Solitaire was created by a Microsoft intern who wasn’t paid for the game. Bill Gates liked the idea but complained it was too difficult to win at this game. Original version also included a fake Excel spreadsheet to hide the game from your boss.

Hi friends...
It's going to be 120 degrees here in Arizona this week, so I thought it would be fun to have a HOT SALE for you to enjoy :)
School's out - it's time to craft!

Please read the details carefully...I did my best to be as specific as possible to avoid confusion.

During the sale dates ONLY...the FREE TAM will NOT be the Garden Greetings stamp set.  Instead, orders that are over $60. after sale discount has been applied will receive our Critter Card Puns stamp set for free. 

If you missed Jennifer McGuire's video using our Shaped Card dies and Critter Card Puns stamp set - you won't want to miss it.  It's so amazing!  You will find it HERE

The sale is valid on products currently in stock.  At the moment, the only product that is out of stock is our Cozy Coffee Die. 

The Garden Greetings stamp set is still available to purchase and will become the free TAM set again once the sale ends on June 21st at 8:00pm PT.  We needed to substitute the free TAM product during the sale because it's so hard to anticipate demand. 

(Card shown using our Summer Sampler stamps, Gift Tags 2 Dies and Cool Treats Dies)

Have an awesome week!

Paper Smooches - PS Patrol JUNE 2017

It's PS Patrol time  :)

Check out these beauties...

Isn't this gorgeous?  She used the Zig Blender pens and spritzed her stamp with water

Omgosh...this is so much fun and she created a video - run over to watch it :)

ummm, WOW!  I love every inch of this card...the design, the vellum...the coloring - smiling HUGE
(Green Thumb stamps and dies, Sentiment Sampler)

I LOVE the crisp white with bold color!!  The water colored background really makes the sentiment and die stand out.

Pure adorableness....swooooning <3

Millenials are responsible for the decline in the bar soap industry. They prefer liquid soap because bar soap is deemed “dirty” and for old people.

Marcie Sharp is our guest designer and she created this beautiful card for us this week.  
Unfortunately her package still hasn't arrived in Canada.  (the package that contains all of our new stamps and dies)  I wish I knew what was going on, I have had quite a few customers in Canada with super delayed packages.  Sigh
