Score! A WOW! Layout

Hello, Wow fans! Anne here today with a layout I created using Wow! Embossing Powders. I have been promising my sweet grandson that I would do a layout using some of his football photos and I did exactly that for this project.  I usually prefer making more feminine pieces but I have so many men in my life that I find myself doing almost as many masculine or androgynous pieces as I do feminine ones.

My grandson has been playing league football for a couple of years now and I have decided it would be a cute idea to make a layout for each year that he plays.  Now watch... he'll decide he doesn't want to play anymore! LOL!  These photos are actually from this past season but I have some really cute ones from his first year as well so look for another football layout in the future!



I know that most scrappers don't think of using embossing powders on their layouts but let me tell ya, you really should give them a try.  I used only the basic Opaque Bright White and Primary Ebony on this one (their team colors were black, red and white) but I could have used Cable Car Red and Metallic Silver just as easily. The parts I embossed are the black sideline stripes, the jersey number and year and the chipboard letters for the title.

For all of you sports moms and grandmoms, scrapping all those sports pictures is lots of fun and very rewarding as the kiddos seem to really enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoy making them.  I'm waiting on photos from this boy's martial arts classes so I can do a layout with them too.  I really need to make two of each one of these pages; one to frame for his room and the other for me to keep!

Please visit my blog for more photos and information on this layout.  Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy crafting!
Anne

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.


For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.




The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…

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:



STEP ONE

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…
