{PREVIEW} April/May 2016 Stamp Club Set - BORN TO ROAM

Next week we'll be welcoming April, the start of a new quarter -- how fast the months have flown by! With the new month comes a new stamp club set: BORN TO ROAM.

BORN TO ROAM is a 5" by 7" stamp set featuring 8 images and 9 word art style sentiments. It's a travel-themed set that's perfect for creating not just cards but also ATCs, journal pages, scrapbook layouts, and more.

The images showcase my hand-drawn/sketchy style and the sentiments reflect my love for grunge and typography. This set was a year in the making. Early last year, I had sketched the stack of suitcases and camera and then promptly let them sit in my "working illustrations" folder (which literally has hundreds of sketches waiting for me to finish) because I didn't know exactly what I was going to do with them yet. Then in early January, I took a look at the folder and I began thinking of what set I could create with my camera and suitcases drawings. A travel set came to mind. And so when I had a few hours to myself (meaning, in the wee hours of the morning when my baby was asleep) I did a few more images. There were 3 other drawings that didn't make it into the set because of space :o) 

You'll soon see the STAMPlorations girls feature this set in their spotlight projects. 

BORN TO ROAM will be available to non-stamp club subscribers starting April 8. But right now, it's available to current stamp club subscribers.

Want this stamp set now at a great price with a couple of ARTplorations stencils of your choice and free shipping? Just sign up for the stamp club here. Stamp club subscribers get to enjoy lots of perks :o)

By the way, we are adding a new perk in April -- you'll get a preview of this new perk on Tuesday, March 29. Also the stamp club subscription price will increase on April 15, so if you've been thinking of joining, now's the best time because you'll be locked in at the current price. Plus, we will be introducing a couple of stamp club plans -- these new plans won't have the same perks as the ones we offer in our current premium plan but you can bet that they'll be perfect for budget-conscious crafters.

If you're already a stamp club subscriber, thanks so much for your support! If your subscription is set to renew sometime later this month (or it has already renewed), you can pick Born to Roam instead of the current set, Sketchy Alphabet -- it's up to you!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Spammers have been in full force lately so I had to turn comment moderation on. We love hearing from fellow crafters (not spammers), so your comment will be approved as soon as possible. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with us :o)
