Just a little touch..

Hello there! Welcome to Day 3 of our CHA Blog Hop! We are adding sneaks and our show photos to the gallery as often as possible, so be sure to check them out! There are a few companies that made us wait a long time for sneak peeks, and so there are new sneaks posted at Lily Bee, Basic Grey, and October Afternoon.

Take a look, then leave us a comment telling us if any of the newest sneak peeks have jumped to the top of your must-have list! We will draw a winner from all the comments on Monday. The winner will win a $10 certificate to the store (so you can stock up on your newest favorites!).

Don't forget to hop around the DT member's blogs! There are a few more giveaways to be found today!

Now, on to some cool tips from Michelle:

Just a little touch can add a much needed impact in your LO's.


Hi there, Michelle M. here. I wanted to talk about my LO "You COMFORT me" for my first blog post. I had such a great time creating my first page for YSS. I was lucky enough to get to play with Echo Park Little Boy line, it worked perfectly for CCG Palette 175 Challenge and of course all my little boys pictures.


You COMFORT Me!



I wanted to share a quick and SUPER easy tutorial with you guys. I wanted to show how such a small touch can impact your LO. I knew I wanted to have a ton of white space in my LO but I didn't want it to be boring. So I busted out my stamps, dusted them off and used them on my LO adding a much needed dimension.

Look below.

Here is the LO bare with just pattern paper, inking and stamped background. If you cant see, here is a closer look below.

Now I know it's not much, but in person trust me it makes a difference. I know you have a stamp or if you are like me hundreds of stamps lying around waiting to be used. I want you to take them out and give them the much needed attention and play with them. Have fun and create backgrounds or if you are brave enough create your own pattern paper.


Go wild, but most of all have fun creating!
