If you've ever visited my store, you likely met an older gentleman who became a great personal friend to me; George. For those of you who don't know, George passed a week ago Monday; we will celebrate his life with a memorial service this Friday at 1pm at the Orono United Methodist Church. Feel free to join us as we remember our dear friend. RIP, George.

I'm hijacking the blog for a quick technique post. I was able to steal away this past weekend and do some scraping and I promised Judy months ago that if I ever created again that I'd post. So, in keeping with my promise, here's a little tutorial:

(Actually, I'm pretty sure, I've shown this idea before but it was many moons ago and sometimes it's just nice to have an idea repeated in a different way to get the juices flowing, right?!)


1- Pick your sticker, vinyl letter, or shape and place where you want it on your paper.

2 - Using ink, chalk, or paint add color over the top of your sticker and blend into the paper until you have the shade you are looking for.

3- Remove sticker!

See, easy!

It's a fun way to add a new look to your pages, cards and such.

Here's my completed layout I did using this technique.

Valentine Ball

My friend Kathy brought me this ball
she recieved from her friend Nancy Levitt.
When you unravel it you get a surpise in the middle

Of course, I loved the idea-because in my back room I had a ton of small pieces of ribbon, lace and yarn. Not sure what I ever would have done with it all. I dumped all this stuff on the table and started to tie them together to make one long strip. Then I wrapped it all around the candy and tied on a tag with a Valentine's message. What a great way to use up some of your little pieces. Thank you to Nancy for allowing us to share a great idea (check her website at nancyleavit.com)

Happy Valentine's Day to all!
