Sparkle Creations 1st Anniversary Release & Hop!!!

Hello and Welcome to the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps 1st Anniversary Hop! Not only are we here to help Sparkle celebrate a year of SCRS, but we are also officially releasing 4 new SCRS images this month -- Backpack Oliver, Bookworm Ruby, Hula Lucy and Ukelele Josh.. They are ALL available in the store NOW! But wait, there's more.. we are also releasing 2 new Karber Rubber Stamps -- Rainbow Leslie and Reading Millie!

It's hard to believe that it's been over a year since I got a little email from Sparkle telling me that she was opening up her own stamp store and asking me if I would join along in her journey! It's been a lot of fun and I'm so honored to be a part of this celebration! Congrats, Sparkle and Brent, and Happy, Happy 1st Anniversary to SCRS!!

We have assembled an all-star lineup consisting of our Current Design Team, DT Alumni and Guest Designers. If you happened here by chance and would like to start from the beginning, the hop will begin at the SCRS blog -- please see the complete list below.

What's a hop without prizes? We've hidden TEN single stamp prizes along the way and one lucky winner will win the ENTIRE July release! All you need to do is leave some love at every stop along the hop.. You have until 11:59 PM EST on Sunday to leave comments for a chance to win! Winners will be announced on the SCRS blog on Monday. Good luck to all and Happy Hopping!

Thanks SO much for joining us!

  1. What a great use of the stamp! I haven't used a stamp on a scrapbook layout before; this is encouraging me to do so! I like how you left the left side white so that the stamp isn't lost. This will be a great scrapbook for your daughter to flip through when she's older!
