I love a good punny sentiment and the new Avery ElleMade with Love stamp set is full of them and an essential if you are a knitter or have a knitter in your life.
For my card, I stamped the ball of yarn with Silver Fox ink (best shade ever) on Silver Fox card stock (best shade ever). Then, I heat embossed a sentiment on Sea Glass card stock and added it to my card front. This looks amazing in person and I just can't help but feel knitty looking at it! How fun is this set?
Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great day!

This set has been so fun to play with! Of course there are coordinating dies as well. :) Now, I know I'm a little biased when it comes to this stamp set (because I designed this one) but I really feel the possibilities are endless!
Here's a few ideas for how it works when you put it together.
For my first card, I wanted to play with the lanterns.

The Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine Go-to Gals said a fond farewell last week. You can see my post here.
I stumbled into crafting because I needed something for myself. A hobby. Something that gave me personal joy and a creative outlet. Something to give me some "me" time. I also wanted something that could take up little space and wouldn't make too much of a mess. Ha!!!
Within a month of picking up the hobby, I started submitting to Paper Crafts and one month later I had my first acceptance.
The rest is history.
While making pretty things out of stamps, ink, and paper is fun, the people are what make this whole hobby so out-of-this-world fantastic. I've made some of my best friends today though paper crafting and I know that Paper Crafts magazine (and Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine) is at the center of that.
I am so thankful for the opportunity to have been a part of the Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine family.
To all of my paper crafting friends (close or not) - I am so thrilled to have been a part of this with you.
To the editors,
I know I said it last week but I'll say it again... I adore and respect and appreciate each one of you. So much. Thank you for everything you did for this community. I wish you all the best.
Now for a few projects...
This card would have been on the March 2015 cover.
This was a card for our Go-to Gal Sparks column. I featured Pretty Pink Posh sequins and dies.
And one last new one - to say thank you - to everyone.
