There is so much you can do with the Foundations Box, I’ve barely scratched the surface.  Over the next week, we are going to share a TON of great ideas and sample projects with you…stay tuned!

You all have asked me some amazing questions, here are the answers to some of them!

  • Our first 12 colors plus black will be available in early 2017, but you get the first five first in this collection!
  • Individual ink pads will retail for around $5.
  • The Foundations Box is $67 (retail value is over $80).
  • The clear block and card stock will be available for sale individually in 2017.
  • The items in this box are brand new!  Never seen before stamps, too!
  • Our first run of this box will sell out.  Once it does, we will continue to accept orders, it will just take several weeks to receive it.  So if you want yours first, November 16th at 9 am eastern ordering will be open!


You all have lots more great questions about the ink pads, too, so watch this weekend for a post about that.

Thank you for being here and sharing in this excitement!  It’s been a long, exciting and (at times) stressful road to get here and you’re support keeps me going…thank you for that!  HUGS!

    Oh my….I’ve just purchased ink pads from SU and have stamps coming out of my ears I haven’t opened, but you know what……I love, love, love this box and will I be ordering. You betcha. Thanks Catherine. You’ve done it again. Happy weekend

    (I’ve also got a thank you card you enclosed with one of my orders I found which gives free shipping. Can I put this towards my order?)

  • Roberta K November 12, 2016, 9:36 am

    I so need ink! I’m always struggling with which one to buy. I bought a members SU collection last year and that’s worked well this year, but its not my favorite. I wish I had somewhere close to test them before I buy them. These look good so I’m counting on you Catherine!! You haven’t disappointed yet.

  • Linda Wilkinson November 12, 2016, 11:31 pm

    Hi Catherine these are amazing and I can’t wait to get them! Thank you! I also have a question the stamps that you created for your campaign to buy the computers, will they be available in your on line store? I was not able to get them at the time but would really like them!

    Thanks again for all your creativity and designs they amazing♥

    Darn, I so wish our Canadian Dollar wasn’t so low right now, I would love to order this and your Stamp of Approval kits! They look so awesome!


  • Christine Kosmak November 21, 2016, 12:05 am

    I am so depressed right now as I would dearly love to be able to get the Foundations box and Stamp of Approval one but the prices and shipping to Australia is just way over what l can afford on a carers pension. I especially would love to try out those delicious looking ink pad colours!
