this is one of the best pieces of the whole collection- what we call the "build-able" stamps… they allow you to create borders, and all kinds of different combinations to create brilliant little elements…and they are cheap! only $ 6.99 (if you can find them-check here)
there are a total of 17 pieces… and they are just the most useable, versatile stamps ever! well, that was the whole point of the entire collection- just stuff that you could use and use and not be dictated by a specific color- and colorize it yourself. So i have started working with one of the albums in the collection- i'll share it later, but i am doing a little exercise with myself- i am calling it "30 days of Positive Thinking"… i know i have mentioned it before, i am kinda a 'cup 1/2 empty' type… So i am filling this album with all things POSITIVE!
i did some stamping and inking of bits and pieces that i will be putting in my album:
this is one of the single stamps- LOVE IT! i added a bit of color into the butterfly, and inked it all up! i am using the Crushed Olive and Victorian Velvet distress ink vibe for my book- it's also kinda the Apple Glimmer mist color with Pomegranate and Cherry Blossom..
this butterfly and banner are just SO useful! and well, i am in LOVE with the cake plate… could use that a million times and not be tired of it! SO, those are just a few little ideas… the list could go on and on! if you scroll back down through my 'ruffle darlings' feature, you will spot more of the stamps used on those projects…
yesterday my 30-days of Positive Thinking started… so i wanted to start out with one of my favorite scriptures… because i really do believe that all positivity comes from a whole-hearted trust in God! SO, i kicked it off with Proverbs 3:5, " Trust in the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding"
like i said, i'll talk more about the album later… OR, you could watch tomorrow night's LIVE WEBSHOW!! it's direct to you from Janet's house, and she'll be doing a most amazing project using this album… this is seriously, an awesome album because of all the creative inserts inside… this first page is a 5×7, and i stamped and inked the page, and then did the embellishments on the outside of the sheet protectors… i added glimmer mist to my ruffle darling, and to the tips of the flower darling. this is just the beginning!
ALSO WORTH MENTIONING: to you California girls… Wendy Senger (owner of Tattered Angels, and inventor of Glimmer mist), will be teaching at Scrapbook Island on the 16-17th of Oct. She will be teaching Glimmer Mist 101 and 201, using some of my products as well as all the new paints and chalkboard etc. it's SO inspiring to watch her at work! She will be at Scrapbooks Made Simple on Oct 23 all day doing the same 101 and 201… if you are in the area, you will LOVE it! acutally taking a Glimmer Misting class totally is a light-bulb moment!
