1. An Endless Summer Party with Guest Blogger Love Always, Audrey

    We’re in the final stretch of summer, and we wanted to give our friend, Love Always, Audrey a first look at our endless summer collection for her rooftop dinner party with friends. We were so excited to see how she used our products to create a stunning al fresco scene, and how she decorated her table with place cards, wine openers and more! She also constructed her very own donut wall…which is just about the coolest thing ever. Here’s Audrey!

  4. Run + Sun + Fun: My Chevron Accented Summer Party

    When I committed to running the Rock ‘N’ Roll Half Marathon earlier this Spring, I immediately started dreaming of the finish and — to keep my eye on the prize– I suggested we host a party to celebrate the finish and a sunny afternoon with our family and friends. My husband, while not at all eager to run 13.1 miles, had his own secret ambitions of smoking meat. Cookout time!

  9. New fave items for summer

    Ticket rollLots of great new items for summer are here and I wanted to tell you about a couple of my favorites! First, I love our giant roll of 1,000 Admit One Tickets. They’re super fun for all kinds of summer shenanigans from family talent shows to movie nights around the tv. Hey kids, it’ll be so fun!…when those adults pay you admission you can hand them a real, official “admit one” ticket! I think these would make really cute accents on a Valentine card, too. You know, like “admit one” to my heart sort of thing. Maybe that’s goofy, but I thought it sounded cute…good thing I have 9 months until Valentine’s Day to noodle on my idea.

  10. How-to: honeycomb summer party invitation



    This breezy summer party invitation is easy to make using fill-in printable invitations and our honeycomb rubber stamps. The honeycombs take on a citrus look in these ink colors, but you can change up the colors and use them again and again for any occasion– make fireworks in red and blue for a 4th of July celebration, or a garland in red and green for a holiday party. We finished these off with clear embossing powder for a shiny, textured look.
