No seriously, have you? If you are on this wonderful Polly Blog Hop, I’m guessing you have. I hate to gush, but I really can’t help myself. Six months ago, when Ruth came to me and asked if I would come on board as a Polly designer, I had no hesitation in saying yes. As a web designer I thought surely my skills would just transfer across… umm … no. There was a lot to be learned about designing physical products and the day the proofs arrived, I cried. I am SO proud of these three stamp sets and I find myself going back to them over and over again.

Click on any set to get a better look. At the end of the design process, hands down Backwoods Christmas was my favorite set.  But now that I have had a chance to play with them, it’s a hard call. I recently completed Week 40 using the ‘Birds of a Feather’ set and Dear Lizzy’s Polka Dot Party mini kit:

On the first page, the cute little bird house stamp and ‘The little chicks are’ stamp are both from the birds of a feather set. It worked out so well because the top card looked so unbalanced compared to all the other cards in the top row. I could have chosen to use watercolors to colour it in, but the black and white tied in nicely with the midnight cards. This is by far one of my favorite layouts for this year.

As I am sure my lovely blog hop partners have shown you – my stamps aren’t just for Project Life. I used the Bow from Backwoods Christmas to create tags for my Christmas Presents.

Or you could even create your own BBQ invites just like me! I did tell you – I use them on everything! 

I didn’t have watercolors on hand so I just watered down some of my mists to colour in the BBQ stamp and paint on the grass. It really could not have been any easier.

And now for your chance to get a hold of one of my stamp sets for free! Yay for a giveaway:
