USTAMP ~ Oh My Word!!

So pleased to be announcing another round USTAMP
this time it's called OH MY WORD!!
Don't miss a day of the LIVE FUN!!
Opening Day Invitations go out February 11, 2011
& the Last Project posts March 3, 2011

ok, so let's see who really reads the small print....

I have 1 FREE PASS to GIVEWAY to OH MY WORD with a twist!!

This fun challenge for me & it's a great way for all of us to make new stamping friends!!

I've been challenged to go and make a NEW friend on the internet, someone I do not know on any level.
So if you happen to be the very first person to read this & don't know me nor have ever been part of a USTAMP event in the past - then quickly post below - that you'd like that USTAMP FREE PASS & email me (link on the side bar) with your email address....

hurry, I only have 1 FREE PASS for a perfect stamping stranger, who will get a new friend (+ a whole bunch of USTAMPER friends, too) & yes, I know this sounds crazy; but hey, we stampers are a bit crazy over our paper & stamps & we love the share the FUN!! ;)

Scrappywonder's 2011 PAPERCRAFTING GOALS

lol, the following is only partly my writings - the rest is shamelessly 'stolen' from another stamper, in that CASE (copy and steal everything) way that we stampers do...

on that note,

I invite you to play along

by copying this over to your own blog or facebook page

& edit for your own goals ;)

many of us are not fond of making New Year's resolutions

(maybe because resolution seem to be doomed to failure),

so try coming up with some GOALS instead!

What are your stamping & papercrafting goals this year?

Here are mine:



In no particular order ;)

Make at least 12 Christmas & 12 Birthday cards every month.

Finish the inside of each card!!!

& Make a matching envelope.

Send out cards ON TIME (this is a hard one for me!).

Hold a monthly stamping class.

Make my class samples further in advance (don't die laughing!).

Organize & purge my stamping suppplies & the rooms they have taken over.

Keep myself & Hostess Club Girls educated in the latest techinques.

Start designing online classes &/or tutorials.

Learn more computer skills & use the MDS more.

Participate in more online color challenges, sketchs & answer more design calls...


Spend time stamping & walking everyday.

Spend more time playing & relaxing with my children.
