NEW RELEASE Mothers & Fathers 2014 Blog Hop



We would like to celebrate our new Mothers & Fathers 2014 release with you by “hopping’ along and sharing some amazing projects!

Before we get to the hop, be sure to check out the PDF catalog below…


Our families are growing!  You may have heard, Shari Carroll is going to be a grandma to a baby girl this summer.  AND my brother and his wife are also having their first baby.  It will be my first niece :)  SO EXCITED!  My daughter will finally have a lil’ buddy during our family gatherings.  That’s great because I think she’s starting to lose interest in the games her big brother and her boy cousins prefer – mud stomping, truck racing, and minecraft (is this an addiction, or what!? )

Shari designed the Expectant Mother Stamp & Die set to celebrate this joyous occasion.  Check out the awesome card she created!
Shari Carroll Terrific Mom

We also have an amazing card created by Emily, one of Simon’s amazing, talented teammates.  She is part of our home office team in Columbus Ohio and a graduate of Columbus College of Art & Design.  Emily is new to the card making world and had joined us to celebrate the Mothers and Fathers release!  Thank you Emily for sharing your card & talent with us :)


We’re so excited to hear what you think of the new products and hope the rest of these amazing designers help to inspire you at each stop!

We have a really fun giveaway for this release hop! We will be randomly picking one commenter from each stop on the hop to win 2 brand new, not-yet released ink pads and coordinating packs of cardstock from the new color collection coming out on April 15, 2014!

Just leave a comment on each of the blog posts (including this one!) as you hop along to be entered in the random drawings. The giveaways will stay open until Thursday April 10, 2014 at 6:00pm EST and the winners will be announced on the Simon Says Stamp blog on Friday April 11, 2014.

We would love to hear if you have a favorite product from this release!

Good luck & happy hopping!
*Note: there will be no Color Coordinates post today.  We will resume the regular Friday Color Coordinates series next Friday.
