Anything Goes at FSC

Well it's a challenge you all love over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight and as long as your project includes some real stamping then it will be eligible

I would like to join in with Simon Says Stamp and Show's 'Passport to Fun" challenge with this album. Lets take a look at what I have included.


I have made a little album for my trip to California so that I can add any memorabilia I pick up over the holiday and keep all together and hopefully journal at the same time.


I started by blending DIs, flicking water and drying it then stamping using the Tim Holtz Travel Ways stamps.

The next layer included a Tim blueprint stamp mounted,  some die-cut letters and numbers and his new rub-ons. They go on so easily, by far the best I have ever used.




To give me a bit of a head start I have added some pockets ........


..... masking ........


.... tissue tape and more stamps.


So let's see if I am managing to keep it while I am away, I should be able to as we are staying with friends.

Thanks for popping in, have a wonderful Sunday and I hope some time to create.
