Well, I have to update the blog for the Sept. 1st release, so here's a sneak peek at the FAQ section. {grin}

I'm so excited! My dreams are starting to come true! :)


I want to become a Club Member…what are the benefits?

Well, the best benefit is that you’ll be cool if you join! {grin} Another great benefit is the price! You SAVE money! You can’t beat that! AND you get your stamps before anyone else that’s not in the club! Club Members get their stamps sent out FIRST! WOO HOO! Oh, and you get a cool little blinkie saying you are a Club Member to put on your blog/website and on message boards.

What is The {Stamps} of Life’s Angel Policy?
Clear Stamps: We allow crafters who individually hand make finished items for resale to use our clear stamp designs as long as the quantity manufactured or sold of any given design is handmade and does not exceed 200 pieces. If possible, please credit ‘The {Stamps} of Life’ somewhere on each creation. We do not allow our designs to be used in any type of mass manufacturing process, whether this be via mechanical, photographic or handmade means. Digital files: are for your personal use only. If you wish to use our digital items in your commercial work, please contact us to purchase a commercial license. When sharing your work on the internet in galleries, message boards, etc., please link to our website, so others can find our great products. :)

How do you ship my stamps to me?
We send them via the US Post Office, First Class. We’ve found this method to be the most economical and pretty fast. It usually takes up to five working days to get your stamps to you, but most times, it’s quicker! And the price! You can’t beat our shipping prices!

I live in CA, why do I have to pay sales tax?!?

Well, it’s the price you pay for living in our great state. Stephanie lives in CA too, and it’s what happens when you live in the same state as the company you order from. AND, our state needs the funds. Bad. But yuck, no more politics talk….too boring!

What type of digital files do you sell?

When you purchase the digital version of our stamps, you receive the jpg, png AND the abr files which are Photoshop brushes. We send you all three, so you can decide how to use them. Just a note about the files, they are sized just like our clear stamps, SO, if you enlarge them too much, they will lose their crispness. Keep this in mind, when you are creating. Digital files are for your personal use only. If you wish to use our digital items in your commercial work, please contact us to purchase a commercial license.

Hey, I thought Stephanie worked for (or owned) Inque Boutique?!?
Stephanie did not own inque. She ran most of the company (others might argue that point, but the previous owner won’t!), but she did not own it. Sadly, the owner decided to retire and the products were sold. As a company, inque no longer exists and the stamps are getting harder and harder to find in stores. If you are looking for a particular set, try eBay.

Are you a friend of Stephanie’s on Facebook?!? If not, WHY???? Be her friend to get behind the scenes info, updates and more! Click Here to find her on Facebook!
And….don’t forget Twitter!!!!! Click Here to follow Stephanie on Twitter!

New Stamp News...Coming Soon!

I've been busy behind the scenes, getting ready for the big debut. ;) Tune in on Sept. 1st!

In other news....
My oldest just started driving....yikes! She's actually a very good driver, but I still make her text me when she gets wherever she is going.....just so I know she is still in one piece! {grin} Will I ever get over being a nervous Mom?!?

Just had a year is a big one. This year was nice and quiet. Ken had the day off and the rule for the day was everyone had to do what I wanted to do. We walked around Laguna Beach, got some yummies and went to a nice dinner. With the kid's activities, just spending time together as a family is a real treat.

We still have three more weeks before school starts, but my youngest is already searching online for the 'perfect' book bag {Mom, backpacks are so NOT cool....} and my oldest is busy with AP Science homework. What is up with homework during the summer?!?

Well, I better get back to stamping....errr, I mean work....{grin!} I can't wait to share with you my secret!!!

My Two Loves Meet.....

It's no secret that I've been spending lots of time on photography. With two different photography businesses going, I've been keeping busy!

But, stamping is in my blood. It really is. I itch when I realize I haven't gotten ink on my fingers lately. So, I've decided to combine my two loves. (Without ink!)

Here are a few photos with some stamps added......(Yes, I created these stamps! However, in Photoshop, technically, they are called brushes...)

So, what do you think? I think it's a marriage made in heaven! ;) Digital stamps and photographs. Although, I'm thinking I still need these as real stamps. Stamps that I can stamp into ink and get that high I get from creating a masterpiece. {grin}
Can I let you in on a little secret? Promise not to tell anyone?!?

Hmmmm....maybe I should wait.....I know....I should create a video to share my new secret.....THAT'S IT! That's what I'll do.... ;)

See you soon!
