STAMPlorations 5th Birthday Event...Three Favourite Oldies and some Newcomers


This June, STAMPlorations turns FIVE and a full-on Birthday Bash Palooza is happening, with inspiration posts from the STAMPlorations gals, CASE and Link-Up parties, prizes, sales, freebies, and more!

I'm honoured and grateful to part of the STAMPlorations' family; thank you, Shery, for your support, generosity and wonderful design opportunities! I LOVE being a STAMP gal!

Here, as well as at the STAMPlorations Blog, I'm sharing my Top 3 Favourite Projects (narrowing to three was a real challenge!), along with a couple new projects.
Let's start with some oldies:

Favourite #1
STAMPlorations The Bee's Knees *And Coffee

Favourite #2

Favourite #3 - I made 25 of these for my nephew's kindergarten class! Tooooo much fun!

Two NEW cards, featuring STAMPlorations products I reach for time and again - STENCILS - and my 'usual' style - CAS.  I'm 'very' CAS!

Card 1: 

Distress Inks: Mermaid Lagoon, Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry

Card #2
Distress Inks: Twisted Citron, Lucky Clover, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean

Hope my CAS creations spark ideas of ways to give YOUR stencils a chance to shine on the stage.

Of course, we want YOU to be part of the festivities!
Three options...do one, or two or, hopefully, all three!
