    The Strawberry Delight file folders are darling! I like your style and I’d like to see you try your hand at stationary. I think you could make something really cute!

  4. Julie Says:

    My fave item is the Create Joy greeting card.

    I like all your items, maybe I would suggest magnets with the cute lil owls.
    Thanks for the chance!

  5. shareleann Says:

    i like the “create joy” card best. i think you should make/carry some “miss you” cards.

  6. Renee G Says:

    My favorite item is the Trick of Treat Card. I have to say I’d love to see more birthday cards. We have a large family and I’m always out of Birthday cards.

  7. CallMePretty Says:

    1. I adore the Always Good Times card

    2. I’d love it if you offered a more traditional tag that could be used for holiday gifts but that still had your lovely flair of colour and design.

  8. Playing Out Time Says:

    I really like the owls. Anything owls is awesome. The card, the cuts. Love em! I think you should have Card and Die Cut sets and other die cuts.

  9. 1. I love, love the mini Thank You cards. Miniature things have always held a special place in my heart, especially tiny stationary.
    I think I’d like to see more “masculine” colors. I’ve always been more attracted to strong colors, rather than soft colors.

    I like the dotted thanks handmade card the best.

    I’d like to see card packs with 5-6 different cards in coordinating, but not exactly the same, designs. Those would be nice for gifts.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    I love the “love you” card! You should sell more cards with those adorable little owls!

  15. Tracy Says:

    I really like this :Cupcakey Birthday card simply put I am all about this cupcake fad LOL. What I would love to see because I have a kid who is all about Teddy bears is just that – Teddy bears -but not the normal baby teddy bears – she is nine and LOVES them and hates that all these stores have them in baby – she wants to see big kid bears – loves raggedy bears like hers 😉 Not sweet brand new bears in blue and pink 🙂 There is my idea for you! From my daughter!

  16. Amber Says:

    I like the mini file folder die cuts, especially the summer stripes one. That is a cute idea for scrapbooking.

    I think you could offer scrapbook page sets, with everything you need for one layout and instructions. I also think some of your designs could be adapted really well for personalized stationary.

  17. Amber Says:

  33. marie sierra Says:

    and i now follow your blog! thanks again..marie!

  34. Rachel's Cottage House Says:

    I’ve got to say my favorite are your sweet little owls! Maybe if you could add a computer paper with a cute design boarder on it – that would be different. (my email address should be within my comment already since I’m a wordpress user)

    By the way, you and your commenters should stop on over to my blog for a nice little giveaway I’m hosting. You can get up to four entries!


  35. Elaine Says:

    1. The Big Day card is my favourite! I love everything of it- from the print to the colours.
    2. Pop-up cards/ pop-up card templates. Stamp sets.

  36. Wehaf Says:

    1. I love your Halloween cards!
    2. I don’t know if you should offer more items; stores that have a few items that they specialize in tend to do better than stores that offer lots of items. If you do expand your inventory, do it a little at a time to see what works; I would suggest postcards to start with. Maybe in packs of 3 or 5.

  37. Heidi Kratzke Says:

    1) My favorite is: Black/Green Flower Set
    2) You should also offer: some items maybe with vintage paper… I think the aged look would add a neat touch to some of your products

  38. Kelli Robinson Says:

    My favorite item in your shop is the Thank you notes – set of 6. I personally love to buy in quantity and I think you would benefit by listing more sets of cards. Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  46. Brook Holden Says:

    1. My favorite item is the earring tags. My 5 yr old daughter insists that she keeps her earrings in HER jewelry box. I would like to have some of these to help keep them together in her box.
    2. I think you should add some teacher items in your shop, like maybe some thank you notes when we get gifts from our wonderful students.

  47. shenais Says:

    i like the hip to be square card.
    i think you should offer postcards, too.

  48. Shairbearg Says:

    I like this: Welcome Baby Girl card
    and am wanting to see some cards for baby boys!

  49. julia Says:

    love the Mini Thank You Cards – Set of 6
    you could add notepads

  50. I took your advice, Tazim!! Check out my shop! 🙂 Thanks so much for entering the drawing and for the great suggestion!

  51. I have that on my list, Ashley!! I’ll keep you posted when I get it all listed. I’m so excited as I have lots of cute ideas for stationary floating around in my head! 😉

  52. Thanks, Share!! 🙂 I actually have in the past, but I do need to make more to keep stocked in my shop! Thanks for the great suggestion!

  53. Thanks for the suggestion, Renee! I don’t know why I struggle with birthday cards. I DEFINITELY have that on my list. Keep your eyes out! I’ll get the shop stocked with more of them soon! 🙂

  54. Thank you so much, pretty! 🙂 I will work on that…I planned on getting some tags out for Christmas, but haven’t gotten around to it yet. Will do that soon! 🙂

  55. Thanks Lisa!! I actually do have die cuts now!! They were in the works while the giveaway was going on. 🙂 More to come…

  56. Hi Zombie! What’s funny is that my personal style involves more masculine colors (for example: I NEVER wear pink, but create with it a LOT for some reason). I definitely need to incorporate more “manly” colors and bolder color combos into my designs more. Thanks so much for the suggestion! 🙂

  57. Definitely on my list, Annika! Notebooks/journals are a MUST!! 🙂 Keep your eyes out!

  58. Hi Lieu! Hmmm…sticky notes? Not sure about that, but I can definitely do notepads and labels!! Both are on my list and I have some more little crafty creatures up my sleeves too. 😉

  59. Wonderful idea, Liza!! I now carry thank you note sets in my shop, but I will work on some coordinating sets as well. Greatness!! 🙂

  60. Aww!! Thanks, Tessa! I’m pretty partial to them too. 🙂 For the record, I usually send some freebie owls when you place an order in my shop. 😉

  61. I would have never thought of that, Micki!! Thanks so much for the “groovy” idea!! 🙂

  62. Definitely a super idea, dam 🙂 I will have to work on that soon – for sure! Thanks so much!

  63. Hi Kelli! Several have suggested this and I will most definitely be working on that soon! Thanks so much for the suggestion and your participation in the giveaway! 🙂

  64. Good point, Wehaf! I have many ideas in the works now, but agree that expanding slowly is a wonderful thought. Thanks so much! 🙂

  65. Hi Natalia! Christmas tags are coming soon!! 🙂
