Tim Holtz Embossing Folders

For my Creative Team reveal at A Cherry On Top I got to play with some amazing Tim Holtz Embossing folders. This was my first time and now I'm hooked! Need to go shopping for my embossing folders. ;)

One technique that I love to play around with is embossing. For my reveal I didn't want to just emboss, I wanted to go an extra step with my embossing. First I started with some awesome Tim Holtz Texture Fades (embossing folders) and then I added some ink, played with some Perfect Pearls Mists and Glimmer Mists, and even did a little sanding. If you have not yet tried embossing folders then you need to. It is so much fun and I love the texture it brings to your projects.

Back To School!

August 16, 2011 is back to school day for my kids. I can not believe that I have a 4th grader and a freshman now. They are growing up too fast! So here are some photos showing off my beautiful kids. They are rocking the new clothes, new shoes and of course new backpacks. LOL!

Then I caught Erik in a huge yawn. LOL!

Which of course made Marissa yawn. LMAO! I love these two! ;)

We R Memory Keepers Friends Furever

On May 27, 2010 we adopted this cute little dog, we named her Gracie. When the We R Memory Keepers Friends Furever line hit the ACOT shop I knew it was the perfect line to scrap our pictures of Gracie. This line has awesome pattern papers. They are all double sided except the Collars paper and Nine Lives paper, which are both glitter accented. Besides having awesome papers this line has die cut tags, chipboard tags, clear stamps, cardstock stickers, fabric brads, chipboard words, metal charms, a 4x6 pad, a 6x6 pad, glitter brads, twill ribbon, textured cardstock, and even a Page Kit. This line has it all!! A must have for all of you pet lovers out there.
