Kids + School =Mytime

Mytime + Stamping =Happiness

That is me-HAPPY!! I have so much to be thankful for, and I am. I made this during my “happy” mood. I think it is obvious.

Happy colors. Happy day.

I LOVE this box. Its so crisp, clean and cute. Plus I {love} polka dots.

Just looking at this puts me in a good mood 😀

It is VERY rare that I use my own templates twice! Why? Because I usually just make a new one! LOL! But I really loved that Bloomin Basket –found here, so I “revised it” a bit.

This time I scored top portion of the sides. I went right in the middle of the side panel to score (so at 1 inch) and scored down about 1 1/2  inches, so only the top portion folds in (see a bit from the photo?). Then tied the handles together.

C’mon…….isn’t it cute?


I created and partially assembled my bloomin basket. I then stamped Polka Dot Basics on the bottom portion, in olive ink, then assembled box fully.

Beautiful Blooms has to be one of my most favorite flower sets- ever!!The fact that these flowers layer perfectly with the Cuttlebug Flowers #1 die is brilliant. It has gotten SO much use from me 😀 In fact I always want to use it, but then have to say NO! Use another set Lauren. I have lots of awesome flowers sets, but this one always gets me. If you never noticed, I LOVE dimension. I go through at least a hundred dimensionals a week-I swear! LOL! Well worth it.

When I saw Nichole cut apart the leaves off her leaf ribbon and use them on her flowers, well I had to do the same. Just so elegant looking.

Then for the sentiment-I think Women of Life was perfect-with the little dotted sentiments. It matched just right.

Now to fill this with something fun. I have many birthday’s coming up!! So this should give me a head start.

Well I am off to get the kids off to school so I can do some stamping! Tomorrow starts some peeks from C.C. Designs, and don’t miss the MFT special below!


The Sept release is sure to be one of the most fun and funky we’ve ever had, so to celebrate, I thought we’d sweeten the pot even further by offering a HALF PRICE SHIPPING promo on all US orders over $25 through Sept 6th!

Enter the code HALFPRICESHIPPING upon checkout to receive your discount of $2.38. If your order is over $25 or an INTL order, you will still save the $2.38 by entering the code, so everyone wins!

You HAVE to enter the code to receive the discount! The code is all one word, all caps, HALFPRICESHIPPING!!

On Wed night (Sept 3rd) from 9-11pm EST, we will be hosting our newest release party, so grab your favorite cocktail and join us for some fun! Follow this link to the party:

I would recommend an Appletini as the cocktail of the month, and you’ll know why as the MFTeasers start making their way through the gallery.

This months First 50 orders will get a Petaloo treat! Our biggest First 50 prize ever! I will post the ending order number at the beginning of the party so you’ll know in a flash if you qualify.

Just an FYI – there’s a good chance a couple of the sets will sell out, so no pressure, but if you like em, grab em early.

The Sept collection is on special this month for $58.95 but does NOT include the BC Dznys set, so you’ll order that seperately.

Not able to make the party but still want to be part of the action? Check out all the new sets at, under Products, Stamp It Out, Brand Spankin’ New!


Did you all make it to the party?? Boy was it chatty and moving fast. LOTS of amazing samples were added in there. I was in awe of them all.

I still have more from the release to share too! So stay tuned (oh and wait till you see next months stuff! WOW!)

OK signing off!
Enjoy the day!
