Happy Everything

I love this stamp for several reasons.  1.  It fits for just about any occasion  2. It’s fun and 3. Every time I use it I think of my sweet friend Debbie W. because she is the one who gave it to me.  :)

HappyEverything I created these quick artist trading cards using scraps of paper left from another design (my atc leftovers box of bits is getting crazy full!)

I put a strip of O’So Sticky Tape across the paper and put ribbon that was slightly smaller on top of it.  Then I added micro beads to the edges for a fun textury border and finished it off with a premade cupcake sticker from Jolees. 

My original idea was to use the Jolees for inspiration and make my own.  Maybe I will.  Someday.  :)

Have Some Tea

I love this darling play on words used by PWA designer Julie Imsland.

TeajulieImslandJulie accented the bottom edge of her card using a clear drying glue and a mixture of “tea colored” micro beads

I was inspired by Julie’s card to brew a cup of tea.  Autumn has definitely arrived in the Snoqualmie Valley!  Brrrr.

Paperback O’So Sticky Tape It’s Now Or Never

oso paperback sticky tape sheetWe are still trying to pull together enough pre-orders to bring in the O'So Sticky Paperback tape sheets!  

Paperback tape sheets are wonderful for die cutting sticky shapes you'd never want to cut by hand.

O’So Paperback is the exact same tape as our regular sheets and Mega Rolls but it has a white paper liner on both sides which makes cutting with scissors easier and digital die cutting possible.  Hand punches also work but expect it to get gummy and have some Goo Gone nearby.  Thumb lever punches seem to work the best for me.

Between my Vagabond, Cricut and O’So Sticky Paperback Tape sheets I can get myself into some really amazing artwork that otherwise would never happen! Ü  But alas, even my own personal stash is nearly depleted.

If you've been wishing we would bring it back, now is your chance to help make that happen!  Place your preorder on our website here:

Currently we have a handful of the Mega Rolls in stock - you might want to grab one while you are there!
