Do You Wanna Build A Snowman?

This week we are going on a winter wonderland adventure. Whether your region has new fallen snow or no snowflakes in the forecast you can find them here. Come on lets go and play!

Our stamp set by the same name has interchangeable heads, bodies, and arms mean you can make a ton of frosty snowmen to celebrate Christmas or Winter. Perfect for scrapbooking those snowy days at home, too.

Inspiring Angels Friday

We have a few more inspirational stamps with a focus on heavenly attendants, though not traditional images of angels they remind us of the Christmas story.

This House-Mouse Designs stamp, Angel Mice, is a cute reminder of the visiting angels in the fields. Kristine Reynolds created a card using this stamp that is so sweet with perfectly matched holly paper. Click the card image to take you instructions on how to create one of your own cards with this Angel Mice stamp.

Celebrating Christmas

The focus on our inspiration week directs us to the sacred Christmas stamps from our Inspiration collection. The beautiful nativity and manger scene stamps are great for creating ornaments, greeting cards and decor for the holidays. They are also perfect to add on Christmas Program scrapbook pages, too.

Doodling Your Holiday Styles

This season is a gift-giving extravaganza and the PenPattern Gift stamp is great to use as a gift tag, on a card or how about those scrapbook pages where children are opening up their gifts. It’s a versatile design and can be used for gift-giving year around!

Doodle of a Holiday!

Welcome to another full week of fun PenPattern designs with the holidays in mind!

Our PenPattern collection has enough doodles designed into them to color and go, and they also have clear spaces to create your own doodling. If you want to add doodles but find it difficult, stamp using one of our complementing PenPattern Background style stamps. Today our focus is on this adorable PenPattern Moose in the act of balancing his gift-giving load.

Krissy Fossmeyer has a great holiday coloring of PenPattern Moose and she has instructions on how she made it here.
