Mystery Hostess!

I'm doing something new for the remainder of the month. For every order that comes in between now and 11am on September 30, those people will be entered to become my mystery hostess!
The lucky winner will get all the hostess benefits, on a qualifying order, without doing anything! Qualifying parties start at $200 in sales.
Don't forget, every order of $50 also gets FREE 3/8" stitched satin ribbon.

I can't wait to see who the lucky winner will be.
Make sure you share this with all your friends!

To be entered, you must email or call me with your order. Online orders will not be considered.
Good luck!

Get What YOU Really Want

The holidays will be here before you know it; and yes, I'm aware that it is only September.  But realistically in today's economy, spreading out your spending is a great idea.

If you've ever received a gift that you really didn't want or need, then this is for you.  I've got the solution to those unwanted gifts.  Simply complete my Gift Wish List form and send back to me.  You'll provide me with your wish list and the names & contact information of three people and I will contact them to let them know what you want!  It's that simple!

No more pajamas two sizes too big; or kitchen gadgets you will never use.

One piece of advice, list your items in order of importance!  That way when hubby says I want the first 3 items on the list, you know you're getting your top 3 picks!

Petite Diaper Bag

I adore the Petite Purse Die for the Big Shot!  The possibilities with this adorable little bag are endless; and to demonstrate, here is a shower favour I did up for my sister-in-law's baby shower this past weekend!


I cut the purse out of Chocolate Chip card stock, then cut off the flap to leave it open.  I then cut out a "pocket" to go on the front of the bag, which I affixed using Stampin' Dimensionals.  I then use a retired set for the baby bottle and food jar which I adhered inside the pocket.  Topped it all off with a bow using our 3/8" taffeta ribbon and voila, a cute little diaper bag!  Inside the bag are pacifier shaped candies, the perfect accent to any baby shower.

To learn more about the Petite Purse die or the Big Shot (or both), simply contact me for more information.  289-280-0304 or stampnsteph@gmail.com

New MDS Downloads

You've all heard me talk about MDS and MDS2, our digital project making software.  I absolutely love MDS2 and all the options available to me.  I never thought I would hop on the digital train, and I likely won't use it for scrapbooking as I truly enjoy traditional scrapping way too much!  But, as an accessory or to add details to a card, gift or even to create a hybrid scrapbook page, MDS2 is the perfect companion.  I absolutely adore the Toxic frame art I created to add to my Halloween decor.  Even the kids think it's spooky!

Today's digital download releases are just as fabulous as ever.  I really love the frames that you could add to any number of projects.

















Don't forget, you can download a FREE 30-day trial of MDS2 and use any of your downloaded artwork with it.
To order your trial, or digital downloads, simply click the shop now button at the top of the page.

If you're not sure how to get started and need some guidance, I'm always happy to help.  Send me an email or give me a call, 289-280-0304.

Happy stamping!
