TEACHING Tuesday-July 15th

Lacey's favorite technique is embossing using the crop-o-dile. Check out this YouTube video showing how it's done.

Also, here are a couple of links to making some cute little flowers!!!

*Little Plaid Flower Tutorial- adorable flowers!! Gotta make some of these.It's so neat how you get the "puffiness" I never knew about this little trick!

* Paper flowers I've made some like this before, but thought I'd pass it on to you in case you haven't seent them before.

I used inspiration from that first tutorial to make a flower for a layout this past weekend. I didn't have the punch she used so I traced around a chipboard flower to get the flower shape to cut out. I love the trick to make it have shape. Very neat, and so easy. I can see myself doing it again - often.

I love these flower ideas. Although for the first one, I don't have an "embossing ball tool" is there anything else I could use in it's place? Any suggestions? I don't have a punch either, but just like most things I do, I'll trace it and cut it out...lol, it's always a labour of love!!
