***A Note on Shipping
You guys broke the internet! This has been the fastest selling kit ever in the history of all StampTV kits! With Mom and Pop, (Tom and I,) doing all of the kit building, packing and shipping by ourselves as the new location continues to be worked on, I can safely say we will have longer shipping times than usual and I am so sorry about that! We got a 5:00 AM start today and have been printing, cutting, sorting, stuffing and building kits all weekend so we can start the shipping process today. We appreciate your patience and I promise that this kit will be worth the wait! I am holding off on a kit video this week just to make sure you guys all get shipping notices before the next edition of the Sending Love video series airs. This way, you will know that your kit is on its way and will be in your stamp room soon so you can stamp along with me!

Thanks for making this such a fabulous kit release and I will catch you during snack breaks over the next few days here n the web! Much love! Gotta' get packing!

Happy Stamping and lots of hugs,
Gina K.

Sneak Peek #3 and a New Home

Good Morning Everyone!

It looks like you are just as excited as we are with all of the fun new additions to Gina K. Designs! Thank you so much for all of your wonderful and supportive comments. Each and every one of them means the world to me!

Yesterday's winner of the $50.00 Gift Certficate is:

So excited to see the news about Claire! I love today's peek! Can't wait to see more of this release!

Sneak peek #3

One of my favorite images in the new Sending Love StampTV Kit is this little shopping village with that big paper crafting store right in the middle of everything. And of course that cute greeting, which I happen to agree with! LOL! (You can click on the images to make them bigger) 

This image is perfect for making gift card holders or cards for anyone on your list who loves to shop, drink coffee, knit, stamp, scrapbook ... well the list goes on! I designed this image in honor of my next big announcement!

We have a brand new home for Gina K. Designs stamps, paper and ink and a brand new studio for!

Introducing our new facility, Village Paper & Ink! 
(Opening June 1st, maybe sooner)

And here is a look at the real Village Paper & Ink:

Inside, there is close to 9000 square feet of space that will include a beautiful new retail store, a shipping and packaging department, a StampTV Theater, full commercial kitchen, a relaxation room, a classroom and SO much more!

Here is a photo of the upstairs street level:

All of the blue carpet is coming out and being replaced. Here is the new wood floor section:

Here is the view from one of our windows looking at the statue of Norman Rockwell:

Here is one of the many beautiful restaurants that grace this historic shopping district. This is Joey Girard's, right across the street from us:

And here is the beautiful Village Hall, (taken in the summer,) our view from another one of our windows:

A little bit about the Historic Downtown Greendale shopping district from Discover Greendale's website:

"Our Historic Downtown is a vibrant business community made up of shops, restaurants and services that are independently owned and operated.  We are proud of our history as a community of small, independent businesses.  Many times the person who greets you will be the owner, or their mother, sister, best friend or spouse.  We really are in the business of family business!"
Our Historic Downtown Center is lined with over 25 unique shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafes anchored by the Greendale Visitor Center, also known as the Reiman Visitor Center. Many special events are held throughout the year.
Stop at the Greendale Visitor Center birthplace of Reiman Publications- publisher of Taste of Home and 12 other Greendale based magazines. Visit our one -of- a kind cooking store featuring Taste of Home discounted cookbooks, gadgets galore and a working test kitchen.
Greendale’s history is unique. This planned community is one of only three “Greenbelt Communities” in the United States built by the Franklin Roosevelt Administration in 1936. The goal was to provide much needed jobs and better housing for families. This wonderful Village was designed to look like an English Garden Village and still resembles New England’s Williamsburg.
Come and see our “backward houses”! When you are in town you’ll notice we have backward houses…yes, it’s true! Visit Historic Downtown Greendale and we will point them out to you!
If you visit during the summer months– more than 40,000 flowers are planted annually along the downtown streets, in hanging baskets, in sidewalk beds and storefront window boxes. The scenery’s just as pretty if you come during the Holiday season, when more than 100,000 twinkling lights frame the buildings along the main street. One visitor said, “It looks just like a Norman Rockwell Town!” You’re Going to LOVE Greendale!

Read more about Greendale and see what other cool places there are to see by clicking here:

So why is this so cool for everyone, even if you don't live close by?

Here are some of the great additions coming to our company:
  • A bigger StampTV set and more time for me to focus on videos
  • A wider variety of products available to our in-store and online customers
  • Full staff to help ship and package orders and products faster
  • 1-800 number so you can call for customer service and order by phone
  • Big StampTV events with tons of stamping classes (Maybe a fun getaway for you?)
  • Many smaller classes hosted by local area teachers and me (Great for our local customers)

You're invited!

We are so excited about our release party and we hope you will join us! There will be beautiful project samples, contest questions, a release party challenge, lots of party chat and our release party presentation video all starting this Thursday night at 7:00 PM central time at

We sure hope you will join us for all the fun!

That's all for today! 
Don't forget to leave a comment for one more chance at a $50.00 shopping spree!

Sneak Peek 2 and more excitement at Gina K. Designs!

Good morning everyone!

I am so glad you liked yesterday's sneak peek! I loved all of your comments and how excited you are to color that image.

Speaking of coloring and crafting... it's time for sneak peek #2.

I've always wanted a stamp set that would allow me to make cards for crafters and artists of all kinds.

The Art from the Heart stamp set will help you do just that! Whether it's sewing, knitting, drawing, coloring or making gift card holders for your crafty friends, this set is every crafter's dream! 

Now for some more exciting news! I am so humbled and honored to introduce one of the most fabulous illustrators in the industry today and she is now part of the Gina K. Designs team!

Many of you already know Claire as the owner and illustrator of Waltzingmouse Stamps! Claire's designs have always been among my favorites and I can't even begin to tell you how excited we all are to be able to carry her sets! We will be adding many of her past stamp sets to our collection and, of course, Claire will be bringing you new innovative sets for many years to come. Not only is Claire an amazing illustrator but her cards are to die for! And she is just the sweetest person on top of it all. She totally fits in with our team and what we stand for. How lucky are we?

Please give Claire a warm GKD welcome! And let me know what you think of today's sneak peek too! I will be choosing one random winner from all of the comments and that person will win a $50.00 Gina K. Designs Gift Certificate. :)

Here is yesterday's winner:
Welcome ladies!!!! How exciting! I love this new floral design and the sentiment. I believe I can use this in my son's wedding album I'm planning to make! Yay!

Even though I'm 500 miles south of you, we too have snow here. The day started with ice fog, and was followed by snow. The streets and driveways stayed clear, and what snow there is will be gone in two or three days.

I do remember the heavy lake-effect snows in Fox Lake, Illinois (just a few miles south of the Wisconsin state line.) As a kid, I could walk up the build-up and reach the roof of the house. The only vehicle that could get through was the milk delivery truck with those big tires. He would deliver milk and eggs to each house while also transporting any school kids to the bus stop at the highway. Ah, ancient memories!
