Stamp Simply Christmas HOP & SALE

Welcome to our Stamp Simply Christmas Blog Hop and Sale!

Yes, we have arrived at our new home in Tajikistan. All is well (more about it all in a future post), but most of my stamping items are still in transit! I wanted to play along today, but will only be able to do so with previous samples that I created...so sorry! So, if you are dealing with hot and steamy weather right now, how about checking out these crisp, refreshing Christmas ideas for a bit of relief? There's also something "sweet"--details to follow!

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store needs more space for incoming product. Some of the Christmas items currently in stock are being offered at reduced prices to clear those shelves. Today the Design Team is here to inspire you in the creation of your Christmas projects, and with the papers and some of the other items in use being offered at SALE prices, what better time to stock up than now!!! Sale prices are in effect while current inventory lasts -- when it's gone, it's gone -- so sorry.

Here are some of the items that I had previously made up with items from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store:
















This is a Mystery Blog Candy (pictured above in the banner photo), meaning the winner will be drawn from comments on one of today’s participating blogs, so leaving a comment on each blog will greatly increase your chances of winning, but only one comment per blog, please. The winner will be selected at 6 p.m. Eastern time on Monday, August 22 and will be posted on Sharon's blog on Monday night or Tuesday, so please check back to claim your prize if you are the lucky winner!




Be certain to check each of these stops for Christmas inspiration:

Sharon Johnson - The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store
Holly McMillen
Barb Schram
Linda Duke
Michelle Woerner
Deb Saaranen (you're here, thanks for stopping!)

I really appreciate your patience during my absence...I look forward to designing up a storm as soon as more supplies arrive...I will also be posting pictures of Dushanbe. Hope to see you back here then!

WONDERFUL and Beautiful projects! I especially love the Gift bag (I love deer) and I simply adore that last card, another fav...snowmen and plaid!

Traci S. said...

Oh Deb! How wonderful to hear from you! I remember most of these projects as if they were from yesterday! I love them! I think that the snowman on the first card has a mischievous look in his eye or smile. Love that card! My favorite is the one with the Graphics 45 gold and ivory paper. Could anything be more beautiful...other than the person sending it? I think my favorite paper is used in the last card shown. It is so versatile, the colors are vibrant...and that stamp is so cute! The "dear" bag has been one of my Favorites of yours since you made it...I remember when I saw it. It was the first time I realized how wonderful a bag could look...for any occassion!!

Sorry your new supplies haven't reached you yet...can't run out to the local Michaels? LOL At least you have had some time to set up your home...where if you had all of these fabulous new things...you may have been distracted! (Trying to find the silver lining!) God bless you and yours, Deb!

He IS Able!
