It’s not very often that I put on my scrapbooking hat, but when I do it’s with passion!
My boss & his wife recently had a baby girl and I thought it would be fun to make him a mini-album (brag book) that he could leave on the corner of his desk.
This book was made using the Cricut Artiste catridge and Ballerina, Black & Charcoal Cardstock, Seasonal 2 Mix-In papers and assorted stamp sets and yes, I added a second ring & ribbons to complete it.
I’d like to throw a shout out to my customer Barbara who had the chipboard album and didn’t know what she’d use it for. I think I put it to good use – Thank You!!!
Today I’m sharing two cards that I made with the There Are No Words Stamp set. This “A” sized stamp set is retiring at the end of August and it’s kind of tucked in the back of the Seasonal Expression and easily missed.
I loved the simplicity of this set and well, to put it bluntly, sympathy cards are my least favorite to make.
If you haven’t updated your sympathy stamps in a while – I hope you’ll consider adding these to your shopping cart before they retire.
What do you do when the Close to My Heart Seasonal Expressions 2 is getting ready to retire. You make sure that everyone has checked, double checked and triple checked the list to get their favorite items and then you start creating with your favorite items.
One of my favorite stamp sets was Wild & Punny. This sassy stamp set was full of cute animals, wild puns & also had thin cuts to match.
I picked five of my favorite patterns from Make It From Your Heart Vol 4 and decided to feature some retiring papers and one of each of the animals.
I really had fun making this set of cards and although I will miss the papers & Colors these stamps are so versatile you’re sure to see them around for a long time.
Do you have a favorite? I’m a little partial to the flamingo & the cow. If you haven’t purchased this set yet you can click here to be directed to my webpage and get it added to your shopping cart.

My card was made using the retired Tommy Paper Packet and the Epic Birthday stamp set. I have been going through my older paper packets and trying to use them up. I’m also trying to restore my birthday card stash for the 2nd half of the year. I really love the sketch from Try Stamping on Tuesday and hope that you will play along too.
