Week 1: Behind the scenes with yours truly


Welcome! Could you use a little MOJO kick start?
Challenge yourself to use some of your old designer papers and supplies with a few new CSS goodies in your stash. For this week's Style Watch project, I used some old scraps of designer papers left over from previous projects and paired them up with a couple of my new stamp sets: Craft Room and Crafty Sentiments. I took the challenge a step further and made everything look a bit aged by using my Copic marker trio sets. I love that you can get your main color, highlight and shadow bundled together at Clear and Simple Stamps.  Blend a few earth tone trio sets together with your blender pen and you can easily age any image or card project.
