Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: 
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North 
was not enough of a challenge,  
Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little
 Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting
 by opening an online store full of her illustrations. 
That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one
 of the leading companies in digital images, 
and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to 
sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way
 over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, 
you're bound to find all that you need and more 
to create your paper projects. 
Jodie works very hard to provide 
New Releases and Freebies every week!

If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), 
you can find Bugaboo Stamps stamps at Totally Stampalicious.
 And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

  11. I have to say this - you all have the SWEETEST Design Team I've ever encountered. Seriously, I have never entered any challenge where SO MANY of the DT Members took the time to stop by, see the entry, and copy on my entry. It's a blessing! Thanks for being what a united and supportive DT should be. I will be playing along a lot more often!
