    1. I'm back and feeling INSPIRED :)

      Although I'm subscribed to both you and Picket Fence Studios, getting wonderful project posts delivered via email, I cannot comment on the PFS blog. I have tried and tried but still cannot not see comments or add my comments to the PFS blog posts. I did visit Michelle Lupton's blog and left a comment for her about the delightful card she shared for Day 1 on the PFS blog. As I can't comment on the PFS blog, could you please send them a BIG THANK YOU for the INSPIRATION and for co-hosting the blog hop?
      Thank You :)

  36. Thanks for a fun hop. Just like Tracy above, I had trouble commenting on the PFS blog. I did enter a comment in the Review pane, but am not sure that was the way it should be done, and it also automatically created an account as wel as adding me to the subscriber's list without me realizing it.

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…
