Country INKers Virtual Spring Social - What Sets You are Getting!!!

Over The Border Spring Social Banner

I am posting a quick post to update you on the upcoming Over The Border - With Di & Marcy Virtual Spring Social. I used to call it Country INKers but now that Marcy and I are joining together to do events we are changing the name to make it less confusing.
Registrations are starting to come in, so don't delay and get your name on the list.  Payment is not due until December 30...or until sold out!
As announced the other day. I am pairing up with my friend Marcy Denning from Canada, so now not only can you register for the Virtual Spring Social in the USA, you can also register in Canada.
If you live in Canada, please email Marcy at:
to get more information on the registration cost based on Canadian dollars for her Stampin' With Marcy's Virtual Spring Social. Here is her blog post with more details.
We are so excited to be bringing you classes and events together. 
Date: March 27, 2021
Time: 10am - 4pm Arizona time!
Location: In front of your smart phone/tablet/computer/laptop
Virtual Spring Social fee: $110.00 includes priority postage
RSVP and Registration Fee: December 30 - or until sold out!
No refund after January 1 as we will have things ordered by then.
Spring Social is a Virtual Event. Everything will be mailed within the USA (from Diana) or Canada (from Marcy), prior to the event. We will be doing a Zoom together that you will join as well as streaming it live in our private Over The Border Spring Social FaceBook group for all attendees to watch later. This will show your make n takes and where we can answer any questions you may have and we can all visit while we stamp virtually.
We will chit chat, and stamp for 2 hours, take a 2 hour break to stamp on our own (and where those not able to do the live zoom to catch up on the video replay), then we will hang out for another 2 hours and end the day. You can pop in and out as you see fit.
You can get a free zoom account at - when making your account please name your account/device so it shows your name so we know who you are when you log in. Only paid registered stampers will be allowed in the zoom and in the private FaceBook group for the event.
If you do not want to do the zoom, no worries, we will be streaming it in the FaceBook can watch it there later.
The stamp sets that you will be getting in your goodie box for your make n takes are:
*Darling Donkeys - Sale-A-Bration set
*Art Gallery - die not included
*Snailed It - die not included
You will be getting lots of other things to complete your make n takes or as table goodies, but we wanted to let you know the stamp sets right away. 
*If you have these stamp sets already you can switch them out with a different stamp set at the same value, just let us know when registering.
You will use your own stamps, inks, adhesives etc. to finish your make n takes.  Nothing will be stamped on your make n take supplies.
I will send you the paypal link or if you do not do paypal and want to send a check just let me know. It is important to make sure your paypal account has the correct mailing/shipping address on your account before paying...thanks!
Over the Border With Di & Marcy

Have an awesome week and thanks for stopping in.


Zany Zebras - Class in the Mail - Sign Up Now!

Zany Zebras Class in the Mail (1)

This set is so cute, and I can't wait to share some fun projects with you in December.
Please note: this is not a club, you can do one month or two, or all or skip a month, it is totally up to you.
Class in the Mail changes:
I will no longer be sending one finished card to copy from, this way you will be doing a variety of projects each month. I will be sending a PDF with the supply list and an embedded link to a private YouTube video so you can watch and make the projects along with me. Each month it will be a bit different in regards to the projects, you might be making 4 cards - 2 of each or 3 cards - 3 of each, even 3-D stuff, this will be lots of fun! Another change is if you already have the stamp set you will need to pick a different set at the same value to get with your class supplies.
As a perk to my Di's Country INKers team they can purchase just the card supplies.
The Zany Zebra Class in the Mail is $54.00 and it includes the Zany Zebra *cling stamp set, supplies for 9 cards (3 designs - 3 of each) plus 1, priority postage, a PDF with the supply list and a private video link so you can make the projects along with me. You will use your own inks, adhesives and stamps at home, nothing will be stamped on your supplies. After the packets have been mailed out I will email you the PDF.
Class sign up no later than December 15.
*Remember with cling and photopolymer stamps you will need to supply your own clear blocks, these are sold separately.
Let me know you want to order the Zany Zebras Class in the Mail and I will email you the paypal link.
Class packets will be mailed the week of December 28 and I can only ship within the US, thanks for understanding.
If you have any questions, please let me know, you can email me at or call/text me at 602-339-2776
Have an awesome month.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving

Here is hoping you have a safe and blessed Thanksgiving. I am thankful we are home and together this year, it is just the three of us and I am ready to get the turkey breast in the crockpot and Poppa's crockpot stuffing is ready too. I broke up the bread while Jeff and I watched TV last night, it makes me always think of Granny when I do that, as we would help her sitting on the couch with the roasting pan in her lap...every now and then she would grab a piece that we broke up and she would make it a bit smaller..ha! What great memories. That is what I am thankful for too.

I am also thankful for you my faithful reader, my amazing customers, talented team, and of course Stampin' Up! that has brought us all together somehow over the years.

If you get bored today, or have some time while the pumpkin pie is cooking, here is yesterday's video for Whatcha Makin' Wednesdays.
