I've been stamping for about 5 years now. Became an SU demonstrator to get my "stuff" cheaper. I've been having workshops with my 3 daughters (Sara Williams (your blog designer), Susan Liles (susiestampalot), and Nancy Cook (not on internet, but still VERY TALENTED), and some close friends. I am going to be having my first workshop for one of my new friends in March -- I am very excited and nervous all at the same time. I love your page and all the designs you've done on your cards. If you have any helpful tips, I'D LOVE TO HAVE THEM!! Congrats on 2500 and put me among them!!

One word for you blog "beautiful". I got into stamping from a friend who invited me to her Stampin Up party two years ago. I only make cards when I need them right now. Hope to collect more stuff to get into it more. Thanks, Kathy H...

I've started scrapbooking when I made a trip to Uganda and I wanted my album to be special. I went to a craft store,discovered scrapbooking and immediately knew this was what I wanted. Now I'm really addicted!
A few years later I followed a basic stamping course in that same store and since then I'm also making stamped cards.

Cathy M said...

Congrats on your hits. Your blog is beautiful and love your creative style. WOW what a sweet giveaway you have. Pick ME ME ME! I will give these goodies a loving home and will feed these stamps regularly with INK INK INK!
I love to stamp, because it takes me on of reality and when I give someone a card and a homemade item it always puts a smile on their face. That is worth all the time and money that you put in it.
Thanks for a chance.

Scrapbook Mama said...

For me its my escape, I've only started stamping a couple of months but there is something about stamping an image and turning into something that you can say WOW I did that? Then think who would get the biggest smile when you present them what you created.

Stamping/scrapbooking and card making bring out my creative side..It also makes me feel good when someone says, "Wow" you made that."..people are so appreciative when they receive a handmade card..It's fun to share with them something that i enjoy..thanks for the chance to win your great candy!!!

Well I've been a lifelong sewer, then a quilter and dollmaker. What stamping offers me that those don't is speed. You get almost instant gratification and it doesn't take months to complete even the most complicated paper project. It's a nice change for me.

I started stamping about 6 years ago when my grown daughter got into it. I told her I would never do this stuff - hm, 6 years later here I am! Between the 2 of us we could open a store!

I love to make cards. And I really love to see my vacation pictures in a scrapbook, rathern than just a plain photo album!

Patty W said...

I've just recently started to learn how to stamp! It's something that I'd really like to learn how to do and do well. For me, it's a way to soothe my soul...keep my SANITY ....my own little slice of ME time!

Thanks for the opportunity..love your blog!

Jackie said...

Stamping for me is relaxation and it allows me to be creative without having to be too artistically talented. I can't draw a stick figure but with stamps, ink and paper I can look like a real artist!

Dee in Oklahoma said...

I love to stamp and digital scrap because it is time to myself, very calming and I love the end result, a useable creation to give. I love learning new techniques...try many of them.
Thanks for the opportunity to receive these wonderful stamps and gems from Hero Arts.
Hugs, Dee in Oklahoma 8^)

Rae said...

Stamping is a creative outlet for me. I just wish I was better at actually using the cards I make. I am rather new to the scrapping but can definitely see getting addicted to that as well. I am having fun exploring your blog! Thank you for sharing your work!

Scrapping is my outlet. It is a way to remember good times. I have to create something to feel fulfilled.

Love your blog banner! Too cute!!!
My friend introduced me to stamping. I really enjoy creating different projects and giving them away.

Marilyn said...

Stamping, scrapping, sewing, quilting ... these are all things I do for myself to release all of the creativeness I have inside of me. I have always had to keep my hands busy - just can't sit and watch tv without *doing* something. Stamping also takes me back to coloring 101 in Kindergarten! Congrats on all your hits - I will visit your blog more often in search of inspiration.

Monica-FC said...

stamping and scrapping is something that I can do without my eyes that do not work so well and I love to stamp and scrap because of the ideas I get during at odd times that I just have to get it down or I will forget it. I cann add both stamping/scrapping together and they look great so I always add both both together if i can.

Deb Neerman said...

Hmm, good question!

I love to create and have always been a mixed-media collage artist.

Over the years though, I've really grown to love the elegant simplicity of card making; I think it's the smaller 'canvas' that I find so appealing. Not to mention all the yummy embellies!!

Thanks for the chance to win your uber-kewl blog candy offering!

stamp and scrape said...

Hi there. I've always enjoyed making things. As a child I loved colouring in and glueing, and I guess this is an extension of that. I love to use my hands, and take a lot of pleasure in choosing colours. Then, there's the pleasure it gives to the recipient too. It's all so satisfying, really.
Ros
Thanks for the offer.

Momsnack said...

Great banner! I enjoy stamping, particularly cardmaking and all kinds of papercrafts - I can't draw a straight line, as the old saying goes, so it give me some creative outlet.

Tejal said...

I've been stamping and making cards for just about a year now! And the only reason I do that is to preserve my sanity in this mad world. When I escape into my world of stamping, coloring and assembling the cards, its like therapy.
And imagining the joy that someone gets when they receive my card..is the best gift of all..

Thank you for such a wonderful candy!

Tejal

chica21b said...

You have a wonderful blog! I love to stamp because it's therapeutic. And it's so dang addicting! I love giving hand made cards and realizing how much the person you give it to knows how much work and thought you put into the cards or 3-d projects!

Shivani said...

I been doing cardmaking since 2-years but I love coz it brings a huge smile on someone's face..seeing some has really cared to make a special card..

I love colours & getting myself mixed into it give me immense pleasure.

Claire said...

I love to stamp because for me it lets me be creative and makes other people happy when family and friends receive my cards or crafts.

It makes me happy when I am sad or mad. It makes me calm. I love being creative and stamping allows me to do that but also see how other people can be creative with the same stamp that I have.

IMkamperstampr said...

Why do I love to stamp? hmmmmmmm it is my sanity. When things get to be more than I can handle, I go to my stamping room, close the door, and create. They say creativity is good for the soul? Well its good for my peace of mind too. Now if only I could figure out HOW to put more hours in a day so I could stamp even more. Hmmmmmmm gotta work on that.

Suzi said...

AWESOME BANNER!!! That is the downside of "feeds", you don't see the actual blog, just the new posts. So glad you posted!!

I love the the arty feel of stamping. Gives us people w/NO artistic talent the chance to be creative. I also love heat embossing; watching the powder melt into something shiny! Woohoo!

Bluemoon said...

Congratulations on your blog hits! & I too love your banner.
I love making cards for people, because when they receive it in the mail, it was unexpected. When I receive a handmade card, I feel as though it is a special gift, not just a card. Thank you :) bluemoonbynite@yahoo.com

Angel W said...

I love pretty paper. I love cards. And I love making my own cards. It's my "ME" time and allows me to let my hair down so to speak!

huntla1 said...

I stamp because I love it. Going into my craft room is like getting into the "zone" for me. When I go in, my woes just fly out the door. I love paper, stamps, embellies, color -- I just love it all. I love it just a bit too much if you look at my budget!

kimmyqtgirl said...

Love your Banner! I love to stamp, I guess because it feels so good to see the look on someone's face when you give them something you made. I love to scrap because it's a wonderful way to preserve memories, and ususally I make some while I scrap because I spend time with girlfriends. - Kimmy

tyrymom29 said...

well I love to stamp because its MY relaxing time !!! I take an hour or more to just lock myself in scraproom and STamp !!!!And to send Happy Mail to others to make them smile also !!!

mochamama said...

Why I love to stamp? Let me count the ways. hehe
I love the creativity of it, I love the therapy behind it, I love having something handmade to give someone, I am addicted to papers and colors and thus love to buy papers and ribbons and watercolors, etc etc. I love learning new techniques and I guess I love getting to organize my stamping room every week.

Jailbird said...

yeah I'm thrilled to play! I love your new blog banner!
I love stamping/scrapping -it gives me a creative outlet.

GrammaStamper (Barb) said...

The new banner is gorgeous. You are lucky to have someone that can make something so beautiful for you. Blog candy looks great. Maybe I'll win.

Deborah said...

Stamping is my therapy, my private time, my Creative outlet, my self expression, my joy!

Val said...

I'm generally not a creative person, so this is my try at being creative. It also makes me feel good!!

Jan~logcabincreations said...

Awesome banner and blog! Stamping and scrapping are stress relievers for me. Plus they are fun and rewarding. I know that someone will benefit from my creations because they are shared or given away.

shuggy said...

i love stamping because it's fun to see my creativity. i don't think i'm very creative sometimes, so when i make something fun, i realize i am! it's also a good way to escape from the world for a while!

great blog!!

Renée Storch said...

I love to stamp/scrap because it's a way to express my creativity in a positive way! And to play with all the cool things!!! Who wouldn't wanna play with ribbon, glitter, and the Cuttlebug! lol

momsforest said...

I love to stamp mainy to get together with my friends. It also takes my mind of all my problems and worries. Thanks for the awesome chance. Kathy...

Mary said...

LOVE the new look of your blog. Awesome. Okay, I love to scrap because it preserves those precious memories of my DD. I stamp because I like to keep up with my trendy friends! LOL

Mary

Kathy W said...

I started stamping almost two years ago and love it because it allows me to feel creative. I grew up not feeling very artistic (hated art in school because of being insecure), and making cards lets me play with color and shape and paper and ink and bling while having a finished product to send to friends and family. And they give me lots of positive feedback while they get mail. Thanks for the chance to win.

Anonymous said...

Hi I love your blog and what a great new banner. I began scrapbooking about 10 years ago cause it was soo much fun and I wanted to preserve my memories for future generations. I discovered stamping a few years back but have gotten deeper and deeper in it more recently. I just love crafts period, but my all time favorite is stamping/scrapbooking. :)

thanks for the contest, can't wait to check out the rest of your creations.

debbiedee said...

Melissa, I love your new blog look!! The pink and black is perfect! Looks like you are now on your way to 3000 hits!!! Woohoo! Way to go.
Let's see...what do I love about stamping/scrapping...
I love creating things for other people the most. The looks on my boys faces when they see pages scrapped of them and on other's faces when they receive something I made is gratifying and makes me want to do it all the more.

Jan Scholl said...

I have always been creative from sewing, needlepoint, painting gardening-you name it. Stamping is easy as you can grab a few things and just make something on the spot with no prep. And you have a piece of happy in your hand.

Linda SS said...

I really enjoy it because in the past my hobbies always required a lot of time to complete. This is fast and easy, and my friends and family really enjoy receiving cards from me. I feel I can give a part of myself through my creations.

Amy said...

Thanks for the opportunity! For me it is therapy. I can just escape reality for awhile and not have to think about anything else!

Cam said...

I find stamping cards relaxes me. I enjoy making cards and give them out. It's fun.

I love the instant gratification of stampsing! I am a knitter too, but it takes me forever to finish anything, and I don't like to wait. With stamping, I can sit down for just 10 or 15 minutes, and create an awsome card....done!

JoAnna said...

I love your new blog... I can not wait until Sara works on mine :) I love to do all kinds of crafts cause when i give it to someone it really makes their day and that is the best part. Thanks for a chance to win.

I love to stamp because I love coloring and working with great images but can't draw. I also love that I can complete a project in one sitting. :)

Your blog is super cute. :)

laos348 said...

Congrats on the 2500 posts! I view stamping and scrapping as a form of therapy for me. It gives me a chance to do something for me but others get to enjoy it in the end too.

Ghazal(ghazal_31005@yahoo.com) said...

I love card making as it lets me explore my creative side and relax. I love being able to make something for a friend that shows my love and appreciation for that person. Each project is special and created for someone specific in mind.
Congrats on the hits and thanks for the chance to win.

directmailscrapper said...

I started off scrapbooking, but who has the time? You have to plan and organize and it takes me a long time to finish a spread.

With staming, I can stamp today, color tomorrow, and finish a card when I have the time! My kind of project!

Kathy said...

Wow! Great candy! Thanks for offering it. For me, stamping is a kind of release. So much of what we do in the day to day grind is the opposite of creative that sometimes it's nice to work that other half of our brains! Plus, for me, it's a huge stress-reliever!

Nettie said...

Love stamping because it is a major stress buster for me. Takes my mind off work and medical issues.
