Plans for the Fall

WOW - it seems like a really LONG time (and it really has been) since I've had any sort of class or workshop. So I'm making up for it soon. I'll be doing an Open House on the Sept. 19 and a Stamp Camp on Oct. 3rd. I'm also planning a Christmas card class and hopefully a Christmas scrapbook class for Nov & Dec. I don't have anything firm on those yet. I'll try to post some pictures as soon as I get some of these prototypes done. Keep watching.

Swap Cards

Well, I finally got a chance to do some stamping. These are cards that I did for a new catalog swap on SCS. I hope you like them. As I look at these side by side, I realize that I'm "Layout Challenged" and I need to branch out in my layout designs. Even though they are all different, I think that there are two basic layouts here. I didn't set out for it to be that way, but......... (guess I need to spend more time looking through the SCS galleries? :o) )

When I made this one, I was thinking of my three beautiful Granddaughters - Princess Haylee, Princess Isabelle, and (coming soon) Princess Jadyn. This new stamp set is "Princess Time"

This one made me realize that Fall is just around the corner. I normally do "bright" colors so this was different for me to work with. It shows three of the new In-Colors: Dusty Druango, Crushed Curry and Soft Suede. This new stamp set used here is "Razzle Dazzle". This one also uses the new "Modern Label" punch and the new Sizzix magnetic mover and shaper.

This one is just a simple, elegant anytime card. This has the new in-color Bermuda Bay cardstock and polka dot ribbon. This new stamp set is "Of the Earth" which is a Hostess set.

This one is to honor those that are serving our country and to remind them they are in our prayers. The new stamp sets used are "Courage" and "Service and Sacrifice". The center image piece was done using the Sizzix Top Note die - cut once, turned 90 degrees and cut again. I really like the final cut.

I hope you like these cards.

Have a wonderful day!!!
