Hi All! Today we would like to do a recap on our little celebration in New York City in honor of our 3rd year anniversary!

Our mascots, Mr. Penguin and Mr. Panda did a wonderful job showcasing our projects!

Everyone was able to see these cards up close, feel and even shake them! 

It sure felt festive with these little reindeer and elves! 

What's a party without some food?

 We also had a pop-up shop for a little shopping!

Many traveled near and far!

It looks like everyone had a good time seeing old friends and meeting some new friends!

We give our BIG thanks to our special guest Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker
who drove many miles to attend our party! She is a great inspiration to us ALL!

Kryssi was also doing her water coloring magic! Ooh La La!

What's a party without giveaways?!! Thank you to our wonderful sponsors!
Simon Says Stamp, Online Card Classes, Marker Pop, Ellen Hutson and The Ink Pad

The winners were so excited to win these awesome prizes!

The Ink Pad also came to join in the fun!

We also had Simon Says Stamp in the house! Lauren and Chelsea flew in from Ohio! We were super thrilled to meet them!

Thank you all again for making our 3rd year a memorable one!

Angela & Kryssi


INTRODUCING: Little Edibles

We've got two tremendously cute cards designed by Angela to introduce Little Edibles today. I mean, how incredibly cute are these little food images? You can so many in this one stamp set and they are perfect for so many uses! Look what Angela did her using the panda from Pandamonium... juggling food! Super cute!

Angela used the little circular brush strokes from Brush Strokes for the kraft background and used the bigger strokes for a splash of color behind the little edibles icons. I really love what she did here!

Because the stamps are so many, yet detailed, they are perfect for planners as well! I wanted to showcase some samples using planners but I just received a 2016 planner, lol! Is it too soon to fill it 2 months ahead? I hope to share some planner pages with you soon!


INTRODUCING: Brush Strokes, Merry Script CC

Brush Strokes is a fun new background and pattern building set. The brush strokes gives a great organic feel to the traditional polka dot!

You can create a seamless pattern like this card here.

I also used the new Merry Script Creative Cuts die. It was cut three times and stacked for a teensy bit of a 3d look. The stocking is from Festive Mice. I also pulled out my Jolly and Merry stamp set to finish the sentiment. I LOVE how this card turned out!

You can also use the single brush image son this set to create a fun card like this here.

I think the brush strokes look really fantastic in our pigment inks!

The sentiment and the little ornaments are from the new Jingle Greetings


INTRODUCING: Blogging Buddies

Hey everyone, today we're showing you Blogging Buddies which was designed specifically for you in mind! It's a cute little set for quick and easy notes to express your friendship to our virtual and crafty friends! I would love to send these cards to ALL of you!

Especially that middle card would be handy today at our NYC party!

Now how flippin' cute is this card that Angela designed?! She created a card within a card!

That's super genius and so funny!!!

What would you do with this set? Leave a comment below!


INTRODUCING: Festive Mice + Window Watching CC

Last May, we met the dynamic duo of Dot Dash Design at the New York Stationery Show. Like I said previously, we were immediately drawn to their beautiful designs and presentation. Okay, I seriously made a beeline to their booth! Lucky us, they were as delightful as they were professional! We fell in love with their naughty mice and asked them if they would design some holiday mice for us... and here we are! They did a brilliant job with Festive Mice down to the punny sentiments!

I made a cute little scene looking through our new Window Watching Creative Cuts die set! There are optional shutters I can use, but I opted not to here. In this scene, we are taking a peek inside the holiday home of this cute little mouse decorating his tiny tree with a star made out of cheese! LOL!

The snow splatter on the outside makes this scene even warmer as we imagine the little mouse must be all warm and toasty inside. The window definitely evokes that warm and cozy feel for the scene inside!!

Here's a better look, the Window Watching Creative Cuts die comes with a 16 panel window, an awning (folds out to create a 3d effect), a planter (folds out to create a 3d effect) and one shutter (you cut twice to create double shutters). You'll love all the little details in this design!

Angela used a caroling mouse as the focal point wrapped in a wreath from Charmed. Don't you love the cheesy background she created?
