Paris Album

It is the Whimsy Stamps July Rubber Release Day 5, we are showing you some of our creations using the new stamps that are available instore now!

 I knew as soon as I spotted these amazing vintage style transportation stamps (vintage transportation) that I wanted to make a mini album for our upcoming trip to Paris.
I also used the Adventure Mini Postage Stamps and on the front page here also used the Into the Farm Background stamp and the Good life tickets which were from the June release.
 The album is by Basic Grey, the papers are mostly Colorbok for backing with the rest being part of the Simple Stories 'destinations' kit that I used for my last travel album.  I am completely hooked on the Simple Stories papers now and can't wait for the new release they are showing at CHA!
 Can't wait to get the photographs to go in here!


 The journey quote stamp is by Rubber Stampede, I picked it up in a yard sale a few weeks back!
and a quick card I whipped up using the Touch of Elegance stamps again.
Whimsy are having a blog hop on Wednesday to celebrate the launch of all these stamps, remember though, they are already for sale in the Whimsy Online Store and also through retailers!
***********
On a sad note, I have decided the time is right to step down from the Whimsy Stamps DT, for the past 2 1/2 years I have thoroughly enjoyed creating with their amazing stamps, it wasn't an easy decision but because I want to concentrate on scrapbooking more than cardmaking for the next little while I felt I wouldn't be doing justice to the stamps or to the team.  I know there will be some of the stamps that will be perfect for my layouts so I will still be keeping a close eye on all those future releases and I can assure you I will still be telling you all how fabulous they are.  
My last Whimsy Blog Hop will be this Wednesday for the July release when I have one last project to show. 
Hope to see you then, thanks for dropping by!
