Make It Mondays is a NEW special feature that Erin Lincoln & Nichole Heady have been working on. The Make It Monday challenge series. Every Monday there will be a technique video posted to the PTI YouTube channel by a Papertrey Team Member showcasing a nice balance of basics and new innovations to cater to everyone's skill levels. (The video will also be posted on Nichole's blog every Monday)
There will be a prize involved if you participate in the challenge - normally a free stamp set but this month since it is PTI's anniversary it is a $250 gift certificate. Oh the stamps and supplies I could buy!
Today's concept was the Go-To Sentiment card. This concept utilizes many different sentiments from different sets to make a collage image of you sentiment. I chose to use "Hello, thinking of you, etc" for my card. I am really pleased with how this turned out. I am going to try this again, hopefully tomorrow.
If you are interested in supplies used just ask - too many stamp sets for me to list at the moment. But it sure was fun to go through my sets and see what would work.
The only things that are giving me problems with this card, which I will go back and fix are: my rhinestones are more topaz than chocolate and that bothers the anal OCD matchy matchy side of me and the other is the tiny stamp line I got under one of the hellos - maybe I will put rhinestones there instead.
I have been married to my best friend, James for over 20 years. I feel so entirely blessed to be his wife and the mother of his children. We have two wonderfully sweet boys. They are growing so fast and keep us on our toes. I love to scrapbook, stamp cards and gifts, cook and bake. I really like to pamper my guys. And I would love to some day live a sustainable life style on our own homestead. Cows, chickens, goats, OH MY. A garden with tomatoes, potatoes, and peppers and more. Oh, the dreams I have...
For now, I enjoy crafting my "art" out and reading aloud to all three guys. I so enjoy spending time with my family.
