Just Had to Share

I just had to share, this is my little man. I thought he looked adorable so I took a picture and thought I would share it with everyone. I should add that he only looks adorable, if any of you have ever been on the phone with me you know he requires all the attention and will bark uncontrolably until he gets it.

Stamp Camp

This is another card from the Flo Valley stamp camp. We made this one using the Pocket Silhouettes stamp set (it is on sale for 15% off right now). You can't actually see from the photo but the front of the card is actually folded in half so that when you open the card the image will actually be on the inside.


STAMPS: Pocket Silhouettes

INK: Baja Breeze

CARD STOCK: Baja Breeze, Whisper White & Baja Breeze Prints Designer Series Paper

Big Shot

So, tonight I have been playing with some of the new stuff I got from Stampin' Up! My niece's birthday is Tuesday and she absolutely loves purple. I made her a banner with her name on it for tomorrow so we can celebrate her birthday. I used my new BIG SHOT and I love it! This is one of the dies that will be an exclusive Stampin' Up! die called Pennant. I also used Sizzix Sherif Bigz Alphabet. The word "Celebrate came from the new wheel Celebration. I rolled the wheel in Craft ink and embosed it with iridescent ice embossing powder. When it gets hung up tomorrow I will take a picture of the whole banner. It spells out "Lauren".

Stamp Camp Project

We made this card at the last Flo Valley stamp camp. It was a new technique for some. We used Heat and Stick powder on the image. The way it works is you cover the entire image with Versa Mark ink and then sprinkle Heat and Stick powder over the top and heat with the embossing heat tool. The powder will become a liquid glue. Then sprinkle your Dazzling Diamonds over the top and heat again to set the glitter. Everyone also got to play with the brand new Scallop Edge Punch.

Stamp Set: Dreams du Jour

Ink: Old Olive

Card Stock: Rose Red, So Saffron, Old Olive & Very Vanilla

Acc: 5/8" Chocolate Chip grosgrain, Scallop Edge Punch & Linen Thread
