January Stamp-of-the-Month Club: Starburst Sayings

January online Stamp-of-the-Month Club - Stampin' Up! Starburst Sayings - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye

Good morning, friends! I hope you’re having a great day! We had a blah kind of long weekend — baby’s nose started running like a faucet just as he was starting to get better, and he started drooling buckets and pulling at his ears. No teeth to show for it yet, but fingers are crossed all over the house that he will get some relief and some sleep soon. The three worst things about parenting (so far and in my opinion) are getting kids to eat, getting kids to sleep, and teething.

Anyway. It’s time for the January Stamp-of-the-Month Club! If you are looking to build your stamp collection, this is a great way to do it! This is an online club. You will receive one clear-mount stamp set and 3 completed cards and/or projects, designed by me. There will usually be one Christmas card each month (but not this month), all year long, to help you build your stash throughout the year. Along with your stamps and completed projects, you will also receive an in-depth, full-color tutorial on how to duplicate the projects and a list of supplies (including measurements) used in each project.

Here are the details:

  • The cost is $30, which includes shipping.
  • You may opt in or out each month. However, if you participate in the club for 3 consecutive months, your 4th month is only $25.
  • Each month, I will select one clear stamp set from a current Stampin’ Up! catalog or promotion priced between $14.95 and $18.95 (you will need a clear block to mount your stamps). If you don’t want the stamp set I select in any given month (or already own it), you can substitute a different set within the specified price range by letting me know in your email. You will, however, receive the cards that the other club members receive.
  • The club is open to anyone in the U.S., and you can join at any time.

This month’s set is Starburst Sayings from the Occasions Catalog. It has several sentiments with a trendy retro feel. You will receive the following three cards with your package this month:

October Stamp of the Month Club — Truly Grateful

Hi, everyone! It’s been a busy week around the Fleming house. My daughter turned three (which is impossible, since she was just born yesterday), so we had a little party for her and her friends, and my mom came to town, so we also went to the pumpkin patch and took a drive to the mountains to see the amazing fall colors.

Anyway, it’s time for my October Stamp of the Month Club. If you are looking to build your stamp collection, this is a great way to do it! This is an online club. You will receive one clear-mount stamp set and 3 completed cards and/or projects, designed by me. There will be one Christmas card each month, all year long, to help you build your stash throughout the year. Along with your stamps and completed projects, you will also receive an in-depth full color tutorial on how to duplicate the projects and a list of supplies (including measurements) used in each project.

Here are the details:

  • The cost is $31 this month, which includes shipping. Most months, the cost is $30, but the October set costs more than the sets we usually use.
  • You may opt in or out each month. However, if you participate in the club for 3 consecutive months, your 4th month is only $25.
  • Each month, I will select one clear stamp set from a current Stampin’ Up! catalog or promotion priced between $14.95 and $18.95 (you will need a clear block to mount your stamps). If you don’t want the stamp set I select in any given month (or already own it), you can substitute a different set within the specified price range by letting me know in your email. You will, however, receive the cards that the other club members receive.
  • The club is open to anyone in the U.S., and you can join at any time.

This month’s set is Truly Grateful, one of the Thanksgiving-themed stamp sets from the Holiday Catalog. I love this set! (Okay, I can say that about a lot of Stampin’ Up! stamps.) You will receive the following three cards with your package this month:

The main techniques we are focusing on are embossing using folders and coloring with markers. We are also heat embossing and sponging. And as you can see, one of the cards is an adorable (in my opinion, ha!) file folder Christmas card. I’m completely in love with this card and will use it in my selection of Christmas cards this year.

The deadline to subscribe and submit payment for October is Monday, October 21st. Reply to this post or email me to sign up, and I will contact you.

I hope you’ll join me in some stamping fun this month!

September Stamp-of-the-Month Club

Wow, what an insanely busy couple of weeks it has been! Did your kids start school, if you have kids? I have one preschool-aged kid, but we are homeschooling here, so it’s pretty much the same ol’ thing for us. But I will say that traffic for most of the day has greatly improved, and Walmart is a lot less crowded, so I’m glad school is back in session. :)

Anyway, it’s time for my September Stamp-of-the-Month Club!

This is an online club and is a great way to build your stamp collection. You will receive one stamp set (clear) and 3 completed cards and/or projects each month, designed by me. Along with your stamps and completed projects, you will also receive an in-depth full color tutorial on how to duplicate the projects and a list of supplies (including measurements) used in each project.

Here are the details:

  • The cost is $30 per month, which includes shipping.
  • You may opt in or out each month. However, if you participate in the club for 3 consecutive months, your 4th month is only $25.
  • Each month, I will select one clear stamp set from a current Stampin’ Up! catalog or promotion priced between $14.95 and $18.95 (you will need a clear block to mount your stamps). If you don’t want the stamp set I select in any given month (or already own it), you can substitute a different set within the specified price range by letting me know in your email.
  • The club is open to anyone in the U.S., and you can join at any time.
