Join instructors Kristina Werner, Jennifer McGuire, Debby Hughes, and friends, to discover just how far you can stretch your stamps—whether you’re an expert stamper or just getting started. In Stretch Your Stamps 2, you’ll learn how particular styles of stamps can be used in a variety of creative ways to expand your card-making skills. Over the course of this two-week session, you’ll be introduced to techniques and concepts through expert instructor videos, and then build on your new knowledge with the help of inspiring guest artist examples. Stretch Your Stamps 2 includes over 30 videos and 40 card ideas, along with instructional PDFs, a forum, galleries, shopping discounts, prizes and more.

I am so stinkin’ giddy about Lawn Fawn’s newest release that will be available at the end of August. Their last release was so impressive and this one looks even better. Watch their blog for fun sneak peeks! (Stay tuned for a Product Release Close-Up video.)
One of the best ways to get involved in the cardmaking industry is to play along with challenge blogs. I love this new one - Tag You’re It. A few of my favorite artists are on the team! I don’t make tags often, so this is a good one to inspire me.
I know many of you were waiting for THIS die set to be back in stock. Hurry!

This live event at Simon Says Stamp will have lots of awesome classes and much more! Classes will be taught by Tim Holtz, Shari Carroll, me!, Lawn Fawn’s Kelly Marie Alvarez, OWH’s Sandy Allnock, and Simon Says Stamp’s Stephanie Klauck. I will be co-teaching a stencil class with my friend Shari Carroll. (I couldn’t teach more classes since it is a busy time of year for me but am so happy I can be a part of it still!
