CTMH March SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.  Whether you started here, or came from Jill's Blog...you are on the right path!

This month we are featuring S1203 Potential


This set reminds me of fancy stationary so I thought I'd do something a little different this month.

First I stamped a quick and easy monochromatic card.  Sometimes I don't send as many cards as I'd like to, simply because I make it so hard on myself.  I have to hand stamp it and it must be amazing... Well here's a great alternative.

I used Lagoon ink and I double stamped the saying so that it has a nice little shadow effect.  Can't decide if I like the sponging on the edges or not.


And why not create some fun stationary?  I used super heavyweight copy paper and cut it in half (8.5 x 5.5) to create some pretty stationary to use for a quick note to friends/team members.


I'm constantly sending little notes with paperwork at my day job.  Truth be told, I have a little Hello Kitty stamp I put on them.  I decided I'd shock people and be a little more mature with my elegant scroll notes. Haha.  I don't think they will be fooled.  Do you? (Size 3 x 5.5)




Next up on the hop is Judy.  I can't wait to see what she created.

Great idea for stationary!

Love your idea! This is such a great set for stationery! (And, I agree with you... we do make it so hard on ourselves by always trying to be so amazing. That's why my kid only has half of one scrapbook completed... and I rarely make more than 1 card a year (other than on our hop)! LOL)

Great idea for stationary! And I am guilty of same thing with my cards, but am really drawn to the simple cards too. Great job!
