A big hello to everyone and happy Friday!!! I am so glad that the weekend is almost here. I have been extremely busy at work this week and can't wait for Saturday! I have a ton of stuff to take care of around the house, and more important, I have a few layouts ready to be worked on. Now what should I do? Housework or layouts? We all know the answer to this question --- LAYOUTS!
Here is my DT project for Frosted Designs. This week's challenge is to use background stamping. Now I will admit that I have a drawer full of stamps, most of which, infact all, that I never use. I have tons of ink pads also. Those I do use for inking my layouts. I thought to myself, okay Debbie, pick out a stamp and stamp the background. Well it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. First of all, most of the stamps that I put on the acrylic block were crooked. Second, I did not apply enough pressure when stamping. So after four tries, I settled for the fifth, which I did have to touch up. I give a big KUDOS to all of you out there that use stamps! I found a pack of stamps all related to Autumn, and I had these adorable pictures of my kids back from 1992 playing in the leaves.
I used my Cricut George cartridge to cut out the photo frame. The title was cut using Quickutz Studio mini alphabet. The cute little tree is chipboard by Pink Paislee, and the felt flowers and leaves are Jillibean Soup.
I also used my Fiskars scallop border punch. The little houses and trees at the top were cut out from Die Cuts With A View Green Stack.
