I made this card for this week’s challenge at the L3 blog http://www.studiol3.blogspot.com/
I used the new Unity Stamp Itty Bitty Songbird on the wrinkle free distress background. Made a rosette, and used clock numbers for the 25. You can find this stamp at my store! Click on the link at the bottom of this page.
Here is an altered mini book I made for the challenge at Studio L3 http://studiol3.blogspot.com/
Agate background technique on grungepaper. I made the journey tag with my metal alpha stamps, and made the chain and hung it from a brad. I used ribbons to tie the book, but also added hitch fasteners. The stamps are from Stampin Up! 2005
Here is a cute Matchbook candy favor. I saw a video on You Tube. It’s very easy, and so cute! I used an owl cling stamp that I have, and made them in a Fall theme. Here are the directions! Start with a 5 3/8″ x 1 3/4″ piece of cardstock. Score at 1 3/4″, 2 1/4″. Then score the other end at 3/4″. I used the large Creative Memories circle punch for the shapes. I think they are 1 1/4″ and 1 1/2″. Cut a small piece of printed paper the same width (1 3/4″) by 3/4″ and adhere to front. Adhere circles. You can staple the small flap at the bottom, or use a ribbon slot punch, and tie a knot with the ribbon to the front and back of the matchbook. Tape individually wrapped lifesavers to the inside!
Fall is quickly approaching, and I was inspired by the cool air to make this 6×6 page. I used Sizzix dies, and the map background stamp I sell at my store. Of course I distressed everything (my fav new technique!) You should check out Tim Holtz’s techniques. They are easy, and add dimension.http://www.timholtz.com/
As we pull out our long pants and sleeves, take time to create something to remind us of this beautiful season! Get those fingers dirty!!
I have made these cute little scrapbooks made from paper lunch bags! They are very easy to make and I have a link for the tutorial for the one at the top from youtube. It’s better than my version, because it is expandable. And of course the paper flowers that everyone is making these days! Hope this inspires some of you to try these out! They make great gifts!
