post-it down on Mushroom Lane

Good morning, the mornings are starting to get darker here despite the temperatures still soaring in the 90's

I have something new to share today, last month I found out I had made the Riley and Company design team and was sent some amazing stamps to work with. As of the 1st of August they released a new stamp collection called Mushroom Lane. These are adorable little mushroom houses and buildings and of course I couldn't wait to grab my markers and get coloring.

Isn't the Polkadot House just the cutest??? The rest of the collection include a church, library, school house, post office, fire station and other dwellings there is even a pool. If you are into adult coloring they are also available in coloring books:

Each month we are challenged to do a project as well as cards after racking my brains and coming up blank a friend suggested I make a post-it note holder. I thought it a great idea and used a tutorial from StampArtic which you can fine here

This shows that the stamps are not just for card making and you can use them in all aspects of your crafting

Riley & Company are of course known for the little moose called Riley and his pals of which some others have been released this month so watch my blog for these.
Of course Funny Bones are part of the collection and I have some great sentiments coming your your way!

There is also a Riley & Company blog where you can find all the details about the new release and see other inspiration made by my teamies so why not go check it out!
