October Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday


Welcome to the October Studio AE Blog Hop From Technique Tuesday.

Technique Tuesday offers a monthly stamp club that features a limited edition stamp set designed by me each month. You can check out past stamp sets (some are still available) here.

Say hello to this month's stamp set: Hello December


DIGITAL MEMORY KEEPER? This set is based on a combination of my December Daily™ Favorites 4x6 Overlays and other Christmas-themed word art.


This month I created an 8.5x11 layout using the long rectangle pieces with stars on the end from the stamp set to create a frame around my photo. I used the "Christmas wish" stamp inside the boxes using grey and red ink. Around the frame I paired pattern paper from Heidi Swapp's Believe 12x12 Paper pad and Teresa Collins Santa's List Collection 12 x 12 Double Sided Paper with Glitter Accents Snowflakes. On top of my photo I used Teresa Collins photo corners and added a couple of chipboard words from that same collection. I also added a couple of hand-drawn lines and words that bump into the chipboard words.

This stamp set would also make really great December Project Life 4x6 cards or cards that can be used for journaling in December Daily™.

I can't wait to see how other people use them!

    As a card maker I'll be using the set on my greeting cards. It's a great stamp set and is very versatile. Enjoyed seeing all of the layouts (and a card) on the hop. Got a lot of good ideas.
