Be Jolly – Stampganza

Stampganza is like Christmas in July, right?  Buy two stamp sets get the third for free…it’s almost like Santa is letting you pick what you put under your tree.

Don’t miss getting the Be Jolly stamp set that was brought out of retirement just for Stampganza this month.  It’s a terrific set of 4 Christmas/Winter themed sentiments to add to either the inside or outside of your cards.

Here I’ve paired it with some Glacier B&T from the Fundamentals line and adorned it with a little silver shimmer trim.  One Christmas card saved for the stash!

Enjoy the Little Things – Stampganza

Wow!  It’s Wednesday already…where does time go?

I’ve been having a blast showcasing the stamp sets that were brought back from retirement this month for Stampganza.  Enjoy the Little things with it’s cute flowers and little tag sentiment reminding us to enjoy the little things.


My 3X3 card was random stamped with the flowers in Glacier, Thistle and Lemon – notice how my random stamping is done in a triangular pattern – it really makes it an organized random 🙂  stamping off the page is good too!  Most of the time I start with a larger piece of paper and then cut it down to the size I need for my card.

Better with a Friend – Stampganza

Happy Tuesday!  Better with a Friend is another retired Hostess Rewards set that has been brought back for Stampganza this month.


I love the girls in this set…two shoppers and a dog walker!  I knew right that I was reaching for the Little Dreamer paper pack and all it’s pinkness for this card. My Shin-Han touch twin markers made quick work of the coloring and what girl doesn’t love red shoes!

If you’d like to purchase the Better With A Friend stamp set you can find it here along with the other Stampganza stamps that were brought back for this special.

Thanks for stopping by…I hope you’ll take the opportunity to leave a comment.


You Only Live Once – Stampganza

Happy Monday!  As I mentioned on Saturday it’s Stampganza during the month of July and Close to My Heart has brought a number of popular stamp sets out of retirement.


You Only Live Once was a hostess rewards stamp that I fell in love with and along with many others have become “keepers” in my never ending supply of stamps.  The sentiments just ring so very true.

I love this floral pattern from the Prickly Pear papers…just sweet in my humble opinion.

If you’d like to order this set you can find it here…along with the other stamps that have been brought back.  July is a great time to stock up on your stamps – buy two get the third free.

Thanks for stopping by…let me know which retired stamps are your favorites.
