Our With us Wednesday for today...

is a special one because our guest's project was based on last Friday's sketch. I'm showing you early because I have a very special post for you this Friday and there will not be a sketch this week.

Our guest this Wednesday is our friend, Shar. Look at her awesome layout!

She used the Quickutz Mini Daisies, Revolution Branches, Label and! Her large flowers were stamped with Making Memories foam stamps then cut out by hand. This is a wonderful interpretation of the sketch!

Tammy also saved her version of the sketch to share with you today. Check it out...

Isn't that a gorgeous photo?! Tammy used a Unity Stamp for her title and added some flowers and bling. Just beautiful!

Veronica has also been playing with her Unity Stamps and she has a tutorial for us to show us how to create a stunning background with your stamps. First, take a look at her finished layout.

For the first step, you'll need your background cardstock/paper, stamps, embossing ink or Versamark, clear embossing powder and a heat/embossing gun.

Stamp your image onto your cardstock/paper, cover it with the clear embossing powder, tap off the excess and heat emboss.

Next, you'll need a mini-mister with a little water in it and your choice of re-inker.

After you mix your ink and water, mist your paper over the area you stamped and embossed.

Allow it to dry a bit then you're ready to complete your layout. Here's a closeup view...

It may seem like alot but it really is super simple. If you decide to give this a try, be sure to share a picture of your project with us!

Now check out this COLORFUL layout from Jenn!

She cut the title with her Silhouette using a true type font called "Waltograph" and offset it at 2 different sizes to get the double mat. She also used the Revolution Photo Corners and the retired Bottlecaps. The paper Jenn used is from the Sassafras Lass Anthem collection. What a great layout!

Thanks for stoppin' by today! Don't forget to check in Friday for PJ's special project! Enjoy the rest of your week and we'll see you then!

Oh my goodness. I'm going to have to get some ink and a mister. This technique is beautiful!

Jenn I love the title treatment on your disney page. Great way to really make it pop.
