Customer Spotlight and 40% off Today Only!

Surprise! It’s a spring Sale at Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff, save 40% off everything today only:

Now on with the show! I got an email from a lovely customer this week who made some beautiful centerpieces for her students based on my Blue and Gold Cub Scout centerpieces. Crafty teacher Elaine Porter used SVG die cuts from the Bowling Fun Clip Art and SVG set on her fabulous creations.

Here is what Elaine Porter said about these stunning centerpieces:

“These were the table decorations for the end-of-the-year banquet for The Colony High School Cougar Alley Kats Bowling Team and Club.  The Colony is a small city, pop. 30,000, just north of Dallas.  We bowl at Lakes Lanes, our local bowling center, here in town.  I’m the AP Spanish teacher at TCHS.  I’ve been there 25 years!  My how time flies!”

“I used a baggie filled with birdseed inside the paper box to weigh it down and then used floral foam and scrap paper on top of that.  The kids on the team came over during their Spring Break vacation (that’s dedication!) to help make the paper rosettes.  They were very proud of their work!  And I used your .svg files that I bought on the MyGrafico site for the shoes and bowling balls.
Thanks for the idea and the tools to make it happen!  You’re the best!”

“My motto is: If something I create makes someone else smile, then it was worth the time and effort to do it! 🙂

My kids on the bowling team were so proud of the table decorations they made that they took home most of them! We’ll definitely do this again because not only was it fun to do, but the kids learned that anyone can be creative if you just take the time to be adventurous and try something new!”

Thanks so much Elaine for sharing your creative project with us today! What lucky students you have 🙂

Make die-cuts “POP!”

Since my son is having his birthday party this week I decided it was about time I scrapbooked the photos from last years birthday party. He had a bowling party last year so I used my new Bowling fun Clip Art & SVG set and Bowling Fun Papers which are 40% off today only along with everything else at Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff {mygrafico shop only} and made this:

Want to print 12″ pattern paper but only have a standard 8.5″ wide printer? Here’s how: Use legal size paper (8.5″x14″) and  use the legal size setting in your printer. Click “center on paper” and set the scale to 100% and select landscape orientation if your paper will be used horizontally or portrait if the design will be used vertically. Then pint, think of all of the cool borders, titles and papers you can make. You can get a 12″x8.25″ printed piece of paper this way!

It's easy to give your die cuts dimention. Ink, layer and highlight! Thes svg die cutting files are included in the Bowling Fun set!

Now lets talk about die cuts. You can use your cricut machine and scal software to make cute paper pieced embellishments. To give them more dimension try inking the edges with brown chalk ink (I like chestnut roan by colorbox-the small cat’s eye size) before piecing then adding white highlights with a gel pen (Ranger Inksentials is the best!) You will have a custom multi layer look that is so cool! Here are some close ups of the bowling fun die cuts on the scrapbook page:

The word “Strike” was simply cut from a font (LD buttercream) I just typed it in scal, clicked weld and cut to get my letters to link together…that was all there is to it, easy peasy!

And here is a quick journaling tag I made with one of the clip art designs in the set, you get so much in this kit!

This project qualifies for the following challenges: Corrosive (no white paper), Craftilicious, Inky Impressions, PaperKutz, PearTree (anything goes), Crafty Calendar (birthdays), Cupcake Craft (boys and their toys), Kabers Challenges (kids) and Raise the BAr (hobby/sport/interest)
