"What's New" Blog Hop

So Whats new? Thank you Angie for hosting this blog. :) If you are just starting please head to . Angie had asked that we used at least a couple of new things or new to use and a new technique. :) Well I can tell you I did just that. I had just got a few new things that I had never used before and found a really cute idea. Let me just tell you I see making a lot of what I will show you.

My new items that I used for my projects
The Big Bite
Seam Binding
"Plastic Paper"
DCWV The Mod Retro pack
paper bags

 That is the finished card that I made using all the new iteams listed. Now you might be asking what is "Plastic Paper". I will tell you I found a really great website and found this idea., I do believe this lady thinks of everything. You can find the video . I do have to tell you that I dont use an iron that often that this was a little tricky at 1st and make sure to do it on a surface that is heat proof. I wasnt thinking that and almost had a problem. LOL but the problem did go away.. :)

I really did like this idea. Tips I can give you is remember to keep the iron moving or you will melt the plastic. Make sure the iron isnt crazy like mine.. For some reason the one I have didnt have marked settings. but then again I cant complain it was in a box from Walmart that was $20. As you can see I also used just acylic paint to paint the bags. I used the basic brand from michaels. The plastic paper is also my new technique.  I used the pastic paper to make a cute little tag. The stamp I used was also new. I also dont sew and on this card I did. I cute the same patteren on paper bag and used the bag as the patteren paper material you would find when buying a pattern from mccalls or any of the other companies.

I also have a new technique for card folding. I have the photo up of the card already up on my blog but I will post it again. Just to let you know I found this card idea from
