Our Craft Lounge Blog Hop with Candy

DSCF6410
Welcome to another Our Craft Lounge Blog Hop. I hope you have enjoyed all the Valentine sneaks the past few days.

I have a fun set to show you today and to give away! The set I used is Life Is. This is great for scrapbooking but also works great for cards.

For my scrapbook page, I used 4 different stamps from the set on just the title! If you look real closely you’ll see what I used by comparing it to the panel below. I’m not going to tell you right now what I used. I also used the ‘circle dot’ from Life Is and the two ‘circles’ from The Journey (also a new release from Our Craft Lounge that works great with Life Is) to make my own design paper on the brown cardstock.

To get my shapes, I traced a ClearScrap shape onto the brown cardstock and cut it out. I then used another stencil (Lotus) on the Mulberry design paper. Cut that out also and added faux stitching to all the layers. Made a scallop frame for the picture.

I just love this picture of my kids and I during my pregnancy with #4 (in '06) and hence the title of the page {Life Is Precious}. So, have you figured out what stamps I used for the title? I used Life Is, Precious, the row of dots and this symbol {. Yes, there is a label in the set that already uses those images but I wanted mine just a little bigger. That’s the beauty of this set, you can make the label any size you want. (of course you don’t have to use the pieces that way too) The title is attached to the page with Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots to give it some dimension.

I also did a card using Life Is and The Journey. (told you these sets work great together!) The words “You are” are from The Journey. The label and “Fabulous” is from Life Is. The Limited Supply247 was posted way early as Long and Tall cards. I decided to do a quick small tall card.

I used design paper from My Mind’s Eye. It’s double sided so I used both sides and added ribbon to the middle. Stamped the wording/label in Distress Ink worn lipstick and cut it out. Layered it onto brilliant blue that was cut with the oval nestabilities. Added some crystal stickers to the top and bottom edges.

Hi, Merely came back here to remind you about Mobile Monopoly. It is a superb technique and WILL make you money, especially seeing as you own a website. Take a quick look at the video, the strategy is about using Mobile Advertising which is completely new and an unexposed marketplace where you can make thousands by doing hardly any work. I assure you that after you watch their short video it will change you and it will start making you think. http://mobile-mastermind.com
