Collab with the 2 L’s – Tis the Season with Essentials by Ellen

Hello! Hello! Hello! I am so excited to be here today because me and Laura from Making Cards is Fun (yes, the sweet and cute and TALENTED 17 year old) have decided to team up with a fun collaboration video series we call Collab with the Two L’s…… 🙂 Each video, we will take the same stamp set and create something with it. It will be fun to see our different takes on the same set!!!

Today we are using Tis the Season from the Essentials by Ellen line… I LOVE this stamp set. It is full of fun images and sentiments and it just rocks! I am also using one of the dots from Boken Dots to add some polka dots to the sweater, lol! Great way to stretch your stamps even more….. I also created my own custom background with one of the sentiments from the set!



See the polka dots? HE HE HE! I want this sweater!


You can watch the video right here on my blog or over on my youtube channel in HD!



Be sure to head on over to Laura’s blog and see what she created with the same set! I hear there is a wicked cool Santa hanging out over there…….
