Flashback Friday 21.0!!!


Hello and a big Happy Friday!!!

Welcome back to Flashback Friday 21.0!

I'm so very excited to share with you our 

Super Sponsor:



Paper and Such is an online store that opened in May of 2011.  Shortly after opening, we decided to begin our own stamp line, and it's been nothing short of exciting.  Our stamps are clear photopolymer, and are made right here in the USA!  Our HOT SHOT line is a line of chicken stamps - if you haven't seen them, be sure to check them out.   We are constantly adding to our stamp line, and love to hear what our customers want.  We also love to see what you make with our stamps!

We are trying to carry a variety of stamps and supplies to suit everyones style, and we are constantly adding to our inventory with different manufacturers.

Up next is my oh-so-fabbie Flashback Friday 21.0 Guest Designer:

Jen W. !
& Jem


Hi there!  

My name is Jen and I live in beautiful Bermuda with my hubby Luis and my two goofy hounds Atticus and Jem.  I started dabbling in cardmaking in 2007 but didn't get really serious about it until I discovered the amazing crafting community in Blogland in late 2010.  Once I started my own blog and began entering challenges I was hooked and feel like I've learned and grown so much as a crafter since then.  I love that I've met so many amazing and inspiring women and have formed some wonderful friendships.  I include Amy in that list and am so excited to be a guest designer at Flashback Friday! 

Isn't that fantastic?!!!  
Rightbackatcha Jen!
