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!

Truck Tidings Trees by Fran Seiford

We hope the wheels are rolling on the road to holiday paper crafting after this week with Truck Tidings! This set is a great combo of cling rubber stamps and dies that will enthuse the truck fans in your holiday circle, but it has so many more possibilities when you think outside of the holiday season and you will get to see some great ideas today from our designer’s projects today.

Before we take off for the weekend we’d like to share some of our other motored images also from our July 2016 catalog and a very popular truck and gifts image from an older release.

Trucking Through the Holidays

Truck Tidings by Fran Seiford

A very happy Monday to everyone and for our US peeps, have a great Labor Day holiday! Even though the U.S. postal service won’t be out for delivery today we are transporting our own holiday parcels because whether we want to believe it or not, it’s time to cruise through our July catalog of holiday goodies! We have a full line-up of themes that will take us right up until New Year’s to share and it’s time to get trucking through the holidays!

Our theme this week is all about getting those presents delivered on time and Truck Tidings really delivers tons of choices! This set includes images for a truck, presents and a decorated tree that are manufactured in our deeply etched rubber cling mount stamp each with a matching die, plus a perfectly suited sentiment to complete the set!
