Branching Out and Follow your Dreams

Today, the Design Team and I have put together an inspirational blog hop for you featuring two brand new stamp sets released last Thursday night.

Introducing Branching Out by Melanie Muenchinger and
Follow Your Dreams by Theresa Momber.


I have had SO much fun stamping with these two stamp sets.

Branching Out by Melanie Muenchinger is a fabulous set that features several different frames that coordinate with many of the Spellbinders Nestabilities dies that you may already have in your collection. (Love that!)






And Follow your Dreams by Theresa Momber is full of beautifully hand-drawn images and inspiration greeting and quotes that are perfect for SO many card making and scrapbooking projects.




To see a video featuring these two stamp sets and more photos of the projects I created above, click here: Branching Out and Follow your Dreams Video.

How would you like to win one of these beautiful sets?
Today we are giving away 2 of each of these stamp sets!
All you have to do is leave a comment on each of the blogs in today's blog hop. We will randomly choose 4 names from all the comments and those winners can choose any stamp set valued at up to $23.95!

Ready to get inspired?
Check out the beautiful projects created for you by our design team!
