As Promised

Another Just Believe sample. This card I created for a shoebox swap that I participated in on the free night of Convention. I used Blush Blossom, Early Expresso, and Whisper White. Thanks to Sherrill and all the freebies she gave away at pre-convention, I had the correct punch for use that night. I accidently brought the wide oval, instead of the 1 3/4" circle (oops!)

More tomorrow.  Thanks for stopping by!

Another Just Believe Swap Share

Sorry I didn't post yesterday. This week has kind of been a whirlwind. Yesterday was my last day of working, though I'm still getting paid through Monday and then receiving 4 weeks of severance pay, so I have some personal things to take care of. Anyways, now on to the stamping. Here another one of my swaps from convention. I again used Just Believe. The colors are Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black and Whisper White. And yes, I used some shimmer mist.

Tomorrow is Sketch Frenzy Friday and I will be joining my friend tomorrow again with my own creation. Thanks!

I'm Back!

I'm back from convention and am exhausted! But it was well worth it. I have tons of new ideas and motivation to get my business going. So be on the look out for some new clubs that I will be introducing in the near future. But first, onto the long lost shares that I promised you last week. Here is one of the cards that I created for my general swaps. I used Concord Crush, Whisper White, and Crumb Cake. The stamp sets are Vintage Vogue and Very Vintage wheel.

I plan to continue to share more of the swaps that I swapped at convention everyday this week. So stayed tuned! And thanks for your patience

Sketch Frenzy Friday

Hi everyone from Salt Lake City. Sorry I've been MIA all week. I know I promised swap samples, but I've been so busy and exhausted that I haven't had the energy for much else. Today is Sketch Frenzy Friday and I'm sorry to report that I do not have a creation for you but I wanted to make sure you are still able to go to all the blogs. I'm writing this from my phone so I can't even post the sketch, but as usual, the next blog is Angela here.

I'm SOOOOO Sorry!

I'm so sorry to all my neglected blog readers. I broke a promise to you all. Saturday came and went and then Sunday came and went and I didn't have anything ready to share with you. Like I said earlier, I'm trying to hold out on showing you my convention swaps until next week, but I don't have much else to share right now, as that's all I've been working on the past week and will be working on this week.  But here is a card that I did create this weekend for a non-convention swap. I may tweek it a little to make it a convention swap though. Anyways, it used Aviary and Occassional Quotes. I also used the new patterened DSP. The perpective is a little wierd, sorry about that.

And finally, the blog candy winner from last weekend is - - Sharon L. Sharon please contact me with your mailing address to claim your prize!

Sketch Frenzy Friday!

Wow, where did the week go? I'm so sorry that I haven't updated my blog since Monday! I've been so busy trying to design and then mass produce my swaps for convention that I haven't really created any new cards. I will be scheduling my swaps to be posted while I'm at convention, so I don't spoil the surprise for those of you actually there. Anyways, I digress. It's Friday, so that means it Sketch Frenzy! First, here is the sketch.

And here is my card. This is not at all what I imaged when I first started, but I think I like the outcome. I used Cute by the Inch, Dot, Dot, Dot, and Apple Blossoms. The colors are Cherry Cobbler, Early Expresso, and Whisper White. The layer directly behind the small square isn't what you probably think it is. I'm guessing you're thinking is the new punch that Stampin' Up! released to go with this set. Well, no I haven't ordered that one yet (though now I'm kind of wishing that I did), so I improvised by using 1" circles and layering them behind the image.

I know I still owe you a blog candy winner to and I PROMISE that I will post that tomorrow with another new card. Thanks for your patience and for stopping by! And now on to the next blog.

Sketch Frenzy Friday

It's Friday and that means is Sketch Frenzy Friday! Here is today's sketch.

And here is my take. As promised, it actually isn't a CASE! The only stamping was the sentiment from Apple Blossoms. The flower is from the Birds and Blooms sizzlit and the DSP is Greenhouse Gala. The colors are Pumpkin Pie, Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz, and Chocolate Chip.

Thanks for stopping by! You can see another sample using this sketch by going to Angela's blog here.
