Today’s Card (4-8)

Hi, guys!

Back again with another “just for fun” card to share today.

Meet today’s card.

A stamped card by Teri || terisplace,wordpress.comI used some new stamps from the Fast Food Fun stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps to make this card. The fries, burger, hot dog and words are from the set. It’s a quirky… and fun…. set. Love stamps make you giggle, and this set does that for me.

FriesCard2-teri

I just used my scissors to fussy cut the images for my card here. (Not every card has to be a masterpiece. Sometimes, I just want to play and simply enough the process and not focus on perfection.)

Colored the images in with markers and then added a little extra detail with some Nuvo Crystal Drops and a white gel pen.

I cut the hearts with a die from Paper Smooches. If you look really close, you’ll see I added a red Nuvo Crystal Drop dot to the middle of each one. Super subtle.

All the papers? They are random scraps from my stash, other than the white and gray one, which is from the cover of a pad of paper (a really, really old pad of paper) from Studio Calico.

Alright! That’s it for now. I’ll be back again later, gators. Thanks, as always, for bopping on by.

October Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday

Hi everyone!

It’s Studio AE Blog Hop time once again! Hooray!

This month, we are using the new Hello December by Ali Edwards stamp set.

Technique-Tuesday-Hello-December-SAE-Clear-Stamps-MediumI think this set is great for December Daily type projects and for Christmas cards. Technique Tuesday is not releasing a December Daily set this year, but they have released a number of Christmas themed sets from Ali over the last few months. With those sets and this one, I am feeling pretty covered in that department!

I decided for today’s hop to make something not Christmas or December-y with the set.I really wanted to try to stretch the limits of it so I made this little scrapbook page of a favorite picture I took while at the fair last month.

2_SAE_1013_IncredibleMemories_teriI used one of the set’s borders to stamp up the rainbow background on cardstock.

2_SAE_1013_incrediblememories2_teri

I stamped one phrase from the new Studio AE set (“Favorite Memories”) in the middle of one of the red borders.  Then I pulled out some stamps from other Technique Tuesday stamp sets and stamped words from them in the others. Those sets were: Incredible by Ali Edwards; Seriously Rad; In a Nutshell and Awesome.

I also poked holes in a couple of the borders and tied solid twine through them.

I finished off the page with a little journaling, completed on my trusty typewriter.

2_SAE_1013_incrediblememories3_teri I do a lot of journaling by hand and on my computer, but it’s nice to mix things up once in awhile with the typewriter.

So that’s all I have for today.

Be sure to check out the blogs of everyone hopping today.

As always, be sure to comment as you go. We are going to give away one $25 gift certificate after the hop. To be eligible to win, all you need to do is comment during the hop!  The lucky winner will be announced on the 15th on the Technique Tuesday blog.

Happy hopping, and thanks for stopping by today!

August Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday

Hi all!

Woohoo! Time for another Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday!

We are sharing projects this month with the newest Studio AE set, called Leaving on a Jet Plane by Ali Edwards.

Technique-Tuesday-Leaving-On-A-Jetplane-Clear-Stamps-MediumI decided to make a scrapbook page with it! I love the adventure of traveling so it was really perfect for it.

2_YouAreHere_teri_edited-1All the words on the cork panel (which is just a piece of patterned paper and not real cork) were stamped with the set.

I also  pulled out my Travel With Flair by Ali stamp set and stamped it out a few times on cardstock. I then took a 1″ circle punch to them out. (By the way, if you are new to Technique Tuesday, you might not know that they standardized their circle stamps with their Winter release so when you see them release a “Flair” set — whether it be designed by Ali or me, Bev or Lori – it’s sized to work with a 1″ circle punch.)

So that’s all I have. 🙂

And don’t forget to comment as you go. Technique Tuesday will randomly pick someone who leaves a comment (chosen from comments left on all the blogs) to win a $25 gift certificate! The winner will be announced on the Technique Tuesday blog on the 15th.

Today’s project (3-12)

2_Todaywas4_teri_edited-1

Hi all!

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.)

2_Todaywas1_teri_edited-1

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.

Technique-Tuesday-In-A-Nutshell-Clear-Stamps-Medium Technique-Tuesday-Fill-In-The-Blanks-Clear-Stamps-Medium

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.

2_Todaywas3_teri_edited-1

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.
