5/14/13 Fabulous Floretes Birthday and Mothers Day

Good Morning Friends!!

I know that I have been MIA on my blog, but I have been WAY busy preparing for a 20-different card class that I have coming up on Sunday here in Dracut!  If you live local and would like to join us, you can register for the event here.  Today is the last day to register!

Here is a GORGEOUS card from my stamp camp class last week.  I sure am going to miss this Fabulous Florets Stamp set Wood, Clear.  I'm so bummed that this one is going.  It is one of my go to floral sets!  
 The class participants had the option to make a Mother's Day card, or a birthday card.  We fussy cut the flower and the stem and layered it on top of the Print Poetry Designer Paper Stack.  I love the smaller format of this DSP.  I was able to get 12 cards from one stack using these measurements.  The dsp pieces each measure 4 x 1 1/2".  That is layered on Very Vanilla which was cut to 4 1/4" x 3 1/4".  This designer paper is also retiring..  I just love that the designers made one side blue hues, and the other pink. 
When my customers are in the studio, I explain that I typically start a card with my designer paper, then I purchase a few colors to match.  Then, I end up using every shred of designer paper before moving on to my next set of products.  I just love the comfort in knowing I used every piece!

That's it for today, but I will be back and sharing!  Yesterday, my venue for Sunday had to be moved, and I was able to secure Harmony Hall in Dracut!  This is a GORGEOUS space with big white walls, and floor to ceiling windows.  I just can't wait till Sunday! 

Much Love to you,

I just took a peek in the new catalog--I'm pretty sure this stamp set is not retiring. Hooray!

This is a stunning card! I love that DP pack esp the blues. I think I will have to try and replicate your card as it is so pretty. I like the idea of using all the paper up too though I will miss this one. This will make a wonderful birthday card to have on hand for some special people. Thanks for the idea. I love your blog and creations.
