Sketch Challange

I just LOVE how this Canada Day layout turned out!! I started with a plain white/cream vintage paper, then stamped it with stamps I loaded with distress stains instead of regular ink. I also added lots of Washi Tape... and brads! 

So here is my challenge... BE INSPIRED by my layout! USE the SAME SKETCH as I did... that means put the photos and title in approximately the same places... but use your own colors, papers and theme.

Then email me your version of this sketch.  I will enter your name into a DRAW for FREE GOODIES valued at $25!!!

Contest DEADLINE is March 1st. That gives you TWO weeks to come up with something. :)) Remember it doesn't need to look like mine, just use the same sketch. :))

Ohhh i can't wait to see what you come up with!!

My email address is either:     or


Tin Cards

Hello from Scrap Therapy!

Here is what I've been up to the past couple days. :))

I made these cards using this fun stuff... TIN! Ok not tin tape because you know how obsessed I was with that stuff!

But this is colored tin. I ran it through the Big Shot with an embossing folder then sanded to get the silver background to show up. Take a look here!

this card has a taupe tin background that I embossed with a honeycomb folder. Then I sanded it to expose the silver background. Then I took some Precious Metals and water to add the turquoise splotches. :))

 On this card... after I ran it through the chevron embossing folder and sanded it to expose the silver... I then took turquoise Precious Metals and dabbed some on my Splat Mat. I added some water to make it runny, then dipped my tin into it. That way the placed that were silver picked up the turquoise. Love it!

 This one has turquoise tin that I ran through a cloud embossing folder and sanded to show 
off the silver underneath.

This card also has the embossed cloud tin background.

Ok this one doesn't have tin! But the dark brown chevron print is a piece of Shimmer Sheets that I embossed. I really need to play more with those Shimmer Sheets to find more cool things to do with them!

have a great weekend!

And open again 4:30pm to 7pm

Plus.... announcing a great new card class.


In this card class we'll make SIX CARDS!!  I'll do lots of pre-cutting so you can get them all done.  These SIX cards are classic designs using one gorgeous stamp and die cut from Our Daily Bread Designs.  But in many different color palettes.  It's so cool how ONE stamp can look so different!   I'll teach you how to use a transperancy, Staz On ink, and different mediums such as Perfect Pearls, Inka Gold and Precious metals to create these beautiful cards.
