New Technique Tuesday!

Technique Tuesday snuck in one more stamp release just in time for the holidays!

This is a money holder card using the new Santa Says stamps and fairly new Pull Tab die.

The card measures 3 1/2" x 7" and is sealed up on all 4 sides so the pull tab is kind of important!  I used patterned paper from a 6" x 6" mini deck on a cardstock base because I don't have very much holiday patterned paper in the 12 x 12 size to make the whole thing from patterned paper.  But I have a lot of mini decks.

So here it is in action

Just pull the tab.  The perforations are very clean through both layers.  Squeeze the sides of the card and out comes the cash.

The perfect gift for everyone!

Technique Tuesday September Memory Keeper's Studio


Today I've got a layout made with the September Memory Keeper's Studio stamps and Fresh Cut Studio dies from Technique Tuesday.

The sets are called Picture Perfect.  I really love the font!

And check out the markings on the frame die.

You can check out some more great projects here on the Technique Tuesday blog.

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!
