My Stampin’ Therapy

Wow!  What a week! I hope you all are staying home and staying healthy! We had to drive to Georgia (2 days each way) to pick up our daughter and move her and all her stuff back home. She would have been graduating in May; however, they have cancelled the graduation and she will have online classes for the remainder of the semester. As we all adjust to the changes in our life one thing we can all do to make a difference is make cards and send cards! Not only is stamping great “therapy” but there are others that need some happy mail now more than ever. A friend of mine works at a nursing home and shared that the residents are anxious and miss having visitors. I have been working on making cards for them. I know it won’t compare to having their loved ones visit but hopefully it will bring a smile to their face knowing that others are thinking of them and care as well! I have been going through my past paper pumpkin kits and using up my extra refill kits, leftover embellishments, etc. These kits make for some quick & easy cards when you need to make many (or a few). I just added some Stampin’ Up note cards & envelopes to create all these cards! . Here’s a look at what I’ve made so far.

For April, Stampin’ Up! created a fun, family appreciation themed card kit that would make it easy for others to share their hearts with those they love most: mom, dad, daughter, son, sister, and brother. April’s kit even includes Mother’s Day and Father’s Day sentiments, giving you the perfect way to show your appreciation for beloved parents on their special days with a beautiful, handmade card. Everyone’s clan is unique. With that in mind, Stampin’ Up! provided sentiments that would include anyone in your life who feels like family; for instance, “brothers” and “sisters” who have helped you along the journey of life. This “fam-tastic” kit will be perfect for reaching out and connecting with those who are most important.

Check out this short video to learn more.

The Country Club Suite and So Sentimental Thank You

Did anyone else think of Caddyshack when you saw the Country Club Suite? (I love Chevy Chase and Bill Murray!) How appropriate that I am introducing this suite on Groundhog Day! LOL

Stampin' Up! Country Club Suite - visit www.juststampin.com for inspiration, tutorials, and ordering information - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The products in the new Country Club Suite are perfect for masculine cards! My husband is not a golfer (which is kind of ironic because we lived with a golf course view for 10 years). The double-sided designs on the Country Club Designer Series Paper is the perfect backdrop for non golfers too! My husband retired on Friday (after 47 years in education) and has been getting all kinds of well wishes.  I have enjoyed reading all the cards and notes he’s received and I know it makes a huge difference to him to realize how much he is appreciated! (The power of a handwritten card/note!) He asked me to make him some thank you cards.

Stampin' Up! So Sentimental masculine thank you note cards featuring the Country Club Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I started with Stampin’ Up!’s Note Cards & Envelopes…my favorite for thank you cards! I chose the So Sentimental Stamp Set. I love the variety of sentiments in this set! The stamp set and coordinating Stitched So Sweetly Dies are available as a bundle for a 10% savings!
