Some Scrappin’ and some SALEin’ going on!

Hi there! I decided that since this is my birthday month, and I turned 35, I should have a 35% off sale in my Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff MyGrafico shop {better late than never right?}

I mentioned earlier how I have been lacking creative mojo this week and was making myself forge ahead and create but I want to amend that a bit…create something a little different than usual. If you usually paint, try knitting, if you usually make cards create a scrapbook page instead…and that is what I did! I used the paper dolls from the Laundry Kids SVG set to create the dolls in these pages of my daughters bridging from Daisy to Brownie Girl Scouts:

Now let me point out the “moldy-oldie” products on these pages: Chipboard letters at least 5 years old from the Dollar Spot at Target, “Clipper Clips” from Around The Block holding a folded daisy to the edge of the page and a journal tag to the lower page. The stamp set that the journal tag came from (Autumn Leaves) is a couple of years old and the silk flowers go back 8 years….no, I am not a horder. :) And because I have twins I had to make a page featuring each of them {well, DUH.}

The Laundry Kids SVG set is really versatile, I cut a bunch of extra dolls and outfits from paper scraps so my girls could play with them. This is a great way to use up your scraps! You can mix and match the separated to create unlimited outfits! I made the vest by cutting the tank top in half, easy peasy and it is on sale too! Here is a look at the kit:

Stamp something, you’ll feel better!

Happy Wednesday folks! I have been suffering from a lack of creative mojo this week but if there is one thing I have found is that the best way to get out of a funk is just to make yourself create. This won’t win any prizes but at least I made something {and it is always good to have extra “guy” cards on hand.} Also I like how the card looks like and old-fashioned radio;)

 

I punched some pattern paper circles and placed them face down on a mouse pad and rubbed over them in a circular motion with a large ball end stylus to make the large “faux brad” and adhered them with a pop-dot to punched circles.

Tip: If you paper does not want to punch heat it for a few seconds with a heat tool, it will wick away the moisture in the paper and make it punch crisply, also I got a better punch by folding the paper over and punching to layers at once ;)

 

Stamps: Take a Spin set: Stampin Up!, Texture plate: Fiskars, Pattern Paper: My Minds Eye, Ink: SU!

That’s it for today, til next time happy crafting…and go stamp something!

Why the frog on the cupcake? {and a storage tip!}

I love making a custom card or tag the reflects the unique personality of the recipient. This tag was for my neighbor’s son on his 6th birthday, he is really into frogs:

I used the stamps Ribbit (Frog & Mushroom), Soda Pop Alpha (2 sizes), Vintage Cupcake, Carnival Alpha ( Small) and the little tag hole enforcer thingie is from Holly & Mistletoe. All stamps are from Pink Persimmon. I colored the image with my Promarkers.

Stamping tip: When you are stamping a word (like I did with the name “Brennon”) and you want it centered start by stamping the middle letter (in this case “n”) and work out from there, perfectly centered every time!

Storage Tip: Look for spice racks at yard sales, the bottles are perfect for storing buttons by color and they are so pretty sitting on your craft table!

Lindsay in HD! {let’s make stamps!}

**** 7/18/11 FYI I was at Target today and they have sets of 18 foam blocks in the dollar spot. They have one pack with different shapes and one package that are all square. I know some of you were having a hard time finding the blocks to use in this tutorial. The Dollar Store often have them too :) ***

Howdy all! I celebrated my 35th birthday on Sunday and my husband got me an HD video camera so I could shoot my crafty videos in style. The best part is that it has a better microphone so I no longer sound like I have a lisp in my videos. :) Here is my first attempt with the new camera:

So, can you notice a difference? Did the video take longer to load? I am really curious as I had to buy new software to edit my video since it shoots in MP4 and my old ULEAD Video Studio Pro did not support the file but good news, Corel (my fave editing software company) purchased Video Studio Pro and the new version works beautifully with the MP4 files and it is similar enough to my old software so the learning curve isn’t too bad…just goes to show you can’t go wrong with Corel! Here is a close up of the card shown in the video:

Wath the video to see how I made the blue and rust stamps using an embossing folder and a foam baby block from the dollar store!

A simple “bleep bleep” birthday card!

Hello there, today I wanted to share a card/tag/envelope set I made for a birthday the kids want to this weekend, it only took minutes to make;

 

I like to test my stamps out on a scrap before committing them to a card. In this case the test scrap made a nice tag. I wanted to make a matching envelope so I simply used the same ink to stamp gears on the envelope too, easy peasy!

I used stamps from The Paper Studio (all but the flag which is Pink Persimmon and the tiny green alien and tiny beep, those are from Basic Grey) Ink was from Stampin’ Up (Real Red, Only Orange, Tempting turquoise, and basic black) the only coloring was on the flag and done with a yellow tombow marker.

Honestly, it took longer to write this blog post them to make the card!

Here is a tip though, the clear robot stamps are cheapies from JoAnns, to get them to stamp well I scuffed them with a fine grit emery board (or you can use an eraser) then the ink will stick properly to them;)

Til next time happy crafting!
