25 Years of..... Stampin' Up!

That's right, 2013 marks 25 years that Stampin'  Up! has been our stamp company. While I haven't been a demo all that time or have even stamped all that time I have seen a lot of what they have had along the way. To help celebrate, Stampin' Up! is offering a Best of.... Collection each month. They're bringing back 2-5 favorite images along with 1 never before seen image in each set. Sets are $14.95 (USA) each. They are available in clear mount only. Along with each set, you'll also get a proof of purchase sticker. Collect 6 of these and get 1 free set up to $14.95 value for free. Free sets must be redeemed no later than April 30, 2014. A different themed set will be offered each month. So you have a chance to get them all, they will all be offered until March 31,2014. 

January's Set
Best of Birthdays

Best Of Birthdays Clear-Mount Stamp Set

I'm excited for this set. I always need a new stamp for birthday cards. I like to mix them up so that I don't feel like I'm sending the same birthday cards all the time. 

February's Set
Best of Love

Best Of Love Stamp Set

I've heard some people say that it's late for the love stamps. It may arrive late for Valentine's but you can tell people you love them all year long and then you'll have these for next Valentine's Day.

You'll find both of these sets and lots more on my website. You can purchase them at all hours of the day or night. If you have questions, just ask. I will do my best to get back to you quickly. Even if I have to respond the next day because you had the question at 2 am. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Valentine's Class

We had a lot of fun at my Valentine's Class. I offered an extra card to anyone who was registered by last Friday. Class was on Wednesday. It snowed so I had some no shows but the rest of us had fun. First card I'm showing is from the Henry Says.... set. It features Henry/Henrietta and a googly eye. I stamped her on Wisteria Wonder and cut her out. Isn't she cute?

We also made a cute envelope and note from the Simply Sent kit. The kit came with pre-scored dsp for the envelopes plus dimensionals  circle cut-outs, baker's twine and a little note card. Perfect to tuck into a shirt pocket, lunch bag or even the visor in the car. We followed the exact directions in the kit for this one. Quick and simple.

I was asked for a a cute gift that could be given to a teacher, friend, or classmate. I offered pencils or Tootsie Rolls to put into the skinny bag. We topped the bags with a glitter heart and the Valentine's heart. Everyone loved it and the bags were a hit too.

If you're having trouble finding them, the skinny cello bags are $2.50 for a package of 50 bags. Dimensions are 1" x 8" and the item # is 124134. If you are local, call me and I'll place your order with my next workshop. That will save you on some shipping. You could also book your own and I'll show you and your guests several fun ways to use these.
