-Design must be new
-Project must include Peachy Keen Faces
-Link up by 11:59 pm 7/7

One random winner will receive a $20 Gift Certificate to Peachy Keen Stamps!

This challenge was super fun and also challenging for me!! Neon colors of the 80s are hard to come by in scrapbooking supplies!! I found these pretty papers by Prima in my stash and they worked quite well. They have the neon yellow, orange and lime green that I was thinking of!! I also found the tickets that my mom saved from my graduation ceremony!! Yeah!!!

The Peachy Keen face set I used was Wide Eyed Kids Face Assortment. I thought that was fitting because when I graduated from HS I was Wide Eyed and ready to take on the world....ha ha!!

Don't forget to head on over the the PKS Blog and link up your High School inspired creation!!!

Hansel and Gretel Mini Album

Hi Everyone,
I wanted to post a video that I made about a mini that I made back in April. My nephew was in a musical, it was his first. He played a raccoon in the story of Hansel and Gretel. It was a sweet musical. I had to make him a special album to remember the day and all the hard work he (and his classmates) put into the musical!

The New Anyday Stamps!!

The stamp that I'm featuring is
PK-289 Mitsy Sue and Colby Cheer Up Set and PK-291 Sampler Package of Faces

These stamps are genius, you can swap the faces. So if you dont want your little Colby mouse to be sad, swap out his face and make him surprised! It's amazing!!

Here's how it works...easy peasy!!

I start off by stamping the section I want to mask onto a post-it. Masking is the technique of stamping sections of one stamp. In this case I want my finished stamp image to be the mouse's body and not his little sad face.

Next, I cut out the face. The post-it note is sticky on the back and I place it onto my paper where I want to stamp my mouse body.

Then, I ink up my Peachy Keen Stamp and stamp the body over the post-it note face. This allows me to pick up the post-it and the face of the mouse is blank.

Lastly, I take my PKS Sampler Mouse face and stamp it into the little mouse body!

Here are a couple of cards I made using this technique!

I used a sharp pair of scissors and my exacto knife to cut around the little mouse!

I've decided that it's time to bring Quilling back in a new fresh way!! :)

Your next stop on the HOP is Kim over at Paper Punch Addiction!!
