All of the items on this list are sold "While Supplies Last" That means that once they are gone, they are gone. I do not want any of you to be brutally disappointed, so if you see it on the retirement list and you want it, buy it~~don't wait.

Even before the retirement list is published we know the 2018-2020 In Color items will be on the list. If the past is any indication, these items will disappear quickly, so be sure you get the ones you have to have before they disappear.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the card shower with me. It's hard to believe we started this shower a month ago. I have mailed a total of 225 cards and I have sent 150 cards to friends and family so they could use them to spread some happy and participate in the card shower with us. I won't be posting here every day with card suggestions, but I will continue to send cards and share my paper crafting passion with happy mail, and I hope you will do the same.
Today I am sending Get Well cards. In addition to those suffering with Covid 19, there are many others out there sick with the flu or recovering from surgeries, and they need to know we're thinking about them.

The Clearance Rack has been updated and you can now purchase some great items at up to 60% off. You can shop the Clearance Rack 24/7 on my website HERE


We are almost half way through April and looking at a minimum of two more weeks of sheltering in place. Luckily I am with my son and my husband and we are using Zoom and Face Time to keep in touch with our extended family and friends. But there are many who are sheltering in place alone, and they need a little extra encouragement. Today, let's send some Hang In There cards to someone you know who is struggling.


This is the last call for the In Color Retirement Party on April 23rd at 7:00 p.m. in the Zoom Rubber Room Classroom. In addition to the retiring In Colors, I will be featuring the So Sentimental Stamp Set, Item #151691 for $22.00.
I would suggest you include other 2018-2020 In Color items, such as the 6x6 DSP, Stampin' Write Markers, Card Stock, Classic Ink Pads and Refills in your order, because once the In Color items are announced on the Retirement List (which is available April 23rd), they will quickly sell out.
You must RSVP by midnight tonight if you plan to attend. I will put card kit packets in the mail to you tomorrow. Please note card kit packets WILL NOT contain stamped images. Your packets will contain all the materials you need to make 8 cards (2 each of 4 different designs). The materials in your packets will be placed strategically inside your card base for each card. This is done so you can pull one folded card base out, open it up and all the pieces you need to make that card are inside. This will help you to easily locate what materials you need when we are in our Zoom Room creating together.

You can RSVP by
email me at: ckolly@stampingismybusiness.com
or text me at: 248-909-8016

You must make payment or place your order when you RSVP
If you'd like to place your order directly, please place it by midnight on my website: http://www.rubberroom.stampinup.net and use hostess code 6FEXYEUK

As always all RRR team members can attend class for $5 and you will make only 4 cards (one of each of 4 designs). If you want the four card kits mailed to you, please add an additional $4 for mailing.
When ordering, don't forget the April Sale-a-Bration Celebration. When you place a minimum order over $50 during April with me, I will send you a FREE SAB item from my stash.

I am starting a brand new Club, called the Kolly Kit Klub.  It will be three months long and will take place in April, May and June.  Each month you order the monthly kit using a host code, and the kit is delivered right to your door.  The kits are super simple and offer an easy, fun crafting experience.  AND when you order your Kit as part of the Klub, I will email you a tutorial for four additional alternative cards you can make with the materials from your kit.  For an additional $10 (includes mailing fee), I will mail you a package containing all the card stock and materials you need to make those four alternative cards (except the materials that are contained in your kit).
If you want to put your Kit together with other Klub members, we will schedule a Zoom at the end of the month and put them together while we socialize.
Your April Kit is the Notes of Kindness Kit. This kit makes a total of 20 cards, 5 each of 4 gorgeous designs.   Your order number is #148266 and the Kit is $35 before shipping and tax.  If you don't have adhesive, I suggest you add snail adhesive to your order.  The snail adhesive is item #104332
Your hostess code for April is 6FEXYEUK
You can place your order any time during the month, but if you want to receive your Kit in time to create together on Zoom, please order by April 15th.  
I am happy to place your order for you.  Or, if it's more convenient you can order:
online 24/7 at  http://www.rubberroom.stampinup.net


I am starting something new, and I can't wait to share it with you!
I hope you will join me on my FaceBook page at Rubber Room Ramblings, Stampin' Up! with Chris Kolly, tonight at 7:00 p.m. for the big reveal. I am going to share all the details for a brand new Kolly Kit Klub. This is going to be super exciting, and I know you won't want to miss the details on how to join. See you at 7:00

It is rainy and gray here in Michigan this morning. But, there are lots of spring flowers making their way out of the ground and gracing us with their beautiful blooms. Such a beautiful reminder that sunny summer days will soon be here again. Let's send some flowery cards and brighten someone's day.

Today let's let people know they are doing a good job by sending congratulations cards. Each day we all have simple accomplishments that, in the eyes of others, can be huge accomplishments. Let's congratulate our friends, neighbors, family, coworkers, etc.... on their accomplishments. Let's face it, these days, I feel I need to be congratulated just for makin' it through the day with a smile on my face.

One of the most difficult parts of "sheltering in place" is missing all my relatives.  Let's take a minute (or two) today to send a card to a relative and let them know you love them and miss them.
