Never Miss Another Stampendous Facebook Contest!

There’s been so much buzz online lately about how Facebook chooses what to show to fans of a Facebook Page like ours at Stampendous on Facebook.

We want our fans to see everything we post, of course, but lots of pages post LOTS of posts each day, and there’s just not room for all of it!

But now, you can catch every post! Simply visit our page at the link above, and hover your mouse over the Like button (which had better say, “Liked” !!) right under our cover photo:

Screen shot 2013-08-29 at 4.09.15 PM

If you choose Get Notifications and it shows a check mark, you’ll get notifications when we post something new! (that means the little globe at the top of your page will light up and show you a number)

If you choose Show in News Feed it will show you all our posts when you click Home at the top of your page (along with your other News Feed Posts), instead of just showing you the ones it feels like at the moment. (well, it doesn’t feel, but you know what we mean!)

Under Settings you can make some more specific choices like whether you want to see All Updates from us, or just Some Updates.  This way you don’t miss any contests we do, or opportunities to win FREE product!  🙂

If you choose Add to Interest Lists – you can make a list of all the pages you like that have to do with crafts, or stamping, (or shoes, or bridge, or whatever).  You can make a new list and just click on the pages you want to add to it, then it will let you name your list.

THEN when you log on to Facebook and you’re on your Newsfeed (by clicking HOME at the top of the screen). Your Interest List will be in the column on the left near the bottom.

Screen shot 2013-08-29 at 4.24.08 PMSee the one I made – called Stamping Stuff! ??  If you don’t see yours you can click the blue MORE to see more of your lists.

Does this help? We are happy to share tips like this if it helps you get more out of our Facebook Fan Page. Be sure to keep your eyes open for a Facebook Fan Contest this week in honor of the Labor Day Holiday!

We haven’t forgotten! But join us on Facebook today!

Paper Crafts Magazine – Join us TODAY!

Join us over on the Paper Crafts Magazine Facebook page as they drool over our fantastic new Plume Portrait stamp! We sent them some to give away, so you might get lucky! This elegant lady in the Plumed Hat is all ready to be at the head of your Easter Parade! Or invite her over for Fashion Week or just an Afternoon Tea. You’ll love the detail in her pretty face and how easy she is to color, or not! Wait until you see what our Design Team has done with her.

Plume Portrait by Debi Hammons

In house sample artist Debi Hammons used watercolors to make our beautiful belle into a fun friendship card. A little bit of Fran’s Encrusted Jewel Technique with Aged Gold Embossing Powder and Gilded Mica Fragments in the corner adds a special touch to this lovely card.

Design Team maven Pam Hornschu sent us one of our favorite cards of the January 2012 Catalog.

Plume Portrait by Pam Hornschu

Pam used our new Garden Background stamp and added some pearl embellishments and ribbon for a super soft card that would delight Mom on Mother’s Day or a special friend any time.

The rest of the team played along too with STUNNING results. They surprised even us and we’re used to their awesomeness! Check it out!
