Last week's SCS Ways to Use it Challenge was to use up scraps. I knew that was one challenge I'd have to play...I ALWAYS intend on going back and using my scraps, but I have to admit, I'm not always good about doing it. This was just the nudge I needed, plus I had some great stuff in the scrap pile! I also check out the challenge at the Great Swaps Girls, to use 3 kinds of embelishments. How fun is that? So I combined the two challenges and this card is the result. I found these great images in the scrap pile from the All in the Family (girl) and All Holidays (sentiment) stamp sets. In fact, the only thing that didn't come out of the scrap pile was the square scallop piece. For the GSG challenge, my 4 types of embelishments are ~ a flower from the Pretties Kit (sitting in the scrap pile, already tinted pink, what a find!), a close to cocoa button, silver brads and some pink taffeta ribbon. Does Dazzling Diamonds counts as an embelishment? If so, then I used 5 types! Finished size of this card is 4 1/4" square, my favorite : ) !
This is a quick, simple little 3" enclosure card, made for my friend Tonya... Happy, Happy (a little belated) Birthday Tonya : ) ! The butterfly image is from the soon to be released (August 11th!!!) SU set, Dreams Du Jour! I'll have more to show you from that set soon. The sentiment is from the All Holidays set. That's a new set for me and I am sure enjoying it!! Great sentiments for all the holidays...thus the name!For those of you who love SU stamps and products this is an exciting week! Lots of great things happening. New Catalog coming out on Monday (August 11th)...if you don't have a local demonstrator and would like a catty, just let me know and I'll ship you one (minimal charge, just to cover my cost). Discounts beginning Monday on several of the brand spankin new set!! AND a fantastic opportunity for anyone who'd like to sign up as an SU Demo for only $99 bucks, and that includes great products that YOU get to pick!! If you're like me and you don't like to pay retail (I love, love, love a good bargain) then you might want to consider becoming a demo yourself. You do NOT ever have to hold workshops if you don't want to. You can just enjoy the discounts and extras that the demos enjoy, and just be your own best customer : ) !! I know it sounds too good to be true, but it's really simple and if you're already spending money on paper crafting supplies, chances are, you can save a bundle! You can go to my SU business website beginning Monday (the new specials will be posted then) to learn more about it, or email me ANYTIME you have a question, I'm more than happy to give you honest answers to your questions. I'm not a sales person, but I do love sharing great stuff when I find it...and this opportunity and that new catty are some GREAT stuff : ) !!! My email is email@example.com
