I have been using the Stamp of the Month, Limited Edition (S1109), since I first got it...It will have many purposes I can tell but this is how I used some of the stamps in this set this time:

I've stamped the journalling spot and added the little floral wisps from the Dreamin WOTG kit's exclusive stamp set...I've also used the new Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut out the paper on the chipboard title! Yeah!!! no more fussy cutting and sanding and time consuming work! 

Now this is the sketch I used for this layout and it happens to be the new Let's Scrap sketch for this week!

I have to say that I love this sketch...if you have some favourite paper collections that you only have a tiny bit of...this sketch is perfect for it! I've used a little paper and it's created a big effect with this sketch...give it a try yourself!

I used our new Trinity Alphabet set to stamp the 'let the' words and then I used the 'goodtimes' from the Stamp of the Month set...
