Stamp It! 3 Ways

Make that 4!

Have you seen the newest PaperCrafts issue Stamp It! 3 Ways? It's packed with so many amazing cards focusing on how to really stretch those stamp sets. One stamp set + 3 designers = Amazing Inspiration.

Wplus9 was humbled to be among one of those asked to provide a stamp set, and they selected Hope Seed Co. I was thrilled to see what would grace the pages of this issue, and you all did not disappoint! I was blown away as always. Don't have a copy yet? No worries, head over to the Papercrafts Connection blog and leave a comment to win your very own copy. And, as an added bonus, we've supplied 3 sets of Hope Seed Co. to accompany this prize pack. Good Luck!

Valentine's Card Drive

Last year I had the pleasure of sponsoring a wonderful cause. When Winter Sims contacted me this year about her Valentine's card drive for various children's hospitals, I was more than delighted to sponsor her again.

What is it? Winter has collaborated with the St. Jude's, the Vanderbilt, and the Texas Children's Hospitals' to collect cards for the children who are staying at the hospitals.

What can you do? Send your handmade Valentine's Day cards to Winter and she will deliver them to the hospitals.

What do you get in return? Besides brightening a child's day, participating will enter you to win prizes from her wonderful sponsors.

You can find out all of the details and the hospital's guidelines here, on her blog.

Here's a little inspiration to get you started and in the loving spirit.

I used the Silhouette to create and cut the text, and paired it with our Love Notes Die for a bold and easy Valentine request.

I hope you'll consider sending a card or two. Each and every one will make a difference.
