To good to pass up....

If there is anyone who is still reading my little blog, I have to let you know (it's to good to pass up) it looks like has most of their patterned paper for  .10 cents a sheet. I had to pass this along. Head on over and take a look, I'm sure the paper will go fast at these rock bottom prices!


Teresa Collins will be doing a live chat at 8pm MST on the My Craft Channel facebook page. I'm going to "pop in" there and check out. Here is the latest layout I created with four of her latest CHA collections. 

I have to say that I love the detail in Teresa's acrylic stamps. All of the stamped images were the last thing I added to complete the design I wanted. I have finished many layouts and projects over the years wishing I would have added some stamped images. Being frustrated, I have discovered a little trick.
When I want to add a stamped image it's always helped that the image is acrylic, so you know exactly where the image will land, because I can see it through the acrylic block I'm using. I go ahead and put the stamp on my acrylic block and then I put the image over my layout where I want to add it. I then, eye-ball how far or what piece of the image I want to use. Then, I only ink that part of the stamp. To me that is how stamps become versatile, who says you have to use the whole image?
For the "cherish" stamp (in the first photo) I only used about 75% of the stamp. If I would have used the entire image it would have gone further off the page then I wanted. Hopefully, this will help you out the next time you're bummed because you would have liked to add a stamped image to your masterpiece.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're able to snag some fun paper!!!!
I'll be back this weekend!
