Stamp Away Weekend!

So I just got back from a FABULOUS stamping and shopping weekend in Kansas City!  It was such a fun time!  I just had to stop and share some pics of Amy, Jen, Barb and I!

Friday we spent the day at Amy's house! 

I must tell you about my FAVORITE stamping friends!  This is Jen.  She lives 5 minutes from me.  How lucky are we?  You either "get" this hobby or you don't.  She does.  I am pretty lucky to have her so close!

This is Amy.  She gets its too!  She is not as close but 2 hours is an EASY drive.  And I love her too.

This is Amy's stamp rack.  I love it too.  Alot.

This is where I would insert a pic of my friend Barb!  But she wouldn't let me take her picture.  When I saw the look she gave me, I knew to step away.  Fast. (Although I am risking everything by posting some pics of Barb later on in this post.  BARB, I do love you! And I loved your copic teaching!! Thank you!!)

This was my stamping area.....

So, here is me and Amy.  We were so happy on on our stamping day!

Here we are so happy together at Archivers.  Yes...angels do sing when you walk in the door!

We went to an insane amount of stores!  My feet hurt.  Bad.  But we just kept on!  It was worth it all the deals we found. Punches, buttons, ribbon, stamps....And I got a new pink Big Shot!  :)

Here we all are, just about to say goodbye!  (The frozen look on my face means....camera timer WORK please!)

I am sooo super lucky to have these girls so close!  It was an amazing time and I really didn't want to leave.  I hope we can do it again soon!  Channeling the Pioneer Woman I have to say to Jen, Amy and Barb.....

Love you all more then my stamps!  :)

PS-I will post some of the cards I made here soon!  I finished Deena's Paper Dolls Challenge and Teds color challenge! 


  1. love the pics! Looks like you guys had a fabulous time. I am drooling over Amy's area!! Maybe next time I can join in...I would love to hang out with you girls again. Last year at seminar wasn't enough!!! Oh will we be able to see you when we come at the end of this month? You know I'm rooming with Barb :)

  2. Wonderful pictures Laurie! You all look like you're having so much fun :) I WISH I had stamping friends that lived so close. And I have to tell you, I'm so glad you posted that picture of Amy's stamp rack, because I have what I think is that exact same rack sitting in my garage (I purchased it recently, second hand, to display my cards when I do an event), and it never occurred to my little pea brain that I could use the thing to hold my stamps!!! Guess what I'm moving next to my stamp desk tomorrow ;) Thanks!

  3. Thanks for posting pictures, Laurie Beth! It's the next best thing to being there.

  4. ACK! So fun! Thanks for the peek into your fun stamping weekend, Laurie!

  5. Beautiful pictures, Beth! Love to see all of you. I was able to identify Jen, Amy and you immediately. Not much different from your avatar photos. Seems like you girls had a lot of fun. Amy's room is gorgeous and I would love to be in there making cards.lol!
    I too have a friend called Amy as neighbour and we stamp together once a fornight.Its so much fun, stamping and chatting and giggling.
    Thanks for sharing.

  6. Look like you guys had so much fun..so cool to have friends to share the hobby with!

  7. Okay first Amy you have an amazing haircut ..... I am so tempted right now to do that !!!!! YOU guys look like you had so much fun ...... there is no one in NYC to share my hobby with ..... I wish I lived closer because I would have been on that trip in the blink of an eye!!!

  8. Looks like such fun! How wonderful to hang out with friends who understand our slight insanity over our hobby! :)

  9. You three are just too adorable! It looks like you had a blast and I can't wait to see photos of all the projects you made!
    I'm so totally jealous though...no one "gets" this hobby of mine near me...I'm alone in a sea of non-crafters!

  10. Looks like you all had such a GREAT time!!! THANKS for sharing the photos with us!!!

  11. How awesome was that! Thanks for posting pictures for us!

  14. You are lucky to have fellow stampers so close by. I'm so glad you had such a fun weekend!
