SOA Young at Heart Collection Release BLOG HOP and Giveaway!

Share This!

SOA_YoungAtHeart_blogsized It’s been almost two years since the idea of a collection was born.  For a long time it was just a dream.

If you tuned into my Periscope last week (which you can still catch here- but do the blog hop first!), I mentioned that it took building a team of (mostly) women who support me and bring out the best in me to make this dream become a reality.  I’m forever grateful for those women and I’m grateful to YOU for helping make this dream the success that it is today.

If you haven’t viewed my video yet on how Stamp of Approval came about and why it’s awesome, CLICK HERE to learn more.  You can also get on the wait list for the sales link (eh-HEM!  It comes out tomorrow!).

Our first box sold out in one hour and one minute.

The second box was 85% sold out in less than 10 hours (and that was without having a website for most of that time!  Remember the hacking issue?  {shudder}).

And that, my friend, is why you want to be on the wait list to get the sales link as soon as it goes for sale.  Can’t wait!

I have a quick video for you today with four cards…be sure to read to the end for the Blog Hop links and how to enter to WIN your SOA Young at Heart Collection!

Watercolored Die Cuts Video Tutorial

Stamp of Approval Watercolored Die Cuts 7 I kept these cards really simple to show off the fun watercolored die cuts.

Stamp of Approval Watercolored Die Cuts 5 Add some layers in white for some subtle interest.

Stamp of Approval Watercolored Die Cuts 3 Perhaps you want to stamp on the middle layer and the Ring in the Celebration stamps are super fun to dress up that top layer!

    I just learned about your SOA Box today. It looks fun and a great way to get people to think “out of the box”. I’ve found that I buy similar style stamps and your idea would help get me to try new styles, techniques, stamps, and think outside my box:)

  • Orenda Smitb February 7, 2016, 9:38 am

    WOW I love these stamps and dies. :) Also all the wonderful cards made with them. :)

  • Susan February 7, 2016, 8:34 pm

    Love the clean look and the combination of several stamps! Used this inspiration on my granddaughter’s 1st birthday card – thanks.

  • Joyce Dyck February 8, 2016, 12:43 am

    WOW! I’m lovin this SOA kit! I continue to admire your creative mind. Thanks for continually sparking my mojo and encouraging me to try out new things!
