Happy National Scrapbooking Day!


It's here! It's here! Happy National Scrapbooking Day! It was this day last year that I launched my blog. I had joined in the fun on My Pink Stamper that day, and I needed a place to post all of my challenges. Little did I know what this would turn into. I cannot believe that I have over 800 followers and 150 subscribers! That is just crazy! I want to thank each and every one of you for all of your support and wonderful comments. You really make my day over and over. :-) If you haven't had a chance yet, be sure to click here and leave a comment if you are interested in joining the Cricut Circle for 3 months for free. Provo Craft gave me a VERY generous giveaway!

Now, on to this cute tag. It is cut at 4 1/2" from Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More. Emma, at My Creative Time, gave away this special Bonus Stamp to the people who first ordered from her latest release. I just couldn't let today pass without using it. I die cut some balsa wood with a Papertrey Ink die, and then stamped right onto it. Because balsa wood is very soft, and I wanted to pop it up, I die cut the shape with cardstock also, and glued them together. The sentiment at the bottom of the tag is another one from My Creative Time, from her "Paper Princess" set.

Click here for ordering information for all of Emma's stamps. Also, I want to share the latest My Creative Time set, "Race for a Cure". I love how versatile this set is, because that ribbon can used be for all sorts of causes. I also love how Emma is donating $2 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for every set that she sells.
