New Stampendous Stamps

I always love unpacking a new box of stamps and, really, love unpacking Stampendous because they have so many different styles of stamps. This box contained our first of many, winter and fall stamps including new House Mouse! Love it! Here are some of the new arrivals.
This hummingbird stamp is a big hit this summer!

At the moment we have lots of these images in stock but they will likely sell out soon because many of our customers are looking for the perfect image for their Christmas cards.

Fun summer cards

I took a bit of time out from all my Christmas ordering to make some seasonally appropriate cards before I get caught up looking at all the great new winter stamps, dies and papers that I need to get ordered (3 orders down about 5 more to go!).
 I taught a Simple Stories Summer Vibes layout class this week and we made 1 bonus card plus the layouts and I had a bunch of scraps of paper, stickers and embellishments leftover so I made some more cards with the leftovers.
The card on the left is a shaker card and I used a bunch of leftover Bits and Pieces from my class plus a couple of stickers.
The card on the right was also done with Summer Vibes Bits and Pieces and papers. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn. I added some Sprinkled Sugar Stickles in places on this card for some extra interest which, of course, does not show in the photo.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend and summer.

Whew, busy week!

With all the summer fun going on lately I seem to have neglected the blog, sorry about that! Crafty Capers has been receiving loads of new stuff including the NEW Bird Crazy dies by Sizzix and the July Distress color, Blueprint Sketch. Currently, we have all the new product in the new color but it is likely to sell out as the monthly color often does so hurry in before it is all gone.

 These dies and stamps have been very popular! I love them so cute!

New Memory Box card sample

Here is the card I made up using the new Memory Box dies. Pretty happy with how it turned out and, bonus, it came together quickly! I cutt he evergreen trees out of velvet paper and the birch tree oval was cut with Core Kraft cardstock which I lightly sanded to give the trunks some interest.
I used the new dies: Evergreen trio and Woodland Oval. I also included a spring release die called Mama and baby bear. I think this is perfect for a man birthday card and the trees can be used for fall and Christmas cards as well! Thanks for stopping by!

New Memory Box

Just a quick note to let you know we received the new Holiday 2015 Memory Box dies yesterday. There are lots of beauties in this collection and, in fact, I have made a card with 2 of the new dies already! I will post that later. In the meantime here are some of the new arrivals:
