Now... I have to tell everyone I picked up Ali Edward's new book "Life Artist" yesterday... and read it already... not just browsed thru it to look at all the incredible ideas, but really read it... couldn't put it down... read all the journalling in the page samples... read it cover to cover...
I HAVE to recommend this book to everyone... it is a MUST own with incredible ideas, wonderful inspiration and terrific advice... Makes you just want to sit down with your papers, scissors and glue for the next 48 hours and create, write and tell yourself "IT'S OK"...
Thank you Ali for such a wonderful addition to my Library...

I received this challange yesterday via e-mail from one of the scrapbooking groups I'm a member of and thought it was such an interesting challange, I would share it here:
Find two pictures of yourself, one from when you were very young and one recent one. The journaling can be lengthy or short but should reflect the phrase, "You've come a long way, Baby!" Use your favorite colors.
On your mark, get set, GOOOOOO!!!
E-mail your layout to me and receive some "blog bling" to scrapbook with via snail mail from me!!

Supplies: VersaMark Ink Pad; Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE) or Clear Embossing Powder; Dye Ink; Image Stamp(s); Cardstock; and a Heat Gun
Step 1: Stamp image on cardstock
Step 2: Add color to image as needed
Step 3: Either Apply VersaMark over the entire piece of cardstock
Step 4: Place your cardstock either into a craft tray or on a sheet of copy paper and pour the UTEE over it.
Step 5: Heat powder with the heat gun until melted
Step 6: While the UTEE is still hot, add more powder over the cardstock. If the UTEE has cooled, just reheat or apply another layer of VersaMark before adding the UTEE.
Step 7: Heat again until melted
Step 8: Repeat steps 6 & 7 until you have a smooth layer over the entire image.
Step 9: After heating the last layer of UTEE, put the cardstock in the freezer for a couple minutes. The cardstock will look warped when you take it out of the freezer, but no worries...
Step 10: Bend cardstock carefully until the UTEE cracks. Continue bending in different areas of the image until you like how it looks.
If you'd like the cracks to show more, sponge a dark colored ink over the entire image. The ink gets into the cracks. Wipe the image with a paper towel to pick up the ink that doesn't seep into the cracks.

This is a coaster frame made using 4" square coasters (If I remember correctly there were Smirnoff Ice coasters). The paper and stickers are from Close To My Heart "Independence" line. I also used Silver Hinges, Colonial White brads and Cranberry Grosgrain Ribbon. I used the Close To My Heart's "Playful Lowercase" stamp set to stamp "USA".
I thought it was a cute patriotic project to share this week!!

Supplies: Chipboard, Sanding Block or Sand Paper, White Glue, Paint Brush (usable with glue), Pencil, Hobby Blade, Cutting Mat, and Scissors.
- Start by flipping the paper over and trace the desired chipboard piece backwards.
- After tracing around the chipboard, start to cut it out. If your piece has any center cutouts, cut those out first with the hobby blade. Finish by cutting around the traced image.
- You now have a cut-out paper duplicate of your chipboard piece. Note that the cut out piece is slightly bigger than the chipboard.
- Apply glue to the chipboard using the paintbrush to smooth it out.
- Adhere the chipboard to the paper - let it dry.
- Sand along the edges to give it that finished, distressed look. Nail files of about 100 grit work great for getting into the corners.
- Embellish and add to your scrapbook page or card.
