Today I am celebrating the FIRST ANNIVERSARY of my Stamping Inspiration blog - WAHOO!!! 

Wow, it sure does go by quickly - much of it is a blur!  I want to thank all my supporters - my customers, my readers, my downline and upline, my friends with Stampin' Up! and most of all my family.  I so appreciate the support you all have given me and could not have succeeded without you!  I hope you get some enjoyment and "inspiration" from my blog.

In honor of the anniversary, I have done a little update of my blog appearance.  I haven't been able to decide on a background though.  I need your help!  If you are a subscriber, please click through and check out my new design! 

To celebrate, I will be giving away some BLOG CANDY! 

To enter, just leave a comment on this post letting me know what you think about my new blog update, vote on which background you like the best (current Baroque Butterflies, Polka Dots or Melon Mambo), and/or voice any other suggestions that you have.  Honest opinions are very much appreciated!  Winners will be chosen from the comments via the random number generator on Monday, July 5.  Here are the other backgrounds I am considering (click for larger view):

Black Polka Dots

Melon Mambo Textured

But, wait!  That's not all...

I am giving away FREE STAMP SETS to the first 5 people who place orders of $75 or more on my website this week!

AND... 2 FREE STAMP SETS to the first person to JOIN MY TEAM this week!  

FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED for stamp choice determined by the date/time that your order is closed or online contract signed on my Stampin' Up website!  I will email you for your choice after your order is placed.  Orders must be placed by Monday, July 5, 2010 to be eligible. 

The card reader on my computer is being temperamental today, so I will update this post with pictures of your available stamp set choices later - be sure to check back!


  1. I think I like the Baroque Motifs the best. I love that is uses both one of our stamp sets and the Beautiful Wings butterflies! Congrats on your first year of blogging!

  2. Happy blogaversary!!

    I love the background you are using right now but my second pick would have to be the black polka dots! :-)

  3. Happy Anniversary. I enjoy following your blog. You have such nice ideas.
    I truthfully like the current Baroque Butterflies. It is very classy looking.
    Keep up the good work.

    I really like the current Baroque Butterflies. It is very classy looking

  6. Congratulations, Marie! Your blog is one of my favorite haunts. All of your designs are beautiful, but from a readability point of view I think the Melon Mambo side-bars help draw the eye into the columns on either side. As much as I love the butterflies and the Baroque Motif, I find them distracting next to things like the archive.


  7. Happy Blogversary! I must say that I like them all but my favorite is the Baroque with the butterflies. Congrats and thanks for sharing all your wonderful creations and for the chance to win your blog candy.

  8. I just love your's very inspirational. I check you out everyday.....and usually like what I find here. My vote is for the melon mambo background....I am a new fan of this new color. Thanks for all of your hard work and for sharing with us :0)

  9. I really like the background that you are have right now. I enjoy your talent and thank you for sharing it!

  10. I'll admit it.....I'm a lurker!
    I LOVE your blog.
    I started following in February (I think) when you had the tutorial for the flowers!
    I like the dots, but I only see the top...not the sides! What's with that?

  11. love your blog:) congrats on your anniversary! my favorite background is the mambo melon. it would be super fun if you could put the butterflies on top of that pretty color. then you'd have a combo of all three butterflies,fun color, and some polka dots!!!

  12. I just recently came across your blog and am so glad I did. I'm loving those black polka dots!

  13. Happy Blogaversary! I am a fan of your current background with the swirls and butterflies. I enjoy checking out your new posts and am always looking for different ideas with big shot dies and any 3D treat holders. Thanks for taking the time to share with us.

  14. I like the Baroque with the butterflies! I LOVE your blog! I have CASed a couple of your ideas - they are fabulous. I check your site almost daily and get very "inspired."
