PSA Stamp Camp - Past and Present Designer Spring Blog Hop

Welcome to the PSA Past and Present Designer Spring Blog Hop! -  Being an alumnus Design Team Member - Libby asked if I'd like to join in on the festivities and, of course, I said YES!  It's a great time to get excited about spring coming - the snow here in New England is finally melting away and the crocus and daffodils are poking out of the ground!

You should start the hop at the PSA Stamp Camp.  If you came here from Anthonette Chavez Blog you are in the right place!

Well, spring brings to mind a lot of things- warmer days, flowers, new beginnings and WEDDINGS!

I used a stamp from a sweet wedding set called Kiss Me Now on my card.  The little bridal couple is front and center on this card - nestled inside alternating layers of cream and white cardstock of Spellbinders Marvelous Squares die cuts.  I added some purple Tiny Twinkles to the flowers on her head piece and bouquet, and his bow tie - just a touch of color and bling!
Inside I stamped one of the sentiments in this set - a sweet and simple message for the new couple.
I wove a beige satin ribbon through two of the layers - tying it in a little bow next to the Bride and Groom.

And, of course - there is a prize to be won on this blog hop!!! The grand prize of 1 custom stamp, 3 Peel & Stick stamp sets, 2 notecards, 1 alignment tool, 1 black ink, 1 2-color ink, and free shipping to the winner.   Value of the package is $150.   You can enter to win by going to PSA Stamp Camp 

Now off you go to the next designer on the hop -  Regina Mangum - lets go see what spring inspiration she has for us!

Some Exciting News!


I'm thrilled to announce that I have been chosen to be a member of the newly created PSA Stamp Camp Design Team! You can read the announcement here on the stamp camp blog, and read more about PSA Essentials Peel & Stick stamps here.

I find myself on a team with a couple of my blogging buddies - Jennfer and Carly - as well as many new acquaintances. Libby is still announcing all the members over at her blog.

Here are the projects I submitted as my application for the design team and they were posted on the Stamp Camp Blog on October 5th to celebrate World's Teacher Day.

I made these magnets stored in a little tin using the set PSA - Super Star. The circles are mounted to a magnet sheet (I used my Krylon Machine with the magnet/laminate cartridge) so these can be used to hold those 'ever so special' school papers that come home every day on your fridge for all to see!
I even stamped on the twill I adhered around the box. The tin is from Papertrey Ink.
For my second teacher project I decorated a purchased First Aid kit that I got at the Dollar Store.
I used the PSA set Hello Kitty - School Days for the image - the heart circle framing is from the PSA set - UBU Dress Up. I used my Brother Label maker for the sentiments, added some papers to cover the label and tied a bow!

Here's what came in my little kit. Perfect for teacher to have on hand for all those little 'boo boos' that happen during the school day.

My last project was decorating a purchased note pad. I got this on sale at Staples for $1.oo (!) It already had all the M&M's printed on the cover.


Again - I used the PSA Hello Kitty School Days set. (the sentiment is Papertrey Ink)

So there you have it - some easy, fun gifts for teacher!
You can buy PSA stamps on line or at stores near you .


Thanks for stopping by today - I hope you are having Columbus Day off tomorrow - I do (Yippee!) - and I know there will be some extra stamping going on in my craft room!!! How about you???
