I know this is a repeat from yesterday but after watching the telethon and seeing the miracles of children spending 6 or more days under rubble and being rescued alive and the misery of the Haiti's people,  I am more determined to help in small ways.  Donating rice and beans to my church and supporting the efforts of Stampin' Up! as well as Shoes for Souls through the Garner Women's club are a few ways I can help.  A little blog candy to sweeten the purchase.  Any purchase of the I {Heart} Hearts Stamp Set will also get a yard of ribbon ( color of your choice) from the new mini catalog free. I will also give you a free punch on your stampin' rewards card. 

You may order through my web site or by contacting me personally. If you order through the website make sure you contact me with you ribbon choice.

Happy Stamping!

I have been working hard on Valentine's Day cards and have posted  three below.  These are the traditional red and white theme.  I also wanted you to see how you can make a variety of cards using one stamp set.  These are all made using the Love You Much (113756) stamp set found on page 44 in the 2009-2010 Idea Book and Catalog.  I am working on some that will have non-traditional colors so keep watching!  

This first card was made with the Sizzix Scallop Square Die (115950), Basic Black (106532), Whisper White (106529) and Real Red (107103) card stock. The front was dry embossed in our Perfect Polka Dots textured impressions folder (117335) and the real red heart was cut with our Scalloped Heart of Hearts embosslits die (117332) both available available January 5th in our Occasions Mini Catalog.  The greeting on the inside of the card is stamped in  Real Red ink (103133) using the Love You Much stamp set (113756)

 This card was made by crimping (101618)  Whisper White (106529) card stock which is layered on  Real Red (107103).  The birds stamped in Real Red (103133) ink are also from the Love You Much (113756) stamp set.

This last card was made using our Sending Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (1171853), which will be available January 5th in our Occasions Mini Catalog, Real Red (107103) and Whisper White (106529) card stock.  The heart was stamped using a stamp from the Love You Much (113756) stamp set.  Can you tell I love this stamp?!

Please contact me to schedule a workshop or to place an order.  You can also place your order through my Stampin' Up! website. Don't forget you earn a free item from the Sale-a- Bration Catalog for every $50.00 you spend.

Until we stamp again,

Happy New Year!  Get out your wish list, it's time to get free stamps!  Free stamps you say, how can that be, I haven't hosted an event?  It's our annual  Sale-A-Bration and  Occasions Mini Catalog campaigns.  I am soo excited with the new Occasions Mini catalog.  There are new style punches, much easier to store and use, a new Biggz die, ribbons,embellishments,Valentine
and spring papers that are to die for.  My favorite... the clear mount rubber stamp, these babies are the bomb!  For those of you that like the traditional wooden mount, no, they are not being discontinued, you now have a choice.  The new acrylic mount are the same rubber stamps but easy to store in a DVD sized case and mount on clear acrylic blocks.  Have a hard time lining up your stamps so they are straight, like me?  Your problem has been solved by Stampin' Up!.  I can't wait for you to try these out, you will become a fan after the first stamp.   When does this happen and what are the details you ask?

Both campaigns launch January 5th.  Sale-A-Bration  runs January 5- March 31.  Here is how it works:  For every $50 you spend on Stampin' Up! products you can choose a free item from the Sale-A-Bration  catalog including clear mount or wood mount stamps, the new scallop punch, new designer paper and much more.  Don't see anything you want in the Sale-A Bration Catalog?  You may also choose from as list of items from the 2009-2010 Idea Catalog.
The Occasions Mini Catalog  runs January 5- April 30 and is filled with new stamp sets, wood or clear mount options, new ribbon, brads, pink & red corduroy and epoxy buttons.  There are new spring colors and a Vintage Vogue stamp set that is one of my favorites.  

Please e-mail me at kstandish@bellsouth and I will drop them in the mail.  

This would be the perfect time for you to host an event.  You will get free stamps as hostess based on a minimum $150  group order and $$ to spend on additional supplies.  The big bonus is anyone including you that orders $50 or more will get a free selection from the Sale-A-Bration catalog for every $50 they spend.  For example, if you or one of your quests spends $100 they will pick 2 free items.  How cool is that!  Contact me to set up a date, make your guest list, take out your wish list and let's celebrate 2010!!!

Until we stamp again,
