It’s been a dream of mine to create paper for over a year. I have tested more paper samples and have had ups and downs over the last six months then I ever thought possible. Looking back, that’s how we learn and to also to find a product that meets my satisfaction and that is always so important as a stamper and crafter first before all else. So to be releasing our paper pads this week has been one of the most exciting and fulfilling events in my life besides starting IBS.
Last year around October, we sat down and decided to change our business plan around too. What is that crafters want and need to continue to create in this industry? We asked many of our customers personally and the feedback was amazing. I have the greatest friends in this industry.
Here are a few of our changes that you can see from Inspired by Stamping. This year we are kicking off with releasing our product right away, as you have seen this week. Our releases will be every other month in 2014. We are also asking the designers to participate on our blog here with inspirations Monday – Friday. We are having blog candy every Monday. And our 2 kits were introduced! Whoo Hoo! Starting in February, I will be starting video card classes using these kits with a new video released each week.
I look forward to continually growing and sharing with you during this year! Thank you for everything!
My card today features the Spring Lilacs Kit. All the beautiful items here are available with the kit except from the sentiment from Vintage Roses stamp set. You can purchase this separately or with our Vintage Floral kit. I used many layers from the Spring Lilacs paper pad and stitched around each layer of paper using White string. For my sentiment, I grabbed some deep purple string and stitched around it using this rich color as a focal point.
This lovely sentiment can be found in our Vintage Roses stamp set. I then cut out the bird from the Spring Lilacs stamp set and popped it up on dimensionals. For my final touches, I added some purple blossoms, crochet trim and 2 pearl brads from this kit too.
We will be back tomorrow with more inspiration! Thank you for joining us! A special thank you to Grace for sharing these gorgeous cards with us today! I hope we left you feeling inspired to get in the craft room and stamp with our new products!
