From Pumpkin Spiced Lattes to the coveted Red Cups, Starbucks has officially become the sign of the times for the change in seasons! We love the decorative doodling that adorns this year’s red cups, and wanted to create our own DIY version. While we certainly love to doodle, we truly love a good punny saying and our red cups are filled with them. Read more

Sweetest Day is the perfect excuse to indulge in all things sweet! For us, that translated into papercrafting sweet treats over the weekend by way of adorable pie themed stationery to celebrate the occasion. We’ve mentioned a time or two before that we celebrate all holidays big or small, especially the foodie ones – so Sweetest Day was the perfect excuse to get in the studio and create a little something cute! Who doesn’t love a good flaky crust filled with sweet fruit and served á la mode with a scoop of old fashioned vanilla ice cream? To save ourselves from the serious calories associated with eating pie for breakfast, lunch, and dinner we opted for a cute, calorie-free version of stamped stationery.
Enter the Rag Doll: Tea Party Extras stamp set! We love all the images and sentiments that come in every Rag Doll stamp set. It makes them so versatile and easy to mix and match with other stamp sets. Here we chose the adorable mini pie images to create with for our sweet stationery set.
We certainly kept things simple with this fun pair of cards. We easily created a custom sentiment with a fun play on words that was a perfect fit for this project. We used a mix of the Alpha Thin dies and a stamped sentiment from the Party Elements: BBQ stamp set. While we choose “sweet as pie” you could very simply change around the sayings to make it work for a variety of foodie inspired occasions!
Be sure to share your love of papercrafted sweets and create your own Sweet as Pie inspired stationery. Shop this project [here] and be sure to share your creative works with us on Instagram by tagging #lovemyCSS.
Our most favorite part of Christmas, besides spending time with family and celebrating the true meaning of the holiday are the cards. It’s so much fun to give and receive holiday cards.

This year we are starting early and easing our way into prepping for the holidays. We have a super simple set of note cards that are perfect for creating in large quantities so that you can tackle your ever-growing Christmas card list early!

Inside the pages of the new Crafts Meets Classroom: Valentine Edition guidebook are a variety of favors, stationery ideas, and simple DIY projects perfect for gifting this Valentine’s day. We’re taking a closer look at the new Ruled Lined Paper stamp set used to create the adorable Teacher Favor Bag found on page 4.
We love a good background, but make it oversized and we are in stamping heaven! The large size covers a standard A2 card front. You can easily dress up envelopes and banners in no time. And for this project it created a notebook style muslin bag with one single impression. This stamp set certainly deserves an A+ in our book for being both functional and pretty darn fabulous!
