Happy Wednesday! OMGosh! I never meant to be absent for so long on my blog. Life just got really busy and I haven’t had the opportunity to post! I was away this weekend on our annual Girls’Shopping Trip to Albany! I had a ton of fun, little to no sleep and scored a lot of bargains! I cannot believe how much more we pay for things here in Canada. I blew my budget the first day over at NY&C. We basically took over the changing rooms and had a blast. I bought a few Christmas presents and a few goodies over at Michaels. You will be seeing some projects here soon! Anyway, this weekend has put we about 2 weeks behind in everything else! LOL!
This week, there is a new spotlight and a new challenge over at the Stamp & Create Blog.
Our Product Spotlight is: Dies
Our new monthly challenge is to create a Center Step Card. To enter the challenge or for more details, please click ~here~
I have been wanting to get this sweet image inked up from the moment I first saw it and I knew right away it would work well on this style of card fold. The patterned paper is from SU! and an old piece of MME paper from a few years ago. It ended up being more or less covered up :) I cut out the circles with my Spellbinders and then I embossed the white circle with my Swiss Dots embossing folder and my cuttlebug. I used some bakers’ twine to “string” the popcorn. Looks so cute!
The smaller sentiment is by Whimsy. I masked off the center part of the sentiment and then stamped another one from the same set into the center. I thought it was cook that the font matched the larger sentiment stamp! Love when that kind of thing happens. The leaves were made with a Whiff of Joy metal die.
Here are some product links for you:
