7 Gypsies Solo Shadowbox Tray

Hi Everyone
This is a 6x6 7Gypsies Solo Shadowbox tray that I decorated today, and I must say, I'm tickled pink by it! It literally took under 30 to put together! I used Prima Printer Tiles and 24 Chipboard pack for the majority of the embellishments.  That chipboard pack is such a great deal! $6, they're stick back, and the sizes vary! I've rocked out some great projects with this pack and still have a bunch left! I used Tim Holtz Tissue tap on the edges of the frame, and then distressed it a bit with Distress Tea Dye and Vintage Photo. I also Black Soot Distress Inked the embellishments to "tone" them down to match the black frame.  The paper is Prima as well.  I used TH Crackle Rock Candy paint in the little squares,  and Glossy Accents and Crackle Accents on the embellishments.  Lastly I finished off a metal Pebbles Flower with Adirondack Alcohol Ink.  
Thanks for stopping by

**NEW** Scrapbook Club at The Inked Stamper

Starting Wednesday October 19 at 12:00-1ish (depends on how chatter you are :) ), and running EVERY 3rd Wednesday of the month will be the Scrapbooker's Club! This is for all you SAHM whose kid's are in school, for you lucky retired ladies, or for you ladies who just have a spare afternoon that you want to spend scrapping! This is going to be a fun, relaxing coffee group that will get you out of the house for a bit and a chance to visit.
You will need to  bring your basic tool kit (scissors, all adhesives, ect) to all classes and you will make a 12x12 Page. Everyone's page will be slightly different as I will be putting out the bags of accessories and you will get to choice which is best for you.  
How it will work is, you will need to commit to 6 months of Clubs at $5/month paid for in advance, so a $30 ONE off fee, and this will cover ALL 6 Layouts!!! Normally a class is a minimum of $20 so this is a very good deal! Each month after you make your gorgeous page, you will then shop! You will have to spend a minimum of $30 each Club date on anything you want in the store. On your 6th Month (so March if you start in Oct) you will receive 25% off your purchase that month as a THANK YOU for joining the Club!
You may jump in and join again, have a friend jump in and join when ever, but you must join for 6 months in a row to receive this fabulous deal. If you CAN NOT attend one month, no problem, just come pick up your kit up to go and make your purchase. This is NOT available as a TO GO class all the time; this is an Attendance Club.
I hope this makes sense as I know I can be confusing with my words! PLEASE let me know if you have any questions; ask on here or phone the shop. Please phone ASAP to register. (780)458-2422
Thanks so much
FYI feel free to bring your supplies and scrap afterwards as well! Card Club will be announce shortly!

Happy 16th B-day Kendra

HI Everyone
Today my niece turns 16, so I thought I better make her a "Sa-weet" card. This is what I came up with, I love it..hope she does too!  I phone her today and left her a voice message of me singing that is going to be tough to beat! LOL!  
The background chevron is Amy Tangerine Sticky back Fabric; the rest is made from Echo Park's Happy Days Sticker Sheet and matching paper.  I stock the bottle caps in the shop; and the crown was from my stash of goodies that I've collected over the years.  I took a close up of the tag, I used Glossy Accents ( CAN not craft with out this stuff) to make her poofy.
Thanks for stopping by
