Graduation Announcement

Have you ever tried printer embossing? Yes, it's possible! As you can see from the photo, this technique requires speed and accuracy! We had to put the powder on as the printer was ejecting the paper in order for the embossing powder to stick to the ink. It does not work on the "best photo" setting because printing takes longer and the ink is dry before the paper comes out of the printer.

Here is the finished announcement. The details are printer embossed on vellum. In Joy!

Recipe Tins

Here are some recipe tins that my sister Donna and her aunt Martha created for their kitchens. The tins were purchased at Hobby Lobby. They covered with designer series paper and accented with chipboard. Isn't it kind of annoying that the chipboard letters don't have duplicate vowels? Oh well, Donna came up with a creative solution for hers by using a tag and stamping the word "recipe". In Joy!
