Viva Las VegaStamps! DT Tryout

My post today is two-fold.

Part One.Today on the Viva Las Vegastamps! Blog I share with you how the tremendous selection of stamps and sayings at VLVS make it my favorite stamp store for all my little celebrations! I've created a series of ATCs and a little magnetic tile for the little occasions in September that I love to celebrate! I pulled from my VLVS stash and found stamps to celebrate National Sewing Month, Talk Like a Pirate Day, Elephant Appreciation Day and the invention of the Safety Pin! How fun is that! The 19000+ stamps available through Viva Las Vegastamps! make celebrating EVERY occasion possible! Hop on over to the blog and check out my mini celebrations.

Part Two. I am also taking the opportunity to try out again for the Viva Las Vegastamps! Design Team. I had an amazing time this past 6 months and would love the opportunity to stay and design some more with these fabulous stamps and other great products like Miracle Tape, High Gloss Embossing Powder and Kromecote Paper.

As part of this application we were asked to share what we thought represented our best everyday style. I have been stamping artistically for over a decade. I guess my favorite thing to do is what you see in the above project and in the projects below. I love to use my stamps as tools--I try to select my stamps not as a one time use but as something that I can use and enjoy many different ways. It may be a texture or an image or a saying. I will want to be able to use it for all sorts of paper crafting from card making to scrapbooking to altered projects to minis and of course to my latest passion Artist Trading Cards. I love to layer them, color them, impress them. VLVS not only offers a magnificent selection to allow me to celebrate every little occasion bit also a selection to feed my creative soul!

So I share with you...
My projects from the Mary Vogel Lozinak Blog Hop--This had two of my favorites, mixed media stamping and altered art. Follow the link to my post to see the rest of the ATCs and the little altered folder that I created to hold them.

Stamped Collage Mini Album--This recent project represents another of my passions--constructing mini albums. I find being able to create my papers with my stamps gives me a more cohesive project and allows me to tie together every embellishment as well. Follow the link to see the full tutorial and creation of this mini album.

Count Down to holidays--is a project that embraces my love for stamping on things that sit still too long and for crafting for my kids and family. Follow this link for just a taste of the possibilities of this project.
And of course I'm a card maker too...the holiday cards below are probably some of my favorite.
Remember there is only 1 more days left to enter your application for the Viva Las Vegastamps! Design Team!
Coming up later in the month please join the Viva Las Vegastamps! Design Team as we celebrate fall and Halloween with:
