Blog Hop with Arnold Grummer

Arnold Grummer Blog Hop Banner

Have you ever made paper? We’d love to hear about your experiences if you have! At Stampendous, we’ve been making handmade paper for decades, and we even used to distribute the wonderful Arnold Grummer’s Papermaking Kit to our retail stores. We reconnected with this great company at the Creativation show this year. They proposed a fun blog hop! We sent Stampendous products to their team, and they provided papermaking kits to ours.

For the next two weeks, we’ve got some great projects to share with you as the teams play with the wonderful products we’ve exchanged.

Today, check out this beautiful creation by Becky Conley. Click on her name, or the picture to learn more about how she made it!

Welcome WindowRama!

WindowRama Cutting Die Set

One of our newest creations in our January 2019 Catalog is our wonderful new WindowRama Die Set. This set of 5 dies creates charming little diorama cards that fold flat to mail in an envelope and stand up for display.

The set includes the outer, base die which forms the front and back of the card, plus windows that can be combined or used separately to cut out the front of the card for a huge variety of looks. You can also use the windows to make dynamic flat cards and shakers! Fran has recorded a wonderful video to explain the basics of this great die set.

You can see lots of samples using this set on our website by clicking the picture above, and our design team has been playing with the dies all week. Their great samples are listed below. Be sure to leave them some love. We’ll give away three WindowRama Die Sets to lucky commenters on their blogs and ours with U.S. Mailing Addresses! (hint: make sure we know you have a U.S. mailing address) Official contest rules are always HERE.
