So a few of you (read: a lot) have noticed that a few of my cards are in the September issue of Stampin’ Success (the magazine for Demonstrators). :) I was one of the lucky ones to “test drive” the new Demonstrator Business Web Site. Let me tell you, it’s awesome! Ya’ll are going to love it!

Yesterday, I got my goodie box from Northridge Media (I have things in both Cards Magazine and Scrapbook Trends). Lots of fun things to create with, including some AWESOME paper from Creative Imaginations. Check it: cherries, skulls and cross bones, edgy stickers. So cool! I’m pretty sure all of it was made with a teenager in mind, but I love it anyway!

Here’s a card I made with the cherry patterned paper.


You Rock – Patterned paper: Creative Imaginations; stamps (Well-Worn Alphabet, Rough Edges Alphabet, Straight Up Alphabet and Numbers, Three For You), ink, embossing powder, eyelets, ribbon, and card stock: Stampin’ Up!.

I also had a workshop this afternoon. The hostess is an avid photographer and requested card with photos. I wasn’t sure what to do because I haven’t put pictures on cards before, so I asked around and someone suggested I try photos on this card. Renae, you’re a genius!

Here’s how the photo card turned out. I used photos from a shoot I did for my good friend Melissa (see some shots here). This is her little guy who is so HUGE now compared to when these photos were taken.
