I'm Back with Great Blog Candy to Boot

Hi Stampers!

It's been many months since I've posted.  Life has just been a little crazy and extremely busy.  Both my husband and I had some health issues, as well as our grandson (who we have custody of) returned home after being in a residential treatment facility for children with mental health issues.  (He has bipolar disorder).  Anyway -- I'm back!

I began looking over my blog and noticed that it had been really neglected.  There are links that are old and posts that are messed up.

Here's an example of what I'm talking about:

  • Under "Hostess Resources" the link for Hostess Benefits Chart and Stamp Sets is from an older catalog.  It does not show the current Hostess benefits.
  • On the post for 6-18-2010 the photos I had there are now X's.  At the time I had used Clipmarks for that post.  Clipmarks no longer exists, so those photos don't show any longer.
It will take me some time to find all the broken, incorrect or irrelavant links and posts.  Here is where YOU come in:

I am offering an amazing blog candy!  How would you like to win the entire collection of the new Regals firm foam pads?  That's all 10 full size ink pads!  It's a $49.95 value!



So, how do you win it?  Well, you will have to do a little detective work.  Browse my blog - look at the links, the past posts -- basically everything!  Make a list of all the things that need to be fixed - broken or incorrect links, posts with missing photos, etc.  Look for whatever needs to be fixed or updated.  The person who finds the most mistakes will win the blog candy!

If this is a contest, you shouldn't be able to see everyone else's answers, right?  So, here's what we'll do.  Comment on THIS post with the number of mistakes you have found.  THEN e-mail me at Lisa@TheStampCampCounselor.com and put "Blog Candy" in the subject line.  In the e-mail, list all the inaccuracies that you have found.

You will be able to tell by the comments posted how many errors people are finding, so you can step up your detective work.

The contest will close at midnight on Friday, December 14, 2012. 
On Saturday, December 15th, I will announce the winner and the where they found all the mistakes. 

Then, I can begin to work on fixing my blog and bringing it back up to date.  I also intend to do regular posting again.

So -- get looking for those errors!   Good Luck!

New Firm Foam Ink Pads

It has been a long time since I've posted.  Life just seems to get in the way sometimes.  LOL

I am so excited about Stampin' Up!'s NEW Firm Foam Classic Ink Pads.  The coverage is incredible!  You get a perfect image, even on bold stamps, by just lightly tapping the stamp on the pad.

I know you're going to love these new Stampin' Pads! Just look at all the exciting benefits listed below:
  • Provide better ink coverage for your stamps! 
  • Light-tap stamping produces flawless images!
  • Pad stays juicier for longer resulting in better ink pad longevity! 
  • Have a crisply printed, glossy label on the top of the pad that is easier to read and that will not fade or chip off! 
  • Come with color name labels in all four languages (English, Spanish, French, and German)-just choose your language, peel it off the back, and add it to the side of the pad for easy identification! 
  • Use the same patented flip-top case design that stores the inking surface upside down, so the pad surface stays moist! 
  • Are available in all colors, including our exclusive In Colors!
Here's Shannon West from the Stampin' Up! Home Office as she discusses the new firm foam Stampin' Pads in the video below.


Please note: Five ink colors have undergone formula changes to improve functionality and color stability with the new firm foam pads. These colors are:
  1. Basic Black 
  2. Basic Gray 
  3. Marina Mist
  4. Perfect Plum 
  5. Tempting Turquoise
All five colors of the reformulated inks have been fully tested and approved. While using the new ink formula in the old Stampin' Pads is fine, we do not recommend using the old ink formula in the new firm foam pads.

Additional features you'll love:
  • The firm foam is nice and flat and will not become wavy.
  • The firm foam material does not imprint on the stamp images like the felt pad sometimes did. However, because the firm foam material is a foam base material, the stamp image can momentarily leave an imprint on the pad, which can transfer to a second stamped image. By inking your stamp on different areas of the pad or waiting momentarily for the ink to rise back to the top, you can easily avoid this situation. 
  • The firm foam material is soft and has a nice bounce to it. It’s not hard like the felt is.
  • The ink lay-down (how the ink is absorbed into the card stock) is even, not blotchy, and dries quickly. It has an increased opacity and stamps solid images beautifully.
