Wednesday- Emboss

Embossing is stamping and then sprinkling emboss powder on and heating so it turns to a raised image..it's fun but messy...I don't usually like it...but now I can emboss an outlined image and then I get to color it!
Took these cats embossed, cut out, colored and put on a card....I kinda like embossing now!!!
Have a happy Wednesday!!!

Monday: Touchy card

I guess this counts as touchy by emotions, my anniversary card to my hubby of 28 years! And touchy that you have to touch it and shake it because there are little hearts and more in the shaker portion!!
Happy Monday!!!

Creative Scrapbooker Magazine

Wow, how fun is this?? I was featured in Creative Scrapbooker magazine's blog!

They are a real scrapbook magazine that has been in publish for 11 years now, a real meaty magazine, you remember the kind that you can actually flip the pages and feel the creativity in your hands...you can see the pictures big and bright, not on a little screen of your ipad and phone, as you can tell, I am a big fan of real books and magazines, not a fan of reading all my info on a little electronic screen......anyway, back to my news...

They asked for people to send in where they create, so having a wonderful place to create, I sent my photos in...and TA DA....they picked me, yeah!!! I love my craft room....

Here is the link to this wonderful publication and the blog post I am featured in, make sure to check out the whole site and subscribe if you like to have a real magazine you can hold in your hands and keep for future ideas:

Square is the new cool!

Monday's challenge is Square...so I decided to share my square block I made to take on my scrapbooking trips, it holds my raffle tickets. It has fun photos of me and my sister and Patti from Scrappin-Escapes, also the letter J on top has a clip to hold tickets and name tags, etc...it is very square and very cool!!
To make your own, just paint a block of wood, you can get scrap pieces for free or very cheap at hardware stores, then make tiny scrapbook pages and adhere to the dried block. I found the metal letters with clips at my local craft store. The clip is on the top of the J, sorry it does not show in the photo. Cool little project and they make nice gifts as well!
