Ok, here’s the skinny on the Stamp Set of the Month Club!

Cost:  $35 ($30 for local pickup) for Clear Mount – $45.00 ($40 for local) for Wood Mount

Cost includes stamp set (tax & shipping), 3 finished cards & envelopes and 3 detailed supplies list.


None!  You can purchase any month’s stamp set with no obligation to purchase any other months! So if you don’t like one of the month’s stamp set & projects, you don’t have to buy it!  But, when you purchase six (6) consecutive months or nine (9) in one year from your first purchase, you get a free stamp set of your choice worth $24.99 or less – tax & shipping included!

How to purchase:

I will post the stamp set and cards on the for the month.  If you wish to purchase that month’s stamp set & cards, contact me via email and I will send you an invoice to be paid via Paypal.  All payments must be in by the 10th of the month.  Projects and stamp sets will be sent out by the 26th of the month.


The project may consist of using more than just the stamp set you will be purchasing for the month, specifically verses. But the main focus of the projects will use the stamp set for that month.

Here’s the first Stamp Set of the Month Club stamp set.  Too Kind. I only have one of the cards done for this, the one I posted last night!  I’ll have the other 2 this weekend, but I assure you, you will love them!!!

Been back a week from Convention and I’m just getting caught up. We’ve had some construction done at our house and I’m starting with a new client for my “real job” (SU is my fun job!) so life is a little hectic lately!

The construction project is all done.  All we have left to do is put the ceiling fan up. We put a new room on so my husband can have someplace to go when the girls come over to stamp on Friday nights!!

Speaking of Friday night, I finally created the project for the class.  I’m away for 3 days (always traveling) and needed to get some project done for the upcoming classes!  Here is what we will be making Friday night,  This will also be one of the projects for my upcoming new Monthly Stamp Club program.  Stay tuned for that!!!

After almost 7 years of being a Stampin’ Up! Demo, I finally went to Convention!  It was a great experience for me and I learned a lot of great tips and met some great people along the way. It was a lot of travel, but so worth the trip. I haven’t even opened my suitcase full of goodies yet!  Already making plans to go next year!

It was also great to meet one of my favorite demo’s, Michelle Fisher. She doesn’t have a blog, but she is on Pinterest. Check out her stuff, she does beautiful work.

I’m finishing up my tutorial for Craft Project Central so after that, I will start creating projects for upcoming classes.  I can’t believe I don’t have any projects for Aug yet!!!  I have to get stampin! So wish I could stamp full time!

Here are some great promotions going on. Here they are. Contact me if you have any questions.

Day 3 was a tiring one.  Did most of my swaps, although one got messed up because they kept changing the time and I didn’t get an email about it!!  So I had some extra ones for the general swap.  Frankly, I think I’m going to do a general swap next time, we had to wait around for a specific time and we could have been doing other things so I don’t think I will sign up for as many next time.

Awards night was last night, the party after was much better.  It’s more fun for the people getting the awards I guess!!!  I might skip that one next time too, unless I get an award, LOL!!!

I updated more pictures on Shutterfly. Towards the end of the album, there are duplicates, sorry!  I messed it up somehow.  There are lots of great ideas here.  You should be seeing them in my upcoming classes!!

Here’s day 3 pic of my suitcase, not much more added unfortunately 😦
