The Rules...

We love to see all of your beautiful creations but to be in for the prize drawing it must be a scrapbook layout or mini album. After all that is what we are about here. We all love to stamp on our cards but sometimes we forget to use them on our layouts and other projects. They are cheap embellishments and plentiful after all. You are welcome to combine our challenge with others. Happy Crafting!

I just can't resist their images. Why not stop by the Wags 'n Whiskers blog too and enter their challenges.

The challenge this week goes along with our tutorial by our very own Lisa. Be sure to check the previous post for the tutorial. We would love to hear what you think! Thanks Lisa for the fabbo tutorial!

We want to see paper piecing on your layout. Don't forget to use at least one stamp, if you don't use a stamp for your piecing.

Now lets see what the design team came up with this week!

We are looking forward to seeing what you all do this week. Be sure to link us to your new layout by Friday! Happy Crafting!!

Paper piecing tutorial

It's Lisa here - I'm going to show you how to paper piece. I usually paper piece stamped images. I have a TON of cards and layouts on my blog with paper pieced images - here is the step by step

First I stamped directly on my layout - where I wanted the final image to be.
Pick your pattern paper that you want to piece together on the final image - stamp the image on those papers also.
Cut out the pieces from your pattern paper that you want to use - The bottom piece will be covered up, so you don't have to cut all the little pieces off of that.
Glue down your base layer on the final stamped image
Glue down your next layer
Glue down your final layer and you are finished!
Finished layout with my 2 paper pieced owls.

You can also choose to paper piece an embellishment that you don't stamp. You can paper piece your own creation on your page (cars, flowers, owls, etc). I personally like how precise you can be with a stamp, but that's me!

Can't wait to see all your paper pieced creations!
