Finally things have slowed down...and I have found time to use my scrapping stuff! Found a few fun sheets of coordinating DP and hauled out some old stamps, bought a new one, and the ideas began flowing. Here is what I have to show for the last 24 hours...not much...but I am glad to be back at it! The stamps in the top one are from a Unity Stamp Co Kit of the Month, I think it was February of 2010, the middle one is from My Favorite Things, and the bottom card was made with a new Itty Bitty set, also from Unity, sold at Archiver's. Coloring was all done with Copics...lots of sewing, layering, and nestabilities, and my windowsill is lined with some cheery cards to inspire me to get moving on some more projects!

So, I printed it out and trimmed it down to size, then I added a decorative strip of DP. At first, I was going to make them all the same color, but then decided that I kind of like the idea of a bunch of fun papers, and this way I *might* remember what color a set is, so I can find it faster.
Next I scored the spine edge, and voila!
A perfect label...clean and simple, and best of all easy! With about 50 sets to go, I shouldn't be here typing away, but I wanted to share my idea. If you have MS Publisher, just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I would be glad to share the file and trimming instructions with you!

Finally, I am creating again! I found inspiration in this weeks Sketch & CAS Challenges on Splitcoast and came up with this simple summer card! The stamps are Papertrey Green Thumb, and the paper is SU Celery and Wasabi. I added a few dew drops for the peas and it really made it come alive! This was my first time trying a different brand of embossing folders, both the dot backgrounds were done with Quickutz folders. They seem to leave a shallower but sharper impression than the Cuttlebug brand, but I love what they have come up with and will definitely be buying more! Anyway, this would be a great card as a thank-you for some garden veggies (I do have someone in mind!!), or even a baby card!
