Send a Smile 4 Kids is a volunteer organization made up of folks at children’s hospitals who collect handmade cards and distribute them to the children. Every kid stuck in a hospital bed could use a smile, right?

The current challenge is Valentines/Love Cards 4 Kids. You can find out more here to enter the challenge and donate cards as well as upcoming themes on their blog sidebar.

For inspiration for the Valentine theme, stop by our website and look through our project gallery for children style ideas with our stamps and stencils, then create a card or send in some you already have made.

Our design team will be sharing cards they make for the challenge in the days to come, and we’ll be back with an update with their creations!

This super popular product was one of the great innovations we released at #CHA2016! We love how we can use the simple pop-up construction in the center to make a pop up card out of just about anything! But the other Pop’cessories dies are just as exciting. Make boxes, placecards, stand up creations, and bobble/wobble projects with these innovative cutting dies. Check out Fran demonstrating this wonderful new product that has been one of the biggest hits of 2016.

We couldn’t leave out Santa sneaking a few presents under the tree!

With dreams of sugary treats soon dancing in our heads and the wonder of being on the nice list or not, we have the perfect stamps to share that we are thinking about it during this season!

Each stamp is designed to create a fabulous background for cards, Christmas scrapbook pages and more, but they are also terrific in sections! Jamie Martin used the candy cane border design in the Peppermints Plenty stamp to add whimsy to her House-Mouse card.

Use either stamp in a repeating pattern like the background papers on Laura Drahozal and Louise Healy’s card above and create a fun greeting using just a section of the stamp as well! These designs are a great match to any of our Christmas theme stamps and stencils!

New Pink Your Life Stamps with Stencils

stm_pylfallhop_banner

We have a whimsical pair up today with the Pink Your Life Blog Hop and our stencil centric Thursday theme.

Though any of our metal stencils will add a touch of whimsy to a stamped project, our design team’s go-to stencil is the Picasso Shield/Stencil Tool for creating soft clouds and details, so we were delighted to see a fresh idea with Nicoletta Zanella’s videos using the Picasso to add a few rolling hills and extra details to these two stamped projects.

You’ll be skipping along our hop today finding Whisper Friend inspiration at every stop and each designers project will also have a touch of fancifulness using stencils that we can’t wait for you to spot.
