September Sneak Peek Week Day 3

Welcome back to Day 3 of our 
September Sneak Peek Week!

Does anyone remember the movie Must Love Dogs? 
 I am a BIG John Cusack fan! 
While today's sneak peek has nothing to do with him, 
or even dogs for that matter, 
its title was inspired by the movie's title since I was watching it for probably the 20th time 
while creating this happy little stamp set. 

If you love snowflakes, then you simply must love this set! 

Introducing...
Must Love Snowflakes

If you love snowflakes, then you simply must love this set!
 Elegant snowflakes will create a flurry of excitement when paired with any of these 6 lovely sentiments.

Let's see this beauty in action, shall we?
Each of the Girl Fridays has created pure delight with this set.
Please be sure to visit their blogs to get details about their creations and leave them some love :)

I am soooo excited about this release!

This gorgeous autumn wreath comes with 7 lovely sentiments 
that can easily be mixed and matched to create even more wonderful sentiments.

Happy Thursday!

I am so excited to share Girl Friday Deepti's projects with you today!
They are spooktacular and boo-tiful!

EEEk!  How darling is this????
She got inky with Spooky and it's the cutest thing ever!
I love how she drew little web lines for her spiders to hang from, and the fussy cut webs embossed white on vellum...super yummy!

Wait til you see the spooky little graveyard scene she created using some water color techniques..


I'm seriously drooling over this!  It's so cute and so fun!
I think I need to go buy some Halloween candy now,
and eat it while making some Spooky projects :)

Be sure to stop by Deepti's blog to get some cool deets on her projects
and tell her what an awesome job she did with this fun stamp set!

September 8

Happy Monday!

I'm excited to bring you a fun and inventive card from 

She got inky with Exclamations, and look how fun this is...

She water colored that big bold panel, and then cut it to create the space for the sentiment.
I love how she stamped it a few times to fill the space.
This card would be awesome for any sort of celebration...graduation, a promotion at work, birthdays...the list could go on and on!
I think we could all use a couple of these fun and colorful cards in our stash :)

What a great start to our week!

Introducing...

What a fun week this has been!
Today I get to introduce you to the final addition to our Ink Squad Team.
You've actually met her before!

She was our guest a few months back, 
and she knocked my socks off!
She has a real WOW factor to her design style...
It's dramatic and elegant with a wonderful sense of color.

Are you ready to see who's back?
Joining us from Ohio from a blog called Dee's Art Utopia 
please welcome 
Deepti Malik!


Hi! I am from India and moved to Cleveland, Ohio after marrying my dear husband in 2011. My hobby used to be sketching prior to paper crafting. It all started with making some new year cards for family in 2013 which led me to Pinterest, to Paper crafting magazine and finally to the wonderful world of blogging... I have been hooked ever since. All the rest of my hobbies have taken a back seat. 
My crafting style is CAS and what makes my cards unique is that I usually try to bring out some meaning into my designs. My recent craze is Distress inks. Besides, card making I often try my hands on canvas paintings, pastels and pencil sketches. 
In my free time you will find me watching thriller series/ movies ;) you name it and I must have seen it LOL

I am so thankful to Michele for putting her faith in me and bringing me on board :)I am excited to be on this lovely lovely team and I hope to inspire you.

You are going to love what she does!
Please leave Deepti some love to welcome her to the Ink Squad!

So what do you think of the team?
I'm SO excited!!
Hold on to your socks...they are about to be knocked off :)

Introducing...

Today the fun continues!!

Today I get to introduce you to someone who is fresh and fun!
Her style is bold and colorful with a dash of whimsy.
She was a 2014 Gallery Idol Top 20 
and she was crowned 2014 Stamping Royalty!

Are you ready to meet her?
Joining us from Canada on a blog called Sharp Designs
please welcome
Marcie Sharp!


I'm very excited to be one of the newest members of the Ink Squad! A little about me... I'm a primarily a card maker that enjoys every minute I get to spend in my small crafting 'corner'. There's not a particular designing style that I gravitate to but I'm definitely most comfortable playing around with clean and simple designs.  I live in a small rural town in Southwestern Ontario, Canada, in the same area where I grew up so there's lots of family and dear friends nearby. I'm excitable and happy by nature- I love to look at the positive side of life. If I'm not cardmaking then I am reading, singing at the top of my lungs, geocaching with my family, daydreaming, and *maybe* enjoying a cocktail!  I often lose my voice due to excessive talking. :)  I'm an early 30's, happily married, stay-at-home momma of 2 kiddos that drive me nutso but are very smart and adorable. 

It's going to be so much fun watching her mojo fly!
Please leave her some love to welcome her to the Ink Squad.

There is still one more!
Join us tomorrow :)

Introducing...

I am really excited to introduce you to the first of our new Girl Fridays! 

It's true, my stamps and dies are based on my love for Clean And Simple design, 
hence the CAS in CAS-ual.
But, there are 3 more letters beyond that dash, 
and I like to think they stand for Utterly Adorable Layers. 
This first new Girl Friday can do CAS, but man oh man, she can do UAL something fierce!
Her mixed media style simply blew me away.  
It's graphic, it's romantic, it's amazing. 

Are you ready to meet her???

Joining us all the way from Italy 
from a blog she calls Scrapsaurus ... 
please welcome 
Zoey Scarpelli!!



My name is Emanuela Zoey, but everyone calls me just Zoey because is shorter...short like me! LOL . I live in a small town near Bologna, Italy. I always been a "creative kid" , since when I was little I remember teachers told my family to let my imagination run wild, and so they did. I started making cards and it got me addicted since the first card I made! I travelled a lot and this gave me the opportunity to find more about the card making/scrap booking world -- which was still a 'niche' world here in Italy. 
While in the beginning I was making only 'traditional' cards, now I jumped into the mixed media world, a world where I can find again the little kid I was, where I can run wild and let my imagination run with me without any rules. I also love to create Layouts, Altered projects, ATCs and TAGS. 
I get inspired by everything that surrounds me and I am not afraid of mistakes, as I find they add a touch to the final artwork, because no one will know, except yourself.
You can find me on InstagramFacebook and over my Blog 

You are going to love her creations!!
Please leave her some love to welcome her to the Ink Squad!

More introductions tomorrow :)

Girl Friday Ink Squad Team

What an incredible DT Call!! 
I have visited more than 80 blogs in more than 20 countries 
so I feel fairly confident in saying I have searched the globe looking for a few new 
Girl Fridays! 

Before I get to the new introductions, 
I want to re-introduce you to a few familiar faces. 
You will be happy dancing to know that these lovelies 
will be continuing to bring you their inky delight with no interruption... 





I'll bet you are all breathing a big sigh of relief to see these faces!
They rock the CFS and I'm completely thrilled that they will be continuing in this amazing journey with me!

Now, about the NEW Girl Fridays... 
When I say it was brutal to narrow down the incredible field of designers to just 3, 
I do mean BRUTAL!

I can tell you they are all amazing, 
they come from 3 different countries and 
they are all bursting at the seams to spill their beans! 
Join us right here tomorrow when I'll introduce the first of our New Girl Fridays!!
See you then :)

In the meantime, be sure to leave some love here for the continuing Girl Fridays.

Happy Monday!!

I can't believe it's September!!  
Raise your hand if this year is FLYing by for you too!

Today I have a great little card from Girl Friday Kelly using Clover...


I just think that sentiment is so awesome.
What a wonderful card to send to someone.
I especially like the little bit of gold thread tied on to the shamrock!

That's it for today.
Enjoy your Monday!
