Tragedy in StampLand!

Woe is me!!!!! I got an email today from Stampin'Treasures, an online company I've loyally purchased from for six years. The company is closing!!! SO sad!

This news, falling the same morning I was mourning the failure (again) of the school levy in our district, was quite a blow. The only way to comfort myself was to immediately place an order. They are having a sale right now, 25% off everything you order, taken at the checkout. I mainly buy Hero Arts from them, but they carry other lines, including Memory Box, Lockhart, and others. As the stock draws down, they'll increase the discount. I went ahead and ordered what I wanted so I wouldn't miss out, but I imagine there will be some awesome bargains toward the end.

I want to publicly thank Diane Larson, the owner of Stampin'Treasures, for her excellent service to the stamping community. Diane, we will miss you!


  1. This is really sad news. I have bought many a times from this store. WOW..Cannot believe it.

  2. I reacted exactly the same way and my order has shipped already! That's where I get (got!) all my Hero Arts stamps - so sad!

  3. Thanks for the information. 25% off is a good deal so I've ordered a few things. They were one of the companies with decent shipping rates to Canada so it's a shame to see them go.

  4. It is sad to see many good companies closing down at the moment. Here in the UK The Altered Element has been a brilliant supplier of everything you really need as crafter with decent postage rates and prices and an excellent service. They will close down next year :-(


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
