ThingsCrafted Grand Opening Blog Hop!

Hi all!
Totally geeked out to blog hopping today with some of my favorite friends in honor of the opening of ThingsCrafted.
You should be arriving here from my buddy Kathy Racoosin’s blog. If you’re just joining us on the blog hop, you can head over here to the ThingsCrafted blog to start from the beginning!
A little background on ThingsCrafted: ThingsCrafted is a place where handmade design and customization come together to create a wonderful company who creates and encourages color, personality and community. ThingsCrafted was founded by Britta Swiderski, a designer with a background in the world of papercrafting and a history of working with awesome graphic design clients. ThingsCrafted provides custom products – starting with stamps – to suit your lifestyle all starting with handwritten designs. They all go from pencil to computer to your doorstep! We love to create stamps and designs for addresses, “made by”s for the projects you send to others, favorite phrases or shapes for project life and planner organization and so much more.
So I was lucky to get try out ThingsCrafted’s customized stamp. I decided to have a somewhat sassy stamp (medium rectangle sized) I could use on my pocket pages.
So here’s the stamp and a few journaling cards I made with it that I’ll eventually slide into the those pages.
Totally dig that mixture of different elements. Britta did such a good job bringing things together. This stamp is just plain fun and it’s a great size for my pocket pages!
 The other thing is I don’t feel like this is a “one stamping and done” stamp. I feel like it’s versatile enough that I’m going to be able to use it over and over. For a different look, I can change out how I color and/or highlight the words.
ThingsCrafted also offers some pre-designed stamps for those that want to try something new and handmade but don’t have a particular need for a custom stamp.
I used a couple of them to put this card together: Solid Banner and Happy.
While I used these on a card this time, I’ll use them on a scrapbook page in the future!
So thank you so very much for stopping by today. Before you go – make sure to leave a comment on this post and each one along the hop to enter to win a custom stamp! One will be given away at each stop along the hop. We’ll be getting in touch with you via email, so make sure you add your email to your comment! We’ll be drawing winners on Tuesday, the 25th of November, so be sure to leave a comment by then.

The next stop on the ThingsCrafted blog hop is sweet Jennifer McGuire.
Happy blog hopping, friends! Thanks for stopping by today!

  2. COOL custom stamp! Love it! I am thrilled for Britta! I started following her yrs ago when she was a freshman or sophomore in college. At that time she was not “officially” affiliated with any particular stamp company. A couple yrs into it, I moved. My my internet service somehow messed up my email acct and on top of that, my computer went haywire, I lost lots of info, contacts and feeds to blogs I had followed. Hers was one. With so much going on, there were many blogs i never “re-subscribe” to, including Britta’s. I am delighted to know she is opening a crafty company. I look forward to popping over to see what it’s all about. So glad I read your blog or I may never have known. THANKS much! 🙂

  3. Very nice custom stamp. I liked how you used the stamp in different ways just by coloring and/or cutting the words out. I have learned something new. Thanks.

  4. HOW FUN!!! Your custom stamps look FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!! I can SEE they can be used in different ways quite easily—- Even a different color for each word on your one stamp! TOO FUN!!!!!!!! FABULOUS JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀

  5. Love the different fonts on your new stamp, I can see it being used in lots of different ways. Britta’s new company is awesome.

  7. Fun stamp sentiment and can see how versatile this can be with the journaling cards you created and mix of colors…cute!

  8. Lovely cards! I love you’re new stamp. Great saying. I really love stamps with the font opened so you can color inbetween them. Great concept to be able to create you’re own stamps.

  9. Britta’s new business venture is going to be a success if the projects I’ve seen on the hop so far (all 3 of them, so I’m definitely impressed and looking forward to the rest of the stops) are any indication. The sentiment you chose is a great example of what a wonderful idea having a custom stamp is. Nicely done–and fun–as always.
