We are very excited about our upcoming Stamp-a-faire event on July 23rd! There has been a lot of work going on behind the scenes to make this one of the best online stamping events ever! For those of you who may be new around these parts, Stamp-a-faire is a day filled with FREE tutorials and videos here on our blog. Many of your favorite designers will be participating and showing you step by step videos on how to improve your paper crafting skills! There will be hundreds of dollars in prizes, fun challenges for you to play along with and so much more. So if you haven’t already, be sure to set aside July 23rd as a special stamping day just for you!

On June 25th I will be presenting you with a complete supply list for all of the tutorials that we will be showcasing on Stamp-a-faire day. Instead of offering a kit filled with exclusive items, we thought it would be fun to challenge the designers to use existing supplies in our extensive product line. You will be able to use the exact supplies or just use something similar in your own collection when following along at home. 

Just in case there are a few things you would like to pick up before the big day we will be offering a special Stamp-a-faire Supply Shopping Day! If you are new here, we always offer a FREE stamp set with a $100 purchase on the actual Stamp-a-faire Day. This year we are making it available early too!

July 1st, 7am ET until 11:30pm ET will be the special Stamp-a-faire Supply Shopping Day and you can earn the exclusive Stamp-a-faire stamp set EARLY with a qualifying purchase. The set will be revealed on June 25th along with the supply list information. Here’s what you will need to do in order to get your FREE exclusive set early!

    One of my favorite memories is of our little family of 4 driving from Michigan to Cape Hatteras, North Carolina for a weeks vacation at the beach. We made that trip many times over the years. The kids were very good car travelers.

    The summer after I graduated high school, two friends of mine came to my house and “kidnapped” me to see a Van Halen concert (my mom let me go–it was okay). We drove all the way to Milwaukee in an old emerald green Pacer and had the time of our lives! It was the last time all three of us were together like that!

    My most recent favorite memory is driving down North Carolina Highway 12 that links all of the islands and peninsulas of the Outer Banks and seeing the “Inn at Rodanthe” off to our left. I told my husband I had seen it and that we would need to stop on our way back by at the end of the day. He said I was imagining things. NOPE! I have the pictures to prove it. Wish we could have seen the Bankers Ponies.

    When my husband asked me what I wanted to do for my birthday, and I said I would like to go to Paris. It happened I will always remeber that romantic trip.

    Newlyweds on a road trip … and waking up in a state park completely surrounded by the largest pinecones I’ve ever seen – huge! The start of a great life together…

    Traveling to Orlando and spending a month at Walt Disney World! With all the tragic events taking place there, it still is my fondest memory.

    Nicki Lundeen says:

    My best memory from a road trip is when I was a little girl, and my whole family (mom, dad, 2 brothers, 2 sisters and myself) would load into a station wagon and drive from Iowa to California. Then there were not seat belts and at least three of us would be in the back of the station wagon laying down. We made many stops along the way…Grand Canyon, Estes Park, and of course, Disneyland. We would stop at rest stops and have lunches that my mom packed and stretch our legs. We would also stop at a lot of souvenir shops along the way. Such a great memory.

    Taking our children to see their grandparents in IA. We couldn’t tell them until the minute we were ready to leave. Any sooner than that and it was sleepless nights and hours of questions about the upcoming trip. I remember they didn’t eat or sleep well the whole visit and came home sick, but it was always worth it.

    Traveling from Los Angeles to Las Vegas in our old station wagon. We had no air conditioning, so to avoid the scorching desert heat of the day we left late at night, which seemed an adventure in itself. We had no seat belts and my brother and I would bring sleeping bags and lay down in the back of our station wagon.

    A very memorable experience was my family’s summer in Florida. We had all sorts of wild animals in our backyard, visited the sights in Florida for 6 weeks, then traveled the main attractions around the U.S. for 3 weeks. We saw Stone Mountain, Washington D.C., New York, Gettysburg, Niagra Falls, Yellowstone, and Mt. Rushmore. This was in 1970, and I remember this plain as day!

    There’s only 10 comments, dare I answer early?! I think the forget me knots are my favorite in this release, although the wood block prints are so interesting! We took our kids (still in school ages 12 and 16ish) to Oregon/California one year for vacation in the late 90’s early 2000. We barely got through the Pass before they shut it down for snow. We experience Snow, Rain and SunShine). And spent a very dreary day on the Pacific Coast, letting our kids run up and down the drift wood/red wood covered beach. Collecting shells and drift wood in the drizzling rain, snapping photos and just enjoying the day. My husband’s sister mailed all of the junk we found on the beach home to us. Such a fun family day! Thanks PTI!

    A year and a half ago we flew to S. Carolina to see friends, a very big trip for us. After staying with them and their twin baby boys we rented a car and drove to Williamsburg, Virgina and spent several days. It was a Grand trip and we will probably never get there again but did come home and scrapbook all our pics! Best trip ever!!

    I absolutely loved the trip we made from Arizona to the west coast and up north along the shore highways to Canada. We stayed nights and ate in quaint little places that looked interesting along the way. There was no schedule so it was very relaxing

    My favourite road trips would have to be the journeys we took each summer as kids, travelling north to stay on the farm owned by family friends. It was always a fun trip with my parents and brother and we knew several weeks of holiday were ahead.

    My favorite road trip just happened last year. I met up with a group of college girlfriends whom I had not seen in years. We drove together to St. Augustine, FL, and spent a week. It was incredible!

    A most interesting and memorable road trip was when I was about twelve years old. Our family drove a camper to Yellowstone Park. The first morning we woke up to a shaking of our camper. My father thought it was a bear but we soon found out it was a massive earthquake! This was a long, long time before cellphones and since we were OK , didn’t bother to let relatives know we were fine. We stayed at the park for a week – there were just places we couldn’t see!

    One of my favorite childhood memories. A trip with my mother, dad, and brother to Hot Springs, Arkansas to find my dad’s birth place. This was the 50s and my first stay in a motel. It was so much fun and my dad was thrilled to find the house where he was born.
