New Product - Talking Tags

With Talking Tag, you can send a gift that is uniquely you. Talking Tag is a message label you can attach to cards, invitations, gifts . . . anything! Personalize birthday cards, Christmas gifts or even record quick instructions for a project. Now your pictures really can say a thousand words!
How to send a voice message:
  1. Download the FREE TalkingTagT App on you smartphone from, iTunes® or Google PlayT.
  2. Adhere the message tag to your card or gift.
  3. Open TalkingTagT App and scan the code.
  4. Record your message (recording starts immediately, so make sure your ready!).
You will have the opportunity to listen, re-record, cancel, or confirm your message after you've completed recording it. Each label allows up to 60 seconds of a greeting, song, or product message.
To play the message, recipients will need to download the app and scan the code.  Messages are saved for two years, so they can listen to it over and over.
What will they think of next!  I can see my teenage son using these with his friends.  What a great gift for those tech savvy young people that love the newest gadgets!

Bear in winter.  My camera wouldn't capture the details on this card. Sorry for the poor quality. It's a shaker card & the sign to the left of the candy says "Don't feed the bears 'til Dec. 25"

SU Regional in Lansing was today, November 10th.

Wow, oh wow!!! What an awesome day at the regional. The place was packed (almost 900 people.) There were give-a-ways, make-n-takes, sneak peeks, tons of card ideas, card swaps, and FUN! I came home with a scrapbook page, a set of cards, a 3-D project, a brand NEW stamp set and package of Designer Series Paper. Cool day, can't wait to do it again.
