Stamp Review Crew: Lovely as a Tree Edition

 Hello Stampers! It's time for another round of inspiration from the Stamp Review Crew. This may be the first visit for many of you, as we were lucky enough to be picked to do a display board at convention this year and you may have seen that board while you were at convention. We would love it if you left a comment on this post letting us know that is how you found us, and what you think of our little project :)
This time, we are featuring the consummate old-but-still-current stamp set. Once upon a time, Shelli Gardner said (maybe jokingly) that Lovely as a Tree will never retire because it is consistently the best selling stamp set every year. I don't know it that still holds true, but I can say that it is a stamp set that just does not seem to lose it's appeal :) We thought it was the perfect set for us to feature on our display board. We had to make 40-50 projects, so we did feature a new stamp set too, and we will have a blog hop with that set so you can see those projects as well, but this time, we are going to show you all of the projects from the display board, and a few that there weren't room for, lol!


All but one of our crew owns this set. And you are about to see why :)

Stamp Review Crew: Life in the Forest Edition

 Now that summer is fully under way, I bet there are a lot of you who are spending more quality time with nature :) I know I will be soaking up as much outdoor fun as I can in the next few months before winter strikes again! This little gem of a stamp set will fit right in for some family fun, masculine projects, and whimsical mischief!
I have a feeling you will be seeing lots of Blendabilites used this round too. New toys with a hidden gem of a set, what more can you ask for?! Blendabilities are the new alcohol markers from Stampin' Up! that will be available soon.

        Stamp Review Crew: By the Tide Edition

        Welcome back friends! So glad you could join us again for more inspiration and fun. I must admit, the retirement list, and the fact that so many of the retiring sets sold out so quickly, caused us to change things up a bit on short notice. But I am telling you, this Crew doesn't mind being kept on their toes, and they will wow you with their nimble creativity!

        This set is not hard to work with. There are so many directions you can go with it. Nautical, beach, freshwater fishing, coastal towns, soft and feminine, bold and masculine, bright and fun! Let's see what treasures the Crew has in store!
