Stamp Carving 101 and a Scrappy Weekend Update...

The Stamp Carving 101 Class is over, but I am still plugging away at my lessons and loving it! I'm on Lesson 5 (out of ten). This lesson was all about learning to do points and curves. I've been wanting to carve my own cloud stamps, so I thought this was the perfect time to try it. I had so much fun! Here's how they turned out...



I haven't shown you all much of my daily journal pages, cuz they are mostly just writing; but I always record the weather. Now I can use my very own stamps for cloudy days! See...
Next up is Lesson 6, which is all about carving a complex design. Still deciding what I want to do for that one, but I will keep you posted.

If you want to check out the class, you still can. Julie is a fantastic teacher! Click here for more info or to register.

I'm very excited because over the weekend I signed up for Ali Edwards' "One Little Word" class over at Big Picture Scrapbooking. It goes all year long, and each month you have prompts to work with your "word" for the year. At the end of the year you have a completed album. My word this year is "peace." I'm so excited to start working with it. I'm extra-excited because I'm going to use a journal that I thought I wasn't going to have any use for! I can't wait to show it to you. As soon as I complete the first prompt I will do that.

If you are looking for something scrappy to do today, there's still time to play along with this week's Scrapping The Music challenge! The deadline is tonight (Sunday) at midnight. Click here to check it out!

Alrighty, I'm off to do some scrappy stuff. See you again soon!

I love love your cute clouds, great job on them. Taking this class is on my list for later in the year, it does look fun.

Have fun in OLW class, can't wait to see what you do with your journal.

I can't believe how much crafting/artsy stuff you do, that's soooo awesome!!
Have a great week.

Love your clouds. I loved Julie's class and got a lot of stamps carved. I still have the last one to do. I record the weather in my everyday journal.

Marit said...

Cute, cute! Are you going to carve rain-sun-snowflakes too? That way, you can stamp the weather every day into your journal!
