Stamp Of The Month
There's a new stamp of the month in town. Meet the gorgeous Family Is Forever!
As always, you can buy this gorgeous stampset outright for $27, OR when you spend $75 you can get it for only $5. It's a great value with 7 different images on the one sheet. I've seen it used for heritage layouts, wedding layouts, wedding/love cards, and for Christmas cards! It would be super adorable for new baby or new family projects or even nature themed crafts. So many different uses!
I had a chance at the recent Monday FunDay to make an adorable little card using this new SOTM and the new Brushed paper packet. Depending on the ink colors used, this stampset can be used for almost anything!
Once all my paper pieces were cut, I decided to use the floral embossing folder that came with my Cuttlebug to enhance them. It's as easy as sandwiching the paper in the folder, then stacking with the 3 plates and running through the machine! So easy!
A little bit of assembly later, and here we have it! The heart cluster, vine heart, and flower stamps are all from Family Is Forever. A perfect complement to the Brushed papers, don't you think?
This little stamped "belly band" slips off the card and then you can open it up.
This would be adorable with a little instagram photo in the middle and a bit of journaling.
The card can also stand up. Super easy and super cute!
I've also set up some events for the month. These are for beginners and experienced crafters alike! Click each link to see more details and to book in. Just email or ring to book in!
