Thank you to everyone who who left a comment over the weekend about their favorite Stampin’ Up! color group! Many of you said it was really hard to pick just one group and I agree. Personally, I tend to gravitate towards the Brights but there are several colors in each group I love.

I used a random generator to pick the winner (I wish I could send the stamp set to each one of you).  The winner of the In Your Words stamp set is:


Nancy Boyd


Congratulations Nancy!!! I already have your address and will get your stamp set mailed today! Again, thank you again to everyone who participated!


Clearance Rack Refresh     

Update:  Stampin’ Up! just announced that they made a mistake in telling demonstrators that the Clearance Rack had been updated.  It will be updated TOMORROW, Wednesday, October 6, 2021 (that explains why I saw so few items).

Stampin’ Up! announced early this morning that there’s been a Clearance Rack Refresh. I’ll admit I don’t go over to the Clearance Rack very often so I’m not sure if the new items have been added or if more are being added throughout the day.  If you’d like to check it out, click here


Classic Stamp Pad Bundles

As with many companies around the globe, Stampin’ Up! is experiencing  supply chain shortages, global shipping delays, labor shortages, and transportation and delivery difficulties.  They are doing their best to get products in our hands.  Please read the information below from Stampin’ Up! about our classic stamp pad bundles.

“Due to ongoing supply chain challenges, we are unable to keep Classic Stampin’ Pad Bundles in stock. As such, we’ve made the decision to move these items to “Not Orderable” status for the foreseeable future. We will fill any backorders that currently exist but will not take additional backorders now that the items are turned off. Single Classic Stampin’ Pads are still orderable; while we can’t guarantee that these won’t go on backorder, we expect that they will continue to be available.”
