Weekend Blend

I held my monthly Stamp Group last night and we had a great time creating with the Simple Stems stamp set.
You may already know and love the Secret Garden Framelits that are designed to coordinate with the Secret Garden stamp set. But did you know that the Simple Stems stamp set in the 2014 Occasions catalog also coordinates with the Secret Garden Framelits?  Yeah!  Two stamp sets with one set of sweet floral and leaf image framelits. Now you can enjoy the speed and convenience of die cutting with both stamp sets or just pick your favorite.
