Hi guys!

I hope you had a wonderful Holiday Season and I don’t think it’s too late to wish you a Happy 2014 yet! I had a wonderful time having my oldest back from college over winter break. Now that the kids are back in school and we are over a nasty cold that swept over all of us, it’s time for me to get started on selling my crafting supplies. I have decided to quit stamping all together. Listing all my supplies is quite overwhelming, so I will list a bit at a time.

If you want a stamp set/dies you know I own that I haven’t listed yet, just email me. I plan on listing everything at least half off the original price. My first listing is all my My Favorite Thing supplies. It’s quite big, so I didn’t add photos. You can find samples for most sets on the Splitcoaststampers website. If you need an image, email me the name and I will take a picture and send it to you.

Medium sets (regular $17.99), $9.00 unless otherwise noted:
LJD Howdy $4.00 (retiring)
Tiny Sets  (regular $9.00), $4.50 unless otherwise noted:
Ala Modes Fight Like a Girl
Die-namic Dies MSRP Price:
Jumbo Scallop $10.99 $5.50
Little Open Scallop Strip $9.99 $5.00
Open Scallop Edge $8.99 $4.50
Paper Doll Girl Strip $8.50 $4.25

I will only ship product with flat rate priority Mail. Otherwise all the mailing will get to complicated. Thank you so much for all the encouragement over the years. It meant so much to me!

Hugs and smiles

  1. I can not believe you are quitting! You have been such an inspiration to me Beate, you are so creative and I will miss you, as well as so many others who look to you for inspiration. Hugs 🙂

  2. Ditto…..you have provided much inspiration for so many. But alas, things change and so do we. Whatever you are involved in you will do 100% until the time comes again to change. We hope to “see you out there” soon.

  3. Thank you for your great inspiration! You will be missed.

  4. I can’t believe that you are quitting stamping! I have learned so much from you over the years! You will be greatly missed! I am so sad that you have made the decision to quit stamping. I just watched your stamp room video and if and when I ever get around to setting aside a space in my house for a craft room; I will be putting vent covers inside the door of a cabinet I have to store my dies. Right now they are in a binder on magnetic sheets with sheet protectors which works fairly well for now. I am wishing you all the best in where ever life takes you and hope that you have a change of heart! I can understand the decision to quit especially if you will be moving in the near future but honestly wish you will have a change of heart.

  5. You’re QUITTING? I don’t think I could do that. Thanks for all the years of inspiration, and best of luck in your new endeavors!

  6. I’m sorry you’re leaving.
    I’d like to place an order for all of your blueprints.
    Thank you.

  7. Just sent an email with my order. Not sure if I had the correct email.

  8. I, too, will hate to see you leave. However, I understand when you are done. Simply know you were the reason I started stamping. I don’t do it full time….but the quality of your work and videos inspired me to try it. Wishing you all the best on your next journey in life!

  9. I felt so sad when I read the post that you are leaving stamping. We will suffer a great loss without you and your wonderful videos and the inspiration you provide with your cards. I guess all good things must come to an end but know how much you will be missed!!
    All the best on your new venture.
    Sending you smiles and hugs,

  10. Gosh, this is sad news for the stamping community. I have learned so much from you and gotten so much inspiration. Thank you for sharing your talent with us for so many years. You will be missed.

  11. Beate, I am so surprised about this news…and wish all good things for your future. You have been truly inspirational and I would love to give home to some of your products in the hopes that some of your creative juices will rub off on me when I use them! I’ll send you an email with my wishlist. Best of luck!

  12. Oh, you will be missed by the stamping community! To say you have been inspirational doesn’t quite cover your creativity and wonderful teachings. Best of luck on your future endeavors and blessings to you and your family!

  13. Its quite shocking to know that you are quitting!!! I always looked forward to you tutorials on splitcoaststampers. You are truly an inspiration for most of us! You are one of the reasons I started using spellbinders dies!! I am very sorry that you had to take this decision. I wish you all the luck and happiness in the future!

  14. Beate, I am so sorry you are quitting stamping, however, I do totally understand the decision. Please know how much of an inspiration you have been to me over the years and how much you have taught me as well. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with all of us.

  15. It seems like I just celebrated your return and you are leaving us again, this time for good. You will be so missed. Your talent is unbelievable. When ever anyone asked me who would l like to spend time learning from, your name was always at the top of my list. My very best wishes in what ever happens to be in your future. Know the door is always open here in stamping land.

  16. Or shucks! One of my most inspirational stampers is quitting? tell me it isn’t so! I knew while your husband was deployed you would not be stamping but I was anxiously awaiting his return and yours. I have learned a ton of stuff from you and in fact just pulled out the valentine you sent me last year! Take care, my friend.

  17. So very sorry that you are leaving stamping. You will be missed very much. Thank you for all of your inspiration over the years. God Bless and good luck!

  34. Oh, Beate! You are dearly missed and loved! You have been such an inspiration and such a wonderful “friend” to us all on SCS!

I wish you and your family continued blessings, and may God continue to bless you! Loads of hugs and love! Cheryl

  35. I am just one of thousands who you have inspired. While we will miss your creativity, I totally understand. A person just knows when they are ready to move on. The thought has crossed my mind a few times too.
    If you ever do want to pick it up again, you can go out and get all new stuff! 🙂
    Enjoy whatever it is that will be filling up your crafty time slot.

    True 😀

  36. I’m one of the many that has been inspired by you and learned so much from you over the years. I’m sad to hear that you will no longer be stamping but I do understand that life has its twists and turns. I wish you and your family the best. Thank you so much for all the effort you put into all your tutorials and videos.

  37. (((Beate))) …I know I’ve been ‘out of the loop’ for a white, but when I read your post I had to stop by to wish you well. You truly have been my BIGGEST paper crafting inspiration, and I want to thank you for your tutorials, encouragement, inspiration, and friendship over the years. I would also like to wish you the very BEST in whatever your future holds. ❤️ Big hugs ❤️

  38. Beate I am sorry to hear that you are taking a long leave (notice how I said long leave) from stamping. You have been a great inspiration over the years and truly have a god given talent. However, God will use you in another way to inspire others and your family. Enjoy this time with them and enjoy each day sweet friend. Hugs to you!

  39. Beate,
    I feel as if I’ve been suckered punched with the news that you are leaving the stamping world. BUT! With that said, first I must thank you so much for giving so much to the stamping community. Your tutorials and projects were so inspiring and beyond lovely! I will treasure the card you sent me all that much more, knowing it is now a “limited edition”.

    I wish you only the best in your future endeavors! Blessing to you and your family!

  40. So sad to see you quit stamping. You were truly an inspiration to me. Thanks for all your kind words of encouragement to me.

    Your children are so lucky to have such a wonderful mom, enjoy the rest of the years they are home. I am realizing myself, that the years fly by too fast.

    I will miss you! 🙂

  41. I wish you and your family the best.
    Thank you for all of the years of inspiration and guidance.

  42. you will be so missed, Beate! thanks for all the inspiration! big hugs!

  43. I wanted to say thank you for you excellent video tutorials. You have inspired me to make videos for my woodshop students. I have learned so much from you, so much more than stamping and crafting.

  44. Dear Beate….(Bee-oughta)….ditto what all the others said….”inspiration”, “loosing friend” “missing you”, but I will miss your beautiful voice and accent!! Sometimes I watch the videos just to hear your voice!! And whenever I got a comment from you on a card over on SCS, I would just SQUEEL with delight!! LOL. Best wishes. Good luck!! Catch ya on the flip-side!!

  45. Hugs and smiles 🙂
    Welche drei Wörter würden besser zu Dir passen?
    Es gibt keine Worte um zu sagen, was Du an Herzlichkeit und Wissen geteilt und geschenkt hast.
    Unglaublich, wenn einem Menschen so was gelingt. Ich verneige mich vor Dir.
    Meine liebsten Gedanken und herzlichsten Wünsche werden immer mit Dir sein.
    Hoffentlich kehrt die Freude die Du so vielen Menschen gemacht hast tausendfach zu Dir zurück.
    Hugs and smiles 🙂 xoxoxo

  46. Hi Beate,
    It seems quite a while since I last saw you in blogland. The last I heard you were taking a break from crafting just for a while. I am so shocked and saddened to hear that you are quitting stamping all together.

    I learned all I know about colouring my stamped images by watching and learning from you, Beate. You have been such an inspiration to so many. I still watch your YouTube videos when I need some inspiration.

    Whatever you decide to do in the future , I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all the very best life has to offer.

    Sending hugs and lots of love xx

  47. I can not believe you are quitting! You have been such an inspiration to me Beate, you are so creative and I will definitely miss you and your lovely blog. I wish you the best in your future endeavors. God bless!

  48. So sorry to see you go.. your work was always so fab! Thank-you..

  49. What a sad post to read on this cold, cold day! You have been an inspiration to me, as well. The stamping/crafting world is losing a very talented person….but good luck and THANKS FOR ALL YOU’VE SHARED!

  50. Beate,
    I hope you and your family realize how many people’s lives you have touched.
    Thank you.
    Best of luck.

  51. I was wondering where you went… so sad to hear that I won’t see any more of your crafting posts here or at SCS. I will miss your creative inspirations (as I need as much as I can get!). As long as you made the decision for the right reasons all will be well for you and your future. Just remember there will be no shame should you return to the crafty realm that you once loved and inspired others – you would be welcomed with open arms and excited people.

  52. Thank you for all you’ve shared over the years! 🙂 I will miss your work! Best wishes for whatever you choose to do! 🙂

  53. Thank You !!
    You will be missed 🙁
    All the best for your future commitments.
