Celebrate Layout and Snap Tags by Shannon Tidwell and Britt Bass

Shannon Tidwell here today to share a KI Memories layout using Mini Celebrations! What a cheerful page the birthday papers and embellishments make! I cut the Birthday Banner Ruffle Paper and used it as a border at the top and bottom of my page. The Happy Birthday Double-Sided Cardstock has so many goodies on it that I was able to piece the page together mostly just using that one sheet of paper! For a little extra sparkle I used the Sprinkles Bejeweled Paper as a backdrop for the page.

Oh Snap! Camera Bag Tags

Hi there Hampton fans!  It is Britt Bass here, sharing a cute and functional project with you using Hampton Art liscensed stamps, embossing powder, and Clearsnap pigment ink and watermark ink.

I recently got a brand new Nikon D3100 and I am in LOVE!  I went all-out and got the big case and everything, so I wanted a crafty way to decorate it, but also a functional ID tag in case my 'baby' were ever to be lost (heaven forbid!).  When I saw the Echo Park 'Oh Snap!' stamp set I knew it would be perfect!

I stamped the doily image, the "smile" sentiment, and the "Oh, Snap" image with Clearsnap pigment ink and fussy cut them.  I used some markers to add a little color to the camera image and a border around the "smile".  I laminated them and added gromlets.

I used a chipboard camera as a template and cut the large camera image from cardstock.  I heat embossed the entire camera surface twice in order to get full coverage.  I added the stamped camera image and scalloped circle to create the "lens".  

On the back I added my name, address, and phone number.  I laminated the whole thing and added a gromlet.  I strung all the tags onto a re-purposed clip (from an old purse) and presto - it was finished and ready to hang on my precious new camera bag!
