One thing I love is a single stamp! I am super happy that this fun stamp is being carried over into the new catalog. It is a “feel-good…instant smile stamp” The other thing that I like about the particular stamp is that you can use several different techniques when using it.

The stamp is appropriately called Kind Koloa  and he is just too darn cute. Today I am showing you the easiest way to used it…a simple color with the Aqua Painter. (I must apologize that I took the picture too soon as the water-coloring did not get time to dry and it looks a bit splotchy) but guess what – IT IS HANDMADE!


This would also be a great stamp to practice paper piecing…or you could heat emboss it as well. Sometimes I think that we get "stuck" on just stampin'…and forget about other options…I will use this stamp in another way like I mentioned to show you the possibilities.


It has been ages…AGES – since I have used Crumb Cake and please do not forget that the crump cake comes in the note card size, this is what I used today!

Today I also used the water color paper and the Aqua Painters! They are so much fun to play with and I suggest that you throw away all expectations that you have one yourself and just GO FOR IT! I am not 100% happy with my coloring but…what the heck – I did it and it made me smile!


I touched on this yesterday and I am going to do so again today! In the new catalog there is a SUPER DUPER new punch that is a must have….true we could do it the good old fashion way but having a punch that will cut a banner in 3 different widths – its a total WOOT-WOOT….a true time saver!

The one punch will allow you to make a banner in 1", 1 1/2" or 2" – in any length that you need for your projects – a quick press and PRESTO a perfect banner!


This little guy is just adorable and you could also "mask off" the sentiment and change it up -hmmm….maybe I should do this for you!

I did a bunch of driving this weekend but it was well worth it – a fun weekend but I must admit, when I drive I start to think of card layouts….so let's hope that my mind will talk to my hands and provide you with some great projects!

Thanks for popping in and let's all have a great week! Please pop back tomorrow to see the NEW offerings of the weekly deals!
