Combining passions...

So I have been playing with my newest hobby - metal stamping - quite a bit (see my metal pieces at and decided to combine it with my love of paper crafting.

This is what I have created - a great way to showcase both loves :)

Now I can wear this everywhere I go :)

In the meantime, I am sitting anxiously waiting for all my brand new goodies from the new catalog to arrive - the anticipation is killing me! :) So much fun!!!

Happy Crafting,

Of course, with the color change, this also means that the Combo Packs will be retiring, as well as the Shade Packs. This will also mean the stamp pads and re-inkers will be gone as well. If you need these, you had better hurry! They do have a tendency to sell out FAST!

Stay Tuned!
