Sweet Stamp Shop August Release & One Year Anniversary Celebration: Day 4



Welcome to Day 4 of Sweet Stamp Shop's August release & One Year Anniversary celebration! If you came from the Sweet Stamp Shop blog, you're on the right track! 

Today's stamp set is called "Cherry Blossoms." Now if you are a fan of the Paper Made Bakery kit club, than this stamp set probably looks familiar to you! It was in one of their monthly kits over the summer and now will be available for purchase in the SSS store. 


While I was in Wal-Mart one day buying school supplies for my daughter (she starts pre-school in a few weeks... eek!) I ran across this REALLY cute clipboard in the clearance aisle for $1.50! When I put it in my cart, I had no idea what I would make with it, but I thought the least I could do is use it while helping my daughter with her writing skills. 

When I got home I thought BINGO! I won't alter it like a normal clipboard... I will break out my Opaque White Staz-On ink and STAMP on this!!! That way there aren't really any dimensional objects for papers to get stuck on. 

By the way... I couldn't get a great photo, so yes, there is a glare and you can see my reflection... the clipboard is translucent... and very shiny!!!


I love Cherry Blossoms. I always admire the photos in the spring of them in Washington DC. So so pretty! I'm so glad Nicole made this stamp set! Since I can't always go see the Cherry Blossoms up close and in person... I can at least stamp them all over the place! ;-)

Now hop right along today and see what the fabulous Stephanie has in store for you!

If you get lost along the way, here's the hop order for today!
