A Memorable Monday

Today's CHF Challenge was to create an "altered project". The girls have gone out of their way and have BLOWN me away this week! So make sure to click on their links on the left of my blog to be directed to their sites.

I've been working on Eli's teacher's gifts this week and finally am able to share them with you!

Today is the first day that I'm allowed to reveal something BIG that's coming to the stamping world. (Make sure you read Mona's post for all of the details!) I'll be talking about this new release over the next several days... but basically -- Cornish Heritage Farms has designed a new tool called Scrapblocks™. (release date: Tuesday, June 3rd) Scrapblocks™ are HUGE 6" x 6" rubber stamps that are going to change the way you craft.

Did you guys ever play with Shrinky Dinks when you were kids? Some of the girls have been making fun little projects out of shrink plastic and I thought I would give it a try using one of my new Scrapblocks™ - Writing Paper. I was SO excited when I saw this image for the first time! I asked Mona about creating something that looked like a primary writing tablet several months ago and here it is! I just think it's so nostalgic and can be used for so many fun projects! (If you look closely at the background of my blog... you can see how much I {heart} this print!)

I was thrilled when I found out that Kim's Quirky Alphabet letters fit PERFECTLY inside the lines on this stamp! To make this necklace, I just stamped the Writing Paper onto shrink film using StazOn ink - stamped the letters with Colorbox Craft ink - and then cut out the shape with an oval Nestabilities die. I'm sort of impatient, so I used my embossing heat gun to quickly shrink my plastic. *Make sure to punch a hole in your charm BEFORE heat setting so that you can add a jump ring to the top.

This is a fun stationary set that I made that fits perfectly inside of a nugget tin. This is part of my most recent article written for Craft Critique (and I'd love for you to take a peek!) This school set by CHF is SO MUCH FUN! It works perfectly with the little paper pad from the Four Square set and the Lined Paper Backgrounder! (I found these teeny tiny journal notepads at Walmart)

Here is the complete set of stationary made from Rubber Soul notecards, patterned paper, and images from the Kim Hughes line at CHF.

School is almost out and I hope that means I can get back to posting more regularly! I hope you all have a fantastic Memorial Day!
