New card technique, for me ;)

I still consider myself inexperienced in the card making craft. I am always amazed at the talent of so many of the ladies creations I see on the Splitcoast Stampers message board. There is one technique I have seen so many do that I have always wanted to try. So, this weekend I gave it a try.

Below, is my first try at paper piecing using a stamped image. I used one of my new My Favorite Things stamp sets. I cut the umbrella out, colored it with my Prisma pencils. I also covered it with diamond glaze and sprinkled very fine glitter on it to add a touch of bling. Once it dried I used pop up dots to give a 3-d effect.

The next one, I used the same stamps but used patterned paper for the umbrella.

I hope you enjoy!


My 365 project

It has been awhile since I have posted... But, I have been busy keeping up with my scrapbook goal I made this year. I have a goal to complete 365 scrapbook pages this year and so far I have completed 60 pages!! I am sharing a few that I have finished in the last few days. Most of them are made using supplies from kits! I love kits! They save so much time because a lot of them have everything you need to create 4 - 6 layouts and everything co-ordinates.

I finally used my new electronic die cut machine and created the title and flower border used on the layout below called Silly Girls

I hope you enjoy these pages! As you can see, most of the time I am a make simple scrapbook layouts. Most of these pages were created in 15 -20 min. However, sometimes I may spend 1 - 2 hrs on a layout that may have lots of embellishments.
Have a good day!
