hello from Seattle!


I have a confession to make.

I guess some of you already figured it out but in case you didn't know, I'm a hoarder. I'd really love to live a minimalist lifestyle (and goodness knows I've been trying to Kon-Mari my life), but my habit of collecting crafty things just isn't going to give my house a minimalist look any time soon.


One of my favorite things to collect are rubber stamps and dies of Seattle. I *heart* this city and I super *heart* Impress Rubber Stamps, the local stamp store. I buy almost all of my Seattle-themed stamps and dies from there.


As much as I love making cards using a more common, and non-location specific theme, I personally feel that there is something special about using a stamp set from the city where I live. Just think about it--anyone can make a "Hello!" card, but it is definitely a lot more personal when the card says hi from your city, know what I mean? Anyway, even though today's card is made with Seattle in mind, I hope you can use the idea for your city. If you don't have a local stamp store that sells stamps and dies of your city, try looking online or using your cutting machine. You may also like to check out the LD website. They have several sets of State-specific cut and graphic files and you may be able to find an SVG that relates to your city.

Have a great week!
