Make New Friends and Use the Old (and Giveaway Day 4!)

Good evening, and welcome to the Stamp of the Month blog hop.  For those of you waiting patiently for my final daily prize giveaway, it's here too!  If you've arrived here from Traci Godbee's blog, you're in the right place.  When you're done here, you can hop along to Teri Baxter's The Midnight Artist.

This month, I wanted to show you that just because we buy new goodies doesn't mean that we have to abandon the things we already have.  I combined our versatile stamp of the month, Friendship, with a discontinued paper from (I believe) the Perfect Day paper packet.

I chose the Tulip colored piece of patterned paper to fit the 40th Anniversary theme, and used one of the stamps to give my layout an elegant feel by stamping in black on white cardstock, creating an additional patterned paper.  My layout is from the Magic layout pattern sketch book.  I enhanced my Tulip patterned paper by adding Glitz to the dots printed on the paper, and I stamped my title using Tulip ink and the Old World Alphabet stamps.  Finally, I added a few simple embellishments using brads and a photo turn (on my journaling block) from the Mini-Medley Accents Tulip Collection.

Now, for the giveaway!  Today's prize consists of a couple of "lovey" stamp sets from CTMH, a pink ribbon assortment, more of the "Be Mine" ribbon from American Crafts, and 3 packs of colored chipboard accents form Heidi Swapp. 

Rules for entry are easy and as follows:

  • You must be a follower
  • Just leave a comment to enter (limit one entry per person, and make sure I have a way to contact you) 
  • Entries must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. on Friday, February 4th.
There's still time to enter for the other days' prizes as well!  Just visit my older posts to enter.  Now, it's time to hop along to The Midnight Artist!  Enjoy the rest of the hop.
