Announcing Up North Stamp-a-Stack Online Retreat!

It’s fun to visit different regions of the world and without leaving your home is a bonus! I am partnering with Elizabeth Green from Canada to bring you an Up North Online Retreat featuring the Snowflake Splendor Suite. Can you identify our rolled o’s during our presentations? Since we are both from Up North, I can hear the Up North accent during video playback. I don’t think I sound like that in person:)

We have decided on a Stamp-a-Stack theme to get the most out of shipping costs. The snowflake designs can be used for many different occasions too: thank you, thinking of you, birthday, winter holiday greetings and just because! Your retreat includes 40 make-n-take packets, 10 each of the 4 designs shown in the photos below, a pillow gift and thank you note.

After the retreat is over, a pdf tutorial of all the make-n-take projects and the bonus, surprise demonstration will be emailed to you so you will have all the dimensions and supplies used to recreate the projects in your stamp space.

Please Note: you will need to use your own stamps, inks, adhesives, dies and embossing folders to finish the kits. The snowflake die cut shapes are not included but the paper for you to cut the shapes is included. Links are below to order these additional products.

Content will be broadcast via Youtube, Zoom and a private Facebook group. Please make sure you can access Zoom and join the private Facebook group for the best experience. The Zoom link will be sent a few days prior to the event. An invitation to join the private Facebook group will be sent once your registration has been paid. If you can only access Youtube and have an email address to send the pdf tutorials to, you are still welcome to join us!

I’ll send a PayPal invoice promptly according to your attendee status: $80 retreat fee OR $75 retreat fee because you placed a $50 or more order prior to registering using host code 4YSA3BG4 at my online store here OR $75 retreat fee for Super Awesome Stampers Team members.

Twas the Night Before Stamp Saturday, oops, it’s here!

I composed this short poem as my day was wrapping up yesterday and shared it in the One of a Kind Facebook group. Since it was the last thing I did, I forgot I could share it on my blog too:)

“Twas the Night Before Stamp Saturday,” an original poem composed by Shirley Merker, Super Awesome Stamper

Twas the night before Stamp Saturday, and all through the house,

the dust bunnies were not scared, in fact, they were going to a Ball.

A Ball you say? An in-person event? No, not quite.

This Ball requires a clear stamp space with ink pads, markers and stamps lined up.

Ready for the next demonstration? You got that right!

Snacks on the side, with the dust bunnies keeping company way in the back.

We are ready for Stamp Saturday, now I bid you a Good Night!

Stamp Saturday is here will my presentation at 2pm central time in the One of a Kind Virtual Event Facebook group. Join the group to see my video and the scrappy strip technique demonstrated. I’ll share assembly tips on the other designs too as time allows. I’ll be sharing in depth how to videos in the coming days on my business Facebook page as well. Search for Super Awesome Stamper Shirley Merker and you have found me.

If you are visiting my blog today for the Show Special, here it is…I am celebrating 17 years as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator today. So offering 17 pdf tutorials seemed like an appropriate way to celebrate!
