September Stamp of the Month Team Blog Hop

Welcome September!
And welcome from Gretchen's blog
It's time for the Stamp of the Month blog hop
by the Pineapple Paper Artists!

September's stamp set is 
S1409 Family Is Forever
There are 7 stamps in this set and I've used them all.
Can you spot them on my layout?

X7186B Pathfinding Paper Packet
X5770 Glacier cardstock
1388 Colonial White cardstock
Z2101 Autumn Terracotta stamp pad
Z2641 Glacier stamp pad
Z2137 Olive stamp pad
Z2111 Chocolate stamp pad
Z1151 3-D Foam Tape
Z2060 Thin 3-D Foam Tape
Z1816 Durables Artisan Studs

pattern: Reflections Bottom Border - Four In A Row

pattern: Reflections Sidebar Understated

I used our new Thin 3-D Foam Tape, as well as the regular 3-D Foam Tape under my fussy cut leaves. LOVE IT! I don't know if you can tell from the photo, but it really gives the tree leaves a neat multi-dimensional look! I also think the thin tape will be great for mailed cards, so that the "pop" is still there, but the height is reduced.

Now on to Cheryl's blog

Last of Chalk It Up for a While

I've been featuring the Chalk It Up Paper Packet 
at my events this month, 
and as we head into September 
with the Scaredy Cat papers in the spotlight,
I thought I would post a few last samples of Chalk It Up!

pattern: Imagine Medley

X7184B Chalk It Up Paper Packet 
X7184C Chalk It Up Complements

I used the Complements I had left over for a few cute cards to congratulate or encourage my favorite students!
