Hello my crafty friends!

I am finally back from vacation! I had a great time away with family, swimming and relaxing in Greece. I did share a part of it through my YouTube channel. We also spent a week in Copenhagen, Denmark. A much needed break from the Greek heat wave.

Now I am finally back home. The weather is still warm in Greece and we can still go for swimming, After all schools open on the 11th of September so still plenty of time to spend with the kids by the beach!

This time of the year when I spend time with my family is a much needed one. I take time away from my craft room and I do that every year. I take nothing with me, not even a notebook and a pen. Nothing related to crafting. I find that it helps my mojo and when I get back I am full of ideas, and eager to craft!

As much as it’s sad when I come back from a family trip it’s always great to get my mail! New products, awesome stamps and dies and inspirational kits are in the house! I will share some un-boxing videos and I will start filming new projects.

I will slowly go back to my regular blogging schedule. So stay tuned for tomorrow!

SSS August Card kit

Today is the 14th of the month and the new SSS Card Kit  has been revealed. It’s super cute, great color combo and perfect for birthday cards.

It’s one of those kits that will sell out in no time. So check it out and if you like it grab it quickly. I will make a 1 kit-10 cards when I get it. But I do need to post my August 1 kit-10 cards first. So stay tuned for that too!

Here are the links to the kit and to some of the products separately in case you just want to grab those. The papers and stickers included in the kit are exclusive products made by companies for SSS. But they come from the doodlebug collection I link below. You will also find the shaker tags which are awesome!

  7. WB Vicky. I have been loving your art journal videos for ages and while you were away you tempted me into the Altenew Card Kit, you made it look so lovely and easy. I was writing to beg you to do a 1 kit 10 cards with it please, please, please. It was quite pricey to ship overseas and I would love the ideas and inspiration for using it all. Thank you for considering and I hope you don’t mind the request.

    1. Make sure to hop along the blog hop. There are so many ideas on how to use it! Everyone shared more than 1 card. They sum up to way more than 10 ideas!

  8. I can’t wait to see all your new videos. It was great joining you on your vacation. Such a beautiful place. ???

  9. Oh how nice that you were in Denmark! Please Vicky if you ever come to Oslo Norway I would love to meet with you! It will be nice to speak Greek with someone 🙂
    We are in Greece right now enjoying the summer and swimming!
