August Sneak Peeks Day #3


Like I said yesterday, it's been getting hot around here, which means I would love to get to go swimming this week. The Greenhouse Society stamp set and die this month are helping keep a cool frame of mind though, since it's the Lotus, a water flower.


We have been having a wonderful time around here at TTHQ, playing with the Lotus. It includes the flower stamp, which has a large flower, a couple of buds and one large round leaf, along with some sweet phrases for many occasions. These will make lovely cards, and are great for coloring with all kinds of different media.


If you're a member of the Greenhouse Society auto-ship program, these beautiful stamps and dies will be arriving in mid-August. 

If you aren't a member yet, you can pre-order the Lotus starting tomorrow morning. However, if you're someone who likes saving money (25% on the monthly product), getting access to exclusive, members-only sales, and free shipping on add-on orders, you should totally check out the details on the Greenhouse Society auto-ship program.


Check in again tomorrow morning for the full release! We're pretty excited about these new stamps and dies, and can't wait to share them all with you.

See you then!


August Sneak Peeks Day #2


The summer weather has truly arrived here in the Pacific Northwest, and the struggle between staying indoors with the AC to scrapbook and going outside to make more memories to put in the scrapbook is real! This month's Memory Keepers Studio is called The Story, and is going to be awesome for recording those great new memories (whether indoors or outdoors). The Story includes great sayings for story prompts, as well as journal lines to fit most standard formats. Those lines will be wonderful for making story cards, for adding some text to your travel notebook, or to make journal cards to add to your larger layouts.


Are you a member of the Memory Keepers' Studio auto-ship program? We'll be shipping this stamp set to your home-sweet-home in August.

Not a member? Not to fret, you can pre-order your set starting August 1st. You may also want to look into becoming a member of the Memory Keepers' Studio yourself. There are so many great benefits to membership, including a great discount on the monthly product, a members only sale page, and more.


The Fresh Cut Studios crafting die for this month is called the Small Numbers Crafting Dies. It's going to be a great complement to the journal lines from The Story. Adding numbers to captions and photos will make telling the story of your memories easier. Plus they'll be great for adding dates, and other numbers (Which birthday is this? How old was grandma turning here? Wait, you're how old??) to scrapbook pages or even cards.


We will ship the Build a Small Numbers Dies to all Fresh Cut Studio members in August. If you're not a member, don't worry, you can pre-order starting August 1st. Or check out all the benefits of becoming a member of the Fresh Cut Studio yourself.


Come on back tomorrow for the last day of the August Sneak Peeks, and then on the 1st, to see the whole awesome release and watch Bev's reveal video. You can also sign up for our Newsletter and get great exclusive content along with some pretty amazing sales that only newsletter subscribers get to see.


August Sneak Peek #1


It's the end of the month again! Gah! Time flies when you're having fun, as they say, and this month's Animal House animals are certainly doing both! Tommy and Polly the Tropical Birds are just waiting to wing their way to you. These beautiful birds will be great for all kinds of projects, especially those cheeky cards you send to your best friend on a whim.

Tommy and Polly the Tropical Birds Stamp Set includes Tommy the Toucan and Polly the Parrot, along with a few cute flowers and leaves, and some great punny phrases for that card I was talking about for your BFF (or whoever strikes your fancy). Stay tuned to the blog to see more Sneak Peeks over the next couple of days, and then the big August reveal on the 1st! Or sign up for the blog's RSS feed, and have it sent to your inbox or feed reader as soon as it's posted!August-2019-Sneak-Peeks-AH-2
