I've always wanted to try this.....

I've been playing in the scrapbook room quite a bit lately. In fact I started calling it my office because it sounds more important and not like I'm "playing." I have seen a lot of candles that people have stamped on but have never tried it. Today I did.

I must say I am happy with the results. I think I'll be buying some more candles! It was so easy you can learn how to here.

I just love this snowman stamp set from Close To My Heart called Snow Friends. You may purchase it here.

Art and Soul

Have you checked out the newest Art and Soul? It shows how to do tissue stamping which is an easy way to have multiple colors on one stamped image. You will also see some more ideas for using one of my favorite products, flip flaps! Finally, the Studio J tip is about how to group and resize objects. It's definitely worth checking out. Click here to watch.

There are so many talented Close To My Heart Consultants. I love looking at the consultants blog at all of their fantastic artwork. This weekend I made these two bows (original pattern by Jessica Crawford, I saw Chris Green's version) using Mistletoe and Topstitch paper. My husband was quick to point out that I can just buy bows but they just aren't the same. These turned out so pretty with the two sided paper, and how cool that your bow can match your card!

Happy Halloween

I made this cute card this morning before leaving for work. I used paper from the Hooligans Level 2 kit and the monster came from the stickease. I did add the googly eyes that are not CTMH but I can't resist. They are so cute! I made this for my 2 year old Godson but since I don't think he follows my blog I'm o.k. to post it.

B & T paper

Our pattern paper that is two sided is called B & T for background and texture paper. You can also make your own using stamps and a piece of cardstock. I just made a piece of volleyball paper. I'm not exactly sure how I'm going to use it yet but I have some ideas. Until then here it is ready for use! The opportunities are endless!

For 29.95 you get the Level 2 paper pack, a unique stamp set that can't be purchased any other way, embelishments and a layout guide. This is the layout that comes with the pack. I'll be posting more layouts when I get them done. This is from our first official family vacation in 1998.

I love Thanksgiving. I think it's so important to take time to be grateful for all our blessings. About 10 or 11 years ago I started using our table runner as a place for all of our Thankgsiving guests to write what they were thankful for. I loved this. We have now gone through 2 table runners and I don't know what to do with any more. The My Creations Journal is the perfect answer. Each year I will stamp the year and our guests can write what they are grateful for. It will last forever. I love that I have my parent's writing on our Thanksgiving table runner since they are no longer with us. I love having my kid's writing which was so large and cute. My daughter really was thankful for her dollhouse at one time! Come to this workshop and make this journal....

AND you will make this great gift idea!
This junior legal pad holder is a great gift for an office mate, teacher or yourself!We will make this one and you will be able to go home and make more!
