June Wedding Blog Hop with Clearsnap Day 2!

Welcome to day 2 of the Clearsnap and Something Tattered cross-promotion! 

From June 20 to the 22nd, we are showcasing projects created by both of our Design Teams. 

Here's a little about Clearsnap®:

Finding new ways to help our customers add color to craft projects is our passion. From our beginnings in a garage workshop more than 20 years ago, we've grown into a leading US manufacturer in the paper crafts industry.
In 1986, Clearsnap®developed the Rollagraph® roller stamp system, beginning a legacy of innovation. Rollagraph® introduced the world to the self-inking rolling rubber stamp with interchangeable ink cartridges and stamp wheels.
With the ColorBox® line of inkpads, Clearsnap® introduced many features common on today's inkpads, such as the raised inking surface which allows the use of any size inkpad with any size stamp. Cat's Eye® inkpads brought high quality inks to the market at an affordable price. Petal Point® and Paintbox® inkpads offer removable plates or petals in a multi-color palette.
Clearsnap® uses only the finest quality materials in our products. When we develop a new inkpad, applicator or embellishment, we put it through its paces. We invite some of the best, most experienced and demanding artists to test it for us. Products that survive and shine through this process make it into our catalog and onto our web site.
And here's a little about Something Tattered:
Something Tattered Design Team
  When Beth began hunting wallpaper for the bandboxes she was creating in 1990 it started a life of antiquing adventures and a passion for old paper. In 1993 Beth’s wallpaper covered boxes we featured in Victoria magazine and Beth’s sister Marilyn Krehbiel joined her in the pursuit. Marilyn’s business Hannah’s Treasures evolved into purveying historic wallpapers for movie sets. Beth peddled her boxes to the coast of California and settled in the west. In 1997 Beth married Peter Neumann, son of a letterpress printer, who shared Beth’s appreciation for the old paper arts. In 2011 Peter and Beth began Something Tattered in response to Beth’s newest pursuit, Wedding Paper designs from her vast collection of antique paper. In 2013 Something Tattered launched the current line of craft stamps and in 2014 the new antique wallpaper stamps were added bringing the adventure full circle. We hope you will share the passion.
From June 20 to the 22nd, we are showcasing projects created by both of our Design Teams. 
We are so glad you took the time to visit as our Designers have some beautiful and inspiring projects to share with you today. We were challenged  to create Wedding themed projects without using patterned paper. The designs you see were created exclusively with Clearsnap inks and Something Tattered stamps!

Hello Friends! I wanted to share a little mini wedding receipt organizer/scrapbook I made using Something Tattered Stamps and Color Box ink pads.
My Grandma had kept the receipts for everything from my Mom and Dad's wedding and it was so fun looking through them.
Sooooo, I came up with an idea for this little keepsake album. It's made out of library pockets, so there is plenty of room for all of your receipts, some pictures and journaling.
I have a video I made a while ago that shows the technique I used to bind the pockets together, you can see it here.(I used a little different library pocket, but you'll get the idea)
I used 5 pockets that where tea stained with walnut ink. (It comes in a powder and you mix in water and spray or dab on)

The "Hinges" that hold the album together are from a digital collage sheet from my shop, as is the rose picture. I inked everything up with Color Box Pigment Ink in Copper. It's hard to tell in the pictures, but it really adds some glimmery shine.

All the Stamps used in this little mini are from Something tattered. LOVE these stamps. So pretty and romantic.

I used the Pigment copper to stamp the image. 

Pretty Pink seam binding holds the album closed.

I've stamped and added pretty journal cards in each of the pockets.

The rest of the images were made with Color Box Crafter's Ink Pad in Bark.
I added some flowers and bling,

These stamps are so detailed and the Crafter's Ink gives great crisp lines. By the way, it can be used on paper, fabric, wood and more. I was impatient waiting for it to dry, so I used my heat gun to set it.

This mini is small, but full of room for pictures and journalling.

It's hard to see, but I cut tiny pearls from Prima bling and added them to the scroll work.

You could add even more pockets by just gluing the mats on 3 sides. I didn't do that on this one, but it is an option. 

This project was pretty quick and would make a beautiful gift for the Bride to be.
Thanks so much for peeking!

 Here is a little something special for your wedding Maid of Honor - a handmade gift box to hold a pretty piece of jewelry for her to wear on the big day. I created the background using 2 brand new Clearsnap chalk ink colors, then stamped with gesso and pigment ink on top.
