Have you ever felt like this lady? Oh, I know you have. Many times. Maybe even today! I'm feeling this way right now. My baby is graduating from High School and I'm on a terror cleaning up the house and getting ready for his open house. Between work and preparations, this pretty well represents me about 9 PM lately. Oh well. It's a small price to pay for having a happy celebration. I will say I have something a little stronger in that cup than coffee! Don't judge. My knees hurt! LOL.
This stamp is called 5518-Hot Mess Laugh Lines. I also used the 5061-Square Double Stitched Dies to cut out the main image and the mat. The sentiment is from the set. I cut it out with a die in the 5543-Journal Template Die Set. It's just one of several sentiment dies that are useable beyond journals.
Once in a while, I like to paper piece something into a stamped image. Today I stamped, cut out, and glued in the pattern for the chair with patterned paper. In this case, the paper pattern is way better than I could draw and color and I think it adds a lot to the image. It's very simple to do and has a great effect. I used a leftover piece of the paper under the image to tie it all together. I had a relatively small piece so I tore the edge at the bottom and cut a small piece off the top of it. Then I glued the thin piece at the top to give the illusion that it's underneath the whole image. It's a great way to fool the eye when you're short of paper! It can also save you from wasting paper by covering most of it up!
