Watermelon2stamp & Die Set from the Stamps of Life!

Hi everyone!  Is summer winding down where you live?  It is here! Only a couple more weeks until the summer is over, and school begins (insert me jumping for joy!)... I thought today I would share a few projects I made with the watermelon2stamp and die set that was released last month! It is part of the monthly stamp and die club, but you CAN order now! How fun is that!!!  This is one of my favourite stamp sets so far... I mean... who doesn't love watermelon?!?

Here is a collage for all of you who like to pin this to pinterest:

Here are the three cards I made so far with this set:

So head on over to the Stamps of Life store and get yours today... or better yet... sign up for their club and you will never miss another cute stamp & die set again :)!

Are you a PLANNER?

So have you jumped on board the "planner" trend recently?  This year creative planning has really taken off, and I am slowly getting use to it! I started my downloading planner sheets that I can print out when I need them! Now I am thinking I might need something more concreate as I REALLY like the whole idea of creative planning... especially since I don't have a huge chunk of time to be creative like I use to, and this combines me organizing my week AND creative time all in one! 

So I have been super excited EACH month to have the STAMPS OF LIFE release new planner stamps and dies! YIPPEE! Yes I was super excited!  This past month I received the highlighters4planner set, and LOVED it... I wanted to show how it works perfectly for cardmakers and planners (even scrapbookers!) this set is so versatile.... you will LOVE it!

Here is the card I made:

I love how this card turned out! I also used the die: HELLO!  I love the font on this die set!

Of course I did a "mock" planner page too, for you to see how to use the stamp in a planner:

Are you ready to see the stamp set:

So many possibilities for this stamp set! I LOVE it! You should see what other design team members have created! SO inspiring! Go take a look at the gallery HERE!

Kids Craftin' with the Stamps of life

Hi everyone! I was cruising through my blog and instagram and realized I didn't post about how to make your stamps into crafts for your kids! I am going to try and make this a monthly feature for my blog readers and hopefully some of you will be able to get some fun ideas to use your stamps in different ways and to fight that summer boredom!

We made this craft during our "pet" week in the daycare!  It uses one of my favourite stamp sets so far: cat2stamp ! I love to use Stephanie's designs, especially the bigger stamps to create fun projects for my kids in the daycare! This craft we did awhile back, but you will get the idea

First step is stamp the image on a white sheet of paper in the top left hand corner.

Next is to place it on your printer/copier and change the settings to increase it so it fits the page.  You may have to print a few times, changing the % increase in order to get the size that works!  I then take the larger image and photocopy it enough times for the kids in the daycare (be sure to use cardstock if you are going to paint on it!).

Next up, is to get the kids to paint them! We chose a brown colour to paint today!

Once it is dry, you can cut them out for the kids, or for the older kids, they can cut them out!

Finally you can add the details to the craft! You can choose whatever you what! For this craft, we used googly eyes, puffy paint, stickles, and white yarn! So fun!

So even the kids can have sun with the Stamps of Life!  Here is another craft we did with the whale2stamp set:

Same applied to this craft! But we added eyes and a cute smile!  They are so cute!!

Hope to bring you another Kids craft next month with the Stamps of Life!  Enjoy your crafting time!
