I can try and upload one later. It's a cute little set, and I think it's a great freebie! And the fact that the stamps are diecut is wonderful, too, lol!

Hmm...I just subscribed (I LOVE this magazine!) and chose the "bill me later" option so I can send a check in rather than using my card online. Here's what I'm wondering...the "free" stamp kit has fine print that reads "with your paid subscription" (or something like that), so I'm wondering if they'll hold the kit until I actually make the payment for the magazine....hmmmmm.

OK, I'm attaching a picture. I punched out a 1/2" circle to give an idea of the size.

galet1, I'd call them. They were helpful when I called about the same thing, and look! I got my set just fine, lol...

ETA: The label is quite a bit smaller than the true image because it's meant to be on the end of the block, so I stamped them out for you to see what size they really are...

You're DA BOMB, Betsy!

That is such an elegant motif/stamp set! And, what a clever kit, too!

Hi - Does anyone know how long it takes to get the stamp/kit? I ordered my subscription on 9/24 and already received my first issue of Country Living. Just wondering....
Thanks,
Heather B.

Is it just the subscription with stamp kit offer -- OR -- will there be samples made with the free promo kit dosplayed inside an issue of the magazine (like they did with the Country Blessings kit a couple years ago)? I recall at that time, the kit was to be offered from a demo whereas this time the kit comes directly from Country Living after a paid subscription to the CL magazine.

Does anyone know? And is there an issue out right now that shows/offers it?

Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.

Thumbs up

I just picked up my order from my local demo....Michele Zwart. She had inside my bag of goodies.

A thing for me to subscribe to Country Living...I too Love that magazine.

It's been years since I've purchased it...Cause I can read it at the library.

I'm thinking about getting it for myself for Christmas.

And it's neat that it comes with some Freebies.

The two stamps which are in the country living promo are from the SImple Delights simply sent kit, which was just retired.
I don't think in the Country Living magazine there will be samples with the free set, I know in the next issue there will be samples with the County Living kit which will be on sale from November 1st.

I just got my first issue----November's ---did not find anything in it regarding SU!----I even looked twice! Is it in a different issue.

Thanks for posting the promo kit---always great to see what we'll be getting for our subscription. Hope mine arrives soon. Nola

Ummmmm, that must not be correct website -- not even when putting "www." in front of it or "http://" in front of it.

That just goes to "search portal information" which is NOT helpful at all.

Got a link?? Thanks

Thanks for the link. The extra "m" was the culprit that caused the problem in the other address provided.

Super to know I have not missed the issue that the SU! is in!
Thanks for letting me know. I really thought it was November---maybe because that's what month it was in a few years ago!

Ok, here's another question---it's not related to this subject--but I just chaged my signature to add my blog (finally got one) and I noted that if I put my cursor on someone else's her at S/coast theirs underlines so that they can take you directly to it---mine does not---can you please tell me what I'm doing wrong.
Many thanks! Nola

By the way, the Holiday Collection kit (the one selling for $49.95 in the US and featured in the December 2008 issue of Country Living magazine) was "priced out" by a couple of other demos at over $100 in value.

The stamps also fit with several of the Stampin' Up! punches, if you're a punch collector like I am!

If you're interested in the subscription offer (75% off the magazine plus the free mini kit), it's $12 and you can order online at https://subscribe.hearstmags.com/sub...g/17890?src=de

FYI, I emailed the company to ask when the gift would be received and this is the reply I got back:

The offer you responded to requires payment prior to receiving a free gift. Your gift will be mailed once payment is received.
So if you choose the same pay option I did you won't receive the stamp kit until the subscription is paid!

Looks like I need to email them too. I paid for my subscription when I signed up (9/24). Still no free gift here. Did you email country living or stampin' up?
Thanks for the info & have a great day!

I emailed Country Living - went to their website, chose the Customer Service Question option and then completed the form under "email us".
Took about 2 days for a reply....
Definitely email them if you've paid and haven't received the stamp kit!!!

Thank you! I, too, sent an email today, having placed an order Sept.8, and having received the November issue, but still no stamp set. . . .
