I Love You - Papercraft Star

It is a special month at Papercraft Star because we will be featuring TradeFish Designs stamps! Why so special you ask... because our very own Cecilia Stephens is the owner and creator! How cool is that!?

Cecilia established TradeFish Designs (aka “TFD”) in April 2011 in Raleigh, North Carolina. TFD was created because she felt there was a need for stamps sets that she could use in cards, scrapbook pages and other crafty projects for the boys and men in her life. TFD is devoted to creating stamps with masculine themes, imagery and sentiments. You can use the images and sentiments for feminine cards or projects too, but the focus in Cecilia's design work is really about the boys. She promises that there will be no flowers, butterflies and/or girly swirls in any TFD sets. All the designs are a product of her own quirky design style and sense of humor, as well as a reflection of the boys and men she has had the privilege to know and love. Cecilia hopes you enjoy TFD stamps and create wonderful projects for the people you care about.

I will be using the Happy Father's Day stamp set for my projects all month long! This set is absolutely adorable and so versatile!

For the challenge this week we are to create a wedding or anniversary themed project using this photo as your inspiration.

Embossed cards are just about my favorite. Years ago, when I saw them, I thought they were gorgeous, and I envied anyone who could make them !!! lol. Great card, using the ties as three, packs a punch. You did a great job on your post too !!
