Hello, all! Thanks for joining me this week for a beautiful new card kit: Nature’s Walk Artful Card Kit. This kit has a lovely nature theme with lots of leaves, flowers, and woodland creatures. There’s also a matching Nature’s Walk Ribbon Set with 6 matching ribbons. I used the Small Flourish Stamp to create a unique border around the card, and the Pistachio Burlap Blossoms are the perfect finishing touch. I hope you enjoy this week’s card, thanks for watching!
This week I’m showcasing the ever-versatile Design Tool Kit #7! I just love the whole line of Design Tool Kits from Hot Off The Press because you can pretty much use them on any project. This kit comes with 7 plastic template pieces linked together by a removable chain. However, almost all the pieces have additional shapes inside them, so there are plenty more shapes than pieces. The layering looks that you can make with these Design Tool Kits are endless! I’m also showing a pretty sheet of Susan’s Flowers Dazzles, as well as the Simply Susan Paper Pack and Simply Susan Ribbon Set. This collection is definitely one of my faves, and named after a longtime project designer at Hot Off The Press, Susan. I hope you enjoy this unique, classy, shaped card!
Hi, everyone! Today’s card features 2 very special products: the 12 Flower Frenzy Cutting Dies, and the Flower Frenzy Stamp Set (33 stamps!). I had the pleasure of working with the cutting dies when I did “Ann’s Fall Look” Week of Webisodes (see October 6, 2014 Webisode), but this is the first time I’ve used the matching stamps. I have to say, the stamps are gorgeous on their own (and same with the dies!), but they are even better when combined with the matching die-cut shapes. I love that there are several greetings included–I use greetings stamps ALL the time, so I can’t get enough of them! I can’t wait to show you what I’ve made, so enjoy!
I’ll try to include a linked supplies list more often so you can see exactly what’s been used on the project if it’s not in that week’s bundle. (Let me know if this is either helpful or not necessary in your comments!)
Also, I know some of you prefer written instructions for my cards. I’m unfortunately unable to provide this service due to time constraints (it’s not cost effective for me). Sorry about that, but if you’re looking for written instructions, PaperWishes.com has literally thousands of ideas–see the blue bar along the bottom of the page that says “FIND YOUR INSPIRATION.” That bar has a bunch of links that will take you where you want to go. (Also, don’t forget that all Weekly Webisode projects are available in written form too)!
Oh, and did you know Paper Wishes/Hot Off The Press also has a Customer Gallery where you all can upload your own projects made with HOTP and other Paper Wishes products?? I sure didn’t until now! Check it out! Post your awesome projects! Post comments on projects you like!

There might be a bit of a delay on your comments, but we’ll make sure to find them! I love reading your comments, questions, and ideas, thank you all for participating, and thanks for your patience when the blog post has a glitch or comes up later than usual. (And thanks for notifying me of those glitches). We are all human (well, except for computers, so you can blame them)! 😉
