It’s another day with a Technique Tuesday meets Kiwi Lane Designs project.
Thrilled to be joining my Technique Tuesday buddies again with sharing some projects we made with TT stamps and templates from Kiwi Lane Designs. The two manufacturers are partnering up this month to share projects made with products from both from companies.
I used Kiwi Lane Designs’ card templates to figure out the basic design of my card here. Here’s how it looked in planning progress.
It was really great to use the templates to figure out just how to cut the paper, where it went, etc. And it was nice to work up a design out of my norm with them.
I also used some of the stamps in my planning process by setting them down. (These ones are from TT’s In This House stamp set)
To finish off the card, I did quite a bit of stamping. Of course, I stamped the house and the words. I turned the red panel paper to a polka dot panel with TT’s Passion for Polka set. I also made the button with Technique Tuesday’s Button Up set.
Be sure to check out the other Technique Tuesday Creative Team members who are playing with Technique Tuesday and Kiwi Lane Designs projects today:
And you might want to leave a comment on their blogs, as well as the blogs of those who played on Tuesday:
Two Kiwi Lane Designs templates will go to one lucky commenter. Just leave a comment on any of the blogs for a chance at winning them. The winner will be announced on the TT blog on the 25th.
Yep! It’s a good day for another Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday!
The crew is playing around this month with Heartfelt by Ali Edwards, the Studio AE stamp set for May.
I decided to go the card route this month. Ali’s stamps are so graphic that I really wanted to challenge myself this month and try to go with a more homespun, shabby look.
I took the same “heart” you stamp and stamped it over and over on different pieces of paper. Then I cut, cut and cut some more.
I also over-stamped on some of the pieces of paper some words from her All My Love set on top. (Check out those cream hearts. You can see it there.)
I also added a few homespun touches: some stitches; some gems and a bit of twine. Again, just to kinda play on the shabby, homespun side.
Be sure to check out everyone taking part in the hop today:

Thanks for stopping by today!
Just a little something to share today that I made with the new Studio AE stamp set from Technique Tuesday. The new set, called Heartfelt by Ali Edwards, goes on sale today. Watch for it to go up on their Web site today. (And keep an eye on sites like Two Peas, Simon Says Stamp! and Ellen Hutson, who all carry the Studio AE stamps and will all have it later in the month.)
I made each of the little tag and square elements with the set. I think it’s a pretty great set for scrapbooking (traditional and pocket page style), but I really wanted to challenge myself this time to make a card with it. I thought some of the fun little elements would look great on a line so that’s what I went with.
I filled in the hearts randomly with patterned paper and pencils. Oh yeah, and a really big gem!
So that’s what I have. Be back again later.
Just a little something, something today.
Made this one with the April Greenhouse Society stamp set from Technique Tuesday. It goes on sale today on their Web site. (eta: As I was writing this, I noticed you can also find it through Ellen Hutson.)
The words are from their Happyville – Home stamp set.
I went all “old school” here and whipped out a really old set of chalks to do the coloring to the tulips. To give them a bit more depth, I first colored the leaves and flowers with lighter colors of chalk and then added a layer of darker color to them.
Really seemed to help.
The patterned paper? Well, that’s just a bunch of scraps left over from other projects I’ve been working on.
That’s all I have for you for now. Be back again later, gators.
April 10th means it is time for another Studio AE Blog hop for Technique Tuesday.
This month we are using the new Favorite Circles by Ali Edwards stamp set.
I really love this set for scrapbook pages, but I decided to challenge myself for this hop and make a card with it instead!
Playing on the old “awesome” theme here.
I stamped the circles four times, stamping on three of them a star from the set . I used the “you are” words from Ali’s Incredible set (I always giggle when I call it by its name. I think it really is incredible.) to stamp “you are” on the fourth circle.
Oh yeah, and I cut each of the circles out with a 1 3/4″ circle punch.
The gems were originally silver. I just used an orange Copic marker to give them a little tint of color.
Be sure to check the blogs of all taking part in the Blog Hop today:
Be sure to comment as you go! Technique Tuesday will select one person from all the comments made during the hop to win a $25 gift certificate to TechniqueTuesday.com. The winner will be announced on the 15th on the Technique Tuesday blog.
Just a simple card today.
Made this one mostly with the Favorite Circles by Ali Edwards stamp set, the new Studio AE set for April from Technique Tuesday. The little flowers are from that set.
The words are from the Happyville – Sunshine set.
To make the circles, I just kind of went to town and had fun, punching a bunch of 1″ circles and then stamping on top of them. To make them a little different, I added a clear epoxy dot on some of them, pearls on others and a button on another.
Just a fun way to make them all seem a little different.
Anyhoo, that”s all I have for you today.
If you are looking for more “in action” peeks of the new Studio AE set, check out the blogs of:
They’ve all shared projects with the new set, too! Pretty spiffy projects, too!
Be back again later, gators. Hope you are having a good day!
I’m out of the day.
Well, sorta. Kinda.
Instead you can find me doing a guest blog post for my friends at Simon Says Stamp! Check out the post right here. Here’s a peek.
And be sure to comment on that post over there. Thanks to Technique Tuesday, someone will win a Totally My Type stamp set, just like the one I used for my cards in the post.
A big thanks to TT for providing the prize! And a big thanks to Simon, too, for having me!
Hope you will check it out!
Hi all! Dabbling on the “dark side” again, working on a scrapbook page.
Made this for a scrapbook challenge I take part in every month at a local craft store. They challenge scrappers to make a layout – with a theme they picked and a few supplies of their choice. (This month’s theme was nostalgia, and they picked the kraft cardstock half a sheet of My Mind’s Eye patterned paper and a bottle cap.)
We are to add whatever we want and put our twist on things. I always enjoy a good challenge, so yeah, this page is what I came up with this time.
I added a few things: some paper and dies from Crate Paper’s DIY Shop line (big. time. L.O.V.E.), pearls and some of Ali’s Technique Tuesday stamps (All My Love by Ali Edwards and Family Is by Ali Edwards, a no-longer made/hard to find Studio AE set.) and a few other trinkets.
That’s all I have for now. so I will be back again later. Thanks for swinging by today.
Meet today’s not-a-card project. Ha!
I came home the other night from an adventure with a couple of my good friends, inspired to quickly put together a scrapbook page with some photo strips from the evening. (The three of us are quite addicted to photo booths and have quite a collection of them over the years. The collection grows a little every time we get together.)
Because it was super late… and because I wanted to do it quickly (and pressure-free)… I decided to go the slotted page protector way (aka: the Project Life way).
I used cards from Project Life’s Seafoam edition, as well as a couple Technique Tuesday stamp sets – Fill in the Blank and In a Nutshell.
In full disclosure here, I should say I designed both of these stamp sets. When I made them, it was pages like this – quick and simple – that I really hoped to be able to use them with.
I also mixed in a few wood shapes from Studio Calico, some gems and a few stickers.
Oh yeah, and I added a little handwriting. It was a bit on the messy side for this project but, sometimes, I regret I don’t do it more often in my scrapbooks.
All in all, I think I spent a grand total of 45 (mostly fuss free) minutes on this page, which is a kinda a scrapbooking miracle in my world. Sure, it’s not the fanciest page, but it’s kinda fun to just get it in the books so soon and so fast.
That’s all I have got. Be back again later, gators.
It’s time for another Studio AE Blog hop with Ali Edwards and Technique Tuesday. I’m happy to taking part today with some of my favorite folks!
This month, we are highlighting the new This Story by Ali Edwards stamp set (the Studio AE set for March).
I decided to challenge myself with this month’s set to make a layout with a photo that I’d been putting off scrapbooking.
The picture was taken with a self-timer of me and my family on Thanksgiving, sans my youngest cousin who was taking a nap so she could power shop on Black Friday. Yes, she does her older cousin proud.
I heat embossed one of the sentiment stamps to make the rectangle tile with white embossing powder and white ink.
I also used the “life is good” stamp from the set, just to add a little “something, something” under the picture.
Alright, that’s all I have got.

Like always, be sure to comment as you go! Technique Tuesday will give away a $25 gift certificate to someone who comments during the hop. The winner will be announced sometime on the 15th on the Technique Tuesday blog.
