These are all so fun! How creative and clever! My fave is the party ensemble, I just love all those bright colors. Can't wait to see what else Stephanie comes up with!

Kathy McDonald

These are all fabulous! I can't wait to see what else she has in store for us.


WOW! These designs are beautiful! The creativity she puts in is unbelievable. Thanks for sharing!


Oh my goodness. These are so cute. I aspire to be this creative. Keep up the good work.


Wow! I'll have to make a pilgrimage to Sacramento just to visit Stephanie's shop! (SF bay area is kind of lacking in good crafts stores).


Let me tell you....Stephanie ROCKS! A group of girlfriends and I take stamp classes every month at Stephanie's shop, The Paper Garden. She is such a talented lady. We have a ball making all kinds of fun things. Her shop is loaded with ideas & she and her staff are always more than willing to help. You will be very pleased with what she has to offer.


Totally love Stephanie's designs! Thanks for the chance to win! Have a great week!


What awesome stuff!! I really love the fortune cookie!

Jessie McLaughlin

Love Stephanie's ideas and projects! The fortune cookie rocks!!


Love the designs!


In spite of all the A Muse stamps I have, I still don't have the Gerbera Daisy so I would love to win this drawing. I am looking forward to seeing more of Stephanie's projects and perhaps visiting her store when I am in Roseville this weekend.


i just LOVE Stephanie's designs - shut UP! :)


These are all SO cute. That fortune cookie is adorable and I love that little note set!


I LOVE the designs and colors used! How fresh for spring!

The bookmark is a fabulous idea. What a neat gift idea to give with a bookstore giftcard to really personalize it.


Stephanie, these are all fabulous!!! You rock!


Wowzer! I love that tape dispenser-smart! Everything is super cute!


SO SO Cute.
That bookmark is INSPIRED! I'll be making some of those for gifts this year - maybe for my daughter's class.
Love it.

I was totally looking for the source for the patterned paper in the second sample. Then I realized Stephanie made it! With A Muse stamps! Could it get any better?


Oh my gosh...are those fortune cookies the best or what? Awesome stuff!

Since I have found Stephanie's store, I am so impressed with her ideas. I love her classes and her creations look great, but with her help you learn they are simpler than they look. Thanks for posting her on your blog.

WOW! How creative! I love everything. From the themed invitations/thank yous to the fortune cookie. I am bowing down to you Waynes World style - Not Worthy! haha.


I love the fortune cookie!!! I fear that if I tried to make one, it would have all sorts of funny "scrunch" lines and folds, but it would be great to try it all the same. I can just see coming to a dinner party with those on each plate for name tags. Too cute!

Susan N

Super cute! Stephanie mentioned that her son loves trains. I was wondering if she could share where she finds cute train stamps, etc. I have a 4 yo who loves trains too and I'm always looking for train stamps.


Beautiful work Stephanie! Thanks for sharing.

Cute projects! Stephanie mentioned that her son loves trains. Mine does too so I was wondering if she knows where I can find train stamps, paper, etc.

I am a regular customer of Stephanie's shop and have taken several classes there, especially the Asian themed ones. She has such wonderful creations. Ken, Laurie and Kelly are very helpful and talented too!! Miles is an adorable little guy. Thanks for having her as a guest designer. The honor is well deserved. Have seen the office set in her shop, it is fantastic!! Can't wait to meet Linda next week when she is at Stephanie's shop for a few classes. Am taking 2 of her classes.


I am always looking for neat new ways to impress those crafters I work with, and this fortune cookie is exactly what I am looking for. I love the idea!


What a great choice for a guest designer! I wonder if she'd share the template for the fortune cookies with us? ;)
