This Is My Life- There She Goes Release Week

Torico has designed a set that will be useful to card makers, scrapbookers, and multi-media artists alike. This Is My Life helps you tell your story, your way. Super cute images, fonts, and the number of sentiments and their possibilities are endless. 


I couldn't find a plain, larger brad in my stash, so I pulled out an old metal All Around the Block brad and decided to customize it. The brad had flowers debossed the metal. Holding it with plyers, I heated the metal front to the brad and dipped it in white embossing power. Heat it again so the embossing powder melts and repeat. After two coats the flower design was hidden and I had a nice white surface to stamp on. 


I'm entering this in the PlayDate Cafe color Challenge for this week. 

This is My Life is a 4x6 set that includes a total of 21 stamps and will sell for $15.00. Would you like to win the new This Is My Life stamp set? Here is what you need to do-visit the Trendsetter’s blogs that are participating in each of the blog hop challenges below and comment on their creations as you go. One of the Trendsetter’s blogs (from each hop day) will be randomly chosen as the ‘it’ blog and a winner will be picked using a random number generator from the comments left on that Trendsetter’s Blog Hop Challenge post. You will not know which blog has been chosen so the more you comment on the better your chances are of winning new stamps! The Blog Hop Challenges will be open until 5 PM Eastern Time Saturday, June 29th with the winner being announced during the release party chat.
