Jenn used the Photographer stamp set to create the above birthday card. The camera image is from Liz Tamanaha of Paislee Press. This stamp set is perfect for cards and layouts. Can't you just picture a paparazzi themed layout using these stamps?
Jill recently joined a design team that Faber-Castell started to introduce a new line of products geared towards the scrap/stamp/papercrafts market. This was one of the cards she created for their CHA booth using the Damask Background stamp. Jill used Stampers Big Brush Markers (to color the stamp), PITT Artist Pens (for shading), and Art GRIP Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils (for the background). You can read how Jill created this card in a little more detail on her blog here. This is probably my favorite card from Jill.
The design team and I were invited to be a part of a brand new application (App) available for the ipod touch, iphone and ipad. We each created a card based on a sketch in the App. The App contains over 100 different card sketches with a card sample and supply list for each. This was a really fun project to be a part of. If you enjoy using sketches just think how easy it will be to pull them up on your i-device especially at crops!
The app is $4.99 for 104 sketches plus 12 free ones from the Lite version. The Lite version contains 12 sketches and can be downloaded for free. Click on the links below to purchase, download and get more information about these apps from itunes.

This beautiful layout is from Julie. It is what I consider to be her signature style. She is a master at creating beautiful floral arrangements on her pages. Julie's layouts always have such wonderful texture and dimension. I always love how she uses block letters for titles and journaling (either stamped or little stickers). It always makes the text stand out. The script stamp framing the page is perfect. How about the little unexpected Christmas ornament. Cute touch. The photo of her daughter cracks me up. She totally reminds me of Pippi Longstockings.
