aug_kit_blog_hop Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp August Card kit Blog hop! You must be arriving here from  Laura‘s blog. So much inspiration and talent in this blog hop! If you want to start the blog hop from the beginning or got lost along the way make sure to visit the SimonSaysStamp blog here.

The August kit is awesome just like every other kit that has been released! No wonder they are getting sold out so quickly. Consider subscribing HERE if you haven’t already since it’s only $19.95. If you want one of the card kits without being a subscriber it will cost you $24.95 and they can’t guarantee to have one on stock. So hurry up!!

My favorite thing in August’s card kit? If I had to choose just one then it’s the stencil! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!  But have you seen the papers? the stamp set? the burlap flower? the flair badges?

CARD #1

Here is the first card I made for today. I used the stencil to create the background.
