On Saturday's Facebook Live, I created a stationery box for gifting to your favorite teacher, graduate, or someone special. This week, I'll be making the cards and tags to go inside, using the Hoot Hoot Hooray Stamp Set. This stamp set is just adorable and great for all occasions, from birthday to new baby. Now...you won't find this in the main catalog. This is part of the Experience Creativity Projects, found over on my website. The simple line art is perfect for beginning stampers who want to try their hand at coloring. Or, it's good for more advanced crafters who want to add a little cuteness to their collection. Either way, the Hoot Hoot Hooray Stamp Set is perfect for this week's projects.

One of the best things about having a shelf (ok, 2 shelves) full of stamp sets is having the ability to find just the right images and sentiments to express exactly what you're feeling. Today, I created a sympathy card using the Woven Heirlooms and Dandelion Wishes Stamp Sets. I read that dandelions are the perfect symbol for how something so small and unassuming can withstand great hardships. I think that makes it perfect for a sympathy card, don't you?

Today on my Facebook Live, I finished my July Paper Pumpkin Series by making 3 more cards. This time, I used the Woven Threads Paper from the kit, and added stamps from the Woven Heirlooms set. This Paper Pumpkin has been so much fun to play with . I liked having the three different patterns in the kit for added variety.
If you haven't already signed up for Paper Pumpkin, now is the best time to do it. You won't want to miss a single holiday kit. Speaking of kits, the August kit makes gift bags and tags. If you want to make cards, be sure to grab the 24-card Gift of Fall add-on bundle that coordinates perfectly with next month's kit.

Nothing says WOW! Wednesday better than a little bling. And if you're like me, you hoard every scrap of foil and glimmer paper, breaking it for only your best cards. This great big gear die in the Garage Gears Thinlets make a big impact. And don't you love how the oil stained (or is it antiqued?) look of the Classic Garage Designer Series Paper? Looks like all the Lad's work pants if you ask me!
