In the Spotlight at Stamplorations

Welcome to a very special Stamplorations post!

This June marks the 5th anniversary of Stamplorations and Shery has several surprises for you to celebrate.


To read up on all the details click on the image above to find the post. This month, instead of our regular challenges, we are having only one with the theme "CASE the STAMPgirls". All month long STAMPgirls get to be in the spotlight and pick 3 of their favourite projects as well as create a new project (or a few!).

For those of you who aren't sure about what CASEing is, we loosely take it to mean that you copy something from our projects in order to create your own. It can be the colour combination, the layout, a particular element.

You can CASE any project shown this month although, of course, I'm hoping that you will choose one of mine...
First, my 3 favourite Stamplorations projects:
Life is good Up with the larks

Click on the photos to open the related post to read the details on these makes.

Onto my new projects for this month.
