Giveaway Time

Calling one. Calling all.

I’ve got some slightly used stamps that are desperately in need of a good home, and I’d like to give them to one of you.

As you may have heard, Technique Tuesday and Ali Edwards recently ended their business relationship. Technique Tuesday ended the Studio AE program  and launched two brand new monthly auto-ship programs –  Memory Keepers Studio  (stamps) and Fresh Cut Studio (steel dies). And Ali  is launching a new venture too.

I have loved working with Ali’s stamps. But in order to keep my TT stash of stamps manageable, I went through my stash and pulled out a few of  my Studio AE sets to give away today. (Most of these stamps are no longer available… and those that are, won’t be for long. Technique Tuesday is no longer manufacturing any Ali stamps.)

I’m hoping one of you will give these stamps the crafty love they deserve. (And… ok… before anyone gasps…. don’t worry! I’m not getting rid of all my Ali stamps! I’ve still got tons more in my stash, but I haven’t used these ones in awhile so I felt it was a good time to pass them onto someone who will use them. 🙂 )


So here’s what is in the stash:

Please note that I used all of these stamps to create sample projects  for the Studio AE program for Technique Tuesday. These stamps have been all been used. Some sets were inked up more than others. A couple of these stamps are early versions of the stamp sets so they lack printing on the packaging. Most of these stamps were available for only a very limited time.

And here’s a little extra fine print.  My only request is that whoever wins these stamps not sell them. If  you won’t use any of these stamps or they are duplicates of stamps you own, please just pass them onto a crafty friend or two. Please share the love.

So if you are still interested, please leave a comment on my post by midnight EST on Tuesday (the 8/26). I’ll pick one of you to score the goods. Yes, the winner will get all nine stamp sets. (And please note  the winner must take them all. No exceptions. Sorry. )

Good luck!

June Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday

It’s Studio AE Blog Hop time.  (Woo-hoo!)

And I’ve got a couple cards to share with you today that I made with the new Pure Magic by Ali Edwards stamp set.


Here’s card #1.


Besides Ali’s stamp set, I also used a couple Technique Tuesday dies — Photo Frame and Nested Stars. (The Nested Stars dies just started shipping on Monday.)


And here’s card #2.


I cut all the stars with the Nested Stars dies. The sentiment is from Ali’s set.


And here is everyone else who is blog hopping today.

May Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday (5-10)

Hi all!

The 10th means it’s Studio AE Blog Hop time! (Hooray! I always love this day of the month.)

We are featuring the brand new Today Circles by Ali Edwards stamp set, which is the Studio AE set for May.


I always love a good circle stamp set. And this one is worthy of two thumbs up, if you ask me.

So here’s the scrapbook page I made with it!

2_sae_514_thebestthing_teriI recently attended the annual Editorial Board meeting for Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine. I’m one of their Go-to Gals and Contributing Editors. There are 7 of us, and the meeting allows us a chance to give feedback to the magazine’s editors and help them plan for the next production year. (We usually do some fun stuff, too, like visit some manufacturer’s spots and spend a little time being tourists, but we really are there to meet and do editorial-related stuff.)

Anyway, this page pays tribute to the other Go-to Gals. I have really enjoyed getting to know them in the time we’ve worked together. We are SOOOOO different and yet we share this common bond over paper crafting.  It makes it fun!

2_SAE_514_TheBestthing2_teriI made the title by mixing together a circle stamped with the set’s “best” stamp and some letter stickers. (In case you are wondering, the stickers and patterned papers I used are from Simple Stories’ DIY and DIY Boutique collections.)

2_SAE_514_ThebestThing3_teriI added a kinda fun element at the bottom. I die-cut a paper clip (with TT’s Memo Pad Card DIY Steel Dies) and then stamped a couple words from the set on strips of cardstock. Sorta digging the look.

Well, that is all I have today.

April Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday (4-10)

Hello, hello!

It’s Studio AE Blog Hop time again! So stoked to be hopping yet again with my TT pals.

Today, we are sharing projects made with the new Good Times by Ali Edwards stamp sets.


And here’s what I made.

It’s a simple little pocket page. Usually when I make pocket pages, they take several hours.

But I decided to play it simple with this one and just focus on putting together a quick, simple page.

SAE_414_SoSoFun1_teriI created the top the card by cutting a piece of vellum and then stamping the Great Memory phrase (from the stamp set) with Versamark ink and then heat embossing it with black embossing powder.I dig that looks a bit like I stamped on the picture.


There are some other stamped elements here too. The Grid cards were die-cut with Technique Tuesday’s Story Card die and then stamped on top with their coordinating Grid stamp. The Today Was words are from Ali’s This Day Was stamp set (also from Technique Tuesday).

By the way, here’s one other thing I recently made with the stamp set.


I just love coloring in those words from the stamp set with pencils.

I again used the Grid stamp on one of the base cards. On the other, I used coordinating College Ruled stamp set to stamp the lines.

March Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I’m joining some of my Technique Tuesday buddies today for the March Studio AE Blog Hop. We are featuring Wow by Ali Edwards, this month’s Studio AE stamp set.


If you aren’t familiar with Studio AE, here’s how it works: Technique Tuesday releases a new stamp set every month as part of their Studio AE program. The sets feature designs by Ali Edwards. These sets are available for a limited time. (They also do general release sets from Ali, too.)

I’ve got three projects to share today that use the stamp set.

Here’s #1.


I thought it would be fun to build one really big sentiment around one of the set’s phrases so I stamped “proud of you” on patterned paper, cut it out and then added a bunch of “so” words over it.

And this is #2.


I did kinda the same thing with this card as the last. I just build the sentiment around the “thumbs up” box.

I also stamped the little star border. To keep it similar to the “proud of you” saying, I used a black pen to draw the box around it.


And this is #3.


For this one, I thought it would be fun to pair a bunch of the stamp set’s words together so that’s what I did. Everything else is just sorta randomly put together.


Even though I made these as cards, I think it would be fun to start out with a 4″ x 6″ card and recreate some designs kinda like this for a Project Life – type of album. I  dabble in that world myself and think some of the set’s words would work pretty well for documenting folks doing good.

Ok… so that’s what I have.

February Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday (2-10)

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

Thrilled to be joining a few of my favorite folks today! For today’s hop, we are using the all-new Best Banners by Ali Edwards stamp set.


I’ve got two projects to share.

Here’s No. 1.


This one was pretty simple. I stamped up a couple banners, poked holes in them and then slid a toothpick through each one to make a couple picks for food. Imagine doing something simple like this for Valentine’s Day or Birthday cupcakes. Easy peasy.

Plus, if you didn’t want to go the food route, you could use these little flags on a card or scrapbook page.


And here is No. 2.


Speaking of using those flags on a card, I made a couple for this one. 😉

I also added a word from Ali’s So Very Thankful stamp set for Technique Tuesday.


Be sure to check out all the stops on today’s hop.

Technique Tuesday will pick one person from all the comments received on all the blogs to score a $25 e-Gift Card from The lucky winner will be announced on the Technique Tuesday blog on the 15th.

January Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday

Yep! It’s Studio AE Blog Hop time again! I’m so excited to be hopping with the Studio AE crew again. I always look forward to the 10th.

This month’s stamp set (and hop guest of honor, so to speak) is the All My Heart by Ali Edwards stamp set.


Pretty fun!

I decided to make a card with it for today’s hop. So here you go! 😉


I stamped a bunch of the stamps with red ink on cardstock, cut them out and then just sorta used them as embellishments.

I had a lot of fun just mixing and matching them with other bits and pieces. Outside of the sequins, gems, doily and clip, most everything else (but the stamps) is from Crate Paper.
