I first want to send a big THANKS to all of you. It is Thanksgiving here in my neck of the woods, and I want you to know that I appreciate you stopping by my little blog and spending time with me.

Personalized Stamps! Giveaway + Discount Code

I have shared on my blog before my love of personalized stamps for the back of handmade cards.

One of my favorite sellers for personalized stamps is Twig and Linen. (Formaly known as Kiss and Tell Cards.) Karissa is very nice and talented, so I was so happy when she said I could once again do a giveaway and discount code for my readers. I love to share!

Turns out she has some new great designs – offered both in wood-handled and self-inking. (I LOVE the option.) You can see them all in her etsy shop HERE, but these are my favorites:

I am ordering that first one with a big “J” and then “handmade with love,” my name and my blog address.

To see some that I have ordered in the past, check HERE. I still use and love them! This is my favorite…

Again – check the Twig and Linen shop – she has many other designs. (If you knit or sew, she has some great ones for that too.)


Karissa at Twig and Linen also gave me a discount code so you can get your own personalized stamp. Just go HERE to her etsy shop and use the discount code “jmink20″ during check out for 20% off!! (Code is good now through 9/30/13.)


Giveaway time! Karissa said I could give away TWO wood-handled personalized stamps – winner’s choice! Just leave a comment here by 9/10/13 at 11:59pmEST for a chance to win. Good luck!


Just a heads up that the 15% off discount on all Hero Arts goodies ends today (8/31/13)! Just use the code “HAHOL13″ and you will get 15% off all Hero Arts, including the new products HERE. There are lots of new things – inks, stencils, holiday stamps and more.

I thought I would share two more cards using some of Hero Arts’ newest stamps. The first one is from the Hero Arts blog and uses one of my favorite new holiday stamps

Isn’t that tree fun? It was designed by my awesome friend Shari. I popped up some of the circles and added gems and Glossy Accents.

I also used a small border stamp to create the background and matching envelope. Gotta stretch those stamps!

This next one is simple simple simple. I used a few Hero Arts Shadow Inks and one of my favorite new stamps – the Gratitude Design Stamp.

It is amazing what a bit of stitching can add…

Also… Hero also released some new Shadow Inks. You know how much I love those! We now have Just Rust, Pumpkin Pie, Silver and Gold. The Just Rust and Silver are my favorites. Yummmmm…

Gotta run – lots of fun stuff to do with the family this weekend. Do you have plans to stamp? I am hoping to find some time.

New crafty goodies make me happy. And I think they may make you happy, too.

Such. Good. Stuff.

That’s all. Just wanted to share. :)

See you soon.

New Goodies Alert!

Just sharing some new products and news with you – just things I excited about and thought that you might be, too.

First of all, Simon Says Stamp has some new awesome dies in stock. I have been longing for big bubble dies for so long. I can’t wait to use them! They are perfectly sized (approximately 3″x4″) for Project Life… but also works great for scrapbooking… and the proportions are great for a card…

Also, I am hoping you heard the big news: two of my favorite crafty powerhouses have teamed up – Kelly Purkey and Simon Says Stamp! SSS will be bringing to the industry Kelly’s fabulous product visions. I love both Kelly and Heidi so much… this makes my heart so happy.

First up, here are some of Kelly’s newest stamps. (I love that the first one says “nerds” in it – perfect for my family.)

And… for the biggest news! Kelly will have a bi-monthly Project Kit. This kit will be overflowing with lots of crafting goodies including real letterpress pieces, embellishments and more. I love the idea of her “Stacked Cards” – thirty 3″x4″ pieces in a variety of materials – ready to go on a card or scrapbook page. Head HERE for more info.

Lots of exciting stuff, huh? I can’t wait to play with it all!

New Class + the Perfect Stamp Set

Hello! Just hear to quickly share two bits of goodness.

First, registration has opened for Pattern Play – the newest class from Online Card Classes. This class is all about patterned papers… and every card has a video! Only $16. Head HERE for more info…

Next… just a heads up on a new stamp set that I am very excited about. I have been longing for a stamp set like this for ages. Ages! (I may or may not have put a bug in their ear about it…) It has everything you need to decorate your envelope before putting it in the mail. Adore it. Kristina knocked it outta the park on this one!

See you soon!
