Pretty Cute Stamps - May New Release Blog Hop!

Thanks so much for joining us for the May 2015 New Release Blog Hop, where we are all sharing projects featuring the new stamps this month that are now available in the Pretty Cute Stamps Store.

If you came from the Pretty Cute Stamps blog, you are in the right place. If you just stumbled across this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit the Pretty Cute Stamps Blog

For my project for the hop, I've used the Currently stamp set to create a pocket style scrapbook page, along with the Celebrate Today and Any Better Than This sets!

I loved these pics of my girls reading bedtime stories together! Since these were taken Erica has given up her soother and her habit of having to rub a piece of fabric while she sucked on it. It's so cute to look back on her holding Amie's sleeve here. One of those things you never think you'd miss...  I used some diecuts from Ruby Rocket and Maggie Holmes and did some paper piecing with the stamped hearts to add to my photos and journaling cards.

I love the sentiments included in the Currently set!! I used them to stamp directly on my photos as well as my journaling cards. These would be perfect in a Project Life page or on a traditional page to document so many things!

I cut patterned papers into 3x4 journaling cards and rounded my edges before stamping them and adding diecuts.

For my 4x6 journaling card I stamped the border from the Celebrate Today stamp set and coloured it in with Distress Markers. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Any Better Than This stamp set on cardstock, sponged it with Distress Ink and sprinkled it with water to get the droplet effect before layering it on my card.

I premade a bunch of journaling cards so I could grab them quickly when I was doing a scrapbook page!

Here is the featured New Release I used today:
