Stamp of Approval: Lovely Notes Collection Blog Hop

Hello fellow stamping addicts!  Today is day one of our three days of sneak peeks for our newest Stamp of Approval box... the LOVELY NOTES COLLECTION.

WHAT IS STAMP OF APPROVAL?  Stamp of Approval is a collection of fun products (stamps and dies) that work fabulously together plus they will also work incredibly well with supplies you already own.  Not only do you get a box full of goodies but you get a printable PDF packed full of cool projects and the detailed instructions on how to make them yourself!  The collections are released quarterly and sell out extremely quickly. To be the first to know when they go for sale, make sure you are on the wait list. You’ll get the link to purchase one day before the collection goes for sale publicly.

WHEN CAN I PURCHASE ONE?  The "Lovely Notes Collection" goes on sale on Wednesday July 13th.  If you are a member of the StampNation community you will get your email with the shopping link at 9:00am EST.  All other emails on the wait list will get their shopping link at 10:00am EST.  The entire collection is retailed at $97 US (plus shipping) but this release's box contains over $125 US of product!  WOWSERS!

Now let's take a gander at some projects made using ONLY the stamps and dies within the Lovely Notes box of goodies...

Here's one featuring the luxurious back ground stamp called "Lovely Lattice"by Catherine Pooler Designs...

A little close up...

This card highlights a wide variety of stamps from the "Lovely Flowers" stamp set and their accompanying dies, "Lovely Flowers & Banners Dies"...

Look at that shimmer...

For this card I featured a hand cut masking technique adding some flowers and the sweet little butterfly from our "Butterfly Notes" stamp collection...

A cute little bow from the "Wonderful Wreath" stamp set adds that perfect finishing touch...

Here's one last little sneak peek of some of the projects that can be found in the included PDF...


WIN IT BEFORE YOU CAN BUY IT!

YOU can WIN a box for yourself!!!  We are giving away THREE boxes... yes, three boxes - one a day during our blog hops!  All you have to do is leave a comment on each of the designer's blogs listed below for your chance to WIN!
