True Stamp - Dare to be 3D

Want to learn how to make these projects? You can at True Stamp! 

Calling all dedicated stampers! Whether you're a newer stamper looking to advance your skills, a more experienced paper crafter wanting an inspiration infusion, or a stamping dabbler looking to use your supplies in new ways, you need to hear about True Stamp!

My friend Lain Ehmann of True Scrap has pulled together six of the hottest stamping companies around to offer a full day of inspiration and fun... Including Raisin Boat. We're thrilled to be participating for the third year, and each time it's been more fun and inspiring than the last. True Stamp is a one-day, online, LIVE event on March 28. All six instructors will come to YOU via the magic of the Internet in a state-of-the-art web room. You'll watch class demonstrations, chat with instructors and other students, and have the time of your stampy life – all without leaving home (or
even changing out of your PJs!).

You'll learn from experts such as Shari Carroll, Nichol Magouirk, and us – Kim and Bobbi! We'll be sharing cool 3D projects like the one shown above. If you're tired of just staring at your stamping supplies or creating the “same old” projects, then check out True Stamp 2015. Almost 500 people attended last year's event, and we expect this year to be even bigger and better. See you on March 28!

Challenge #31 Celebrate!

Thanks to all of you who joined us for Challenge #30!  We are so glad we pick a name from a hat because they are all amazing. The winner this month is number 15, Laurie Pickerel.
Laurie created this beautiful card using Raisin Boat sets
Happy Together and Grandma's Kitchen.

Congratulations, Laurie, you will receive a free Raisin Boat stamp set of your choice! Please email with the name and item number of your set selection, as well as your mailing address. (To view your stamp set options, go to, click on the Products tab, and click on any category or the catalog link.)

Our challenge to you this month is "Celebrate".  This could be a card, banner, journal page, scrapbook page, anything you may celebrate!  Use any set you have (you don't have to limit your entry to Raisin Boat stamps), but if you use a Raisin Boat stamp set, it will count as two entries. That gives you twice the chance to win a FREE stamp set of your choice! You can enter as often as you like.

Remember, you can either buy  OR rent Raisin Boat sets -- no guilt in using a set for just one project, such as this challenge. We have an amazing collection of stamps and many that can be used to celebrate. This is a wide-open challenge. The possibilities are endless!
