July 2, 2010

Happy July! Are you ready for a great long weekend to celebrate our freedom and great country?

Check out this invitation below. Think about all the time and effort that went into this July 4th invite that dates 1825. They all needed to be hand-written and I am sure much thought went into the layout, words, and paper selection, too. Today we may make cards and invitations that are not as formal but they are done with the same amount of thought and energy as this one pictured below.

Indepenence Day Invite

Disneyland FireworksWith a last name like Sparks, our family has big July 4th plans with lots of family and a little bit of Disneyland in there. My husband, MacSparky, actually popped the question at Disneyland's Club 33 eighten years ago tomorrow, July 3rd. We call it "Sparks day" and we actually take our kids to a fancy dinner at Disneyland to celebrate and remember our special day. Fireworks after dinner - Disneyland style and it's all good!

I do want to welcome a new stamp company into the eP product mix. Excited to introduce you to Lawn Fawn stamps. We are getting ready for the big Summer CHA trade show so we're also having a big sale on lots of items to make room for new. Read on for more details

Wishing you a safe and memorable July 4th! Hope your long weekend is filled with lots of friends, family and all kinds of fireworks! God Bless America!
"Feed Your Creativity"

 Lawn Fawn stamps
New stamps, new company

Part of the adventure with eclectic Paperie is being able to bring new and exciting to you. Excited to introduce a fairly new company named, Lawn Fawn:

"Lawn Fawn is a crafting supply company that specializes in high-quality photopolymer clear stamps. Our stamps are cute, fun, and sometimes a little quirky! At Lawn Fawn, our goal is to inspire smiles and creativity in you!"

We have six Lawn Fawn stamp sets in the eP product mix. The whimsical design will "feed your creativity". The stamps have some great outline designs that are calling to your Copic Markers or have some paper piecing fun.
