Celebrate Women Blog Hop!

Celebrate Women Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, friends! We are so excited to welcome you to a very special blog hop today!

In the wee hours of the morning today, we unveiled two beautiful new Simon exclusive stamp sets that celebrate women. We can’t wait for you to see!

Incredible Woman is a gorgeous 6×8 set that features clever sentiments with “hidden” titles for women—Mother, Mama, Grandma, Mum, and Aunt—and beautiful florals, too. There are so many creative possibilities with this set!

The second set—Good Job Mama (a CZ Design exclusive set for Simon Says Stamp)—celebrates the real talk of motherhood. Give your mama friends the encouragement they crave to power through the runny noses, the endless laundry, and the major meltdowns. Those female connections help to ease the frustrations and doubts that creep in when things seem to be out of control. This set also includes coordinating dies for extra interest and dimension.

OK! Let’s get a sneak peek of what’s in store for our blog hop today with inspiration from Shari Carroll! Shari used the Incredible Woman stamp set to create this beautiful tribute to mom:
