A crop party..finally!

Hi everyone!  A week from now i'll be attending my first crop party and i'm sooo excited! I've been wanting to go to a crop party for a while now but there aren't really any in my area. Luckily I finally found one just an hour away. Anyway, today i'm sharing two projects.

I made this nautical page for pictures taken last weekend, seeing as I have alot of pictures from the beach (since I go about every week) and no beach themed pages. I used the Stand and Salute cartridge for the anchor, and embossed it with the swiss dots embossing folder. And the crabs were made with the Martha Stewart crab punch.

After getting the new Tim Holtz stamps I couldn't wait to use them and share.

All of the stamps I used came from the Curious Possibility set. I also used Tim Holtz distress ink, Peeled Paint for the stamps, and Walnut Stain to distress the edges. Walnut Stain is my absolute favorite ink! I do have some of the other color but I find myself using walnut stain in most of my cards and scrapbook pages.

Well thats all for today, I hope you enjoyed it!
If you haven't entered to win my blog candy there's still time.
Until next time, happy crafting.
