iPICKS, WEEK ONE

The time I spend reading other stamping blogs and lurking on Splitcoaststampers.com has, and continues to be, my greatest source of inspiration and stamping education. Each week, I'll be posting a selection of my favorite cards and projects for the week. There's no formal rules or guidelines ... just projects that catch my eye ... projects that I find exceptional or inspiring. Here's my iPICKS for Week One ...

Anthonette Chavez' Movie Ticket Holder replicating Danny Zuko's leather jacket from the movie, Grease (Chavez Designs).

Lynn's Cracked Harvest Home card (LW Designs).

Snow Falling On A Tree card by Crafty Girl Designs.

Advent Calendar by Dena Rekow, A Little Piece of Art Stampers.

Snowman Soup by Angie Kennedy Juda, Chic 'n Scratch.

A Crop-a-dile tip from Marie, Marie Loves To Stamp.

Gift Card Holder using the 5-in-1 Template by Tammy Fite, Stamp with Tammy.

Wendy Bond's Mojo sketch card (Bond Girl Bliss).

Jodi Collin's Hip-Hippo-Ray!!! card (Stamping A Latte).
