Sneak Peek Day 3

By June 7, 2012General

In June we always try to release something patriotic to honor the upcoming Independence Day celebrations in the United States.  This year we are focusing on all of the men & women who serve in the armed forces…

Melissa Bickford has designed a patriotic collection of stars that coordinate with the smallest die in the Seeing Stars die collection, just like the previously released Star Prints set.  With the variety of patterns and phrases included within these stars, you will have endless possibilities for patriotic projects and more.

Melissa Bickford has also designed a new sentiment set that is full of phrases perfect for all our military heros.  Sometimes it is difficult to find just the right types of things to say with these types of projects, but Melissa has phrased everything perfectly for you in this easy to use set.  She is also donating her proceeds from this set to the Wounded Warrior Project, making it even more special.

The new Think Big Favorites stamps being introduced this month feature a few more favorites from the original Star Prints set!

    I’m very excited to see this release with stamp sets I can use for cards and scrapbooking for my son, my hero, our soldier. Our son joined the army almost 4 years ago and my biggest fear came true when he was sent to Iraq for a year. Even though he has served his year in the war and I would have loved to have these stamps to correspond with him then, I still can’t wait to get my hands on them. I can send him and a few others we know in the military, all kinds of cards and other hand made items I can personalize to include in my boxes I send to him regularly. He is stationed over 1,200 miles from home and I get so lonesome to see our boys face. It’s my way to send a little love from home and let him know how much he is missed! These stamps will be ones I reach for over and over again. Thank you so much for putting this set together Melissa.
