Designing D's Secret Sister Gifts

Tuesday, August 11, 2009

It's been some time since these have been sent out but thought I'd share the rest of my SS items. We made 6 items: 1) a friendship items w/flowers (the flower watercan shown here), 2) a box we hadn't made before (shown here), 3) a birthday card (shown here), 4) an item used with something around the house (I used these drawer pulls I picked up at a old country store and never used), 5) a scrapling and 6) an ATC, I think my all time favorite technique is watercoloring and Hello, I'm from the Beehive State!. My SS liked brown, green and pink so I thought the Bella Rose paper fit so well. The last three items are below, hoped she like them!:

The Old with the New

Saturday, August 8, 2009

Well, I was able to spend some time at the Stampin' Up Convention with my Stampin' Addict sisters (great ladies, hi!) and a little more motivated to start stamping again. I'm hoping to have more posts and pictures to show. Some will be from what I made a few months back (has it been that long?!) and then I'll post some of my convention swaps, so here's the first:
This is a frame I made for my friends, Clint and Mel. They just had their 2nd baby and after a few complications, were finally able to take her home. I used some old DSP and sets since she really likes green with the new in-colors and ribbon. I thought it turned out pretty cute!
