Emerging Color Stamping Technique

Ok, I'll admit it...I really love stamping and the more I stamp the more I want to stamp. It's a wonderfully vicious circle. Emerging Color is one of those techniques that have some very basic and constant elements to it, but the creative license is all yours in how you present it. I'm sure if you Google or YouTube you will find a ton of tutorials and a lot of them will be very similar. Emerging Color boils down to this one word: resist.

A face lift for my blog

I am happy to unveil my new blog!!  Let me just say that Casey at HotBliggityBlog is nothing short of uh-mazing!!!  She is sooooooo good at what she does and was so very patient with my crazy questions and little tweaks here and there.  LOVE YOU CASEY!!!!!

Let me take you on a short tour!  At the top is a menu.  You can see that I have a link for a Tutorials page.  Here you will be able to find all of my tutorials at the click of a button!  I will also begin building my galleries so keep checking back to see what I've done.  My life coach LOL, and dear friend Robin Shakoor, has talked me into building a scrappy resume.  BTW, Robin turned me onto Casey!  Thanks sweetie!  You can also email me if you have a question.  Cool, huh?!

I'm really excited about my slider bar at the top.  Right now I have my tutorials featured but will be mixing that up as I go along.  I also love the boxes over on the right side that have tabs in them.  Check them out! The second box has a section of my own creation called Neighborhood News.  I am so proud of my scrappy sisters and when they have exciting and great things happen I want the whole world to know.  This section is dedicated to my friends and all of their accomplishments.  Without all of you, this craft of ours would be a very boring place!  Love you XOXOXO

Another tab is titled Challenges.  I am going to be posting some challenges that I am hosting, a few challenge sites that are run by friends of mine as well as blog hops.  My archives and favorite blogs can be found under these tabs as well.

I hope you like my new diggs!!!!  Thanks for stopping by!

XO
Lisa

Hi Lisa,
I love the new blog it looks great. Casey does do a wonderful job and she is so fast. One day I will be having her do my blog redesign also. I so far have only had her do my blog expansion.
