Calling all scrapbookers and memory keepers. Would you like to make your photos and memories be the highlight of your scrapbooks, have more fun while you are crafting and SAVE MONEY? Then this blog post is for you!
We invited some amazing designers to make scrapbook layouts, pocket pages, December Daily projects and Traveler's Notebook layouts using the stamps and dies from our Scrapbooking Collection. Each of their projects show how you can use stamps and dies to make titles, embellishments and journaling spots using colors that complement your photos and reflect your own style.
So grab your favorite Sunday morning beverage and take a few minutes to see how you can use stamps, dies and cardstock plus a little ink to be more creative and save money!
Heya, Julie here with another colorful scrapbook layout from Nathalie. I really like how she combined the small, stamped phrases with the script-y "smile" and "laugh" die-cut words to make a title for this layout. The black stamped elements and die-cut phrases look fabulous with the bright, patterned paper she used!
Hello! Julie here today with an entertaining scrapbook layout from Sheree. Her traveler's notebook pages showcase some hilarious photos and amusing memories from her everyday life. Projects about family members and friends who make you laugh are such a hoot to work on, aren't they? I hope you enjoy her tutorial!
Hi everyone! It’s Sheree with you today as guest designer this month and I have a traveler’s notebook spread to share with your using the fun Laugh and Smile Stamp Set!
Hello all! Happy Monday morning. Julie here with a scrapbook project that is all about happy faces and laughter! Jung used the Laugh and Smile Stamp Set and the Layered Smile Crafting Dies to make a traveler's notebook layout about her daughter's sassy smile and the funny faces she makes. I love how Jung combined a clean and simple design and bright colors to bring a happy, light-hearted feeling to this memory keeping project.
Hello crafty friends! It’s Jung here, and I am so happy to be back sharing a post on the Technique Tuesday blog.
Today, I’m working with the Laugh and Smile stamp set along with the Layered Smile die set. I have a Travelers Notebook that I fill with some of my favorite photos and memories, and I decided to make a TN spread featuring a photo of a meme that I created of my youngest daughter.
Hello all! Julie here, with two beach-themed scrapbook pages for the WOW! Embossing and Technique Tuesday Blog Hop.
Now, many of you know that I am a colorer.. colorist? colorizer? er.. I love to color stamped images ;). Give me a beautiful rose, or a bunch of grapes, or a lily, or even a happy little octopus, and I can make it shine. However, though I hate to admit it, I have never really made a scrapbook page. It's one of those hobbies that I just haven't gotten into before, and right now, I'm wondering why not?!!?
Hi everyone... this is Bev. I am excited and a little nervous to join you all on the Technique Tuesday and WOW! Embossing Powder collaboration blog hop. I stay pretty busy running Technique Tuesday so it has been awhile since I did projects for a blog hop. But I have to say the projects I've seen so far from the WOW! and Technique Tuesday designers are AMAZING. I hope you enjoy seeing all their projects and mine too. And I hope you enter for a chance to WIN the blog hop prizes!
You know all the people in your life who make you laugh and smile? Today's blog post is all about making photo captions and journaling blocks to go with those happy and funny photos!
In this blog post I am going to show several project ideas and share tips for using the brand-new Laugh and Smile stamps. These stamps are designed to work by themselves to help you make photo captions, journaling blocks, and accents for your layouts. And they get even better when you use these stamps and the matching sets of dies together!
Hi everyone! This is Bev and today I get to introduce you all to Nathalie. In this blog post, Nathalie shares some ideas about how to make heat-embossed vellum butterflies. Her gorgeous layout will inspire you to make some vellum butterfly accents for your next card, scrapbook page, or decor project! (If you'd rather watch Nathalie's process video, hop on over to our website!)
Hi everyone! This is Bev and I am delighted to introduce Sheree Forcier to all of you. In today's blog post she shares some ideas about how to make gorgeous butterfly embellishments for your scrapbook pages (or handmade cards). I love the lovely, airy layout that Sheree created!
I layered some white cardstock onto two pieces of patterned paper then decided where I wanted my photo to go. I added some machine stitching around the edge of the white cardstock background and to the top right corner of the photo, then added some die cut flowers and leaves.
I cut a white label using the Essentials Stitched Labels Dies, then stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Butterflies Stamp Set in the center using black ink. The label was placed to the left of the photo and I added a line of machine stitching across the middle. I also stamped the ‘lovely’ stamp from the Beautiful Butterflies Silhouettes Stamp set multiple times at the top right of the photo.
Next was the fun part…stamping the butterflies! To create the multi-coloured butterfly embellishments for this scrapbook page, I simply stamped the different butterflies directly onto patterned paper and cut them out. (I didn't have the matching dies but you could use them to avoid having to fussy cut out the butterflies.) This is a great, easy way to add colour to an image if you don’t have many coloured inks in your stash or if you’re not very confident working with markers.
Before adhering the butterflies to the page, I decided where I wanted them to go, then created a shadow for them using the Beautiful Butterflies Silhouettes Stamps and a lovely neutral coloured ink. I stamped directly onto the white cardstock, then added some machine stitched butterfly trails before adding the butterflies with foam dots to create extra dimension.
The journaling strips were added to the top left of the page and machine stitched, and the date was added to finish it off
If you’d like to watch my process you can see how I put it all together in the video below.
I hope I’ve given you a few ideas on how you can add dimension to your next project using the Beautiful Butterflies Stamp Set with the Beautiful Butterflies Silhouettes Stamp Set. They have been so much fun to create with!
Thanks so much for joining me today! Happy crafting!
I love the wandering lines of stitching that indicate the butterflies' flight paths. And I adore the way Sheree used the butterfly silhouette stamps to make shadows for the detailed butterfly accents. These subtle details add a sense of movement, dimension, and bring the design together!

Happy National Scrapbook Day (NSD) 2019! If you are a fan of Technique Tuesday, you may already know that we usually offer a free stamp set on this quirky, crafty holiday. And that is true this year too. But instead of designing one stamp set specifically for this day and only offering that stamp set as the freebie, this year you get to choose your own set of FREE stamps or dies!
Pretty awesome, right? And get ready for even more awesome-ness. We're also having a blog hop that features those free stamps and dies.
Our creative team, along with several guest designers, have a whole bunch of projects they made using the stamps and dies in the NSD freebie section. We hope you'll visit each of their blogs and leave some comments for them along the way!
If you haven't met Julie yet (or watched one of her videos), you are missing out. She works here at TTWHQ (Technique Tuesday World Headquarters) and does most of our graphics. Julie has a wonderful, quirky sense of humor along with amazing coloring abilities. When she showed me this card, I started asking her questions about what she used to color the brand-new Sending Roses image. Then I noticed the sentiment and started laughing. It's from the You Aren't Normal stamp set, which is one of the products you can choose as your FREEBIE!
I hope you saw some cards, bookmarks, gift tags, or scrapbook layouts you like while you were on this blog hop!
