The birthday party continues today with confetti, this month’s Bitty Big collections, and a baking themed set that’s sweet as can be! Check out all the details!

Life is what you bake it! So, make it sweet with this adorable baking themed stamp set. The old-fashioned mixer comes in two different forms — solid, multi-step images, or an outline to color with your favorite medium. The mixing bowls can be stacked and embellished with the floral accent. The fun sentiments add just the right finishing touch for several different occasions.

Available for purchase January 15th. CLICK HERE for further product details.


The latest installment of the Mix & Mat series features an outer frame with a playful scalloped edge, a streamer-style middle frame, and a sprinkled confetti inlay. Use the three elements together or separately for a variety of styles. This die has everything you need to create a party on your projects!

We are excited to introduce you to the new Bitty Big line of basic patterned papers. We heard our customers loud and clear and you love to have the basics on hand, but you don’t want to spend a lot of money to invest in all the colors. These collections will be offered in single color packages, with a few new colors being introduced each month. Each package will contain 3 patterns, stripes, dotes and gingham. The three patterns are printed double sided, with one side featuring a small version of the pattern and the other side featuring large scale. So you get two options for your designs with less sheets to invest in!

  • Each collection includes 24 sheets (8 sheets of each double-sided pattern).
  • Each sheet features the bitty version of the pattern on one side, and the reverse features the big version.
  • Printed on smooth 8-1/2″ x 11″ text weight paper.
  • The collections will be available in Raspberry Fizz, Amethyst Allure, and Green Parakeet on January 15th.

Now that we’ve made all of the formal introductions, let’s get onto the projects!



Melissa Phillips is featuring Life is What You Bake It

Melissa has a way with pastels, don’t you agree? Her dreamy pink mixer and candy-colored bowls are nothing short of adorable. And adding in bright pops of pink and red add just enough contrast to keep things interesting.

  • INK: Sweet Blush, Pale Peony, Aqua Mist, Spring Rain, Mint Julep, Berry Sorbet, Pure Poppy, and Soft Stone
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, Berry Sorbet, and Bitty Big: Aqua Mist
  • DIES: Mix & Mat: Confetti, Life is What You Bake It
I love the way Melissa created a border out of the small floral and sprinkle images on this card. And her use of gingham paper and baker’s twine gives her creation a warm, homespun feel.

  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, Chicken Scratch Gingham

Melissa’s tag is brimming with love! She paired the clever stacking bowls with a complementary sentiment that she already had on hand. Combining old with new is a great way to get more use out of everything in your collection!

Stephanie Gold is featuring Mix & Mat: Confetti + Confetti Sentiments

Think outside the standard A2 box like Stephanie did with this petite gatefold. The Mix & Mat: Confetti die cut made the perfect mini card base! 
  • STAMPS: Confetti Sentiments
  • INK: True Black
  • PAPER: Bitty Big: Green Parakeet, Vellum Basics, Green Parakeet, Amethyst Allure
  • DIES: Mix & Mat: Confetti, You Have My Heart Envelope Die, Shakers & Sprinkles Heart Dies
  • OTHER: Gold Metallic Gift Stuffing


Metallic embossing adds a touch of elegance to Stephanie’s bold birthday card. By adding the streamers in a radiating pattern around the confetti sentiment she really made the greeting the center of attention.
  • STAMPS: Confetti Sentiments
  • INK: Versamark
  • PAPER: True Black, Smokey Shadow
  • DIES: Mix & Mat: Confetti
  • OTHER: Gold Embossing Powder, Grapefruit Embossing Powder


By using the center window of the Mix & Mat: Confetti as a stencil, Stephanie was able to add loads of texture to her focal point. The shiny confetti stars are a fun way to add a touch of shine to her creation!
