The Rummage Bin: Ledger Me

Hi All! I wanted to share with you a couple of cards I made using CHF's new set, The Rummage Bin: Ledger Me. I originally wanted to use this with ledger paper, but thought I could also use them on cards just with the coffee stain alone. Thanks for coming to take a peek! If you want to see what other designers have done with the set, please visit the gallery here.

Today is the DAY!!! The Rummage Bin is Released!

Well, this is four months of work coming to fruition. I hope you all enjoy the new releases at Cornish Heritage Farms and that you comment here for a chance to win this set! I will pick a random winner this evening (Thursday January 24th!).

To see the other 9 stamp sets and the gallery filled with samples, please visit CHF. Just know, that I had so much fun designing these sets, and I tried to ensure that there were many possibilities for combining and layering the stamps. And since I'm Canadian, I couldn't resist The Great Canadian Stamp Set! All that's missing is Tim!

Thanks for visiting. Lesley.

Scraptivity's January 2008 Kit!

Oh this kit rocks! Take a look at a few things I came up with. The technique this month is crackle paint. What we learned, was that it does not work on acrylic (it flakes off) and shiney chipboard. If you sand items, it might work better. Also the watch pieces you will get, some have little pieces that will pierce the paper and then cannot bend. I banged mine of with a hammer, or you can stick them down with pop dots.
If you don't know already, Scraptivity Kits come with paper, stamps, embellishments, a technique, and other goodies. With January 2008, you also get 2 acrylic album pieces. I had to drill through mine, but apparently, the crop-a-dile works too. Click on the title to be taken to the kit.
