Happy Sunday!

I hope you are enjoying the long weekend. 
We are studying for finals. 
I can't believe the school year is ending...already!
Didn't we just get back from winter break? 

Girl Friday Virginia has a couple of super fun cards for you today. 

How cute is that?!
She used our Fun-Fetti Fri-Dies to create little puzzle pieces. 
Wouldn't this be fun for creating cards with your kids or grandkids?

Oh gosh, all those pretty colors make me happy!  
She used distress inks to color the links from our Lovely Links Fri-Dies 
(Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean, Cracked Pistachio and Squeezed Lemonade)
The sentiment in the middle is from our Lovely set.

Thanks for visiting with us!!

Happy Friday!!

So a few days ago, Girl Friday Jingle created today's project. 
My jaw dropped when I saw it, 
and it took all my restraint not to post it immediately.

Aren't you proud of me?! LOL!

Today, the waiting is over and I get to share...hooray!!

Isn't it gorgeous?!
So to make this, she used our Mon Ami stamp set 
She used a distressed gold foil technique with heat and bond powder and gold foil. 
I haven't the slightest idea how to do this, 
but I'm hoping she might do a tutorial for us soon. 

So let's start chanting...

 Leave that in our comments and I'll see if I can twist her arm ;)

Happy Wednesday!!

Today's project will have you in the mood to grab a paintbrush, 
and have some fun with it.

Girl Friday Zoey, 
 got clean and simple in a clean and messy sort of way :)
She used a few rough brush strokes to create really cool backgrounds for her project.

Doesn't the brushed background look terrific behind the gold embossing?
I'm loving what she did with our Cupid's Arrows set!!
I think stamping only half of the heart image looks super fun on this tag. 

So the awesome thing about this tag, 
is that it will of course make any present look wonderful, 
but I think it can also double as a pretty cool bookmark!

What a great set! That brilliant gold is just divine!

So simple, so bold, so awesome!!

Happy Sunday!

I'm really excited to share today's projects designed by Girl Friday Angie!!
I think it would make a wonderful 
ensemble for any age of grad from kindy to college, 
boy or girl.

Let's take a looksie...

A card and gifty bag!
Now that bag is the perfect size to slip some cash, a check or even a gift card into. will fit right inside the card too :)

Let's take a closer peek

Angie used our new Sassy Smiles set for that big bold sentiment 
which she stamped directly over the stitched stars from Twinkle. 
The die cut stars from our Stars Fri-Dies and a few well placed (oops, I mean random) sequins add the pefect amount of bling and pop.

the little gifty bag features negative die cuts from our Fun-Fetti Fri-Dies 
backed by the same fun polka dot pattern paper she used on the card. 
I love that she added another sentiment from our Twinkle set.

Look how fun this looks!

Happy Wednesday!
Hooray! We've made it halfway through the week!

Girl Friday Marcie 
has created a super duper cute and uber happy card using our 
Love Notes stamp set.

oh my goodness, those brightly colored notes make me smile!!
I love the soft shadowed affect she achieved by stamping it all in a soft gray first.
And the little curve she gave to the sentiment by shaping it on her stamp block
works wonderfully. 

Love this!!
Be sure to stop by Marcie's blog, she's got more goodness to share!

Happy Tuesday!

I'm really excited about today's projects! 
Deepti had a whole lot of fun with our newest release. 
I love how she combined a Sassy Smiles sentiment with 
our Lovely Links Fri-Dies, Mon Ami Fleur Fri-Dies and Mon Ami stamp set. 
Check it out...

The pretty die cut borders look so awesome laid at an angle. 
And the little blue hearts floating up to the top of the card 
were cut the same time she cut the borders. 
Each border cuts a bazillion hearts at once!
Now how fun is that?
This awesome die set is currently on re-order and will be back in stock soon. 
If you'd like to be contacted as soon as it's back, simply use our 
Contact Us button 
at the top of our website to get your name added to the growing list :)

This next card made me gasp. 

Oh gosh, the negative die cut beanstalks from our Stalk Up Fri-Dies 
with the pretty water color washed background is simply dreamy!
And there are a few more of those hearts from her first project :)
The big bold Smile stamped in white really draws the white background from her die cut images, 
and the sentiment stamped in black is actually just a portion of a sentiment found in our 
Sassy Smiles. 
A fun reminder that you can do some selective inking to get even more mileage out of your sentiment stamps :)

Have a super Tuesday!

Happy Mother's Day!!

These gorgeous flowers in our new Mon Ami set make me think of tulips, 
but Girl Friday Virginia thinks lotus flowers. 
I can see that too, especially after seeing this beautiful lotus wonderland she's created...

First she embossed the flowers and leaves in white on watercolor paper, 
then she used Spectrum Aqua Watercolor Markers to color them in.
Wow, right?!

Here's a closeup so you can see more of the detail
and how she also added sequins and white dots using 
Pico Embellisher

If you don't know the story that goes with this gorgeous Mon Ami stamp set, 
you can catch up here :)

Have a lovely Sunday!!

Happy Friday!

In honor of Mother's Day this Sunday, 
Girl Friday Jingle
got her ink on with our brand new 
Mon Ami 
and one of our oldie but goodies
Mum's the Word...

I think the medallion of tulips she created using the little bud flower from Mon Ami
looks wonderful in that soft gray as a background. So pretty!
The sentiment is from Mum's the Word which happens to be on sale through Mom's Day!

Next up, she used another pretty flower from Mon Ami 
and a really pretty sentiment from our brand new 
Lovely Greetings
(which is back in stock after being sold out, but flying off the shelf again! )

I'm kinda in love with her gray and pink color scheme. 
This would be a great card for mom or a good friend or even a teacher, or 
a co-worker, a sister...are you getting the jist that this card would celebrate anyone 
who you think is special :)

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there. 
I hope your day is awesome!!

Sassy Smiles
Whole Shebang
Lovely Greetings
Truth Is

I'm also pleased to tell you that all the orders from the release have now been shipped! 
Start stalking your mailmen :)

Girl Friday Zoey has a darling card to share with you today 
that features
 Love Notes
Heart Notes Fri-Dies 
and Bubble Box Fri-Dies

Pure yum, right?
 I think the bright colored pattern paper looks great behind the tone on tone craft.
 I also think the combination of twine and stitching really adds a lot to this.

That's it for today, have a good one!

Wow! What a weekend! 
The new stuff is flying off the shelves!! 
A couple of the new stamps sold out on Friday, Yes Friday!!
 I had a backup order in place which is on the big brown truck as we speak, 
and scheduled to arrive on Tuesday,

Today, I have a really fun card from Girl Friday Kelly 
using our ever popular

Ka-Boom and Woot Woot

I love how she created a fun little list using 
sentiments from all the sets in bright colors, 
 and then added little doodly numbers.


Ok, break over for me...back to packaging up that happy mail!
