Happy Thursday everyone! Wow, this week for me is just FLYING by! I haven't got as much accomplished as I had hoped! I thought for sure since I got my house work finished on Monday that I would have all sorts of time to play but nope it's not working out that way!!
For April's Stamp of the Month, Emma has not only chose one set but two!! The stamp sets of the month are Camera Shy and My Teacher Rocks. I will be showcasing My Teacher Rocks for my project today!
I tried something new that I've not done before! I used the cartridge, A Child's Year and did some paper piecing. I cut the image out 7 times in all the different colors and patterns I wanted to use. I love to paper piece! I feel like it really relaxes me! I love this cartridge but sometimes I really wished it would have been one with layers. Don't get me wrong, I love the look of silhouette's but I also struggle creating with them too! I used Zing white embossing powder for the sentiment on the chalkboard. The card stock I used has little specks of gray and dark brown. I believe it came from Hobby Lobby but since it was in my stash of scraps I'm not really sure. Anyway, I thought it reminded me of a concrete wall! I also used gray (it reminded me of concrete too hee hee) I used my white jelly roll pen to add some stitching.
I also added a sentiment to the inside that reads "You are Truly Appreciated".
I almost forgot to mention there will be a linky party! If you own either one of these sets be sure to make something with either one or both and link up at Emma's!! You can get more details on her blog! These two sets will also be on sale if you don't own them! Thanks for looking! Have a AWESOME, AWESOME day!! Hugs, Leanne
