Happy Monday Everyone!

It may be a rainy Monday, but we will be thankful for any rain we get here in WNY. Today is a good day to get caught up on any class kits or projects that have not been finished. I will be working on making kits for my class this weekend and some new upcoming classes!

For this week's sample, I used a stamp company based in the UK called Santoro. I believe that Sharon has had this line of collectible rubber stamps in the store before and she has brought a couple back in. The stamps feature a variety of sweet little girls that can be colored either with Copics or colored pencils.

The card base was made from a new die set from Studio Light. I absolutely love this oval zig-zag card!! The die set has all the pieces to make the base and all of the layers for this card.

Supplies used:

--Studio Light Oval Zig Zag card SL-ES-CD211

--Santoro No. 67 Every Summer Has a Story stamp

--Memory Box Berry Red 6x6 paper pad (the watermelon paper was from an older Doodlebug collection)

--Copics: N0,2,3,5: E000,00,01,43,44,47; R35; RV11,13,14,Y00,06,15; YG06,07,09,11,13

I hope that everyone has a very crafty week!--Kim

Stamp Camp Friday! (but it's really Saturday)

 We’re all mixed up this week. Starting today, Saturday, Stamp Camp is in session. Therefore Sharon did her Saturday video on Friday. With me so far? 2:00 pm was the original scheduled time so I set my alarm so wouldn’t miss it. I missed it. Sharon started at 1:00 pm. Anyway, let’s get started. 

First up are finished cards from Wednesday. Then we have lots of new product starting with some cute summer paper from Doodlebug. 





How cute are this seagulls and crabs?!

Next up is more of Spellbinders release. These first ones are really intriguing hot foil plates.


Argyle embossing folder.

This is the sentiment die for all the card samples that follow. I love how they all have shadows. 

There are several of these coming up and you can see the sentiments from the die above.


I love mummys!



A Haunted House

Here is a great stamp set of sentiments for all your Halloween cards. The variety here will keep you in Halloween sentiments for quite a few years!

A few weeks back we did a video featuring this cute camper van with the mug on top. The mug came from the 'big' food die you can see behind the camper die. They are back in stock.

Poinsettia embossing folder

What would ANY release be without gnomes?

Lastly from Spellbinders, a cool background stamp. This would be great for a tone on tone background.

We also have a small preview of upcoming classes. Sharon's next Graphic 45 class preview.

A great colored pencil class

Charlene's next watercolor class. This photo does not do it justice.

Two Penny Black classes. This first one is the Penny Black Majestic Watercolors.

Penny Black Christmas Die Cards

The 49th and Market Viken book,


New and returning dies from Creative Expressions. Then new and restock of Catherine Pooler ink pads. 


These small Creative Expressions dies are great and at a great price point.




Catherine Pooler products are next. We have small and full sized ink pads and this great frame die. The little pots on the left are sparkles for shaker cards. 




Next up are some very colorful papers and some Grunge stamps from Studio Light and some very eclectic stamps.









Rice paper. Sharon is promising a video on using rice paper in the future.

We’re finishing up with Colorado Craft Company








That’s it for today. Everyone enjoy Stamp Camp. Maker Mania kits are going out this coming week and I’m sure Sharon will have more on Wednesday. 

Two funnies for today…



This is me at  midnight…
Have a cool, crafty good week everyone and Stay Safe!
