All you need is love -- and a sale!

Valentine's Day is just around the corner! To celebrate, Technique Junkies Valentines Day stamps are 20% off. There are 30 different designs or sets to choose from, including several BRAND NEW sets and stamps! The sets are already marked with 20% off -- just add them to your shopping cart. Make sure to use the bottom scroll bar to see all the way across the sets, too, I put quite a few on each line. (Note that no other discounts will be honored for these stamps.) Click HERE or copy and paste the URL:

The artwork above  uses one of those brand new stamps: All you need is love (#SD565). I used the Braided Paper Technique from the Designer Paper Perfection CD, too. I am teaching this technique a few times this year at various trade shows, too!

This sale ends on Valentines Day -- but hurry! You will want to get these stamps in hand so that you can send some paper love to those you care about.

On a personal note, I cannot believe how many months it has been since I have been able to post to this blog. With the purchase of Stamp Camp, continuing to work on Tutorials for  the Newsletter and CDs, the holidays and getting sick, my time is at a premium. I love it all, though, and cannot wait to show you what I have in store for the remainder of the year! Thanks for coming along for the ride.

Happy New Year!

Yup. One Hundred Tutorials. That is how many are found on the Technique Junkies CD 11 (2013 edition). It contains all the tutorials from October 2012 through August 2013, plus 10 bonus techniques. And this year I included a PICTURE Table of Contents so that you can visually see what is on the CD. A link to that is HERE:

Rounded Dimensional Petals

There is something very Zen about this card. I don't know what it is, it just feels like things are balanced. I live the touch of dimension that on the petals. It really is a pretty card to behold. 

It is called Dimensional Rounded Petals and it is one of the 45 tutorials on the Designer Paper Perfection CD from Technique Junkies that was released this week. The CD is $14.95, and can be ordered on this blog (in the corner), or through this page:

Hope you have a great day!

Blocked Backgrounds

I love the graphic look of the background stamp in the October Club kit. It was perfect for the Blocked Background technique from the August 2013 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. I used a little marker to add color to the background.

Have a great day!

Take Wing - Club Scrap Blog Hop

I am pleased to be part of the Club Scrap Blog Hop for the September Take Wing Kit. This kit is colorful and lively and it was a joy to work with. If you started here, you might want to take a minute to go back to the Club Scrap Blog to start the hop over, so that you have an up-to-the-moment list of all the bloggers in the hop.

I decided to create a box filled with note cards as a gift for one of my fox top, friends. To create the box top, I used one of the printed strips from the embellishment kit to create a Grouted Tile Mosaic lid. The cards themselves were a snap to make, too, and I have plenty of paper left over to create many gorgeous scrapbook pages!

Tune in tomorrow for a card made from the stamps in the kit, too.

In the mean time, on with the hop. Your next step is Julie, the Cape Cod Scrapper. Enjoy the hop!
