Sneak Peek!!

Don't you just love sneak peeks?? This set if from the upcoming Summer Mini Catalog! It's called Elements of Style. We received this set FREE at Leadership in January! This set is perfect for the Vintage look that is so hot right now!!



The flowers are stamped in Black Stazon and watercolored with Watercolor Wonder Crayons. There is a little bit of Dazzling Diamonds on the flowers and I used the Lovely Lilac marker and Color Spritzer tool to add some dimension to the background.

Watch for a 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog Sneak Peek in the next few days!!

Spring Into Stamping

We had a great time in Champaign on Saturday! It was a long drive home in the rain and we lost an hour due to the Daylight Savings time so needless to say, I didn't do too much of anything yesterday! But I do want to share some photos of te day with you!


Back Row: Nancy & Kim
Front Row: Julie, Susan and Angie



There were several demonstrators who were showing some great ideas and techniques! I just love this card! There is water and Dazzling Diamonds in the Sweet Treat cup! It's sealed with a window sheet so the water doesn't leak!



There were several display boards as well. This card caught my eye! We love our "boys in brown"!!



I'll share some more in the next few days!

Shoe Box Swap

I had scheduled this to post Friday while I was on my way to Champaign. IL for our annual Spring Into Stamping event hosted by the awesome Kim Peck! The event was on Saturday. We stayed with my daughter and she hosted a shoe box swap in the evening (A shoebox swap is where we each design a project and put all of the materials for everyone to make one in a box. Then we pass the boxes around so everyone can make your card. I thought I would share my card!

I must have missed a step in the process of setting this up to post at a point in time after I prepared it and when checking my blog found that it hadn't posted! Isn't technology wonderful?!?!?!?


Supplies used: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, Certainly Celery card stock; Tea Party Designer Series Paper; Basic Black Classic Ink; Eyelet Border Punch; Beautiful Wings Embosslit; Well Scripted stamp set
