Mama Elephant - Bella Letters

Today is the final day of Mama Elephant's Stamp Highlights, and I have a card to share today using their new Bella Letters stamps.

This small sized alpha stamp set is really versatile and can be used for all sorts of cards or even Project Life (they're the perfect size for Project Life cards!). I decided to use them on my card here to stamp out the alphabet, then I highlighted the 'HI' by handstitching the letters. At the bottom, I added a little critter and speech bubble from Small Talk.
Hope you enjoyed the cards this week. Be sure to check out the Mama Elephant blog for more inspiration!

Mama Elephant - Woodland Gifts

Another day, another Mama Elephant Stamp Highlights! Today we're showcasing Woodland Gifts.

I adore these animal critters and decided to subtly color them with light grey ink. I stacked the rabbit and mouse on top of the log so that the bear could see them ;) Their stoic faces crack me up.

There are lots of possibilities with this stamp set, and you can find more inspiration on the Mama Elephant blog today.

New Studio Calico Class // Day by Day: Out of Pocket

I'm really excited about the next class in Studio Calico's Day by Day series: Out of Pocket with Kelly Purkey! It's no secret that I'm a big fan of KP's work so I'm really looking forward to what cool tips and techniques she'll be sharing in this class, especially since Project Life is my primary form of memory keeping these days.

Here's some more info:
Stop hiding in the pocket. Give dimension to your Project Life® album by coming out of the pocket. This workshop shows you how to mix things up with additional tools like dies, attachers, hidden journaling, index tabs and dividers to give your spreads interesting components that take your album from simple to simply amazing.

  • 5 PDF lessons focusing on mixing things up with tabs, attachers, hidden journaling, dividers, flip ups and more.
  • 2 videos from Kelly
  • 5 Project Life® spreads from Kelly's contributors, along with their tips and tricks for adding dimension and interest to pocket pages by adding elements outside the pockets.
  • Digital printable - tags & tabs - from In A Creative Bubble
  • Pocket and tag cut file from In A Creative Bubble
  • Access to a class message board and gallery, where you can share and learn with your teacher and fellow students.
  • Weekly challenges to inspire you to use what you've learned.
I also got to design the printables and cut files for the class:
