Baking Up Double the Fun

Gingerbread Baker Pair by Fran Seiford

Baking up yummy holiday treats is always fun with someone along to help and our Gingerbread Baker Clear Stamps and Die Set will make an assistant baker easy with the fun mix of dies.

Just think of the possibilities for your holiday paper crafting, gift giving, and scrapbook pages.

Fran’s adorable card shown above would be great for a couple who loves to cook or bake together and how about a delightful way to say thank you to the school’s cafeteria staff!

Gingerbread Baker Clear Stamps and Die Set

This charming set includes an apron, chef hat and bowl to create a variety of merry bakers, and one more die that really adds the finishing touch to the gingerbread die cut is the bow die. Take a look at this merry gingerbread pair with a hair bow and bow tie, what a sweet couple!

We made it to the beach with these House-Mouse characters and friends and now it is time for relaxation and recreation. It’s been an eventful week for these mice and if you missed our earlier posts, please stop by and check them out.

Monday these mice and friends started out in their own backyard with Wednesday summer treats soon to follow and Thursday is always a stenciling day.

Maxwell is in an odd position as his Sandpiper friend comes to inspect his condition! And then there are these mice hard at work creating a one of-a-kind sand castle with their Sandpiper friend distracted by grabbing a wiggly snack, or is it?

Riding the Wave of Summer Stencil Style!

For some, summer is catching an ocean wave or slides and pools at a waterpark, but one thing is for sure that the heat of summer is squelched when it involves water.
