My birthday was last month and one of the presents my parents generously gifted me with was some stamps and goodies from Sweet Stamp Shop. Besides the planner stamps, I shared yesterday, they also got me two of the now discontinued On Cherry Street kits. There were a steal since, they were marked down to the price of the stamp set and basically everything else was free.
These are from the Magical Kit. Guess what? The crown stamp fit perfectly inside the crown wood veneer! The "This" stamp inside the circle. I am beyond excited to use these!
I'm loving the gems on the "Enjoy" card, plus the stars card, plus the magical frame...these are perfect for a holiday to that certain magical kingdom but also lots of other things and I love the colors.
The only downside I see to these kits is that the cards are printed on glossy paper. That makes it a little harder to write on them, without the ink smearing.
Besides the 3X4 cards in the previous pictures, you also get a few 4X6 for a very nicely rounded kit. Even at the full price of $15.95 it was priced very nicely, but of course, I liked the clearance price even better. These On Cherry Street kits were kind of an impulse addition to the order but I'm so glad I got them!
My parents also got me the Ahoy Kit, and while I liked the stamp set from the Magical kit, I love this one. The sentiments are one I can use over and over, such as Read This, Shopped Here, Ate This, etc. Plus how stinkin' cute are the watermelon slice and Popsicle with the smiley face, and you know arrows are always useful!
Here's a look at the bonus cut out 3X4, a die cut frame, and some of the 4X6 cards.
Isn't the Explore More card cute? I'm sure these will be popping up on my Project Life layouts next summer! These would also have been great to use when documenting our Disney Cruise, I may add a few pages in my son's First Year Album and if so, I will be using these there for sure.
And here are the 3X4 cards, ignore the rip on the shark Help Me card, my little guy was a little too excited to get a look at my scrappy goodies and tore it. No worries, I'll probably use one of the cute wood circles with an arrow stamped on it, to cover that right up!
I'm sorry to be sharing somethings that might not be available anymore, but as most of us are, I was excited to share my cool new things to play with! Plus, I'm hoping that in the future Sweet Stamp Shop might begin offering these again. I really like the configurations of the kits, and that the contents are being made in America.
