Still on an inspirational kick.... I continued on to make this card which I love. I am now a huge Peach Parfait fan. I stamped and cut out 2 flowers and layered them together and added a scalloped circle punch on the bottom. I curled the petals on the top flower and added a build a brad as well. I love using the partial medallion stamp as well. All in all I have had a pretty creative and productive week.
Will share a few Holiday mini sneak peeks later today.!!!

I made this card last week using the Stamping 411 colour scheme which was Blushing Bride, Peach Parfait and Elegant Eggplant. Colours that I wouldn't put together normally...but I really love the combo.
This card was inspired by a card from Melissa Huie. We have a wonderful Demonstrator web site and she had a beautiful card there. I changed alot and left out some of her details. but she really inspired me to use stamps in different ways.
If you notice the brads in the center of the flowers, they are the new glimmer brads from the holiday mini. This is the In Colour selections. They are so pretty!
The brad in the large center is our build a brad I will do a short video on how this is used and will post it later in the week. It is another great product I have been hoarding. But it is so fun to use. Look for more more projects coming up using this cool (not so new product)
Happy Stamping.

Today I am bringing you another journal. I love this these papers and stamps. They are fabulous and definately a must have.
I made this journal for myself. I love how it turned out . I am also using it everyday. Gasp.... I am the worst one for keeping a journal.
These are super easy to do and a wonderful gift to recieve. The dollar store was closed or I would be working on more right now. Have a happy Sunday. I will have more to show you but I am working on submission work right now so it is all under wraps for now.

I am so in love with the new set's and paper from Stampin'Up! the paper is called Love Letter (117162) and it is so beautiful. In fact I need to order more. :) The colours are Riding Hood red, Basic Black and Very Vanilla. The sets I used are Artistic Etchings (120573) and Notably Ornate (120561). I had the chance to pre order the Artistic Etchings but I didn't really like it. Then I saw what everybody was doing with it and I had to have it!!!!! Now I can't stop using it. These two sets work together so beautifully and co ordinate perfectly with the paper.
I made this book, for my friend Heather, who was recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Being a survivor myself, I wanted to make her something pretty to write down her thoughts and feelings and anything else she wanted to record. I hope she loves it as much as I did making it. I love to alter notebooks. I need to get to the dollar store to get more.

For the first time ever......I have finished my swaps with days to spare. I will post my swaps on the blog on Sept 1st.
I have been busy trying to get things into order for Sept. The months just get busier and tend to go faster than I would like. My DH starts work today and that means a little more creative time for me.

I have a workshop to get ready for on Thursday the 26th. If you want to place an order please let me know.

I also have extra catalogues, if you haven't seen it you really should. :)

I will be posting a project in a little while. I am also excited because my DH is talking of and planning out my new craft room. With a place for all my stuff. I am looking forward to be able to find everything. (ok I know that probably won't happen, but I can dream!)

I am working on swaps right now. I always over extend myself. I really must work on that. lol
I must say I got caught up in the Holiday mini frenzy. So many wonderful set's and new product.
I am a vintage style crazy and love the whole vintage scene. So this is right up my alley. I have been having so much fun......although it would be more fun if I could find my artichoke ink. Oh well, even when my crafting desk isn't chaos I still can't find anything.
I will be posting some new stuff once I get the darn swaps out of the way..... see you soon!

It was a fun time at Young Women's camp last week. Although trying to keep up with 61 12-18 year olds is a challenge. This is my favorite picture I took at camp. It was right after our Testimony meeting. To me it what sums up camp, friendship, growth and sweetness.
I will be doing more scrapping from camp, but I just wanted to capture this image first. I love Stampin'Up's my digital studio. It's quick easy and no paper scraps to clean up. Now to get more done so I can get them printed. Have a Stamp happy Monday!!!!

I am off to girls camp next week. It will be fun but tiring, 61 teenage girls can do that to you. The day I return home is the day my Holiday mini order is due. I am so excited the new products are such fun. At camp we have pixie pals (secret sisters) this is one gift I made for my Pixie pal. It is a marble tile, I stamped on it using craft ink and then heat set it. I sprayed it with clear sealer. I like how it turned out. Looking forward to playing with tiles when I get home.

It has been a rainy grey few days here. But It hasn't been so bad as I have had a friend visiting me. It's nice when old friends come to visit. Friends are nice to have around especially those friends who will drop everything to give you a hand.
I really like this colour combo I got at stamping 411 the other week. It is crumb cake, baja breeze and not quite navy.

I really love this new stamp set as well it was in my top 10 list of must haves.
I soon as I saw this set I thought of my friend Janetta so I made her this card.

Even on a grey and rainy day you can send some sunshine in the mail.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
