Is it Mojo time already? Welcome to another Mojo Monday sketch challenge (MOJO164). Julee Tilman dreams up some of the best layouts to test our papercrafting skills.
I'm seriously excited to go full steam with holiday tips and projects over the next few weeks on my Stampin' Pretty blog. If you want a bigger dose, be sure to check out my popular on-line holiday workshop and class options at the end of this post.
Please keep them coming! I have learned many little tips and great ideas from both of your video series–Nancy R.
SEW EASY VIDEO TUTORIAL. Want a quick way to add a touch of cross stitching to your cards? Check out my latest 1 Minute to "WOW" Video Tutorial to learn how. Thank you Ann Schach (one of the Stampin' Pretty Pals) for first introducing me to this idea on her blog.
- Sponging in River Rock and Rich Razzleberry adds dimension and a vintage look. The embossed texture really pops.
- For a little polish, I punched just a sliver of the Modern Label Punch in Rich Razzleberry and layered it on the sentiment.
- Layering punches take the sentiment for simple to WOW!
TOUCH OF CLASS: Watch, repeat and rewind 24/7! Join me for my full-length video demonstrations of the following holiday projects. Available as on-line workshops or individual classes. Demonstrators welcome, too!
Jennie P's thoughts: I'm a hobbyist demo and need all the help I can get when I am trying to make a project. I really love your videos and was curious enough to buy this and I'm glad I did!
I love all the tips . . . I also love that I can stop and start the videos. My husband came in several times and 'interrupted.' Thanks so much! Wendy V.
