December 2012

Happy (almost) 2013!

Wow! 2012 sure flew by!

It seems like it just got here.

We're getting the party started a little early at Technique Tuesday today with some New Year's Eve inspired projects from Linda, Ashley and Teri!

The three of them got in the party mood with some inspiration from this party scene.


Take it away, girls!

Saying Thank You

I love making cards, but it seems like I never have a thank you card when I need it!

And now that Christmas has passed, I find myself in serious need of sitting down to make some thank you notes to sent out for gifts I received from family members and special friends this year.

Leave it to Daniela, Laura, Ashley and Teri to save my bacon. They've come up with some fun and clever cards that nicely say thank you.

(By Laura O'Donnell. Made with THX Seal and Chevrons Two Step.)

I'm feeling some scraplifting coming on. Thanks for the inspiration, ladies!

That's Bling-tastic!

It was once said that a little bling never hurt a thing.

So we thought we'd put that theory to the test.

We sent some members of our Creative Team a pack of red rhinestones, and we challenged them to use them on a project to share with you today.

We think you will find the results to be absolutely bling-tastic! Take it away, team!

Round-up: December Daily 2012 by Ali Edwards

Let's talk about December today.

Specifically, let's talk about the December Daily 2012 by Ali Edwards stamp set.

The Technique Tuesday Creative Team has been giving this stamp set quite a work out over the last few weeks. Check it out.

Jaclyn Miller has been documenting December by making a December Daily album.

Check out how she used it on the cover of her book.

And she used it on this page!

She used one of the set's stamps to emboss the words along the right side of her page.

Laura O'Donnell used the set to embellish the cards on this page in her Project Life album.

We especially love this Santa-themed card she made for the page. The red words are from the set.

How fun is that Santa belt?

Laura also made a notebook to use throughout the month.

And Ashley Harris made a holiday card with the stamp set.

Teri made one, too!
