catching up


I can't believe I haven't posted any new work in almost a week. I spent yesterday busy stamping. I got some good things done, but now today behind on the laundry.

Andrea Walford has a great blog and posted this idea of doing a box of cards with tart and tangy set and summer picnic paper out of Spring mini catalog. I played around with it to get a bunch made for upcoming craft fair. Of course I did not read directions right and was using 6 .5 x 11 piece instead of 6.5 x 11.5. So I wasted 5 pieces of cardstock.

I got the tutorial from Emily, she did it using berry bliss paper. You can check it out here if you want to play along.http://stampingexpressions.blogspot.com/

I plan on doing this as one of the projects for a May class for mother's day and teacher gifts.
Here is my sample using Berry bliss and close up shot of the box to hold the cards.

As Han said, you've been busy! Very nice job; like those colors together a lot too!

I saw your comment on my card about shopping with Gwen; actually she'd not seen those flowers before, but we often do buy the same stuff, though we don't get to shop together, sadly! We do get to craft together though, which is WONDERFUL! She's a sweetie!
