Our next Stamp of Approval Collection goes on sale towards the end of September!  Isn’t it so fun that we get to have a party every quarter for SOA?  SO MUCH FUN!

Before we start getting too excited about the next release, let’s bask in the incredible creativity of all of YOU!

Now that you’ve had the Lovely Notes Stamp of Approval Collection for a month, it’s time to link up the fabulous cards you’ve made with it!  You might just WIN the next collection!  YES!

We can’t wait to see what you’ve made with the Lovely Notes Collection.


  • Photograph your card.
  • Upload your card online… to your blog, the StampNation Gallery, Instagram, Flickr, Pinterest, etc….
  • Grab the URL of your card and enter it in the linky.
  • Tell your friends to come over here and vote for your card beginning August 21!



  • Link up your creations through August 21 at 6 pm Eastern.
  • Voting will start on August 21 at 6:01 pm Eastern.

  • Winners will be announced right here on my blog on August 23 by midnight eastern time.


We will have THREE (different) winners!!!  One random winner as well as the top two vote-getting cards.


FINE PRINT:  ***To be eligible to win, your card must be made with the stamps and dies from the Lovely Notes SOA Collection (almost) exclusively.  We won’t disqualify you for including an extra goody or two (we know you have other products that are fabulous, too!), just make sure most of the card uses the LN SOA products.***

As this linky fills up with YOUR amazing creations, we will have a Parade ofLovely Notes SOA cards to keep you inspired and using your products long after you purchased them!

 (If you don’t have the LN SOA, no worries!  There will be a chance for you to win the next box with the release blog hop!)


The next Stamp of Approval collection goes on sale on at the end of September – be sure you are on the wait list so you get all of our updates and the link to purchase when it goes live!

ONLINE STORE OPENING:  What’s that?  You’ve missed some of our previous Stamp of Approval Releases?  No worries, my friend!

Our Online Store will be stocked with the products from our previous collections (excluding Lovely Notes) so you can purchase them individually VERY SOON!

Our store is opening for good!  WOOT!   We have some exciting products and releases coming outside the SOA Collections, though SOA will continue to be our biggest, best and most exciting product!

    How will everyone vote? I wanted to share the link to your blog to get my friends to vote, but when I click on my picture, it just brings me to my Stamp Nation gallery where the picture is posted. There’s no where to “like” it. Is this because voting hasn’t started yet? Thanks so much! This is my first time!

  • Maggie B August 18, 2016, 11:39 pm

    Hi CP ~ Such an exciting time!! Can’t wait to see what you’ve got cooking for this next set of SOA! I’ve been lucky enough to purchase every set and they just keep getting better and better. Feel free to send me mine in advance to “test” if you want me to! Buahahaha!

  • SusanME August 19, 2016, 10:58 am

    Is it possible to redo my link? My photo isn’t showing (although it does link to it – I’m using StampNation as the link). I’d like it to show in the gallery here, so would like to change the link to Imgur … Thanks!

  • Michelle Wallace August 20, 2016, 6:13 pm

    You are so generous Catherine, thanks for the chance to win! I absolutely love my lovely notes collection.

  • Irene Garcia August 20, 2016, 7:40 pm

    When does voting start? Above it says today at 6 p.m. but my friends are telling me that when they click on my link, it says 22 hours…????? I’m totally confused.

  • Catherine August 20, 2016, 9:56 pm

    Sorry, Irene, I had the date listed incorrectly above. Please accept my apologies! It is correct now.

    I will update the SN thumbnails with the correct images.
    Thank you!

  • Camelia Allen August 21, 2016, 1:01 am

    It would have been nice to have had choice to put in, to our, and not just, to my. Would have made the stamp more versatile

  • Donna Barthelt August 21, 2016, 10:26 am

    Cannot find the linky to upload an entery

  • Catherine August 21, 2016, 11:17 am

    Donna, scroll to the end of the entries and you will see a little blue box that says ‘add your link’.

    Hi, when I try to link to my image at StampNation, it keeps giving me the picture of the world with flowers. I have tried to link to the image in my gallery, in the SOA lovely notes gallery, the birthday gallery, and even clicked “view larger image” and tried to link that. The last option gave me the url with just the photo and no category, which I copied and pasted. Each time, I just get the StampNation world logo. Clicking on the thumbnail will bring me to the right image in the gallery, but I am not sure which StampNation image page or gallery to link to that will actually display the card image here. Somehow, I did get one linked, but I was trying to replace it by linking a better image and deleting my first one that did not show the complete card in the thumbnail here.
    Which image source should I be linking to? Thank you!

  • Catherine August 21, 2016, 9:17 pm

    Hi Dawn! I’m so sorry you had trouble!
    When you link to SN, it only shows the globe, since it’s a password protected site.
    When that happens, I go in and update the images.
    ALTHOUGH, when the globe shows up, you can click to update the photo and browse to your computer and add the correct one in there before submitting.
    Hope that helps, please click the contact button at the top of the page if we can do more to help!

  • Darby August 21, 2016, 10:12 pm

    Thank you for explaining that to me, I could not figure out what I was doing wrong, as normally I am pretty good with computer programs.
    Now that makes so much more sense, I thought I was getting spongy brain.
    Smiles, Darby

  • Lisa Harrolle August 21, 2016, 10:17 pm

    Wow! Fantastic cards everyone!! Voting for only 10 is sooooooo hard!! You all rocked this challenge!!

  • Debbie Lessa August 21, 2016, 11:04 pm

    First time voting, very cool Collection.

  • Natalie Bourque August 21, 2016, 11:44 pm

    Good luck mrs Karen Roberts

  • Victoria M August 22, 2016, 9:40 am

    Hey Catherine. I’ve had a few friends whom are experiencing trouble voting for cards. Apparently when they go to vote the hearts are already red and so they can’t vote? Thanks

  • Jenny Melander August 22, 2016, 11:27 am


  • sharon August 22, 2016, 7:57 pm

    Why is it so hard to find the cards to vote on? please what the heck is a linky? I would really love to see all the cards everyone else has worked on.

  • Catherine August 22, 2016, 8:04 pm

    Hi Sharon! You are exactly in the right place! Right before the comment section, you will see 117 cards posted. Those are the entries. It’s called a “linky” because people link their cards there.
    Please note there is a heart on every photo, click the heart to cast your vote.
    Thank you!

  • Catherine August 22, 2016, 8:05 pm

    I’ve heard that some people are having trouble viewing using Internet Explorer. They might want to try Chrome, Firefox or Safari. Hope that helps!

  • Arianna Barbara August 23, 2016, 12:04 pm

    Wow! It’s so hard voting only ten cards! They are all beautiful! Anyway, I can vote only for two cards. I don’t understand if it’s possible voting only two times for day….

  • Marianne August 23, 2016, 5:10 pm

    Darn. Cannot believe I missed out on this! I visit the blog at least once a week, but I totally missed the announcement and the voting. Would have loved a shot at winning another collection.
