New Wood Mount Cases!!


Hey there, all! Such an AWESOME new thing to share with you guys!

Introducing our new wood-mount stamp set packaging! These new cases are similar to our clear-mount boxes and fit perfectly on the shelf right next to them. They also have the images and stamp set name on the spine to make your search for the right set even easier.

Starting May 31 all wood-mount sets will come in this new packaging (sneak peek sets will also be in the new boxes during the preorder). And empty cases will be available with the launch of the new catalog. That means you can transfer all your old sets to these new boxes! There will even be a template for you to create your own label for your old stamp sets (available May 31). A pack of four half-size cases (3-3/4" x 5-1/2") will sell for $4.95 and a pack of four full-size cases (7-1/2" x 5-1/2") will be $6.95.

Get ready for all the exciting new products in the catalog--especially the new wood-mount boxes!

*At this point, incentive stamps will not be packaged in the new cases. And remember, translated sets are only available in clear-mount.

Check out this video to see how completely awesome they are, and get some fun ideas for what to do with yours in June when you order them!

Mixed Bunch Thank You Notecards!

Hello everyone! It has been forever since I posted anything that I have stamped and I feel awful about it! I need to get back into the habit of keeping up this blog!

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine informed me that she was out of hand stamped thank you cards and that we should get together to make some! Today it finally happened! She brought her boys over and they played with Ava while we stamped!

Here is what we came up with:

Mixed Bunch Thank Yous

Very simple, and didn’t take a whole lot of time!

We used:

Paper: Whisper White Note Cards (& Envelopes), Whisper White CS

Ink Pads: Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo and Lucky Limeade, Basic Gray

Accessories: Stampin’ Dimensionals

Stamp Sets: Mixed Bunch and Made for You

Hope you like it! Hopefully I can keep the creativity coming!

Introducing: Stampin’ Up!’s Paper Pumpkin!!

Sweep away the mundane-your creativity carriage awaits!
I'm Paper Pumpkin . . .
I come to your door each month (a fully decked-out creativity carriage). I'll help you to escape your life with some paper fun.
I come in a sweet box, but you'll really love what you find on the inside:
All the stamps, ink, paper, and accessories to create pinable projects. Create stuff like cards, journals, décor, and more!
Paper Pumpkin by Stampin' Up! is a new monthly kit program that anyone (even you) can enjoy!

It's so easy to get started. Simply sign up for the program starting Monday, January 14 by visiting and click Get it. Every month a new, surprise project kit arrives at your doorstep. Just think of the anticipation of creating a fun project to pin, showoff, and share with your friends and family-every month!
Of course, you'll want to know more. So here's the nitty gritty:

  • You need to sign up for a kit by the 10th of the month to get that month's kit. If you sign up on the 11th of the month, your first kit will come the next month. (Let's say you sign up on May 10th, we'll send your kit around May 15th. If you sign up on May 11th, we'll send your first kit around June 15th.)
