I have so much to share, so where do I start? [deep breath] ...
First, before I forget - you now have the option of following these blog posts on my BUSINESS WEBSITE as well as on my original blog. Why is that a good thing? Well,if you (the reader) usually start out on my blog and then use the links to take you to my business site to see my EVENTS CALENDAR, PROMOTIONS, etc ... then nothing has changed; carry on with your routine.
But if you usually start out on my business site checking out calendar or promotions first, you've had to then switch over to my blog to read my new posts ... well, no longer my friends! Every word I post on my blog is now posted to my business site automatically, so you can stay on one site for all the info ... isn't modern technology wonderful? To find the blog on my business site, click on the blog link under the ABOUT ME tab at the top of the home page. Oh, and while you're there, check out the PROJECT IDEAS .. there are some kewl ideas there that don't appear on my original blog.
OK, I've wanted to share with you the projects we made at my friend Caroline's Stampin' Palooza event a couple of weekends ago in Toronto; check 'em out!
These are the three cards that we made - all designed for us, with paper cut to size and everything ... just like I do for you in my classes! It sure was fun being catered to for a day, let me tell you!
I love the idea of making a shaker card with cupcake sprinkles .. I always seem to have leftovers in my baking cupboard; now I know what to do with them!
Gotta love that glittery designer paper too ... have you got yours yet? The Occasions mini ends on April 30th and then this paper is GONE!
These papers all mix and match - making the projects go together super fast ... gotta love 'em for that!
The little box is a Sizzix Big Shot die called "Fancy Favour" - very versatile and I love the card stock & ribbon handle that Caroline added, too.
I haven't decided what I'll use my tin for yet, but I was glad to have the chance to personalize it with my initial on the front ... we made that with Serif Essentials alphabet dies, also on the Big Shot.
Now I've only shown you five of the six projects ... because I haven't finished the sixth one yet [hanging my head in shame]. It's a little scrapbook, you see, and I want to print off some special pictures and embellish the pages before I share it with you. I CAN tell you that the pages are made from Stampin' up!'s "On Board Scallop Circle Book" from the Occasions Mini - very sturdy chipboard pages will make for a very durable & fun album! I promise to share as soon as it's done.
