Sponsors Spotlight: Kellie Stamps!

It's time to turn the spotlight on this month's awesome sponsor...Kellie Stamps!

If you are unfamiliar with Kellie Stamps, then you have seriously been missing out! Kellie Stamps was founded in 2012 by Kellie Winnell. Kellie describes herself as a "designer, blogger, and online store owner", but we will preface all those words with one of our own - talented! Besides juggling all those hats, Kellie is also a mum to 3 girls.

Kellie initially began designing and selling her own stamps under the Kellie Stamps brand back in 2012 as she "wanted to bring Australian way of wording to Australian crafters, while still catering internationally". Since that time, Kellie Stamps has grown and flourished into what it is today - a homegrown Australian boutique brand that offers unique and quality clear and wood mount stamps.

Here is a sample of some previously released popular Kellie Stamps products...

Kellie recently announced her future plans for the business via her blog, Give a Girl a Blog, and explained that in order to keep her designs fresh, that all future products will be released once only, and once sold out, they are gone! Kellie is currently clearing all existing stock from her store, in order to start afresh with the new.

We would like to thank Kellie for sponsoring our challenge this month, and ask that all our followers show their support for Kellie Stamps by becoming a fan of Kellie's Facebook page HERE and following her blog HERE. (This will ensure you are kept up to date with all the latest Kellie Stamps news and product release details, so you don't miss out!) You will find the Kellie Stamps store HERE but you will have to be quick as stock is almost sold out!
