You will love love Laci's kits from The Paper Passion!

Here are a few goodies I made with last months kit that sold out in a few days so get yours NOW!

First up is a fun bag of goodies...I LOVE love LOVE altering bags. These are just brown bags I get at Michaels for a a few bucks.

I thought the angle would work well on this card. I popped it up with some pop up dots.

And a the navy blue in the kit that Laci paired with the oranges and greens.  If you have ever read Shel Silverstein's "the Giving Tree" book than this layout is for you. I got this photo a few weeks ago at a wedding and it totally reminded me of that book.

Fun little trinkets, too!

Sweet Stamp Shop October Release!

Happy Tuesday! We are excited to be with you again for another SUPER FUN release! This is always, always my most favorite time of the month.

I have been a long long long long time Philadelphia Phillies phan fan. See? I can't help myself, LOL!  I grew up going to the Vet to see games with my dad. The Vet is long gone and now we have CitiBank Field that I now take my kids to. It's a long day, over a two hour drive but it is worth it. We have so much fun and, of course, we get to see the Phillie Phanatic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I wanted to be the Phillie Phanatic when I grew up. No joke. It's on my bucket list to dance with him on the dug out one day.

So this season, they have these Phanatic hats for sale at the park. And when I saw them, I said, "that is genius!" So how perfect is this stamp set called Chemistry for that memory????

So first up the close up of the light bulb. I also stamped directly on a label sticker instead of cardstock.

click on this image to see the journal strips a bit closer. They are all stamped sentiments from this set. 

I used the atom stamp and stamped directly on the wood veneer.

Cardstock is Core'dinations Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions.

A few things to remember: Final release day and reveal is the 25th. The new release deal is - the new stamps are $10!!!! YES ONLU 10 BUCKS!!!  (no code needed - they'll be marked down in the shop). Easy peasy!!!
Todays list is:

Stampendous Saturday!

Happy Saturday!  Today I used the Mumpkin stamp and some Stampendous Glitter along with some Core'dinations Cardstock in Orange and White (Core Essentials) and Black Magic. And I used some of my Glitter Silk Scraps from earlier this week for some photo corners. Don't be afraid to stamp on that textured cardstock!!!!!

I cut parts of the stamp set, used some FAB Stampendous Glitter as an extra accent and layered them with 3D foam adhesive.  He is so cute!!!

I embossed the little bat from LYB (their halloween line last year was my FAVE!) and added some May Arts Ribbon, too.

Stampendous & Core Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!  

If you are joining us for Stampendous and Core’dinations blog hop…Welcome!!! We had so much fun yesterday…I can’t wait to show you want I created for you today. 

So…today I wanted to show you a technique I used a lot. I am using the Pumpkenstein Cling Stamp. Sometimes there are parts of the stamp that I don’t necessarily want to use at a particular time. In this instance, I wanted to use googely eyes but the eyes from the Frankenstein were a little too big. They stuck out of the sides of the googley eyes. SO…I inked up the stamp and then wiped off the eyes with a paper towel.

Then I stamped the image. You can see a little bit shows up but that is okay because the eyes will cover it up. 

 And then Frank’s hair needed a pick me up so I added some Stampendous Glitter.

AND how much do you LOVE this purple Glitter Silk???? Check it out embossed! (Sigh) It’s gorgeous…one of my faves. And it really pops off of that Black Magic cardbase.

Here are the blogs for today. Have fun!!!!
