Say Happy Birthday with Tobi

Short on time and looking for a simple way to wish someone special a happy birthday?

Tobi Crawford has you covered. Check out this fun birthday card she made.

Talk about cool! Tobi cut circles from six different patterned papers and stitched them right onto her card with a sewing machine. (Not a fan of using a sewing machine? Consider stamping stitches with our new In Stitches stamp set instead.)

Tobi finished her card off with a sentiment from our Happy Birthday stamp set.

Well done, Tobi! Well done!

Eat Chocolate Stamp Set - Designed by Teri Anderson

This stamp set is part of the new collection designed by Teri Anderson. I've been enjoying playing with all of her new sets. They are so clean and simple with a nice touch of humor. You can see Teri's new stamp sets on our website in the "All Occasion" section. Plus check out this card by Linda Barber. I love what she did with this stamp set!

What's not to like about Chevrons?

A Card from Kris

It is a new week, and we are kicking it off with a sweet card from Kris Chirhart.

How cool is that flag?!

Kris used our I Pick You stamp set.

She stamped the words and apple on a strip of cardstock and then wrapped the strip around a toothpick. She cut a notch out of the end of the flag and then finished off the flag with a flower fussy cut from patterned paper and a little bit of twine.

Got a neat card or layout you've made with our products lately? Share it with us through our Facebook page. You can also submit it through for consideration in our Customer Gallery.


Memory Keeping with Ashley



Ashley here today with a layout I made about my daughter.

I made this layout because I want to capture more of the everyday precious moments. My children are growing older and I am rapidly losing this precious time with them. These “feet” moments are going to be gone soon and I know I am so glad I captured this one while I could.

I used stamps from a couple Technique Tuesday sets on my layout: Ordinary Days by Ali Edwards, Fabulous by Ali Edwards and Loving Words by Ali Edwards.

We are delighted this month to have Shemaine Smith joining us as August's Studio AE guest.


Shemaine Smith is a talented paper crafter and scrapbooker.

"Hello from sunny Southern California. My name is Shemaine, and I am a work at home mom to two wonderful kids. I'm lucky to be married to a great guy who gets my wicked obsession for creating with paper and doesn't mind me leaving a trail of scraps all over our home.
A few things you might not know about me, I love Good & Plenty candy, walks along the strand in Manhattan Beach on Sundays with my family and I’m a crime show junkie to boot!  If my dreams of paper and glue forever were to fade, I can always become a profiler with all the knowledge I have gained from my obsessive watching. Music is a must in my life, nothing inspires me more. I've been so blessed this year with exciting opportunities and friendships, life is good."

Check out her blog today to see a card she made with this month's set (as well as a couple other cards she made with Technique Tuesday stamps)!


We're excited to have Shemaine joining us this month. You'll get to see more of her work on Aug. 10th during our Studio AE Blog Hop!

Hooray for August and Studio AE!
