Welcome to my first ever blog and first ever blog post! It's a new year so I thought I'd give this a shot. I find so much inspiration from visiting other people's blogs that I think it's about time I contribute to the idea pool. A lot of the things I post will probably be CASE'd (Copy And Share Everything) and tweaked to my own style.

What's my style? Hmm...depends on the day, time, mood..you get it. My style changes like the tide. Depends on what's inspiring me at the moment. I'll be sure to give credit where credit is due when I post projects. Feel free to leave comments or suggestions on things you'd like to see.

As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I'll only be using Stampin' Up! products for all of my creations. This helps me to utilize products that I will be able to provide to my customers and gain an expertise in those products.

Enough of the boring stuff, you're probably wanting to SEE something I've created!

 I promise I'll try to work on my photography skills :) This cute card was for my sister-in-law for her birthday. A little tearing, a little faux stitching and some cute accents. I created the flower using the 2 3/8 scallop circle punch. I roughed up the paper by bending, folding, scrunching until the two layers of cardstock separated enough that I could peel them apart. Then I just layered them and an Antique Brad for the flower center. Add some pretty Crochet Trim and a little greeting and there she is!

Hope you've enjoyed my first ever blog post! Be sure to leave me a comment with what you think!

  1. As you get more comfortable with blogging, you should post the projects of tech night, so we can remember how to do them. Or not.
