Fall Memories

My scrapbooking style is very simple, especially now as I hurry to catch up before the kids get back from their summer job/classes next weekend.  Here is a page from a visit to Port Farms in 2007 using just a bit of Autumn Traditions DSP and the My Way punch.  The leaf is a Big Shot […]

Stampin’ Up! Contest

These were my entries for the July Stampin’ Up! contest for demonstrators.  The theme was Clean and Simple.  I used the new Falling Leaves stamp set and matching wheels.  These cards also feature the new Autumn Traditions Designer Series Paper.  Contests and free stamp sets are another perk for being a demonstrator.  The $85 starter […]

More Hodgepodge Hardware

The vanilla brads add a subtle dimension to this simple card made with the new set Falling Leaves.   I used Very  Vanilla and Soft Suede Cardstock.  The More Mustard leaf was stamped twice, and the second one layered on top of the first with the leaves curled up for more dimension.

New Product Showcase – Bride Specialty Paper

Posted: Saturday, July 18th, 2009 @ 5:32 pm in Projects | No Comments »

This paper is gorgeous – the photos don’t do it credit!  The card with the hat pin (Pretties Kit) is close to the sample in the new catalog.  I just used the organza ribbon.  For the second card, I stamped in Chocolate Chip ink rather than using the Chit Chat Rub-ons.  I think the Rub-ons work […]
