Free Project Instructions!


Hello my Friends! Today is the day! I am VERY EXCITED to annouce a new program that both myself and my friend, France Martin (aka Frenchie) have created just for YOU!  If you're a regular blog reader and customer of mine then you will know that a year ago Frenchie and I joined forces to serve our customers on both sides of the border.  Stampin' Up! demonstrator's policy is that we are not able to sell outside of our country.  I've often had requests from the USA for orders and Frenchie has had the same with customers from Canada.  To solve this I pass on customers to Frenchie who live in the States and Frenchie passes on customers to me who live in Canada.  Hence the name of our service, "Passport Pals".  It's a win and win and ensures no matter which side of the border you live on we can guarantee you'll receive the best customer service and support your stamping addiction needs! Ready to hear about our new program now?  I know you are! Read on....

Beginning today, every single qualifying order placed through my (and Frenchie's) online store will receive a FREE PDF project tutorial that you will LOVE!  Every month Frenchie and I will design at least 3 projects which will include full colour photos, step by step instuctions and measurements, as well as our exclusive videos for ALL OF THE PROJECTS!  What that means is, you will receive a total of SIX projects (or more) from both Frenchie and I, all in one PDF and the links to each of our videos! How awesome is THAT? Oh my goodness - I am so excited about this!  So is Frenchie. 



SEPTEMBER 2014 FREE PROJECTS!  Full colour, step by step instructions for 4 cards, storage box for cards, curvy gift box, plus bonus projects in a PDF that will be emailed to you with a min. $25.00 online order on my site HERE when you enter the hostess code 4FQAZQ39 .   Important - when you shop online be sure to click "Demonstrator can contact me" and include your contact information.  Otherwise there will be no way for me to receive your name and email to send your PDF gift!

Do you live in the USA instead of Canada? No problem! You can be a part of this too! Visit Frenchie's blog HERE.



You may wonder why we are doing this for FREE.  
It's simple...
It's because we APPRECIATE YOU and your support.  
This is another way we can thank you for being our customers!

There will be different projects and videos released on the beginning of each month. Once you place your min. order of $25 (tax and shipping not included) I will send you the PDF for mine and Frenchie's projects, as well as the links to our videos, within 48 hours.  If you have any questions let me know - I can be reached at serenestamper@gmail.com

Thankful for Nurses and Doctors!


Good day my friends!  So first things first, Thursday's edition of Simple Sentiments Series was missed.  Sorry about that.  Reason being my husband ended up in emergency at the hospital in the wee hours of Wednesday and has been there ever since.  He woke up with extreme pain in his belly and I've honestly never seen him such agony.  Took me forever to convince him to go to the hopital.  What a journey that was (it's 2klm on a very bumpy, dirt road from our house to the main highway and another 40 minute drive from there).  It took many tests and three doctors to determine that Russell had a blockage near his bowel that was causing all the pain.  He had surgery on Thursday and the surgeon removed a web type membrane that had created the blockage (which is a relief because there was a chance my hubby would have to have part of his bowel removed thus getting a colonoscopy bag too).  Fortunately that didn't happen.  The cause of all this was more than like due to a bad car accident a few years back (which bruised his kidneys pretty badly) and the web (which is like a protective shield) built up over time.  My Sweetheart is still in the hospital and will be for a couple more days.  
My poor Man.  He was happy about this morphine machine though!

The nurses and doctors have been absolutely FABULOUS and we're very grateful for them.  Obviously, being new to Nova Scotia, we don't know many people here yet but the support from friends we have met - as well as all my demonstrator friends (via facebook) and of course our family has really made a difference.  I love how Stampin' Up! has brought so many wonderful friendships into both mine and my husband's lives - especially at times like this - really makes a HUGE difference.

I made a card to take the nurses and my hubby's doctor today, to show my appreciation for all their care:
 (I also used the new "Good Greetings" stamp set that you can get for FREE! Click for details)

So you could say I've been pretty busy, going between home and the hospital, picking our blueberries (before it's too late in the season) as well as regular day to day business that needs to get done. BUSY! And I sure do miss having my hubby at home (we're kinda joined at the hip!).  Here are some photos I took of my first attempt picking the blueberries.  After this post I'll be scooting into town to see my Sweetie then I'll be back home picking more berries, until the sun goes down!

Got the buckets ready to fill with berries!

First 'official' scoop of blueberries, which will be sold to a buyer. Until we get our land cleared and berries on a growing schedule all the picking needs to be done by hand.
First scoop of many!
Each of these flat trays holds approx. 33lbs worth of blueberries - I managed to get 4 trays filled to the brim!  I'll be back picking tonight and tomorrow (and the next day, and the next day...)
Turns out I really enjoyed raking the blueberries (at least until my body is so sore that I change my mind) and being outdoors, sunshine and warm wind; it's just lovely.  This is the view of our house from one of our blueberry patches.
Enough about all that - I've got something very exciting to share with you tomorrow.  It's something that Frenchie (France Martin) and I have been putting together this summer and tomorrow is the day of the reveal!  We are really, really looking forward to our annoucement so please come back tomorrow to see what we've got up our sleeve for YOU!

Enjoy the day and HAPPY STAMPING!

For All Things

 Hello Passport Pals 
   Can you say out loud the Holiday catalog is live. Yippee.... Yes you can order from the Holiday catalog starting today. I'm sure in Canada and place in the US, the night start to cool off and soon we'll be thinking of the Holidays. So perfect timing for the Holiday catalog. I don't know about you but fall is my favorite season so rich in color.
    Now lets talk about this simple fall card I use the Typeset  and stamp direct on it. The stamp set is a new one in the Holiday catalog call For All Things. I stamp the leaves in Old Olive and Cajun Craze, the fun shape where I stamp the greeting that is Hello Honey and stamp the greeting over with Cajun Craze. Card stock are Hello Honey and Cajun craze. The little spiral look on the side I use the Spiral Punch *FYI if you do many card with the Typeset DSP you can easily punch 5 sheet all at once this specialty paper is super thin so for punching it is easier to punch a few at the same time. 
 Now here with a little more detail I added the Mossy Meadow ribbon and some gold dazzling detail. Sometime just a few more accessories add so much to a card. Love the add on. 

Well my Pals this wrap if up from Frenchie for today, make sure to check our blog next Monday for a new program for our Passport Pals you will love what we have in store for you. till then Happy stamping
