Stamp of Approval coming soon

Over a year ago, the idea for a hand picked collection of stamping goodness was born.

First, it took a long time to “talk me into” doing it.   I loved the idea, but fear was holding me back.

I’m sure this has never happened to you…right?  ;)

Once I embraced the idea and decided to go through with it, I had a lot of friends on my side.  It’s been a labor of love, for sure, and there have been so many people involved in bringing this to market.

We just announced the concept of “Stamp of Approval” (get it?  it’s a box of STAMPS and they have my “stamp of approval“??!! ’cause I love them.  hehehehe) last week and WOW!  You all are just about as excited as I am!  WOOOHOOOO!

This week, I’ve introduced you to various products that were designed FOR this box and today I’ll introduce you to the Curtis Background!  This video includes details on the release (tomorrow!), how this stamp was designed and a fabulous watercolored background.  Watch!

I could probably emboss, scribble and spritz all day long with the Curtis Background stamp.  So Much FUN!
SOA blog hop3 I hope you love this hand-picked collection of products as much as I do!

Be sure to get on the wait list – this box is going to sell out quick!

Stamp of Approval – learn more and get on the list!

If you miss out on this box, the products will be available from the retailers in 2016, and there is a Holiday box coming in October!  If you are on the wait list for this box, you will be on the wait list for the holiday box as well.  :)

SOA blog hop2 Here’s a peek at another one I did with some rainbow colors.  SO PURDY!  I just love it!

    Your concept is one I have been dreaming about for several years! I itched for someone to come up with a subscription/box of goodies specifically for stampers! There are a lot of wonderful subscriptions out there, but none that met the desires of my little stamping heart. Thank you so much! Early bedtime tonight so I can be up and ready to click “buy” tomorrow!

I have to say that our styles must be fairly close because I’m loving this box! I’m excited to see that there may be a stamp of the month or quarte or whatever you are doing that I would be excited to actually pay for and get! Nicely done. Next month, when I know I’ll have more time to stamp, I’ll join Stamp Nation. Where have I been that I just heard about this on Stampin’ Enablers? My eyes are now opened!

  • Liz August 5, 2015, 12:40 pm

    I LOVE this idea and am on the wait list, but here’s a question, I live in the UK, so what is the shipping going to be? And what is the value going to show on the shipping note? If it is too much we will have to pay TAX and a handling charge. If the box is marked GIFT we pay tax over GBP36, otherwise if it is over GBP15. Hope this won’t price me out of being able to get this.

  • Janette August 5, 2015, 12:40 pm

    I like the technique used for the 3 cards. It seems to be the popular method right now. I am anxious to know the cost of the kit. I don’t make many cards during the summer as it is way too hot in my craft room and I have a room air conditioner. Must be my age; the heat hits me harder. Ha-ha. Keep up the good work, Katherine. I know it keeps you busy and must help in the income bracket.

  • Pam August 5, 2015, 5:18 pm

Thanks for sharing your projects with us and for creating “The Box” with so many fabulous goodies to play with! I’m so sad :( that I wasn’t able to purchase one the time.

Congratulations Catherine! Have a wonderful day! :)

  • Catherine August 11, 2015, 9:15 am

    Hi Kim! Unfortunately, I am a small business and I’m working with small businesses, so part of the limited supplies is because we can only handle so many orders.
    We are looking into ways to be able to offer more in the future. Thank you for being here!
