Hi all! I thought I would share the pages that I made for my workshop the other night. The girls seemed to enjoy doing them and we had a lot of fun! Here they are with the recipes for each. Of course all materials used were SU! since it was a workshop, and I got to use a lot of the new designer papers which I absolutely love! Here is the recipe for the first one!
Papers: Dashing and Wintergreen Specialty Paper , Textured Wild Wasabi, Whisper White Cardstock
Ribbons: Wild Wasabi In Color Ribbon
Inks: Wild Wasabi In Color Ink
Stamp Sets: Punch Pals Accessories: Stampin Dimensionals, Mellow Moss Brads, Ticket Corner punch, Scallop Circle Punch

This next one was really fun to do because it really reminds me of Christmas and I absolutely love snowmen! Here is the recipe for this one!

Paper: Soft Sky, Whisper White Cardstock, Winter Green Specialty Paper
Ribbons: Soft Sky Doublestitched Ribbon
Inks: Soft Sky, Purely Pomegranate, Bashful Blue
Stamp Sets: Flaky Friends, Best Friends Alphabet Upper

And, last but certainly not least is my favorite page because it uses the bold brights which I absolutely adore (sorry Kimberly!) I just think they are very cheerful and for me they remind me of happiness! This page to me is Christmas, the bright, cheery colors make me think of opening presents and wrapping paper everywhere! This was also the favorite of the group so I might be on to something here *wink* Here is the recipe for this one!

Ribbons: Wild Wasabi Doublestitched Ribbon

Hi all, I did not desert my blog BUT I have been crazy busy getting ready for a scrapbook workshop I am having tonight - what fun! So, I have been working on my designs for that and have not had much time at all to do any other stamping! So, I promise that I will post the layouts I am using once the workshop is over (not fair to the gals if I post earlier) and see what you think!

Happy Monday to everybody! I have not had much time to post as I have been working on my swaps for Convention - I don't get to go but I have wonderful friends who will do some swapping for me! Aren't I lucky - I sure feel like I am!!!! Smooches to Kim Barbour and Kimberly Van Diepen for being such great gals - I luv ya girls!!!
My daughter has always loved to do crafts with me - whatever I was doing, she wanted to do too. So, when I decided I wanted to start stamping, so did she! I got her her own stamps sets, some ink pads, markers, pencils, and off she went! Last night she sat at the table and decided that she wanted to make some cards for her brother Zach at the Naval Academy. Kayla writes to him faithfully everyday and wanted him to have something she made. Here are the cards she came up with - I think they are darling and when I told her I was going to put them on my blog, she was thrilled! She asked me if anyone would comment on them and I told her of course they would because they are beautiful! So, if you have a chance, leave Kayla a comment and tell her what you think - she would absolutely love it!
