ThingsCrafted Grand Opening Blog Hop

Hello, everyone! You should be arriving here from Linda'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! They 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.


It was so fun to be able to create a custom stamp! I thought it would be awesome to have one of those "handmade by..." stamps for the back of my cards. I've always wanted one of those!
I loved that I got to choose from Britta's fun hand drawn fonts. They are so playful and cute! I chose the Extra-Small Rectangle stamp because I tend to make little cards, and I wanted to make sure it would fit on any size, and it is perfect!

I recently made some cute Hedgehugs cards, so I thought I should stamp the back of them before I sent them. I love that with this stamp, I can choose any color ink, too. It's nice to have that option that I wouldn't have with a self-inker. It's fun to coordinate the personalized stamp with the colors of my card!


I can't wait to send these! Thank you to Britta for making such a cute stamp! I just love that cute little tag that came on it, too!

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 Chari's Blog. Happy hopping!

Thank you so much for visiting!
Have an amazing day,
