January PTI Blog Hop


It's time for Papertrey's monthly Blog Hop!!  I'm so excited that the challenge for this month was a simple one.  We were to use a stamp set or stamp that has not seen ink yet.  I chose two stamps from All Booked Up.



When I first bought this set two of my favorite stamps in it were this book and this sentiment.  I cannot believe it took me all these months to actually use them.  I chose to keep everything clean and simple (don't I always?).  I'll keep this short since you all are hopping:)





All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated

Stamps:  All Booked Up
Paper:  Berry Sorbet, True Black, Stampers Select White
Ink:  black, berry sorbet, ripe avocado
Accessories:  Simply Chartruese saddle stitch ribbon, corner rounder, copic markersR32 & YG95
