As promised and a little tutorial

This is kind of a funny story......last winter we bought these books to do a class, which we never did. In the last year we have tried to give it to different design team members, and it keeps coming back un-done. I found the box of them the other day, and my sales rep. gave me pictures of one that Karen Russell had done. So this is my take on it, and I must say it came out cute.....I do not know why all of you had a problem with this book, LOL!I used the new Basic Grey Wassail, Karen Russell scallop paper and Yellow Bicycles new Christmas Line. As you can see the book pulls out so you can see a little of each page.

Ok here is your little tutorial.....Caroline from Maya Road showed us this, and it turns your chipboard into fancy letters. All you need is Chipboard, ink, stamp, Utee clear embossing powder, Versamark pad and a heat gun. Take your chalk ink and color your chipboard, then stamp swirls or script letters, you can even do a little doodling like the "H". If using pigment ink, make sure it is dry, place colored side down on the embossing pad, then place in Utee embossing powder. Make sure you have a good coating on, then use heat gun. Let it dry and repeat, you may need to do it a third time.


This is hard to see, but I distressed the scallop paper and then used a script stamp on it.

Bravo! I knew you'd make a beautiful sample in the end...I stand by my prediction that as soon as your regulars see your sample, the 24 books you have left will sell out and you'll have to order more!

I'm looking forward to the Post-Thanksgiving you have a list of what everyone is bringing? I do think it would be hilarious if everyone brought mashed potatoes or green-bean casserole!

Be well!

It turned out great. You should have just done it to begin with---you were feeling it.
