40,000 Hits Blog Candy

Hey there Stampers!

I just wanted to announce a little Blog Candy.

I've just made it to 40,000 in celebration I have put together a little pack of goodies.

The pack includes:

- Six 6" x 6" squares of the new Stampin' Up! Goodmorning Sunshine Designer Series Paper (one each of the six patterned double-sided sheets);

- Six 6" x 6" squares of textured Stampin' Up! cardstock (one of each of the six new In Colours for 2009-2010: Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette and Tangerine Tango)


- Twelve A5 rectangles of plain Stampin' Up! cardstock (two of each of the six new In Colours for 2009-2010 - please note that A5 equates to half an A4 sheet of cardstock).

All you need to do to be entered into this blog candy competition is leave a comment here stating what you love about new catalogue time with Stampin' Up!. Is it the anticipation? Is it the beautiful new catalogue cover? Maybe you are hoping for a particular stamp set or accessory...just leave a comment and let me know. I don't mind if you are a demo or not, or where you are from.

Comments need to be left here prior to 5 pm Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time on Sunday 29th March 2009, and I will post the winner on my blog shortly therafter.

Hey Sam. Congratulations on hitting the big 4-0 (thousand hits). Awesome stuff.

What I love about new catalogue time is the new catalogue with all the new stamp sets and DSP and accessories, especially the accessories...and...wondering if your favourites for the US catalogue are going to be there.

Hi Sam! Love checking out your blog every week and your creations are always fabulous. Congrats on hitting 40,000! That's phenomenal!

As for what I love about new catalogue time, this is my first new catalogue, so it's the new stamp sets that has me excited. Am counting down the days! I might have to get up at an early hour to stalk my local demo on 1st April! :)

Congrats on your blog!
I am really looking forward to the new catalogue for many reasons! One main reasons is to see all the new stamp sets that are coming! There have been some great stamps that I have seen on US blogs that I would LOVE to have, so I can't wait to see if they make it into our new catalogue!
Thanks for offering the blog candy!

Congrats Sam! That's a great accomplishment but I'm not suprised cos your blog is just fab! I hate getting rid of stamp sets but it's nice cos then when the new catalogue arrives you get to jump around and get excited about all the new stuff that is available. My partner had to take the catalogue off me so I would calm down! LOL!

Precioso Designs said...

Wow 40,000! Congratulations!
It is the anticipation for the new catalogue to see the new stamps, punches and whether there will be
stampin write markers sold individually.

Also to check out all of the card designs and projects for new ideas.

Cant wait!

Hi Sam,
Congratulations on your fantastic Blog Milestone - great achievement!

I hope you're as excited as I am at new Catalogue time.
I was hoping to see some particular stamp sets in the new catalogue and my wishes came true tonight - they're all in there except for one floral one. Now, to start my Wish List ....... :-)

Hope you're having fun shopping too and thanks for the chance to win some Blog Candy.

Congrats on having 40,000 hits!! Mind you, I am not surprised as being one of your followers, I love to check out what your latest creation is. Thanks for the inspiration!
New catalogue time is the anticipation of knowing that whatever I choose, there will be EVERYTHING I need to co-ordinate with it. It's a complete package - that's what makes Stampin' Up so unique.

HI Sam,

hmmm I think it has to be speculation about what is in the new catty. This time I plan to pay more attention to the actual examples in the catty too.

Great giveaway

Thanks Kim

Robyn said...

The whole catalogue is what I get excited about. Seeing if the great sets we see on the American sites are going to be in this year will be probably top of the list.

Congrats on your hits, so enjoy your blog and your creations. Keep up the good work.

PS don't enter me in the candy draw & once again CONGRATULATIONS!

Congrats! 40K is huge!!

Our catty doesn't come out until July, but I am already excited. I hope to see some cute baby stamps or some more retro sets.

I blogged about your candy:


Brooke S said...

I miss you! We need your crafting genius back at Cinema Saturday..

My favorite thing about New Catty time is finding out what the new in-colors are, What new stamps I can't live with out. What new punches I have to have. I also enjoy seeing all the new project others come up with.


Abby said...

I love reading your blog! Your cards are so fresh and bright. I am new to the stamping thing, so new catalogue time is time for me to see all of the products people talk about in their blogs along with Stampin Up's descriptions. Also a time to get ideas from the samples.


Jodie said...

Hi Sam,

Congrats on 40000 hits on your blog. Keep up the inspirational work.
There's lots to love about the new catalogue, new stamps,punches and in colours. But for me its the first time I sit down and pour over the pages at length and enjoy a little bit of me time.
Thanks for chance to win.

Kristie said...

WOW! Big congrats on all the hits's not a surprise though...your blog rocks :)

I love the anticipation of waiting for the catty to arrive and then the lovely hours spent going through it making lists of what I MUST have and what I'd like to have...LOL. I must admit that coming home from hospital to find my new catty waiting for me was the best treat I could have thought of and it's been a fantastic distraction :)
