wishing you some happy.

wishing you some happy

I'm so thrilled to be showing off Clear and Simple Stamps' new line of canvas bags, and it's the first time the new bow die is making an appearance on my blog.  I love it so.

And, in a bright yellow, it is especially fun and cheerful.  no?  Do you know the trick to crafting a perfect paper bow?  The kind with no creases in it?  Take a dowel or a perfectly round pencil and work the paper in the direction you want it to bend.  Slowly.  You need to break down the paper fibers and make it more pliable.  Works like a charm.

I apparently can't stop using those large stripe images.  I stamped myself a large sheet of stripes in two different blues, and then cut extra tag ends out of each color.  That's what happens when you can't decide which hue to go with for your project.  The sentiment is my new fave.  I love the font.

I hope you like my sunshine-y tags, and be sure to click over and see what the other designers have created for you:  Kim Lori CSS blog
