StampFest at the Bay 2015

Hello everyone, welcome back,
     I just returned from Stampfest at the Bay here in Clearwater. It is a small, quaint stamp and scrapbooking expo held in a Greek church once a year. Each year I enjoy strolling in all the different vendor booths and coming home with some new toys. 

This year, I really wanted to invest in a few new ink colors. I was growing bored with my limited amount of colors and wanted to branch out. Just as I was about to leave, out of the corner of my eye, I saw a stand on the floor in one of the booths that read: " 50% off ". Low and behold it was an entire display of Hero Arts shadow and mid-tone inks! They were listed at $6.50 each, so 50% off was $3.25 each. You guessed it, I bought every color I could find. I found 8 colors I could not live without.

I am so pleased with myself. This is such a treat! I also found some pre cut cardstock layering papers, and some clear card gift cases I have been searching for. Other than that, I was not impressed with many of the stamp companies lines of stamps. I think I am just too spoiled with simon says stamp stamps!

No matter, I have a scrapbooking expo coming to Orlando next month. I need to save up for that, and see if I can find any great deals there too. Thanks for stopping by.


  1. what a great find!! I would have bought them also!! :)

  2. Such a great bargain! I love that the entire lid is the color of the ink!!

  3. That is such a great deal! I was in Florida last week, and went to Stamp Fest too! I found plenty : ) I did not get there until later in the day, and only made it to 4 booths...... We do not get the opportunity to go to Stamp shows- and I asked Marco's why they do not come to Chicagoland, and he said we do not spend $$$ up here......Boo!


Place comment here, I look forward to hearing from you!
