Today's focus is on creating your own background paper.  My nephew turned two years old and celebrated with a firetruck theme party.  The brick background stamp created the perfect matting paper for my main photo.  When you don't have the perfect patterned paper to match your photos, make your own.

Visit the Sin City Stamps Blog to find the tutorial for my brick background.


Supplies:
1.  Brick Wall Section Art Rubber Stamp by Terri Sproul (Sin City Stamps)

a2zscrapbooking - November Challenge

I need to point out that I tried something new and rather than stamping onto paper, I stamped directly onto a wooden tag. I began by stamping the script background design with black ink and then heat embossed white snowflakes. Next, I sprayed the wooden tag with blue mist so that the wood grain would show through.  I was inspired by the movie, "Home Alone"

Winter Wonderland (Sin City Stamps)

Supplies:  Winter Wonderland Stamp Set (Sin City Stamps), clear acrylic mounting block, wooden tag, black ink pad, blue spray mist, white embossing powder, heat gun, white crackle paint, glitter glue, chalk, wooden snowflake, ribbons

The a2z Scrapbooking November Challenge this month at  is “WINTER”!  The complete set of rules to participate can be found HERE.  Instead of just using Hero Arts products on your project you can use any products you have in your stash.  One challenge winner will be randomly chosen and will receive the digi stamp of the month. This month’s digi is Vintage Travel.  If the winner uses a Hero Arts product, they also receive a $20 Gift Certificate to the a2z Scrapbooking Store.
