8/23 Ann Katrin's thicker technique

Use your thickers!

I have a lots of thickers and sometimes I need them in different colors and
now I will show you how:

I often use: glimmer mist (spray paint), paint, ink and glitter and thickers in foam:

I love to use paint on thickers, it’s perfect for the dark colored/black thickers:

I often use ink (chalk ink) to get a soft look:

For a dirty/vintage look, I use distress ink:

Glimmer mist gives almost the same results as ink and you can vary the colors:

It’s all about the glitter, I love glitter. You can use it above paint/ink or just like this on the top:

Thanks for reading and I hope you got some tip and maybe you can use some of your leftovers?

Get to know your design team: Kelly Haugen

1. Name Kelly Haugen

2. Where are you from: Barnesville, MN

3. Tell us about you.....
I’m a 32 year old wife, mother, avid scrapper, wanna-be photographer, equestrian and lover of all things glittery/sparkly/bling-related! I’ve been scrapping on and off for about 7 years but recently started getting serious about scrapping after taking a class at my local scrapbook store in 2007. (aka stopped using computer printer stationary for some of my pages. ~blush~)
I love color, trying new techniques, stickles and sewing on layouts. My favorite subjects to scrap include my daughter, hubby, brother and pets (horse, 2 cats & dog).

4. Tell us about your babies.....
Makenna just turned 1 yo June 6. She is a wild woman...definitely keeps this momma on her toes! She is a high maintance, impatient drama queen just like her father ~wink~. She loves wearing my shoes and carrying anyone's purse. I think we have a fashionista on our hands:)

5. your favorite scrappy supply Bling, stickles, glitter....good thing we have a girl!! Anything that glitters or is sparkly!!

6. your favorite must have baby item
: The Boppy! I will probably have to buy a new one for the next baby...when that time comes;)

7. your blog address

8/08 Kristin's Accordian Mini Tin Album tutorial

1. Select a tin (altoid, and tobacco tins work great)
2.Apply a coat of paint to the interior and exterior of tin (I used 
spray paint)
3. Measure tin and cut two sheets of paper slightly smaller to fit 
front and back sides of tin.
4.Used Mod Podge (or similar product) to adhere sheets of paper. I used 
two coats (One to adhere the paper to the metal, and a second over the 
paper to “seal” and protect it).

5. Cut a sheet of cardstock into strips, width of strips should be approximately ¼” shorter than the length Of your tin. Accordian fold strips of cardstock. (I used a scoring blade on my paper trimmer to score the sheet approx ¼” shorter than the width of your tin.)
6. Use a bone folder to make folded edges crisp.
7. To adhere strips of cardstock (you can make as many as you like), 
overlap the ends and glue w/a strong paper adhesive (I like Yes paste).
8. Make a small cut off each corner of the folded papers (this makes it 
easier to open and close the album without the corners snagging on the 
rounded edges of the tin)

You will then need to adhere the two ends of cardstock to the lid and base of tin 
(I used Mod Podge)....and decorate as you see fit!
I printed up all my photos in wallets and found them to be the perfect size!

Get to know your design team: Heather Gerrits

1. Name: Heather Gerritis

2. Where are you from: Palmer, AK

3. Tell us about you..... I am a 33 year old SAHM of two crazy kids. My husband of seven years and I have a full house with the four of us plus two cats and a seven month old puppy. I spend most of my time chasing my kidlets but when I get a chance to wind down I spend my time scrapbooking. I love doing anything that is crafty and am usually the one in the family to make gifts as presents instead of buying them.

This is the first design team I've been on besides my LSS so I am pretty excited about right now!!!

4. Tell us about your babies.....Ah, my babies are growing up way too fast! Gavin is five and Bekah is two. They are my pride and joy and are so full of energy!!

5. your favorite scrappy supply: This is tough...I would have to say (if I can only pick one) my Martha Stewart butterfly punch is definitely my most sought after item.

6. your favorite must have baby item: Can I say a babysitter?! LOL Seriously I find that I don't get away too much to spend time for myself, so having a babysitter really helps me find myself again.

7. your blog address:
