Tidbit Tuesday

Challenge yourself to use traditional supplies in non-traditional ways.  Use colors you don't normally choose, combine patterned paper that isn't part of the same palette, use brads or eyelets in unusual ways.  Be brave; it will push your creativity to fresh, new levels.

I wanted to make something that showed that this set can be used for more than just family photos. The card has a cut out on the front where the stamped image peeks through. The sentiment is simple and could be used for many occasions.

August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop










Welcome to August's Stamp of the Month blog hop! This month we are showcasing "What a Hoot" a set of  17 stamps and have over 60 consultants participating for lots of inspiration!  If you are coming from Krista's blog, you are on the right track. It's okay if you are starting here; just be sure to complete the circle so you don't miss any of the wonderful projects my fellow consultants have created.











The card I made this month:








This was an easy and quick card to make and I'm happy with the results.  I used a "Designer Creations slate paper bag" for my envelope and dressed it up with a band that hints of what's inside. The card was made using "Thistle" cardstock (what a beautiful new color!) and B&T from the "Scaredy Cat" paper pack; just two of the beautiful papers in our new Annual Inspirations Idea Book.









Now hop along to Maria's blog to enjoy more great artwork. If you get lost along the way, you can find the full list of bloggers here. Don't forget this set will only be available for the month of August. Contact your consultant or go here to order yours today!

Ask someone else to journal in your scrapbook for a change of pace. You will treasure the thoughts and handwriting of your children, friends, and relatives; and another perspective adds depth of interest.

If the colors in your photos are clashing with the colors you want to use in your layout, consider changing your photos to black and white.  This is easily accomplished with photo editing software or a quick trip to the store.
