These little stamps will fit perfect onto an avery label 1x2 5/8 so the treat possibilities are endless..

Hi Lyndal here!  I created this shaped card using the Cover-Ups set with Alphabet Soup sentiment.
I just LOVE the versatility of these stamps - and can't get enough of those hexagons!

Admit One- I love the circus theme.. and so I wanted to make a set that represented how fun these little characters can be. This set fits perfectly with the Party Animal set. As you can see.. the little stand is perfect to place the little lion on etc.. :) 
Arielle created this adorable little card using the ticket from Admit one. I just love how she stamped the same image in so many different colors to really bring the fun to the party! 

Hi!  This is Jingle!  I created this super fun card using the Admit One set!  The little blast coming from the cannon is my favorite part!  YAY!



Party Animal.. Yes.. it's the companion set to our Admit One.. The little giraffe, and lion fit inside the cadge. Perfect for shaped cards, kids invitations, or just to have a blast making silly creations.. the possibilities are endless..

Lyndal here sneaking a peek at the FAB new Admit One set, seen here with Jibber Jabber and Chatterbox sentiment... isn't it a blast!!!


Hey all!  It's Kim here!  For my sneak peek, I used the Admit One set too.  It has so many fun stamps, it's hard not to use!!!  (I seem to have used the same colors too!!)  I paired the clown with an arrow put together with another new set called Cover-Ups.  The sentiment is pieced together with Priceless JoyChatterbox and Bite Size.


Hi, Danielle here with a sneak peek of Party Animal!  How cute is the lion in this set?!  With that adorable expression, I just had to put "party animal" for my sentiment!  ;-)


Hi Arielle here! I used this super cute clown from Admit One!  Clowns are so fun, and this guy juggling these bowling pins is the best! I love the row of little stars, too!

Barb  used the new Party Animal set to create this adorable scene showing lions in their den. To make the female all she did was, not use the mane.. don't you love how she combined sentiments from  Hey Cupcake   Tropic Topic    Alphabet Soup to make this card?


Hi, Tracy here,  I am super excited today as this is my first post as a design team member!  I used the cute lion and giraffe from the new Party Animal set and I combined sentiments from the get MOOvin' and Jibber Jabber sets :)


Jingle decided to use the new Cover-Ups set in an outside-the-box kind of way!  She stamped the woodgrain wrapper onto the card as a panel!  What a fun look!


Arielle here! I used Party Animal for this fun card! My hubby LOVES lions and he said he thought this was the cutest one he'd ever seen... I think I have to agree!

Can't Wait Wednesday...

Can't wait til the Sneak Peeks Behind The Alley Way starts tomorrow - highlighting the FAB new August sets AND lots of opportunities to WIN!

To get you in the mood here is some more inspiration from our Design Team...

Lyndal here!  As soon as I saw this gorgeous reindeer and "You light up my life" sentiment in the Fa-la-la set I knew I wanted to make a tea-light holder - where the candlelight flickers through Rudolph's nose.  Too easy with the fab new battery-operated tea lights on the market!


Hey, it's me, Arielle! I also used Fa-la-la for a quick card using a recycled brown bag! I decided it would be fun to stamp the deer like they were in a little chorus line - the deer~ettes!

Tuesday Treats...


Barb used Tropic TopicTalk To Me and a whole lot of scraps to make this cute scene! There is so much fun texture, pattern and color here!


Marcy used Alphabet Soup to add the number 50 to her friend's birthday card.  I love the bright colors and the rosette is super fun.


Jingle created this CAS Christmas card with a bit of whimsy using the wonderfully adorable ornaments from Fa-La-La!
