SSS This Is The Life Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!


Hi everyone! Welcome to my stop on the Simon Says Stamp "This is the Life" Blog Hop!

"This is the Life" is a fun and summery release full of stamps, dies and stencils! You can see the entire collection HERE.

To start things off, I have the More Sketchy Banners Stamps which go with our original Sketchy Banner Dies. We've updated our greetings so you can have MORE!


I've paired up my greeting with the Ice Cream Cone Parade Die… because everyone likes ice cream when they're feeling down... right?


The Diamond Circle stencil went so well with the pattern paper and adds great texture for a white on white background.

Next up is one of my favorite stamp set with several dies. This is Road Trip!


The stamp set has everything you need for summer fun and vacation cards. 
Don't forget your luggage!


I've shot a video of how to make my first card, and a little explanation of the second. Enjoy!


GIVEAWAY


As a special gift from Simons Says Stamp, each blog on the hop is giving away a prize pack.  Be sure to leave a comment on this post for a chance to win!
