Stamp Out Autism Blog Hop


Welcome!  If you are here you may have just joined me from Mary Fish’s blog.  Or you may just be joining me and finding out you are about to go on a SUPER FUN Blog Hop Tour.  I can’t wait to show you what I created for this blog hop.

My project was so fun to make and has a lot of meaning as well.  My friend Katina who is part of this hop, has a little girl recently diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.  I went with Katina and her daughter the day she was evaluated and diagnosed.  Katina is a huge project life fan.  Since she is focusing on documenting her daughters journey, I thought I would make her a project life card and write a special note to her and her daughter on the back of it.  That way she would have a memento for her album from me.

Here is what I created.  I love the way it turned out and the watercolor technique I used to create the background is insanely fun.  BUT I WARN YOU, it’s also addicting.  You will want to keep making cards and projects with this technique.

I also put the background image on a card so that you could see what it would look like.  It was hard to photograph the Project Life card in use, since it wasn’t going in one of my albums.

Here is a video for you to check out how I created this awesome background.   Again, I warn you… it will make you an addict of watercolor background techniquing. (no that is not a word, until I add it to wikipedia, then it will be a real thing, ha!)

 WE really hope you are enjoying this hop.  A lot of love thought and care went into organizing this hop.  Our hope is that you will find it in your heart to donate to the Autism Society.  OR to place an order with one of us that has committed to donating our 20% commission to the cause.  Remember there’s FREE shipping, which ends on April 10th at midnight MDT.  So make sure you get your order in before then.
Instead of all of us creating our own link to donate we just used our friend Lee’s link.  She’s part of the hop as well.  So click below to order, and when you see another blond lady’s picture named Lee don’t worry, that is the right place to donate 🙂

Autism Fact #12 Many children with Autism have a reduced sensitivity to pain but may be extra sensitive to sound, touch or other sensory stimulation – which may result in a reluctance to be hugged or cuddled.
Don’t want to donate?  Place an order and you will be donating with your order.  20% of your order will go to the Amador Autism Group.
