scrapbook workshops...
happy thanksgiving!

work in progress

I show so many of my finished samples, but really my stamping world is a constant work in progress. I always have several projects in motion as well as in my head at any given moment. One of the things that I enjoy, is heading down to my work area and seeing my work laid out and ready to pick up and work on....

This week I have been working on a card swap project for the new SU winter mini catalog that begins on December 1...


This swap is a larger one and so I broke it down into groups of 10 that I assemble at a time. On this card I also had to allow drying time for the inked edges. I used to be (and sometimes, depending on things) a last minute kind of person and would stay up for hours the night before something had to be sent out. I am getting better at spacing things out so I don't stress myself out doing something that I really love to do.

Here's a close up of the finished card...


This weekend I am heading to Madison, WI for the One of Kind Stamp Show this weekend. If you happen to be at the show I might be at the Inky Antics booth for a bit ;)

I finished this fun snowgirl ensemble a couple weeks ago. The snowgirls are in the latest supplement released this past summer by Inky Antics - they are too cute not to have!


All of the shimmer you see is done with the stardust pen by Sakura. A must, must have - I love it.

And now, for all of you interested in instructions for the reverse pocket card. Please reference the pocket card tutorial by Beate Johns on SCS. The reverse pocket card is done just about the same way except the pocket flap is folded to the inside of the card versus the outside as in the tutorial.

Here are a few photos of one of my cards from the last post. I have to acknowledge Michelle Wooderson again for coming up with the reverse card concept.

I hope this helps all of you who are interested in making a reverse pocket card!
