SE2 Collections - Sample Artwork

 Here’s some sample artwork for each new paper collection!!

LITTLE DREAMER features Unicorns, glittery die cuts and adhesive gems, hearts, polka dots and fresh springy colors.

♥ NO WORRIES is the collection that is giving me the ‘calgon take me away’ feels.  Laid back, beachy, casual bliss.  I’ll take some of that every day!

♥ PRICKLY PEAR is festive with warm. bright colors from the southwest banners, cactuses, llamas, and margaritas.  Mmmmm …Margaritas.

You know JACK — rugged, cozy, loveable…. and just a little wild.  Just in time for camping season — yippee!

1705-sotm and there’s a brand new Stamp Set of the Month.

It’s called LIVE LOVE LAUGH and the bold words are paired (in the stamp set) with some flowers and a cursive stretched out “together” sentiment for endless combinations of using the bold words together or separately.  It’s an amazing value for this 9-piece stamp set.    As always, get the set this month for $17.95… or better yet, it’s yours for $5 with a $50 order.
