A Year in Review – Day 1

Before we jump on into the New Year in full swing,  let us take a look back at the great work of 2011. It was  a fantastic year! In 2011, I posted 281 posts on PSA Stamp Camp – a giant leap from 2010's mere 42 posts! As of last Tuesday, December 20th, we had 75,236 page views in 2011. As the number of posts and the page views have grown, so has the quality of the work that we've been sharing. Our newest design team is full of creative ideas that have expanded past the realm of card making and scrapbooking, and into sewing, home décor, party planning, and clothing. Over the next few days, I am taking a look back at my favorite posts of 2011. They're across the spectrum but they have one thing in common – they're fabulous!

Take a look back at my daughter's 2nd birthday invitations. The cards were ordered from Tiny Prints, the design is by Tallu-lah who is well-known for her stunning letter press stationery. See her greeting cards and learn more about her here: tale/.

I ordered vintage stamps from Paper Nickel Stamp Company ( The owner and mastermind behind this business Holly picked out these stamps me once I showed her the invitation – she customized the postage stamps to the theme of the party and the colors in the invitation.

Since the party is an ice cream social, I asked Dawn at PSA Essentials to create a truly custom PSA Essentials stamp. It reads "Molly's 2nd Birthday Party" and has an ice-cream cone in the center. I'll be using it to craft party hats, pennant flags and more decorations! I stamped the backs of these invitations and the fronts of a few I was hand delivering.

This was such a fun one!
