Inspiration Week {Anabelle & Stacey}

We're so excited to share what inspires us...especially since next week, we're unveiling several new CHA-Summer goodies that are going to INSPIRE your creative socks off! 

Today, we're sharing projects from Stacey Michaud and Anabelle O'Malley and we get to hear a bit about where they get their inspiration. Here's Stacey to tell you in her own words...

Today, we're featuring our Game On collection, which is so versatile, like Stacey says, and she's created such an adorable page to share today. Here's the completed version:

2coolkids650_web

We love the addition of the curves up at the top. They complement the squares perfectly. 

Cool-kids-detail-650_web

Anabelle also got to playing with Game On, and her layout shows off some other fabulous elements of this collection. 

Ph1_web

Anabelle's large die cut title is an absolute stunner, and we are in love with the arrows that draw the eye toward it. A little tip, those arrows are actually squares cut in half...genius!

Ph2_web

The little tickets tucked under the banner are also a winner, and we love the way the whole thing came together! 

Ph3_web

This collection has so much to offer, so if you're looking for something versatile with tons of great embellishments, head over to the Webster's Pages website and start shopping today!

Inspiration Week {Jamie & Tomoko}

This week, we're excited to show you little peeks into the minds of some of our designers, in hopes of finding out what inspires them! 

Here's Jamie Harder to tell us more about her creative process...and read on to see her project AND learn a bit about Tomoko Takahashi's inspiration...

Websters Pages from Jamie Harder on Vimeo.

Isn't she adorable? Thanks to Jamie for sharing a little bit about what inspires you!

Here's a closer look at her gorgeous layout, and of course, the papers that inspired her design.

Youareamazing_web

Jamie's Clean and Simple style is lightly layered and absolutely beautiful. We love how she's incorporated such lovely details and still kept her design true to her style. 

Youareamazingcloseup_web

Also notice how she's used the positve and negative parts of this stamped butterfly. Perhaps for the rest of us, our inspiration will come from Jamie's creativity!

Youareamzingcloseup2_web

Tomoko has a Classic Webster's Pages style, and we love looking inside her creative mind to find out how she came up with such a gorgeous design. 

June27post_web

Tomoko says her inspiration was the original photo: 

IMG_9194_web

The bubbles in the photo have a lovely rainbow color so Tomoko tried to express that same color by converting her photo to black and white and coloring the page with beautiful rainbow colors.

IMG_2324_webTomoko_web

Look at all the gorgeous details Tomoko included in her layout. We're completely smitten! 

How about you? Do you relate to Jamie and Tomoko's sources of inspiration? What about these layouts inspire you?

Inspiration Week {Emeline}

If you've ever wondered where our designers find the inspiration for all their amazing creations, you're in the right place. This week, we're asking them to explain how they stumble upon such brilliance, and today we get to hear from the fabulous Emeline Seet. 

Emeline has created an amazing Girl Land layout with too many wonderful elements to name:  

Emeline-_web

For this layout, Emeline pulled her inspiration right from the products, deciding to magnify the zig-zag pattern of the purple chevron paper, making it a key element on this layout. 

Step One:Step-1_web
Step Two: 

Step-2_web

Step Three:Step-3_web

Emeline cropped her photos into small squares (3cm x 3 cm) and arranged them in Photoshop, then printed them as photo strips. Emeline says, "I really like the idea of showcasing multiple photos on my layout and let the sequence of photos tell the story." 

Emeline-Close-Up-Web

Now that we know where Emeline got her inspiration, we can all be inspired by her layout! What a gorgeous way to showcase these special {magical} memories!

Inspiration Week {Jaz & Diana}

If you're like us, you're dying to know how our design team members get their inspiration! There are so many amazing creations from the minds of our designers, so we thought we'd reveal some of the mystery and ask them to tell us...

Today we're talking to both Jaz Lee and Diana Brodeur on the topic of inspiration. First, let's take a peek into Jaz's world... 

 
We absolutely love that we got a tiny peek inside Jaz's creative genius...that was SO much fun, and she certainly knows how to harness her inspiration.

Here is the project she showed us in the video: Wpyatch1-1_web

Is anyone else completely in awe? Jaz used our beautiful Sunday Picnic collection to create the most amazing three dimensional project... Wpyatch0_web

And it is an absolute stunner.

Thanks, Jaz for allowing us to peek inside your world and sharing a bit of your inspiration.

Inspiration_web396Diana Brodeur, one of our Clean and Simple girls, also has some inspiration for us today...  

For her inspiration, Diana turned to one of our favorite sources, Pinterest, where she found this image (left).

You can see it HERE.

There are so many inspiring pieces on Pinterest.

Diana explains, "I was inspired by the scallops and layering on the bags. This prompted me to layer pieces of scallop papers together.

"I also liked how the heart is in a contrasting color. I mimic this by adding a butterfly with a little bit of bling on it."


Take a look at Diana's Pinterest-inspired Layout:

Reading-time_web

As always, we're smitten with Diana's clean and simple style, and we love how her inspiration piece translated into the perfect layout.  

Reading-time-closeup_web

So, tell us, what inspires you? Do you look to your surroundings, the people you love or is it something else that makes you want to be creative? 

Our Sunday Picnic collection is still a customer favorite! You can shop the whole line by clicking the image below:

Pick-Me-Upper

you know...

sometimes you need a little pick-me-upper?

Tired

right?

I DO!

Ok...the real deal here.

Sick children - yep, got 'em.

Messy house - yep, got that one too.

No fresh food - check.

Tired momma - okeedokee, I think you know the answer based on the picture ;o)

This is the real deal folks. It's been one of those weeks. I need a little pick-me-upper.

I find when I need a little break, exhale, a little "me" time, I can recharge...even if it's 10 minutes.

Sometimes I just sit & be still.

Other times I cozy up to a cup of coffee & just observe (not act on) the things around me.

And tonight, I decided to go to our member gallery at InspireME to sit back & let the slide show do all the work for me & watch our member's beautiful stories told through scrapbooking & cardmaking. Some silly, some sad. Some playful, some serious.That was my release tonight. You should check it out if you haven't this week. Wow...a lot of many things struck chords with me tonight. Here are a few...

TogetherAlways

"Together Always" by Rosangela Philippsen just made me feel happy ?

Happy

Melissa Elsner, was this card made for me tonight as I pull an all nighter with my little girl? {xo}

CS213ErinBlegen

And then, Erin Blegen, your page spoke to me...Yep...this IS WHY I will be pulling an all nighter with my sick little girl ?

And then...as I was about to wrap it up, I burst out laughing...Anabelle O'Malley, I'm sure you didn't intend on this reaction to your page but where else can you go to find inspiration on how to scrap a layout with a subject "Fun with a Box"? Right HERE at InspireME!

Box1

I love this Anabelle ? Now this is real life. Just like my post today!

Mix up Your Media {with Webster's Pages}

Here at Webster's Pages, we are so thankful to have a design team with multiple talents! We love when they have the opportunity to share their artistic endeavors...especially when they're "out of the box!" 

Today, we're taking a look at three gorgeous projects that incorporate mixed media elements, and we'll start with a Gerry van Gent layout. Treasured-memories_Gerry_we

Gerry mixed two of ou collections, Girl Land and Sunday Picnic to create this layout, fusing traditional scrapbooking with a variety of mixed media techniques. 
For instance, the swirls were made by applying modeling paste on a stencil. (Modeling paste is a great way to add texture to a layout.
Also, these stamped flowery clocks have been given the mixed media treatment as well. First, Gerry stamped them with Staz-on (this is key because you can paint over the stamped image and it will stay intact. She then applied gesso to the image to create a white-washed look on the image. 

Gerry_close_web

All of Gerry's flowers are handmade, some created from our netting which have been dabbed with gesso and dressed up with pearls. 

Close_3_web

What a gorgeous way to implement so many new techniques! 

Now, let's take a look at this lovely art journal created by Emeline Seet:

WP-Mixed-Media-Journal-_web

Emeline says: "As a paper crafter who prefers to have a revolving style, I like to experiment with inks and other mediums. Each time I dabble with mixed media, I always reach for my gesso, acrylic paint and mists."

WP Mixed Media Journal II

Emeline uses gesso to blend a mix of patterned papers, and obviously she's doing a beautiful job of that! Here's a closer peek: 

WP Mixed Media Journal III

Jaz Lee often does "off the page" type projects, and we often gasp when we see them! Here, Jaz is turning junk into art by starting with a recycled box as her base: 

Wpmixmedia1_web

 

Believe it or not, Jaz prepared the box for altering in five simple steps: 

Step One: Layer tissue paper all over the box 
Step Two: Apply Mod Podge. Then gesso.
Step Three: Mist with mask. Then mist the top of the board till its wet enough to drip down.
Step Four: Randomly add glitter.
Wpmixmedia2_web
But it's Step Five where she really shines! 
Step Five: Embellish using cutouts from Webster's Pages papers and products from Webster's Pages. You could stare at these photos for hours and still not see everything there is to see here. Wow! 

 

Wpmixmedia3_web

We'd love to know...do you dabble in mixed media? What are some of your favorite ways to incorporate mixed media techniques with your scrapbooking supplies?

Welcome, Summer! {Palm Beach Style}

Today is officially the first day of summer, and we're ready with three different summer themed layouts featuring our Palm Beach collection (which just so happens to be PERFECT for summery projects!) 

And these are just the girls to help ring in summer the right way...Iris, Anabelle and Nina!

June-22nd-headshots

Take a look at this gorgeous layout from Iris Babao Uy: 

Life's-A-Beach_web

There are SO many things to love about this page, starting with the adorable photos (and the crying one is a heart-melter!) Design-wise, Iris has given us such a beautiful page to admire. 

These die cut circles remind us of bubbles and the textured zig zags of waves... and we absolutely love the way she's decorated them both! 

Beach_close1_web

The combination of Palm Beach trims and Perfect Accents, as well as hand-cut elements is absolutely stunning! 

Beach_close2_web

Anabelle O'Malley also pulled out her Palm Beach products for this layout. Her peek-a-boo title has us swooning. 

Wr1_web

This is such a clever way to incorporate many patterns without overwhelming the layout. 

Wr2_web

Plus, Anabelle's choice of a blue background is pure perfection for a water-themed page. 

And how about the oversized, hand-cut chevrons at the center of the layout? Genius!

Wr3_web

Finally, we have a funky and fun summertime page from Nina Ostermann: 

Nina1_web

Nina does minimal like no one we know, adding just the right pops of color and in such clever ways! 

Nina_close_web

We love the orange and blue theme in this page, but it's these diecut circles that have really stolen our heart! How brilliant is this? Nina created this look with her Silhouette Cameo, tucking bits of Palm Beach papers in a few carefully selected circles. 

Nina_close2_web

Summer, we're ready to welcome you with open arms!! 

So tell us, are you scrapbooking the current season? What summer projects are you working on?

Welcome {Guest Designer} Jen Gallacher

Jen-headshot-black-and-whitOh, how we love when we get to share the work of a fabulous guest designer... seeing what our friends create with our products is one of the highlights for us! 

This month, we're thrilled to introduce someone who needs no introduction at all! Jen Gallacher. 

Jen is very well-known in the scrapbooking industry thanks to her hard work on various design teams, her frequent publications and her gig as a Garden Girl over at Two Peas in a Bucket. 

This month, we sent Jen two of our collections, Girl Land and Sunday Picnic. 

When she sent us the images of her creations, we were instantly smitten by her Clean and Simple style, her clever use of color and her perfectly placed embellishments. 

We think you're going to be smitten too...

First, take a look at this adorable Sunday Picnic layout Jen created:

Summer-Layout_web

for her fabulous title treatment, Jen cut the words from cardstock with her Silhouette machine and then layered papers and embellishments from the Sunday Picnic collection. For variation, she left some of the letters attached, which just makes the whole thing look even cooler, don't you think?

Summer-Layout-Close-Up_web

Jen also created a sweet Sunday Picnic card, and we're in love with the orange and green combo!

Play-time-Card_web

Purely adorable. 

If that's not enough, our Design Team set out to create their own take on Jen-inspired designs. 

Jamie Harder said: "I LOVE Jen's clean lines, her mix of colours, and her designs are always so amazing!" Below, you can see how Jamie interpreted Jen's style on her own layout: 

Alwaysmygirllayout_web

Jamie used the Girl Land collection for her Clean and Simple layout featuring a photo of her gorgeous daughter. 

Larissa Albernaz shows us a Classic Webster's approach, proving that we can all be inspired by each other, no matter how different our styles are. 

June-GDT-Lift---Larissa_web

Larissa's textured layout features the Everyday Poetry collection and wow, is it jaw-dropping to look at! 

But these are only the beginning... you can find more from Jen as well as our other design team members on THIS THREAD over at Inspire Me. (You don't have to be a member to view the thread, but while you're there, you might as well join anyway...we love making new friends!) 

Special thanks to Jen for sharing her talent with us this month!

Happy_Times_with_Daddy_deta

Designer Gerry van Gent also took this challenge, and she did a stellar job of creating a layout about her favorite guy: 

Gerry_web

Gerry mixed and matched collections, using everything from Yacht Club to Ladies and Gents to Game On to create her beautiful, layered page. (She also threw in some In Love, Everyday Poetry, Trendsetter and Botanical Christmas...don't you love how versatile our collections are?)

Handmade Father's Day

Yesterday we shared some wonderful boyish layouts created with girlish products...and today, in honor of Father's Day, we're going 100% masculine...for the special men in your life.

Thanks to these three lovely ladies: 
 Blog

(Designers Stacey Michaud, Jamie Harder and Jill Cornell)

We're bringing you two cards and a wall hanging...all easy to create before Father's Day rolls around on Sunday!

First, Stacey is going to take us through the steps to creating a Father's Day wall hanging using our Game On Collection. 

Stacey says: "I love to create gallery walls in my home, especially those with interested elements such as monograms or small artifacts. I decided to make wall art celebrating my husband and his legacy. Our last name begins with an M and his favorite number is 11. What better way to say Happy Father’s Day then to display all things meaningful to him?

Wall-art_web

Step One: Start with a gallery frame that is divided into three or use three individual frames.

Step Two: Choose a monogram or a number that holds significance. I chose M for our last name.

Step Three: Print a letter M using the Impact font sized at 400. 

Step Four: Cut the letter out and begin layering any patterned papers of your choice. I adhered the red solid, stripe and check to the M, then used a craft knife to trim the extra. Repeat with the numerals.  Lettertutorial_edited-1_webStep Five: Use a ruler to ensure the elements are level. I wanted to place the red strip under the 11 to carry the pops of red all around the art.

Howto_web

I decided to build some simple and graphic art in the middle frame. Since I wanted a masculine feel, I used geometric shapes to build my art.

IMG_0046_edited-1web

A little impact goes a long way, especially when this is placed on a wall of photos.

Stacey's wall hanging will come together quickly but carries so much meaning for the whole family. 

Perhaps you've already picked out the perfect gift...why not create a handmade card to go along with it? Designer Jamie Harder's "Best Dad" card also features our Game On Collection.

BestDadCard_web

Simple, masculine and easy to recreate, this card would be perfect atop any Father's Day gift! 

Jill Cornell also shows off a clean and simple "Best Dad" card with the perfect pops of color. 

Best_Dad_cardweb

Quick and easy but so, so beautiful. 

Tell us...what are you creating for the special guy in your life?

Outside the Box Creativity {And Last Chance to Save $100!}

One thing we love around here is versatility. Sometimes, it's easy to look at a collection of papers and see only one thing. One theme. One gender. One way to use the product. 

But a GREAT way to stretch your creativity is to do the unexpected. Today, three of our designers are turning the unexpected on its ear to create masculine pages using traditionally feminine products. 

Designers

Nina Ostermann, Emma Trout and Jaz Lee are masters at this creativity stuff...so keep scrolling for TONS of inspiration. 

First up, Nina's take: 

Nina1_web

Nina chose to highlight her little boy photo using minimal Clean and Simple papaers, but notice how she also incorporated the doilies at the top for added pop. 

Nina2_web

We love that her "arrows" are sewn down the center with the ends still popping up ever so slightly. The dimension is such a fun look! 

Emma Trout went full on pink for this gorgeous page featuring a photo of...you guessed it...a boy!

Blink--Emma-Trout_web

Boys don't often wear pink, but by converting the image to black and white, Emma was able to make lots of pink work on this page. 

And her embellishments are incredible. 

Emma2_web

Emma dabbed Gesso onto her mini princess petal and dried it using a heat tool. This experimenting led to a happy accident whent he petals crinkled and shrunk forming some very interesting shapes! 

Gesso-heat-curled_web

The results are pure perfection! 

And Jaz Lee is sharing a boyishly wonderful layout that she's teaching at her scrapbooking store in Singapore. If you're in the area (lucky ducks!) you can check it out for yourself HERE

Haz1_web

We sure would love to know Jaz's secrets for creating gorgeous, layered layouts every single time! 

Even though the Sunday Picnic collection might not scream "boy!" it sure works for this layout!

Jaz2_web

The truth is, when it comes to creativity and art...anything goes! So find something you love and capture the memories that matter most!

Art Journaling with Webster's Pages

Warehousesale_header-(2)-we
Wow! We've been SO overwhelmed by the amazing response to our warehouse sale! We got so many orders right away that our website crashed. 

Someone on Facebook said "Only a bunch of scrapbookers could crash a website!" 

And that's what we love about you guys! We love how excited and enthusiastic you are about our products, and even more than that, we LOVE to see what you guys do once you get them in your hands! So, if you haven't checked out our Warehouse Sale yet, there's still time...just click on the photo!

Swirl_2

Today, we're mixing it up a little with something different. We want to show you how awesome our products are not just for cardmaking and scrapbooking, but also for art journaling. 

Here, Emma Trout has created a gorgeous art journal page:

Emma-Journal-page---web

She used all kinds of tidbits from our Everyday Poetry collection. Notice how there's no photo, but there's plenty of art.

Dream-deet-copy2_web

Emma mixed hand-cut elements with our embellishments, papers and paint for a completely artistic twist on a layout, and we're 100% smitten when the whole thing. 

Dream-deet-copy-web

She also outlined various elements with a fine tipped black marker to make certain things pop right off the page. It's just gorgeous. 

Speaking of gorgeous, look at the latest creation from Designer Gerry van Gent:

ArtJournal_Gerry_web

Gerry was able to incorporate several of the new Girl Land background stamps into her design, and the results are simply stunning. There is so much texture on this page, we just want to reach out and touch it. Close-1_web

Gerry also stuck to her style by popping certain elements up off the background for that dimensional look we all love. We love an art journal that's full of visually interesting elements, and our girls have got that down pat!

Close-3_web

So, what creative endeavors are you using your Webster's Pages for these days? We'd love to hear (and see!) what your hands are making. 

Happy Tuesday!

Scrap Your Vacation {& find out how to save over $100!}

Before I show you anything else today (and we have some great inspiration for you...) I have to show you this:

Warehouse-sale-06.2012-_web

I know you want to lean in closer and do a bit of calculating...because when I tell you that come Monday, we're offering this entire box in our warehouse sale for only $25, you're going to want to whip out your calculator and figure out what you're saving. 

Let me save you the trouble. 

This box retails for $129.

That's OVER $100 IN SAVINGS!

The sale starts on Monday over on the Webster's Pages website, so be prepared...there are limited quantities and once they're gone, they're gone! 

Swirl_2

Now, let's get down to inspiration. It's summer...which means many of you will be heading out on vacation...so we thought a bit of vacation inspiration was in order. 

Three of our designers got to work with our Palm Beach Collection (perfect for vacations!) and the results are unbeatable!

First up, Diana Brodeur:

SeaLife_web

Diana was able to use the logo from the aquarium as the title of this layout, something to think about when you're out taking in the sights!

Here, we're in love with the way Diana's Chevron block is just a tiny bit crooked. 

Snake-adventures_web

This makes the page even more interesting (as if the snake isn't interesting enough!) 

Next up, Stacey Michaud is also giving us a little tilting, which you can see here on her adorable title:

Stacey_web

We love the triangles in the upper left corner and also the way Stacey created a banner by hand-cutting a portion of the Chevron paper. Here's a closer look:

Stacey2_web

What a great way to transform that pattern!

If digital is more your thing, designer Julie Walton is here to help. Check out her gorgeous Palm Beach layout showcasing an incredible set of vacation memories:

Julie_web

We love how Julie implemented a photo of the street signs into her layout. Something truly unique that she won't soon forget. 

So, tell us, where are you going for summer vacation this year? Click any of the images below to start stocking up on the perfect vacation collection...Palm Beach!

Scrap Space Tour With Gabrielle Pollacco

Gabi

I don't know about you, but I love to see what other designers have done to organize their scrapbook supplies. It's so inspiring to take a peek into other people's creative spaces and find out a little about how they work. 

Today, we get to go on a little tour of Gabrielle Pollacco's scrapspace. Gabi says, "I'm one of those scrappers that has to start with a clean slate, so no matter how messy I get while scrapping (and believe me, it looks like a bomb hit the room while I'm in the middle of scrapping!) I always clean up immediately after I finish my project so that I am ready to scrap when the mood/or assignment strikes."

Oooh, now there's something to aspire to! Take a look at the benefits of cleaning up your scrapbook room...let's start with Gabi's main workspace:

Room-View-2_web

On the right, you can see Gabi has some great shelving, perfect for idea books, little knick knacks and simple storage that can even add a bit of color to the room. 

Here's a closer look at all the great things on these shelves:

Photo-1_web

To the left of the work space, she has what's called a slat wall, where she can easily display all of her packaged embellishments:

Slatwall1_web

This makes these so easy to find whenever she's looking! This is also most likely the reason her daughter's friends ask to see "your mom's store." 

Here, you can see how her clear jars of flowers are pulling double duty, not just practical, but decorative as well:

Flower-jars_web

And here, you can take a quick peek into the drawers in Gabi's room. Her inks and punches are perfectly housed and easy to reach when Gabi's creating a masterpiece!

Drawer-organizing_web

Since Gabi, like so many designers, loves to create dimensional layouts, she's often asked what she does with them once they're done. While many of these go into an album, she makes a point to rotate new layouts into these frames every few months or so:

Framed-layouts_webs

What a great way to keep your artwork on display. 

What a fabulous and fun little tour of this wonderful space! 

Gabi adds, "I know!  My red chair just does NOT go with the room! LOL!  But it's comfortable!" 

Maybe that chair has creative powers or something...because the projects that come out of here are certainly inspiring! Thanks, Gabi, for giving us the tour!

Handmade Booklet Tutorial {with Anabelle O'Malley}

Anabelle

Today we are so excited to bring you a lovely tutorial by the even lovelier Anabelle O'Malley. 

Anabelle created a little booklet as a thank you gift for a college professor. Her idea was to have everyone sign it for him. It needed to be bigger than a card, with enough space for everyone to write their messages. 

The best part is, Anabelle is going to break the booklet down for us so we can create one of our very own. 

Take it away, Anabelle!
 Thanksbook1_web

Step One: First, I took an 8.5 by 5 piece of cardstock. I scored it at 4 and 4.25 inches and folded it to create the book.
  Tb1_web

Step Two: Cut several pages of white cardstock, 8 by 4.75 inches. Score them at 4 inches.

Tb2_web

Step Three: Lay the papers onto the cover and zig zag stitch them down the middle to secure them.

Tb3_web

Step Four: Now your little booklet is ready to go! I covered the front with the "Our Song" paper from the In Love Collection. Then I added a doily, layered on a transparency frame and added the door cut from a sheet of Everyday Poetry paper.

Tb4_web

Step Five: Next, embellish the cover with a princess petal, some dazzle me gems and a stamped sentiment. Add some lace to the spine and tie some twine around the spine as well.

Tb5_web

And that's it! Take a look at the finished product:

Thanksbook3_web

I love how this booklet can be so versatile.  You could use it to jot down favorite quotes. You could make several and place them on tables at baby showers or weddings for guests to write their comments. Or, you could add your favorite photos and make a brag booklet.

Thanksbook2_web

Whatever you do, it’s bound to turn out lovely!

Swirl_2

We wholeheartedly agree, Anabelle...versatile and beautiful at the same time! You can click on any of the images below to begin shopping for your own In Love product so you can get started on a booklet just like this one!

{4 Fun Ways to Add Stamps} Webster's Pages + Unity Stamp Company

Swap_final_resize

Here we are on the LAST day of our Unity Stamp swap...do you believe it? We hope you've had the chance to stock up on these stamps because they are fabulous...and today we're going to show you more awesome ways to incorporate them onto your pages!

Let's start with this layout from the fabulous Jill Cornell:

Jill_web

Jill's Clean and Simple style is truly highlighted with this adorable Girl Land layout about her little girls. Notice how Jill used the Jump Rope Background stamp to stamp and then heat embossed her images to create a background for her photo?

Jill_close2_web

What a great idea for a multi-colored, visually interesting, textured photo mat! 

Gabrielle Pollacco has a more Classic Webster's style and today she's showing us three different ways to use stamps for an intricate and artistic look:
  Gabi_web

 

Number One: Create a border for your layout by using white ink on the Tea Cup Tag stamp. Simply apply the white stamped image to the edges of dark pink paper for a lovely pop of texture. 
Gabi_close-3_web

Number Two: Create a faded look by covering the Diamond Tag Stamp with ink and then use a napkin to rub away the ink from the edges. You can see how this faded look works to add that little hint of something special:
Gabi-Close2_web

Number Three: Use the Doily Tag from THIS set to create gorgeous, dimensional embellishments. Here, you can see how Gabi stamped the doily stamp onto pattered paper and then used a heart punch to create these adorable embellihsments. She stitch down the center and allowed the edges to pop up for the perfect addition.
