award2stamp {new from TSOL!}

Welcome to July, and a new stamp set from The Stamps of Life! 
I am often forced to GASP when I see the sneak peek of the new stamps heading my way, each month, from TSOL.  This month was no different. . . and I instantly thought of all the award-winning moments in my family's life, and all the cute little projects I could make, to celebrate school achievements, special occasions, and even the simple every-day moments that could use a little blue ribbon treatment!  Plus, the circles make AWESOME flair, to use even without the ribbon.

Today I have a few cards to share with you, featuring these new great stamps! 
This first is a simple card featuring the little tiny ribbon. And I love this LITTLE "congratulations".  It makes the perfect finishing touch (as you'll see on ALL of my cards today!) 
(patterned paper is from Penny Black)
 I pulled out some oldie-but-a-goodie October Afternoon paper to put together this next card.  Oh - and have I mentioned the icing on the cake? Stephanie's zig zag circle Framelits, and banner stamp/Framelits dies coordinate PERFECTLY! This is going to make whipping up a whole BUNCH of banners easy peasy! (I'm envisioning some sort of classroom project for school next year!)

 And on this last card, I used the zig zag circle die again, but just grouped together some of the fun circle sentiments. (patterned paper is from Pebbles)
 Be sure to visit the TSOL gallery to see all of the designers' projects showcasing this new must-have stamp set! I definitely see this as a set I'll be turning to for projects again and again!  Thanks so much for stopping by today! Happy JULY!!!!! xoxo
