Back to work... busy busy busy!

It's been 10 days since my last blog entry.... sigh.... Sorry about that.
We had a wonderful scrapbooking weekend. Cindy and I made 12 pages and a few cards. I'll upload them here in the days to come, and probably also upload a few to the two peas gallery. Someday I might even have time to make a gallery on my site. LOL!!

So it was back to work Monday. Lots of orders to take care of. :-) It's a good thing, but it doesn't leave much time for fun stuff like uploading our creations! Well, that's what weekends are for, right?

Below is a scan of a card I made a year ago during a card making weekend in Washington with my friend Kathy (owner of Rubberstamp Avenue) and my friend Barbara whose house we stayed at. The card uses a paper from Provo Craft as the background. The column is one of my stamps (see The "Explore" sticker is from the Junkitz Tim Holtz series ( I first applied the sticker to gold cardstock and trimmed it close, then matted it with black. The round tags are Lalique tags found at The tags don't come with letters on them... those are rub ons. Oh, and the little tag that says "the" on it is actually a brad by Provo Craft ( on which I first sanded to take most of the paint off, then used a rub on over top.

Getting ready for next weekend

What's going on next weekend? Glad you asked!!

I'm actually going to take 3 days off to go stamp and scrapbook!!!! Yes!!!
My friend Cindy and I (plus our football watching husbands) are going to the Oregon Coast. We've rented a house for the weekend, and we're going to stamp, scrap, and have a good time!

So in preparation, I've been gathering all kinds of goodies I've had my eye on. I'll tell ya... sometimes it's kind of a drag having all this cool stuff around, but no time to use any of it!!! So I hope we are proliffic this weekend!! I'll be sure to post some things here when we get home.

We leave early Friday morning. :-)

talk to you soon!

September 7, 2006 -- A quick hello

A quick little update.... it's been a busy week (*OK, when it is not*) . Last night, I added some new stuff to the site, including these great transparencies from Magic Scraps. I hear these are going to be discontinued, but I got a bunch of them. :-) I really like these a lot.

I still have sooo many new items to add to the site.... weekend is near.

Oh, I wanted to let you all know that NEXT weekend (Friday the 15th thru Sunday the 17th), I will be away. We are actually taking a couple days off AWAY from here. We're going to a beach house on the coast and taking LOTS of great new products with us. We're going to spend 2 days making scrapbook pages and cards for the website gallery.

Fun huh? I'm really looking forward to it.

See ya tomorrow!

Sept 2, 2006 --- new stuff, new stuff!!

I'm so excited.... last night, the UPS guy brought me 11 packages.

We received:
- the last bit of the new Queen & Co. stuff (cute chipboard letters, and little plastic alphabet letters).
-1 box of new stuff from Heidi Swapp (OK, not realllllly new stuff, stuff that's been on backorder... namely the roller stamps)
-4 boxes from Imagination Project (Gin-X, Chloe's Closet, etc).
-3 BIG boxes of new products from Maya Road (beautiful ribbons, great chipboards, and other neat embellishments)

So as you can see, I have my work cut out for me this weekend!! Lots of scanning and lots of adding to the site.

Now for something fun. I made the card above LAST superbowl Sunday. My friend took the time to scan a bunch of cards I made... and I'll share them with you here. They will eventually go into the planned "card gallery" on my site, with complete instructions. (when I have time, yeah... we know how that goes!!) . I'll give you some hints though... the stamp is of course from my line (, the pink background was created with Colorbox Fluid Chalk inks, the paper on the bottom layer is by Crafter's Workshop (, and the stickers used to spell Milan as well as the postoid sticker are called "Crystal Stickers". They are epoxy stickers, and those are not on my site yet (but they WILL be this weekend, I promise!!!)

Ta ta for now!

September 1, 2006 - Welcome to my blog

Welcome to my blog!

Can you believe it? I've finally joined the blog bandwagon.
It will be a challenge to find the time to write every day.... so I'm sure it won't happen every day! LOL!! But I'll do my best

Things have been very very busy at Frantic Stamper this week.

We received another HUGE shipment of EK Success stuff.... that means lots of work adding things to the site. We're now officially an Elite EK vendor, meaning we will have the opportunity to receive new items sooner than non-Elite stores. We'll also be able to do promotions on their great products, etc.

Also just in this week, a big shipment of new Making Memories items, and another BIG shipment of Creative Imaginations products.

I'll work as hard as I can to add stuff to the site this weekend, but please be patient!!! (I need to hire someone full time just to keep the site up to date, LOL!)

Oh, one more thing.... for all you dog and cat lovers, this morning I posted the September specials (see where you can see all sorts of great pet items. I've also posted a scrapbook page I made of my cat Hunter.

Soon, I will add a project gallery on my site..... soon.... sigh.....

Happy stamping and happy scrapping!
