Still Among the Living

Why is it that I feel like such a FAILURE when I can't find time to post something new on my blog!? It's pretty silly actually. I mean I work outside the home during the week, not 40 hours, but enough to crimp my personal life and it's a far cry from those glorious 4 years I stayed home...oh yeah, you had to remind me. It was my CHOICE to return to work. I guess I was a bit stir crazy at the time with a 2 year-old and a 5 year-old that wasn't starting Kindergarten.

Well between the day job, time with the kids, doing all the family budgeting/finances, grocery shopping, meal preparations...it's a miracle that I find time to exercise, let alone do anything CRAFTY! LOL Nevertheless, crafting brings me great happiness, and it's truly my therapy!

I had a workshop last week and in the rare moments of actual daylight yesterday, I finally took a few photos of the projects.


This is a 6X6 scrapbook page using both a fun stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration mini catalog and the pretty patterned paper. I have a 6X6 album of various photos...I guess you could say it's a brag book. This is going right in!!!

Stampin' Supplies:
PAPER - Delicate Dots Designer Series Paper, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, So Saffron
INK - Certainly Celery Craft, VersaMark
STAMPS - Polka Dot Punches
PUNCHES -
Full Heart Punch, Scallop Edge Punch
TOOLS - Stampin' Dimensionals, Gold EP, Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool


Since the page was for a workshop, I also did this 3X6 card alternative. I'm glad I did, because it was split 50/50 between those who did the 6X6 and those that did the card. I really enjoy doing 3X6 cards, it's a nice change!

Stampin' Supplies:
PAPER - Delicate Dots Designer Series Paper, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue
INK - Certainly Celery Craft, VersaMark
STAMPS - Polka Dot Punches, Upsy Daisy
PUNCHES -
Wide Oval Punch, Scallop Edge Punch
TOOLS - Stampin' Dimensionals, Gold EP, Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool


The final project was this card. I saw something similar once and really liked the bright color. Aside from white, it actually uses all In Color colors. This was also another excuse to play with more punches...I love punches!!! I should also mention that for every Say It With Scallops stamp set sold, Stampin' Up! donates $2 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
