Happy Saint Patrick’s Day…Think GREEN!

Announcements/ Contests/ Stamping/ Uncategorized

Hey Stampers! Before I head out to a Stampin' Up! party with one of my new team members and her peeps, I wanted to wish you all a Happy Saint Patrick's Day! You know, this is the “day of green” so I thought we should think about Stampin' Up! “greenery” and have a little fun!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day...Think GREEN!

Over the years, we have had quite a few different shades of green in our color collections. What's your favorite Stampin' Up!”Green” – current or past? Mine are Lucky Limeade and Wild Wasabi. Post your answer in the comments section and let's see how many different greens we can name!

Also, did you see the Limerick contest I posted the other day? If not, you can read about it here, and I hope you'll play along. Winner of the contest (NO PURCHASE NECESSARY), will get fifteen handstamped cards with envelopes!

STAMPARATUS WINDOW 2 UPDATESTAMPARATUS WINDOW 2 UPDATE  Happy Friday Stampers! I have some TIGGERiffic news from Stampin' Up! if you reserved your Stamparatus in the Reservation Window 2. This was at the end of 2017. Here is the update direct from SU:

Isn’t it awesome when everything goes pretty much according to plan? We think we can say that about shipments during Stamparatus Window 1, and now we can’t wait for more of our demonstrators and customers to get their Stamparatuses during Window 2.

And we have good news! While we announced that Window 2 would have two different shipment dates—March 20 and one in early April—we’re excited to tell you that all reservations from Window 2 will be ready to ship in March.

Please note that (due to factory shipment schedules) we will stagger our deliveries by market: North America, the South Pacific, and Japan can begin finalizing their orders on Tuesday, March 20, while our demonstrators in Europe—who may experience shipment and customs delays—can begin finalizing their orders approximately one week later.

As you prepare to finalize your order for Window 2, please keep the following in mind:

Take care not to delete the Stamparatus from your order. If it is deleted, we will return it to the order; however, there will be a delay.
You may add other items to your order; also, current promotions will apply depending on when the order is closed. – So if it is during Sale-A-Bration, add to your order and get a SAB item for free!!
Thanks to everyone for their amazing support as we work to get this fantastic stamping tool in the hands of as many demonstrators and customers as possible—before it goes live in the 2018–2019 annual catalog!

I am so  excited about this! I have my Stamparatus and Stamp Slave Dave and I have been busy testing it and figuring out all the tips and tricks to share with you!


You will get an email from Stampin' Up! telling you the Stamparatus has been placed in your shopping cart at my online store. You will just log in at, put in your user credentials and complete your order. ANY questions once you are ready, please call or email me!! I can't wait for you to get your hands on this wonderful new tool!

The Stamp Maven St. Patrick’s Day Limerick Contest

Contests/ Holidays / Special Days

Hello Stampers! Happy Friday Eve! 🙂 I want to tell you about The Stamp Maven (that's me!) St. Patrick's Day Limerick Contest. I did this as part of a coaching group I'm in and I thought it would be fun to do here on my blog.

The Stamp Maven St. Patrick's Day Limerick Contest

I want to give away  FIFTEEN handstamped cards with envelopes. These are not any ordinary cards. They are beautiful works of art stamped by leaders in Stampin' Up! A group of us do swaps whenever a new catalog unveils and I always have a giant stack that I can't bear to send out…lol. Anyone else keep many of the cards you stamp instead of mailing/giving to family and friends?

All you have to do to have a chance at winning these cards (no purchase necessary!) is to come up with a limerick (stamping-related) and either post here as a comment or leave a comment on my Facebook site on the post you see about this contest. Here is one I wrote so you can get an idea if you've never written a limerick!

There once was a fair stampin' lass
Who needed fresh faces for her class
She got out the phone and dialed and dialed
Her class registrations have simply gone wild.

That's it…pretty simple. It can be longer than this, whatever you like.

Contest ends at midnight on March 17, 2018 (St. Patrick's Day).  Dave, one of my customers (she's not participating),  and I will pick the winner. Our judging is final and, in case of a tie, winners will each get eight cards.

Email me with any questions. HAVE FUN! We can't wait to see what you come up with!!
