LOL, how do you like that title?  Of course I am still showing you pictures of my projects using background stamps for the Creative Convention.  So technically, it is correct -- just had to throw that little "pun" in my title.  I am just going to plop in some pictures with this update because my show is on in 2 minutes (shows you where my priorities are, doesn't it).  So without any more to-do, here are my album pages using background stamps: 
My inspiration for this layout (on left) came from Page 16 of the Holiday Mini Catalog.  Tami Ackerson had shown me a card she made using this weaving technique, and I loved it so much that I knew I was going to do a page for my heritage album using the weaving.  I incorporated the sample on page 150, of the IB&C, also on this page and the one on the right.

Supplies Used:  Parlor Prints, Sweet Floral, and Wonderfully Worn Background Stamps; Well Worn and Paisley Prints Designer Series Paper; Gently Falling and Letter It Stamp Sets; River Rock, Wild Wasabi, Early Espresso, and Not Quite Navy Card Stock (and some more, but can't remember); and Lace Ribbon Border, Scallop Corner, and Corner Rounder Punches.
I used the Cracked Glass Technique on the Sweet Floral panel (embossed in White Embossing Powder).  Supplies:  Same as page on left, plus Heat and Stick Powder, Holly Berry Bouquet Wild Wasabi Button, and Linen Thread.

 As always, click on the pictures to enlarge so you can see the details.  I love to scrapbook, just wish I did it more often!!

Thanks for stopping by, and would love your comments/suggestions.

"It is good to give thanks to the Lord . . .."  --  Psalm 92:1
Thank you, Lord, for reminding me of the importance of expressing my gratitude for small favors.


  1. I love your heritage pages. I need to get busy and work on my scrapbooks. Maybe someday. I finally got the paint for the floor in my craft room and as soon as that is done I'll get the cupboards. Then maybe, just maybe I'll get organized. I think it'll be much easier to work when I know where everything is and not have to look through piles of stuff.

  2. Sandi, I love these pages...Believe it or not, I have been itching to get to my craft table. Will be home tomorrow afternoon. See yah

  3. Doing a nice job Sandi as always your pages are so nice to look at wish I had a book started.
