Stampin’ Up: Seaside Shore Stamp Set Review

Stampin’ Up: Seaside Shore Clear-Mount Stamp Set Review + Giveaway

A couple of weeks ago I took a walk to the beach, and discovered that it is about 1400 steps from my house. As I took the walk up the hill that leads to the beach, I wondered if I would see any whales, dolphins or sand art. As I crested the peak of the hill, I began to smell the familiar smell of ocean air, and my steps increased. Once I reached the coast, I was met with blue skies, white water and so many surfers surfing.

As I walked home, I was struck by how lucky I was that I am able to witness this beauty with a simple walk. I want to share the sights, sounds and the feeling of the ocean, and the best way is with cards and letters.

It was on that day of 1400 steps that I took the new stamp set Seaside Shore Wood-Mounted Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up to get some pictures of the coast. When I got home, I realized that with this stamps set I could tell the story of my walk.
