Hello everyone! While we're busy preparing for our October release, our friend Patricia is taking over the blog today!

Patricia Roebuck is one of those crafters who are super talented, yet so sweet, so humble and so kind. We got to know each other through a design team a couple years ago and finally met at CHA earlier this year! We happened to have some friends in common and got to chat in real life! I am a card maker but I adore all my scrapbooker friends! I guess our passion and love for life is the bond?

A Project Life Spread - From Star to Finish

Hello!  I am so thrilled to be here.  I hope to do Nina’s stamps and dies justice.  They are such a great quality and so many different options with just one set.  I used Be My Guest stamp setBowtiful stamp setStarry Night stamp setTiny Circle Die, and Tiny Star Die for my Project Life spread.
Because I wanted to incorporated a lot of stamping, after I picked out my photos, I chose pattern papers that complimented my photos and that would work great with the stamps.

For my title or week card, I used the Tiny Circle DieTiny Star Die, and Be My Guest stamp set.

I added stamping on several of the cards and/or photos.  I love how the “HELLO” from the Bowtiful stamp set fit perfectly on a label to layer with my journaling.  And the Starry Night stamp set worked so well with this photo and pattern paper.

Using Starry Night stamp set, I stamped directly on my photo with a black permanent ink, added soft texture with the stars onto this die cut, and added more layers over this pattern paper.

The stamps and dies worked so well with my Project Life spread.  They added texture, color, and sentiments.
