How To Stamp & Scrapbook By The Scrapgirlz

videoToday was our first video presentation with The De La Torre Scrapgirlz. It was so much to record a How To Video with my daughters. My husband is wonderful and loves to work on projects, so basically it is a family affair. The video shows how you can involve your children and how we can spend more time together with our families and create memories with love ones. Recently, I learned to appreciate my family so much more, since my son will be leaving to Afghanistan in November. It makes you rethink what is really important and I had decided to dedicate more time with my family awhile back. Fortunately, becoming an angel demo with The Angel Company has truly been a blessing in my family. So I challenge you to create with your loved ones and continue to make those memories.....

Stamping Trash To Treasure!

Ok, I have to admit I am one of those people who loves to save everything hoping I will make something later down the road. What do I mean? Well, can you guess what I used as a box template? Yeah, your right a soap box! I love the size and thought hmmm, I can make something with this. I drew large flowers on cardboard and covered with TAC's beautiful Catelynne Fly With It Collection. The front flower was a scalloped punch and I decided to chalk the flowers to add a vintage look to them. Luckily my mother knits and has every color yarn you can think of. Great for embellishing a button from my mom's button collection. I used a tag from Catelynne Paper Pack Tags, TAC Ribbon from the same paper collection. The handle also has ribbon with Large Eyelets. The TAC stamp set I used for the Tag which says "Thanks" is from the "Circle Sampler" still can be purchased from our main catalogue. I found some packaging paper and decided to stamp circles and thanks from the stamp set. I also chalked the box and package paper. I am not sure if you can see it clearly. I just love creating from things you have already or find! I know I am not the only one who loves creating from trash! So if anyone would love to come forward and admit to creating art from their trash, please let me know so I can see your creations! Remember the first step is just admitting that you stamp your trash:)
