Welcome to the Use Your Stamps Challenge

You are welcome to sign up any time during the month- however you must complete & post 3 projects this month to be entered in the drawing.

All stamp projects are welcome – layouts, cards, tags, canvas, other crafts- but you must enter 3 (three) projects to complete the challenge & you must have completed them in JUNE.

All projects MUST include something STAMPED using: acrylic, rubber, a carved potato, wine cork, metal, bubble wrap- ANYTHING you can “stamp” with onto a project counts. Basically- you put ink (or paint) on it then press it onto your project- it counts as being stamped. This includes heat embossing but not pressed embossing such as the Cuttlebug or BigShot, etc. UNLESS you have inked it & used it to “stamp” the ink onto your project.

PLEASE TELL ME WHAT YOU STAMPED on your project when you post as a photo sometimes makes it hard to tell.


Twist: stamp Numbers- or spell them out- it all works.
***Note- doing the twist gets your name entered twice into the drawing. But you must also complete 3 projects first for this to count.
PS: you only need to do the twist on 1 project to count as completing the twist
Don't forget to put that you did the twist & what it is when you post your project here or I will miss giving you credit

Those who complete 3 projects in JUNE 2018 will be entered into a random drawing. The winner will receive a stamp set with a value up to $17.95. The winner will be determined via Random.org. Invite your friends & dust off those stamps you keep meaning to use.

If we have 100 entries I'll do a second drawing for those who created & entered 4 or more projects in JUNE.

Hi Ro!
Thanks for the love...
in answer to your question:
"Did he know the ugly clown was there during the shot?"

No he did not...
My husband is really good at being sneaky and I was able to keep a straight face (barely!) during the shot. After I took it is when I finally started laughing and then he turned to see what I was laughing at and saw my husband. We all had a great laugh about it and loved the resulting photo!

Hi Ro!
TY so much for the love on my layouts!
You're always so inquisitive and I love that, but wish there was a way to answer your questions in the Gallery Comment thread and it alert you.
Since there isn't I'll answer them here -

For this Layout:

Project Life Week 21/Continued By Doreena

Your Question(s):
"Do we know what kind of snake your visitor was? Why would it have no fangs? Would that be cuz of the kind of snake it was or could they have broken off or maybe could someone have pulled them out? Not sure how your husband meant that"

My Answer:
We don't know the answer to either of those questions.. LOL
My husband said that "he looked like he had no fangs" because literally when he looked in his mouth he saw nothing!


For this Layout:

PL Week 22 /Pg 2 By Doreena


Your Question: "Not one for heights but I think a balloon fest would be fun... Have you ever gone up?"

My Answer: Not yet.
I too am afraid of heights but my husband wants to try it out so I am braving it for his birthday in August!
I think the multiple glasses of wine they'll be giving us before we go up will help, LOL


Thanks for taking such an interest in my layouts!
