Release Day!

It’s release day! and it’s gonna be a LOOOOONG one…LOL

Hiya sistahs!  I am just leaving home to go to Bellaland and I cannot access my computer at work…grrrrr…

So.. I have not introduced you to another new artist and I have a more formal bio coming but I will tell you what I feel about her first 🙂

Teresa Mcfayden is one of my art journaling “heroes”!  I have taken every single one of her online classes to date :)… she is so warm, so friendly and a phenomenal teacher.  Really.  So one day I shyly approached her and asked if she would share some of her “trademark” elements she uses on her art journaling pages.  and guess what?  SHE SAID YES!!!!  I was humbled.  I was so excited.. SO EXCITED.  So off to work we went together and had a blast.  Her signature is her layering on her pages… I try to copy her all the time but it never quite looks the same..LOL.   The greatest thing about these stamps is that if you are beginner, these will come in handy!  they are space fillers and fun to colour and just amazing to look at!

We are releasing 4 of her fun sets.. you will be so excited!  I know Teresa and I are :).   The funny thing also was that Teresa and I were looking for a name for the collection.  It took us 3 weeks for her to come up with it and I think it is just perfect.  “IN MY ELEMENT stamps” by Teresa Mcfayden.  LOVE IT.

Ok so I am going to post my quick sample of a journal page I used with them… you can actually guess where they are..  In. Love. With.Them.Honestly.

Another great thing about them, is that you can make backgrounds with them for cards, use them as a focal point on your cards and use them as journaling blocks on scrapbook pages.. very versatile!

Ok here it is 🙂

whole spread

closeup.. the little stack of circles are teresa's and the label on top right...

  16. Makalah says:

    I need to win the lottery or get a second job, seriously.

    My youngest sister just got married on the 19th, and Brigitte looks just like her, so that’s in my wish list.

    My all-time favorite food, which everyone knows, is ice cream, so Isabelle and her ice cream is on my wish list.

    Pippa and her flowers makes me think of doing yardwork with my mom and sisters when we were little, so now that’s on my wish list.

    And I love the image and the girl dancing with the dog AND the quote in Grandma’s Gramophone, so now that’s on my wish list. Which is good, because I need something other than Uptown Girls on there, right?

    So, since I don’t play the lottery or really want to have to get another job, who wants to buy me my birthday gift 5 months early? 😀

  17. Mary J says:

    Love ’em all, Em! Fave has to be my Uptown gals though!

  18. Pinky says:

    Order placed!!! 🙂 Now to stalk the man in brown. Then to find the time to get inky once they arrive. Great release Emily. You never disappoint.

  19. Leslie W. says:

    Love it all!

  20. Michelle Galloway says:
