Pals Guest Stamper: Lynn H.

Hats off to those amazing paper crafting "engineers" who whittle paper and embellishments into fabulous 3-D masterpieces.  Lynn Hoyt, today's guest stamper and a member of my Stampin' Pretty Pals, shares two of her masterful 3-D projects with you today.  To kick things off, she created a mini photo album.  For supplies list and more details, please visit her Cattail Designs Blog.

HOT TIP FROM LYNN:  The Stampin' Up! Anywhere Glue Sticks work great as they hold well without wrinkles but give you a little time to line the Designer Series Paper Up.

Turn a lunch sack into a charming gift bag!  I adore how Lynn used the Stampin' Up! Fun Flowers Bigz L Die for the splashy flower.

HOT TIP FROM LYNN:  For added texture, run the middle of the lunch sack through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine with the Stampin' Up! Perfect Polka Dots Textured Embossing Folder.

  10. Lynn, these are brilliant! Love the colors on that lunch bag and what a super idea to emboss the bag. I wouldn’t have thought of that!

  11. Welcome Lynn! You have a gift with 3-D here, your Framelit Photo Book would be perfect for Grandparent gifts with photos of grandchildren, or Baby’s “First” books easy to collect with pictures of Baby’s First steps, first hair cut, first Christmas, You have me thinking!
