Since the special this month is a FREE August Stamp of the Month set, I thought I'd give you a few ideas for this set. I think this set is adorable, and so far, I've made some cards and one scrapbooking layout with it.

Here's the stamp set that you can get for FREE through the end of August with every $50 order:

Very cute!

Here's a card that I made using this stamp set:

This card uses the Laughing Lola paper, along with some Lagoon, White Daisy, and Black cardstock. I also used some Black Shimmer Trim along the sides of the purple patterned paper and the Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel on the top of the cupcake.

On this layout I used the Sarita paper with some Outdoor Denim cardstock. I cut a few shapes with the new Cricut Artbooking cartridge, and I added some Aqua DotsTrinkets Wooden Shapes, and some of the new Lagoon Houndstooth Washi Tape.

Thanks for taking a look, and don't miss out on getting this great stamp set for FREE!

Sarita Layout

I know it's been quite awhile since I've posted any artwork, but I have been creating a lot lately! I'm planning on posting quite a bit of what I've been working on soon. So keep checking back!

The layout that I'm posting today is one that I made for a class I'm taking at Big Picture Classes - Stashbusters Anonymous. This class is all about using up your stash, and it's been so much fun! Our first challenge for week 2 was to use several metal accessories on our page. So I went through what I had and pulled out some retired metal tags from Close to My Heart. It just so happened that the colors matched the new Sarita paper perfectly! So here's what I came up with:

I really liked how it turned out, even though it was something very different from what I would normally do. I love how this class is pushing me to do different things!

Everything on this page is from Close to My Heart, and the title was cut from the new Cricut Artbooking cartridge.

Thanks for taking a look!
