June Stamp of the Month - Wonderful Friend

Tonight's post is going to be a quick one so I can slide in under the wire. You know me: Last Minute Latisha!

If you're traveling on the CTMH Blog Hop, you should have arrived from Allison Mullen's blog. After you view this bolg, you will travel to Laurie Newton's blog.

The June Stamp of the Month - D1422 Wonderful Friend - has a Father's Day theme, but can be used for many other celebrations. For my 4x4 card, I used the tie as a background because my husband doesn't wear ties. Hopefully this will inspire you to look outside of the box when working with this set.

Products used:
D1422 Wonderful Friend
Z2135 New England Ivy Ink Pad
Z2140 Outdoor Denim In Pad
Z2114 Cocoa Ink Pad
1301 Bamboo Cardstock
X5642 Cocoa Cardstock
1388 Colonial White Cardstock
Z1146 Pewter Designer Brads

As always, all these products are available on my website.
(Sorry about the blurry picture - I was holding the baby when I took the picture.)

2 - 4 - 1!!! May Stamp of the Month AND National Scrapbooking Month Special

This month you get a sneak peak at 2 of my most favorite items released with the new Idea Book (Summer 2010) that goes live on May 1:
  • May Stamp of the Month - D1421 Cherish the Moment
  • Miracle Kit for National Scrapbooking Month
If you're blog hopping, you should have arrived from Laura Dame's blog. If you're continuing in the hop, you're next stop is Shirley Ross's blog. But, before you rush off, spend some time browsing through the creations on this stop!

I can't say how much I LOOOOVVVVEEEEEE this set! Having a background in English/Journalism, I think journaling is very important on scrapbook pages because it tells the story to those who weren't present at the event. I admit, however, that I don't always journal like I should. This set will make it so easy to record the important information without a lot of journaling (for those times when the creative juices are flowing and you don't want to stop to journal about the event).

This stamp set, as well as all the products used on these samples are available on my website.

I admit up front that there is little originality in my creations this month. I used the Miracle Kit to create the pages. The cool thing about this kit is that it gives you EVERYTHING you need to create the pages except the ink and pictures! When you finish creating, you'll have 4 completed pages and scraps to create some cards!

The kit includes:
5 – Colonial White Cardstock, 1 – Bamboo Cardstock, 1 – Floral B&T Duos® Paper, 1 – Stripe B&T Duos® Paper, 1 – Crystal Blue Circle B&T Duos® Die-Cut, 1 – Sweet Leaf Bracket B&T Duos® Die-Cut, 1 – 6" x 12" My Stickease® Assortment, 1 – 6" x 9" Irresistibles™ Chipboard Die-Cuts, 1 – Mini-Medley Accents Colonial White Collection, 12" Colonial White Waxy Flax, 3 – 4" x 6" Memory Protectors® Flip Flaps™, 2 – Sponges, 1 – Directions cutting guide. All of this for only $19.95! You can even get it for free! 

Now hop on over to Shirley Ross's for more creations!
