We have a new way for you to layer! Say hello to Paper Weaving part 2!

Colors include pink, yellow, purple, green, gray, and blue in 2 different patterns. Choose your favorite combination of colors and patterns and weave in and out for a unique look every time! You’re going to love these woven mats on both cards and scrapbook pages.

Two of our favorite sets of embossing folders are returning! Our Letterpress Embossing Folder Matrix includes our Letterpress Spring Folders and our His and Hers Letterpress Folders. What’s great about these folders are the small, repeating designs that can be inked, embossed, debossed and layered. It’s like you have your very own letterpress machine for imprinting inked designs on paper.

Letterpress Spring has six folders: hearts, butterflies, bunnies, shamrocks, flowers and heels. You’re going to love the small embossed patterns you will get with this set and all the occasions that you will have to use these!

His and Hers Letterpress folders feature six designs; flamingos, bow ties, knotted rings, top hats, anchors and pineapples. This set of folders is just the thing for birthday cards, Father’s Day, every day and more.

Our favorite diecutting and embossing machine, the Cuttlebug V3 is back for Craft Day. We use the Cuttlebug for all of our projects, and love the versatility you can achieve when you partner it with all of our amazing crafting products!

One of the best ways to ensure precise cutting is to use the Cuttlebug Magnetic Plates in order to keep all your dies right where you want them! This set of magnetic mats (1, 6″ x 13″ and 1, 6″ x 8″) are going to be sold together during our shows. In order to use these mats use the sandwich (from the bottom): A plate, magnetic mat, B plate, die face up, paper face down and top with a B plate. This ensures that you are not cutting into your mats, and keeps them in great working order.

It’s time for another giveaway! Do you have a favorite product so far? Tell us all about by commenting below to win. Meet us here on Friday for more beautiful in the making.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Dear all,

Thank you so much for all of the beautiful birthday wishes this week! I have been celebrating each day as I open the mail. There has been one surprise after another. The creativity of the cards and gifts has been a joy to experience! Just look at some of the fantastic cards that were sent from my crafty friends…

This one came first from Robert Hosler. Behold all of the beautiful glittery details!

Some of the cards came in boxes they were so dimensional. Elizabeth Durrant, you outdid yourself!

Speaking of boxes, Kay Mitchell made me a window box card – oh the thrill of opening!

JoAnn Sinclair made me her signature easel card. I love seeing our products in action like this!
