Obviously having my little pity party yesterday helped me regain my focus! 🙂 I woke up this morning determined to tackle this stamp room with gusto and not finish until I felt like I could truly function without shedding a tear. I guess being an organization freak doesn't help. What a GREAT day and what progress was made. Ladies, your encouragement has been so amazing and I just want to thank you for being so SO kind.
Here is a picture of the progress but keep in mind there is still lots to do. At least I can find stamps, ink and paper!
You can't really tell from the lighting in this room but the paint on the walls is Crushed Curry and I love it. It was already painted this way and I really liked it. Russ was pretty busy last night and today putting all the hardware up on my walls and even better… my TV! I thought about using the drill myself but knew it would not be a pretty situation. Glad he has the muscles and I know things will not fall off the wall. Whoo Hoo!
The other part of my room where I will hold classes/workshops is still a beautiful mess. Hopefully that will be done this weekend.
Tonight I made a card for YOU! It feels sooooooo good to stamp and use my new catalog products. Truly this is the best catalog yet for me. There are so many fun things I want to use. This card uses tons of new products. Let me show you!
I started this card using Crumb Cake cardstock. You know it's my favorite. I rolled the Crumb Cake cardstock through the Big Shot and embossed it using the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder (119277). The bottom of the card uses a new DSP called Play Date (117168) This DSP is great for scrapbooking kids photos. Love that paper. It's actually pretty bright DSP. Very fun. I corner rounded the ends of the cardstock and then I found my SEWING machine. You probably heard me scream. I was so excited. I did a straight stitch along the lace and DSP. That lace ribbon is the bomb. It's called Victoria 118481. It's so delicate. Above the lace I used a strip of Chocolate Chip cardstock and punched it using the new Border punch called Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border (119275). The "for" sentiment came from Fabulous Phrases (120501) and then used the "U" from the stamp set called Broadsheet Alphabet (120585). I love this Alphabet. The small tag is from the stamp set called Tiny Tags (118592). I added a button from the Neutrals collection and lastly a Vintage Trinket!
Again, thank you so much for your words of encouragement.
Lastly, don't forget to leave your burning question in the comments section. Business or Personal! I will compile them all and answer all the questions on Monday. I'll try to take you on a tour of my stamp room too.
Hope your weekend is wonderful.
