Hi, My name is Jessica Esch, the wife of a VERY supportive husband and a stay at home mom of two wonderful and very active boys, Casey (11) and Parker(9) . Between football, basketball, soccer and baseball I found I needed a hobby for myself and found paper crafting! I began my paper crafting journey in 2010 and have grown not only as a card maker, but a stamper, scrapbooker and everything in between. You can always find me sharing projects on my blog~Chick-n-Scrap and hope I can inspire just someone along my crafty journey. I am so honored to have been asked to be a part of the TAWS DT and hope I can inspire you with their adorable stamps!

We are so excited for her to join our TAWS family!

And now for the peeks!!!

Friday Fun...

Happy Friday!!! Here's some inspiration to kick off your weekend!

Audrey here with a fun "outside of the box" card. I used the flower pot from Awesome Blossom to make a crayon! The scribble circle is also part of the set. The sentiment is from Ooh La La, and the stitched border is from Ghoul-Friend.



It's Kim.  I am still having so much fun with Ghoul-Friends.  I've used Frankie and the mummy, so today I wanted to try out the spider and the web!


Arielle here... I used the border stamp from Awesome Blossom, and the sentiment from Jibber Jabber for this quick card...
