Dreamin’ Bella Bleu

Inside is a stationery holder, complete with a calendar, envelopes, matching pen, sticky notes and a place to keep your stamps.   It's portable and makes a terrific gift.

Flowers for Mama

Demonstrator Lorraine Day has been having a good time with her Big Shot…and with the Eyelet punch. We've all got Big Shot fever, so if you haven't yet been "infected," well why the heck not? LOL! Order a Big Shot from me before May 31st and attend one of my Big Shot ABCs classes – […]
