Plane & Simple Stamp Set

 I know this stamp set has been retired for sometime but it is one of the many I've held on to. Prolly b/c of the vintage feel of it. But it also seem like a nice manly stamp set as well. With my nephew recently in the Air Force I was excited to dust off some of the dust to this one and play with it again. Here are a couple I ended up making. This top one is my favorite though.

Ecosystem school project & snail adhesive

 My son recently come home with a school project to do a ecosystem over Leopards.
After much research and collecting of 
supplies it was time to put together.
when he came to me and ask for glue the first thing that popped
 into my mind was of course Stampin' Up
adhesive. I gave him a small tutorial on which side 
was up kind of thing and how to apply generously and away he went. 
The best part was how cool he thought it was that it was a not so messy glue.

 It counted for two grades. 
One for the paper and research and Second for this neat little display he put together. =) 
He was so proud of the finished project
-and of course so was mom and dad; he did a GREAT job!

Simple Thank You Card under 5 minutes

 I love this technique it's a water color smeared  looked but just using a sponge.

 1.) start out with 3 colors of ink with 3 sponges

 2.) dab sponge in first color of ink and then gently rub back and forth lightly
 to just give  a smear, then repeat steps until you done all three!
(you may practice on scratch paper first to get comfortable with the strokes)

  3.)  I used my basic black ink to stamp my thank you

supplies used:
whisper white cs
watercolor thank you stamp
ink pads: pistachio pudding, brown sugar, strawberry slush, basic black

a lil memory keeping

 Using a little memory keeping using Project Life
 plastic sleeves and card collections.
for me this is a new way of memory keeping and really absolutely love it.
I feel like I can use more of my pictures but yet give a card or two a slide 
and gives me enough decoration to keep it creative n yet simple.
And if you are real busy but don't want to get behind on scrap bookin memories this is ideal.
