Storage: Transfering stamps

I am always on the lookout for better ways to store my stamps, so when I found Robyn's videos on Youtube regarding re-mounting her wood mounted rubber stamps I knew I had something. This week I received my Sunday International EZ Mount sheets and started the transfer.
I was stunned with how quick the process turned out to be. I transferred 8 sets in the span of an hour. I was able to remove the stickers from the wood mounts showing the stamped images.
All I need now is to go get CD cases to store them in.

Update: Team potluck

This Friday our team came together at our first potluck. There was so much yummy food, and we all felt we had to do it again. I am learning SO much stuff that I have been unable to create as many cards as I used to. I am working on multi-tasking on the weekends.

Altered project: And the winner is....

Alas, the pumpkin contest was won by the team that created "McPUMPKIN"....In my team's hearts "DIVA" was the winner. I can hardly wait to see what the other holidays will bring!

WW: Historic CHANGE

This is a digital image that expresses how I feel about the history that was made last night. This country needed a change and OUR new president will bring us that.

EXTRA! EXTRA! - Honorable mention

On Wednesday I received a request to have some of my work featured on Mrs Grossman's newsletter. I am honored to have received this recognition. Mrs Grossman's has always been one of my favorite sticker companies.

Altered project: Diva T Mobila

I got a standing ovation when my teammates saw my rendition of a pumpkin Diva. My carving tools ended up being MIA so I had to make due with an X-acto knife and 2 paring knives. I was happy with the results. In my own true fashion I had to add rhinestones and glitter.
Embellishments: T-pins, Me and My big ideas (diva), Doodlebug jewels, Prima Say it in crystals, blue glitter, Blue on purple Glam Trimz (wig), Stampin Up pretties kit rhinestone brad, Heidi Swapp crown, Bazzill big brad, SU chocolate chip stampin marker, Uniball signo white gel pen
