Hurray for Red, White and Blue


Hi friends, glad you made it this far for our Red, White and Blue hop.  You should have hopped of from AJ's blog but if you didn't, you can start at Connie's

I think it being July, everyone has done patriotic projects and I am no exception. I did a spinning pinwheel tutorial not to long ago, you can find it HERE.  So I decided to make some for the holiday.

  • For the life of me, I could not find any 12x12  red, white and blue paper in my stash so I made my own. I started with my inks and a white piece of cardstock
  • I just dragged the pads in different places. This is the back of the paper.

  •  Taking a stamp set, I started with my biggest stamp and worked down, filling the paper up.

  •  I then went to the small star stamps to fill it in and here is my finally paper. Very easy to do.

  •  Then I started on my pinwheels. You can find the how to do HERE.

  •  Here is the little tag that I did to go along with them.

  • Here is a picture of the centerpiece. I am missing a couple, the kiddos nabbed them before I could take a picture. Hope it inspired you.

Also, I have a little goodie bag from my stash to give away. Just leave a comment on this post, and if you are a follower let me know.  I will put you in twice. Thanks for hopping with me :)

In The Mine 12x12 Process Video // Multi Photo

Hello everyone, welcome back! My name is Katelyn and I am sharing with you some tips on how to make poorly printed photos work for you. I have a whole process video explaining all of the details as well, so be sure to check that out. This layout includes three photos that are very, very similar. Which helps tell the story. I hope you enjoy!

Some times we get photos from our home printers or from third party printing sites that didn't come out the way we anticipated. The photo in my example was not processed correctly on the right hand side which you can see in the beginning of the video. However, I figured that instead of requesting a new one and jumping through hoops that I could make it work. Please enjoy the process video below.

I created two cluster groups to help balance the page. One is over the poorly printed part of the photo and the other is on the opposite side. Balancing your page is key for an aesthetically pleasing layout! All of the products used in this project are…
