Easy week....

This week has seemed to be pretty easy even though its a rare week where my husband doesnt have a single day off. I have been getting a lot done :-)

I made this layout just to use up older supplies. I HAD to have this Urban Lilly paper that is so darn cute and I had not used it until now! The tag (100% Quality) came off a pair of jeans.


These layouts using Scenic Route is for a contest at Create My Keepsake. The contest theme is to scrapbook your street/town/city.

I wanted to keep this page simple, and just focus on the picture.

**no your not crazy....a layout right here was deleted because it is going to be published...If you came back for inspiration from that layout I am sorry**

I made this panoramic picture last September, finally using it :-)



These are for Tin Box Creations. I used the stamp sets
Everyday (alphabet), Explore and, Romeo.

Techniques:
* Stamp image on a piece of paper over and over again, then trace letters and cut out. I did this with the word “WORLD.” I first stamped the paper with the map stamp and cut the words out from that. I went around the edges with a black sharpie to bring out the letters on the light background paper.



Techniques:
* I placed the letters (from the Everyday alphabet stamp set) on an acrylic block the way I wanted it, to line them up I put a piece of small grid paper under the acrylic block and used the grids to help line up the letters.
*To make the angel (from the Romeo stamp set) face the opposite direction then the stamp sets I stamped the image on a transparency and flipped it around so the arrow would be facing to the right instead of to the left.



Techniques:
* I first stamped the back of the tags with the map stamp using Staz-on ink. I did this so I could still use Black ink on the front of the tag and not have the map design and my words mesh into each other. This way the map is faded and the words on the front of the tags are readable.
* I embossed the words on the front of the tag. Both words from the explore stamp set.
* after stamping and embossing the compass image I used an H2O pen and added
