Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts CAS Blended

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend. Is anyone planning anything special for Father’s Day?

Today’s card is another one that we made on Sunday at our in-person team meeting. This card was designed by one of my team member Tara who lives in Missouri. I fell in love with this design the second I saw it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Bundle for my card today.

I started by putting 2 strips of Post-It Tape on a panel of Shimmery White cardstock leaving about 1 3/4″ opening between them. Starting with Pale Papaya Ink, using my Blending Brush, I added color to the top section of the panel. I then added Soft Succulent Ink using my Blending Brush in the center section. Last I used Orchid Oasis Ink on the bottom section with my Blending Brush.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Shimmer White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal. I cut the leaf die using my Splendid Stems Dies from a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock. I adhered the leaf die to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wrapped a piece of Evening Evergreen bakers’ twine, from the Fan Bakers Twine pack (retiring June 30), around the layered panel 3 times and tied a bow. I adhered the layered panel to an Evening Evergreen card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Shimmery White panel. I stamped the large leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Shimmery White panel to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the envelope front and flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked this card as much as I did. The products used will be available starting July 1 from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Wedding Fun Fold

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you were able to do something fun. Is everyone ready for a new week? I can’t believe we’re almost to the middle of June. I’m guessing if you have children, they will be finishing up school this week and starting their summer vacation. Sometimes I miss those days.

Today’s card was one that we made at our in-person team meeting yesterday. This one was designed by one of my team member Rosie, who lives in South Dakota. We have team members all over the United States, but thanks to Zoom, we can all get together. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Splendid Thoughts Bundle along with the Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper for my double Z fold card today.

I started by adhering the foil panels of Splendid Day DSP to the coordinating Soft Sea Foam mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panels to the Sahara Sand card base.

I stamped the sentiment from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the fabric pattern Splendid Day DSP. I adhered the stamped panel to a Splendid Day DSP mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the front of the small card base. I adhered 2 die cut leaves that I cut from scraps of Soft Sea Foam and Splendid Day DSP using my Splendid Stems Dies. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the small card base.

On another panel of the fabric Splendid Day DSP, I stamped the sentiment from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I adhered the stamped panel to a Splendid Day DSP mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the back panel of the small card base. I adhered 2 leaves that were cut from scraps of Soft Sea Foam and Splendid Day DSP using my Splendid Stems Dies.

On the center section of the small card base I adhered a panel of Splendid Day DSP. I adhered the small card base to the large card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue on half of the small card base front and the card base back.

On the back, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the foil die cut leaf image, that I cut using my Splendid Stems Dies and a scrap of Splendid Day DSP, to the side of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat and then to the back of the Sahara Sand card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the larger leaf image from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Splendid Day Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked the card we made. The products used for this card will be available July 1st from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Wedding

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends, welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have any fun plans this weekend? I’m working all day today, but tomorrow is our in person quarterly meeting. Alway look forward to our meetings.

Today’s card is another one we made at my Stamp Camp card class this past Tuesday. One of the ladies requested a wedding card, so here’s what I came up with.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Bundle along with the Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper and the Stampin’ Up! Celebrating You Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to a Smoky Slate card base. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Basic Borders Dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink on the top of the panel. I embossed the panel using the Elegant Eucalyptus 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large rose image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. I cut the image out using my Cottage Flowers Dies. I adhered the rose to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Using my Clear Wink of Stella, I brushed the entire rose to give it a shimmer. I adhered a Sprig Trinket just under the rose using Glue Dots.

On the inside, I stamped the rose image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrating You stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink over the rose image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large rose image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers CAS Thinking of You

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? Tonight, is my Stamp Camp Card Class. I look forward to this every month with getting together with the ladies. We have 2 new ladies joining us tonight and I’m looking forward to meeting them and learning their style of stamping.

Today’s CAS card is one that we will be making tonight. I’m trying to keep it fairly simple tonight since I have 6 ladies coming and don’t know what level they are all at. Everyone will be making this card, but they will color the flowers in whatever color they would like to. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large flower image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Daffodil Delight, Orchid Oasis, Soft Succulent and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top of the panel.

I embossed the panel using the Into The Clouds Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Orchid Oasis card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the smaller floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image using my Daffodil Delight, Orchid Oasis, Soft Succulent and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Orchid Oasis mat and then to the inside of the Orchid Oasis card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image using my Daffodil Delight, Orchid Oasis, Soft Succulent and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of 2022-2024 6 X 6 In-Color Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my CAS card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Simply Fabulous Hello

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? It was gorgeous here and of course I was inside both days working.

Today’s card is one that we’re going to make at my class on Tuesday night. I wanted to try something a little different but easy. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Simply Fabulous Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Lovely In Linen Designer Series Paper and the Stripes & Splatter 3D Embossing Folder for my card today.

This is my template for my DSP. I took a 6 X 6 panel of the Lovely In Linen DSP and marked 1″ from each corner. I lightly drew lines from my little pencil marks. I then cut the paper in 4 pieces using my Paper Trimmer. This will give you 4 panels to make 4 cards.

I adhered a panel of the Lovely In Linen DSP to a Very Vanilla card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I embossed the small panel of Sweet Sorbet cardstock using the Splatter embossing folder from the Stripes & Splatter 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue lining it up with the DSP

I stamped the sentiment from the Simply Fabulous stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the Very Vanilla card front panel above the DSP and embossed panel. I adhered the layered panel to an Evening Evergreen card base. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Simply Fabulous stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Simply Fabulous stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on either side of the panel stamped full strength and stamped off once. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Sweet Sorbet mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf image from the Simply Fabulous stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink full strength and stamped off on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Lovely In Linen DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Sending Charming Smiles

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I worked all day yesterday and was it ever busy. I’m working at the dog bakery today and it’s supposed to be another beautiful day, so I’m guessing it’ll be a busy one. Hopefully lots of pups will come is so we can give them treats.

I have a clean and simple card today. I’m trying to come up with designs for my card class this week. I have a couple new ladies coming and I’m not sure of their style. I’m trying to keep things a little on the simpler side. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Subtle DSP to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the stem images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink. I stamped the flower images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the double stem. I stamped the flower centers in So Saffron Ink.

I cut the panel out using the 2nd largest Stitched Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the top of the panel. On a scrap of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the small flower image from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I cut the flower out using my Sending dies. I adhered the cut flower to the smaller stem using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock on an angle using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the stem image from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the flower images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Petal Pink Ink and the flower centers in So Saffron Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stems from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the flower images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Orchid Oasis, stamped off once on scrap paper, and Petal Pink Ink on the stems. I stamped the flower centers in So Saffron Ink. I adhered a panel of Subtle DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Thank You

Good Monday morning my stamping friends and Happy Memorial Day. I hope you can enjoy your day with family and friends getting together for a picnic or some fun activities. Please take a moment to remember all those who have served for us.

Today I have a Clean and Simple card for you. This card is perfect for that beginner stamper. If you ever wanted to give stamping a try, this is a great card to start with, a little stamping, a little coloring and you’re done. I could have dressed it up, but I thought I would stick to the basics, Stamps, Ink and Paper. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Cling Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set.

I stamped the large flower image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White card front.

I colored the image in using my Daffodil Delight, Orchid Oasis, Parakeet Party, Sweet Sorbet and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top of the card front. I adhered the card front to a Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top of a Basic White panel. I stamped the silhouette floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small floral image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the images in using my Orchid Oasis, Parakeet Party, Sweet Sorbet and Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the 2022-2024 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my CAS card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Birthday

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? It’s been warm, humid and stormy here so far.

Today’s card is another version of yesterdays. I was playing around with colors for my rose, and I couldn’t decide which one I liked better, so I made 2 different cards that are similar in color. I personally think I like the Highland Heather a little better. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set, Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper and the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This was the inspiration for my colors yesterday and today. This is one of my gardens in the front of my house.

I started by adhering a panel of Flowering Fields DSP to a Highland Heather card base. I adhered a panel of Heart & Home DSP to the center of the card front.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large rose image from the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Highland Heather and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Cottage Flowers Dies. I adhered a piece of Soft Succulent 1/2″ Satin Shimmer Ribbon to the card front with a small amount of Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the rose over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Sending Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on either side of the panel. I colored the leaves in using my Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the rose image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Tuxedo Black on the envelope front. I colored the image using my Highland Heather and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Flowering Fields DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Let’s Set Sail Father’s Day

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend. It was beautiful here, especially yesterday. I believe it was 78 and sunny most of the day. Now we’re back to rain and 50. Is anyone else watching the clock like I am? Less than 24 hours till the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog goes live, YAY!!!! I can’t wait. I’ve got my list all ready to go starting with my must haves right away, then my I want it now’s, followed by I’ll get it next week if I can wait that long and finally I want them, but I can wait a bit. I will be hitting that expedite button so I have my new goodies in a day or 2 so that I can get all the DSP cut up and shipped out to you ASAP.

Today’s card is one that we will be making at my monthly class tomorrow night. I thought I’d start the night off, and today’s post, with all the new 2022-2024 In-Colors. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Let’s Set Sail Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Gentle Waves Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Happy & Heartfelt Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by embossing a panel of Basic White card front using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the water image from the Gentle Waves stamp set first in Tahitian Tide Ink. I moved the panel up a little and stamped it again in Starry Sky Ink. I adhered the stamped panel to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sailboat image from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I colored the masts in Parakeet Party using my 2022-2024 In- Colors Stampin’ Write Markers. I stamped the sails images from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Orchid Oasis and Sweet Sorbet Inks. Using my Sailboat Builder Punch, I cut all the images out. Before punching them, I cut them apart using my Paper Snips to make it a little easier to punch. I adhered the sailboats to the stamped panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the shadow image from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Starry Sky Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, below the boat image.

I adhered the Sweet Sorbet sails using Glue Dots and the Orchid Oasis sails using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the bird image from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the top of the panel. On a small panel of Basic Whtie cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Starry Sky Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stylish Shapes Dies. I wrapped a piece of Starry Sky Baker’s Twine from the 2022-2024 In-Color Baker’s Twine Pack around the panel twice tying a knot on the back. I adhered the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Parakeet Party 2022-2024 matte Decorative Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy & Heartfelt stamp set in Starry Sky Ink on a Basic Whtie panel. On the bottom of the panel, I stamped the water image from the Gentle Waves stamp set in Tahitian Tide Ink. I stamped the sailboat images from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Sahara Sand and Sweet Sorbet Inks on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the shadow image from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Starry Sky Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, below the boat. I stamped the birds’ image around the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the water image from the Gentle Waves stamp set on the envelope front in Tahitian Tide Ink. I stamped the sailboat image from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Orchid Oasis and Sahara Sand on the bottom of the envelope. I stamped the birds in Smoky Slated Ink. I adhered a panel of Sahara Sand Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Through It Together

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend already.

Today’s card is another one we made last night at our Stamp Camp. My card design is from a friend and team member Terry Lynn Bright. My main focus at this month’s class was using designer series paper. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set along with the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper and the Brilliant Wings Dies for my card today.

I started by adhering a Pattern Party DSP card front to a Basic White Thick card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Through It Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink down the center of the panel. I embossed the panel using the Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Granny Apple Green mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Brilliant Wings Dies, I cut the solid butterfly from a panel of Rainbow Glimmer Paper. I cut the detailed butterfly from a panel of Vellum Paper. I adhered the Vellum butterfly to the Rainbow Glimmer butterfly just on the body. I adhered the butterfly to the layered panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Black Classic Matte Dots to the body.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Through It Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Pattern Party DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of Pattern Party DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! New Shipping Fees Beginning April 1

I want to let you know about a change to Stampin’ Up!’s shipping and handling pricing.  Starting April 1, the minimum shipping charge will increase by $1.00, from $6.95 to $7.95—or by one percentage point, from 10% to 11% of the total order amount—whichever is greater.

If you ever use the expedited shipping options, those fees are going up a bit too.  Here are the new fees for expedited shipping:

  • Next Day Upgrade: $38.00 USD ($3.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • 2nd Day Upgrade: $23.00 USD ($3.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • 3 Day Shipping Upgrade: $15.00 USD ($5.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • The expedited shipping option rates above are calculated in addition to the standard shipping rate (e.g., the next day shipping option would cost $7.95 USD or 11%—whichever is greater—plus $38.00 USD)

I want to make sure you’re aware of this change, as it impacts both you and me.  Stampin’ Up! has worked to keep the increase as minimal as possible so they can continue bringing you the unique, high-quality, and coordinated paper crafting products that you love.
