{ippity} do da day

Maybe you noticed the small changes on my blog today. I'm going to start offering {ippity} stamps. Made by Unity Stamp Company, {ippity} stamps are not found in regular stores, they can only be purchased through {ippity} me... I haven't got my first order yet but as soon as I do you'll see lots of inspiration here on my blog. In the meantime you can check out the great designs by the {ippity} design team here.

Here's some of the stamp images. Check out my shop to purchase online or email me {maiclarkathotmaildotcom) for an invoice.









Enjoy the small things today! {Like super cute stamps} Life is too short not to.

And the winner is

Number 25 -Bobbi. My son picked a number between 1 - 65 and he picked 25 and that's you.
"Bobbi said... Congrats on getting to do a weekend crop. I would love to be able to do that one day. We are doing a family date with the kids this weekend. Have fun!"
Send me your address Bobbi and I'll send you your goodies. That was so much fun. I'm going to have to do that again soon.

Here are a few layouts I completed at the weekend crop.

Here is what came of the scraps.

I might use them on some cupcakes like these;

or brownies - since my son is a huge fan of brownies.
