Blog Hop for Lovebug Scrapbooking

Welcome to Lovebug Scrapbooking's "INSPIRE US!" blog hop!! Our blog hops take place on the last Saturday of every month. Thanks so much for joining us!

If you just happened by this blog and didn't realize a blog hop was taking place, please go back to Lovebug Scrapbooking and start the Hop. You won't want to miss all the inspiration from our members....... or the prizes :-)

Our theme for this month is CHRISTMAS!

I am showing you how to use toilet paper on your card.


You start with a stamp without a lot of little detail.

You put a single sheet of toilet paper on the stamp and then wet it thoroughly, put another toilet sheet on top of the last one and wet that one, keep doing this until you have 6 layers on. After this is done let it set until it is dry. This will take at least 3-4 hours to dry, you can use your heat gun but be careful and don't burn it. I let mine dry overnight.

After you take it off your stamp then you get to color it. I make my own spray so I sprayed it light red.




I added stickles and cut out the word with my sizzlits. Have fun and I hope you give it a try.


This blog hop will run from today, November 27th until November 29th.
We will be drawing for winners on November 30th.
