Yep, 325. We are coming up on our 2 year blog-aversary soon too. So, in honor of our 325th post I think I'll give away a prize...but you'll have to follow along through the post to see what you win! I know, but I couldn't make it tooooo easy could I?!
Tammy sent me this cute card she made using the August Unity Retailer KOTM.
After stamping her image she colored it in with her Copic Spica Glitter Pens then she cut the rectangles using her Spellbinders Rectangle Nestabilities. Mmmm, sweetness is right!
Veronica created a set of canvases, one for each of her boys. They are fabulous!
She basically made them as mirrors of each other and plans to hang them in their rooms. Veronica tucked a touch of Scallop Border in her layers and added some Revolution Flourishes. Now, Veronica is a self-proclaimed "die cut girl" and we've all seen her work so we know this is true. But, like everyone else, once in a while she likes to throw in some Thickers. Veronica used Thickers (which we sell in our convention booth) for the boys' names. It can sometimes be difficult to get your letters, even die cut letters, just where you want them. So, Veronica cut a piece of the plastic packaging that her dies come in and kept it. Then she gently attaches her letters to the plastic sheet and she can see exactly where they will look best without damaging her layout! See...
Not only is this a great tip, but it also helps us to be a little more GREEN by recycling our things for other uses. Thanks for the awesome tip Veronica!
Here's a peek at my calendar/planner page for September.
I started off with some Scenic Route papers, chipboard accents and cardstock sticker. The row of numbers and my birthday are stamps from Unity's Our Life, Our Stories kit. After I stamped the my birthday I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels One Nestabilities. My old planner ran out over a year ago and I'm soooo glad to have one back!
Okay, so are you ready to hear about the blog candy? It's super simple. All you have to do is leave a comment about how you think the die packaging could be re-used. Any ideas on how you could recycle them? You have all week to post and I will choose a winner at random and announce it on Friday's sketch challenge post. The winner will be able to choose a 2x2 die of their choice! How 'bout it?!
We hope you had a great weekend and we're glad you stopped by today! We'll be back on Wednesday, as usual, and we hope you'll have a chance to stop by. See you then!
