Coming Soon!


I am SO excited to be a part of another Stampin’ Addicts blog tour! These are so much fun, with projects from extremely talented demonstrator friends of mine. You remember the awesome Parade of Papers tour last month–this new ‘farewell’ tour will feature all retiring sets from the Spring/Summer 2009 Idea Book & Catalog. I’ll be kicking off the tour as stop #1 and featuring a super cute stamp set! (Should I tell you which one? Nah…)

The tour will run from noon on Saturday, June 13th to midnight on Tuesday, June 16th. After that, the ship will depart, so be sure to bookmark your favorite sites to return to later for instructions and patterns for the projects. Unlike other blog hops, ours are FREE to view and participate in, and highly professionally organized, with no dropped links and 100% participation. You will not be disappointed! Stay tuned for updates–just look for the logo!
