A few weeks ago, I held a stamp camp. We had so much fun making a great set of 12 cards and a case to hold them. Each of the attendees got a goodie bag with $25 in product to use to make the 12 cards and case with plenty of product to take home and create additional projects.
We have just two weeks left of Sale-A-Bration. I’ll be the first to admit, I did not like this set at all when I saw it. I thought the flowers were just ugly. However, I went a head and got the Avant Garden set because I mean who doesn’t love a free set! A few weeks ago, we had our monthly team Facebook pajama party. One of our challenges during the event was to create a card with a stamp set you have never used. Well guess what that meant, I had to touch them ugly flowers.
Well, I did. I created this card which actually was a big hit at our monthly Simply Beautiful Card Class.
It has been weighing on my heart to create a team name for my team of stampers. It was something that I have been thinking about and even had team materials printed with Inky Fingers Stamping.
I felt like, I needed to take my business in a new positive direction. I needed to have my team separate from my business. I know that sounds really bad when you read that. But let me try to explain a little better. Inky Fingers Stamping is my personal brand – its who I am. I am constantly stamping with inky fingers.
I wanted my team to have an identity of their own. I am forever grateful for those who want to join me on this journey as a hobbyist (taking advantage of the amazing discount for themselves) or as a business owner. I have been all over this amazing journey and know what a blessing this journey is.
Which is why I choose the name I did – Blessed Stampers. I have been incredibly blessed with some pretty fabulous women who have invited me into their lives. They love me as broken as I am, support me with all of my crazy ideas, cheer for me when I am about to do something utterly amazing – but most of all these women are my tribe. And for that …
I know they are going to read this post and to them, I say thank you. Thank you for inspiring me to bless my team, my customers, my family, my neighbors as you have blessed me. Because of you I am a Blessed Stamper.
I’ve kept a secret for a few weeks, really I needed time to process it all. I was called by Andrea Winters from the Stampin’ Up! home office asking me to be a product spotlight presenter at OnStage Local in Shreveport. I was in a state of shock when I heard the voice mail and it took me about 45 minutes to contain myself before calling Andrea back.
A few days later I received this box filled with complete goodness! During OnStage I will do a presentation on a brand new product suite. I have spend the last week working on display samples and information to share with those in attendance. I’m super nervous! This is such a big honor, I don’t want to screw this up!
I wish I could share with you the inside of this box or the projects I am working on – but I’ve been sworn to secrecy until OnStage when I present or April 9th to post here on my blog. All I can say, is this suite really is amazing. It’s fresh, clean, wonderful, amazing, and perfect for all of our needs.
How would you love to be part of an amazing community of stampers who share ideas and inspiration?
I have an amazing group of demonstrators on my Team – spread from coast to coast! The one thing that bonds us is our love of stamping and creating papercraft projects. I never thought of myself as creative until I picked up a stamp over 10 years ago and put ink to paper. I was amazed what I could create! You will be too!
I also am very lucky to share ideas with other talented stampers – both from my own team and from other demonstrators and stampers, I’ve come to know over the years from all around the world! Creativity makes the world a much smaller and happier place.

Have I told you how much that I love Paper Pumpkin? Every month I get a box of pure goodness delivered right to my door. What I love about the kit is that it comes with everything (but snips) you need to create your projects. The first kit you receive also includes a clear stamp block.
I’m not going to lie – there are times I let my kits stack up. Although the kits normally take about 30 to 45 minutes to complete. I might save a few kits knowing that I have a few days off or I have a day full of doctors appointments.
There’s a big surprise coming in April to Paper Pumpkin! The kit was inspired and designed by Stampin’ Up! CEO Sara Douglass. Don’t forget you can get a 3-month prepaid subscription(137859) for just $55 (a savings of $4) and instantly qualify for a FREE Sale-A-Bration item until March 31st!
I know I’ve been away a bit. I’m sorry for that. I’ve been moving – well actually my friend Stacey has been moving my blog from one hosting site to another hosting site. She has been amazing and there is no way that I could have ever done this on my own. Not only did she take care of my website site but also the migration of my email too! Seriously, I don’t know what I would have ever done without Stacey to do this move.
So be prepared for some postings to start again! I’ve had lots of creative time, announcements to make, personal stories to share and so much more. So, stay tune for me to get caught up and share with you whats been going on.
