Everyday Chicks Get Around

Everyday Chicks Blog Banner

Going out into the world with the whole family can be such an adventure! Keeping track of your chicks, is always a challenge as well. With our Everyday Chicks and their handy cutting dies, you can celebrate the victory of getting everyone together for Mother’s Day or just getting out of the house in the morning! Everyday Chicks can do it all!

Check out a few cards by our own Fran Seiford showing the chicks in action. You can click on the picture to visit the project on our website with complete supply lists and instructions.

You’ll notice on these cards that our terrific chicks are designed especially to complement our Greetings Galore Perfectly Clear Stamps™ Set. This set of greetings has a clean, crisp font that goes perfectly with our fluffy chicks and provides a wonderful amount of versatility when used on its own or with any other stamps!

A Sunny Hello!

Sunny Hello Stamp Banner

Welcome to a brand new catalog! Our April catalog is full of fun stamps, inspiration, and awesome greetings that will become classics in your collection. We’re starting off this week with a Sunny Hello. This was a huge favorite with our Design Team, and we had some fun with it in the office as well. Let’s take a look at this great image that comes wood mounted or on our wonderful Stampendous Cling Rubber. It’s a great image and measures about 4-1/4″ Wide and 2-3/4″ tall. It’s got a bright spot of sun to color, and bold greetings already done for you. All you need is your Picasso Stencil to add a cloud background and you’re good to go.

Spring Mash-Up!

Dogwood Birds Banner

We’re still excited about releasing our new April Catalog for Summer, but we’ve still got some great samples you haven’t seen from our January Spring release. This week our Design team will treat you to all the inspiration from our October and January catalogs that they haven’t posted yet. And it’s a wonderful Spring-a-palooza!

One thing we haven’t shared enough yet, because they’re our favorite thing right now, is our Spring Borders Die Set. Fran herself had an opportunity to play with these this last week, and she created a terrific collection of even more ideas for these wonderful edge dies.

You remember that the set looks like this –

Spring Borders Die Set Packaged
DCP1009 Spring Borders Cutting Dies

It has 6 dynamic cutting dies for a huge variety of looks and uses. Well, Fran said, “what if I just get into the stash of scraps we have and go crazy?” She cut a ton of strips and just had a great time layering them on to cards. Card-making doesn’t get easier than this!! It’s all about finding a color story in the scraps you love and just playing with the shapes and patterns.

 

 

Can you spot the Easter bunny??

Glitter papers, adding some white with a greeting here and there, you can even make this the surprise interior of a card with a fun window peeking through!

 

She even used the strips to decorate a hat pattern that she downloaded from the web. Wouldn’t these be a cute project for a little girl’s party!! What fun!

So we have to tell you that the hat above that Fran made is actually sized for her cat, Beaver. We challenged her to get a photo of him wearing it, after all she would have to tie it under his chin, and cats aren’t known for their love of hats… but SHE DID it! And she even got photos!! She’s not even bleeding! Good job, Beaver, such a good sport!!

 

 

You’ll still see a lot of projects using these great border dies in our April catalog as we go, our team just loves them so much! And Fran may just have more ideas as we go along, she’s always thinking of something special. Come back Wednesday for more recap from our January catalog projects!

We’re in love with our new Curios stamps and their whimsical, colorful presence in our office and our craft area! They not only make us smile with their fun shapes and colors, they inspire us with card and project ideas all day! By the end of the day we’re brimming with great ideas for using them when we get home. It’s been a very fun experience. These little pops of home decor with their premium quality stamps on the back are just delightful.
