February's set is still available for purchase. You can get it for a limited-time through our Web site and some retailers. Check with your favorite retailer to see if they have it in stock or to ask them to get in.

You can also sign up through our Web site for our membership program to have our Greenhouse Society stamp sets shipped to you automatically every month. Instead of paying $12.99 for each new Greenhouse Society stamp set, Greenhouse Society members pay $9.99 for the current month's set and each new Greenhouse Society set released while they are members. They also receive reduced shipping and other benefits.

Spotlight: Lori Vliegen's stamps

On your mark. Get set. Get ready from some "stamp-tastic" inspiration from the Technique Tuesday Creative Team.

We are teaming up to shine a spotlight today on the stamps of Lori Vliegen.

Technique Tuesday released eight stamps sets from Lori at the CHA-Winter trade show last month. Lori, an altered book artist, brings a light, whimsical and classical style to TT with her hand drawn stamp sets. These sets will appeal to the memory keeper, card maker and altered book artist.

Here's a look at three of those eight stamp sets.

Make Your Own Flair with Technique Tuesday Stamps

Truth: I am a DIY-type of gal.

I love using embellishments on scrapbook pages and cards, and I really love making them myself.

Lately, I've been making a lot of Flair buttons for my projects.

2_TT_XoxoFlairClose_teri
See those circles? That what I call Flair!

I love making my own Flair with a couple Technique Tuesday stamp sets: With Flair and Fun Flair by Ali Edwards.

Technique-Tuesday-With-Flair-Clear-Stamps-Medium Technique-Tuesday-Fun-Flair-Ali-Edwards-Clear-Stamps-Medium

The process is really easy!

Start by stamping out a couple of the images. (All of the stamps in these two sets work great with a 1" circle punch.)

FlairStep1_teri

FlairStep2_teri

If you are using an image like the circle with the heart that I am, you are going to want to stamp it one more time with a different color of ink.

FlairStep3_teri
Use your scissors to cut the heart out and then adhere it to your circle.

FlairStep4_teri
Now, adhere a clear Epoxy circle sticker (I found these at the local craft store) on top of the circle. If you can't find circle stickers, add a few layers of Glossy Accents. Be sure to let the Glossy Accents dry completely before adding additional layers.

FlairStep5_teri

Use glue to adhere your completed Flair to your card or scrapbook page!

Join Us for Our 1st Online Class!

I am so excited to invite you to our first online class! Many of you have taken our classes at scrapbook conventions and know how much we like sharing new techniques and project ideas. Now you can enjoy the same great learning experience without having to pack up all your supplies, find parking, and put up with the 24 inches of table space during class. Instead, you will be able to watch each step as I make the projects, ask questions right through your computer, and use your own tools in the comfort of your own home. Plus you can watch the class recording again, at your own pace at any time.
Here are some of the projects we will be making during the class:
