Cards and Scrapbook Pages I Made in January

 I had a very creative January!  I do find this is typically the time of year I have the most time to sit and create and play.  With all the new crafting supplies I got for Christmas I was excited to jump in and decided to try quite a few new cardmaking techniques.  I finished up all the scrapbook pages from our Tennessee trip last year and have already sorted my photos to get started on our Disney pages from August.  Cards: Double stencil technique My first big project using Copic markers! Trying a new technique using an essential glue pad and mica powders another new technique using emboss resist called "Joseph's coat" Scrapbook pages: Linking up with: Wednesday Link Party,
