I was so excited that I started making some new stuff, and really pushing myself to use new types of things on my cards and to make "non-cards."
I also got a lesson in photography; how to take better pictures and how to edit my pictures to make them look better! I think that's the one big thing that I need to do to improve my blog. Let me know what you think about the pictures in this post.
I converted a See n Say into a door prize spinner! It's especially fun if you leave the sound on..."pick the animal that goes moo" makes spinning a farm adventure! In the box with the See n Say was a package of 2" X 2 3/4" cardboard tiles. They were just screaming out to become a matching game! I stamped and colored on one side and then put the polka dot DSP in Cucumber Crush on the back. I think that if I were making them for a kid I would laminated the paper before attaching it. But seeing as my kid is 26, I think I'm ok!
Stamped Matching Game
I had some bad news at work (I didn't get a promotion that I applied for) and my employees will be sad with me when the find out tomorrow (well, happy/sad because I'm not leaving them) so I made them all little covered legal pads. I want them to know how much I appreciate them and that I'm ok that I'm staying with them.

I love the Affectionately Yours DSP, don't you ?
I bought some tiny wooden spoons to put in the containers with my embossing powder...I used six and have like a 20 left. I looked over at them on my craft table and thought, I need to stamp on those! This turned out cuter than I thought it would. So cute that we might make these at card club next week!
Because I stamped on a tiny wooden spoon!
I'm head over heels for this.
(The card is balanced in the fig tree! Very artistic, huh?)
I love the You're Sublime stamp set. Here are a couple of cards made with them and the new In-Colors. I used my blender pens with them to keep the colors soft.
|The You're Sublime Set is so fun!|
Don't forget to leave me some feedback on my photography. I'm hoping it looks much better!
