Just this week I received something exciting in the mail (I love getting happy mail!). It was a new stamp set, and although you might think that's too regular an occurrence for me to be excited about it, the extra great thing about this one was that it was free!
I got to choose any stamp set that I wanted from the Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalogue because I won the So Shelli Creative Challenge with this scrapbook page. So, because I love scrapbooking so much, I chose an alphabet set, Jumbo Outline Alpha, to use on my pages. It's something different from me because it's an Outline set, so for the Birthday Girl title I stamped it once straight onto my page and then coloured it in with Watercolour Crayons, then I stamped it once on patterned paper and cut out the letters. I love it!
For the rest of the page, I used my Short and Sweet stamp set for the accents, Seeing Spots and Polka Dot to make the background, and some Berry Bliss Designer Paper (retiring soon!)
