Seven years ago this week I was preparing to start a whole new endeavor. One door had closed for me and another one opened. An adventure that I had no idea how it would turn out, how it would evolve, and how it would change my life.
This Friday will mark seven years of my business.
I can’t even believe seven years has gone by!
I think about those first days, selling designs in the most simplest of ways–using a PayPal button in a blog post as well as a make-shift store page and emailing people their designs. Ya. Emailing.
We’ve come a long way! So much has changed over the years, not just for me, but in technology and what’s readily available to make a store work.
After starting to sell designs, next came classes, then came stamps…and who knows where this path may take me. Many more years to come, I hope. :)
So to celebrate our 7th birthday, we have some fun things going on this week.
First, the image above is this week’s Weekly Summer Freebie! The freebie, Eat Cake, has this phrase and another phrase. I was feeling–in the words of my UK friends–a little cheeky when making the phrases. :) Of course you can always add your own sentiment.
It not only comes as a JPG file, but also comes in SVG and DXF so you can edit titles or colors in Silhouette Studio or Cricut Design Space. Pretty cool.
Second, all this week we’ll be going Behind The Scenes with our Creative Team. You’ll get a little glimpse into the creative world of these amazing women that I absolutely treasure!
Third, we have two brand new stamp sets in the house! The first, Farmer’s Market, is for all the garden goodness going on for this time of year. The other one is for the new Versed line called Sing. These song titles are based off hymns from the LDS hymn book. That being said, many of the hymns we use are based from hymns heard throughout many faiths that originated before the LDS faith was even around. Hymns have a way of sticking around through the years. The words and sentiments are so meaningful for many faiths.
And lastly, all downloadable kits and classes are 30% off and stamps are 20% off through Sunday. Stamps are already marked down. Use the code BIRTHDAY7 on orders of $10 or more at checkout on the download items. (Sale excludes the two newest Versed stamps from July and the two classes already discounted.)
Oh, aaaannnnd….some of the sold out Christmas stamps are back in stock! Twinkle, Believe, Oh What Fun and Tagged are back! I know there’s been many of you just waiting for those! They do have a tendency to go fast, so if you’re wanting yours ahead of the fall crafting season, now is the time.
And on another note, if you are purchasing stamps and you receive an error saying that there isn’t enough stamps and to try again in 60 minutes, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work it another way. There is some glitch causing this when quantities are low on some stamps, but they are not sold out. We’ve been trying to resolve this for quite some time with no success.
It’s going to be a great week! And it’s a great time to stock up on all those things on your wish list, because there won’t be another sale like this for some time.
