Okay, before I talk about my last digi layout from my class at JessicaSprague.com I have to tell you about the GREAT DEAL I got today. I didn't even take the time to create because I was wheelin' and dealin' and lookin' at my new stamps!
I got 143 House Mouse Stamps and two House Mouse acrylic sets for soooo cheap! I called my sister and told her about it and she said, "You better get them."
I met this lady about 1-2 months ago, who was selling all of her scrapbook supplies. I went to see what she had hoping she had some stamp sets. They were hardly any there. I looked around at ALL of her stuff. She had a lot. I was talking about how I am a stamper and was looking for stamp sets. She told me she had about 150 of them at a pawn shop and would be interested in selling them to me when she got them out. I agreed.
I thought I would never hear from her again! I looked online and saw she lost my number and was trying to contact me. I called her yesterday and we made a deal where I would meet here at the pawn shop today and I would pay to get them out of pawn and a little more, so she could get some other things out too.
My DH was very skeptical and I told him I wouldn't do it, if I thought something wasn't right. Well, it was right! It only took about 10 minutes and I drove home to unpack them. Most of them have never been used. I think she was a collector and not a stamper. I haven't even decided which ones I am going to keep and which ones I am going to try to sell. If my coloring doesn't get better by the time I am done playing with the ones I want, it never will.
My sister wants me to do a House Mouse card every week, but I told her I would have to do a lot of coloring to get that done. I will slowly work on it, but I will not make any promises. Looks like I might have to join the House Mouse group on Paper Craft Planet, so I can talk stamps. LOL!
I have a PTA meeting tonight and haven't typed the agenda yet or gotten anything ready, so I am going to show you the last layout I did in the digi class I took. When I saw this picture of Tate and my two nephews in the tree, I knew this paper was perfect for it. These three boys have so much fun when we go back to my parents. They are between 7-9 right now and Tanner follows them around like he is a big boy too. This picture was taken when Tanner was less than one year, so he couldn't join this climb.
The one thing I really liked about this layout was how the journaling turned out. I like how they showed how to make key words bigger and to stagger the lines. We cut the paper to put in the rectangles and it was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be.
My second digi class starts next week and I can't wait. I want to start creating two-page layouts and learning more about making embellishments pop.
I will be working on a Molly card this week and a video. Off to look at my new stamp supply!
