Well, the only good thing about time passing so quickly is that it's time for a new stamp set release! Woo Hoo! Here's a video sharing the new set with you...

Here are a few samples from the team...

Jeanne created this great card. I love how she "Built" the tree. ;)

Pillow Boxes are my favorite type of boxes and I love how Joana has a tag on this one that says, "a tweet for you". So cute!

Deb's work always blows me away! I love how she created a whole scene on this card. She even used the butterfly from the Getwell2you stamp set!

Here's a close up of the set:

trees2build has 32 stamps on a 4x6 inch sheet. Largest stamp is approx. 3.25 inches tall.

I wanted to share this adorable card by Guest Design Team Member, Emily. I LOVE how she used the robots2build set to create the flowers, the chick's arms from the eggs4Easter set for the leaves and the grass from the eggs4Easter set!!!!

On a personal note, we are celebrating at our house! It was just announced that my oldest daughter was named the Varsity Cheer Captain! ;) Ahhh....the 10 years of cheer payments really paid off! ;)

Happy Stamping!

Woo Hoo! It's {Special} Release Time!

I love this time of the month! {That sounds funny!} ;)

It's when I get to announce the {Special} Release Stamp Sets!

This month, there are FOUR {Special} Release Stamp Sets!

Check out the video to see them in action....

{Can't see the video?!? Click here!!!!}

Here are some incredible cards by our Design Team...

This awesome card is by Guest Designer, Emily Niehaus. I love how she used the kite stamp from the icons4us along with the "Go Fly a Kite" from the kites2fly stamp set.

This card was created by Design Team Member and Coordinator, Jeanne Streiff. She is one of the best when it comes to coloring! Isn't her robot adorable?!?!

This card was also created by Jeanne. What a great idea to use the icons4us stamp set as ice cream! She then used the Youare2kind stamp set for the sentiment.

Deb Felts created this fantastic card using the robots2build Stamp Set. I love how she used pop up dots to make the robots body look 3-D. ;)

Regular price for the robots2build, Youare2kind and icons4us stamp sets is only $12.95. {Club Members pay only $10.95}

Regular price for the funky4numbers stamp set is only $9.95 {Club Members pay only $8.45}

Here are the stamp sets up close....





I'm going to have a {Special} Announcement pretty soon! I can't wait to share! As soon as we get a few more things finalized, I'll be able to spill! ;)

Big Hugs,
