Happy Tuesday, Pinkfresh friends! Welcome to a very special post, about a very special baby and a very special day. Hi! My name is Lea Lawson, and if you don't know me, I am the marketing director for Pinkfresh Studio. I am also the mom to Layton, a very sweet little boy who graced us with his presence for 5 months, 7 days. Here is my little cutie.
Layton was born 11 weeks premature on June 9th, 2016 with 2 serious medical conditions. He fought for every moment of his special life, before taking up residence in Heaven with his big sister, Ellie on November 17, 2016. In honor of Layton's memory, today marks the 2nd annual Layton's Legacy Card Drive & Fundraiser.
Before I get to a very special stamp & die set, I want to give you all the links you need for Layton's Legacy. You can read more about Layton, and find out all the information you need about the card drive & fundraiser on my personal blog post:
You can also donate directly to the fundraiser:
You will find all of the information about what the fundraising efforts will go towards in both of the links above.
Today, I want to introduce a stamp & die set that is basically a part of my heart in the form of photopolymer. I came to Kinnari early this summer with the idea of releasing a stamp set to benefit Layton's Legacy. And I wanted it to help cardmakers convey a message of sensitive sympathy. And while some of the sentiments are geared towards the loss of a pregancy or baby, we made sure to include sensitive sentiments that could be used for any type of loss.
Without further ado, I am so excited to introduce Forever in our Hearts. $5 from the purchase of every stamp set, and $3 from the purchase of every die set will benefit Layton's Legacy fundraising efforts.

I have created a set of cards using this beautiful stamp set, as have some of our cardmaking team members and some very welcomed guests. I teared up as these cards made their way into my inbox, and I hope you love them as much as I do.
If they have written a corresponding blog post, I have linked it to their name. Please be sure to check out their blog posts, and get more info on how they've created their beautiful cards!
Such incredible cards from some incredibly talented designers. Thank you SO much for being part of Layton's Legacy. I appreciate it more than words can say.
We hope you love this special stamp & die set. While it's hard to create cards for such a huge loss, it's also so important to let people going through it know how much they are loved. I wouldn't have made it through the loss of two babies without people surrounding me with support, and acknowledging the reality of what I was going through.
We hope you will join in on Layton's Legacy Card Drive & Fundraising efforts, whether you purchase this beautiful stamp set, donate directly, share about the fundraising efforts and/or create a card for the card drive. Please know that everything counts, and I am so thankful for your support.
