Chic Tags stamps + Clear Snap inks

Hi!  All week long on the Chic Tags blog and the Clear Snap blog we have been cross promoting products!  These inks are so awesome to work with… I have been reminded to pull out my stamps more often.  I love the look of stamping on a layout, but sometimes I forget about them! Here are two 8.5x11 layouts that I made:

 This first layout, I used some water colors and a paint brush to make some round circles of color.  I didn't worry about size really.  Once the water colors had dried, I took my black Clear Snap ink and stamped the US stamp over top of the color.

This second layout uses a bunch of different stamps.  The Mix'd Media ink takes a little longer to dry so I put some clear embossing powder on top of the Morning Sunshine stamp and heated it.

I really enjoyed working with these inks… Check both the Clear Snap blog and the Chic Tags blog from the beginning of the week for more stamping inspiration!

January highlights

Hello... today I have my Everyday Life Documented spread on the Come On Get Crafty blog.  I have decided to change things up a little bit to make this a no stress kind of project for me.  I am going to document highlights from the month rather than each week.  And I have even decided to change up the size.  These pages are altered Project Life Style A page protectors.   They now measure about 10 x12.  I have just sliced off the last column of pockets and then run the page through my sewing machine.

I am hoping this helps make this a stress-free project to keep up with for the year for me.  Are you playing along this year with some type of everyday documenting?

On one of our many days off this January, we took a trip for some frozen yogurt!  What could be better than to eat some frozen yogurt in the frozen temperatures?!  My picture had so many colors in it, so I turned it to black and white so I could focus on the pink, red and white on my layout.  Check out the Pretty Little Studio blog to read more.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Rosy

Hi there.  I have a layout today that I made using the February Paper Camellia kit.  Oh, how I loved the goodies in this one!  Check out the Paper Camellia blog for more details on this layout.  I broke out the modeling paste to give my background some texture.

oh, what fun!

I have not been a good blogger lately.  I am far, far behind with sharing layouts.  One day I will get back on track.  Maybe not now, but soon.  For the meantime, here is a layout from the December Paper Camellia kit. 

 I love the Crate Paper patterned papers in the Bundled Up line.
