I'm so excited!!! Memory Miser is now carrying the entire Chomas Creations line of goodies!  You can visit Memory Miser here... Memory Miser

And of course, it wouldn't be a post without something else I've done! hehe! Here is a layout using a new metal sheet I discovered while shopping at my local Joanns!

These 4x4 metal sheets work great with the Chomas Creations embossing/scoring kit! They had 8 sheets in a pack, I got the pink and black, but there a lot more colors available as well.
I decided to use the sheets as a collage type background! To get the look, I flipped the metal sheets colored side down on my embossing mat. The good thing about this is the mat is see through, so you can line up the metal sheets on the mat to the lines in Design Studio! Super simple!

I then embossed my design, cleaned it up a little with a paper stump, then sanded off the debossed image, & attached them to the page.
The title on here was also done in Design Studio, to really make it pop I used the new silver mini gel pens in the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder to draw the title . Then I used the shadow feature, adding this to another layer in DS, and then cut around the title. I love the way it makes it POP!


And again I used one of my mini gel pen journaling circles on this page made using the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder! You can get directions on how to do these here mini gel pen journaling circles



And here is the finished page, all put together!

Wow, what a great thing for you about Memory Miser picking up your products! Congrats!. I wish I had a Joanns a little closer to me so I could check their store, sadly it is a two + hour drive one way. I have your gel pen holder adn I use it all the time, I just made an ABC deck of Princess cards for my daughters to reinforce their learning in a fun way and outlined everything instead of cutting- phew nothing that tiny would cut.
Thanks for the exciting giveaway

I love my embosser and have not purchased any metal yet. Have been on a vellum kick, LOL. Wish I had a Hobby Lobby or JoAnns near me. Only have the pastel pens and need to get me some metallics. They would be so perfect for all the Halloween cards I need to make.

I have all 4 of your tools and love them but if I have to pick 1 I would say the embossing. It is so much fun and so many new things to discover. Now to JoAnn's to see if they have the metal sheets. Mine is small so they don't carry things the super stores do.
