Jack and Jill (and Julie!) A Tutorial



This is ReNae from the FotoBella Design Team!  
I recently had the opportunity to play with Echo Park's Jack & Jill "I want it all Bundle" by FotoBella.The paper collection or "Bundle" we are featuring today is from the Jack and Jill paper collection by Echo Park.  Beautiful shades of red and green with complementary shades of yellow and neutrals. Perfect for a little girl, daughter, sister or niece. 
The Bundle includes chipboard accents, decorative brads, enamel dots, designer stamps and a designer die.  We have included an ephemera pack with tons of die cuts, beautiful designer paper including 3"x 4" and 4" x 8" Journaling Cards, (perfect for pocket letters or Project Life style scrapbooking) coordinating washi tape, and Alpha and Element stickers complete the bundle.
I decided to make a tag for today's post, and for fun I decided to incorporate another great product available at FotoBella.com.  
I used a technique called "Paper Piecing" to make the dolls.  It's a fun and easy way to step up your stamping!  Here's how!
Select your stamp and place on acrylic block.
Stamp the doll image on your background paper.

Next, stamp the articles of clothing...skirt, shirt and shoes.  Also stamp the doll's hair. Choose your paper accordingly.

With a sharp scissors, cut out the hair, shirt, skirt and shoes.
This is how it will look.  Once you get the look you want, adhere the clothing, hair and shoes to the corresponding stamped image.
It's that easy!  And it's fun!  You can create all kinds of different looks just by using different paper!
The patterned paper is like fabric!  You can stamp as many skirts and shirts as your paper and imagination allows!

I hope you'll try Paper Piecing the next time you stamp...and be sure to  check FotoBella.com for the Jack and Jill Bundle
and our large selection of Julie Nutting stamps!

Happy Creating!
ReNae
