Kaboom! June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Are you ready to celebrate?  The June CTMH stamp of the month, Kaboom, is just what you need for all your patriotic celebrations!  (If you're already hopping, then you should have arrived here from Kathleen's blog.  You'll go to Maria's blog next.)

My first project is a fun "squash book" AKA an explosion mini album.  We had a blast making these at a recent class!  We started with three 8" squares of card stock to match the Jubilee paper pack: Cranberry, White Daisy, and Indian Corn Blue.  (Here's a link to directions to make your own.)
We used many of the stamps from the Kaboom stamp of the month with Cranberry, Honey, Indian Corn Blue, and Desert Sand.  I taught the ladies how to random stamp and the first and second generation stamping techniques.  Every stamper needs those in her toolbox!

The Art Philosophy CTMH Cricut cartridge coordinates with several of the stamped images in this set.
Check out Maria's Kaboom project next!  I have several more projects with this set that I'll be sharing this month, so come back often.  Thanks!  (If you happen to get lost along the way, come back here and click on the Blog Hop image, above, to go to a list of all the participants and their sites.  Thanks!)

I haven't made a squash book in forever! I will have to resurrect the project idea! Great project!
