Jump on It July: Oh, What a Wonderful Life!

The hissing of the grill, the splashing of the pool, the laughter of the kids playing tag—it’s officially barbeque season, folks! And that means it’s time to sit back, relax, and enjoy some of the most wonderful moments of life.

And, lucky for you, the July Stamp of the Month was designed to celebrate these exact moments! You know, the kind of moments where you realize just how wonderful your life truly is. This stamp set, which is aptly named Life Is Wonderful, captures the optimism we all aspire to have toward life, the kind of optimism where you reflect on yesterday, appreciate today, and look forward to tomorrow.

For this month only, to help you celebrate life even more, you can get this stamp set for FREE with a qualifying purchase in current, retail priced stamps. How’s that for a silver lining?

July Stamp of the Month

Our favorite part of this stamp set is probably the shabby chic style of the lettering that evokes feelings of home and the “good ol’ days.” We absolutely love the chalkboard-like effect the stamps in this set create when they are used on black paper. How adorable do they look on this sweet couple’s scrapbook page?

Wonderful life

As an added bonus, this set is ultra compatible with all of your other stamp sets, making it ideal for creating just the right proverb to capture your family’s precious moments.

It’s difficult to decide what we love most about this stamp set, but we know you won’t regret jumping on this great July deal. Now grab that glass of lemonade, join your family in the backyard, and start making memories to last a lifetime! Oh, and one more thing: Always remember something wonderful is about to happen. 🙂

Illustrious Invitations: Inked to Impress

Spring always brings a rush of new joys! It seems that love, weddings, flowers, sunshine, and even babies come pouring into our hearts all at once during this season. It’s a beautiful and welcome renewal after a cold, dormant winter.

With so many beautiful things blossoming all around us, it only makes sense to celebrate. Whether that’s through a bridal shower, a baby shower, a birthday party, a wedding reception, or simply an afternoon of crafting, we believe that everyone has something to celebrate this time of year.

And what’s a celebration without an invitation? Why, a very lonely celebration of course. You know what they say: the invitation sets the tone for the party! So we mined the Seasonal Expressions 2 idea book for invitation stamp sets just right for ringing in spring. Marvel at the jewels we discovered!

C1612 My Acrylix® Shower Flowers

The flowers in this stamp set are to the Blossom paper packet as sunshine is to blue skies—they were made for each other! Use them in tandem to create an invitation that will have your guests rushing to your party so quickly they’ll blow the blossoms on the trees clean off!


B1478 My Acrylix® Ice-Cold Summer

The icy sparkles crystallized on these lemon slices look good enough to eat! We love the bright colors and shapes from this stamp set that make the invitation a party in itself. Can you imagine how happy you’d feel if this splash of life arrived in your mailbox?

If making your own invitations feels a little intimidating, just think of it as an alternative form of cardmaking! With one stamp set, you can create a collection of invitations that will make each of your guests feel special and appreciated—a little act of kindness that is well worth your creative efforts.

So open up the windows of your home (and heart) to spring! Let the fragrances, light, and even the occasional rain shower into your life. Breathe it all in. Even if your party is a long way off, today is always worth celebrating!
