Happy Monday - Frosted paper collection WOTG


Today I'm sharing a scrapbook layout made with the new paper from FROSTED collection, a new set of papers released during the 2013 convention, for Fall and Winter Idea book.

This 2 page layout is an additional project that you can make from the FROSTED Workshop-on-the-go (WOTG) packet. Know that for each packet, there are supplies you can use for both featured and bonus projects that can be either cards or scrapbook pages.

The stamp set found in the packet is exclusively designed for WOTG and is not available for sale in separate. Think about using this stamp set for all your upcoming winter projects!

If you're not able to attend the live workshop with me, you may also consider purchasing this WOTG kit to create the projects in your own pace at home. There is the instruction/cutting guide for each WOTG to help you.

Happy Monday - are you scrapbooking today?

Friday note #2 - mini card "Happy Thanksgiving"

Sharing one of the samples I made for the Open House, using one of the newest stamp set named "Perfect Fit - Thanksgiving" found in the 2013 Autumn/Winter Idea Book.
I used the CRICUT Artiste to cut out the shape of the turkey and stamped on it. Finished the piece with distressing and sponging plus glitter glue.

The sentiment is also from the same stamp set.

Papers? You got it. It is the new Huntington - my new favorite for Autumn Fall Thanksgiving projects.

This is a simple to-do, 3" x 3" card  that can be used as gift card or a decor block for a page layout!

Love This card

We all need to express our love. For card maker, paper crafter or even scrapbooker, there are tons of possibilities to make this happen.

One of things I like is when I have the chance to say "I love this" with any given project. That's why this stamp set is one of my favorites now. It's created to go with the My Crush book, but it can surely fit anything else when it's time to say "love this".

You'll want this stamp set. To shop with me  - click here.
The cute paper? It's BABYCAKES. See it here.

A bird, a flower, a butterfly, flourish border, AMAZING, LOVE THIS!

Expressing Love to all the people we care and love,

Friday notes #1 - A little gift

Since it is the first Friday of the month, I'd like to start here and share few things about clear stamp and the art of stamping that I've seen and learned - for anybody who enjoys the fun of creating something and doesn't mind on getting inked fingers.

This cool card features one of the new Mini stamps from 2013 Fall Winter idea book, called "A little gift".
I used a brand new CTMH circle spin card as base and stamped the gift image as part of the background.  The gift in the spinning circle is done by stamping twice on both colored cardstock (sunset and buttercup) cut out in pieces, then glued together with 3D foam adhesive to give dimension.
The bottom of the card is filled with paper strips from Babycakes papers. these were punched out one by one with the new CTMH scallop border punch and put all together.

I stamped another gift image on the back of the spinning circle as well.

You can see the Babycakes papers in here.
You can see the scallop punch in here.
You can see the white circle spin cards and envelopes pack in here.

To order  this new stamp from my online shop, click here and for the Mini stamps, click here.

Happy stamping!
