Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - April: Typed Note

Welcome to the April Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month’s set is Typed Note, a set of 19 stamps.

Let’s begin!

Once again my swap assignment was challenging. I mean, a typewriter and beach-themed paper? How in the world do you combine those two things?

Luckily the other part of my assignment dictated that I could create any kind of project I wished. I knew I had some frames that needed to be used, and I loved the friendship sentiment in the stamp set, so I set out to use that combination as well.

I had one more dilemma, and that was that I wasn’t sure I liked black with the color palette of Seaside. Nonetheless, I had somewhat of an idea of what I wanted to do all along. It took a little trial and error, but in the end I was happy with the final result. 

Here is what I used. All products are Close to My Heart except those marked with an *:

S1504 Typed Note stamp set
