Copy and paste

I’m CASEing again!  Yep, artistic theft isn’t stealing when you acknowledge your source, right?  Right!  So thanks to the best upline any girl could have (and Marnie and I do!) I created something I really like without having to rack my brain for hours.  Carrie, The Artistic Avenger, seems to just pop out amazing items with no effort.  Here’s the original she created for us to make at a meeting. And here is my more generic, less Valentiney take on it.

I also made several cards from a predesigned kit that Stampin’ Up put out a few years ago.  They still make Simply Stampin’ kit but this particular one is retired.

That’s about all I’ve managed lately although I’m still trying to get my creative juices flowing again this new year.  But with the new mini catalogue and the Sale-A-Bration goodies due to arrive at my doorstep soon, I’ll be back to stamping and glueing in no time.

Like what you see?  Let me know!

Contest entries

Hi all,

I’ve been a bad girl and haven’t posting in eons!  But as the snow gently drifts down, I’m suddenly feeling the need to post. 

A while ago Stampin’ Up held an amazing contest for both demonstrators and customers alike.  The challenge was to use only My Digital Studio and SU downloads in order to create 2 scrapbook pages and a card.  I decided it was time to actual submit something.  well, I didn’t win but that’s okay.  I set a goal and achieved it and have some great work to show for it – if I may say so myself.    Now that the winners are chosen, I can go ahead and show you all what I made.

The first one is of Katie’s feet, well not her feet, but the cool shoes she picked out to wear when she started preschool this year.  we were down in Oregon and she was so excited about her sisters’ getting back-to-school shoes that she decided to find some for herself.  Turns out she has pretty good taste in shoes.

My second entry was designed around the colours and patterns of Katie’s purplish flowered pants.  We at Fort Langley and I couldn’t tear the girls away from the adventure playground.

I didn’t have to do a card – the contest was quite flexible but I thought I’d push myself and submit the maximum.  So at the last-minute, almost literally, I threw a Christmas card together.  This evening, with the snow, can you pretend it’s still Christmastime when you look at it??

So that’s what I did!  If you like what you see, let me know.  I’m going to try to be a good girl and post more.  One of my girls has already told me that I’m on the naughty list for next year, so I have a lot to do to redeem myself before next Christmas!
