Stamping at the Community Center – All Squared Away Stamp Set/Bundle

November 17, 2021

Stamping with folks at our community center is a great way to pass a few afternoon hours once or twice a month.  We laugh.  We create.  We socialize.  We meet new friends.  And participants leave with two great cards to send to a friend.  Wouldn’t you smile if you got a hand-stamped, personal greeting card in the mail rather than another advertisement or bill?

The Floral Squares Dies and the accompanying All Squared Stamp set have intrigued me since I first saw them.  As is often the case, it did take me a long time to purchase the bundle (page 117 in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog) and actually create some cards.  I used them both in a monthly card swap I participated in and I decided to use that same (almost) card for one of our November Stamping at the Community Center cards.
