Here is what I did with Canvas Corp and myStamp BOX's products (click on the photos for a closer look):

I created this layout of my son in his Halloween costume with entirely Canvas Corp and myStampBOX products! The layout uses all CC kraft/black and white/black papers, Chalkstalk tags, twine, mini clothespins, a kraft mini bag, and a burlap tag as a mat for my photo. I am all about texture on my projects, so Canvas Corp is a natural fit for me.

The letters on the tags and mini kraft bag are from the myStampBOX Royal Flush alphabet. It's my very favorite one!! The Chalkstalk tags were also embellished with barbed wire from Repeat After Me. The tiny tags tucked into the bag are from the Santa's Tags set. I love that you can use them on all sorts of projects, not just Christmas ones.

Now it’s time to HOP along and find out what the next talented designer has created. Your next designer is Cassie. Don’t forget to leave a comment below for a chance to WIN one of our TWO product giveaways!

myStampBOX: Memo Pad Holder

It's craft fair season, and I'm in full holiday swing! This year I found a new item that is selling like crazy. I took a 5x7 clear acrylic photo frame (shaped like an L) and created a patterned paper insert. I glued a Post-It note pad to the top and decorated the top using the myStampBOX stamp sets Rustic Outlines and Oversized (for the semicolon). I have changed up the decoration styles and colors to get a wide variety of items. This would also make a great teacher gift!

Scrapbook {Express}ions: Ad Challenge

Our blog DT coordinator Julie posted a great ad inspiration challenge this week, and I decided to play along. Get all the supplies for this card at Scrapbook Express!

myStampBOX: We Are Family!

Join the Design Team at myStampBOX for projects about family. The blog is packed with fun ideas for using our stamps on your layouts, cards, and mini albums today. We're all one big happy family!
I went full-on grungy with this layout! I had a blast painting, misting, and stamping the plain sheet of kraft cardstock as my layout base. I used tiny stamps from the He Loves Me set for the background. The title was stamped with letters from Splash Me a Lot (larger alphabet) and Mini Alpha. The awesome canvas stars from product partner Canvas Corp were also stamped with the dots from Backgrounds.

The photo is of my husband and many of his cousins at a family reunion late this past summer. It was a wonderful time to get together for a weekend of fun. We're still talking about the great memories! Be sure to stop by the myStampBOX blog for a look at more projects about family. Enjoy the ones you love!
