Sending Prayers and Love

I look forward to this day every year...Scrapbook Expo is here in the metro Atlanta area and it is time for an annual shopping spree!  I need this.  Since Archiver's closed in the area there just aren't many opportunities for shopping of the latest and greatest paper crafting schtuff.  I love ordering online but let's face can't touch or feel it!

If I find any great things I'll let you all know!

In the meantime here is a card made with the Simon Says Stamp Kit for July.

 I loved this kit.  I absolutely adored the stamp set that was included and think it will be a keeper and one I'll use many times.
What I love about the card kits is that you are given a sheet for inspiration...and a host of bloggers usually do a blog train sort of thing and share projects made with the kit but it's not a kit where you are instructed to take paper A and glue it to paper B and stick embellishment C on.  Basically you get a packet of embellishments, some 6 by 6 printed or specialty papers, some 8 1/2 by 11 cardstock that matches, and generally other little treats which might include a marker, an ink pad, some paint...sequins, etc.  My husband says that when my box comes I look like a little kid on Christmas day!  LOL!  Anyway, the kit gives you some supplies but it's up to you to do the magic.

So here is my magic...

 I used a Simon Says Stamp postage stamp die to cut out the window.  I stamped the little envelopes with Memento Luxe ink which I embossed with clear embossing powder.  I love the little envelopes and the stamp kit comes with several of cute!
Here's a closeup of the little envelopes:

Well, that's it for today...time to get my shopping shoes on and get outta here!

Happy Crafting and Keep Creating!


  1. I like the cut out window & how you created the paper bow to stamp sentiment on. Have fun shopping. Look forward to finding out what new things you saw & what you bought.

  2. LOve that card. Do you sell any of your cards? If so, I'd take 4 of these.....seems I have so many anymore that need a card like that! I understand if you don't want to make more.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I appreciate the time it took you to leave me a note and I will enjoy reading it. Happy Crafting!
