Design Team Focus on New Release – A Way With Words

Hi Everyone,

We have another release for you today! This time from Licensed Designer Suzanne Cannon/A Way With Words  releases her A Touch of Elegance Collection.

Suzanne’s words and greetings begin with her own unique pen and ink hand-lettering, not computer fonts. Dies are large enough to star on card fronts and they are perfect for journal pages, mixed media, and more.

We are adding 21 new die sets and 3 new Clear Stamp sets to the A Way With Words Collection.

Let’s take a look at what our Design Team created using them!
