I’m doing pretty well at keeping up this January for the LOAD challenge on the Facebook Scrapbook LOAD Challenge group. I’m up to #15 & #16. For this one, I tried to only use current Stampin’ Up! products but I may have gone overboard on the number of items I used. 🙂
I just thought I would pop in and show you what we made yesterday at my new catalog celebration workshop.
This card is a CASE of this card. I just wish I had the black diagonal stripe from the Neutrals paper for the edge strip but this polka dot from Schoolhouse is cute too. Just like on the linked page, I used the negative from the tree builder punch as a stencil to sponge on the largest clouds.
This card took me four tries to find a version I liked. The idea was inspired by my upline’s upline (the woman who recruited the woman who recruited me). I used the large die from the Rose Garden thinlets as a stencil to sponge the colors into the flower. My first two variations didn’t have the black outline and one was a different color combination. The third used the large die on the card also. None of those was quite right. I like how this one came out.
January really does seem to be the best time for me to scrapbook. It’s way to cold outside to do anything else and things have calmed down now that the holidays are over. If only our basement office could stay a little warmer. 🙂
I’m playing with Scrap Much?
I’ve just finished up with 2007! Now to finish out 2008.
I belong to a Facebook group that helps challenge me to get some of my many pictures into scrapbooks. As part of that, each January we are challenged to create a LayOut A Day (LOAD). Here are my first two (each side counts as one) using some retired Stampin’ Up! paper that just screams to be used for scrapbooking.
I started with the 1-1-2016 sketch over at Let’s Scrap. Have I mentioned how much I LOVE sketches as a starting point!
In order to reduce the risk of back-orders for the Weekly Deals and better manage orders and shipping times, Stampin’ Up! will be limiting the number of items available until further notice; Stampin’ Up! wants to make sure that you get your Weekly Deals in a timely manner!
Today is my daughter’s 10th birthday and I still haven’t made her card. You would think, being a card-maker, that I would be prepared. Hopefully I will get it done today and maybe I’ll even post it. In the meantime, take a look at this week’s deals. For the time being, the special price on the weekly deals is for a limited supply in order to prevent back orders and get the product to you faster.
