The party is not over yet, friends! There are still a few days left of National Stamping Month, and what better way to celebrate this creative outlet than with a giveaway that is sure to get you stamping your art out! <3
First, and foremost, you can’t get your stamping started without a stamp—so we’re going to give you one! Five lucky winners will receive a set of our My Acrylix® Holiday Borders, free!!
Whatever the occasion, mix and match these versatile, holiday-inspired borders with patterned papers, Complements, embellishments, or even each other, to create delightful borders, backgrounds, and textures.
To go along with this stamp set, those same five winners will also receive the recommended 1″ x 6½” My Acrylix® block on which to mount their new borders! (Lucky stampers! 🙂 )
Now lets, see…we’ve got a stamp set, a block to mount the stamps on….what else is there?
Only one of the five winners, the luckiest of the lucky, will also receive this kit along with the stamp set and acrylic block.
To enter the giveaway, make sure you’re subscribed to this blog and then tell us in the comments below what you’re looking forward to creating this upcoming holiday season, even if it’s not with paper. Our five winners will be selected tomorrow, September 26, at 3:00 p.m. MDT, and notified via e-mail (they will not get posted here).
But, wait—there’s more! Make sure to also follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see how else we’re celebrating National Stamping Month!
When you think about using Cricut® flowers on your scrapbooking, you probably think of something like this…
…a large flower cluster in a corner, or maybe a wreath. This certainly is a beautiful way to embellish a page, but have you ever thought about making your Cricut® flowers itty bitty?
While large flowers create a dramatic focal point, mini-sized flowers add a certain daintiness to your artwork.
To create the littlest flowers on this page, we actually used the inside pieces from the other daisies on the page. Aren’t they so cute and sweet? 🙂
Mini Cricut®-cut flowers also work really well on cards. You can use them to frame your stamping, and when you use layered images like these, you get lots of extra dimension.
Another great thing about mini flowers is that you have more flexibility for arranging them on your page. We love the idea of creating custom borders with these little flowers, like you see on the page above. It creates such a beautiful accent and draws the eye in to the photos.
What do you think about this technique? Tell us in the comments below!
The release of another great idea book means we have an excuse to share even more artwork! When it comes to memory keeping, we know that each person takes a unique approach. We love to see beautiful, high-level artwork, but we know that it isn’t always realistic to add all the bells and whistles to every layout. After all, soccer practice, piano recitals, family meals, and all those other demands are important, too! Today’s artwork celebrates a style of memory keeping that is less elaborate, but no less lovely.
The beauties below are all done with just a few ingredients: B&T Duos™ papers and selected embellishments—no stamping required!
