Design Team Highlight - Betty Dudley

Are you ready for another amazing layout from one of our fabulous design team members? This week I'm featuring this darling design from Betty Dudley, a talented scrapbooker who loves to feature photos of her grandchildren.

This sweet layout features stunning paper from Core-di-na-tions. See those fun swirls in the background of the base paper? They're revealed when you sand the paper! How cool is that?! I just used this paper on a project this week and I'm in love...very fun! Betty also used one of our $1.99 stamps from Imaginsce on her layout, the small leaves image found in the 'sisters' title section. A great accent! I also really like the way Betty put her photo and title on an angle. A wonderful twist on a traditional layout!

Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful work with us Betty!

Dreamweaver Stencils

Guess what I was busy doing yesterday? Filling our stencil wall with oodles of new holiday-themed stencils from Dreamweaver! Love the stencils!

Never used a metal stencil to create a card? It's a snap! All you need is a light box, stylus, stencil, and cardstock (all available at Wholly Scrap!) and then follow these instructions:

1. Lay the stencil on your cardstock and use low-tack tape to hold the stencil in place.
2. Turn the stencil over so it's resting on the light box.
3. Use your stylus to trace around the entire design...That's it!
4. Want to add color? Just turn your cardstock & stencil over, leave the stencil in place, and use an ink pad and stipple brush to color the image.
5. Remove stencil for beautiful results!

The above card was created using a Dreamweaver stencil. Want to know more? Stop by the store with any additional questions and to see our extensive line of card samples.
