MCPT Challenge on the Cricut Forum

This is the first time I've attempted to do what is called the MCPT challenge on the Cricut forum... MCPT stands for Magic Colored Pencil Technique. You use prisma color pencil (or the like). they must be high wax content.. Then you use what is called Gamsol or OMS (odorless mineral spirits) to blend in the color.. I had a lot of fun, but I've got a lot to learn to even think about being as good as the ladies who normally do the challenge.. Anyone interested I'm putting a link to the forum below this post.

Scrapallier Digital Stamp Design Team Contest

hey there.. Its been a busy week.. I was trying out a great digital stamp created by:


The contest was to take the stamp created and use it in a paper craft.. I decided to do something a little different than a card.. I decided to create a small valentine album to put some wedding pictures in and give to my great aunt... She is all about quality, not quantity.. so they smaller the better.. The stamp is wonderful.. The statement is from the Bible, Song Of Solomon.. there is to be a set of stamps in this series.. hope you like it and check out scrapallier's site.. continue to watch for the new upcoming stamps...
