Project 81 of 365: Black Magic Get Well Wishes September 4, 2010

If you live in Wisconsin, isn’t this some crazy weather?  A few days ago it was so hot and humid that you didn’t want to leave your house, now its chilly and windy and you need a sweater.  Wow, it was summer one day and fall the next.

This card is another one made from all those Black Magic blocks I had made way back when.  And again, I’m sticking with some bold colors on this one.  I really like the way this one turned out with the different shades of blue pencil, set off by the Bermuda Bay paper.  The Layout is super quick and simple so keep the layout in mind for the next time you need a quick card. (The coloring isn’t so quick, but it is simple.)

If you need direction on how to do the Black Magic Technique just read the previous post (Project 80.)

Project 23 of 365: New Stampers Cards June 13, 2010

Yesterday was so much fun and a total “girls” day!!  First I went to an early movie with a good friend and her 2 daughters, then we went to Barnes & Noble (couldn’t we all just sit in there with a cup of coffee and browse books all day?!?), then a late lunch at Noodles & Company, and then we all came back to my house for an evening of crafts and movies!!  Too much fun.

So in our all girls day I got to introduce 3 NEW people to stamping….I’m pretty sure they will be back for more.  My lovely friend Tina has told me over and over again how she just isn’t into crafts and is not an artsy person at all.  I had already told her daughters that we would make some kind of project before they went home, I just hadn’t picked out a project yet.  So when Tina happened to flip through my NEW catalog (yep, the non-crafter has seen the new catalog and you have not…hahaha) and mentioned that she thought this one little “get well soon” card was cute and would be perfect for her father-in-law who just had surgery, it was settled, we would all be making that card!

I love it when Non-Crafters think they won’t like stamping, and then after just one project they are ready for more!!

The card we made was a smaller card, and very simple, which was perfect since our group ranged in age from 8 to 32.  A version of the card we made can be found on page 150 of the brand new catalog (being released July 1, 2010).  So this card also serves as a sneak peak to some of the things you will find in our new catalog.

I just love how all these brand new stampers made their own version of this card!!  Obviously this is a family of unique and crafty girls (even if Tina didn’t know she was crafty).  (My card is the one in the lower right corner.)

Will be back soon with another post…..I have many projects finished and ready to go, I’ve just gotten so busy that I haven’t gotten around to posting them, so don’t worry, I am still going strong on my goal of completing 365 projects in 365 days!

Come Back Soon!
