The Crafter’s Workshop/Impression Obsession/Balzer Designs Blog Hop!

In March The Crafter’s Workshop and Impression Obsession quietly debuted a line of six new matching stencils and stamp sets designed by Julie Balzer .

Each stamp set works independently.
Each stencil works independently.
Each stencil has a matching stamp set.  Each stamp set a matching stencil.
And they work together.

Hop along to these fine ladies…
One lucky person will win  a set of all six stencil and stamp sets!
