I Like Big Books

My children are now on their summer break and I am so happy :)  Like most young children, they are hard work and exhausting to keep entertained but they are also great company and they make me laugh and smile like no-one and nothing else!

Happy July 4th to all my friends in the US :)

We're attending the school sports day which is a day-long event where some families try to outdo each other with the best marquees and parading their personal chef's and butlers, forget the sport, this is where the real competitiveness kicks in! *eye roll*

Here are my cards...

Before you go off to enjoy your weekend, I'd be immensely grateful if you would pop by the Design Team blogs, I know it will be worth your precious time...


Must dash, I have a cheerleader outfit to squeeze into, not really!  My children aren't sporty and never come away with any medals, but they do have the loudest cheering parents haha!

Happy Saturday :)

July Release Countdown Teasers Day 1

The sun is shining, the children are on summer break soon and the July release is near so I'm happy, happy happy :)  There are seven new stamp sets, all with coordinating dies, on the way this month and here is a little taster...

Bear Hugs

Best Birthday

Mr & Mrs

Happy Travels

Magnolia Blooms

Miniature Floral Collection

Raise A Glass

Sadly, Caryn Davies is standing down from the Design Team and as much as I will sorely miss her, I'm thrilled and excited for her as she embarks upon much bigger and better things :)

I am wildly happy to report that the magnificent Lucy Abrams has agreed to join the team.  I am in complete and utter awe of this lady, who is not only ridiculously talented, but also such a lovely, lovely person.  Lucy will be a huge asset to the team and I am humbled to have her join us...have I mentioned how lovely she is?  She's truly lovely!

I am pleased as punch to have Jo Nevill and Cindy Lovell joining us in July, they are undoubtedly two of my absolute favourite ladies in blogland :)

Have a wonderful day!

Stephanie xoxo
