Stampin’ Up: Crafting Forever Stamp Set Review

How “Crafting Forever” Became A Part of My Life + a Giveaway

My crafting began when I was young with simple coloring, until the day I drove my father crazy. See I was a mere 16 years old and grounded, I was beyond bored and began to drive my father crazy. I was such a nightmare that despite being grounded I was told to go to the craft store and “buy a hobby”. My budget was my imagination and desire, and I was nothing if not overwhelmed.

After about an hour I chose a paint-by-number and a latch-hook kit, which I did finish and with those seeds, the love of crafting was born. I have been addicted ever since, and I can not imagine my life without the crafts.

When I saw the stamp set Crafting Forever Rubber Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up I saw reminders of those first crafts that began the crafting fire inside of me.

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.
