Our Fabulous Sponsor for this weeks

Back to School Challenge 


Simply Betty Stamps

Simply Betty Stamps was born in 2010 when I had to close down my actual store due to my youngest being a premie.  I was home, with a brand new baby and felt so helpless just being home without working.  I knew how to draw and had always wanted to be a stamp designer, but how the heck to get it up and running was something I knew nothing about.  I started blogging, got on my first DT position and learned all about the digi world.  Still didn't know how to go about making digis, as I am totally old school and go paper and pencil all the way!  I had to hire artists that new how to make "clean lines" or "lineart" for digis.  I started my business with other artist rather than drawing myself as again, I had no clue on how to do it.  I started googling and searching the web on how to and here we are three years later.  Most my images are drawn and made up from my own little family, mostly my kids and they are named after them as well.  Moving forward now with a few artists still on board but myself included in the art work as I love nothing more than to sketch something out, "lineart it" print it and color it!  I love what I do, I absolutely love more than anything the dear friends and fans I have and the joy I get from their friendships more than anything!

This week's PRIZE is ...
$10.00 Gift Certificate to the Simply Betty Store!

Please join us in Welcoming our Guest Designer this week!!


Hello, my name is Regan aka Charmed Stamping.  I've been paper crafting for about ten years, mainly handmade cards.  My addiction started after hosting a Stampin' Up demo to help my best friend launch her business as a consultant.  And to think I insisted I wasn't the crafty type!  lol
In the years that I have been stamping I've amassed a vast array of stamps, gadgets, gizmos and accessories to assist in my card making.  I love to have all the latest stuff so it's a good thing I have no use for a dining room!  I discovered digital stamps in 2008 and a whole new obsession was born!  It is amazing to see my growth as a paper crafter over the years. To look at my first card now and see how far I've come is pretty cool!  I've also met some lovely people through this wonderful hobby and have many new friends because of it!

As for the rest of it ... I just hit the big 4-0 and I'm a busy, working, single mom to one very handsome (almost) four year old son, who is the love of my life!  We live in New England and share our abode with a feline named Gizmo.  And though my small man has made finding time for stamping more challenging, somehow I still manage to squeeze it in.
