Hello again, Technique Tuesday fans!
I’ve got another pocket page-friendly Story Card to share with you.
Please say hello to this week’s card.
Like many of the Story Cards we feature on Sundays, this one is pocket page-friendly. It would also look swell on a traditional scrapbook page. You could also use it on a greeting card, but you may want to change out the words to suit your needs.
Let me show you how you can make one like it.
Layer the two tags on top of each other so the bottom tag shows slightly. Adhere the tags to the base card. Add the two blank arrows to the card.
Mount the “Look” arrow on top of one of the blank arrows.
Use the Scrapbook It set to stamp “Taken:” on one of the blank arrows. Cut a strip of cardstock to lay across the Story Card. Stamp a sentiment from the stamp set on it.
Finish the Story Card by writing the date onto it. Not a fan of your handwriting? Consider using our Many Months stamp set to stamp the date out.
I’ll be back again next week with another Story Card. Hope to see you then.
PS. Looking for a deal? How about 12 of them? You'll find 12 stamp sets on our Sale page. All 12 are 50% off.

Like the watercolor look? Well, check out this gorgeous card by Lisa Adametz!
Lisa created an amazing watercolor background for her card and then embellished it by adding circle frames cut with Technique Tuesday's Circles steel dies. You can create your own circle frames by die-cutting several large circles and then using a smaller circle die to cut the centers out of them.
And how pretty are the flowers? Lisa stamped them with the Dogwood - Greenhouse Society stamp set, colored them in and then fussy cut them with her scissors. Love it!
Like Lisa's style? Guess what? You are going to see a lot more of her work. Lisa has joined our team and will be contributing projects made with our Greenhouse Society stamp sets. Hooray! Welcome, Lisa!
Do you keep a planner? Do you like to use stickers in your planner?
Well, have I got a fun trick for you! Consider making your stickers ahead of time by die-cutting them from vinyl with Technique Tuesday’s DIY Steel Dies.
I used self-adhesive vinyl (typically used to digitally cut words and shapes) that I found in rolls at a craft store. I cut some small pieces of vinyl out and temporarily stuck them onto my die-cutting plate with Washi tape. This helped to keep the vinyl from curling as I cut it.
When finished, I ended up with a whole bunch of stickers to use in my planner.
When you do this at home, consider making a bunch ahead of time and then storing them in a small bag until you are ready to use them. That way, when it comes time to work on your planner, you have done a lot of the work ahead of time.

It’s time yet again for another installment of Story Card Sunday.
This week’s pocket page-friendly Story Card is a fun one to use to document friendships.
Here’s how you can make one like it.
Start by cutting a base from a wood or kraft paper with the base of the Clipboard steel dies. You’ll also want to cut a clip and two papers (also from the Clipboard dies) from cardstock.
Now, we are going to do a little in-cutting. Take one of the papers and set the row of arrows from the Clipboard dies on it. Use a little Washi tape to hold it in place.
You'll notice my block got kinda messy when I stamped. That's because I rocked the block. Try to keep your block level when you stamp to avoid messy block issues. It will also help with you to obtain evenly stamped impressions.
After you've finished stamping, use highlighter pens to make some of the words stand out.
That is it for this week’s Story Card. Hope to see you again next week!
