Let's Go to Happyville

We are shining the spotlight today on our Happyville collection of stamps.

Not familiar with them? The seven stamp sets in this collection are how we imagine a small little town called Happyville to be. There'd be buildings, clouds, people and the cutest little bike imaginable. The Happyville sets can be used on their own or combined to build countless scenes.

Here are a few of the sets from the collection.

Thanks for letting us share your page, Laura!

By the way, have you stamped on a scrapbook page lately? Well, here's some incentive to do so.

We are hosting a challenge in honor of National Scrapbook Day on Our challenge is to stamp on a scrapbook page. To get all the details and to play along, visit the challenge page on Be sure to upload your completed project on their Web site and link it on the challenge page. The winner of the challenge will get a prize out of the Technique Tuesday prize vault.

Hope you will join us!

PS. Looking for something other than stamps to use on your scrapbook pages? Well, check out our Story Cards. These journaling cards are sized to work well with pocket-style page projects, but they also work well on traditional scrapbook pages. They come in three different colors and four styles.

1 Stamp. 7 Way to Use It!

Ever look at a stamp and think, "Just what can I do with it?"

Well, the From The Heart by Ali Edwards stamp has us thinking about that very question.

We've put our thinking caps on and come up with seven (yes, seven!) big ways to use this cool journaling stamp! (By the way, are you a fan of pocket page-style scrapbooking? This stamp works perfectly for those types of pages!)

Let's get on with the ideas!

1. Stamp it on cardstock. For extra pop, add a gem or button to the middle of the heart.


2. Embellish the heart with a little glitter glue! Who doesn't love a little sparkle?

3. Stamp it on patterned paper.

4. Stamp a word (or two) inside the heart!

5. Stamp it on wood! Be sure to use a thin balsa wood so you can cut the heart out with scissors.


6. Stamp it on felt. Trim the heart out and then add a stitch mark to the middle.

7. Make a window! Use a craft knife to cut out the heart and then fill a Glassine bag with sequins. Place it so you can see it through the window.

And there you have it: One Stamp. Seven Ways!


Studio AE: May Reveal

May 1st means a new Studio AE stamp set from Ali Edwards and Technique Tuesday.

Here is your first official look at Heartfelt by Ali Edwards.

This stamp set consists of five clear stamps on a 4" x 6" storage sheet.

These clear stamps are perfect for journaling and scrapbooking by having space to add personal notes to your projects. The small stamps are also great for cards with each one being uniquely different.
