Every technique I know project! Step One...

Good Evening fellow papercrafters!  I am going to undertake a small project... I am going to find one stamp and try every technique I have learned over the past several years!  Stay tuned!  We are going to try embossing, water colors, viva d├ęcor 3D stamp ink, chalks, perfect pearls, metallic rubs, colored pencils and gamsol, foil & flocking/glitter, and whatever else I can get my hands on!

So, step one... admit you have a paper-crafting addiction.

I can't wait to start... but for tonight, I need to catch up on my beauty sleep!  Good Night!

Step two... pick a stamp!

Aluminum foil!

Fold aluminum foil several times and the run through an embosser...I used my sizzix.  I then rubbed stazon over the raised image... Oh the possibilities!

A fun Friday night!

Apparently it was a 'brown' night!  Tried a bunch of be ideas and techniques....
...didn't figure out embossing and then adding glitter.... But we'll figure it out!

I tried the Stampin' up pastels for the flower.  I think I like them!

I think I love this!

Trying to make my own embellishments... was happy to have the cricut on hand tonight!

I have spent some time looking at designs and trying new techniques.  I should never have gone to the Heirloom's Rubber Stamp and Art Festival at the Big E with Mom on 6-2-13.

I have created several scrapbooks since I emerged myself in 2007.  I have made 6x6, 7x7, 8x8, 6x11, 12x12, and 11x15 albums.  I have used photo albums and Project Life kits.  Below are some photos of my my favorite scrapbook pages.
