It's time for a NEW Best of 25 Years Stamp Set! The set for May is "The Best of Brides & Babies". My favorite image is the new one that is exclusive to this stamp set — the darling bird anniversary image!! Here's a look at the full set:
New to the "Best of" collection? Here's the full skinny:
As part of our 25-year anniversary celebration, we're bringing back some of our favorite stamp images from the last quarter century and combining them into 12 sets, which will release-one set per month-during 2013. Even better, along with some great classic images, each "Best of" set will also include a never-before-seen image!
Some things to remember:
- All Best of stamp sets will include 3-5 images, including a never-before seen image, and will be priced at $14.95.
- While we are releasing just one Best of stamp set per month (with a new theme each month), all of the Best of sets will be available until March 31, 2014.
- All Best of stamp sets are available in Clear-Mount only.
As a special incentive to collect the Best of stamps, we're including a collector's card and 25-year proof of purchase sticker with every Best of set. Collect six stickers, and send it in to redeem a FREE set of your choice valued up to $14.95! Free sets must be redeemed no later than April 30, 2014.

Mother's Day. Teacher appreciation. Just because. Say thank you with this no-maintenance bouquet. There's no watering, no weeding-just enjoying. This easy-to-assemble kit comes complete with the petals, stems, and buttons to create the flowers, as well as four different tags to make this the perfect gift for any occasion. All you need is some paper, ribbon or a vase to add the finishing touches to the bouquet.
As if that weren't enough, the kit contains a "baker's dozen"! This means you can create and give (or keep) a dozen flowers, and have a bonus flower left over to pass along to someone new! Give it to someone you wouldn't normally think of: a teller at the bank, a grocery store clerk, or the librarian at your local library. Anyone you encounter on your way that you'd like to give a little "thank you" to-and introduce them to Stampin' Up!
Item 134542 $12.95
Available starting April 29, while supplies last.
- 2 sheets of preprinted and precut flowers on 12" X 12" cardstock; makes 13 flowers using Pool Party, Gumball Green, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, and Rich Razzleberry

- 13 green floral wire stems
Adhesive not included. (Glue gun recommended.)
Welcome to this week's MDS Blog Hop! Our theme for the week was end of school or summer. With 2 months left of school here on the east coast, I wasn't quite "there" yet this week (though we are having some BEAUTIFUL summery weather!) So I decided to use some photos from the trip to FIJI I just got back from. Even though they were just entering into their Winter — it sure FELT like Summer to me!
Here's a fun journaling tip… try writing along with a favorite song! This can be a lot of fun when you're having a writing block. Or, if you simply want to step away from the norm. I had the Barenaked Ladies song stuck in my head when I was working on this page, so substituted monkey for island and voila!
These pictures are from an excursion we took to a private island (I would write a little more seriously about that on the coordinating page).

Now check out the rest of the hop!

One of the things going on in my business right now that is the MOST exciting to me, is a big "makeover" to the offerings for my Team of Heartfelt Stampers. Here are just some of the new things that have been rolled out the past month, and ARE rolling out during the month of May:
- An ALL NEW, monthly "Stamping Rendezvous" for local team members featuring product giveaways, creative challenges, display board artisans, product demonstrations, make and takes and more!
- Those who can't make it to the Stamping Rendezvous in person can get a kit "on the go!" containing the make and take projects and e-mailed links to videos on how to assemble the make and takes as well as a video of the live product demonstration.
- An ALL NEW, VIRTUAL "Heartfelt Happy Hour" connecting team members from all over the state and country!!!
- An exciting overhaul on our Team Facebook Group with new MONTHLY CONTRIBUTORS posting loads of exclusive samples and content, among many other things!
- Weekly "Monday Morning Meetup" Videos touching base on the week's happenings!
- Weekly "Tip Me Thursday" Videos offering behind the scene advice using computer screen filming.
- A TEAM BLOG coming soon!
- And SO much more
It's been an exciting time, and I'm so passionate about the training that I'm able to deliver through new forms of social media, internet and technology!
I would LOVE to have you come see what we're all about and "test drive" our new features for yourself!
- To test drive The Heartfelt Stamper's Team, all you need to do is CLICK HERE and place a Starter Kit order.
- Normally, you select $125 in product for $99 when you place a Starter Kit Order. But when you order it through May 30th, you'll be able to select $155 in product for $99.
- Your Starter Kit SHIPS FREE, another 10% savings!
- YOU PICK what goes in your Starter Kit
- Select your RETIRING FAVORITES while you still can!
- Select items in the current catalog that won't be retiring!
- Select EXCLUSIVE SNEAK PEEK PRODUCTS before they are available to the public! Yes, even the NEW 2013-2015 In Colors!
- You can decide to purchase JUST the starter kit. There's NO requirement to purchase anything further, host parties, hold classes, etc. and there is NO penalty if you drop. It's a risk-free test drive that will run through October 31, 2013. See what we're all about with ZERO strings attached!
- Most of my Heartfelt Stamper's Team Members are what we call "Hobby Team Members." They enjoy being a part of our Team Community and receiving perks just by purchasing products for themselves and/or selling some product to a few friends and family members. If that's something that sounds like fun to you, you are welcome to renew (order $300 worth of product less your 20% – 30% discount) so that you can continue with us past October 31st. The choice is entirely yours.
- If you really get "bit by the bug" and think you might want to earn some money with Stampin' Up!, I'm fully qualified and have optional training in place to help you do that, too!
It's SUPER easy for you to take advantage of this opportunity today. Here are the steps!
- CLICK HERE and select $155 worth of product. You'll only pay $99 plus tax. No shipping and an extra $56 in FREE product!!!!
- As soon as I receive the confirmation e-mail I will welcome you to the Heartfelt Stamper's Team and help you get started taking advantage of all the perks that come along with it!
- You can choose to dig in and take advantage of all that's offered. Or, you can sit back and "lurk" and be a spectator, deciding how much or how little you want to participate in. We have both types of Team Members and I welcome both with open arms!
It's really that simple.
