Definition: Aggregate is a collection of items that are gathered together to form a total quantity.

The fleeting moments of knowledge in which we discover our existence are facts that can be committed to memory. We can enlarge this aggregate memory and refashion it as we go through a lifetime. By saving these memories on paper and reconstructing the images of our lives. We see the art of our lives unfolding before us.

Face the brilliance of your most wonderful creations and dwell on your dreams.
I believe in teaching, the sharing of ideas and playfulness of creating.

Stampotique Designers Challenge SDC57:

Birthday Box Pop Out

I love playing along with Stampotique Designers Challenges.
They are so creative and off the top.
Not so much fluff and stuff.

This challenge is Outside the Box....
I created a Birthday Box Pop Out using Ranger Distress Stains and Manila Tags.
I see that I need to order some more stamps from them.... 
I keep using the same stamps-!

Tip:  How you get the splat look is get the stain top nice and juicy on your craft mat, then spat it onto you card. (It is a fun way to release any sort of frustration kind of process.) Then use Distress Ink and a blending tool to do the edges.
