The Perfect Reason Stamp of Approval Blog Hop Day 1

09:00



Hi Crafters,
I am taking part in a blog hop as a guest designer for the Catherine Pooler Perfect Reason Collection! If you have never heard of this, it is a collection of stamps and dies (and sometimes something extra) that you can buy at a great price before the products are available on the market. You get a PDF file with tons of ideas to inspire you. This collection is sold to the waitlist though, so be sure to sign up!


Want to get on the wait list? Click here! You will sign up for an email notification as to when the kit is available (February 8th) and you can shop through that link and grab a collection for yourself! Hurry though, they sell out very quickly!



Want to win a collection? One winner will be chosen at random from each day's comments and announced on February 9 on my blog. The winners will win their box and if they already bought it, they will be refunded.


I created the fabulous peacock card above in my video tutorial today. I used some of the fabulous Catherine Pooler inks in my video, if you want to go shopping, click this link and if it your first time purchase, you will get 15% off!

This card shows off the awesome stencil that comes in the kit as well as some of the new stamps! 

Next up is Emily Leiphart!

Blog Hop List:
