Gingerbread Baker!

It's that time of year again! Time for the Fall/Halloween/Christmas release from Stampendous! We've been busy for the last several months creating lots of samples with these great new stamps and are so happy to be able to finally share them with you!

This week Fran is in the UK sharing all kinds of great ideas on HOCHANDA (a TV station) featuring the new  catalog products. Well, we couldn't let that happen without sharing them here too!
I love making lots and lots of cookies during the Christmas season. It's really the only time of year that I do so much baking any more. While my family would like to hoard them, I like to share them with everyone, so the new Gingerbread Baker Clear Stamp and Die Set made me very happy! Here's a cute way to share cookies with teachers, friends, mailman, whoever!
