Stampin' Addicts Retiring Sets Mega Hop 2010 - Enjoy Every Moment

Thank you for joining me today! You have found the Stampin' Addicts 2010 Retiring Sets Mega Hop! I'm stop 9 on the hop. You only have a few weeks left to grab the sets you see here, so don't delay! Call your Stampin' Up demo today! The blog hop will make a complete circle, so keep following the links to see all of the fabulous projects!

If you are following the hop, you just came from Sara's blog where she featured Best Wishes and More, a super-versatile set fit for just about any occasion! I love the stationery set she made! Isn't it so cute? A perfect gift for a house-warming gift, don't you think?

The set I'm featuring is Enjoy Every Moment. What I love so much about this set is how the pieces fit together and integrate to create multiple images. Did you know that the larger flower with the dot outline is a perfect fit around the dotted circle O on the Enjoy stamp? I've tried to layer the stamps in my projects for a variety of different looks. I'll be posting details this coming week about some of the projects and I'll show you the other page of that scrapbook layout. So be sure to add me to your favorites or to your blog reader and I'll see you later next week!

The first project was a card using this week's Mojo Monday sketch (#142). The enjoy stamp is quite large for a card, but there are several ways to add it as a focal point. On this card, I used my Stamp-a-majig and placed the letters in a "haphazard" fashion (Yeah, right! I stamped that piece four times!). I also subbed that pointy flower in for the dotted circle O. A quick rumpled flower (using the large flower in the Birds and Blooms Sizzlet set) and a clip from the clip assortment round this card out.

The second project is a case from the catalog and I made it this week to send to someone special. (Someone's having a BABY!!! But my lips are sealed. And see the gender-neutral colors? [Big happy smiles!]) The original card was on page 144 of the Idea Book and Catalog. The card is simple and shows that this "friendly" set has a lot of uses!


The final project is a scrapbook page. I used SCSC241 as a base and modified it a little. I used a lot of layering on this page to include some two-stampin' effects as well as popped images on top of images. I stamped the title in white craft ink and embossed using white embossing powder. A little piercing added a touch of detail. I can't wait for you to see the other page of this layout and hear the story behind it! Come back on Tuesday for the Blog Hop Deets!


I hope you have enjoyed my projects using this cute set. Before you head off to call your demonstrator to place your order, check out Holly's blog. You will definitely want to put Hoppy for you on your next order! I can't believe that that lily pad! So precious! Thank you for checking out the Stampin' Addicts blog hop. We'd love to see you on the website!
