I apologize for not posting lately.....I have been busy with life outside of stamping as well as two stamp camps I am preparing for, a stamp club meeting and a Wee-Inker meeting!! I have been stampin' a little, just haven't had time to post.
Yesterday was my Stampin' Up! downline meeting of the Wee-Inkers. There were only four of us altogether, but we had a great time chatting and stamping. I can't show you ALL the projects we did, but I will show you my favorite:
This is a little altered notebook, covered with the new DP from the Holiday Mini, called Autumn Vine. LOVE THIS PAPER! As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to pair it with some buttons die-cut from the new Big Shot, a Felt Fusion Too flower and the wide Baja Breeze ribbon. Those little buttons on the DP are sooooo cute! I showed them how to remove the coil from the top, adhere the DP, punch holes using the original holes as a template, then replace the coil. Easy! No stamping, actually! I did dauber the edges of the buttons to give them some depth, and added a little "thread" with my white gel pen!
Here are the swaps we exchanged:
All the swaps were very cute! Such great ideas from a creative bunch of girls!
My last share is the little recruiting gift I gave to Alison, who recruited her friend Jenn! I added some quick rub-ons from the Holiday Mini to an Ikea frame and put some beautiful DP as a background. Now she can add a picture of her little one playing in the snow----if we ever get any! Ooops, maybe I shouldn't say that---we'll get inundated! I apologize for this photo---it looks like the frame is warped, but it's not. Anybody know how to NOT get this when they photograph their projects? Seems it happens to me a lot!
Thanks for visiting!
