I'm so creative this weekend!
It must be the fall weather that has put me in the mood for creating. I've made two cards for my workshop next weekend and I'm pretty pleased with the outcome. One card is a based on a card by Barb Mann. She used the paint chip samplers from a home improvement store and I really wanted to try this. Her cards were so beautiful! She used Upsy Daisy on her cards. I just knew I had that stamp set but for the life of me I couldn't find it so I improvised and used Lovely as a Tree. I wasn't very sure if I would like the white trees but I think it turned out really well.
The other card was all mine. My customer wanted a Christmas card so at some point, this card just came to me. I wanted to showcase the Big Shot at her workshop and I went from there.
I also finished a set of cards made from a Simply Scrappin' kit. My sister always uses these for her cards but she likes it when I make the cards first, then she copies them--sisters! LOL
A friend asked me to make about 50 gift card holders for a craft show she's holding. I used a tutorial from Dawn Griffith to make this cute holder and it was so easy! Here's the link to her tutorial if you want to know how to do it. http://dawnsstampingthoughts.typepad.com/dawns_stampin_studio/2009/09/christmas-gift-card-video-.html
Now I'm working on two 6x6 scrapbooks for a colleague whose sons were both married last year. Let's see how far I get on those this afternoon.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stampin'!
