July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome everyone to the heat and humidity of summer!  At least that is what July brings to Tampa, FL.  This month we have over 40 consultants participating and you can find the list on Melinda's blog here.

If you have been hopping with us, then you have arrived from Sarah's blog here . This month's stamp set is S1407 Circus Alphabet. It contains a combination of 68 capital letters, lower case letter and punctuation.  Perfect for your whimsical layouts, 3D projects and cards.

Here is a video where Monica features this month's stamp set!

The beginning of summer also brings the end of the school year.  I always looked forward to the summer months because there are plenty of opportunities for taking pictures.  I created this layout to celebrate the end of the school year for my great niece Cambria.  When I was a child I loved Midway Park in WNY but I now realize as an adult, that it wasn't that great of an amusement park!  Here is a vintage picture of the park as it once was..

Here is the layout I created from Make It from Your Heart Volume 2 - Pattern 12.

You can find the Cricut Design Space file here.. As with all artists you may change or adapt the layout to suit your needs.

Now it is off to Sheila's blog here to see her terrific card.

Many of you know that I am a retired teacher who spent almost 40 years in public education.  

My passion is to teach not to make money.. so with that said, here is the first of two FREE files using the Cricut Design Space and the Explore for my workshop tonight.
