- 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.

Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge
With the new year comes a clean slate along with many resolutions. This month's blog hop challenge involves you challenging yourself to use a Papertrey stamp set that has yet to see ink or even one that might be collecting a little dust! Go through your stash and see what little used treasure it might hold. If you are in need of inspiration for your chosen set, feel free to utilize the gallery posted in the side bar of each set's sale page on our website, or go to the Previous Countdown page here on my blog where each set is organized by month of release. 2011 is the year where what's old is new again!
What a fun challenge. I am guilty of having a few stamps that have never seen ink. The Background Basics: Woodgrain is (now was) one of them. I love it when I see the cool cards people make with it but I couldn't quite figure it out. Until I forced the issue. The woodgrain is definitely a masculine set (in my opinion) so I wanted to girly it up. Pink cardstock can girly up anything right? I also used my new number dies, love them. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
