Today’s card… no, layout (5-4)

Hi guys!

Sharing a layout, not a card, I created with Sassy Camera, a new stamp set I designed for Technique Tuesday that comes out today in honor of National Scrapbook Day.


First, before I talk about the layout, let me give A HUGE thank you to Heather Hoffman, who kindly provided the picture I used on this layout. It’s such a fun picture that was taken while she and her friends were at Creativation this year.  (Thank you, guys.)

So about the layout. I stamped all the phrases, cameras and photo frames with the stamp set. Oh, and the stars too! I also used the coordinating dies, which went on sale today too.


The layout’s background was created by just mixing together a bunch of patterned paper scraps with cardstock, plus some washi tape.  You’ll see that washi tape in the top corner of the picture. There were also a few dots added to the layout with Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Oh and that text on the picture? I went old school, pulling out letters from my stash of letter stickers and label tape.

If you think you might like to own the Sassy Camera stamp set, it’s a good weekend to snatch it up. You can get it for free through Sunday when you make a $30 or more purchase through TT’s website. This graphic has the scoop on how to get the set for free.


Alright! See you again soon, friends.

Thanks for stopping by.



Technique Tuesday New Release Countdown: Day 1


Hi, guys!

Technique Tuesday’s next release happens on May 1st so the design team is joining the countdown fun in sharing some projects made with some of the new goods today.

I’m excited to share with you something I made with the new What a Guy stamps and dies.

Rather than making a card, I made this simple little layout. What-A-Guy-Tools-Layout-Teri-A-Technique-Tuesday

The little guy? He’s the nephew of my friend, Tam, who provided the picture for me to use. (The layout will go to her sister, who I hope likes it.)

All the tools were stamped with the stamp set and then colored in with markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

The words on the label are also from the What a Guy stamp set. I did added my own little personal touch to the stamped words by adding a couple dots with a white pen to them. With that font, I think that looks pretty cool!

The label? You might be wondering about it. It’s from the previously released Retro Labels dies. It’s a good set of dies that I used often.

Alright! That’s all I have for you today. Be sure to check out Technique Tuesday’s New Release page on May 1st. That’s when all the new products will be there.

Also, swing by the Technique Tuesday blog for links to all the design team members sharing projects today.

Be back again tomorrow! Hope to see you then!

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.


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.


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. 🙂

Be sure to check out the blogs of everyone taking part in today’s hop:

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)


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.)


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.


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.
