Sue said...

My daughter got me into stamping about 2 years ago. I am a SU "hobbiest" demo so that she and I can enjoy this together. She is the one that introduced me to your website as well and I have been a loyal viewer now for several months. Love your style and the great inspiration you give me. You are so generous with all the icandy too. Such fun!

Cynthia said...

Wow what great candy and congrats on all the hits.
1) I have been stamping for 11 years
2) No I'm not a Demonstrator but I know enough to be one
3) Yes. Your in my Google Reader so anytime you post a comment it comes up.
4)Some of the challenges with lots of layers are difficult to make in a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card. Do you ever make a 5x7? Other than Split coast which fourms do you visit?

M Fosco said...

Hi Nancy - Thank you for the chance to win so much icandy!! This is my 2nd year stamping and I love all the Stampin UP products but I'm not a demo. I check your blog every day and love everything you post - I don't always get a chance to leave a message as I'm checking from the office/work :( You are very talented and an inspiration to the rest of us --and all those hits prove it!!

Cris A said...

I've been stamping for almost 1 1/2 years
I am not a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, but love, love, love all the wonderful projects that demonstrators share
This is my first trip to your blog, stumbled upon it from a Tart and Tangy bag and card set, from Simply Pink to Treasure Oiler Designz. I'll be back!
4) I'm horrible at cutting, it seems I never get things straight. Any tricks you can share?

Katherine said...

2) no I am not Stampin' Up! Demonstrator
3) Yes, I have been to your blog before

Thanks for the chance at blog candy. Carole

karenstamps@hotmail.com said...

Thanks for a chance to win such fun candy! I have been stamping for almost 5 years and have been a demonstrator for about that long. I've been to your blog before and I have no questions right now :-)

Tammy said...

I have been stamping for about 7 years...but only a tiny bit before the last 6 months. Now I have EXPLODED in this hobby and bought a ton of stuff and am starting a card company! It's such a blessing.
I belong to a SU group and love it.
Hope to become a SU demo one day.

Melanie Welch said...

Wow!! congrats on 200,000 hits!! I was excited to get to 15,000! LOL

Stampinchic said...

Yea! Blog Candy...I love it (haven't had any..but its always fun to play!!) I have been a SU demonstrator for 3 years, but am so underqualified...I pretty much have a group of girls in a club that keeps me going. I don't really know how to get "out there" and have bookings. Thats okay though, I have fun with it. I did just recently start a blog...so I am new to that world too but *confession* I have visited your blog tons! You are so fun and creative... I rarely comment but thanks for all you do! I love your stuff!

Perrie said...

I do check your blog frequently...you have INCREDIBLE ideas!!! I am a self-taught card maker and have been doing it for approx. 5-8 years now. I do not do the blog thing for myself, just enjoy perusing others for motivation. No real question (at this moment!) but watch out--!!! That is AWESOME that you have had so many "hits"!!!!

Mauna said...

Go Nancy!!!!
I have been stamping for about a year. I joined SU in Feb 08 under the most awesome lady!! I go to your blog daily.
Question: Have you started adoption papers yet? :-)

Anonymous said...

Hi Nancy!

I am not a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, but I have been stamping for 12 years. I got started at a D.O.T.S. demo party. I got my best friend addicted, too, because that's what friends do! We both said we'd NEVER use Stampin' UP! stamps because you had to cut them and mount them yourself! Now she has about 115 sets, and I have 30! So you can tell we've fallen in love with Stampin' Up! Most of that is due to our local demonstrator who always gives us new ideas and shows us so many things we decide we really want to have! I love your cards -- I check your Blog almost every day! My question is: From where do you get your ideas? Are you just a naturally wonderfully creative person?

Jocelyn said...

Hi! Thanks for the chance to win an icandy and congratulations on 200,000 hits! It's not surprising since you have such a beautiful blog and you sound like a really wonderful person. I'm not really a stamper (I stamp a little here and there, maybe about a year now) but I would love to be a "real stamper" someday. :D
Question: What basic materials should I start with? Since I'm a beginning stamper, what should I use - color pencils, markers, watercolor pencils, chalk, etc?

Mauna said...

Okay Nancy----Here is my link

hi love the icandy! congratulations!

I have been stamping on and off the past 3 years. I admit I am a supply hoarder. I am not a demo but have been thinking about it. But since I just gave birth last week. I think I have my hands full. I can't remember how I came across your blog. Your work is very inspiring.

I've been thinking of purchasing the SU scallop punch. I have the marvy yellow and blue scallop punch. Is the SU punch size in between these 2 punch sizes?

Thanks

I love your site & visit daily.

I became "addicted" to stamping about 4 yrs. ago.

I'm not a Demo...(95% of my stamps,ink,papers etc are S/U) I don't know if I would enjoy it as much, if it was a job.

Do you feel pressure being a Demo opposed to it being a hobby.

Amy said...

What a clever thing...iCandy! I love it!

Your blog is great and you have some wonderful creations. It was my first time to visit but it won't be my last. i am going to add you to my google reader! :)

I have been stamping about 4 years and I have been a SU demo for 9 months.

I'd love to know more about your classes, like demo details. How do you advertise, what do you charge, what are your most popular classes? I have a monthly club and they are my main customers. I'd like to offer classes and expand my business a little!

Holy crow! I am late to the party! I am not a demo but I have been stamping for about three years now (seems so much longer!). I have been to your blog before...I used your tutorial here: http://stampinat6213.blogspot.com/2007/07/quilt-card-tutorial.html

Remember that? I think it was like last summer sometime...however, all the days tend to bleed into one in blog-o-land!

Thanks Nancy!

I've been stamping since High School and believe me that is to many years ago to mention.

I try and check out your blog everyday, or at least every other day.
Thanks,
Sandy

Demonstrator for couple of years now but as far as stamping - that has been since I was in elementary (many moons ago!). What I enjoy about your blog is that your pictures are fabulous, your instructions are clear and your ideas are just awesome! I'm so glad I found your blog. :) Lorna in Hawaii

I love the look but am not sure how they work. are they run through the cuttlebug or do they have a machine of their own? thank you

Kat said...

I LOVE your blog! I find so many fun things to try. I have been stamping for about two years and I have been a Demo for SU for 1 1/2yrs. Your blog is in my favorites folder so I guess that means I visit it often!!

It's no wonder you've had so many hits, you have a great blog! Congrats! I have been stamping for at least 10 years. I would have saved alot of money if I were an SU demo. Subscribed to your bog the first time I found it. My question for you is how do I stop spending time reading blogs and start atamping instead?

Linda McClain said...

Congratulations on 200K - as I type this I see you're wel on your way to 300K. I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator almost as soon as I learned about stamping - I fell in love with it immediately, and that was 1 1/2 years ago. I also fell in love with your blog the first time I visited it and come back every chance I get. My question - where do you see yourself with stampin' this time next year. Isn't it fun to dream?

Lori said...

Nancy

I am not surprised by the number of hits you've rec'd. Your blog is fantastic and your cards are an inspiration to us all!

I've been a demo for 11 mo, been stamping just about 18 months. I've been to your blog many, many times :0)

Have a great day!

Fun blog candy! I love your blog and look at all the posts for your creative genius! Thanks for all you do!
I have been stamping for about 13 years, a SU demo for 5 years and as I said above I'm always at your blog (kind of a blog stalker, i'm terrible for not leaving comments...although i'm usually reading blogs as I nurse my son!). Congrats on 200K woohoo!!!

szbacn1 said...

Great Candy! I've been stamping for about 5 years and am a Stampin' Up hobby demo for the second time. Most of my creative time goes into making cards. I've been meaning to start scrapbooking for the past 3 years and have been "collecting" papers, stickers, and you-name-its but have yet to have the courage to make a single page, lol! I'm going to a crop this Saturday and I'm determined to get started! Thanks!

Anonymous said...

Love your blog which I just found recently. I've been stamping for years and have been an SU demonstrator for almost 2 years. I would someday like to start a blog of my own.

Anonymous said...

I have been stamping for about 5-6 years. I am not a SU consultant but my next door neighbor is and she keeps me up to date on everything. I love the cards which you post and look forward to receiving them.

Kandi said...

I love your blog and have been a reader for almost a year.

I have been stamping for about 10 years off and on, and no I am not a SU demo, and I do not have a blog. Maybe someday....

I think I struggle with doing layers of different pattern paper, and I love pattern paper and have a hard time using plain cardstock.

Hope I win!!!

Primitive Seasons said...

Hi! In answer to your questions, I have only been stamping about a year, I did join SU during SAB, I have visited your blog many times and thoroughly enjoy your work.

Melissa said...

I have been stamping on and off for 8 years. I am not a demo. I check your site once a day(sometimes twice). I mostly look at the set then try to get as many different cards from it. It sort of evolves. plus I like to look at blogs and get ideas.

Congratulations on so many hits! I've been stamping for about 3 years and am a cardmaker, no scrapbooking. That would mean I'd have to actually print all the pictures I take! I'm not a SU demonstrator although people keep telling me I should become one so I could take advantage of the perks! I check out your blog every day and love it; thanks for the chance to win such yummy blog candy! I don't have a blog, so I can't link your post :-( but I'd sure like to win!

Mecah Dow said...

Generous offering of iCandy! I have been stamping for about 5 yrs. I blame it all on my daughter. She drug me to a Creative Memories scrapbooking series about 7 years ago. Then our CM demo invited us to a SU! workshop, and the rest is history. So is my pocketbook! I am not a demo, but my DD is, and I'm her best customer. I subscribe to your blog, and love your creations.

Congratulations! I have only been stamping for like two days! My future MIL used to stamp and mentioned it to me, so I've been stamping blog obsessed lately, and a couple days ago I borrowed some stuff from her and tried it out for the first time! I've never been to your blog before today. A question I've been having, as a newbie to all this; what kind of markers are best for coloring in stamps? And the most economical!

Hilmarose said...

CONGRATS!!!!!! I have only been stamping a few months. Your blog is one of the first ones I found when I went looking for cards and altered items! I subscribe thru bloglines so so I read every post you make. I would like to be a demonstrator one day.

SUPER blog candy!!

I LOVE what you girls did with the calculators! SOOOOO VERY CUTE!

Now on to answering your questions:

I have been stampin for 18 years and yes I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I have been for the last seven years.

How did you get the courage to start your blog and how did you pick your blog name?

I would also like to know how you found such a SUPER group of stampers to swap with????

Mommy Poulsen said...

1) About 3 years

4) Do you have layouts on your blog, or just cards?

deb said...

I love your blog. I stamp once in a while but i would like to more often. I buy stamps where ever I see ones I like. I love your water bottles, what a great idea.

debbrowne@rogers.com......just in case im the lucky winner, but probably not I never win anything.

thanks again

Days Down Under said...

CONGRATULATIONS on hitting a milestone - you are one popular blogger which is understandable :)

I learned to stamp on my own 10 years ago and my original Christmas cards were a disaster!

I am not a Stampin Up! Demo.

I subscribe to your blog and visit as soon as I receive an email :)

My questions for you ....

How many hours do you spend stamping in a day or week? How long do you spend writing your blog and visiting other blogs? Do you work outside of the home? Are you involved in community activities?

What are your top three favorite stamp sets? three tools? three accessories (ribbon etc.) and why?

Thanks so much for sharing your talent and creations with us all.

Eli said...

Love you blog and I will share with you that I check it several times a week. Always such cute ideas that get the mind going. I've been stamping for over 5 years now and it's one of my most favorite hobbies. I'm not yet a demonstrator as I am in Nursing school, but it will be my graduation present to myself! I can't wait!! My questions are those of quite the blogging newbie (I don't have my own yet) but what do "CASE" and "RAK" stand for?! I feel so silly but I honestly don't know what they mean!!

Thanks again for being such an inspiration! :)

Eli :)

I have visited your blog everyday since I found it a months ago but I don't think I've left more than one comment. I'm just figuring out all this blog stuff and wasn't really sure how many comments people really wanted to read!! LOL I have been stamping for about 17 years and seriously stamping for about 10. I am a SU! demo. I started as a hobby demo about 6 years ago but have been doing stamp camps/classes for about 6 months now.
Keep up the great blog!

I've been a subscriber to your blog for a bit. I love your creations. I've been creating cards for about 4 years I think. I was hooked from the word "go". I feel like I'm still learning. Some people are naturals. I'm not, but I love giving it a try. I think I've gotten better.

I have been stamping with SU for about 2 1/2 years. I love SU for its CS, matching inks, and markers. I am a huge fan of wood mounted. I go to your blog on a daily basis to read about your family and also to get ideas for my own cards. I do not sell cards I just love making them and giving them to friends for ocassions or to use for their own personal use. I am not a SU demo, I would rather just buy the stuff from someone else and enjoy playing.

I don't have a question, I would like to just say please keep on blogging and posting the beautiful cards you make.

Wow Nancy,
Congrats on the big number. I love your blog!

I was introduced to stamping at an SU party with Becky Roberts in 2006. I am not a demonstrator. I visit your blog daily. :)

Hi,

What a cool milestone! I've been stamping almost 4 years with SU. Love it! I'm not a demo, although I've flirted with the idea a lot. I subscribe to your blog and really enjoy your projects. I like your clean stamping style!

Nancy, I just became a Stampin Up demo. I can support my demo-ship just on my personal use! I started stamping in 2006, since I am the 'anit-craft' nobody is more shocked than me!
I have your blog on my favorites list. You have great ideas to share with us. I love that you share your time and ideas doing this!

2. I am now an SU demo (signed on 3-2008)

4. What do you do when you get in a creating "funk" ? How do you get out of this ? (I am asking b/c I am IN ONE!).

Thanks so much for the chance to win some goodies and congrats on your bloggy hits. Look forward to seeing more of your creations!!!

I love your blog, always full of fresh fun ideas. I am a former SU demonstrator, still addicted and loving SU. I have been stamping since drumb roll 1981..back in the day when stamps were hard to find..we have come a long way....I have over 300 SU sets and when I get a new set, I flip it over on the copier and make a copy of the stamps in the case. I put that in the bottom of the case and that way anybody that uses my stamps knows where to return each stamp. I can also track to make sure everything is back in its place when we are done stamping together.
