Hello Baby card

Thank you to Amy Petterson for this creative baby card!

Sorry for the lack of posts this week.  My sister's family comes next week and we are hustling to finish remodeling our basement.  Yesterday I finished scraping the popcorn off of the ceiling and started painting.  I also mudded the cracks so that I can prep the walls today for painting.  Tonight is our big youth conference at church so I probably won't get to painting today but hope to get closer.  Tomorrow I hope to work on at least one club project after the conference ends.  I have to keep hustling before my sister's family takes over the basement.  LOL!  Hopefully we

New Photopolymer Stamp Set

Photopolymer Stamps


We've searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping. And we've found it. We're excited to announce that we now have wood-mount, clear-mount AND photopolymer stamps! The new photopolymer will be an addition to our stamp line and will appeal to all types of stampers. Our top-quality photopolymer has just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and with the introduction of our firm-foam pads, let's just say they're meant for each other! Photopolymer stamps will also be unique, fun designs that will inspire you and provide more versatile options you may not see in our traditional wood- and clear-mount stamp options. 
What makes them so great?
  • They're entirely transparent for perfect placement every time! 
  • They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last. 
  • Can you say sticky? (Don't worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
  • They're age tested. They won't yellow or cloud up over time. 
  • We could go on, but we'll let you try them for yourself.
They are clearly a great choice.
Seeing the Possibilities Online Class
Our online class-Seeing the Possibilities (item 134532)-provides all the basics you need to make the most of our newest photopolymer stamp offerings: Show & Tell 1 and 2 Stamp Sets. Take this class to discover how quickly and easily you can line up the stamped images for precision placement, achieve just the right ink coverage, combine images together exactly where you want them.well you get the idea. The possibilities are endless!

Happy Stamping!

My June Swap-birthday gift card holder





June will be busy for me so I opted to whip up May and June swaps to send out this month.  I don't usually make gift card holders so this was a challenge for me.  I checked out quite a few gift card holders online and then modified the dimensions so that mine was almost card sized.

What a day it was yesterday!  My thoughts and prayers are with the folks in Moore, OK.  Is it wrong to be so thankful that my area was spared when there was so much devastation in Oklahoma?  I am thankful that we did not have any tornadoes in our area last night.




Stamps:  Delicate Doilies, Bring on the Cake
Colors:  Pool Party, Crumb Cake, Vanilla, Daff. Delight
Supplies:  Paper Piercer and mat, exacto knife, dimensionals, This and That DSP, jewels-pearls, sponges, Word Window punch, circle punch

Happy stamping!
