I have to warn you, this is a long post! The August kit and add ons were packed full of great background options! I couldn't pass on that great Pretty Moon Spiral Bold Print background stamp (my first traditional background stamp). The stencil included in the kit is great as well, and those mist sprays!!!… Continue reading Backgrounds-Hero Arts August MMH kit
This week the Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp's is back to school, featuring Avery Elle products.

I am going to… Continue reading Simon Says Stamp’s Wednesday Challenge Back to School

But, it quickly became obvious to me that I would… Continue reading Craft Space Makeover!

My co-workers seem to be procreating at an alarming rate, so I've been busy making "newborn," cards. I only had one set of stamps that could be used for baby cards.
