I received some card candy for a swap using the Perfect Blend stamp set and used them to create this fun card. I popped the hexagons. coffee cup and artisan label on dimensionals.

Pop n' Cuts Surprise Birthday Cupcake Card

It is rare that I decorate a card more on the inside than on the outside, but the Pop n' Cuts die and inserts make it so much fun!  To create the table, I used the Dress Form Pop n' Cuts die and trimmed away the dress form leaving a bit of the waist of the dress form creating a tab to which I could adhere my cupcake.

Then, I carefully cut strips of the Baked Brown Sugar In Color paper to insert behind and under the table.  I trimmed a Tea Lace Paper Doily to be the table cover and added the cupcake to the table.  The funny thing is that I didn't think I would ever use the Dress Form die.

Envelope Punch Board

It's here!  The new Envelope Punch Board!  Check out this video to see it in action:

Use this creativity-boosting tool to create anything from itty bitty to long and skinny envelopes!

Envelope Punch Board

Available  beginning September 1, 2013.

  • It creates totally customizable envelopes in up to 66 different sizes (not to mention a million different color and pattern options depending on the paper you want to use). Even tried and true envelope sizes will only take you moments to create!
  • It's super easy to use;  It looks intimidating at first glance, but when you see that all you have to do is measure for the first punch and from there you just turn and score, you'll want your very own right away!
  • It's small and lightweight; this makes it easy for you to take it with you. It's light enough that you could use it while watching a soccer match, at a park, at a friend's for craft night-anywhere.
  • It even has a slick scoring tool as well as a punch that lets you create rounded corners on your envelopes.
  • It's easy to keep it all together; the stylus storage compartment and two punches are designed into the tool so you don't have a bunch of little pieces to keep track of (even the instructions are printed right on the tool so you won't lose them!).
  • The price is terrific-especially for a tool that does so much!
  • It will be in next year's annual catalog, so it's here to stay.

Watch as Shannon West revealed this product to demonstrators for the first time at convention 2013.
