A 30 Second Card....

Get this....we are in Texas at the Creating Keepsakes Convention.

I'm talking with a customer {aka Future Club Member!} and I hear a squeal from across the aisle....."It's the 30 Second Card Girl!!!!!"

Haha! My 30 Second Card Videos are sorta famous! {Or is it infamous?!?}

Anyway, it's time for a new episode. :)

I love how the card turned out......

Can't see the video? Yikes! Click Here to see it!

So, tonight I'm waiting to get the video code so I hopped over to our Gallery and I found this beautiful card...

It was created by Stephanie M. in PA. Wow, Stephanie! Not only do you have an AWESOME name, but wow, you worked the stamps! I love how she used the getwell2you, flowers2doodle AND the sentiments4circles stamp sets all on one card!

Proof that YES our stamps work well together. ;) {Oh, and for extra points, she used her Sizzix machine....Yes, I'm partial to Sizzix! Well, very partial!} :)

{ me and I'll send you a special blinkie for being on our blog!} :)

Happy Stamping!

Can You Say.....

TEXAS?!?! :)

That's right! The Stamps of Life is in Texas! We are exhibiting at the Creating Keepsakes Convention in San Marcos, TX.

We've met some great Club Members and we've signed up some new Club Members! Of course, everyone loves our PINK booth. :)

Here are a few quick photos I stole from Ken...he took them, but he hasn't even seen them yet...we are playing "take turns" on the laptop and it's my turn. ;)

The Booth! I love all the *PINK* :)

I thought this one was just funny.

Ken is always taking pictures and for some reason, I just burst up laughing. :)

This is after the first day. Tired, but happy. The chairs in the lobby of the hotel are so fun, I made Ken take my photo this time!

Tomorrow is another day in the booth! We then fly home Sunday morning. Many Club Members have asked if Cookie is here. Sadly, no. We left her home with her big sister and the house/puppy sitter. ;)

We did find out though, that Cookie was playing with what the pet sitter *thought* was a toy...well, it wasn't....






No details yet...that's all I was told...not sure I want to know anymore! ;)

Big hugs!

I'll be honest....

When I released the spooky2scare stamp set, in the video, I made mentioned how great it coordinates with the Thanks2Fall stamp set. I even showed a few samples of how well they go together.

Well, let me tell you....that led to us selling OUT of the Thanks2Fall stamp sets! ;) Luckily, our stamps are Made in the USA, so we were able to get them back in stock ASAP. Thanks to overnight delivery and UPS. ;)

Now that we have the stamps back in stock, it's time to release a video we recently taped. It's a video we plan to use on the website to show the stamp set in action. Eventually, we will be taping new videos for each stamp set, so stay tuned for more. :)

{Can't see the video above this line? Click Here to check it out!}

Here's a great card from our gallery on this set....It's by Chris in IN...

Chris, thanks for sharing your card with us! If you have a blog, email me for a blog badge! :)

Just a few more days until we hop on a plane to TX! Our flight leaves at 6:15AM...hahaha...THAT will be an adventure. I am NOT a morning person and I even told Ken I might not sleep that night and pull an all nighter...Yeah, well, we'll see. ;)

Big hugs!

It's Special Release Time! THREE NEW STAMP SETS!

Hello my Friends!

Three new stamp sets, and one of them will really KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF! ;)

We actually have two videos to share with you today! Check them out!

Here's the low down on the calendar2build stamp set....

Click Here to watch the videos if you don't see it above!

Check out these samples by our Design Team!
Jeanne used the flower2doodle AND the sentiments4circles stamp set for this one!

Emily took the flower2doodle stamp set to the next level with the embossing on this card!

I created this clipboard (it was in the video). I used my new eclips machine by Sizzix and the swirls2build and calendar2build stamp sets.

I'd like to take a quick moment to remember the lives that were lost and the lives that were forever changed on this day, not that long ago. My thoughts and prayers are with the families who lost a loved one.

And also, a Big Hug to my Mom, whose birthday is today. :) Happy Birthday, Mom! I guess I need to go make you a card.... ;)

Big hugs,

Hello My Friends!

As the spooky2scare stamp sets start showing up in mailboxes around the world, I wanted to share a few more designs from our incredible design team!

This adorable treat set was created by Deb Felts. I love how the ghost is holding a sign!
And the stamped candy corns look good enough to eat!

This card by Laura Williams shows a softer side of the ghost! {different face!} She used the smiley face from the banners4all stamp set to make the ghost a friendly fellow!

Beverly Sizemore made the ghost spooky with this card! And then she added a few friends!

I can't wait to see what you create with your stamp set! Make sure you upload your projects to our gallery for a chance to win a free stamp set!

Also, we are in the final days for the gallery contest on the trees2build stamp set! Upload your creations asap for a chance to win! Two winners are chosen randomly! {Next week}

To my American friends, Happy Labor Day! Monday is a holiday here in the states, so no mail delivery or pick up. I think we are going to take the day off {Oh, who am I kidding? We will take a few hours off....} ;)

Anyway, happy weekend!

Big hugs!
