Stamp Simply Day 11

Welcome to Day 11 of Stamp Simply Celebrates! If you are new here, check out Party Central for a full rundown of our 12 day schedule. Feel free to jump in anytime at all!!!

Anyone can play ANY of the challenges by ANY of the hostesses during our 12 days of Stamp Simply Celebrates!!! You DO NOT need to have a Blog to play — uploading your project to SCS (Splitcoaststampers.com) is not only permissible, but HIGHLY ENCOURAGED. When doing so, use the KEYWORD SSC08. Thanks!

Well, it's a fun day filled with more challenges and more blog candy...fun! So here are the deets for today...copied courtesy of Sharon herself! :)

AJ Otto - The Willow Garden - Are you wrapping gifts yet? Probably! I’ll bet you need some pretty tags to dress those packages up — well, be sure to check in on AJ’s Featured Project today to see all her Gift Tags. And then play AJ’s Challenge so you, too, can have some nice gift tags on hand!!! Be sure to stop in at AJ’s today!

You can see more tag samples by checking out the Blogs of: Heather, Janine, LeAnne, Jerri and Sharon .

Jerri Jimenez - A Touch of Grace - Today Jerri will grace us with her Featured Project which is a beautiful 6 x 6 Scrapbook she made, which is certain to be a real treat for the eyes. Jerri also has BLOG CANDY to offer today (think scrapbooking made easy), so be sure to stop in to see Jerri!!!
I was inspired by Jerri to scrap! I really hadn't planned on doing a whole book...but then I had an idea. A funny thing happened on the way to that idea! lol! Computer problems...which led to about 3 hours of interacting with Dell while they tried to fix my computer...which led to them actually messing up my Photoshop...which led to a panic attack..how the heck was I going to edit my photos! lol! So my scrapbook is really on the front page!

Here's the cover of my book.... ***Finally updating....Just to explain a little....I purchased a CD of different fonts that I bought specifically for this little book! Why? Because I really hate my handwriting and I wanted to make sure that the journaling page looked right. Ok...page one...finished without the CD.....

Page two...the page that would really, REALLY need the CD....

...blank! Why is it blank? Because even after installing...and then uninstalling....and re-installing...is that even a word?....NOTHING! I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get this darn thing to work! Ugh!


Moving on to the last and final page of this mini book.....
I really wanted to try my hand at a hybrid page. I've never done it before...this CD would have been perfect for that....and for some unknown reason...it doesn't want to work for me! Is it because of whatever they did last night? No clue! Ok...back to the rest of the post from late, late, LATE last night! :)

Other scrapbook samples can be seen by checking out: Barb Once I figure out how to open the rest of my programs...the ones that no longer want to work! I will journal and photo the rest of this book for y'all! How frustrating is that!

...moving on!

Deb Saaranen - Dream in Color - Deb has an offering of BLOG CANDY for us today!

Jerri Jimenez - A Touch of Grace - Jerri also has BLOG CANDY to offer today so be sure to stop in to see Jerri!

I'm off! I will be back in a few with more for you! :) Have a wonderful night!
