Today's the day...

... that I've been prepping for for weeks. This is a scheduled post because today I'm out of town teaching a stamp class across the state from me. I haven't posted in quite some time and that's mostly because I've been working on the projects for this weekend for quite some time- between designing, ordering supplies and prepping kits... boy have I been busy!! That also means I've got loads to show. I finally took photos of everything last night (ok... by the time this posts it will be two nights ago!) so that I could print out the instructions which means... the photos are handy for blog posting!!

What to show first? about a card and layout.

Each attendee is receiving half a pack of Bella paper as multiple projects use that paper! So todays projects were both made with the Bella paper pack which is sooo beautiful!!

The other item everyone receives is half a pack of the Heartfelt die cuts which I had so much fun creating with!!

The papers were all distressed with Desert Sand ink, I sponged the yellow flower with Smokey Plum ink because I only had a big enough circle for the center in the same color felt- The sponging brings out definition so that the flower and circle look like two different parts... like they're meant to be! The flowers and swirl are all held into place with Colonial White embroidery floss!! I Love that stuff!

It may not look like it in the photo- but the green swirled felt is actually the same color green as the paper- I LOVE This card- it is so pretty in real life.

The layout uses the same supplies: Bella paper pack and Heartfelt die cuts plus the Treetop stamp set (another favorite!!). Sorry for the shadow on the left page- it was late at night and I set the layout on a kitchen chair to take the photo- nice huh... ha!
