Why are we featuring this set? Oh, I don't know...maybe because it is WAY easy to use and WAY cute and WAY fun! Yup. Lotsa ways, but they are all totally for real!

Shannan created a fabulous sketch for the team to work with, as well!


Soooo, here's the deal, the Stamp Tramps have all created fabulous cards with this sketch along with our guest designers for this month! This is what YOU need to do...check out all the cards and use them as the fabulous inspirational springboard that they are and then RUN and CREATE your own card using the sketch and any supplies you have at home! Post a link to your card on SSD's blog and YOU could WIN!!! Yup. Winning is fun. You get a fabulous badge for your blog to show off your win AND you get a treat, too! Yup. Winning is totally fun!

I have a confession. I've had this card made for a week and a half now. Yup. It isn't the best one I've ever made, but at least there is some excuse for that! HA! It was made at the same time as last week's card when I still had some remaining stuff on my desk...that was still standing. HA! My stuff is still packed up, but it's pretty much killing me, so I fully intend to find a way to create over the next couple of days. FOR. REALS. you guys. Moving is stressful, yes, but totally doable, but this whole going without creating thing...that is pure suckage and I'm pretty much done with it. We went to IKEA last night to get some curtains for the new house and a lamp for my studio since there is no overhead lighting and I saw inspiration EVERYWHERE! It was killer! I can't wait to create again!!!

SOOO...that is why YOU GUYS simply MUST participate in this week's sketch! I need you to create so I can live vicariously through you! HA! No...but, really, though. I'm only sort of kidding. GO MAKE SOMETHING!

  1. your piece is cool - I like it! Like the template too. Don't know if I'll have time tot play but has my wheels turning (smell the smoke?LOL)

    The stampington mags have an art call our for a new magazine. They are looking for layouts & examples that readers can work from. This would be perfect.

    Good luck with the move & have a fab day
