Hello stampers and happy Friday to you. Gone Fishing is a fantastic bundle with a LOT of stamps and dies. It also comes with great patterned paper. After stamping all the images and die cutting with all the dies, I came to the conclusion that this bundle is great value. Not only is it perfect for masculine cards, it also is very well suited to scrapbooking and gift packaging. Let’s take a look shall we?


Gone Fishing Bundle


Here is an image of all the stamps stamped on a piece of white cardstock with the die cuts laying beside them. I do this for my Stamping Through My Stash video series on YouTube. Every Wednesday you can join me for a new Stamping Through My Stash video.

Gone Fishing Diecuts from Stampin'Up!






If you look at the next photo, you will see that these two dies make ripples in the pond. The ripples are subtle, so they really come to life when you sponge them with some colour. I used Misty Moonlight. When I get back from Norway I hope to actually make some cards with this bundle.

Some Great Inspiration


Here are a few sites that you can click on for some great card ideas. This pop-up card from Rachel Tessman is amazing. You will also love this tacklebox card from Laura Seki. Her card is not on her Facebook page, but I saw it on the Demonstrator Planning Place. If you enjoy daily inspiration, you might want to join my Pampered Stamper Favourite Finds Group on Facebook. Every day I share a “favourite find” for your inspiration.




The Catalog as an Idea Book



Do you use the annual catalog as an idea book? It really is a wonderful resource! Once you “case” (copy and share everything) a card from the catalog, you get a good start and your own creativity will start flowing. Here are a some ideas for you.

A Personal Note


Tomorrow Gerard and I leave for England and then on Sunday afternoon to the cruise ship to sail to Norway on the incentive trip. Did you know that less than 1% of demonstrators earn this trip? I feel incredibly blessed and truth be told, I did work very hard to earn it. What a wonderful feeling that Gerard finally gets to experience one of these trips.

A big thank you to all of you who have helped to make this happen. Thanks to my customers and my team members and to all of you who have shared my posts, commented on my videos and subscribed to my YouTube channel.

For the week that I am gone you will get a $5 coupon for every $25 you spend on online orders. Happy shopping!!!


Thanks for joining me today and have a super day.
