NEW Ink Colors Available!


I'm so excited about our NEWLY DESIGNED ink pads. Our first shipment sold out in the same day! But we just received a new shipment of the new Adventure Colors as well as Sea Glass.

What's NEW about these you ask? Let me tell you! The old design had a lid that snapped shut - which was sometime difficult for people to open when they were new and nice and tight. The top would swivel around and lock into place so that you would have a nice, raised stamping surface to ink your stamps - but some people had trouble swiveling and would get ink all over the pad and themselves!

The all NEW ink pads have a top and bottom connected by magnetic surface! You simply lift off the top and voila! The empty side can be used as a palette for your re-inker of the same color or to pull color off with a water brush and dilute it to the shade you desire! You will also notice that the pads are slightly larger, giving you even more stamping surface! This new size was designed to fit our NEW Workspace Wonder Organization System (available sometime in October).

I LOVE our new ink pads!!! If you are local, I'd be happy to show them to you in person so that you can see and feel the difference! If you are NOT local, contact me -- we might be able to work something out. 

If you already know that you are going to LOVE these as much as I do, click here to order the new colors you want now! Remember, as of this post, only the 7 new Adventure Colors and Sea Glass are available in the newly designed style. The rest of the colors should be available sometime in October. Stay tuned....

Halloween Treat Bags!

I'm so excited!! I get to introduce the joys of papercrafting to a new group at work! I can't wait!

Our first project will be this very simple treat bag, suitable for putting in your child's lunch box, on their bed, or leaving on a co-worker's desk!

This project, although simple, incorporates a bunch of ideas/techniques! The treat bags are retired and no longer available, but I have a bunch at home - and maybe you do too! They are already decorated with a colorful design, so it doesn't take much to transform them into something special!


I've used several images from our CTMH exclusive Cricut cartridges - which instantly makes them something special! I've used a sandpaper distressing technique on the cardstock to reveal our white core and provide some interest. Then I'm showing how to add dimension and color to your stamped image by double stamping and popping up one word, phrase, or image - in this case "spooky"! I've dovetailed the ends of the spooky piece and added a circle background stamp to the grey cardstock underneath. All of these little things really add a lot to your artwork!

Of course, the Cricut spider hanging down has a black gem on his body to make him even more dimensional and real!

The coordinating tag gives your project a finished touch!

And what a surprise to open the treat bag and find that even the CANDY is decorated!! I've covered gold chocolate coins and Rolos with cricut cut pieces just for fun!

This will be a fun class to get us started! I can't wait! Are you making treat bags this year? I'd love to see what you come up with! If you would like use this idea you can access my Cricut Design Space file here!

Happy Creating!

Blessed Beyond Measure Card Set!

This card set was created using one of the sentiments and one of the leaf images from this month's stamp of the month. It was designed by the fabulous Karen Pedersen and I just had to copy her because -- well -- I want to be just like her when I grow up!

I love the simplicity of the cards, using random stamping for the background and a simple but elegant sentiment embossed in gold! 


The accent of gold shimmer trim really makes it sparkle! Then I added a heart using our new Hearts Thin Cuts set (the smallest heart) and our Gold Glitter Paper. The outline of the heart is dangled from a strand of twine from our new Rustic Home Ribbon Pack, and the inside of the heart is used on another card! Nothing is wasted!



This beautiful stamp set is only available THIS month! You can purchase it at full price for $17.95 OR with a $50 purchase, you can get it for only $5!

Blessed Beyond Measure Stamp of the Month!


This month's stamp of the month is a MUST HAVE! Beautiful sentiments of blessing and gratitude along with fall images will make this a go-to stamp of mine for years to come!


Can't you just see this lovely framed artwork sitting by your front door or on your desk? And wouldn't this make a simple but lovely gift?

You can get your Blessed Beyond Measure stamp set THIS MONTH ONLY for $17.95 or with a $50 purchase it is only $5!
