    I am loving your new format, with all of these post-release ideas. I now check out the Blog almost every day because something is always going on. And of course, the more products I see in use, old and new, the more I want! Oh, wait…that’s the idea, right? 🙂

    I’m so excited that BOTH stamp sets are on their way to my mailbox! I can already tell that these stamps will be perennial favorites! I love seeing all of the incredible inspiration from the design team continue beyond the release day. The white heat embossed images and blended ink backgrounds are so appealing to me. Can’t wait for my stamps, dies, and paper to arrive! ♡
