Color Me Some Cards

I was lucky enough to get away last weekend to go on a scrapbook retreat up in Big Bear. My friend, Debbie, a Creative Memories consultant, has organized this event for the past several years. My schedule finally worked out and it was great fun to get some scrapbook projects done as well as catch up with girlfriends.

I did bring a some new stamps, a couple ink pads, and Stickles. I had some white cardstock and used a special Creative Memories designer paper pack that we were given at the retreat. With my new Reverse Confetti stamps (Dream in Color and I Like You) plus some double-sided designer paper, here is what I came up with.

Card 1: Dream in Color

Card 2: Sunny Days

Card 2: Sunny Days

Card 3: Live in Color

These cards were so quick to put together. Sometimes it's almost easier or faster with a limited supply. When you are forced to use only what you have, you aren't distracted with so many choices. I will usually create 4 cards at a time with one design. So it was great to have a dozen cards made and ready to go to some special people.

My friend, Jennifer, just debuted her new company and these stamp offerings at Reverse Confetti. Go check out her design team and see the other creations they have come up, too.

"Pin-spired" Christmas Celebration #2

20 until Christmas Day! How did that happen?

It's been great to have a little time to browse all the wonderful projects on Pinterest. So many pins that inspire me to create something. Here's my second post to contribute to Kendra's Pin-spired Christmas Celebration. 

Going through my bits and pieces of patterned paper and some Marigold Twinery, it was easy to come up with two variations of the following card from Pinterest.

I made these cards with some special friends in mind. I hope they enjoy it. 

Don't forget to visit Kendra on her blog to see what she created. She also has another Guest joining this "pin-spired" Christmas Celebration.

Happy Wednesday!


"Pin-spired" December Christmas Celebration

Happy Monday!

Today I am excited to join my friend, Kendra, to play along with her "Pin-spired" Christmas Celebration. I wanted to challenge my creative juices this month and with Christmas as my favorite season, it was just what I needed to get me started. Being able to get creative with some friends cheering on is great fun. 

Don't you have bits and pieces of patterned paper somewhere in your craft arsenal. They were just too pretty to throw away, right? Or you bought some seasonal designer paper with every intention of using it for a specific project...that may not have happened? I had some pieces leftover from Graphic 45's Christmas Emporium collection that was too beautiful to toss.

I cut some 1 inch strips and applied them to some confetti cardstock. With some trimming and ink, it was super fast to create these simple holiday cards.

Here is the card on Pinterest that inspired my Christmas card. How easy is that to translate to other holidays with seasonal designer papers and a simple phrase?

Don't forget to visit Kendra on her blog over at Kendra's Card Company to see her daily post. She has more guest and some surprises, too. Kendra is will be posting a total of 21 pin-spired projects this month.

Happy Christmas!
