A true GOLD RUSH:  order Here. Using our Letters for You (141968). A MUST HAVE  Every crafter needs a set of these letters and their matching framelits. Let the fun begin with the Good Ole’ County Fair Retreat.

Good Ole fashion fun at a Stampin’ Up County Fair retreat. Scrap Your Heart out is a biannual event held by Elaine Pelletier and Cindy Lubbe. It is 3 full days packed with crafting, laughing, good food, and just all around excitement.


No Good Ole’ County Fair would be complete without a great photo booth. When Tanner Smedly from Stampin’ Up came to the County Fairm he was greeted with the Good Ole’ County Fair fun. He was all smiles.
