Magnifique Layout

If you came to my New Catalog Open House last Sunday, you were able to make this awesome layout! It is using our NEW Magnifique paper! Don't you just love it! The paper is so beautiful.

We stamped on the Colonial White in chocolate and used our waterbrush (1771 $9.25) dipped in our NEW Pacifica stamp pad and "painted". If you have never used our waterbrush, you need to give them a try. Just add water, get the brush tip a little wet and they can be used in a "puddle" of ink from your stamp pad.

You can even use these with our watercolor pencils. Just wipe the waterbrush on the pencil to pick up the color and start painting with it, OR you can color with your watercolor pencils and then take your waterbrush and brush over the colored area and it gives it a watercolor look. VERY COOL! Then to clean your waterbrush, simply "paint it" across your paper back and forth until you don't see color anymore. It's easy and way cool!

You can also see in this close up picture I added our NEW Mocha Opaques (Z1333 $2.95). They are self adhesive and make a GREAT addition to your pages or cards. They also come in Licorice (Z1335) and Pearl (Z1336). You get 108 of these in the package in 4 sizes. They give your pages a lot of bang for your buck!

4th of July Layout

Each year we invite a few people over to watch the fireworks from our deck. The golf course by our house puts on an amazing fireworks show and our deck just happens to face the RIGHT direction! YEA!
We also have a screened in deck so it makes watching the fireworks BUG FREE! lol
I used our Zippidee papers to make this layout. It was quick and easy and so cute.
I also used In the Month of July (C1417), Boom (B1354) stamp sets to create this layout.
It's time to get out your 4th of July pictures and our Zippidee kit and start creating!

Organize Your Patterns

Do you use our How To Books? If you have our How To Books (Cherish, Imagine, Reflections - all scrapbooking and Originals and Wishes - for card making) you know that there are patterns to print from the CD that is enclosed. What do you do with those patterns once you have them printed? You don't want to print them each and every time you need them. So what I have done is make a pocket and adhere it to the inside of the front (or back) cover. My pocket is just a large envelope that I cut off the top part and stuck it to the book. Now I have my patterns and don't need to reprint them each time I want them.

I also notate on the layout (in the book) that I have the pattern printed already. So then I know it is in my pocket in the front! How organized is that! And just in case you are wondering, we have a NEW How To Book coming out September 1st! Do you believe in Magic? I DO! And on September 1st, you will too!

In the month of August Stamp set

What a cute kid! And the layout is darn cute too! lol I used the In the Month of August stamp set (C1418 $18.95) and Cranberry, Honey and Black cardstock and ink. I used our Imagine How to Book and the layout was Swing Rhythm on page 113.
The strip of paper that has the stamped imagines on it is from our Grace kit (X7117B). (I am using what I have). It was the one with a honey scaly pattern. I just stamped on it with those stamps from In the month of August along with our Good Works (D1385 $22.95) Set. My favorite stamp in this set is the ruler! This layout was quick, easy and darn cute!
Ready to get out those school pictures from past years? Ok, maybe you are caught up...you will have to wait a few weeks to use this until you get your kids pictures back! LOL Either way, you HAVE TO HAVE this set!

In the month of August Stamp set

Are you loving our In the month of stamp sets? Here is my August Events Calendar card. This will go on that Events Calendar I keep talking about. You can recreate this on your own, or wait until the fall when I host an Events Calendar Workshop where you can make these.
I stamped the "back to school" circle in Garden Green, then I stamped it again in Honey on a scrap piece of cardstock. I cut out the bus and then popped it up. Quick and easy! Want to see a cute layout using this set? Stop back on August 6th to see it!
