Special Delivery!

I was excited to see this package in the mail on Monday!  I ordered a few things from the Amuse Studio April Collection on Friday and already had it in my hands on Monday afternoon!  Speedy shipping is one of the things I love about Amuse Studio!  

I picked the Happy Spring stamp set and also the matching dies, the Bunny Candy Package die, the card stock assortment of new patterned card stock and the thin washi tapes.  I can't wait to get into the studio to play with these new products!  Visit to see all the new products for Spring.

Color Me Washi Tape

I ordered this fun new Dear Lizzy Color Me washi tape from Impress.  I love the black floral but if you want you can color it for a very fun, pretty result.  I used Tombow markers to color the washi tape and thought it turned out lovely.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink Think Big Favorites #6

Easter Treats

Have you seen this adorable Bunny Candy Package Die from Amuse Studio?   Treats and paper-crafting seem to go hand-in-hand.  The new Bunny Candy Package is going to make you hop up and down... it's THAT cute!  All the new products in the April Collection will be available tomorrow, March 24th on the Amuse Studio website.  
For a quick and easy treat, you can cut the Bunnies out of Sugar white cardstock and dress them up with a bit of baker's cording.
Check this out... it's genius!  Lisa used a lollipop inside and attached the banner to the stick.  I love how she added the mini bow dies... as a bow tie and also as a hair bow. 
Melissa added googly eyes and a pearl sticker for the bunny tail.

Our stamp/scrapbook store was recently sold to a new owner.  The previous owner retired and thankfully there was a customer that was interested in carrying on!  Inspire Papercrafting has a fresh look and I'm excited to support a local business.

New Tape Runner!

New tape runner in the house!  Jennifer McGuire recommended this tape runner and I'm loving it!  
I will still use my Tombow tape runners but I love the bigger size of the Kokuyo Dotliner.  They are both the dot liner type of tape.  I chose the Kokuyo Dotliner Long which holds more tape.  I ordered the Kokuyo runner from Simon Says Stamp.  

Thankfully the refills are very easy to change!  The cost of the refills isn’t bad. The Long Dot Liner Refill has 36m of adhesive for $8.99… so about $.25/meter.

I'm Back...

Good Morning!  I'm back!  Yesterday I went thru a boat load of mail and found these two lovely St. Patrick's Day cards among all the bills and junk mail.  It was a bright spot believe me!  I'll be back to regular blogging soon!

Happy March!

A quick St. Patrick's Day card using patterned paper and washi tape along with a shamrock die and a sentiment!  The sentiment is a wood mount stamp by Impression Obsession.

Pretty Candy!

Look at this pretty Valentine packaging of candy from Shari!  
I hate to open this because it is so pretty but I'm dying to see what kind of candy she has inside.  Isn't it cute how she lined up the messages for each heart?  She's a clever one!
