Sweet Pea Stamps (SPS) is a small home-based business in Michigan. SPS does not work from a brick and mortar shop. You will find SPS only on line at Sweet Pea Stamps. We pride ourselves in quality and value. Lynette McAnsh, Owner, is a perfectionist. If the product is not top quality, she will not offer it.  Lynette stated her small business selling D.O.T.S. in the 90s. In 1999 she started “Designs, Ink’d” and sold that business in 2004 due to health and family issues. Missing the love of running a small business, and with her children older, she started Sweet Pea Stamps in April 2009. Now, 5 years later, we are representing over 30 artists with digital images and rubber stamps. She does work alone, sometimes with the help of family; her turn-around time may be longer than the big companies. You will always be met with friendly and professional demeanor and her merchandise will always be the highest quality.

Other online places to visit SPS are the Facebook page Sweet Pea Stamps, and our Facebook group, Sweet Pea Stamps Friends and Fans. SPS has a monthly blog challenge at One Sweet Challenge and daily inspiration from SPS’s designers at Sweet Pea Rubber Stamps blog. We hope you join soon.

Our Guest Designers

Pamellia from My Little Craft Things
Hello Everyone! My name is Pamellia Johnson and I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada with my wonderful husband and our two little girls, Scully (a teacup Maltese) and Pebbles (a teacup black Pomeranian). 
I have been crafting in some form or another ever since I was a little kid, thanks to my very creative and talented Mom. I've dabbled in all sorts of crafts, but I think what I enjoy making the most is handmade cards, and I really love doing shabby chic projects with tons of lace, pearls and flowers!
When Doris gave me the theme of Spring Flowers, I just knew had to put on my creative cap and make something extra special. I used my favourite flower stamp with the emboss resist technique and then watercoloured my background and fussy cut flowers with some bright spring colours.
Thank you so much to the Crafting by Designs team for inviting me to spend the day with them. I am thrilled and honoured to be here with such a talented group of artists. 

 Hi I am Rebecca Billard. I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada with my wonderful husband. I have been paper crafting for many years now. I love to make cards most, but I also like to make mini albums and would love to try my hand in making a journal.  I would like to say thank you to Crafting by Designs for allowing me to be a Guest Designer for this weeks Challenge.

Tracey from

Hi, my name is Tracey. I live in Manitoba Canada on a small acreage with my husband of nearly 20 years along with our daughter (12) and son (9). I have been paper crafting for about 15 years as time allows when not busy tidying the house, doing laundry or driving around children! I dabble a bit in mixed media and scrapbooking, but my real passion is card making...especially in the vintage style! As of late, I've been bitten by the Pocket Letter's a fantastic way to use up scraps and to get to know people from all over the world!
 It's such an honor to be able to guest design with Crafting by Designs today! Hope you'll enjoy what I've created for your viewing pleasure!
