{ Gratitude Memorydex challenge }

 I wanted to share my #gratitudememorydexchallenge on Instagram. You can follow me there and you can follow the hashtag. I am creating little videos to show how I created each card. Memorydex is back in style and available at Blush rolodex spinner is available exclusively at along with other items like the memorydex hole punch and dies

I have been participating in another memorydex  Instagram challenge hosted by Damaris @atstudiod and Caroline @caroline_mae_m since January. You can see my original post HERE. In that post I am sharing rolodex cards I created in my Silhouette Studio (freebies).

This is my cover for the Memorydex gratitude challenge. I have gathered various "fall" items from my stash (see below). 


I have been creating these little cards and writing down what I am grateful daily. I am getting creative with tucking a journaling tag or card somewhere on the memorydex. I created envelopes in my Silhouette Studio. I had lost of questions on Instagram on where to find these. I am sharing them here. You just need to punch holes at the bottom.

{ Traveler's Notebook storage holder }

 I have designed my own holder for Traveler's Notebooks. I have been subscribing to Studio Calico TN kits and this is my second year. I store TNs in each pouch that they come with, but that just became too much trouble to find and get out. I searched on line for a template of some sort and couldn't find anything. I created my own. I first made one on the right by cutting cardstock. Then, I drew my design is Silhouette Studio and cut out the pieces with my Cameo. I shared this photo on Instagram and got requests to share it. See below for file.

I cut a piece of patterned paper and wrapped it around the base of the one on the right. That required 2 pieces of 12" patterned paper and they overlap. For the one on the left I designed to cut a piece just for the front since that is the part you see. In addition, I have a square pice that fits on the bottom. I used it as a template and cut it out from a heavier piece of carboard to make it more sturdy.

I was able to fit a bunch, however, they are not all full yet. Once they become filled with photos and embellishments I can maybe get six  or eight in. I will see. Totally random width was chosen based on my own preference.

{ Impression Obsession DT Challenge – Autumn Colors }

 Hello and welcome to our Impression Obsession challenge – Autumn colors.

Here is my card.

For this card I went with layers. Lots of layers. The base is yellow and white paint with a few drops of Color Shine. Next, I stamped splatters and grunge circle. I layered die cut tags and a circle with leaves. I used foam adhesive from Therm O Web to add dimension. I added die cut "thanks" for my sentiment and finished the card with pearls and twine.

Have a great Thursday!

{ Impression Obsession - Die Cut Obsession }

 Hello and welcome to Die Cut Obsession. We have set aside a couple days to share some fabulous new Impression Obsession die projects! Have fun checking out what our Designers have made today. Today's participants can be found on the Impression Obsession Blog.

Here is my card. 

For this card I started stamping the background with Silhouette 15 (butterflies) in Peach ink.
I embossed a piece of vellum with tiny dots. The tag is die cut from patterned paper. I layered die cut tag with die cut "thanks".  I tucked in a little stamped striped image in orange ink. The butterflies are die cut from yellow cardstock: Fancy Butterfly and Medium Butterflies. I added an orange bow and enamel dots.

I hope you love this card as much as I do. Make sure to stop by Impression Obsession Blog for links to other Design Team creations.

Product Retirement Sale
In our 20 year history, we have rarely discontinued products. The time has come as our warehouse is full and we want to be able to bring in new clear stamp sets and dies, but there's no room. On our site we have several categories with AMAZING deals. The clear stamps and dies are all 50% off and we have an entire section where you can buy a clear set and get the matching dies FREE (these dies are up to a $25 value and most are on this higher end, so it's a great deal).


NEW! Digital Stamps
Digital stamps? What are those? Digital stamps are high resolution graphics files that you can download and print on your home printer. You can then color them in and use them just as you would rubber stamps.

Our original artist, Gary Robertson, draws very detailed pen and ink images that are perfect for using this way. Why would you want digital stamps instead of rubber stamps? Well, they are significantly less expensive. They are also instant gratification. When you order them you receive an email to download them immediately. We love our rubber stamps and there are many techniques you can't do with digital stamps that you can do with rubber, but these are an amazingly affordable option.

We have made 12 of our Gary Robertson stamps available for FREE so you can try them out before you invest money in them. We are also incredibly excited to offer you dozens of FREE digital stamps from Lindsay Ostrom and Nola Chandler which are uplifting and fun designs perfect to use in this time of social distancing.
