“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...."

June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  The stamp set featured this month is D1457 Jubilation.  This month we have 54 wonderful consultants participating and showing off their creations!

If you have come from Jen's Blog then you are on the right track!

This month's stamp set is so versatile!  There are so many images on this stamp set that you should find it difficult to find a holiday you couldn't use it for!   I wanted to go in so many directions with this stamp set and throughout the month I'm sure I will be creating more with it!  The 2 creations that I have made so far are a great summer layout using the fireworks image and the celebrate image and Fanfare papers.  I didn't have the perfect pictures but my cousin did!  I absolutely love how this turned out!

I also wanted to challenge myself to use most or all of the images with this set to create a project.  I decided it was time to make an event calendar to keep all my friends and families birthdays and anniversaries straight.  I used the Mayberry paper pack and I managed to use all but 3 of the stamps!   I love this stamp set and I think you are going to too!
