Gettin' Sentimental!

Hi all!  We’re about to begin our first What’s Up Wednesday in our SCS forum, we hope you are liking the new forum changes, and we look forward to getting to know everyone better! 

Tonight we are spotlighting MFT Sentiment sets, ALL of which are on special through Friday!

I created the card above using Happiest Birthday Wishes, and really, the idea for this card spawned from a Lauren Meader creation.  I thought her idea for highlighting a sentiment set was so clever, I wanted to do something along the same line.  I am pretty pleased with the turnout!  Quick, clever and cute!

I also want to mention again that we are having a promo that will run through Sunday to benefit Alzheimer’s, you’ll get 10% off stamps during this time (YES! Even after specials!) by using the coupon code Cammie.  Read below to see the how’s and why’s, and we thank you for helping out!

Cammie's Cause

Here is a SWEET little tag Cammie created for a Craft Critique review, isn’t it precious???  As many of you know, Cammie introduced her Whimsical Autumn set through Gina K. Designs earlier this month, and is donating all her proceeds to an Alzheimer’s charity in memory of the Grandmother she lost to this disease a few months back.  

My Father suffered from Dementia, of which Alzheimer’s is a form, during the last few years of his life.  It was truly painful to watch him morph into someone so completely different and unreachable. I really have empathy for those whose loved ones are afflicted, it is so overwhelming.

Cammie is having a HUGE blog candy extravaganza in honor of National Alzheimer’s Day on Sept 21st. Be sure to check it out!

I thought I’d like to help raise some funds as well in support of the cause, so what I’ve decided to do is two-fold: 1) Starting tomorrow, I am offering a 10% discount on ALL stamps on the site. Use the coupon code Cammie at checkout to receive 10% off all the stamps in your shopping cart. (It won’t discount your other merchandise, just stamps.) The coupon code will run from Wednesday, Sept 17th to Sunday, Sept 21st. 2) I will donate 10% of ALL proceeds (including money spent on other items on the site) to the National Alzheimer’s AssociationFYI – The discount applies only to retail orders…

I would also invite you to listen to a song that I have played hundreds of times since my Dad passed, and even though it’s written from a female perspective, it really gets to the heart of what loving someone with a memory condition means.  It’s called Silent House and there are two artists versions, one by Crowded House and one by Dixie Chicks, both are wonderful and I wholeheartedly encourage you to take a listen.

Did You See This?

Paula W. created this Branch Out as part of her Sept Guest Designer stint, and I wanted to make sure everyone got a second look at this baby.  Isn’t it LOVELY????  Oh my, I just about fell over when she posted it, and it wasn’t just from the Appletini I was enjoying during the party, no, it was from sheer paper poetry!

I keep trying to get her to come to FL for some one-on-one coloring tutorials, but haven’t managed it just yet.  I did manage to snatch her up for the team though…yay us!!!

Don’t forget our new MFThemed Forum Days start Monday, Sept. 15th and Rain or Shine is on special through the 15th since you’re gonna have to have it after you see all the beautiful samples on Monday.  On Friday, you’ll need Hearts Galore, and it’s currently being retired so is a special deal already!

Stamping Furniture Options!

Hey all!  I know this is a smallish pic of the brochure, but I wanted to post some info on a recent storage solution I found.  I have the large double craft pantry, and love it!  It works really well, and since it comes in unfinished wood, hubster stained it to match the rest of my office furniture.  I’ve never found such affordable stamping storage, so wanted to share it with all of you!

The company is made up of a husband and wife team, and they are just the nicest folks.  Feel free to pass this along to all to all those space challenged stampers you know!

Rain or Shine, we've picked our winner!

I made some time today to play with Rain or Shine, following this weeks sketch challenge and in celebration of the new MFThemed Forum Days beginning on Monday, Sept 15th.  The very first themed day, Who’s That Girl? Monday’s (hosted by Laura and Toni), will feature Rain or Shine, so from now until Sept 15th, it’s on sale!  Check out the site for it’s special price.

I started with a base of Memory Box Vanilla Bean, then used the Chillin’ 2 Paper Pack for my trio of squares.  The papers in the packs are extremely versatile, which I really appreciate!  

Our Sept Guest Designer, Paula W., made such an impression with her unbelievable colored pencil work, that it inspired me to dig mine out and use them for this image.  She also inspired me enough to invite her to join us!  GIve her a shout out and take a gander at her gallery, and her creations for September!

I also wanted to announce the winner of the $50 Gina K. Designs gift cert, #136 Michelle!   Email me for deets at kim@mftstamps.com.  From what I hear, Cammie’s set is doing quite well, so you might wanna snatch it up before it sells out!
