Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® Blog Hop! (w/ GIVEAWAY)!

Hi everyone!



Simon Says Stamp was founded in 2002 with an interest in exclusively selling rubber stamps. It didn’t take long until we realized we couldn’t stop there. During the past 11 years we've celebrated rubber stamping in its full glory by giving access to people around the world to a one stop shop. Rubber stamps still remain the heart of our business and we are celebrating by hosting a “STAMPtember®” event intended to inspire, educate, and celebrate the greatness of rubber stamping. Part of the enticement of rubber stamping is that stamps can be used in creating or complimenting ANYTHING! From stamping dates on bank documents and postage parcels in the early 18th century, rubber stamping has dramatically expanded to include card making, life documenting, art journaling, scrapbooking, mixed media and many forms of altering and expressing art.

To celebrate the 4th annual Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® event, we're 'hopping' along sharing some great projects featuring the new STAMPtember® product releases! This is one of our biggest releases to date and features new stamp sets, dies and stencils - the newest addition the Simon brand of products.

Simon has knocked it out of the park with this one! Here's the full release:


Many items coordinate and are available as stamp and die combos:

Here are my favourites:


We're so excited that you are here to celebrate with us and we hope to inspire you at all the stops along one of our biggest blog hops ever!

Here's my card featuring an acetate front and gift card holder (made using the Flag Card Die) inside. Pull out the gift card for an extra little message.







Now for the GIVEAWAY!!!

Simon Says Stamp is giving away a goody bag at every stop on the hop! That's 16 chances to win!



Just leave a comment on each of the blog posts as you hop along to be entered in the random drawings. The giveaways will stay open until Thursday September 12, 2013 at 6:00pm EST and the winners will be announced on the Simon Says Stamp blog on Friday September 13, 2013.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog on the hop! The next stop is Jess Larsen.

The hop begins at the newly designed Simon Says Stamp blog, so if you encounter any broken links while 'hopping' you can head back there for a full list of participants.
The Simon blog has a new address and a new look, with all the great inspiration you've come to love and expect from Simon Says Stamp! :)

Happy Hopping!!
Sarah
