Hi stamp and scrapbook friends,
If you haven’t heard as of yet, Stamp This Scrap That has a new owner. Leanne Small will be taking over ownership next week. I will be retiring and spending the winters in sunny Venice, Florida.

I am so glad that I was able to attain a buyer rather than go out of business. The store will remain and go on. Please support Leanne by shopping local first rather than online.

I am going to miss networking and chit-chatting with all my customers, but I do not plan on being a stranger. You will see me working on Stampede and perhaps teaching a class. Please stop in and say hi to Leanne.

Thank you so much for supporting me these past 4 years. I consider you not only customers but friends. Take time to do the things you love, Kay

    I wish you the best of everything Kay. I’m so glad I decided to stop in and check your store out when you opened. I knew NOTHING about stamping and card making. After your help with a make in take I was hooked. You’ve always gone out of your way to help me and explain how to do something. I still have a lot to learn but thanks to your help and your staffs help I’ve come alone ways. I also am a snow bird and as we traveled back to WI in Spring the thing I looked forward to the most was opening up our cottage and coming to your shop. I will miss seeing you and your friendship. You Take Care.

    Although I am only able to make it to the store once a year, ( I am from Kansas), I always enjoy the friendly atmosphere, and am sure to walk out with a HUGE bag of goodies!! Thank you both, Kay and Leanne, for making the effort to keep Stamp This Scrap That going. Take care Kay and enjoy your retirement; Leanne, I am looking forward to shopping in your store next summer!!


  4. My gosh…is this a surprise! I hope that Leanne will be willing to work with me out here in Delaware just as you have been so kind to do. You are one in a million and I wish you the very best.

    You are beginning a wonderful new phase of your life. As you say ” doing the things you love”. You are a wonderful person and always soooooo patient and helpful. I will miss your warm welcome even though i didn’t make it to the store as much as I liked. I’m sure you have passed the baton to a great person also. Best of luck. Sandy Bucklew

    Good luck, Kay and welcome Leanne!! Even though my friends and I only manage to make the 4 hr. trek to the store once a year, we truly appreciate the effort that goes into running a business. I think we need to plan a road trip in between Stampedes!! Thank-you for such a wonderful store!
