It's getting to be that time of Year!
Happy Halloween Cards To Make
This is The Peddler's Pack newest Card Kit #16!   Little Miss Wilda Witch dancing on a fence with her friends and our ever popular masked  "Boo" kitty with friends ready to venture into the night for Trick or Treating!  These kits are available on our Etsy website:  Stamppeddler.etsy.com.

It's been a fun summer for us...have been socializing quite a bit with friends attending weddings and birthday parties.  A party at the Evergreen PDX featured roller skating!  I used to love to skate but at our age, we just watch now!

Our friend Joy took this picture of us at a wedding this summer in a fun photo booth.  Photo booths are becoming quite popular!

We haven't taken any trips this summer.  Just been enjoying our home and garden and I'm pretty much in my craft room everyday creating!

Buzzin' with New for You!


This is the new card kit featured for August...busy little bees!  The shaker card is so easy to assemble and doesn't require foam tape.  The kit comes with everything to make 4 cards, 2 of each design.  
It's been so much fun designing these monthly card kits.  It's a way to keep in touch with all of our Peddler's Pack customers.  
We've been enjoying our summer.  Weddings, birthday parties, boating on the Columbia  River with a very special friend, cooking, gardening, crafting and shopping!
We went to a really fun birthday party at the Evergreen in downtown Portland.  They set up a roller skating rink!  And no, as much as I would have liked to put on some skates, I didn't!   Must save my knees and hips!  They had a photo booth and everyone's pictures were placed in an album for us to sign for the birthday girl!  
Another photo booth was at a wedding...here's our picture: 

I entered 14 cards for the Oregon State Fair this year.  I…

Happy Summer!
With summer in full swing, it's time for outdoor adventures including trips to the beach!  So this month's card kit is beach themed and will work for summer greeting cards or change the sentiment for a birthday card or just "Thinking of You"    The kit includes 4 stamps, materials to make 4 cards, two of each style with directions and a color photo.  
You will need inks and adhesives to finish the cards, that's it!
This is the 2nd card included in the kit.  
Here's a little something I found on the internet about Handmade Cards:
HANDMADE CARDS:
Because no one displays an email on the mantel.
OR Shows off a tweet on the refrigerator.
OR Save a facebook post in a box of treasures!

Bernie and I are enjoying our summer, mostly being home!   We did go to my 57th Class Reunion this weekend and it was absolutely the best!  Saw people I was in 1st grade with!   What a trip!

Happy 4th of July!
July has always been my favorite month as we have so many family birthdays to celebrate and then too, the 4th is always fun with special celebrations as well.  This is a landmark year for me as I will turn 75 this July 5th.  That sounds so old but I feel so young, blessed, happy, healthy...what more could a girl ask for!
The above two cards is The Peddler's Pack Card Kit #13.  The kit includes 5 cling foam mounted rubber stamps.  Here's the inside of one of the cards with the other two stamps: This kit is available in our Etsy store. I've really have been enjoying having the time to make cards.  I love my flexible schedule with more time to have fun and spend more time with family members.  Selling on Etsy has been a great outlet for our stamp line to keep it alive as we have so many wonderful images and we never really had the time to create with all of them like we do now.  We had some great artists!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll check out my…

The Peddler's Pack Card Kit #12
With the Portland Rose Festival coming soon, I thought it would be appropriate to offer a Rose design in this kit which could work for so many occasions.  Also, we always need birthday cards, so included one this time.  The kit includes all the card stock to make 2 cards of each design. The birthday card will have a second color and the kits include the cling mounted rubber stamps.  All you'll need to complete the cards is your favorite coloring medium and adhesives. To order this kit please go to Stamppeddler.etsy.com.
Bernie and I are enjoying the Spring weather, gardening, having friends for dinner, cooking, baking, crafting of course and helping my sister Alice move closer to us so we can spend some fun times together.  
This is a special year for us....we will be celebrating our 30th anniversary  on June 3rd and I will turn 75 on July 5th!
My sister Nancy died in January and we had a beautiful celebration of life at a park.  It was good to see my nephews…
