Important Notice: Stampin’ Up! recently updated my website! To ensure you have the best experience, the next time you visit my site, please make sure not to include “www.” at the front of the URL. Or you can simply click the following link and save it as a favourite so you don’t have to think about it: https://serenestamper.stampinup.net/
If you forget and do include “www.” at the front, it’s possible you will see an error telling you the site may not be secure. That’s not true; in fact, it’s more secure than it was before the update! That “www.” is the problem.
I’m also in the process of updating my calendar of events so stay tuned for my Christmas classes!
