I had a chance to play along with Stamping 411 sketch this week. My inspiration was this great new designer paper from Stampin Up called sweet and sour speciality. It is tough to see but it is embossed around the circles. I also learned from Angela McKay aka Northshorestamper.com, about matting when your image is bigger than your punches. Just cut 2 of punched pieces in half- (1) long way and (2) short way. Use those four pieces to matt behind your punched image.

I have been stamping for about 6 years. I became a Stampin Up demo in September 2006 and love every minute of it. I enjoy scrapbooking, knitting and teaching swimming. I am married to a great guy who supports my crazy stamping habit. I have two great boys 13 and 11.
