Stamp of Approval Blog Hop


Welcome to the Stamp of Approval Blog Hop.  Today myself and some of my favorite designers are sharing cards using the Stamp of Approval Young at Heart Collection!  The Stamp of Approval is an exclusive collection of stamps, dies and accessories hand picked by Catherine Pooler.

The Stamp of Approval Young at Heart Collection will be released soon, very soon, TOMORROW in fact!!  By the looks of the Wait List, it's going to sell out quickly.  This is a limited collection that will only be available until they are sold out, so make sure that you are on the Wait List to be notified when it is available.  StampNation members that are on the Wait List will be notified first (a little perk of being a member!) then the rest of the Wait List will be contacted!

I've been creating with the SOA Young at Heart Collection for the past couple of weeks.  I'm thrilled that I finally get to share my creations.


Here you are getting a peek at the Harleen stencil, Young at Heart stamp set and Birthday Journal Card dies.  I have said it before, I'll say it again...you will never NEED another birthday stamp set EVER if you purchase this collection.  I'm on a mission lately to make masculine cards and this collection totally fits the bill.  Just about every card I've made is perfect for guys.


It's time to start hopping along now!

Make sure to leave a comment on each blog because TWO lucky commenters will win a Stamp of Approval Young at Heart Collection of their own.   The more times you comment, the more chances you will have of to win! (If the winner has already purchased a box, they will be refunded!)

You've got until Thursday at 9:00AM EST to get those comments in. The winner will be announced on Catherine Pooler's blog!  Good luck and happy hopping!
