Challenge #2: Date Stamp

Raise your hand if you own at least one date stamp.

How about several date stamps?

Ummm...a bucket of date stamps? (Raising my hand here)

I don't know how it happened!  Honest!  One day I thought, boy, it would be nice to have a date stamp...and apparently they breed or something!  True story!

Challenge #2:  
Use a date stamp in an interesting way.

Did we stump you?  We've got your back!  Show them what you've got, counterfeiters!

I've used an already dated page from a library book to cover slide mounts.

Check out my blog for the complete layout.

doesn't have a date stamp, but has found a free on-line font that will imitate a date stamp. 
She's currently on a search for the missing photo. We hope she finds it.

used her forged map paper to create a dye heavy page

Lynnette used her date stamp in a BIG way to commemorate a milestone anniversary.  Learn more on her blog HERE.

To make Mr. Linky a little easier for us to use, please type your name and then a description of what you are linking (ie: kit, mini challenge, ect).

We also have a Flicker group, if you don't have a blog, but would like to share your creativity with us!  CKC Blog Flicker Group

If you take a peek at our side bar <<<<<<<<  you will see links to our Facebook and Pinterest, as well.  We hope to see you hanging out at ALL of those places.
We also have a new twist on our Follower Blog Hop for this year!  I hope you like it!

End of the Month Blog Hop:
On the 24th of each month we offer a blog hop opportunity to all of our followers!  A chance for you to show off a special project made with your counterfeit kit for that month.

Here is how it will work:
Your Blog Hop Project may be from any of the 3 challenges we offer throughout the month.
Your project must be something new that you have not shown before and only post for the hop.

To be a part of our blog hop:
1.  E-mail us your name/blog address/promise to participate at  BY THE 18th!  (No late requests will be able to join this time due to the work it takes for us to get it put together.)

2.  You will receive  an e-mail from us by the 20th with a list of the hop participants.

3.  You will need to schedule your own blog post showing your project based on this challenge and links to the person after you in the hop.

4.  All Blog Hop posts will need to be scheduled to go live on the 24th at 12:00 A.M. Mountain Standard Time (Arizona)


  1. Add me to your raised hands. I have a few but they hardly ever get used even though I know the stamps would be a great addition to just about any page. Terrific challenge idea! Hopefully, I'll get back to my scraproom today,

  2. Raising my hand here too! I agree they breed I'm not sure how many I'm up to right now but got a couple for Christmas that I'm gonna have to use :)

  3. I think I might have one or two - guess I'll go and find them. I can feel a layout coming on!
