Mama Elephant January Stampede


Hey everyone!  We're mixing it up a bit this month over at Mama Elephant!  Instead of the usual schedule, Kryssi has been showing peeks of each set all week and the new release is on the website today!  Yeah, I said TODAY, like NOW!  Go ahead, I'll wait:)  

You back?  Great!  To kick off the release, we're stampeding!!  {Saying that always makes me want to yell "Yahoo!"}  We're so lucky to have the amazing Betsy Veldman and Lea Lawson joining us this stampede.  We're also joined by our first Guest Designer, Leigh Penner!  Leigh was chosen from the first Mama Elephant Challenge (see the details here)!  No more chit chat, let's get to stampedin'!  


Today I'm using the adorable Type It set.  This set has an vintage typewriter (is that redundant? lol!) and a bunch of matching sentiment stamps, typewriter keys, and a notebook page stamp (perfect size for Project Life journaling).  I had a little something different in mind for the sentiment so I printed it off on the computer and then stamped the little paper image over it.  {Free font called Traveling Typewriter found at dafont.com}  The sheet of paper is popped up just a little with foam tape on the top edge only.  


Just added a bit of sequin bling and some washi and there you have it!  So sweet:)  The next stop on this stampede is the lovely and talented Mariana Grigsby !  Here's the blog order if you get lost:)

JJ Bolton (you are here)

While you're stampeding, don't forget to leave comments along the way!  Mama Elephant is giving away 3 gift certificates (chosen at random from the collective blogs in the stampede).  Winners will be announced on the ME blog on January 21st.  There will also be one surprise giveaway on the Mama Elephant Facebook page!  

Come back tomorrow for the start of the DT stamp highlights!  Can't wait to show you the sets:)  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj
