Hello Houses

Remember When…Friday Feature

Happy Friday Peeps!


For this week’s Friday Feature at AnnaBelle Stamps, the Belles are using the newly released stamp set Remember When. Andrea has discounted this set by 20% over the weekend.

This week I have made a set a mini note cards – 6 in total. They measure approximately 10.5cm by 7.5cm. My idea for this card came from the VERY talented Angeline Yong and her card here. She is a master at layered stamping, so I decided to give it a go in two different colour schemes.

Celebrate set

Celebrate - pink

Celebrate - purple

And I even made a matching carry bag for the set which my 3.5 year old just adores! Little girls and their handbags!

Celebrate bag


Stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps Remember When stamp set
