Projects from the Open House

Good Monday Morning! I hope you had a great weekend, and got lots of rest - or, if you're like ME, got everything done you needed to!!!!! Whew, was I busy!

<------- This is the card that we made on Saturday morning at my New Idea Book & Catalog Kickoff. The base card stock is Groovy Guava, as is the ink on the medallion. The flowered designer series paper is from the BALI BREEZE collection. The strip of card stock is Tempting Turquoise, embossed with the Crop-A-Dile. The medallion is stamped with the A BEAUTIFUL LIFE stamp set, as is the inside. Then, it's punched out with the scallop punch and stuck onto a post-it note, which was punched AGAIN with the scallop punch, rotated just enough so that the "valley" of each scallop on the punch would disect the "mountain" of the scallop on the white punch. :) Easier to show than to tell, but that's all there is to it! The medallion is on a Dimensional. We took a Cameo Coral Stampin' Write Marker and colored in JUST the "friend" part of the "friendship" stamp from WONDERFUL WORDS.

What do you think? :)

This is the second project. --------------------->
It's a mini photo album; inside are five clear envelopes, stuck together and adhered to the inside of the Basic Gray card stock. The front is stamped with a flower from the Level 3 hostess set, TIME WELL SPENT, in Purely Pomegranate. Purely Pomegranate and Whisper White card stock, both notched with the ticket corner punch, make the front plate for the larger saying from the stamp and some little flowers from it, too.
The "binding" is done with jumbo eyelets and Purely Pomegranate double-stitched ribbon.
This project got lots of rave reviews! :) It makes easy gifts, table favors, or even easy inserts into your 12x12 scrapbook to hold more photos.
So, what do you think of this one???? I'd love to hear from you! :) What are YOU making? I hope you're taking the time to STAMP something!!!!!!!! :)
