Pair-A-Phrase Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Pair-A-Phrase blog hop. Thanks for stopping by! If you have arrived here from Carla Ironside's blog then you are on the right track. Take a peek at what I have done with this fun set and then keep on hoppin'!


I first saw this set at convention and the ohhs and ahhs in a room full of consultants were priceless. Then they told us that this stamp set was priceless too! We could hardly believe our (Minnie Mouse) ears! But it's true you can get this special double set that has been created especially for National Stamping Month by CTMH absolutely FREE with any $75 purchase between August 15th and September 30th!!

Here are all of the images on this "double D" set.
Can you see the possibilities like I can? I can definitely see myself pulling out this adorable set for lots and lots of occasions throughout the entire year! When I heard we were going to do this blog hop I could barely contain myself because I was just waiting for an excuse to play with this fun set. I had a weekend retreat last weekend so I spent some of my time creating mini cards. At first I thought I would just make a set of six 3"x3" cards, not too difficult I thought. But as I finished each one I saw several more of the images that were speaking to me. In the end I ended up making a set of 12 mini cards using all of the images and many of the sentiments as well. I also used my new Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge for some of the fun shapes as well as the butterfly card itself (love those cut out butterflies). I had a blast with this set and I am sure you will love it too.

 I created this display for my open house on Friday night to display all of my cards.
