I Do. . . .

Happy Thursday to everyone and welcome to day 5 of the WOW! Love and Valentines Blog Hop! This is our very first week long blog hop and we are very excited you have stopped by. If you are visiting for the first time this week be sure to go back and check out the amazing projects created by some of my fellow DT members from the first four days.

For today's post I am going to share with you a sneak peak at a mini album I created for the hop! A few weeks ago I was given this amazing heart shaped mini album that has pages made from canvas, acrylic, and chipboard. I thought it was one of the neatest mini albums I had seen and couldn't wait to work with it. I decided to use it to create a second wedding album.

In the album I used Bright White, Whirly Pop, Pepper, Gold Rich, and Gold Rich Metallic High embossing powders. I also used the Brocade Background and Gratitude stamp sets.

If you want to see the full album be sure to visit my blog.

Don't forget to come back Friday to see a sneak by Jen Deal and our Team Post.  And before you leave today be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win an awesome prize! Winners will be announced on Saturday, February 18th.

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.

I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!

Here are brief instructions on how to make it:


Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…

Happy memories - embossed background

I must admit I was having a bit of a problem coming up with a memory keeping project for this months post. I have been making almost only cards lately and had a bit of a problem filling a whole layout. I do make some layouts and lately I've been partial to letter sized layouts because the format remind me of cards and makes it easier for me to plan the page. This time I made a A4 sized layout because it's easier for me to find the page protectors in regular stores here. I used some good cardstock that doesn't warp much when you heat it or add water since i knew I would emboss it.
Here's what I did. I picked the pretty Chrysanthemum background stamp and embossed it in Silver Pearl embossing powder three times in a row across the background. I must admit I was more than a little inspired by Isha Guptas cards for her guest post earlier this week. I used distress inks in Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon and applied with an ink blending tool randomly over the embossed are…
