I am Sarah, a stay at home mom of two wonderful, little boys. In my life before kids I was a fifth grade teacher. I now work with first year teachers, which I love. Creating is one of the ways I stay sane. I become very cranky if I have not stamped or scrapped in a while. Join me on this creative journey.
I came home from work today and there was a package from Melodie Hand over at Elemental Doodles. It is called Firecracker USA and you can check out the whole set here. This set comes with 22 stamps, I knew as soon as I saw it I wanted to make my own designer paper. Michelle Wooderson over at Mish Mash did this a while back and I really wanted to try it. (she even used a patriotic set as well) You can see her post here. I loaded up my block with 7 stamps and used Real Red ink, I then went back with the bitty stars and used Brilliant Blue ink. Finally I used the postage stamp and highlighted a few times. On the side I adhered red, white and blue ribbon and then attached chipboard stars and the sentiment onto chipboard as well. It is a bit busy (says my husband) but I think it is super festive. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
