Robin and Apple Blossoms

If you know MI, you know that we love our apples and the Robin...our state bird.
Stamp Simply has all these in the new set called Michigan Facts.

But you know, it's a fact that Stamp Simply has the best embellishments, papers...
and ooh, do their stamps ink up and stamp like a DREAM! I have been enjoying my new sets.


Where you from?
Where you going?

Stamp Simply has you covered if you are a Michigander from birth or a transplant!
I have lived in a great lakes state for my entire life...I love lake life.

I collected a few maps along my cross US journey last summer. 
I got the MI map out of the van and stamped the image right on top of the map. 
Upon close inspection, you can see lots of MI cities and points of interest.

I'm definitely going to be using these cards for my kids when they go back to school in the Rockies.
Who knows..maybe by then Stamp Simply will have a few more state sets.
But please, do Ohio next!! haha



Who is ready for a parade?

I'm so ready for a parade! 
Keep checking back on the Stamp Simply blog

It's grad time.
Even though ceremonies and traditions have been put on hold or altered,
a celebratory card is always a great way to show you love and to give encouragement to the newly graduated!

For this colorful card, I used the owl from NEW LEAF by The Project Bin.
Wouldn't these wise old owls look good in school colors...either HS or College?

I bet they would!


Toot Your Horn!!

Do you decorate your porch?
I started this week...and it's red/white/blue ameriana themed!
Perfect for this month's new release from Stamp Simply!

American Patriot Card

Let Freedom Ring

Decorate your friend's mail...
with the patriotic stamps and dies...and oodles of other embellishments...


Square one!

This week at Splitcoaststampers...it's all about the square card!
Here I used Stamp Simply stamps and papers...oh and dies!


Let's hear it for the grads!

It's a funny year for graduates...
so here's a funny grad card for those with a sense of humor and a good out look on life!

These fun owls are from The Project Bin's New Leaf Set.

Another idea might be to use the graduate's school colors for this formation.

Knock 'em dead, grads!! You've got this!
