Extra Styles


My crafting resolutions:
1. To create more than 50% of my projects with either recycled materials or scrap left over materials to cut waste and excessive earth fillers.
2. Teach paper crafting classes and share the Joy.
3.Custom Design Products I love to use and share.
4. Learn everyday what it takes to be patient, understanding, tolerant and giving.

Last but not least, my candy is still available!  If you would like the wedding dress die from the Whimsy Stamps April Release, click here  and good luck!  This candy will close when I've reached 450 followers. :)

So, on to my project today,  after the release monthly over at Whimsy Stamps Inspiration Blog, we are having a review day to show you a few more project created with the beautiful new images available by the Whimsy artists.  I've worked with Crissy Armstrongs's "Look Hoo's Graduating" image and some other dies as well.  I used Royal Coat dimensional liquid on the lenses for this little guy and the colorless blender and a shaky little hand for the feathery look on his coat.  Hope you enjoy it too!

I used Bazzill embossed stock and sanded the flowers out! Then I decided the Card needed a sentiment so I added 3 to the inside and 4 more on the outside.  NOW the projects is truly finished.

These templates can help you make any project just the way you like it. Over and Over again! The NEW Shape "EZ" cut files are available today!
