Emojis Stamp Set & Dies | Technique Tuesday

Don't you just love emojis?

They convey so much meaning & emotion, and they have really become part of how we communicate.

😊😍😋

Those are some of my favorites.

And now you can add those fantastic little symbols to your documenting!


These darling new Emojis Stamp Set & Emojis Crafting Dies from Technique Tuesday are the perfect additions to your collection!

Wanna see how I've used them on a couple of projects?

These three little designs say everything you need to know about this spread...


And the "heart eyes" design is the perfect way to express how I feel about that photo...



Here's how I used the bundled set (both the emoji stamps & the dies) to create a card and some coordinating confetti...


This was so quick & easy to make...I just chose my stamp designs and my ink colors, and got to work.


Then I typed out a quick sentiment and adhered it to the card.


Next came the fun part...creating all of the confetti to put inside my card.

I decided to keep my dies all connected so that I didn't have a bunch of small little emoji dies running around getting lost...so I did have to sort out the happy faces from the die cuts...but that was no big deal.

Love both the stamps & the dies and feel you can't live without them?

Save money when you bundle them!

From my TN - The Grand Canyon

I'm sitting here in my computer room...freezing my a$$ off...in the middle of a Chicagoland winter (which, in all fairness, has been incredibly mild - but still...winter)...looking at this photo of my daughter and her friends at The Grand Canyon last July (yes...Arizona in July)...and wishing desperately for some heat and sunshine.

I was putting this TN spread together the other day, and I was just so inspired by the colors in the photograph...the tans & browns, teals & yellows.



They are just so warm and desert-y you know?

They're really making me look forward to summer's long, hot days.

I decided to accent those wonderful colors using these ephemera pieces from the Fancy Pants Designs Good Ol' Days collection...


...and I think that, even though the collection has a more all-American summer/back-to-school vibe, I found some pieces that really work with my layout!

I printed my photo at a width of 6" and then cut it to allow it to fit across the fold in my book.

I find that I sometimes struggle with creating notebook layouts that differ from one another because of the notebook's smaller size. 

But, changing up my photo size definitely helps to keep things interesting.


The horizontal phrase die-cuts, placed vertically alongside (and slightly overlapping) my photo also add to the visual interest of the spread.

And my favorite part of the whole thing?

The little rubber globe from the Good Ol' Days Silicone Shapes set.


Seriously adorable, right?

I don't normally like to add a lot of bulk to my notebooks, but I just couldn't resist this time.

A few lines of journaling...documenting the who, where & when...and this spread was done!

Just a few more months until summer...I can't wait...

Valentine's Day | Handmade Stamped Cards

Good morning, good morning!

Happy February!

Today I'm sharing some Valentine's Day cards I created using some of Kerri Bradford's new stamps.
Handmade Stamped Valentine's Day Cards
If you've never bought any of Kerri's stamps, well then, you're definitely missing out.

This girl has THE BEST designs.

Here are a couple of her newest...Thick + Thin, Borderlines, & Me & You

And here are the cards I created with them...

I created these cards using pre-made 5x7 cards that I just cut right down the middle - making two 5x3.5 cards.

For the envelopes I did the same exact thing...just cut straight down the middle of a 5x7 envelope to create two new envelopes.


After adding the cards to the envelopes, I used a little piece of washi to hold the envelope tops closed...easy peasy.
