Bite Me Photopolymer for Mojo Monday

Bite Me

Hello!

I just received the new Bite Me Photopolymer Stamp Set and couldn’t wait to break it out and show you all!  Warning! The spiders look VERY realistic! My daughter totally freaked out when she saw this card!  (She is obviously terrified of them!)  I don’t love them but really wanted that cat stamp.  Have you tried the photopolymer stamp sets yet?  I have purchased just about all of them so far and really love them.  The best part is how easy it is to layer stamps on top of other stamps, like the spider on the web in my card.  There is no need to use the stamp-a-ma-jig since the stamp is completely transparent.  You can see exactly how much ink is on your stamp and where you are stamping it.  This makes it so easy and lots of fun with no frustrations.

I am entering this card into the Mojo Monday 317 Challenge which features either a round or square card.  This card started with a card base in Pumpkin Pie, measuring 5 1/4″ square.  The 5″x 2.5″ Basic Gray and Black pieces of cardstock were laid down and Pumpkin Pie 1/8″ ribbon placed across the seam.  Halloween Bash is  great Halloween stamp set and even though it inked up unevenly, I really thought it added to the holiday feeling.  Framelits made the circles and window frame super-fast and easy. I added a little silver to make the cat’s eyes with a blender pen and Pumpkin Pie candy dots are the perfect touch!

It’s All in the Details

Tip of the Day:  Photopolymer Stamp Sets are lots of fun so give them a try!  Just make sure you clean your stamps right after you use them to avoid the ink staining the stamp.

So, I hope you like my card today!  If you did, would you please leave me a comment?  I would love to know what kind of weather you are expecting on Thursday?  We are expecting rain so our little trick-or-treaters will be ringing doorbells with costumes all covered up with rain gear!  We don’t get many Halloweens with warm, dry weather so we are used to it, I think!  I hope you have a great day!  Till next time,

Keep calm and craft on!

“Million & One” Scrapbook Pages to go!

Zemanta Related Posts ThumbnailHello!

When I saw this sentiment in the Million & One Stamp Set I fell in love with the font.  And it is perfect for my daughter’s scrapbook page.  I have fallen behind in my kids’ scrapbooks – lots of excuses but I have decided that it is time to get them caught up!  So I hope you don’t mind me posting one once in a while.

My daughter laughed when she saw this page, since she left those little frilly girl days behind a few years ago.  But I remember the little 3 year old who would only wear dresses and the little girl whose clothes had to be all floral patterns.  I love those memories of her and wouldn’t trade them for anything in this world!  That is what this page is all about for me.  Maybe it isn’t capturing her at 15 but it certainly is capturing “my little girl.”  She will understand one day.

It’s All in the Details

  • Stamp Set: Million & One, Secret Garden, Papillon Potpourri, Flowering Flourishes, ABC-123 Sketch Alphabet & Numbers
  • Paper: Blushing Bride, Basic Gray, Wisteria Wonder

  • Cool Tools: Petite Pennants Builder Punch, Elegant Butterfly Punch, Boho Blossoms Punch, Secret Garden Framelits, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Blender Pen

This scrapbook page went together very easily, mainly because of my favorite tools – punches and framelits.  I love them because they really make crafts easier.  What memories do you need to journal? Scrapbooks, no matter what size you choose to make, are wonderful gifts for the holidays! Anyone would appreciate the thoughtful gift of days gone by. I have so few memories of my own childhood because there were so few moments captured and wanted my children to have a better memory of their own. I am so happy every time I see my kids pull their scrapbooks off the shelf to show their friends.  They don’t even mind me taking pictures of them (most of the time)!

Stampin’ Up! has great scrapbooking products in their Holiday Mini Catalog that will make the job so easy and FAST! I hope you will consider making an album, little or big, for someone you love. They will really be happy you did!  If there is anything I can do to help you get started, please feel free to contact me.  I have been scrapbooking for 16 years now and would love to help.  Until then,

Keep calm and craft on!
