Training My Downline

I have been doing doing the 6x6 technique books for years. I have seen the ATC cards many times, I have even created a few. Seeing the new OnBoard Trio album at Convention really got me excited about training my down line using these little cards and this beautiful album.

My album is the first book like this I have ever attempted, I have never worked with the Mod Podge before, covering and finishing the album took about 4 hrs, I was surprised at how well it turned out.

OnBoard Trio Album Details: I covered the book using the new "Loves Me" Designer Paper from the Stampin' Up! Winter Mini Catalog,I absolutely love the look of the new designer paper. I added some sponging around the edges of the cover to achieve that "dirty" look. I wanted to add some of my personality and some layers, so I used "Sweet on You" and the "Headline Alphabet" to design the cover of my technique book, I truly love techniques and I am pleased with the way this turned out. I used the "Flirty" ribbon originals and twine to tie around the binding and to add a little personality.

ATC Details: I created 6 technique ATC cards for our first attempt at this new format. (Techniques include kissing, fun foam, painted pearls, poppin pastels, faux shaving cream and paper piercing) I incorporated the "Loves Me" designer paper along with several other stamp sets from the Winter Mini Catalog ("Love Matters", "Tagger's Dozen", "Like it a Latte", "Sweet On You")
