Free Ribbon with Purchase

 Free Ribbon with Purchase


Our Craft Garage Sale starts Thursday and once we started setting things up we realized we have a lot of RETIRED Ribbon!!!

So, instead of selling it at my Craft Garage Sale here in Overland Park, Kansas ... I decided I would send it out to my customers over the next few days.

If you place an order of $50 or more ... you will receive one FREE Roll of Retired Ribbon for every $50 you order.  This applies only to Online orders placed on my Stampin' Up! website.

Don't forget'll also receive a Sale a bration item of your choice when you place your order online.

Dates:  February 23 - 27th

Here's some pictures of the garage at the moment ... to be honest I'm exhausted and we still have a ton of stuff to set up and we still need to price everything.

I'm not sure how much I'll be online this week ... but we are all doing well and Dave is doing great (after his surgery)!

Craft Sale Pictures - The right side of our garage looks pretty good!


Here's two tables of Retired Stamps and we're working a third.


Can you guess ... how many stamp sets have I've pulled off the tables and decided to keep?  To be honest I may remove more ... we just basically emptied the foot lockers.   Once we started pulling them ... I remembered why I've kept all this stuff!  I have to keep saying someone else will LOVE it now.

Blog  Candy -  Ribbon

Leave a comment to enter to win a roll of retired ribbon .... take a guess and tell us how many stamps have I pulled off the table (to not sale)?

Congrats Dolores North! You guessed the correct number of 10 stamp sets!  Please email Laura to claim your ribbon.

Thanks and have a great day!!

    Gosh golly!! That looks like an awesome garage sale. Sure wished I lived near you!! I’m gonna guess 30 stamp sets. For your sake (the decluttering factor) that it is less but I perfectly understand if it is higher. Hard to let some of those retired sets go, for sure !!!

    I’d say 100. That’s based on my own personal experience.

  13. Belinda Poole

    I am going to say 30 sets, but I sure it could be more because of all the years that you have been in Stampin’ Up. Wish I lived closer. Would love to attend. Hope you have a great sale and please don’t get down trying to get it all set up. Take care.

  14. Belinda Poole

  21. Bette Manning

  22. Buffy Scott

    I will say you decided to keep 67 rolls of ribbon. And I also say, there is nothing wrong with that….it makes you happy, that is why you decided to buy it in the first place, right? That is ok, you will use it up, when you, use it up..ha ha!!! Enjoy and be grateful for what you have achieved in your wonderful business that allows you to be so fortunate. Have a great time, wish I could be there to enjoy the good times!!! Take care and prayers for your husband. I will be in those shoes at the end of March. Unfortunately this will be my 13th surgery, but thank goodness this one will not be on my back. Have a great week/weekend!!!!

  23. Lori J

    I’m guessing 22.

  24. Noreene Newby

    Wow, sure wish I lived closer. That looks like a lot of years worth of happy stamping and making good memories…thanks for sharing your creativeness for all these years and even more years to come. Can’t even begin to guess how many you might have kept but I know I would have a hard time departing with any of it. Wish you the best on your sale. Right now I’m wishing I had Dorothy’s shoes so I could click them and find myself in Kansas. ?

  25. Hannie

    I know how you feel– I have parting issues with anything! I would say about 15 sets.. Which is still a lot?

  26. Gail M

    I am SO TEMPTED to take a personal day at work and fly to your garage sale and shop and fly home. An empty suitcase and my toothbrush in my purse and a wallet full of cash! I might have to look up flights! πŸ™‚ How many stamp sets? I will say 26. Have a great time at the sale!

  33. Kathy O

    I wish I could have planned a trip to Kansas just to go to this garage sale! It will be awesome!
    I am betting you have pulled 47 items off of the table. But who can blame you!!!

  34. Jennifer S.

    Good thing I live several states away! I would be buying so much stuff! I will guess 25 sets of stamps have been rescued!

  35. Pam Schweitzer

    Sure wish I lived closer would love to attend your garage sale. My guess is 14. It’s so hard to part with stamps!

  36. Jan Elmore

    Yikes!!! I’m guessing well over a hundred stamp sets were pulled! Best intentions eh? It’s hard to part with craft stuff…no matter how much you may have. You know that old saying, ‘There’s no such thing as too much!’

  37. Denise Bryant

    My guess is 45!
    I see a set on the table that i have been wanting… wish I lived close enough to come and grab it at your sale!

  40. Raquel

    Wow Angie this is the best organized Garage Sale I have seen. Almost looks like a small cozy store. You and Laura are doing an amazing job–you will sell so much and I am sure made room to put back the 51 stamp sets you took out–you are too darn cute. Good Luck on your sale. Wish I could be there. Take care and glad to hear Dave is doing better.

  41. WOW!! That is a whole lot of stamp sets!!! I think you took at least 30 stamp sets off the table to keep but probably a whole lot more than that. LOL I know if it was me that is actually what would happen to me. LOL!!!

  42. Babe O'Mara

    Good luck on the garage sale. I’d say 35 sets you took back. Take care.

    Exhausting is right. You will be so happy to get it all gone.

  47. Judy Haynes

    OMG! You crack me up! I’m hyperventilating at the sight of all that great stuff! I’d probably have to guess that you kept at least 25 stamp sets. Boy….just think of all the cash you’ll have to buy more stamps that you absolutely can’t live without! We crafters may not always have it all together, but together….we pretty much have it all! Good luck with the sale. It’s probably a good thing I live in Michigan. I might have been one of your best customers!

  61. dutch

    Thanks for the chance at the ribbon. I have never used SU ribbon before so it would be great to get a roll. I am going to guess (my forever age) 39 for the stamps. I wish that I lived closer to you so I could get in on some of your bargins. Maybe you will put what is left over (if there is anything) in your store. Thanks again

  62. Brenda Wright

    Love what you share,thank you

  63. Stephanie S.

    I would guess 151 sets. Wish I could come.

  64. Kathy

    Wish I lived close enough to come to your sale! I think you took back 24 sets to not sell!

  65. isabella

    I so wish I lived closed i would love to buy a few of your sets and other things .. we had a flood here and after 15 yrs of being a stampin up customer i lost it all my craft stuff and kids scrapbooks from babys to high school in a flood a few weeks back and i had just moved back home here to tennessee and didnt have flood insurance so nothing was covered .. but i did just buy some things from you last week on line

    i think you took back about 45 sets

    thank you for all you do angie

  66. Chris

    Hi. Kansas is just too far to drive over and back in one day. God luck on your sale. I think that you took back 34 sets. I have such a hard time getting rid of any of my sets. (and I think that they multiple over night.)

  67. Robyn

    I would love to be in Kansas to see this sale. My guess is 5.

  68. Carey Erickson

    Angie I think that you pulled off 20 stamp sets then ended up placing them back onto the table to sell.?

  69. JJ Robertson

    Hard to part with Stampin’ Up stamp sets, but a great way to make room for more! My guess is 16 sets found their way back – just a number that popped into my head.

  70. Gloria Westerman

    Wish I too live close to you…I know I would be there…with cash in hand…my guess would be 12 sets…glad to hear everyone is doing good…tks

  71. Betty Goodson

    Oh how I wish I still had friends in Overland Park (used to). This is an incredible sale , lucky crafters in your area! I sold some recently, I guess because our tastes change after we have done this for such a long time. My daughter is not even a stamper and she removed about 15 sets before the sale, so I am guessing yours had to be way more than that. I’ll guess 72. Have a good sale.

  72. Jennifer lubinsky

    Wow! Amazing. I wish I was local. I’m going to guess 3. I’m thinking you want to get rid of everything, so you didn’t change your mind about too many that you put out. ?

  73. Jacqueline volk

    If it was me they would not even a table but you put it so I’ll say trying to be good so I’ll say 53 it was my birthday on the 12th and that’s how old I as if your saying who come up with that number? I bet you took more of tho

  74. Kathy

    I’m guessing 13…..I admire your ability to sell. ANY!!

  75. Paula Bringmann

    I am going to guess 23 stamp sets. It is so hard parting with stuff.

  76. Margaret

    What a great opportunity for stampers in your area (of which, I am not). I think you hung on to 27 stamp sets that you just couldn’t part with….. Hope the weather cooperates and you have a long line of customers!

  77. Carla Perea

    I showed the pictures to my fiancee & when he found out you are NOT in Rio Rancho NM all he could say is thank god because he knew I’d be heading on over!!! LOL I think you kept 82 because there are ssooo many great older sets

  78. Donna Germany

    I’ll say 15 sets

  79. Lupita

    Hello. I say 54 sets.
