Hello everyone!

I'm so excited to be here to share a new little project created using some of the NEWEST Sweet Stamp Shop sets available in the store now.  As you know, last month there were several new sets released and I have had the honor of playing with a few of them and have enjoyed joining the Guest Design Team in sharing some creative possibilities with you.  I've had so much fun playing with two particular sets (Nesting Dolls and Gears Backgrounder).

If you didn't have a chance to stop by to check out my earlier posts, you can hop back over to my entries during the reveal days.  You can check out some of my SWEET creations here:  Sweet Release Day 1, Sweet Release Day 2.

Today, I get to share an additional project with you and my fellow Sweet Stamp Shop blog readers!

This week is a very special week for my school.  We're continuing to celebrate Dr. Seuss' Birthday (March 1) and we're carrying the Read Across America celebrations into this week too.  ALL WEEK LONG my school is holding special reading-related events.  Today is "Fox in Socks" day and I get to wear some of my wackiest socks.  I decided that I would give my students some fun little bookmarks to mark the pages of their books.
I wanted to create some simple bookmarks that were not lumpy and bumpy so they could be placed inside a book without fear of bending or warping the pages.  The GEARS Backgrounder was the PERFECT set for this theme.

I also decided to add a little handwritten sentiment to continue the theme during our classroom reading time (READING IS THINKING).  I created several different color themes for these bookmarks.  Colorbox Chalk ink works so well with photopolymer stamps like these and since I have almost every color of the rainbow, it was easy to duplicate the bookmark design in a multitude of colors.
I hope you're inspired by this cute little project, remember....READ READ READ...Get your wheel's a turnin'.
PS... I'm smack-dab in the middle of a very sweet video-share project using the nesting dolls set so make sure to stop by soon to check it out!  In the meantime, head over to the Sweet Stamp Shop blog to check out get your sweet tooth fix... You won't regret it!
