Are you excited?  It’s only the second day of the countdown, and already the excitement is building!  And what could be more exciting than adding Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics to the product line-up?  Basic shapes are anything but basic when you add a little detailing to them, and Stitched Circle STAX have it all sewn up.

The latest in card fashion, Blueprints 10, will keep your projects on the cutting edge.  Each month we try to step it up with unique components that make your crafty heart happy, and this month is no exception.  Prepare to squeal with delight as you see how our Designers have turned the Blueprints 10 Die-namics into the must-have accessory of the season.

Sometimes bigger really is better, and sometimes more is just right!  Lisa Johnson has taken her Peaceful Wildflowers and super-sized them, just for YOU!  You loved her previous set and have begged us for a bigger version, so she’s happily obliged.  The new, larger sizes in Grand Peaceful Wildflowers will stand out on your cards or projects, but can also be combined with the original stamp set and companion Die-namics to create the perfect paper garden.

Send a heartfelt greeting to your close-knit friends with this new Pure Innocence stamp set.  She’ll keep you in stitches!

I decided to break out the newest Blueprints and the Celebrate Big stamp set to create the card below.  I incorporated some scraps of patterned paper I had lying around, and added different colors of card stock to give it more visual interest. I love the depth the colors and textures provide to an otherwise simplistic layout.
