Send Kindness Today

In some cultures, ring-shaped foods are symbolic of coming full circle and are considered good luck.  So, enjoy some doughnuts today for good luck!  Or, send a card created with the What’s Cookin’ stamp set from the May 2021 – April 2022 annual catalog!  Make it warm and inviting!  I have accented with the new Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder and the spatula and whisk were created using the Silver Foil 12 x 12″ Specialty Pack both from the mini catalog.  See more like this at


Just peachy!

Who is excited about the new Mini Catalog?  I know I am, but there are great products in the Annual Catalog, too.  With peaches in season, I will pick up my peaches from Georgia next week.  I love canning peach salsa – just the right amount of heat for chicken anytime of year.  And, there is peach pie, peach ice cream and peach crumble…are you hungry yet?!  ‘Have a Peachy Day’ was created by Leila Pals!  I love the lacy detail of the Square Vellum Doilies and the bright contrast between Mango Melody and Basic Black.  The peaches look good enough to eat!   See more like this at


Words of Cheer in July!

Christmas in July – it always sneaks up!  Enjoy this awesome sneak peek of the Words of Cheer stamp set and Christmas Cheer Dies.  The Words of Cheer bundle contains dies of the words Cheer and Happy.  There is a solid version of each word along with a layering version with greenery accents.  This card features the layering version of Cheer punched from the Be Dazzling 6 x 6″ specialty paper that is FREE with a $50.00 order during Sale-a-Bration (3 August – 30 September).  This gorgeous paper really sparkles and resembles fish scales in a teardrop design – think mermaid!  Mark my words, this will be a customer favorite with its glittery appeal!  Available to order August 3rd – be sure to add this to your collection.  See more like this at

Sneak Peek: Penguin Place


Enjoy a sneak peek at this cool little penguin!  You will find the Penguin Place stamp set in the upcoming Mini catalog along with the Penguin Builder Punch that together make up the Penguin Place Bundle.  A few fun accessories (that will probably run out quickly, so keep that in mind!) include Wonderful Snowflakes and a background created with Blending Brushes and the Adorning Designs Decorative Masks.  The penguin is punched from Black Glitter Paper and his little feet are punched from Rainbow Glimmer Paper.  Fun! Fun! Fun!   See more like this at





Although Father’s Day is over, I just had to share this adorable picture of my son and his daughter!  This was his first Father’s Day.  As you can tell, he is loving every moment of fatherhood.

While designing this card, I noticed this stamp set has shapes that remind me of Star Wars.  See the planter in the lower right? Could it be part of Darth Vader’s helmet?  The Bee Charms resemble aliens.  (I’m also realizing I may have too much time on my hands).  This card takes you back to basics with direct to paper stamping.  I intentionally left the colors soft and kind of grunge-looking.  For a bolder card, use the Stamparatus and stamp the image repeatedly until you achieve the color intensity you want.  See more like this at
