Hello everyone! In this week's Watch it Wednesday, our newest inspiration team member Patricia shares how to make a shaker card using planner stamps! Patricia's card was inspired by our May Challenge! wfc-201605-photo DesignTeamHeadshots_PATRICIAHello everyone, Patricia here! The colors, the flowers, the umbrellas, and the bright feeling from the photo inspiration, inspired me to made a shaker card using the planner stamps for the weather as the little shaker windows, welcoming the pretty Spring flowers after all of the cloudy and rainy days.  A great way to cheer someone up.  I used the soft blue and pretty aqua/green colors from the photo for my card base.  Then made the white base for the shakers smaller to leave a big border, similar to the feeling I get from the photo inspiration with lots of color and white to balance it.  And, of course, I had to include a little umbrella, all closed up and saying goodbye to the rain and hello to the flowers.  I colored the little fussy cut flowers from the Fay Stamp Set with Copics and Chameleon markers in colors from the photo inspiration.

Five for Friday - Fill in the Shape - Peace to the World Card

on December 19, 2014
Hello everyone! For today's Five for Friday, we have some fun Shape Filling Designs to share!

1. Vase

With the help of a shape die, we can easily achieve this look by backing the openings with some patterned paper. Our Feather More Die would be perfect for this! [caption id="attachment_14257" align="aligncenter" width="600"]Vase Source[/caption]

2. Apple

Fill in a simple shape with a simple pattern. Try the half circle stamp in our Flower Circles Stamp Set for this look! [caption id="attachment_14258" align="aligncenter" width="400"]apple Source[/caption]

3. Lemon

Fill in the lemon with words + fill in the space around the lemon with leaves = awesomeness! Try the circle shape, words and leaves from our Holiday Labels - Give Thanks Stamp Set! [caption id="attachment_14259" align="aligncenter" width="600"]lemon-pass Source[/caption]

4. Bone

How about a big tool box shape filled with tools? I'm thinking Hey Mr. Stamp Set. [caption id="attachment_14260" align="aligncenter" width="570"]bone Source[/caption]

5. Tree

This triangle shape filled with christmas elements from our Holiday Labels - Merry Stamp Set and Planner Add-on: Weather 1 is just amazing! tree

And here is my take! I was totally inspired by May's card but went with a more traditional color combo.

on October 03, 2014
Hello everyone! Welcome to Day 3 of Waffle Flower Crafts October Release! We are switching to a quarterly release schedule so we are having a few more products introduced on each day until all products go live in our store on October 5. We have 10 stamp sets and 5 die sets in our Fall collection. If you follow our releases, you probably have noticed that Day 3 is always the day for our experimental sets. Day 3's sets are not for everyone but we hope there are something fresh, new and innovative in them for those who do like them. Take today's sets for example, they are made for planner lovers. Use it to customize your planner or to create one of your own! (How many of you are relieved now? No more enabling today LOL)

Planner - Stay Focused Stamp Set

MSRP $15.99 There is a huge planner nerd community out there. Time management is a grand topic. So I just focused on one function * I * need for this set. I use my phone and computer calendar for reminders but when it comes to planning, I go with paper. I've been using paper planners on and off for years and have switched back and forth among layouts and styles.  I've found that when my life/career changes, my need for a planner changes too. There are free planner printables online but they are expensive to print, take forever to cut and most importantly, they are still not customized to my needs. So I turned to my beloved stamps. I wanted to have stamps that can help me customize my planner to suit my needs at different times. And I hope that it will do the same for you! 271017 Planner - Stay Focused
