If you have come here from Michelle Battitori’s Blog , you are on the right path!

To visit each blog for some great ideas just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go! 


IMG_6950Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Life is Wonderful July SOTM Stamp Set, Jackson Paper Packet, inks (Juniper, Barn Red, Cocoa), Sparkle & Shine Washi Tape 3-Pack, Gold Polka-Dot Washi Tape, Chocolate Woodgrain Washi Tape,

With all girls, I don’t use these colors very often but the Jackson papers pair so well with this stamp set.  I used the flourishes to add to the background but stamping second generation with Juniper ink.  The larger stamp makes a nice photo frame.

Now “Hop” on over to Michele Rowley’s Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the Life is Wonderful Stamp Set is only available through the end of July!

This set is available on my website for only $5 with a $50 purchase  OR you can get it for FREE when you purchase $25 in stamps.  Shop now!
