Pretty Mail

Hello and welcome to my blog! Hope your Monday is off to a good start. I'm always amazed at how quickly the weekend is over! 

Turns out I had time to stay warm and cozy and do some stamping with fabulous new products from The Greetery! When I open my order it almost feels like Christmas again. As you will see, I love all the mail themed things from the Love Letters release and much of it came in my package. 

The Pretty Postmarks stamps and dies contain multiple images for postal stamp elements and has tons of possibilities. Although this collection will make delightfully romantic projects, I wanted to try out a different style that could be gender neutral. By combining soft blues and tan I think I achieved a classic look. 

I added spatters in blue to the plaid-stamped panel, a cancelled mail die with black text and a wooden heart and twine as embellishments.

You will be seeing more with these goodies very soon. I can't wait to give them another spin. Thanks so much for your frequent visits, encouraging words and kind comments. I hope you know how very much you are appreciated.
