Thank you so much for all your amazing comments and emails about the adorable ScrapFest Cropper Fhiona! Many of you hopped along and joined in our fun hop and scooped her up for your own personal collection. YAY!
I had an absolute blast at ScrapFest and met so many amazing people! I’d like to thank all my wonderful customers who stopped in to say Hi! I loved meeting all of you and it was great to see some familiar faces from ScrapFest in Kitchener too! Special thanks to Christine from Dol Creations who made an effort to track me down and introduce herself – it was so great to meet you Christine!!!
I’m also so grateful for my family who helped me prepare for this event. Everyone was there with me as well to help out and support me – thank you so much! I really couldn’t do this without all of you!
I’m still unpacking and winding down from all the excitement and waiting on some pictures that my family took of the event so while I’m waiting to get the remaining photos here is a picture of my sister and niece helping with the final set up of the booth on Friday night…

ScrapFest Cropper Fhiona!!!!
Whew! I’ve been keeping this a secret for a very long time and I am so excited to finally reveal this adorable stamp!!!! Isn’t she just the cutest?!? She was designed with love for Lisa who is the proud president of ScrapFest here in Ontario. She wanted an adorable stamp to represent her company and Fhiona was just the right fit. I am so grateful that she trusted me with this wonderful project – thank you Lisa!!!! It was an absolute pleasure working with you!
Cropper Fhiona is a ScrapFest special edition stamp so if you want to get your hands on this cutie and ink her up you have a very limited time to do so. You can scoop her up at ScrapFest Oshawa this weekend or if you are not a local you can purchase this stamp at the YNS Storethis weekend only! I’ve decided to remove the shipping charges from this stamp so if you would like to add her to your YNS collection then hop on over to the YNS and put this cutie in your shopping cart and the shipping is on me!
If you are local I hope you are planning to visit ScrapFest this weekend for some great deals and awesome shopping! Be sure to stop by the YNS booth to say HI as I would love to meet you and have you join me for my make and take! FUN!
Here is a printable coupon for 10% off stamps at the YNS booth plus I’ve got other great deals too! Just print this off and bring it with you to ScrapFest!
