Hi!  I’m so excited to get back to blogging and what better reason than some exciting news!!!  I’ve been asked to be a part of the Design Team for the brand new challenge blog, As You See It Challenges!  We’ll have a new challenge every week and I’m super excited because there are different types of challenges depending on the week.  So sometimes you’ll have a sketch to work with, sometimes you’ll have a color combination, and other fun challenges yet to come.  I’ve seen a sneaky peek of some of the first ones and I cannot wait to create using them!!!  The first challenge begins on September 6th so stay tuned for that!  You can get to know the Design Team up until we begin and my day for the Q&A is today.  So head on over to www.AsYouSeeItChallenge.com and check it out…

Here’s the project I’m sharing over at the As You See It Challenge Blog in conjunction with my Q&A today:


One of my favorite cards I’ve made lately!  I found this color combo on a polka dotted dress at JCPenney!  This stamp set (Regarding Dahlias) was my first MUST HAVE stamp set in the new 2013-2014 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.  Pair that with chevrons and I’m a happy girl!  (Side note:  If you don’t have the Chevron Background Stamp, you need it!  Chevron patterned paper in whatever color you want!!!  Yes, please!)  I also love the half circle element on the right side with layers and texture created with my beloved Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine!  I am also constantly using a HOT trend in paper crafting, flagged ends!  Love love love doing that on my sentiment layers.  Of course, I had to put some ribbon on there and there are oodles of Stampin’ Dimensionals popping pieces up and creating depth in my project.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!!!  Check out below for the full supply list.  If you click on an item, it will show you that item in my Stampin’ Up! Online Store.  Please let me know if you have any questions or need anything!  🙂  Can’t wait to share more crafty goodness with you in the coming days!!!
