Here’s another fun idea that had its origins in the Llama Blog Hop! Speaking of which I hope you enjoyed that hop. I’m still returning to my fellow llamas blogs to find more inspiration and ideas. All the original hop posts are still accessible from this link – http://stampinllamas.blogspot.com/2011/09/doing-llama-hop.html
AND…we have another hop scheduled for October 22nd that will feature various holiday projects from Thanksgiving to Chinese New Years and any other holiday that enters our wild and wooly llama thoughts. So stay tuned for more llama fun and inspiration.
In my hop post here in addition to the birdhouse template and directions I shared yesterday I showed you what can be done with Stampin’ Up’s Fabulous Phrases stamp set and the birdhouses. As I started building more houses I needed more ideas for what other word or phrase I could use so I returned to the stamp set and discovered a fun new game.
Check this out…..
Wood Mount: #117002 $37.95 Clear Mount: #120501 $26.95
Whether you use them together or apart these words add a lot to any project.
How many phrases do you see? And here’s another hint….with selective inking you can create more words from what you see here.
Get your pen and pencil out and join in the fun then download my list (or just scroll down).
And here’s the Game Sheet all by itself:
Now that you’ve tried it here’s what I’ve come up with. Though I must admit…I’m still seeing new and fun bits every day the more I think about it.

Hope you enjoyed the game. I bet you’ll never look at a set of words the same way again! Bet this also makes this set seem much more reasonably priced too! Feel free to click on over to my online store and order your own set today! And if you come up with more phrases or words built from these I’d love to hear from you so I can expand my list!
Hugs and blessings my friends – Jean
