My oh my what a wonderful day!


WOW! Am I ever excited to share this stationary set!?? Thank you to Papertrey Ink and Nicole Heady for awarding me a Guest Star Stamper spot this month. Such an honor!!




This stationary set was created with my daughter's elementary teacher in mind. She once told me that she actually keeps bees and I just knew the Honey bee set from Papertrey would be perfect for her.


The new Simply Stationary stamp set has several different borders to nestle images or initials in for custom stationary and lots of great single detail images in which to finish off your designs.


This acrylic stationary box is actually a repurposed packaging box that the Papertrey stamp sets are shipped in. I loved being able to reuse this great box. It easily fit 6 notecards and 6 envelopes inside.

The below shot is my pile of supplies I had cut and ready to go using Cricut for the circles and the scallop circles. I used the swiss dots cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss the white cardstock and a Martha Stewert scallop punch for the black scallops. The next step was to stamp everything and then adhere it all together. Designing the layout takes the most time but, once that is done, assembling is a snap! I will definitely recreate this layout in the future.
Thanks so much for stopping by and looking :)
