Make Way for NEW stamp sets!

I am clearing out some stamp sets to make way for new ones!  The new Spring 2010 Idea Book will be here before you know it, and I  know that I will "need" new stamps!  So I am selling some of my own stamps to make way for new ones.  Some of these are really hard to part with, but I haven't used them in a while, so I want them to have a new home where they will be put to good use.  Here's list with prices, and a slide show as well.  The slide show is NOT in order of the list, but it does show the condition of all the stamps.  All of the CTMH stamps are in good condition even if used-always cleaned and protected from sunlight.  The Stampin' Up sets are in very good condition-very slightly used.  The Technique Tuesday sets are either new or slightly used as well.  Prices are marked.  Email me at if any of these need to come to your house!

Emporium Acrylic Album

This slideshow features a another fabulous mini album-this time the My Creations Acylic Album.  This one uses Emporium paper and coordinating My Stickease, window charms, and cocoa ribbon.  Yes, that's IT!  It's not even a half of a paper pack, and I did not stamp anything for this album!  The best part is, CTMH's Bonding Memories glue works GREAT for adhering the paper to the acrylic.  I used to use Liquid Glass, which works great as well, but it was messy to smear the LG around with my finger so you couldn't see it.  With Bonding Memories, it's not necessary!!  Check it out!

Emporium Level 2 paper pack x7105b
Emporium My Stickease  x7105c
Window Charms z819
Cocoa Grosgrain Ribbon z1100

The design for this album comes from my very talented and wonderful Senior Executive Director Tina Sutton.  She designed this album and taught it at the NJ Scrapbook Expo.  She very generously shared the directions (and the whole kit, actually!) with those of us who worked the expo.  Thank you Tina!!!

Jingle All Sorts Mini ALbum

Here is a great idea for an economical holiday gift!!  It takes less than half of a pack of any CTMH Level 2 paper pack, the album itself, and I added some stamping (of course!) and some My Stickease.  

All Sorts Mini Album z1224
Jingle Level 2 paper pack x7115b
Jingle My Stickease x7115c
Heartfelt Die Cuts- Wonder z1210
White Daisy Mini Medley Accents z1136
White Daist Grosgrain Ribbon z270
Creme Brulee Ribbon z1131
Holiday Collection Ribbon retired
Snow Flurries d1384
No Peeking d1177

Colors in this paper pack are Tulip, Juniper, Olive, Creme Brulee, and White Daisy.  Go here to see Jeanette Lynton's projects featuring these colors as well.
Go here to buy the recipe materials on my website.  Many of the material I used I had in my craft room already, so you could always substitute embellishments that you already have for some of the things I used.  

Remember, people appreciate hand made gifts that are made from the heart.  Especially in these tough economic times,  it's important to really think about what "It's the thought that counts" means to you.  Does your gift mean more when it costs more?  Or is it really about how much love and thought you put into your hand made gift with all its little imperfections?  I know which one I'm choosing!!

Tuckerton Vendor Fair!!!

Tomorrow night is the Vendor Fair at the Scrapbook Cafe in Tuckerton!  I will be there with my displays, free idea books, and samples of our great products!  Please join us between 5-9 pm at the Cafe at the Village Shoppes in downtown Tickerton, it's right on Route 9.

Other vendors that will be there include Party Gals, Lia Sophia, Tastefully Simple, and Pampered Chef.  We will be giving out gifts for those who are booking their holiday shows!  NOW is the time to book a home party to give your friends (and you) a chance to get some holiday shopping done in the comfort of your home.  Who really wants to fight the crowds at the malls, finding a parking space, getting into all those GERMS in the stores!!  Shop at HOME!  
People booking shows with me with earn an adorable exclusive stamp set perfect for holiday gift tags:  check it out!
This set has FOUR adorable images that are just right for tiny gift cards, gift tags, accents for winter and holiday layouts, anything at all!  I will have some samples made up using this set for you to see, so be sure to visit my table and BOOK YOUR PARTY!  We can do any type of party, too.  I will have my display board set up with different ideas for parties that you can choose from-my goal is to help you have a FUN and RELAXING party with your friends and family, as well as getting you as much free product as possible!  

November is, of course, STAMPAGANZA, and this is a great time to have party so you and your guests can take advantage of this great special-buy two stamp sets, get one free-and it's unlimited!!  Buy as many as you want!  This month's stamp of the month is awesome, too-that's the top picture.  I used it to make a gingerbread house card-it's great for cookie exchange tags, layouts about your home that you grew up in or your dream house, a little girl's layout about her dollhouse, the list is endless!  

December is also a great time to have a party-because FELICITY begins in December!!  What is Felicity?  Well, you'll have to come to my table at the vendor fair to see a flyer of it.  But what if you don't want to clean up your house for everyone to come over?  That's okay-you can have your party at MY house!  It's easy to do, I do all the work, you just bring your snack, your friends come here, and I get your party going!  My home is non-smoking and mostly pet free, we have one old cat who comes in but he never bothers anyone.

I hope to see many of you and your friends at the Vendor Fair!  I am so excited!!

Stampaganza is an awesome campaign that begins on November 3 and runs through November 30.  This is an opportunity to grow your stamp collection, grab those retiring stamp sets before they leave forever, and save money while doing it.

Buy two stamp sets, get one free, it's as easy as that!  Sets that fulfill this are any sizes A through E.  The Stamp of the Month does not count towards getting a free set, but you can get the SOTM free or a reduced price with Stampaganza.  Free sets include any sets A-D that are currently available.

On my website,, the retiring stamp sets are highlighted in their own category so you can easily find out which ones are going, going, GONE by December 31!

November is a great time to have a gathering or even a book party, so contact me TODAY to save your date, because my calendar is filling up.  Can't wait to party with you!!!
