We Wish You a Merry Christmas

Materials: paper - Basic Grey; stamps - Fancy Pants & Autumn Leaves, ink - VersaFine by Tsukeniko and Distress ink by Ranger; library pocket and tag die by Quickutz.

I was definately loving the big stamps by Fancy Pants and wanted to use them for this layout that I did a couple of years ago when I was teaching at Cherished Scrapbooks in Mississauga. I love to torture my students by having them stamp and then cut out elements for their page. LOL The end result I think is worth it.

For the Birds!

Materials: paper - Basic Grey Bittersweet, Bazzil cardstock; dies - Quickutz; stamps - Cornish Heritage & Autumn Leaves; inks - Ranger's Archival and Distress ink.

I was definitely inspired by this release of dies by Quickutz. Finally something NOT cute and more my style. With Valentine's Day around the corner and Bittersweet in my hot little hands I had a clear direction of what to do for February's Layout of the Month. I am loving the big background dies by Cornish Heritage even though I sometimes have difficulty getting a perfect impression. As usual no pictures yet but hopefully someday. :-)
