August 2015 Stamp of the Month "Framed"

I don't know about you, but I love a stamp set that multi-tasks, is cute and practical, and is crop weekend ready any time of the year. "Framed" has all those things going on and it's already been working hard in my craft room .... cards, tags, wine bottle gift-wrappers, and more!
Available only until August 31st.

Along with the new Stamp of the Month, I'm featuring a sampling of papers, complements, and accessories that are due to retire on August 31st.

These 4x4 cards were so fun to create! I was able to dig into my stash and evaluate what I still have and what I need to replenish before it all goes away. {I call this "controlled hoarding"}  I love that we get advanced warning on what items are retiring. No surprises or being bummed out when suddenly I can't find something to finish a project.

Eleven lovely Paper Collections due to retire August 31st

Wanderful ~ Jackson ~ Blossom

Snowhaven ~ Yuletide Carol

Scaredy Cat ~ Pathfinding

Confetti Wishes ~ Chalk It Up

Seaside ~ Brushed

For a complete list of retiring products, visit my website:

All retiring items are available While Supplies Last!

And remember .... the August Stamp of the Month is yours for only $5.00
with a qualifying $50 purchase.

Thanks for hopping with the Rose Blossoms!

You are now off to be inspired by Barbara .... who's been on a real creative roll lately!

  1. Oh boy, do I like this idea!! This was smart, and they turned out so cute!!

  2. These are fabulous! And a what a great way to use up "leftovers". I love how this shows so many of our papers.

  3. What a great idea! These cards are adorable and they all work perfectly with that stamp set. I love it!

  4. Love these. Can I just say ... Great minds! I love that our thoughts were similar. "Controlled hoarding" - lol!

    1. Totally have to keep that controlled hoarding phrase in mind!

  5. Hi Marg! What a fabulous way to show off this set of versatile stamps as well as the wonderful papers still available!

  6. This is such a great idea! You always do such great work!

  7. Cute! That little scooter card is my favourite :o)

  8. So the cards are as cute as all get out but what a fantastic way to showcase the retiring paper collections AND how versatile the stamp set is at the same time. And you're right... I love that about Close to my Heart too... that there's some warning within the old catalog year to snatch up favorites before the new catalog goes live! Well done!

  9. These are fantastic Marg! What a great hoard....uh...STASH-busting idea!

  10. By the way, I'll be lifting this, just so you know.... 😉

  11. I adore these cards, Marg! Each one is absolutely perfect! I love the variety, the colors, and, just, well, everything! xoxo
