An Exciting Summer to Come!

So what’s what’s so exciting about this Summer!!!?!?  Well… there’s lots happening at StampNation in the next few months!

First of all, Catherine has revealed the newest collection of Stamp of Approval theme today!  It’s AWESOME!  Another box of goodies you will NEED to add to your stamping goodies!  Plus, Catherine has announced all of our amazing guest designers for the newest box.  Click here for more details.

What is Stamp of Approval you ask?  Well….. it’s a specially designed box of stamping & card making goodies especially made for you by Catherine Pooler! Catherine puts together a whole whack of stamps and dies that coordinate for creating cards and other stamping projects!  It’s always got something that you just can’t live without in it!  And she ships them all over the world!!

The new SOA collection goes live for purchase on July 13th!!!!  That’s just a little over 2 weeks away!  To ensure you get a crack at purchasing this box of ah-mazing goodies (‘cuz they go FAST!!), get your email on the waitlist HERE!

Catherine also has her SHOP open right now (until Friday at midnight EST) and you can purchase stamps, dies and stencils from the first 3 SOA collections, the “Friendship”, the “Holiday Magic” and the “Young at Heart” collections!  PLUS… she has added brand new DIES for “Eva’s Favorite Flowers” stamps from the Friendship collection and THREE new items of her very own, Catherine Pooler Designs.

Here are some cards using Catherine’s newest goodies, “Eva’s Favorite Flowers Dies”, “And Sentiments”, “And Dies”…

Plus I created another card featuring the new "Wild Blooms" stamp set yesterday over on Periscope.

You can check out the full scope which I posted on YouTube, HERE

Come and buy them ALL for your stash HERE!

ALSO… over at StampNation, beginning Friday, we have a FREE Summer-long event called HEAT IT UP.  It’s a course meant to teach you all about cool techniques with Heat Embossing!  The Dream Team will be posting all summer long with cool and awesome techniques, tutorials and gorgeous examples.  Come and join us for that event for July & August!
