New Schedule and a Promo

I am going to attempt to start the new posting schedule on Monday, November 2.  See previous post to see what themes will be used for posting each week day. The one caveat is that I have jury duty the entire month of November, so I will post when I can. It's a one hour drive to our county seat to report, so I'm hoping that I don't have to go in very often (if at all).

I am also announcing a Stampin' In The Sticks promotion. I will be celebrating my 10 year anniversary with Stampin' Up! on November 22, so I want to thank you by doing the following: for every $50 (before shipping & tax), spent in the month of November, I will take 10% off your total.  You will have to place your order directly with me (via phone or email) to take advantage of this promo you CANNOT place through my online store and get the discount.

I am also close to a milestone in sales: $50,000. If I reach that milestone prior to the end of the year, everyone who places an order between now and December 31 will get a FREE GIFT from me.

New Posting Schedule

As I said before, I am going to change the way I post to this blog to attempt to make it more interesting and informative for all who visit. I want to give each day of the week a theme. So far, I have decided on the following themes:

MANic Monday - masculine card samples...we all can use more of those, right?

Two-fer Tuesday - 2 samples that use the same stamp set, but a different layout or color scheme.

Way Back Wednesday - using retired stamp sets with current product.

3-D Thursday - a new 3D item each week.

Festive Friday - a sample that pays homage to an upcoming holiday or a birthday card.

Please let me know if you think these themes are of interest to you or give me some ideas of what you'd like to see.

October Birthdays

Now that the recipients have received their cards, I'm going to share the cards I made for October birthdays. They are very similar, yet different. Both use the Pansy Punch and the Flower Shop stamp set.
This card also uses the Birthday Blossoms stamp set.
This card uses some butterflies and a couple of embossing folders.
Thanks for stopping by today. Until next time...HAPPY STAMPING!

Stampin' Up! announced a new promotion this morning!

All stamp sets in the Annual Catalog and the Holiday Catalog are 15% OFF from today, October 19 through Friday, October 23 only! This does NOT include bundles, Host stamps or the rotary stamp. So, if you're like me and keep putting off some stamps and moving them down your wish's time to move them back to the top and take advantage of the discount!

Thanks to all who attended my second session of Tag It!. We made 12 more tags for the holidays. I made cute little 'turkey' gifts using the Curvy Keepsake Box. This is a pic from Pinterest, since I forgot to take pictures of the actual ones that I made. You can find several variations of this on Pinterest. I just thought it was too cute.
Can't wait for next month's session and the Pinterest inspired gift that I'm going to make for them. If you are in the North Idaho, Eastern Washington area and would like to join us (cost is $5), leave me a comment and I'll get in touch with you. Thanks for stopping by today. Until next time....HAPPY STAMPING!

Tag It! Class & Envelope Punch Board

Just a quick shout out to all who attended my Tag It! class on Saturday, Sept. 19.  It was so much fun! These are the cute little 'treats' that I made.
They are made with the Envelope Punch Board. I used some retired DSP I had and the buttons and ribbon were from SAB.

For those who expressed and interest in the Envelope Punch Board after the demonstration, you will find this site a lot of fun. It will allow you to add the measurements of your card and create an envelope to fit!

If you'd like to attend the next one, it will be on October 17 at noon. You can RSVP by going to my SU! website ( and clicking on events.

Thanks for stopping by today. Until next time...HAPPY STAMPING!

Hi All. This is my NEW blog. I'm trying to work out a few 'kinks'. But, I want this blog have a new post at least 3 times a week (or 5, if I can get my act together).

I would like to post things that you enjoy seeing, so please let me know in the comments if you would like projects that showcase stamp sets, techniques, etc. I am trying to work out a 'theme' for each day of the week (i.e. Manic Monday, Technique Tuesday, etc.). If any of you have suggestions, please comment.

Thanks for stopping by today. Until the next time...HAPPY STAMPING!
