Yesterday I went to my friend Pamela's house to make cards...we had decided to make it a new technique event. The technique she chose was "herringbone". At first I thought it was going to be really hard but once we got going, It was a pretty simple concept. It's a great way to "use your stash" since you can make it with scrap paper. I happened to have a bunch of 6x6 Basic Grey paper packs that I wasn't really doing anything with so I brought those. These two cards were made with Basic Grey "Ambrosia". I LOVE the way they came out and Pamela suggested I put the A Muse kokeshi doll stamp on one of them. I think it looks like a quilt!

Paper: Basic Grey "Ambrosia" (from the 6x6 paper pad)
Card: Memory Box
Stamp: A Muse - Kokeshi Doll.
Copic Markers
A Xyron was used to adhesive the strips

Layout using the glitter technique

Here's a Christmas layout I made using the glitter technique. I used it on the Christmas tree element and the large title "Christmas" and " morning". The digi kit I used was Summertime designs "Believe".

I've been going on a couple blogs and facebook groups learning techiques for using Creative Memories digital Storybook Creator Plus 3.0. It's the my chosen software for making all my digital scrapbooking pages. It's easy to use and of course I thought I knew everything until I started looking around. Wow...I can do so much more than I thought! I've been making my own directions so I can store them and refer as needed. I'm such a visual learner so this is helping me alot.

One of the more recent techniques is making things sparkle and glitter! I'll share the directions with you...
