StampNation Birthday Bash
Welcome to the kick off day for a week long Birthday Bash and I've got the DEETS!There's a lot going on here including some FREE memberships, my friends!Every day this week, the Dream Team will work with a new challenge and will be bringing inspiration, projects and video tutorials on their blogs and on StampNation.

Visit the Dream Team on their blogs:

Maureen Merritt

Kristie Goulet

Heather North

Allison Cope

Virginia Lu

Gayatri Murali


Be sure to visit these talented ladies all week long…some of them may or may not be giving away some SN memberships!  Just sayin'!

Speaking of giving away StampNation Memberships…maybe I should give some away as well!   What do you think?

In the four years that StampNation has been open, I can truly say it's changed my life.  I've also had members tell me it's changed theirs.  Seriously.   Members love SN for different any many reasons.

I think the top 2 reasons is that:

1.  It is basically a “one stop shop” for learning and inspiration.

No more scouring the internet for ideas and tutorials.  You will find hundreds of tutorials and tens of thousands of samples and ideas.  Easy and done.

2.  It's home.

I've had many, many members tell me SN is different than any other forum on the internet.  The members are supportive, encouraging and HAPPY unlike anywhere they've ever seen.

If you haven't tried it out yet, we invite you to!  Membership is month-to-month, so if you find it's not a fit for you, send us an email to cancel and we will take care of it right away.

But we think you will love it and stay a while :)

**Click here to learn more about membership benefits and to start right now**

Now that we've talked about WHY you should join us…let's talk about how you can WIN a spot!

Simply make a birthday card for StampNation!

Post it to your blog, grab our Birthday Bash badge and post that, too…then come back here and link it up.

If you are a StampNation Member, you can link your card through our gallery.  Instructions on how to do this here.

For every new project you link up, you will get two entries to win a free month at SN.

How about another way to enter to win?  Leave a comment here letting us know WHY you love SN if you are a member.  If you  aren't, leave a comment letting me know how long you've followed my blog and you'll get one entry.

You know what else is going to happen when we link up our cards?  We are going to build an awesome Birthday Card idea gallery right here!  Awesome, right?

After the response to the release of my Project Gallery, I thought this would be a really cool idea and a great resource for all of you.  :)

For every fifteen cards that are linked up, I will give one membership away.  (I'm hoping to give away a BUNCH!!!)

I can't wait to see your Birthday Cards!

Thank you for joining me for StampNation's 4th Birthday…it's an exciting time!

    just heard about StampNation today from Julee’s blog. I’m intrigued and interested! I would love to win a subscription to check you out further! Thanks for the opportunity to do so!

  • Mary Roberson January 11, 2015, 3:52 pm

    Happy Birthday, StampNation! Catherine, I’ve been following your blog for the past 3 years. I have watched your site evolve:) It has been fun to see how your daughter get in on the fun too. Hope SN celebrates many more birthdays!

  • Sue D January 11, 2015, 5:45 pm

    I think I have been following your blog for about a year now.

  • Diane J January 11, 2015, 6:02 pm

    Happy Birthday, StampNation & congrads to you Catherine. I have been following for somewhat less than a year. Such really good stuff. Thank you, Oh, P.S. winning would be great.

    I have been following you for a while but just joined SN recently. Looking forward to the week and lots of inspiration.

    Happy 4th Birthday!!! Not sure how long I have been following your blog, but it has been awhile (you were a SU demo at the time).

  • Jenelle Reyes January 12, 2015, 1:48 am

    I just learned of StampNation today from Facebook. I’ve done a few blog hops and have found so many new blogs and products but I know there are many more out there. I’m happy to have found you and I’m interested in your blog and would like to find out more about your membership subscription! I created a card…but I’m trying to figure out how to create a blog to share it with you. Thanks for the chance to maybe win a subscription!

  • Loly Borda January 13, 2015, 11:37 pm

    Happy Birthday SN! I’ve been following your blog since I started cardmaking in Jan 2011. Thanks for the chance!

  • Maddie January 14, 2015, 5:11 am

    I joined SN in June 2011 because I couldn’t get enough of Catherine’s videos! But it’s more than that- it’s the people and personalities- so supportive and encouraging!

  • Darlene Gabriel January 15, 2015, 11:39 am

    Happy Birthday!:) I’ve come here from Julee’s blog (Verve). StampNation is new to me. It looks very interesting — so many fun cards/projects and all the tutorials. Thanks for the chance to win.

  • janet January 18, 2015, 6:58 pm

    StampNation has been such an inspiration to me and my card making. I have learned so much and now have lots of new friends where we share what’s going on in our lives and give each other support when needed.

  • Brooke Rector January 19, 2015, 12:06 pm

    I’m just getting started with the card making hobby! I would love to win a month of membership to StampNation! If I find that I like it, which I’m sure I will, I’ll be sure to pay the monthly fee! I have been following your blog for the past 2 years and I love it! Thanks for sharing, Catherine! You inspire me!

  • Elle Cat January 19, 2015, 5:16 pm

    Hi Catherine, I have been following for about a year.

  • Fran W January 19, 2015, 5:47 pm

    I can’t imagine my life without SN. Whether I win a month membership (which would be great!) or not, I’m not giving it up any time soon! It gives me a one stop shop for endless inspiration, information on new products and trends, and a place to find encouragement and support for my own work. Thanks Catherine!

  • Patricia Parsons January 19, 2015, 7:59 pm

    Oh Catherine, I have come to so appreciate your StampNation site. I so enjoy everything being available at the time that I am as well. And each time I log in it’s like coming home to family. Everyone welcomed me and encouraged me even though I am new in my card making skills. Thank you for inviting me (us) to the party and wishing you HAPPY 4th. BIRTHDAY STAMPNATION with many more to come I hope.

  • Pat DeBano January 19, 2015, 10:31 pm

    Just recently discovered your website and am really enjoying the various techniques.

  • Sandy January 20, 2015, 9:28 am

    HAPPY 4th BIRTHDAY! And I wish you many more.
    I would love to win a free month to see what all this FUN is about!!

  • PARKER O January 21, 2015, 4:20 pm

    Oh! Oh! Oh! An opportunity to get a free membership. You and I just ‘talked’ about this and about my daughter, so I’m so exciting about your offering I can hardly stand it. Everything about StampNation sounds so good. Keep up the good job that I hear from some of your members.
