Best of Shelli

Best of

As part of the 25-year anniversary celebration, Stampin' Up! is  bringing back some of our favorite stamp images from the last quarter century and combining them into 12 sets, which will release-one set per month-during 2013. Even better, along with some great classic images, each "Best of" set will also include a never-before-seen image!

Here is the terrific set for August – called Best of Shelli!

Best of Shelli

Item No. 133488 Best of Shelli clear $14.95

Some things to remember:

  • All Best of stamp sets will include 3-5 images, including a never-before seen image, and will be priced at $14.95.
  • While we are releasing just one Best of stamp set per month (with a new theme each month), all of the Best of sets will be available until March 31, 2014.
  • All Best of stamp sets are available in Clear-Mount only.

As a special incentive to collect the Best of stamps, we're including a collector's card and 25-year proof of purchase sticker with every Best of set. Collect six stickers, and send it in to redeem a FREE set of your choice valued up to $14.95! Free sets must be redeemed no later than April 30, 2014.

Grab your Best of Shelli stamp set in my Onine Store HERE.  Receive Kriss's Online Perks, too!  And this month, rather than a grab bag, be entered into a drawing to win 10 FULL cards!  Simply place an online order during the month of July to qualify.

And the winner is . . .

Thanks so much to all of you who left such kind comments about my blog.  It seems you most like that I give detailed instructions on how to make my cards.  And lots of you like my funky, retro color scheme!  I thought I’d share where that color choice came from!

I bought this cute little Post-It Note notebook at Target–isn’t it just darling?  It was the inspiration for designing my blog.  I mailed it to Michelle, and she designed my entire blog around it!  Isn’t she awesome?

Anyway, on to the prize giveaway!  I randomly drew a winner for the Tart & Tangy stamp set from the posted comments to "Celebrate with me!", and the winner is . . .

 . . . TexJennyWren.  Congratulations!  I’ll email you to find out your address! 

Stay tuned for another chance to win a great Stampin’ Up! product!
