Capture the Good Father's Day Card

Hands down my favourite stamp set from the new catalogue is Tami White's million dollar stamp set - Capture the Good. I love the camera, the greetings just everything about it. I received it with my order early this week and knew I had to use it for today's Facebook live. Because it's Father's Day weekend I thought it would be the perfect set to use to create a Father's Day card.

I created a simple water-colour background for the card and added my favourite - splatters. Check out how it all comes together in the video.

Have a creative day!

How to Create a Simple Bookmark

I have a fun project for you today - a book mark using the ADORABLE Over the Moon stamp set. We had a team shoe box swap at the beginning of the month and one of the projects was a bookmark. It was so simple to create, I wanted to recreate it using my current favourite stamp set.

All of the images in this set are adorable but I especially like this one. She just looks so content daydreaming.

I filmed a video sharing the original bookmark, how to get 4 of these out of 1 sheet of 8-1/2" x 11" yardstick and then I share another way that you can use this idea.

By simply flipping this over, you can create a pocket for a gift card!

If you love these sweet images, you'll definitely love this months class in the mail. You'll find all the details here.

Available June 10th to 16th.

Have a creative day!

Multi Photo Scrapbook Layout

One of the things that I find when I'm looking for scrapbook inspiration is that there are so many layouts with just a photo or two on a page. Don't get me wrong I do that a lot because I love a lot of 'white space' on my pages. And you can such beautiful things with all the 'extras' on a layout. But there are times when I have a number of photos that I want included on a spread.

This layout is one of them. I wanted to document a LOAD (layout a day) challenge I had participated in back in February. I had 28 photos of the layouts that I created over the course of the month. But narrowed it down to 9 that I wanted to include on a 2-page spread. An additional obstacle was that the pages were going into a 6"x8" album. So I decided to print my photos 2" x 2" and create pockets for a few of the photos.

The Follow Your Art Suite was the perfect suite to document these photos. I love a white background for my layouts but thought it needed just a bit of color behind the photos. So I took my crushed curry ink pad and just swiped it across the background and then added a bit of splatter.

To create the little pockets I used the envelope punch board (retired) and cut my dsp to 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" and then my 1st score line is at 1 7/8" then I just followed the instructions on the board. It made these cute 2" x 2" pockets that I could tuck the extra photos in.

If you would love more ideas on how to incorporate multiple photos on a scrapbook layout, watch for the next class in my Let's Get Series to be released later this month. Be sure that you are on my mailing list so you get all the info when it's released.

Have a creative day!
