So excited to finally be able to order it (they wanted to make sure it was perfect before releasing it) - if you want me to add it to my order for you, let me know by Saturday!  (note though that due to personal circumstances, I will not be able to deliver your order before Oct 7th) but you can order directly from my website and have it delivered directly to your door!

Here's an overview video to watch in the meantime! (if seeing this via email, come to my blog to watch the youtube there)

It's a New Month!

Hello!  September always seems more like a new beginning to me than January but I guess that's because we always started school in September and it's ingrained after a few years of doing that!

Anyway, I digress ... a few new stamp sets for you this month and a bit of news regarding our forthcoming Cricut cartridge ... remember, these stamp sets are only available this month - after September 30th, they're gone!

Family is Forever - September Stamp of the Month, $19.75 or $5.00 with a $50 qualifying purchase


30 Years of Happy, yours FREE with a $30 stamp order

I'll have some samples for you in the coming days!

Also the latest update we have from Corp. on the Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge, which we are all anxiously awaiting, is that it will be made available to order, hopefully, fingers crossed, by the middle of September.

Have a wonderful day!

This summer is speeding by so quickly!

Today's card is a quick 3x3" that you can whip up in no time using Lagoon Hearts Washi tape, the fabulous stamp set You Mean the World to Me, Glacier ink and a scrap strip of Yuletide Carol paper.

I also wanted to let you know about a wonderful special we have for the month of September celebrating Close to My Heart's 30th Anniversary ... with a $30 stamp order, you will receive this C-size stamp set for free!  Who doesn't like a free stamp set (or free anything for that matter!)

Have a splendid day!
