Happy Friday!! Last year I made my own Day Planner and I loved it, so I decided to make another one for 2009 (I also wanted to offer a Stampin Up workshop for one, so I was motivated to get to work on it!)...this is that I came up with, you like? I love this know when you make something and you just "love" it so you've got to sit and stare at it for a bit? Yup, did that! This was so much fun to make and fairly easy once I got all the inside calendar, etc. pages done.

BCW60 - A Birthday card...

This week's bloggers challenge was a Birthday card. It just so happens that one of my favorite people is having a Birthday soon and she looooooves Black & White! SO she was my inspiration for this card. This little Chef Dude is soooo versatile! Gotta love him! Well I roughed up the edges on my white cs (my blade started it so I finished it!). I punched out the Happy Birthday with the Scallop Circle, but wanted it to "pop" some, so I punched a black Scallop circle and layered them off center.
Supplies (all supplies are Stampin Up!):
Stamps: Voila
Paper: Summer Picnic DP, Designer Paper Pack (Summer/Spring 2008 Level 1 Hostess), Basic Black and Real Red Card stock.
Ink: Jet Black Stazon

The Same but Different, BCW59

This weeks Bloggers' Challenge was "The Same but Different", use the same layout but change the stamps, paper, etc. I am soooo in love with these Joy Fold cards, that I just had to do some more. Can I take a second here to just say that if you are not familiar with the Splitcoast Stampers website, I highly recommend that you visit them about a wealth of knowledge and ideas!!!! (I thought I was the last one on the planet to learn about them, but apparently not). Anyway...these cards were so much fun to make! I made a super cute snowman one a few posts back that I am sure will be one of our Christmas cards this year. My first card uses Dreams du Jour a brand new set by Stampin Up! (if you do not have a new Catalog yet, you'd better run and get is awesome!!!!). I also used the new SU In Colors, I love these new In Colors!!!! I used Crystal Effects on the flowers for some dimension. I really wanted to put some pearls (from the Pretties Kit) on here but the white on white didn't work! I also didn't have a circle punch the right size to put a circle of color under each one, but once I decided to "chalk" the edges it made the pearls look fine on there (whew). The butterfly seemed a little 'flat' so I stamped another one, cut it out and glued him on top. I also used blender pens and re inkers of the new In colors to color the image. Later this week, I plan to make some of my own In Color markers, with old SU pens!
Supplies (all supplies are Stampin Up!):
Stamps: Dreams du Jour
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze
Paper: Holiday Happenings DP, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White cardstocks
Accessories: Pearls from the Pretties Kit, Crystal Effects, Blender Pens, Sponge, Scallop Circle punch, circle punches, ticket corner punch, dimensionals
For my 2nd card I used the Bloomin' Beautiful (which I heard a rumor tht it made it into the new Catalog - as you can tell I have not yet received my catalog, but I've seen lots of pictures!). I'll be stalking the UPS guy and the mailman today!!!
Stamps: Bloomin Beautiful (SU)
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black
Paper: Chocolate Remix (by PTI), Brocade Blue cs (SU), Chocolate Chip cs (SU)

Bloggers Challenge #58 and TLC180

I know, this is horribly late, I am truely sorry!!!! Friday when I was planning on getting this done, I found out that blogger was having "issues" and who knew when they were gonna be resolved. So I decided now was a good time to clean up my craft room, well one thing led to another and well, let's just say that Hubby's area is "no more" (he's such a good hubby!!!!) and now I have the whole entire room 100% to myself!!! Woo Hoo!!!! So what started off as a small hour or two "straightening up" had turned into a 2 1/2 day move out half the furniture, re arrange the rest and move some more in, Spring Cleaning thing!!! I still have some prettying up to do, but boy do I have space (and it's even organized!!!!). So excuses out of the way, let's get down to business! I combined my Bloggers Challenge (that is 3 days late) with todays Technique Challenge on SCS. Bloggers Challenge was to use Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red, Old Olive and So Saffron (I love this color combo!!!!), the Technique Challenge was a Square Spring Card. I heard a "rumor" that the Tart & Tangy set and the Summer Picnic DP made it into the new Catty, so if that is true then consider this a "Happy Homecoming to Tart & Tangy". Happy Monday, hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!!! Thanks for stopping by! Once my room is done, I'll post some pics...
Supplies (all supplies are Stampin Up!):
Stamps: Tart & Tangy
Ink: So Saffron, Rose Red, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie
Paper: Summer Picnic Dp, Rose Red, So Saffron, Basic Black & Whisper White cs
