Scrapbook Layout (Elements of Style - Stamp Set )

This is a beautiful stamp set, it's called Elements of Style. I thought it would go perfect for a layout of my wedding photos! I did a 12x12 scrapbook page using Regal Rose colored texture paper and Old Olive smooth card stock. Our wedding colors were pink and green so I wanted to stick to that theme. The quote says Life is a matter of moments. I love that saying and it is so perfect for so many photos.

Jumbo Paper Clip Book Markers

These are so cute! Make these book markers out of the Stampin' Up! Extra Large Scallop Punch and the Large Circle Punch. I used a Flower for all Seasons stamp set then I filled it in with Stampin Write Markers. Use the Jumbo paper clips then attach tape over the paper clip to hold it to the bottom scallop, put Stampin' Up! dimensionals to attach the other scallop. Make sure the two scallops are lined up. Have fun! A set of these would be perfect as a teacher appreciation gift!

How to Apply Ink to your Clear Mount Stamp Video

I have some new customers that have never stamped before so I thought I would make a quick video to show how to apply ink to your stamp and stamp an image.

The set I'm using in this video is called Punch Bunch. It's called this because you can order coordinating punches for this stamp set. After you stamped your image you can punch them out, how easy is that!

You can get this stamp set for free during Stampin' Up! Sale.a.bration promotion! Just spend $50 and receive it for FREE!

This is my first video so please forgive I'm a little nervous. Thanks for watching!!

Tilda and Edwin Card Class

My Copics marker class was today. I colored three cards in 3hrs, let me tell you it was hard! I would have done better doing 2 cards taking my time. I found that the color pencil technique is a lot easier to blend but do like the vibrant coloring of the markers. My hats off to you! All you Maggie lovers out there it is harder then it looks. This was my first time coloring with Copics and with a little practice I'm sure it will get easier. You can see I got tired by the third card for there is some visible mistakes.
Thanks for looking!

My First Tilda Cards

Hi everyone, I took my class Saturday to learn how to color Tilda with color pencils. This is the first time shading and blending since high school art class. I did not know you could blend color pencils with Gansol which is just mineral spirits. The Gamsol take all the lines away and smooths it out like magic. I am posting a pic of the card and then a close up of the Tilda. We were to make all three cards within this one class, I had to take the third one home to work on. I can't work that fast! I was there for three and a half hours! It was fun and I learned something new! Next week I will be taking the class to color with copic markers. I have to post the others in a new post it won't let me load more pics??

Tilda is a little girl so cute looking. My first Tilda stamp has a cute bonnet hat with a rose on it and she is sitting wearing a darling dress with Maryjane shoes and socks. 
I'm so excited to make my first Tilda card! I will be posting the cards I make from the class. The first class is being taught using color pencils and the second with Copic markers.
