Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

Monthly Archives: June 2010

One of the fun things about going to Canada is the opportunity to shop at some different scrapbook and stamp stores! There are different items that catch your eye and of course, some great finds.

I was recently introduced to My Stamp Box through the Preferred Partner program at P K Glitz. They are a clear stamp company with neat designs and great storage. Each set comes in a cd case with a sticker of the designs included – everything all in one, done!

A recent find in a Canadian store was this stamp mfg because they are Canadian! I haven’t seen them in any of the stores by me yet, so it was indeed a happy day when I saw the stamps. I had been wanting “A Tree for all Seasons” since I saw some samples on their blog. Stampin’ Up! had a similar set that I never got for one reason or another before it was retired. Win-win!

I participated in a Big Summer 50 Inchie swap on Rubber Stamp Chat! The swap was no more than 5 of the same design and any theme. One extra for the hostess was all that was required plus postage. Cool eh?

I embossed many of them and used alcohol inks for many backgrounds. It was fun and I can’t wait to get 50 back!

of a layout is what you’ll see today! The challenge was to use no patterned paper and ric rac. Hmmmm, yes, that IS a challenge, no patterned paper???

I rose to the occasion and used some cool Prism textured paper from my stash that I really LOVE. Seriously it’s too bad Prism closed their doors. Anyway, it was the perfect backdrop for the snowy pictures I had for this page. I can’t show you the whole thing, but the part I will show you is a fun part of the page.

I die cut the letters from foam using my Big Shot Express – yes, it’s the electric one – that I totally love. I covered them with Ranger Stickles Icicles which is basically the chunky glitter glue ones. The snowflakes in the background are from using a Heidi Swapp mask and DTP white ink – another neat look for snow. And a new border punch that could double as flowers or snowflakes.

Trust me in that the ric rac is at the bottom of the page – 3 strands of it actually – attached with staples. 🙂
