Photograph & Remember!

  Hi Crafting Friends!

I can't believe we are half way through the year - time is flying!

Today I am sharing some vintage tags using stamps and stencils available in the store along with vintage collage elements and bits and pieces.

I made the tags backgrounds with stencils, texture paste and Lindy's Magical.
Stencils used: 
Eye Stencil & Blocks Pattern both designed by Dead Sea Toons

Stamps used:
"Dots" on tag background from the Half Sheet Numbers & Flowers
Window Frame stamped onto white card and fussy cut

I then added Tim Holtz vintage "heads', some vintage ephemera, hessian, lace, acetate embellishments - they are a bit of a mix of vintage and modern which I love!

***Remember to us the code BPMSharon at the store for 15% off ***

Note: you can use the code at either the IBFS Store OR the BPM Store - why not do an order from each and increase your stash!

Coach Gift Card Holder

  Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here!

 Today I am using some amazing products from Blank Page Muse.

I Brake for Stamps: Mostly Phrases

The end of the school year means its time to give gifts to special teachers and coaches.
So I decided to create a card for a lacrosse coach.

Create a card using assorted papers.
Add a small paper bag to the card and stamp the phrase.

Add a die cut lacrosse stick across the paper bag and insert a gift card.

The full tutorial can be found on my blog.

Thanks for stopping by.

Sea Turtle Card

 Hello from design team member, Heidi.  Summer is here and bring on the beachy crafting!  One of my favorite stamp sets for this is I Brake for Stamp’s By the Sea Rubber Sheet.  It has fun images, especially this Turtle, in two sizes.

How I made this card was by first sponging blue ink over the center of my white card.  I used the same ink to stamp several of the little stamps on the back ground. I think I used the shell, the seahorse and the fish.  Then I splattered some water drops over top.

Second, I used a blue cardstock and die-cut it to a rectangle. I sponged the same blue ink around the edges here. I stamped and colored the turtle on white.  I trimmed it out.  I then added my sentiment and put the turtle right front and center.

I like to be able to mail flat cards, so I didn’t add anything else, but this card would look great with some knotted twin.

I hope you are enjoying your summer and summer crafting!
