The Scrapping Everyday Miracles Blog is in need of 2-4 new Design Team members.    What I am looking for is a good team player, with faith, that can do at least one project (layout, card, mixed media/OTP, scripture) per month and make a feature post (In the Word Wednesday, Tips & Tricks, My Everyday Miracle) on the blog probably once or twice during a 3-6 month term. Also required is visiting the pages of our challenge entries to leave a comment, helping in selecting monthly winners, and having a personal Facebook page so you can be added to the Design Group where we do all our discussing and planning.  The deadline for entry is August 15, 2015.

If you are interested please send an email to me at NeedTime4Kroppin@aol.com or message my Facebook page. Be sure to put SEM DT CALL in the subject line.  Please include a bit about yourself, some samples of your best work, any DT experience you have had (but don't worry if you haven't...experience is not a requirement).

Looking forward to seeing some of those that have been participating in our challenges submit for an opportunity to join the team!

Tips Tricks and Techniques with Cara

I want to share a new technique that I recently tried. It's a window card with stamping around the window. 

I started with a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card folded at the top. I put the card through a die cutting machine with a circle template to make my circle cut-out. You could actually use your pick of fun die-cut shapes for this technique--an oval, a scalloped circle, a heart, or ????

Then I used some cute floral stamps and stamped around the outside of the circle using a piece of scrap paper underneath. I made sure that I had different sizes of stamps so I could "fill in" where needed. 

This was the stamped outcome. *NOTE: You don't have to use outline stamps that need colored in...you can also try this same technique with solid stamps, still remembering to choose different sizes to fill in.

I used my fun, bright Sharpies to color my images in.

Then with careful placement I stamped the "Happy Birthday" sentiment and colored it in.

And here's the finished product...a bright, fun window card.


I hope I've inspired you to try this fun technique. ~Cara
