starting with my valentine ones because I am very anal about being last minute with my projects and I'm sure my hands will be sore from this cutting job.

Anyway, are there any SU demos anywhere in my IL area-Bourbonnais, Tinley Park, Orland Park, Joliet area? There are a few other things that I need to order and have before the 14th of Feb and my SU demo is on vacation right now. If anybody can help me please contact [email protected]. I would like to place my order on next friday the 27th. Thanx in advance.

Jackie

Smile A lot of rubber!!!

You have no idea. I absolutely love getting my order and just looking through everything. It's like Christmas all over again. Then reality hits, I have to assemble these things. That process alone is what has kept me from ordering an alphabet set. Is it really time consuming to assemble those or is it easier than the quotes and shapes? Will someone give me a very honest opinion about that? Also with the double alpha sets, are those simple or hard? I'm asking because I ordered the Everyday Flexible Phrases set not realizing that it was a double set and I'm just a little terrified here. I have 17 sets to assemble and before I get to that one I would really like to know. I don't want it to just sit in the corner collecting dust either so ADVICE PLEASE!!

Jackie

On the alphabet set, I am not the type that needs the "whole set" put together. I mount each letter as needed. Therefore no blisters!!

I'm with Leslie on mounting the alphabets. I typically mount them as I need them. The Everyday Flexible Phrases are probably the hardest set to mount. You wont want to do that in one sitting. I usually do this kind of mounting in front of the tv so I feel like I'm getting something accomplished. LOL! A tip I received from here was to photo copy one of the sticker sheets from your Everyday Flexible Phrases and write in the word you have mounted on the other side of the wood block. That way it's much easier to find them when you need a certain word.

Good luck and have fun with all of your new goodies!

Jackie,
When I mounted my phrases, I did them alphabetically, two per block. Makes it sooo easy to find what I'm looking for. Also, do a search here on SCS - over the past year or so, people have posted lists of all the combinations you can make with the "flexible phrase" sets.

If you need to find a demonstrator in your area, go to the Stampin Up website

www.stampinup.com

and hit the link for "Find a US demonstrator" and you will probably find 5 demonstrators that live within 1-4 miles of your home.

I always dread the alpha sets too...but I do scrapbooking and usually need them, so I just bite the bullet and get them all done at once. Usually, I will mount my sets while watching TV too...it tends to take your mind off of it and before you know it...you got it done. I mounted 8 sets during the 24 season premier on Sunday...That made me feel like I had really accomplished something...so now all of my sets are mounted...well at least until my next order comes in.

In answer to your question about mounting alphabet sets, some are more difficult than others to mount. I think that generally speaking the smaller the alpha set, the more difficult to mount. Just take one letter at a time to mount and keep them in order. I have sometimes mounted the "b" and "d" incorrectly. Or a "c" or "e" could easily be mounted upside down. Mark a letter with a black gel pen to indicate the top of the letter to avoid mounting upside down.
