Fabulous Phrases – more goodies from the Llama Blog Hop!

Hi All,

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…..

Fabulous Phrases pg. 163 in the catalog

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).
