Stamp of Approval Goodness

Share This!

I always have a video for you on Thursday.  Right?  Well, today’s Thursday video is going to come a few hours late…hold tight!  I’m participating in something super fun, cool, epic and awesome.  Tomorrow morning, bright and early, you’ll find my next video!

I didn’t want to leave you hanging, so I thought it would be fun to share some Stamp of Approval goodness with you!

I’ve been seeing selfies of happy SOA peeps popping up (shared that yesterday) and I’ve seen incredible projects using the products that came in this collection.  Check these out, then read on for an update.

SOA Cards August 2015 058adj

StampNation Member, Lisa Harrolle made this one – I love the colors, the pop of black and white stripes and that pile of sequin-yumminess at the bottom of the shaker tag.

Oooh, BOY!  Lisa has a few more on her blog HERE.

soa Musechristmasvisions Kristie Goulet makes holiday cards all year long and I love this card that she posted on her blog last week.  She has had the most creative ways of using the leaf stamp from Eva’s Favorite Flowers!  I love it!  Click here for Kristie’s blog post.

Stamp of Approval Debbie Bonczek made this super fun card – LOVE what she did with the Curtis Background!    Click here for her blog post.

SOA Susan White Susan White has been sharing a lot of her cards on Facebook.  I absolutely love this one!  The stenciling, the colors, the layered flowers.  Very fun!


The news is good…I headed over to Riley Life, the fulfillment center that is going to pack AND ship all the Stamp of Approval boxes – do I hear a WOOT!!??    Handing this part off to them means we can GROW and more stamping friends can get their hot little hands on the quarterly SOA Collections.

I delivered the boxes so they can work on putting them together, then later in the day I got the word yesterday that the Pattern of the Rings Stencils arrived and are shipping today!

WHAT?!  That means I should have all the products to RL by the middle of next week at the latest.  It will take them a few days to pack up and ship out.

GREAT news, right?

Photo is of Tiffany and I – she heads up the projects and will be making sure your SOA boxes are handled with love.

I absolutely love the people that work at Riley Life.  I spent more than 2 hours there yesterday talking about SOA.

We talked about the BOX…meaning the actual box it comes in and the packaging.  We have some ideas on tweaking it and as we move along in the process, I will keep you updated.

I am beyond thrilled that I found Riley Life.  The people that work there are genuinly excited to be a part of this project.  WOW!  I’m happy, my family is happy, the SOA recipients are happy and RL peeps are happy???  PINCH ME!  This is just a big ole box of HAPPY.  How awesome is that?

One thing I’ve heard them say more than once is that THEY are the last people that touch this box before it arrives at the customer’s homes, so it’s important to do it right.

That ties in perfectly with my goal of making you jump up and down when you receive this box.   They GET that and want to make that happen, too.


As I’ve said before, this is a quarterly box.  The first box did not go quite as planned and we will tighten up as we move ahead…with that being said, we are just weeks out from the Holiday Box going on sale.  YES!  Look for it mid-October with peeks starting…well, they already started!

See you tomorrow with a super fun video.  Have a fabulous Thursday!
