SOA Release Week Day #1

Share This!


Oh, my friends….it’s the most exciting time of the QUARTER!

I pinch myself every single day when I think about how this little box has changed and enriched my life….thank YOU for being along on this ride and supporting and loving it right along with me.

I got a message recently about the “little box-o-happiness” and boy!  Isn’t that true?

We started working on this collection back in the fall, so WOOOHOOO!  It’s about daggone time that we SHARE it with you!

The Young at Heart Collection includes (yes, you will see every product in my videos over the next week):

  • 4 stamp sets
  • 2 sets of dies
  • 1 stencil
  • and a special surprise party favor that you will see when you open your box!


The stamps and dies in this collection are darling and fun and so ridiculously versatile…just WAIT until you see them all!

There’s also something else special in this box and that will be revealed in Sunday’s video.  Stay tuned!

Check out all these cards I made just with the Ring in the Celebration Stamp Set, HB2U Stamp Set and the Birthday Journal Card Die Set.

Stamp of Approval 3

I kept all of these cards really simple to show the versatility of the stamps and how many different looks you can achieve just from different combinations of colors and stamps.

All of these projects will be included in the PDF download that is FREE for everyone that purchases this collection.  We compile the Dream Team samples along with mine in one handy Project Guide.  Pretty awesome, eh?

If we’ve learned anything from the first two releases it’s:

  • Anything can happen.
  • Keep the lines of communication open.
  • Be flexible and patient.
  • Don’t schedule ANYTHING for release day (that’s more for my team and I!  lol)
  • The collections will sell out.


Fingers crossed for a smooth release…we’ve done a LOT of work on the back end to put some new systems in place to hopefully make a cleaner and smoother process.  Things will look much the same for you, but the orchestra is being fine tuned. ;)

If you’re not on the wait list yet, CLICK HERE to enter your info.  We also have a Q&A over there in case you have questions.  If we didn’t answer them all, please shoot me an email!

***Please note – we are NOT using the same shipping method as last time.  DHL was DEFINITELY not the way to go.  Live and learn.

The Postal Service has changed a few things and we were able to bring down the shipping cost in the US a teensy bit (YAY!) and your boxes should arrive in 3 – 5 days.

International shipping is different and I’m so sad that it’s increasing by a couple dollars (it’s not updated on our FAQ yet…but I kept it down as much as humanly possible).

Phew!  Lots going on…thanks for being here!  See you tomorrow!

    Hi Catherine. You always impress me. Just when I think you can’t top something…. …You do. I am so thrilled that I joined Stamp Nation. It is truly a great place. I must admit I am NOT tech savvy. So you talk about Blogs and hop for a chance to win a SOA. Oye my mind just spins. I will catch up. I just hope I know what I’m doing when it comes time to win an SOA. LOL. But in the meantime, I just wanted to say that you and your dream team are just wonderful. Thank you for doing all of this hard work. We all appreciate it very much.
