Things Crafted Grand Opening Blog Hop

Hello, friends. I'm so excited to be taking part in the grand opening blog hop for Things Crafted! 

You should be arriving here from the blog of the talented Chari Moss. 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. 

I chose the small square stamp and i asked Britta to work her magic on it. I wanted Handmade By Mary Dawn and I chose the script style. I love how looks on the backs of my cards.

Custom stamp options at Things Crafted:


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 received the large happy stamp to play with. It's the perfect size to be the focal point of your card. And it looks fantastic when heat embossed, just sayin'.


Thank you 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.


There's also a special treat for everyone in the blog hop - 15% off your order until Tuesday, November 25th using the code GRAND15OFF as part of the Grand Opening event! The next stop on the ThingsCrafted blog hop is the mastermind behind Things Crafted, herself, Britta Swiderski! Happy hopping!
