July 25, 2014

I finally got back in my craft room and "tried" to organize all my new goodies from Convention.  I definitely have TOO MUCH stuff!  My husband tells me that every time he walks in my room.  I am not good with parting with things----you know, Old Teachers save everything because we might use/need it!!!!!!  I wish I had a more efficient way to organize my stamp sets.  I have them in alphabetical order, which is nice, but then I have to look at all of them before I decide what to use. If anyone has a better idea, please leave a comment and let me know!!!!

I loved Nicole's sketch at Pals Paper Arts this week.  My friend, Cindy told me that my style was clean and layered, and I finally decided, I think she is right!  This sketch is right up my alley.  The Design Team has some amazing examples this week.  Stop by and check out all their inspiration!!!

I made another card today with this fun new stamp, "SNAPSHOT" that I received at Convention.  I do think this is one of my favorites!  I hope you will enjoy my card!

I used a Retired Stampin' Up! Set named Loving Thoughts for the sentiment.

Happy Stampin'!
