Thomas Kinkade

You may or may not know that we like Thomas Kinkade paintings out our house. As a matter of fact we have a Victorian Light Gallery Proof signed by Mr. Kinkade that hangs in our living room. Anyway, when Cornish Heritage Farms came out with TK stamps awhile ago I knew I had to have at least one and went ahead and bought Forest Chapel and Village Christmas stamps. I finally worked up the courage to try to use my Forest Chapel stamp today and well...it was a little more difficult than I had hoped but over all I think this is pretty good. I had a heck of a time getting the stamp to be level on the paper. The SAMJ wouldn't work so I did best by eyeballing it but never got a straight image. I also really wanted to use the scripture verse but wasn't sure what to do with it so it kind of looks like an after thought. Why am I telling you what I don't like about it? Because, I think it helps others to make better choices and we all need to know that everyone makes things they aren't necessarily thrilled with. I am encouraged enough to try again though.

How about seeing something I do like? LOL! I made this 12x12 scrapbook page at Regionals last weekend with the stamp set So Much. I really like the simplicity of this page and the amount of room it gives you for either two pictures or one picture and some journaling. See the embossed 'dots' around the Soft Sky circle? That was made with a Crop a dile! How cool is that...you can emboss with it too! It is quite the tool, I'm tellin' ya!

I hope you all have a great Friday night and I'll see ya tomorrow!
