Thank You to everyone who came to our March Craft Day. I thought it was a lot of fun. I look forward to this day each month. Hope you do, too. :-)
Here are a few samples I had of cards we made:
As a gift from me, everyone who came could take a Decor Element flower home with them. (And a tile if they wanted one:) Hope to see all of you back for craft day next month and hope those of you who couldn't make it will make it next time :-) Happy Stampin'!
Here's a simple card I made using a new stamp set and Stampin' wheel that will be coming out in the mini catalog next week. I do enough little kid projects and cards that I thought I needed this set, as I have nothing like it :-) Have a Wonderful Weekend! I'll see some of you at our craft day on Saturday!
One last version of the Petal Pizzazz card. I used Spinkles in the background with Versamark and I tried a new color combo--Baja Breeze, Tangerine Tango, and Apricot Appeal with Black and White. Have a Great Day!
I saw a similar card to this one in the April issue of Stampin' Success by Stephanie David and just had to case it. So here is my version of the card. A little more simple than hers, but my supplies are more limited. Of course, Mother's Day is in the near future (hint, hint to my kids and hubby :>) Have a Happy Stampin' Day!
I practiced distressing my paper and ribbon last week. I used my scissors and ink pad to help me do this. The flower was done with a blender pen. This card was really fun to make :) Recipe: Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, A Little Somethin' Paper: Sahara Sand, Baja Breeze, White Ink: Basic Black, Baja Breeze Accessories: White grosgrain ribbon, vintage brads, dimensionals
I don't know about where you live, but here it is beautiful spring weather. I love the springtime. Hope you all have a chance to enjoy the beauty of the this earth. Happy Spring! Flower Basket recipe: Big Shot Baskets & Blooms Die, Petal Pizzazz Stamp set, Raspberry Tart DS Paper, Riding Hood Red ink, Summer Sun ink, Kiwi Kiss ink, Pink Pirouette ink.
Does your work space (play space :) ever look like this? Too many projects out, old and new, too many ideas going on at once. I was having so much fun with all my new stuff I got for my birthday that I got a little carried away. I'm going to get this mess organized, then I'll have some space to finish some of these projects. I'll post some of them when I complete them. :-)
Sticking with the same color scheme, here is the next scrapbook page. I used the Wild About You stamp set. The designer paper and ribbon I used are from the Sale-a-bration promotion(you can get these for free, check out the Sale-a-bration promotion!). I used a challenge sketch for the layout. The Late Nite Stampers group is an awesome group to be a part of to get great ideas. There are so many wonderfully creative people. If you would like to join this group, here is the link: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/latenightstampersconvention2008/
I love the new Fifth Avenue Floral set. It may be hard to see these gorgeous flowers on this page. I tried them out this week and turned it into a scrapbook page. I'll see what else I can come up with using this set. Happy Stampin'!
