“I love scrapbooks. They are one of the finest ways of dejunking life and abode... A good scrapbook is interesting and inspiring even to the stranger...Well put together scrapbooks and photo albums have warmed more hearts than any bound book... Without a good scrapbook, much that's memorable in life is forgotten or damaged or lost...."

February Stamp of the month blog hop

Welcome to the February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  The stamp set featured this month is D1453 Friendship.  This month we have over 65 wonderful consultants participating and showing off their creations!

If you have come from Tamytha's Blog then you are on the right track.  

If you get lost along the way Helen at Hooked on Stamping has a complete list of all the participants this month.
I decided to do a card this month but later I did use the stamp set on a layout so I will share both with you.  The card is a 4.5 by 4.5 inch square card from the Wishes How-to book, the pattern - Just Right.   On page 61 of the new Spring/Summer Idea book, I loved the color combo of Garden Green, Petal and Smoothie and knew I wanted to create something with those colors.  I created a background with Petal and one of the images alternating full color and second generation stamping.  And so the card came together!

Products used:
Stripe paper from Passages Level 2 Paper packet
Smoothie, Colonial White and Desert Sand cardstock
Petal, Smoothie and Garden Green Ink
Smoothie Brads
Colonial White ribbon

I also used the stamp set on the Sweetheart Workshop on the Go layout that I put together.  Since I don't have a "princess" to scrapbook, I decided to use my friends instead.  The saying from this stamp set worked perfectly in the journaling spot!

Now "Hop" on over to Angela'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 February SOTM is only available until February 28!  Contact me (GrigsterN at yahoo.com) or click here to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!
