“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...."

July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  Things at my house have been crazy so I am very lucky to have found some time to create a project for the hop!  The stamp set featured this month is S1207 Live Out Loud. This month we have 56 wonderful consultants participating and showing off their creations. 

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

 This month's stamp set is great for cards and scrapbook layouts alike.  I am not much of a card maker so I again made a layout using this stamp set.  I now have 2 wonderful girls that I am fostering and this layout showcases us and our personalities....this was the perfect stamp set!  The first shows the layout without photos, the second with.  I still have to add the journaling.

Products used (all CTMH except where noted):
S1207 Live Out Loud Stamp Set
Pennant Alphabet Stamp Set
Dotty for You Paper pack
Gypsy and Colonial White Cardstock
