Look what we are doing!

The dollar store club meets tonight (thanks for letting me change the date ladies :) ) and I am so thrilled. I love this group! Their creativity astounds me -- yes Mindy, even when your tray remains a tray! hehe

As you know, I always do a "little class" as part of the club. We've used UTEE, alcohol inks, learned inking techniques... this month I took my inspiration from a video by Heidi Swapp that she did for Ali Edwards Blog. She demoed her new Invisible Chipboard and embellished with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. Here is the link to see the video.

Anyway.. This sparked my creative imagination :)
I thought -- wow, that chipboard is cool - white chipboard with a resist pattern on it. hummmmmm..... I wonder......... Off to the studio shelves:
  • white chipboard - check
  • clear embossing powder - check (I know this makes a great resist)
  • a good embossing ink (can we say perfect medium?) *smile* - check
  • Archival Ink - check
  • some fun stamps - check
  • mini misters - check
  • reinkers - check
  • perfect pearls - check check check
....I wonder.....

So I set off to see if I can create something as fun and wowsers!!! It works!! :) Gotta love those moments! So... I went a little further and created this cute little note book:

Can't wait to do this with the girls tonight! See you soon!
