InStyle Stamps New Release & Tutorial

Its the final day of release week at InSTyle Stamps! We have peeked some really cute new images this week, and they will all be available tonight in the ISS store! To check back on other peeks, please visit the InSTyle Stamps blog.

Today, we are peeking Dandelion Chloe! and I made her into a little notebook. We get a gentle reminder of due dates every so often and I am often one who waits til the last minute (who, me??) So, I made a little notebook to put the dates of all my DT projects in: due dates, which image, if its for a challenge, etc.

I am using my new Carla Cutter for this project. Kinda like a Bind-it-all, but cheaper and easier! I have all of my supplie gathered.

First I slide a piece into the cutter system (retails for only about $30!!)

Then you insert the punch part of the mechanism up to the groove (fits perfectly) and punch

Keep sliding the punch part up and realign and punch. Thats it! There are notches all the way up so it fits right into the groove to line it up, no fudging and fiddling!

Lastly insert the coils. They slide in super easy and come in like a dozen colors! Then voila!

Didn't she turn out cute?? I paper pieced her skirt to match the background paper (by Magenta). She is cut out with Spellbinders Labels 10 and sponged to the inside with Papertrey Ink Summer Sunrise.

Thanks for stopping in today! I will try to post something this weekend, but life will be crazy busy: Homecoming Game tonight Davie vs. Mt Tabor; Karate testing in the am; Heather's baby girl McKenna's 1st Bday tomorrow; and Cheer Extreme Showcase on Sunday!! Plus of course a house full of wild teenagers again I am sure. (Love you guys!)
