Stamp of Approval Blog Hop


Hi friends!
I am very excited to be participating in a blog hop featuring some of the amazing goodies found in the Stamp of Approval Friendship Collection.  I have had a blast working with all the products in the box.
I am so inspired and keep thinking of more and more ideas to try out. 
Everything is so fun to work with!  

 The box contains products that can be used together to create many different cards.  
They can also be used along with products you already have in your supplies!  Awesome!!

Here is one of the many cards I created.


For this card, I used the stencil that comes in the box to create my own patterned paper.




This stencil is an awesome tool to get perfectly spaced stamping. 
 Can you think of other stamps in your stash that you could use to create your own patterned papers using this stencil?  
I know I have many more ideas using this technique.

One lucky commenter will win the Stamp of Approval Friendship Collection!
Your chances of winning increase if you comment on each blog hop post.
Comments close on Friday at noon EST and winners will be announced on Catherine's blog.
**The box is only available while supplies last.** 
If the winner has already purchased a box they will be reimbursed.


Here is the hop list:

Thank you for visiting and happy hopping!
