You know you have done this — you are looking through a Stampin’ Up! catalog and are immediately turned off from a stamp set or product suite simply because you do not like the colors — I know I have.

Today I am sharing with you a video from the fabulous Shannon West at Stampin’ Up!’s home office where she demonstrates that simply changing the colors in a project creates a whole new look!


So as the old saying goes, never judge a book by its cover.  I guess this can be applied to crafting — never judge a project by its color scheme.  I confess that I did and passed on these stamp sets / suites myself.  Now I will have to give this further consideration on whether these need to be added to my wish list (a/k/a “must have list”) … you know you have one of those too.

Over a year ago Shannon started a movement – #imbringingbirthdaysback – where she started a mailing list of everyone who wanted to receive a handmade birthday card from her.  She designed and Stampin’ Up! manufactured a custom stamp to commemorate the occasion.  I was the happy recipient of card #1859 in November 2016!

Here is a video that shows all of the cards that Shannon received on her birthday:


Join me in the birthday card revolution — make handmade cards and actually mail them out to your friends and family for their birthdays.  After all – a card is a hug with a fold in the middle.

Thank you for dropping by.  Until next time, stamp on my friends.
