Technique Tuesday Summer Release Blog Hop


It's been awhile since the Technique Tuesday Stamping Techs got together for a blog hop.  Today we are featuring stamps from the most recent Summer Release.

I used a stamp from Family Flair

These seals are so great for cards, scrapbook pages, or pocket page embellishments.

This is a short hop, but we are each giving away some stamps!

Just leave a comment for a chance to win Here & Now Flair.  Comments will be open until 9/20 and then the winner will be drawn.

There are a few more stops, and each one has a giveaway!






Thanks for stopping by.

Technique Tuesday Memory Keepers Studio August


Today I've got a 2 page Project Life layout made with the August goodies from Technique Tuesday's new stamp and die clubs, Memory Keepers Studio and Fresh Cut Studio.

We went to Virginia back in March for one of my daughter's sporting events and I had so many pictures I just put them aside.  But now here they are!  Pocket page layouts are so perfect when you have a lot of photos.

Here is the August Memory Keepers stamp set, Going Places

And the Fresh Cut Studio Going Places dies

Besides these I used some Thickers from an older Studio Calico kit, the Becky Higgins Childhood Mini Project Life kit, and a bunch of other stamps and dies from Technique Tuesday.

Here is the left side

And a closeup of the cards

For the card on the left above I used the Geotag die and stamps from a fairly new set, Best Place.  Then for the journaling card I used This Arrow Card die and the camera die from Going Places.

Here is the right side

For the card with the photo taken in the pool I used the Home Circle Card die.

And here is a step out of how I like to use the Story Card dies overtop of cards from the Core kits.

So there you have it!

Do you still have trip photos to scrap?  Get those kids back in school and get to work!

CFC134 Tic Tac Toe

Hello!  There is a now CAS-ual Fridays challenge up today.  The ever popular Tic Tac Toe.

I chose the left vertical row and used chevrons, houndstooth, and dots on my card.

The patterned papers are from Pebbles, I've got a Studio Calico veneer, and a sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Rad stamp set.

If you haven't been over to the CAS-ual Fridays blog there is an announcement.  This is the last challenge of 2014.  We're taking a break.  There is a prize for the challenge and something extra being offered at each of the Girl Fridays blogs.

We're each giving away a $20 GC to CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!  Leave a comment here for a chance at my GC, then head over to the other Girl Friday's blogs for a chance at theirs.  And please play along with this last challenge of the year!
