January 2011 Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Again we are stamping through to the new year with our stamp of the month blog hop!
You should be coming from Jen Patrick's blog - if not, keep hopping and you'll do a complete circle - check out what others have came up with for this new stamp set. and please leave a comment - we love comments!

This month it's Find Your Style D1452 - I love the Shoe and the Dress Form and well, ALL of these stamps!
I'm giving you a sneak peek at one of the projects that I'll be teaching at my weekend retreat NEXT WEEKEND!!! (still room - come along!)  Using our new Flip Flaps I created extra panels making two pages super sized!

Above is when the panels are closed.
 Left Side Close Up above
 Right Side Close Up above
 
 8 x 12 Flip Flap Panel opened up on Left Side - these Flip Flaps attach to the sheet protectors!  They add more room while still protecting your photos from fingers!
 Right Side Opened Up - 4 x 12 Flip Flap
 This stamp is also part of the set - love the phrase.
 You really can't see the color too much - I used a blending pen to color the words in so that each word stands out. You rub the pen onto the ink pad and it picks up some color and then you color the paper with it - it's a very lite/soft process - almost like water coloring.  I also bent the wings up and these are glued on the outside of the sheet protectors for dimension.

The paper is Wings - January/Febrary's (new catty) paper - so another sneak peek you are getting!

Thanks for looking and now check out Melinda Everitt's Blog to see more!

  2. Nice layout and great use of the flip flaps - I enjoyed seeing what layouts you used for the inside of the flip flaps.

    Great way to accent a word in the butterfly!
