I always try to be original when I'm creating stamping projects for you, but sometimes my brain is on design overload or I see a layout or card that is so perfect for what I have in mind that I CASE (Copy And Share Everything) it completely. Such is the case (no pun intended) with this July's Page of the Month layout. I saw a page in Memory Makers Magazine by Hillary Heidelberg that had such a fun feel to it that I knew it would be great for the Garden Whimsy stamp set featured this month. I love how the design flows around the photographs, the use of our new In Colors, and the combination of the butterflies, circles and buttons. Yes, this is a HAPPY page! It makes me smile and I hope you are too!
If you think you aren't artistic and are afraid to design your own cards or scrapbook pages, you don't have to! Remember, there are over 500 hand-stamped samples in the Fall/Winter Collection Catalog to spark your imagination. Stampin' Up! makes coordinating colors and stamps easy for you by bundling images in sets and developing color families for our inks, markers, ribbons and embellishments. Don't be afraid to let the creative side of you shine, you may be surprised at how beautiful your own projects turn out. Before we know it, you'll be joining my Stampin' Up! Sparkles Team and teaching others the joy of stamping too!
