2 More Days

Hello my darling honey dumplings.  Here’s the 411 on the Online Extravaganza. Today and tomorrow and then as quickly as it came it will be GONE.  Today and tomorrow ( I’m trying to drive home that you only have about 5 1/2 hours left today and tomorrow to get these products from the Annual catalog. The items that are available are Tools and Ink. This would have been perfect for me before OnStage Live ( I’ll be sharing pictures of the swaps that I collected during OnStage after the Extravaganza).  I needed Night of Navy ink for 42 cards and saving 10% on an ink pad and reinker would have been sweet.


Think of the cards you’ll be making for the holidays a couple or three extra ink pads would probably come in handy. There is also a select group of tools that’s also available at a 10% savings. Now I don’t know if you’ve been lackadaisical about this or not, but come Thursday Miss Hammie doesn’t want to hear any “Oh woe is me, I missed the Online Extravaganza Miss Hammie , think we could maybe cut a deal?” My answer Ahhhh, no. While I might run a few specials in 2019, I practically shouted this from the rooftops. However there’s still time to get tools and ink. Now you know the deal with the link below, so use it and save 10%.

Colors, Colors, Colors

Hello my sweet dumplings and I hope that you’re having a Sassy Saturday.  As you know I’ve been away for a bit due to a family commitment. However I am back and we’re going to have a quick conversation about what’s going on with Stampin’ Up color-wise.  Its really rather simple, Stampin’ Up has done a “Color Revamp”. Please note that I said “Revamp” not “Refresh”.  We will be saying Hello to new colors, goodbye to colors we’ve grown accustomed to and welcome back to some old favorites. So in a nut shell:

It’s Still Wednesday

Hello dumplings, first no business today. I mean I’ve told you about the greatness that is Sale-a-Bration, place a $50.00 order get a free gift, the wonder of basically, if you’re a new subscriber, getting two Paper Pumpkin kits for the price of one because you get 50% off the normal price. Miss Hammie can’t get that, but you could. I’ve told you about how awesome it is to be an Independent Stampin’ Up demonstrator. The friendships you’ll make the 20% discount on future orders after you get your Starter Kit that contains items that you’ve selected. That kit where you get $125.00 worth of merchandise for $99.00 plus two extra stamp sets if you sign up by March 31st. I don’t want to sound like a worn out record, ask your Grandmother she knows what that is,  so no business today. If you would like to check out a catalog and place an order I’ll have a link below.

As Miss Hammie has mentioned she has two daughters. Their names are Miss Hammie’s Older Daughter and Miss Hammie’s Younger Daughter. Well Miss Hammie’s Older Daughter will be celebrating her birthday this week.  Since you, my sweet dumplings, don’t know her I can share the card I made her and it will still be a surprise because you can’t tell her to check it out. I’m not giving any explanations, so don’t ask “What does that mean Miss Hammie”. I use foiled paper for the card base that’s a Sale-a- Bration item you can get with a qualifying order. The Large Letters Framelits dies are in the Annual catalog and so is the Copper Foil paper. I’m sure Miss Hammie’s Older Daughter is expecting a card, I just hope she’ll be pleasantly surprised when she opens the envelope.


I promised a link to my Online Store so you can check out the catalogs and perhaps place an order so you can get this dsp for free. There are several patterns in the pack.

If the title of this post was a little confusing here’s the explanation, on Monday I said I would see you Wednesday. I got caught up with some family “stuff” so it wasn’t up this morning, but It’s Still Wednesday. TTFN

PS: here are a couple of just in case links that I, Miss Hammie, think you should seriously consider.

Stampin’ Blends Part Two

Joyeux lundi dumplings, I’m writing this on Sunday evening and I’m feeling a little punch drunk. I must say that’s surprising because today was a pretty restful day for the most part. However again Happy Monday, Joyeux lundi , Feliz lunes, lets start the week off happy. Today I’m going to share (hopefully) more information on Stampin’ Up’s new alcohol markers Stampin’ Blends which explains the title of today’s blog Stampin’ Blends Part Two. I’ve been feeling like I should get back to my foreign language studies, keep the old brain chugging along smoothly if you know what I mean. doing things like studying languages helps with memory retention, but I digress. Well not really because that explains the French and Spanish.

Stampin’ Up has put together some wonderful videos to help you get better acquainted with Stampin’ Blends and how to use them.  I thought that I would share those with you today. Stampin’ Blends are available to be purchased now along with the Color Me Happy stamp set and project kit. The kit is gorgeous, is perfect to use with Stampin’ Blends and has the most beautiful envelopes that I have ever seen. You can purchase the stamp set and project kit as a bundle and save 10% off the cost if purchased separately. If you decide after seeing how marvelous they are, how beautifully they color images and  also  how affordable they are as opposed to other alcohol markers Miss Hammie would be very pleased to be your demonstrator.  Simply go to my online store, http://rwhamilton.stampinup.net,  24/7 to make your purchases. Other items that you may need are discussed in the videos. TTFN dumplings
