MOJO Monday 344 ~ Sweet Friend

Happy Wednesday!

This week's sketch over at MOJO Monday really spoke to me. Although many of you know that I just adore anything with flowers, you may not know that I also love geometrical shapes! Perhaps that explains why I enjoy cutting paper so much! So here I was able to combine the two elements in this week's sketch challenge. And, I also have all four packages of the collections of designer papers, so I will be utilizing them more in my projects.

Hope that you like what I came up with. The recipe is as follows:

Stamps: You are Loved (reired)
Ink: Early Espresso
Paper: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
Tools: Scallop Label Punch, Corner Rounder Punch
Embellishments: Dark Brown Satin Ribbon (non-SU), Hat Pins (retired SU), dimensionals

Enjoy your week and have fun Stamping and Crafting!

May Creative Crew Gallery Challenge

Since the beginning of this year, I have been participating in the Creative Chew Challenges over on Splitcoaststampers.

For the month of May, for this project, I used one of my favorite designer papers, Watercolor Wonder, which is covered in roses and some of my other favorite items. It is so much fun to make one of these...I am thinking of making more as little gifts. The funny part about making this is collecting the toilet tissue tubes around the house!
 
This is Julie Griffith's idea of a toilet tissue tube book.
 
You can view the Creative Crew galleries by clicking on: Creative Crew Galleries . There you are sure to find oodles of inspiration for your own projects!

Happy Stamping!

A few of us drove down early to have lunch together and we just could not wait.

The Stampin' Up! home office team showered us with awesome presentations of new products that are in this most lovely book of joy.

And wouldn't you know it, they had Prize Patrol, and each and every one of us went home with a Brand New stamp set and the new Stampin' Success newsletter.

For as long as I have been a demonstrater with this wonderful company, they never cease to amaze me at any event that I attend which also includes all of the fantastic fellow demonstrators whom host events!

If anyone has any questions, I would be more than happy to assist you...just send me an email at:

* Shabby Topiary *





The pure joy of finishing a project! About a month ago, a group of paper crafting friends, including me, got together and created this beautiful topiary! It has been on my to-be-completed list since and finally this morning it is fini!

The flowers were created by using SVG files, please do not ask me how, as one of the ladies, Debbie Young, a very talented paper artiste, in our group did all of the behind the scenes preparation and cutting.

Just in case any of you are wondering, I am also planning on creating one in Stampin' Up! style with our awesome Spiral Flower die! Perhaps one for moi and one for a special friend...could that be you?

Ha! Ha! You will just have to wait and see ;-)

Happy Stamping!
