The countdown teasers for September start today with six new stamp sets coming on the 1st of September.

We are unbelievably lucky to have the incredible Joy Taylor guest designing this month.  Joy is currently on the Design Team of My Favorite Things, a leading brand in the industry and we have been admiring her fabulous creations on instagram for quite a while now.  We are extremely excited to have her on board for our September and October releases!  Joy has made some amazing cards and we can't wait for you to see them.

"I am Joy and I live in Australia, in a small country town with my partner Darryl, we live in a small cottage.  I have loved to craft for as long as I can remember.  I have been on many design teams and have guested for many more, always honoured and humbled when asked.  I have met so many people around the world through this craft and many have become close friends, this craft is something that keeps my life sane and smiles everyday!"
