Squeeze the Day – Thank you

Squeeze the Day
A Muse Studio Squeeze the Day was my favorite new stamp set when the 2013 catalog debuted. I still love it! I made a bunch of these handmade thank you cards to send to family and friends. I am thanking them for their support during a recent crisis in my life. I had a health scare. The tests ruled out MS and ALS, but indicate the trouble I am having is coming from my back. I still have some testing to go and will undoubtedly need physical therapy. Thank God the worst is over! Scary times are definitely sweetened with gratitude! I am so thankful for the prayers of the faithful and the love and support of friends and family. You know who you are – THANK YOU!

Easy Gift Tags to match Gift Wrap

A Muse Studio Birthday GreetingsHappy Birthday Gift Wrap
Hi Guys! Just popping in to share some quick easy Birthday Gift Tags. I made these to coordinate with the store bought wrapping paper I had on hand. I think the best touch is the black and white polka dot washi tape, from the A Muse Studio Tuxedo Collection, I used to wrap and attach the gift tag. I love when my stamping habit is so practical!

A Muse Studio Hello Die

A Muse Studio Hello Die
Here is another peek at brand new A Muse Studio Spring release products. I love the new Hello Die (TAD0079). It’s just $5.99, and available March 1st. My favorite part about this hello word die is how easy the cut ejects from the die. I was worried that the fine word cut would be ruined wrestling it out of the die – NOT SO! It’s a wonderful tool and no stamper should be without this versatile die. Also brand new from A Muse Studio is Everything’s Rosy 6×6 pattern paper. I can not wait to cut into more of the the 12 brand new patterns! I hope I have inspired you to make some handmade cards!

Pucker Up Valentine

Valentines Day Card
My 18 year old daughter loves this Valentines Day card. I guess the the black and white washi tape and bold pink label with inky edges has teen appeal. I am still not sure how I feel about the Valentine. I do however know that I love A Muse Studio Apple Ink with the hearts from A Muse Studio At First Sight. Both, Apple Ink and At First Sight are on sale now. Check out the SWEET SALE going on now at A Muse Studio.
