Happy Halloween!

#SKMonthInTheLife kicks off on Tuesday the 1st of November… that’s tomorrow!

2. Follow @kstallman on Instagram. I’ll be posting each day’s prompt to the feed to remind you to take your photo!
3. Post your response to each day’s prompt on your IG feed (and I have created a #SKMonthInTheLife Pin board, too).

The aim of this challenge is to get you sharing the story of your craft business in a fun way! Not only that, if you do every challenge, you’ll have a fabulous bank of photos to use and share on your other social media and website/blog.

#MonthInTheLife – A Photo-a-Day Instagram Challenge

Hello my crafty peeps!

I followed along with this Challenge back in August 2014 done by Create & Thrive, and loved it.  So I thought why not do one for all us cardmakers/papercrafters for the month of November. This challenge is for all my crafty peeps; card-makers, artists, and creatives of any type.

I know how much I love seeing behind the scenes of other crafters or as they say creatives’, and I know I’m not alone in that.  Look at how much time we spend on Pinterest 
I want to see a month-in-the-life of your work. I want to see your space, your materials, your daily life, your passions. I want to see what motivates you, what your materials look like, and what you DO every day!

Who wants to play along with me? 

Instagram #photoaday  #SKMonthinthelife challenge

Jess at Create & Thrive mentioned in her post that if you have an iPhone, you should give Chantelle’s of Fat Mum Slim app – Little Moments – a go for this challenge. (Chantelle was the original inspiration for this challenge)

I have used Jess' reference image from 2014 that lists the challenges for each day. Please feel free to take and share this image on your own Instagram, blogs, and any other social media.
I’ll be posting each day’s prompt on the Stamp with Karen IG account throughout November with a little blurb that explains a little bit about what it is. Most of them are self-explanatory though!




I can't wait to take a peek inside your daily life and see all your craftiness!

Make sure your following us on the Stamp with Karen Instagram account.

If I can give you just a little inspiration, where you can look at one of my cards and think I can do that, or I could tweak that and put my own spin on it, then I am achieving what I have set out to do!

P.S. Please share. with your friends and leave me a comment below. I read them ALL!

Decisions, decisions what will I do?

Hello my crafty friends,

I am still struggling to decide if I will run my Stampin Up as a business or just go back to crafting when the urge hits, and trying ALL the different types of creative outlets I have been longing to.  I will still blog about all these things and probably more than I do now.  I am finding that my brain does not work the way it use too "sigh" and I am suffering social anxiety on top of everything else so having classes or even crafting with friends is very hard.

Whatever I decide; I hope you will still pop by to check out whats new. For now each day I will showcase something we have made for our first Craft Fair - Bearspaw Christmas Market November 26th at RockPointe Church. #bearspawchristmasmarket

These are little sewing kits we have made, these make great little stocking stuffers.  What woman wouldn't want one for her purse, desk or vehicle.



If I can give you just a little inspiration, where you can look at one of my cards and think I can do that, or I could tweak that and put my own spin on it, then I am achieving what I have set out to do!

Forever Evergreen Project Kit

Hello my crafty peeps!

Hope you had a great weekend!   I am off to Vernon this week to spend Thanksgiving with my family.  But I did want to share this video from Stampin' Up! that I happened across, not sure why it took me so long to watch and WANT.


I love Carrie, she always makes the best videos and is one of my very favorite people at Stampin' Up!  (Well really I have a lot of favorites at Stampin' Up!)

Decorate your mantelpiece with festive trees and seasonal decorations. This kit makes three trees in two sizes—one 13" (33 cm) tall, two 11" (27.9 cm) tall—each individually trimmed with handmade ornaments. See for yourself how kits make for easy creativity!

If I can give you just a little inspiration, where you can look at one of my cards and think I can do that, or I could tweak that and put my own spin on it, then I am achieving what I have set out to do!
