Scrappy strips tutorial, or another way to use some of those leftover random pieces of paper you've been keeping!

Hello fellow Stampers!  

So you may have seen a video or two about this "scrappy strips" technique and are curious to try it.  Well that is what I did,  and I got hooked trying out different patterns and paper sizes.  Here is a tutorial with my spin on scrappy strips!  Unless I am doing a fun fold design, I tend to gravitate to what I call the traditional card size.  Photo below.

God Bless and Happy Stamping!



Let's experiment with the Retiform Technique All occasion card and Father's day card

Hello Stampers!
I love sharing what I have learned and so today I am giving a tutorial using a new (to me) technique, called Retiform.
I came across this technique during one of my many explorations on Pinterest.   Usually before bed at night, I browse through some of my pins on Pinterest or search for new things to pin.  When my interest is peaked by something I see, I try to go into the studio to play and see if it speaks to me. 

Welcome to my first blog post from River View Creative Studio!

 Welcome to my first blog post as a Stampin up! demonstUNADJUSTEDNONRAW thumb 38d6rator.  In my blog I  will be sharing things I have learned, techniques and tutorial projects.  I hope that you will subscribe to my webpage and together we can explore all that Stampin up! has to offer.

For my first tutorial I am sharing a card that I recently created to send out to friends and family to let them know that they are in my thoughts and prayers and to let them know we will get through this together. We will look forward to better days ahead. It is a beautiful card and uses stamps from four different sets.  Of course if you do not currently have all of the sets you can choose stamps from your collection that speak to you personally or you may place an order with me for any sets you are missing. 

The four sets are as follows:  Perfectly Framed, Positive Thoughts, Fable Friends and Grace's Garden.
