Clear Mount Blocks

I must admit that I absolutely LOVE the new clear mount blocks and stamps! I think our blocks are far superior to any others that I have seen. I know some people like the ones that have the grid on them, but since we have some pretty great grid paper, I just see the need for markings on my blocks. And, besides that, if they did have a grid you could not use them for this very cool gift idea......

I saw these used this way on someone else's blog (sorry, I don't remember whose - I visit a ton of them everyday) and I had to try it. I used the "E" block for this. I attached Bashful Blue Satin Ribbon around the edge with Mini Glue Dots. Then I layered Chocolate Chip 1/4-inch Grosgrain Ribbon in the center of the BB Ribbon. At the top, I used a piece of each and formed a bow-like double loop and then wrapped a short piece of each around the center to hold the loops in place. I attached it to the center of the "frame" with a couple of Mini Glue Dots. Then I cut my photo (isn't my great-nephew just the cutest!!!!!) to fit the block and attached it on the back side with a Mini Glue Dot in each corner. You can't even see the dots :) What a quick and easy gift!!! Just shows that Stampin' Up is so much more than just making cards and scrapbooking. 'Til next time....

Happy Stamping,


Remember to get your mammogram!
