It is with sadness and tears in my eyes that I have to let our group know that Lovell Sevella died August 10, early morning  from complications of Leukemia. She was diagnosed in December 2012 and has waged a brave battle. Any picture you saw of her she had her own sweet special smile on her face. Sending love to all her family and friends. RIP Lovey we are going to miss your friendly chatter and sweet smile and creative ways. Love you!

Hi Everybody

It is that time of the year (no not Christmas yet--but only 175 days away)
drum rollllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll--IT IS CONVENTION TIME.  The Original Rubber Stamp Convention in Carson, CA will take place July 12-13.
Helene from Magenta will be there--looking forward to seeing her.  Check out the info at  There will be classes and over 20 vendors at the show--some old and a few new.  Tim Holtz will be there in the Stampers Anonymous booth, so check it out online.

Now for my friends from Stampin' from the Heart time to make a couple of cards or ATCs (your choice) and let's get together in the patio at 2PM and exchange the cards and say hi to everyone.  Also, if any of you can and want to meet for dinner after Saturday's convention, please leave a note here or on the blog or email me at and let me know if you are available and more importantly if you have a restaurant somewhere close to convention or close by where we can all meet and break bread together please let me know.  There were only nine of us getting together in March but we had the best time catching up on all the latest news and projects.  Waiting to hear from you.

Hugs, hugs and more hugs, Karen

Hi Everybody

Just a note to say "hi" and let you know I miss all of you.  Things have been a little busy in my life.  Our kids decided to drag us into the 21st century kicking and screaming--with a new ipad for Christmas which meant we had to take a class--"iphone, ipad, i'm lost" which was a good basic class.

Then for the last two weeks I have taken a class "How to sell on eBay".  So I now have 12 listings on ebay and plan to put more and more each week, so check us out there.  We are listed as "stampersheart".

I am really happy to say that all of our teachers have been able to find other places to teach, so please check their schedules.  Rebekka Behunin (and her daughter Hailey) who teach Dreamweaver Stencil Classes and has a cruise coming up in October; Lori Lai, who demonstrates and teaches for Hanko Stamps and Papers; and Mike Strong who does Mike Strong Stamps and all his famous make something out of nothing techniques are teaching at Scrampers in Gardena.  Call them and get on their email so you can find out where and when these wonderful teachers are teaching.

Nina has found her niche in an Insurance Company and is doing well.  Charmaine is enjoying her retirement and keeping busy with yoga and walking and five cats.  

I am keeping busy with grandkids and family obligations as well as trying to organize a craft room and put stamps on ebay.  Most of the stamps were in the shop before we closed, but I am still able to get stamps from a distributor that I used and so will be posting new stamps, ribbons, die cuts and inks in the near future.  

I would love to hear from any and all of you and know what is going on in your lives.  I am sending love and special blessings to all of you.

My email address is

Have a wonderful summer!!!

Hello Everybody

The Original Rubber Stamp Convention will be here on Saturday.  I have missed all of you very much during the last 6 months and would love to say hi.  We are going to meet around 2PM on Saturday around the food area on the patio.  We will see how many of us can get together for dinner Saturday and will decide when and where.

If you can't do dinner try to get to the meeting place so we can all say "hi" to one another.

Looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday.

Hugs, Karen

Well it is almost that time--Carson Convention next Saturday and Sunday, March 8 and 9. We talked earlier in the year about getting together and going out for a bite after convention shuts down. My thinking is Saturday night after its over. Give a post if you are going to convention and are up for getting together. What is good for everyone and where shall we go. Pass this on to any former Stampin' from the Heart person who may not have signed up or gotten signed up on the blog. Waiting to hear from you all (missing you lots) and I'll post what I have received on Wednesday night. You can probably all see it here on fb yourselves--but I will be in touch on Wednesday night. Have a good weekend--sending love to all of you.
