Week 149: VINTAGE


It's time for a new cue word and we're stepping back in time!  We're curious to see what this word makes you think of!

Waffle Flower is joining us as our sponsor this week! 

Waffle Flower Crafts started in April 2014 to explore possibilities in product designs. We like to think of ourselves as a tool company. We hope our stamps, dies and inks will help make crafting fun and approachable for everyone!

Fun, Inspiring, Versatile and Easy to use; all of our products were designed with our FIVE code in mind. We’re dedicated to bringing you the best crafting experience by using high quality photopolymer for our stamps, safe metal for our dies; all made in USA.

We are now proud to have over 70 products in our product line with many more coming every quarter.

We hope you can find time to create and make something today!
