NOTE: Due to an unexpected family emergency, I personally will be contributing a limited amount of projects to this month's countdown posts.  However, all of the talented ladies on the team have SO much amazing inspiration to share with you, there will never be a shortage of ideas.  Thank you so much for your understanding.




Add a little grace and beauty to your next project with the Graceful Greetings set.  The gorgeous font used in this collection will add a pretty, feminine touch to cards, tags, and more.  Turn the flourishes into delicate flower stems by embellishing them with the small leaves and flowers included in the set.  Or use the flowers alone to create pretty backgrounds.  Combine this set with metallic embossing powders or your favorite watercolor technique for simply gorgeous creations. 

The Details:

  • Graceful Greetings will be available for purchase on April 15th.

This collection of flower favorites is full of details and small touches that will bring beauty to anything they are stamped on!  Iris, lupine and black-eyed susans make up this garden of images.  There a few special friends added too, like a ladybug, honey bee and butterfly.  The multi-step features will make everything come to life!
